Just returned from this hotel 1-8 Dec. What can I say! just such a nice place with excellent staff. Food first class, on restaurant set menu with a choice as not many guests before Christmas rush so they did not have the buffet so had best deal. Very reasonable for the first 2 weeks Dec. Bus stop to centre etc.... More

The hotel is in a good location, about a 20 minute walk to the port and a further 5 to the city centre one way and 5 minute walk from the Lido area the other. The rooms are a good size and kept impeccably clean. Fresh towels and bedding daily. The only thing absent is air con, although there is... More

From the moment we arrived until the time we left the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Our room on the 10th floor was excellent, with morning sun and views over the sea. We particularly appreciated the location of the hotel - only a 20 minute walk into the heart of Funchal, and close to the Lido... More

The Lido area is famous for its endless rows of stunning hotels,restaurants/cafe's/bars & night clubs on the marina/rentals/shopping pools, sea pools closer to the center of Funchal. Girassol Hotel is on the 'estrada(road) Monumental', the main artery in & out of this zone. I stayed here & enjoyed the night. Room was well cared for and clean.The hotel itself caters... More

Just got back from a seven night holiday in Funchal, Madeira. We booked this trip only two weeks before we left after searching on the internet. So we kept our fingers crossed that it would be ok. We were not disappointed. Our room was on the fifth floor and the accommodation was of an acceptable standard. The lounge area had... More

just back from our two weeks at this hotel. Read lots of bad reviews on this hotel, not sure why they were posted. Only a few Brits and hotel during our stay and I only heard one customer complaining about the road noise. Hotel is very clean, maids do a great service. Bathrooms are refitted, and having a separate siting... More

My wife and I , booked a week in the Hotel Girassol , taking along a friend of ours for her first holiday abroad. What a shock we had, nothing like what we imagined from the photos in the Thomson brochure. Not a very impressive looking hotel, or reception area. We went up to our room, which was very tired...

We have just returned from a super holiday in Maderia where we stayed in The Girassol Hotel which was situated in a pleasant area where there were plenty of good shops, bars, restaurants and a nearby supermarket which seemed to cater for all our needs. The bus stop was only 50 mtrs away with plenty of public transport into Funchal... More
