The hotel itself if beautiful and the staff are very helpful and polite. The only down side is the food. There's very little choice. Though what is there is tasty. If the food improved the hotel would be perfect.

Stayed at this hotel for 1 week in April. Generally the hotel is very good, clean, excellent staff and situated 25 minute stroll from Funchal centre. However the food was something else!! Breakfast was good particularly the soft poached eggs . Lunch was very very poor. I was shocked to see fish fingers, potato croquettes and a bowl of scrambled...

We were on a well-priced Jet2 package from Stansted. Having stayed at various 4 and 5 star hotels in Funchal (eg, Pestana Carlton, The Lince, Pestana Promenade) we found our first stay at the Girassol not at all bad. We were on a B&B basis in a junior suite rather than the more normal All Inclusive basis that most people...

Unfortunately there were more cons than pros with this alleged 4 star hotel. We stayed for 10 days from the 28th April 2017 in room 903. The room was comfortable and spacious with an excellent view over the sea. I'm not so sure that the room has recently been refurbished as it seemed a bit tired and worn. The cleaners...

We stayed from 17th April for one week in Room 710 (room facing road so very noisy).. Beds very hard but there was a choice of different pillows. Furniture needs to be updated. Bathroom decent size but the bath had a shower curtain, my pet hate. A glass shower screen would be sooo much better. Breakfast was OK if you...

We recently returned home from a week in Madeira staying at the Girassol. Hotel was excellent, clean and fresh, our room was a suite with plenty of room, sitting room with sitting space, fridge, kettle with balcony. Our room faced the back of the hotel, so not much of a view, but on the plus side, sun was there in...

We stayed here all inclusive recently and had a fantastic holiday in Madeira. However, the hotel is very hit and miss. The location is perfect, a nice flat walk into the old town and near some good pubs and restaurants. It was about 20-25 minutes from the airport. The staff were fantastic all week, they made us very welcome and...
