Hotel is very clean and is very organised. Reception staff are excellent, making first impressions very positive. They are the best measure of customer care and they rate highly. Observing them and listening, they speak a number of languages and nothing seems to faze them. I found them very helpful. Cleaning staff do an excellent job, this being one of... More

The dramatic landscape, prefect temperature, the smell of delicious food and hot coffee, the kind and helpful staff and yes some sexy locals. The Galosol hotel on the edge of the island overlooking the sea exceeded every expectation i had in the first 2... More

PROS; The room we stayed in # 4004 was functionable, good bathroom and comfortable. Although the "seaview " was a far distance, however we could see a lot of roofs from surrounding residential houses very close up. The breakfast was of good quality with plenty of choices. The young lady who checked us in whose name I was not able... More

During the Christmas break there are around 20 degrees in Madeira and it is just perfect. In Galosol, you will have a huge breakfast buffet which you can enjoy on the terrace while the sun gets up. It is quite complicated to get around the island by public bus, so I would highly recommend to rent a car. The sports... More

Great reception and service. Views over the sea are incredible and the sports facilities are excellent. There are a number of restaurants both in and near the hotel. There is a pool bar and you'll find Milton there mosts days doing an excellent job - his cocktails are superb and I recommend trying the fresh mango juice.

Having never been to Madeira before we chose this place on spec. as it mentioned having its own private beach and dive centre. For "beach" read "interface between land and sea" as it's actually rocks, which have been concreted over to form a variety of patios for sunbathing, with direct entry into around 30' deep waters and plenty of fish...

Madeira is beautiful and Hotel Galosol is super! We stayed there between 6-13 okt 2015 and really enjoyed it. Except for the beds that were a little bit too hard we found nothing else to complain about. The standard of room, food, cleaning and service was excellent. We were a swedish family of 10 people incl. 2 kids and we... More

WE stayed at the Galosol last year for a 3nights and had a very relaxing time, so decided to do 4 nights this year. This is a comfortable hotel, a bit dated and not very glamorous!!
