Booked in for one week B n B. Junior Suite clean and spacious. Breakfast was so chaotic the food was basic and not well planned out - queues at the coffee station, butter at a separate table from the bread and jam - burnt croissants for three days! The sun loungers were filthy they have never been cleaned for years,... More

although the rooms and bar are a little dated, the staff could not be more friendly. They all remembered numbers of rooms and who was with which party. We were given champagne and fruit on the birthday of one of our party. No complaints.

Hotel set out in apartment style. They should get rid of the brown carpets which gives a dowdy and dated appearance to rooms although all spotless. Nicely located 30 min walk from town centre or €6/7/8 depending on traffic taxi cost or €2 bus ride. The food in hotel is varied and excellent dinner time but could be improved just... More

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

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.
