I have only been on holiday but it is a beautiful island though very hilly. We stayed near Funchal which has a fascinating old town and nice shops/cafes/restaurants and the cable car of course. There is a lovely newish shopping mall just outside Funchal. The bus service was excellent.
The airport is problematic when crosswinds are high and only specially trained pilots can fly in and out as experienced this last week - Easijet planes were not allowed to fly in and out because of the wind. Apparently too big and people had to stay an extra week or book onto a smaller plane.
