We stayed at the Galomar on a health and fitness break, where use of the gym and a number of 1:1 fitness tuition sessions was part of the package. The hotel is located about halfway between the airport and Funchal, right on the coast. Rooms are spacious and clean, ours had a small balcony. The pool area is spacious and... More

I recommend to choose the express one, 15 minutes and you are in Funchal against 30-40 minutes by usual bus. The bus station is near the hotel Galosol. I had... More

I was in mid september, spend two weeks and have found in Madeira something very special. It was far beyond common summer holiday. Hotel is placed in Canico de Baixo (Lower Canico) right beside water. Well, there is elevator for the beach where you can choose pool or ocean swimming. If you want to explore Madeira, there is excellent rent-a-car... More

The Galomar is part of the Galo Resort Complex. The rooms in the Ondamar complex are more luxurious, but the Galomar is cheaper. If you stay in the Galomar, you can use all facilities of the Galo Resort. The Galo Resort has a very nice fitness center that guests can use. The Hotel is a good location for diving and... More
