Just returned from a stay at this hotel having spent a week in Madeira, the hotel is in a good location in the centre of the hotel district . Funchal centre is about a twenty minute walk and there are frequent local buses which pass the hotel, in brief I was allocated a room on the second floor at the... More

As a senior, single, lady I could not fault the hotel. Its location was very good for walking down to town and for the buses. I made full use of a Giro card (bought from the wine store at the entrance to the shopping mall about 200yds (right) from the hotel). The Receptionist printed out a couple of relevant weekend...

I stayed here 5 nights over the Easter period, for what you pay it is very very good value for money. Excellent in the middle of the hotel district. Easy walking distance to/from the centre of town if you dont mind hills (but thats all over the island). Dated but clean rooms. Half Board is buffet breakfast (bacon/eggs/ceral/fruits/tea/coffee)and Buffet Diner... More

Just back from a short break at the Girassol. The Good: Location - a good walk, but do-able, into the centre of Funchal and also the other way to the Lido area. Didn't use, but there appears to be good and frequent bus service to Funchal from nearby too. Rooms are spacious and clean. As a single traveller to get... More

A lovely week on our first visit to Madeira. We had a lovely room on 8th floor. The staff were lovely & friendly in the restaurant & reception. My husband celebrated his 70th birthday & was surprised with a cake which was lovely thank-you. The food was average & not much choice but plenty of salad & fruit. We had... More

Hotel Girassol was our home for 3 weeks in February. We travelled with Mercury Direct. The holiday was excellent value for money. The first two weeks were half-board. We found the food fresh and nicely presented with plenty of choice. Warm plates are available in a plate warmer and the hot food was always hot. The third week was breakfast... More

Just a week in this hotel. Our first visit to Madeira. Although the room (suite) was spacious the hotel itself was very dowdy. We stayed on a half board basis, meals were ok but nothing special. The swimming pool is in need of repair, with tiles on the bottom of the pool breaking off. There is a bar, we only... More

First impressions not so good. Had to ask for a change of room. Nevertheless the staff were friendly and helpful in the restaurant and bar and reception. Food in restaurant was quite good but was not warm. Maybe this could be improved. Thank you for the nice birthdaycake supplied by the hotel. Enjoyed the pool area and bar and also... More

Recently spent 3 weeks at this excellent hotel where returning guests are made to feel like old friends rather than customers. The fact that the accommodation is in a suite rather than just a room adds to the feeling of home comfort. All the staff provide fine but unobtrusive service and respond to any request. The menu is good both... More
