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

Great place. Scenic views. Beautiful rocky coast. Diving is very conveniently located right on the shore of the hotel. Breakfast variety and taste. The hotel decor is quiet and relaxed. Convenient location to most of excursions and places of interest. The clean sea is too cold for swimming in April . In general, do not want to leave, There is... More

We spent a week at hotel galo which surprised by the huge variety of offers, great food & excellent massages. You could choose to just be & relax in the huge area of the hotel or become active. The service in any area is super friendly and pro-active and mostly exceeded expectations. Enjoyed the SPA & highly recommend to ask... More

Exactly one year after our marriage (14/09/2013) i just think it wouldn’t be fair not to review… We had a fantastic wedding celebration in this lovely hotel, all the personnel is very kind and attentive (our very special thanks to goes to Ms. Silvia Rodrigues, our “guardian angel” for all the patience, kindness and sympathy).

Stayed here for 4 nights from 23rd June 2014 and must say what a fantastic place! In summary, only a few brits here but I think that is more to do with the UK contractors not having contracts in place but I believe there will be more presence in the next few months making this resort more accessible through many...

We chose this hotel for the fact that it was outside Funchal and we were not disappointed. The bus ride into Funchal is an adventure in itself and the staff on reception were always there to help with any queries. The room was a lovely size and suited us well. There were a few eating places outside the hotel complex... More
