Well we couldn't say anything good about this hotel, that is apart from the view from our room on the 9th floor room 906 which was just beautiful. The breakfast was passable, the room was as basic a basic gets, the beds were squashed into the space next to the balcony and we literally had to crawl up the beds from the bottom to get into bed. the beds were very hard and uncomfortable with twangy springs making turning over in the night both uncomfortable and noisy. We were bumped from the Dorisol Florisol so this was not the hotel of our choice and the location was not what we wanted which was up a very steep incline or alternatively 133 steps to climb. All in all the not best hotel experience we have ever had.

I have been to the Mimosa twice the first time the breakfast was quite nice however on my return visit I found the breakfast quality had gone down the sausages were very cheap as was the bacon and the coffee was rubbish ,on the plus side they have a large sun area with a large swimming pool also a smaller pool an gym in the spa area ,the staff are excellent and very honest I lost 100 euros and it was found by the cleaning staff and returned to me truly amazing in this day and age.if you decide to book I would advice you to book a high floor as the view is very nice

Room tip: They have a free shuttle into Funchal

We found this hotel very basic. Walls were paper thin, so there was no escape from surrounding noise. Towels are only changed on alternate days. Bathroom was dated and tired. Cracked tiles every where.
On a positive note, the reception staff were extremely friendly.
Having visited Madeira for over 30 years, this is the first time we have found a less than average hotel.

Dorisol Mimosa was at the top of a very steed drive, with 139 steps to the reception, certainly not suitable for anyone one with a disability.
The Courtesy bus picked up & set down at the bottom of the drive.
The evening meal was served in the lower hotel which involved a trek up and down the drive, The quality of the food was poor to say the least, We ate out many times and used taxis to return to the hotel.
The staff were superb, The rooms clean, But the breakfast menu was cold and limited, The bacon must have been the worst on the on the island, Needless to say we will not stay at the Mimiosa again.

Arrived at hotel,got to room to find not a very nice expierence,the pillowcases were dirty and sweaty,it was appalling,however we got moved to another room which was a slight improvement not great and had to wait for it to be made up.the whole place is in a state of repair and certainly would not be passed by EHO standards.kitchenette very basic as was breakfast. Food was very repetitive.the water coming from shower was dreadful ,just a trickle.An item of clothing went missing and was never recovered.I must say staff were friendly and helpful.overall I would never return to this hotel and certainly would not recommend it ,stay far away.

Room tip: It's hard to say ,my bad expierence was on floor 10,maybe floor 5,but in any case would not recommend this hotel
