Very long and narrow hotel, little dated, everything clean, nice gardens and pool area, breakfast limited, wished I'd picked somewhere closer to Funchal. Staff very very pleasant and helpful. Good restaurant opposite offering eat in or takeaway. Good pizza place opposite and upstairs,

Not the prettiest hotel from the outside but very good value for money. There was a blip on our first night when we were in a very noisy room facing the road. Thankfully the next morning a lovely girl on reception offered us a choice of rooms, both very quiet and spacious. The beds were very comfy and the sheets... More

This is a classic case of a once great hotel ageing disgracefully due to lack of commitment. On arrival we were greeted with a lukewarm reception from the staff in a dull lacklustre reception area. It wasn't the most pleasant of foyers and the canteen and outside pool area significantly lacked personality. The room itself was adequate in size with... More

If you read the reviews before you go you will have a pretty good idea of what to expect. We were very happy with the value for money. The hotel is shabby and needs updating, but this is reflected in the price. We had a 'self-catering' room which had a balcony with a small table and chairs and a lovely... More

The Hotel was obviously at its peak many years ago, with decorative concrete and ceramic tiles on the outside. The hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly. The location was great, close to all of the amenities that you could desire. The pool was so badly stained that we saw no-one venturing in. We were half board, but... More

we arrived at our hotel only to find a room worse than we imagine a prison room would be & we walked straight out to find somewhere better. It really was awful. Fortunately we found a delightful alternative & our stay in Madeira was enchanting.The Gorgulho hotel should be demolished because it stands out like a sore thumb amongst all... More

Could do with more TLC appears neglected on first viewing but then you realise you get what you paid for. We only used this as a base but spent very little time in the hotel so it met our needs. The staff are very friendly, helpful and rooms were cleaned every day and replenished with clean towels etc. There was... More

The location of the hotel is quite far from the center, we went walking the first time but then always took a bus. It's not only the distance, but rather the poluted air from the busy street that was not very pleasant. The hotel itself is very old, outdated and seems not cared for at all. Starting with an old...
