Since last time, I still say that its location is great and is still a great place to stay, however is showing the signs of its age, rooms are really tired and pool looked grimy.... Restaurant is in big need of refurb. But as I said still an ok place to stay, but if not refurbished won't keep up long.

It’s very cheap to stay here, and is reflected in a bit of wear and tear to the decor (broken tiles, marked carpet etc.) but it’s great, very clean, large rooms, great balcony, get one facing the Atlantic with views to Funchal and the mountains and of course out to sea. Our room had a TV with 4-5 English channels,... More

The location is ideal, and the views are lovely, but the hotel itself is very basic, 60's style decor which is not of a very good standard. The bed linen and towels whilst clean are worn and past their sell by date. The hotel is surrounded by many restaurants to eat at, and is within easy walking distance of Funchal... More

The must rank as the ugliest hotel in the world!! But don't be put off, inside it is spotless, yes it's a bit shabby however the price we paid for 9 nights b/b for 2 was £366 so we weren't expecting the Ritz. Our room was on the 9th floor and had fabulous veiws over the Atlantic Ocean and the... More

Breakfast buffet is included and very nice with bread, eggs, sausages, beans, milk, fresh fruit, ham cheese, yoghurt etc. Friendly staff! Our double room was very small but had a great balcony with sea view. Good beds. The pool area was a bit disappointment - you can swim and sunbath but the whole area needs a big renovation! I complain... More

Our 8th visit to this hotal and we keep coming back because, despite its 70's style exterior it is clean and comfortable with excellent chambermaid service and friendly, professional and helpful staff. It's close to shops and restaurants and there are bus stops just a few yards from the entrance. There is also a lovely park and the start of... More

The Hotel Gorgulho has an exterior facade about as appealing as it's name, but once inside the staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and traditional, slightly old-fashioned, but pleasant. The food is good, with excellent service. If you stay on Bed & Breakfast, there is a range of lovely restaurants within 5 minutes walk. The Hotel is... More

As others have said, a basic hotel, but it has its advantages - located on the main strip in the Lido area, handy for supermarket and places to eat, frequent bus service to Funchal, Monte and the western villages. The rooms are serviceable but need updating - bathroom had cracked sink unit, broken tiles on the floor and swollen door... More

So yes ... this is one ugly looking building. So yes ... they could improve overall on the quality of the rooms ... If you however are on a budget holiday ... you really shouldn't complain.
