Stayed one week at the Girassol, beginning of February 2013.
Loved the location on Estrada Monumental, about 3km downhill to Funchal center, 500m to the Promenade and about 1,5km uphill to a large shopping center.
The hotel is bit worn out and dusty, but the rooms are cleaned daily, and the bathroom was clean and spacious. The beds could have been comftier, but we slept ok and the room was quiet, facing the pool area. The breakfast was good. The pool area and garden are very nice, and the food at the pool bar seemed reasonably prised and yummy (we only had snacks there once, some other guests seemed to eat there daily). There was a lovely stray cat visiting the pool area once and a while, and luckily the staff treated him friendly as they did their human guests.
Overall a decent stay, but I do think there are newer and brighter hotels in the area with the same price range.
