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 where an international buffet breakfast is served, the Sunset Restaurant offering a full à la carte menu, and the open-air Dockside Pool Restaurant & Bar.

In addition to 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 dispersing water to the island's parched southern regions.
