Staff were very helpful and attentive. The pool area was kept very clean, as were the rooms. Never seen the game room as it was closed when we went to play in it but didn't bother us too much. Great location, 10 min walk into the main town with loads to do and you won't run out of restaurants to... More

The breakfast staff also worked hard to keep all the breakfast items replenished and clear away plates etc. There is a good choice of items at breakfast from fresh fruit salad to continental style...

The restaurant could do with a more efficient toaster or two for breakfast. There was plenty of choice so nobody would go hungry. Reception staff and maids fantastic helpful, friendly and... More

The staff were all very pleasant. My only gripe would be that we reported the verandah door didn't lock, and uptill we left it wasn't... More

This was our 10th year of staying at the Girassol and can't wait to come back again. The staff are very friendly and helpful and any faults are rectified without delay. It was very hot when we stayed in July but no problem in getting a sunbed in the afternoons as most visitors are out on trips and come to... More

All the rooms are suites so we had a good size lounge with a comfy sofa, chair, coffee table, tv, fridge, also kettle tho the hotel charges 2 euros a day for a tea... More
