We booked this hotel knowing it was due for refurbishment. We have visited Madeira many times and passed by the Hotel Gorgulho and know that it has a great position close to the sea but it will never win any prizes for it's appearance. It does have some things which make your holiday special and the first thing is the...

I stayed for one night only: the New Year Reveillon. I chose the hotel because the price was only 60 EUR and it was the only one available under 200 EUR/night. The hotel is advertised as 3 star, but its 2 stars maximum. Very old, smells very bad in the room and even worse in the bathroom, the water pressure...

We checked into this hotel at around midday 30/9/2016, friendly receptionist showed us maps of area and lidos, I asked her does the hotel not have a swimming pool and she pointed to out the back. On the desk was a laptop showing pictures of what the rooms would be like once modernised. She told us we were lucky our...

Went there with my friend last year. Yes it's not the best looking building from outside but the price and the room was really good. We asked for a room with sea view and it was granted. We were on high floor so the view was amazing. The breakfast was similar every day but more than enough to get you...

We had a lovely week based here. The hotel is basic, and not pretty, which you can probably guess from the other reviews, and I guess this splits people's opinions. The amount charged (ours was was a room-only package deal which included flights) is so good that if you are aware of it and prepared for it, it is a...

I was very apprehensive about this property having read some reviews on here. True, it is ugly, it needs refurbishing but is represents amazing value for money. For €25 a night I had a comfortable room, buffet breakfast included and it wasn't bad at all. There's no in room WiFi or minibar but for that price I wouldn't expect there...

If you want luxury go somewhere else, if you want a cheap base to use to explore the island this hotel will suffice. Before you make any decisions on this hotel look at the cost, you get what you pay for. For all its faults and there are many this hotel will provide you with an enjoyable stay on the...

Very long and narrow hotel, little dated, everything clean, nice gardens and pool area, breakfast limited, wished I'd picked somewhere closer to Funchal. Staff very very pleasant and helpful. Good restaurant opposite offering eat in or takeaway. Good pizza place opposite and upstairs,
