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

The staff are very welcoming and helpful and our room was kept very clean, with towels and bedding changed regularly. There was a good choice of food at breakfast and dinner and this was always tasty.... More

Arrival date Monday 20th June. Room 209 There are very conflicting reports and photographs of this hotel. When I arrived at the hotel I was gobsmacked with the poor standard considering that it was supposed to be 4 star. It appears that some bedrooms have had a facelift but mine certainly hadn't. The carpets were threadbare and the floor was... More
