We stayed here as part of a package with Thompson and it was ok. There is nothing to fear staying here at this hotel. It is quite old and dated but we found it to be clean enough and everything worked. We stayed on the 10th floor and had a lovely view of Funchal. If you read all the other...

You get what you pay for and if like us you book a cheap deal you can't expect a plush hotel. However, a lick of paint in communal areas and rooms would improve the appearance. Bathroom was adequate but needed re grouting. Kitchenette was basic but we only used the facilities to make hot drinks. We were on floor 10...

This hotel was in a very cheap package holiday and was good for the amount we paid buy I would have been disappointed if we paid more. It is in a good location, up a hill, but not as far up as the sister Dorisol hotels. It is reasonably close to bus stops, and there are hood restaurants on the...

Described as a three star hotel which is probably about right. Our room was on the eight floor and we had a beautiful sea view including the harbour and we were able to watch the cruise ships coming and going. From the balcony we could also see all the hillside above Funchal which looked lovely at night time especially with...

We spent in this hotel 1 week in September. The hotel has convenient location, close to shops, restaurants, bus stop, the sea and promenade. A room was basic, with a little kitchen and balcony, did their job. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choices. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We did not use much of facilities, except of a swimming...

Madeira was beautiful and one of the best places I have ever been too. I came with my fiancé Debbie at the very end of October 2016. The holiday was great and the hotel was the icing on the cake - very good staff but one outstanding receptionist - Barbara. Never met anyone so friendly, knowledgeable, extremely patient and helpful....

We stayed at this hotel in November with some trepidation having seen some of the other reviews. However, it is one of the best value for money places we have ever stayed. I will say that if you want luxury and vast open spaces and bright spacious foyers etc. look elsewhere. The hotel is one of three next to each...

The Dorisol Bugenville could be done with a serious overhaul. The dinning room roof tiles leave a lot to be desired lots of water stains from leaks. The rooms require an upgrade, some of the floor panels moved, the roof on the balcony had around 1.5 mtr section of paint bubbled off. Externally the railings on the balconies have rusted...

Hotel tired as per previous reviews - but clean - we only paid just under 200 pounds each for bed and breakfast so can't moan - breakfast repetitive but plenty of choice - lots of restaurants nearby and all reasonably priced - would definitely stay here again - the location was just right
