We stayed here for two weeks in june. I loved the ocean view,the variety of restaurants and opportunities to just relax in the sun or in a pool. The hotel is also very close to a bus stop so it's very easy to travel to Funchal if you want. Most of the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Quiet and nice rooms, good breakfast, and excellent service. The hotel has a very good location close to the sea, as well as a pier (accessible either via stairs or an elevator) from which you can go swimming. There are also outdoor and indoor pools.

Sisters trip with a 7 year old boy, so much to keep everyone happy. Breakfast was fantastic with plenty of variety. The staff were all super friendly and accomodating. Rooms were comfortable & clean. Excerise classes were to a very good standard & the snorkelling was very professional, safe and fun!

Stayed at Galosol the first week of July 2016. It is very close to both the airport and the main city of Funchal (within 10 minute drive). The resort is very clean on the premises and in the rooms.
