Having just returned from this hotel, can only say wouldn't choose it for a return visit to Funchal. The hotel was dated and the rooms, although clean and cleaned daily, were in need of updating and were shabby. The pillows were very uncomfortable, the beds themselves were ok. We were on the 6th floor and the views were good, obviously... More

Just back from a lovely week at Dorisol Buganvilia. As others have said, the position of this hotel was ideal, close to lots of restaurants and walkable to Funchal. It was also quiet, as it was behind the 'main' road. I think all the rooms have the same corner-style balcony; ours had a sea and pool view - lucky us!... More

Have stayed here over 5 times in the last 4 years and cant wait to return again. Dorisol team members always had time to surprise us every time we returned always had a nice welcoming gift... More

This hotel is well located and has good condition, with private kitchen in the room, sauna, jacuzzi, swimming pools, tennis court and table games and in December the prices was accessible. It was a very good stay to see fireworks on Funchal Bay

The room was Clean and tidy but basic. Bathroom was nice. Our 'kitchen-in-a-cupboard' was okay but.. the fridge shelves were broken, the lid on the bin was too and the washing up liquid provided was below expectation. The bed was comfortable though. Breakfasts weren't anything special (the coffee was dreadful but thankfully there's a coffee and cake shop called Momentus... More

We recently stayed at this Hotel from 18th to 25th January and having read some of the reviews before we went we were a little apprehensive about the standard of this Hotel, but I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. The Hotel may need a lick of paint here and there but the room was very neat and clean... More
