I loved our stay at Galosol. The staff is amazing and make you feel very welcome. Very clean with delicious food. Awesome views. I loved the sports facilities as well. Very well located. We used Lokoloko, the sports agency located just there and they are great as well, they have some great tours. We were very pleased with our stay... More

We spent 4 nights at this lovely Hotel, conveniently located close to Funchal but not right in the middle of the busy capital, and the airport. We booked a seaview room, on the third floor, which did have excellent views (worth the extra you are paying). The room was comfortable with a nice terrace and the breakfast was fine. Only... More

Stayed at the hotel for a week with HF holidays. Very clean, comfortable room with a sea view and the whole hotel both inside and out was kept immaculate. All the staff were very friendly and did all they could to help us enjoy our stay. Food was plentiful with an excellent choice at each meal. A very enjoyable holiday.

A very nice hotel, very clean and comfortable. The staff were all very helpful and concerned to make our stay the best it could be. Located half way between the airport and Funchal, it was an excellent base for seeing Madeira. Excellent choice of food,organised as an efficiently run buffet. It was easy to over indulge!

We didn't stay at this hotel but eat at the Atlantis Restaurant one lunch time. We had an excellent lunch - both having limpets then different seafood dishes. A really good location and food to match. Lady who served us was very helpful. Couldn't find the restaurant on Trip advisor hence the review here. Would strongly recommend you try it... More

From the time we were collected at the Airport by the hotel's own transport until the day we left we felt that we were the hotel's special guests. It is unusual for a large concern to be so friendly and helpful in a personal way but the staff at the Galosol achieved it in no small measure! The rooms are... More
