Stayed at the Hotel Girassol over new year and had a fabulous holiday. Funchal city centre was like Santa's grotto and the new year fireworks are not to be missed The hotel is spotlessly clean in all areas. The rooms are very spacious with a separate lounge area. The bathrooms are modern but there was a shower curtain over the...

The hotel has recently undergone a refurbishment which includes a new, stylish pool area, new bar with al fresco terrace and pristine communal areas. The hotel still has its traditional and welcoming charm with lovely staff who will ensure you have a lovely stay in Madeira. The bedrooms are...

I struggled about whether to give this hotel 2 stars or 3. I've gone with 3 as there were a couple of positives about the hotel - but largely, I was disappointed with it, particularly as it is classed as a 4 star hotel. It is definitely not! (Although it was due to be closed for renovations soon after we...

Hotel is good located some 5 - 10 minutesto public lido where you can enter the sea directly grom the stairs. The sea temperature is in September high enough to allow swimming comfortabely. There are both possibilities to enter the sea - either to pay entrance fee or places without any entrance fee. If you want to visit Funchal you...

Can't fault the actual hotel itself. Yes the decor and furniture was dated but compared to what we have been used to in Greece it was absolute luxury. Great location a few minutes from hundreds of great restaurants. We were in suite 810 with sea view. Really big suite with good size balcony, flat screen TV, fridge and kettle. Lovely...

Towards the end of our stay we were made aware that this hotel will be refurbished soon which is definitely required. However there is much to recommend it. The location is close to Funchal centre which is an easy and pleasant walk to. Despite being close to a busy main road we were rarely disturbed by this and means you...
