We have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 9 years, and would certainly still recommend it. The staff are very friendly and their English is excellent, especially the receptionists. We only book Bed and Breakfast as we like to eat out at several different restaurants in the evening so cannot comment on evening meals but have never... More

The Hotel is on the busy main road leading into Funchal.If you think this would bother you, this is NOT the Hotel for you. If you like the hustle and bustle ,then it is not a problem.I had a Junior Suite on the 7th floor with a great view to the sea I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. The staff... More

We were booked into the Girassol for a week, Bed and Breakfast, so I can't say very much about the food, except that whatever time we went down to breakfast something had run short - the fruit salad, or the coffee or hot milk. I felt that the dining room was understaffed. I do want to point out the good... More

Be patient with slow lift, food OK but don't expect to much and you will be fine. Suites large but somewhat dated, don't exprct good Wi-fi if you stray to far from reception,best near the computor and router

This was our second visit to Madeira for our Honeymoon. on our first visit we stayed at the big expensive Casino hotel. This small friendly hotel was so much better, the staff were friendly and helpful, very clean, nice little bar. We had a suite on the 9th floor with nice views over the pool. Excellent location too. We would... More

My wife and I stayed at the Girassol for 3 weeks in January/ February 2014 and we had such a wonderful time that we booked again for 2015, this time for 6 weeks. I have read several posts which I deem to be unfair. For the price that we pay, I consider this hotel to be good value for money... More

The rooms were good with lounge and separate bedroom [ although a little dated ]they were very clean and bed linen changed daily but alas no complimentary tea and coffee,which you would expect in a 4 star hotel. Christmas and New year eve gala dinners... More

Bar - filthy carpet and dead plants Outside floor covering to... More

Another lovely stay at this very good family owned and run traditional hotel. Maybe the previous reviewer had a 'rose tinted' memory of 11 years ago. The accommodation being mainly suite based is spacious with lots of storage space and a home from home feel. The general facilities are no worse than any other similar hotel and are enhanced totally... More
