The 5-star Pestana Casino Park Hotel was designed by Oscar Niemeyer -- the architect known for the United Nations Headquarters in New York and several buildings in Brazil's capital, Brasilia. The hotel has a good choice of restaurants, including The Panoramic Restaurant which serves an international buffet, the Sunset Restaurant which offers a full à la carte menu, and the open-air Dockside Pool Restaurant & Bar.
Other hotel amenities include a lagoon-style outdoor heated swimming pool, an indoor pool, a spa, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room, a gym, a massage parlour, a library and games room, a beauty salon, tennis courts, a pool bar and a cocktail bar with live music on most evenings.
As well as being a year-round sunshine hotspot, Madeira is renowned for its eye-catching landscapes, with jagged, chalky cliffs, black-sand beaches and imposing mountain ranges. The island is also home to the Levada walks -- picturesque trails along the mini, open canals used for distributing water to the island's parched southern regions.
