Stayed for 1 week starting 7th March and I would recommend this hotel to adults looking for a nice base from which to explore Madeira. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The beds are quite firm, which I prefer, with quality white cotton bedding. There are new flat screen TVs in the rooms which have english news and entertainment...

Friendly and attractive hotel with excellent facilities including indoor swimming, gym and spa. No beach, though rock pool swimming is available. Comfortable rooms and high quality food. Local transport to Funchal good, and overall an excellent base for exploring Madeira.

During the Christmas break there are around 20 degrees in Madeira and it is just perfect. In Galosol, you will have a huge breakfast buffet which you can enjoy on the terrace while the sun gets up.

Great reception and service. Views over the sea are incredible and the sports facilities are excellent. There are a number of restaurants both in and near the hotel. There is a pool bar and you'll find Milton there mosts days doing an excellent job - his cocktails are superb and I recommend trying the fresh mango juice.
