Booked a last minute deal to Funchal and stayed at the Dorisol Buganvilia and had a very comfortable stay here. I was allocated a room on the seventh floor looking East over Funchal bay which had fantastic views to the harbour. Check in was quick and efficient and all staff from the receptionists, restaurant staff and the cleaners were very... More

excellent value. Lovely friendly staff (Hi Fatima!), beautiful sea view, hearty breakfast. whats not to like. we will be back very soon as we love madeira and always use one of the dorisol group hotels. Have also stayed at estrelica, sister hotel which is also excellent, slightly more expensive, but also a bit steeper climb to get too!

This hotel is in a good location, with restaurants nearby. However, I was disappointed by the hotel itself. The public areas are tired and in need of updating - the bedroom was fine if a bit basic but there was no soundproofing at all. We were staying on the 10th floor and could hear the road noise quite clearly all... More

Visited here last week for 2 nights. Have used this hotel before and find it acceptable for a couple of nights B & B, however I would have to say that now it is looking a little tired and could do with some redecorating. Also the pool area needs a facelift. Pool is very clean, but the astroturf does nothing... More

Is away from downtown and in holiday seasons is difficult to get seats in the shuttle. We´ve enjoyed our stay, our room had an excellent view and a small kitchen where we can prepare light dinners. It´s excellent when you´re travelling with kids. The housekeeping was excellent, but the reception staff not so friendly and helpful.

Holiday booked at the last minute and after reading previous reviews. We arrived early so our room was not ready but not a problem went and got milk from the mini supermarket across the road and were given Maderia wine and honey cake to try the first free samples of many. Room was on the 8th floor with great sea... More

First impressions should not always count. My first impression was of a rather sterile and quite dingy building. Floors are black and walls are tiled, lighting during the day makes the reception area a bit forbidding (if I was partially sighted I would be concerned about the stairs from the lobby to the first floor.) Having said all that I... More

The hotel is quite nice. The warm indoor pool was really good, since we visited in january. The apartment was clean and generally in good condition, although the joints in the tiles was a bit black. Other that that it was fine. We liked the kitchenniche and the oceanview. We stayed at the hotel with a lot of elderly people,... More
