Hotel is good located some 5 - 10 minutesto public lido where you can enter the sea directly grom the stairs. The sea temperature is in September high enough to allow swimming comfortabely. There are both possibilities to enter the sea - either to pay entrance fee or places without any entrance fee. If you want to visit Funchal you... More

Can't fault the actual hotel itself. Yes the decor and furniture was dated but compared to what we have been used to in Greece it was absolute luxury. Great location a few minutes from hundreds of great restaurants. We were in suite 810 with sea view. Really big suite with good size balcony, flat screen TV, fridge and kettle. Lovely... More

Towards the end of our stay we were made aware that this hotel will be refurbished soon which is definitely required. However there is much to recommend it. The location is close to Funchal centre which is an easy and pleasant walk to. Despite being close to a busy main road we were rarely disturbed by this and means you... More

Stayed 9th-16th September 2016. Booked as a last minute holiday. We were aware in advance that the hotel is closing for refurbishment in October. The Restaurant will benefit from more space between the tables and (hopefully) a wider food selection at breakfast and evening meal. That aside, everything was very enjoyable and friendly. Location : Close to the seafront but... More

Stayed at Hotel Girassol for a week in August and weredelighted with the hotel. Our room on the 10th floor was perfect, like a little apartment with a sittling room, bedroom and bathroom and with much needed air conditioning and fan. Rooms very spacious, bathroom very modern with a powerful shower and lovely balcony, from which we had a pool... More

We stayed for a week at the Girassol hotel and really enjoyed it. We upgraded to a seaview room and that was a good decision as the room was great , looking across to the sea but we also had a very spacious suite with all important air conditioning ! We understood that only the 10th and 11th floor rooms... More

the Girassol Hotel was a really friendly and relaxing venue. The organisation was first class with all areas well maintained and good service throughout the hotel. The bar area was quiet but the live music on the barbecue evening was very pleasant.

The Girasol is a comfortable and well run hotel, rather pleasingly old-fashioned in some respects. Staff were always helpful and service at meals and the pool was prompt and efficient. We had a suite, which was spacious and comfortable, with a balcony giving views of the sea on one side and mountains on the other. Although there is a little... More
