It is worth to know that the reduced ratings of this hotel are probably the result of above all too high expectations. One must know that the specifics of the island of Madeira was that it was not so accessible to mass tourism. It is also far from continental Europe, so it is more expensive to get here. Also for these reasons, more expensive hotels dominate here. Those that are cheaper are mainly hotels built in the 20th century and have not been renovated for years. Hotel Mimosa is characterized by the old equipment (80s), but it is very clean here. There are two major drawbacks - often one employee handles reception for two hotels. The second minus is the scourge of pigeons on the balconies (even on high floors!). Please ask the owners to take some steps, because the pigeons unfortunately even enter the hotel rooms. These are birds that carry many parasites, also dangerous for humans, eg Argas reflexus.

Thank you for your review of our Hotel Mimosa. We offer spacious rooms with kitchenettes and balconies, and pride ourselves in the cleanliness of our premises. As to the pigeons, unfortunately very often our guests feed them in their own balconies, and they get used to this. We will take steps to try and avoid this as much as it is within our power. We hope to welcome you back in some future trip to our lovely island of Madeira!

Well located in Lido area. Funchal centre and some shops (e.g Pingo Doce) reachable by walk.
Basic and a bit dated hotel. There's lack of a/c and wifi in the rooms. A little noisy because of building works nearby.
Parking available for free.

n holiday with 3 generations of family on the 8th floor, Located on a Steep hill which was inaccessible for the 80 year old ( but that is not the hotels fault)
Hotel is multinational, close to a few bars and restaurants 20 mins. walk into the centre
The Room was ok, it had Air Con( I was later told on the way home that it was the only floor that had air con, and other guest had been opening the fridge door to cool the room)
with a kitchenette, we never used the kitchenette but it looked functional
We shared a towel for 2 days as the chamber maid only left one bath towel (presumed they had run out )
We tried to have a lay in one day( 9 am) only to be woken up by the chambermaids having a heated discussion outside our room

There is a heated pool which was needed for the children as the main pool was deep and very cold

The Breakfast was bad quality hot and cold food, the problem was chasing the staff all the time for cutlery cups and plates and they just could not be bothered, in the end I gave up and used forks to stair my coffee very poor service
The lunch was the bare minimum fish meat chips and dry pasta?
the funniest thing was the snacks between 4 and 6 which was ham cheese in a Tupperware container, sliced bread and a toaster, which you had to DIY, every day the same
The evening meal was in the dining room, a selection of hot and cold food buffet which was OK

The entertainment was again the bare minimum

There was only 1 bar open which was the pool bar, because only a small amount of guest were All Inclusive (only Brit’s) the bar was never that busy as the other guest choose to go elsewhere and I don't blame them because the staff are so rude slamming the drinks down, it was as if the last thing they wanted to do was serve you !
at one point I wanted to tell the staff how much I had paid for the holiday to see if that would shame them into improving their service

They say you get what you pay for, on this occasion that was not true,
The hotel is 3 stars but will be going down to 2 stars if the staff do not change their attitude towards the customers

I would not recommend this Hotel and I am disgusted at Thompson Holidays for selling it to me

Dated hotel but had a nice feel. Room was comfortable but very small balcony and dated. Food was terrible. Breakfast was good though. Staff were very friendly. Good bus service into Funchal about ten mins away. Nice restaurants close by. Great for the money paid

I think this hotel has received unfair reviews. Generally you get what you pay for - this is not a 5 star hotel but you are not paying 5 star prices. First of all the staff could not be more friendly or helpful; such nice people. There are good facilities; tennis court, bar area, nice pool, plenty of sun beds and terrace. We had two rooms on the eighth floor that had nice balconies and small kitchen areas; the rooms were cleaned every day. The food was a major bone of contention with all the guests and here is our view; it was plentiful with a varied menu, not haut cuisine but hey come on let's be realistic. The breakfast was as you would expect anywhere and they put on nice snacks in the afternoon. We were there for one week and ate out twice just so we could have a curry and an Italian for a change, I think if future guest adopt a similar approach there will be no disappointments. Take my word for it this a good hotel and well worth the money.
