We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Galosol: friendly and helpful personnel, great breakfast, location at the seaside (we saw the sea from our room) and near by restaurants that served good value for money meals.

Nice Hotel above the Atlantic with Great views and a staircase access into the Atlantic down the cliff. Delicious fish restaurant Atlantis above the sea also with good local fish and not expensive. Perfect starting point for all kind of activities on the island.

The rating I have marked is for the response to our complaint whilst we were staying there. We thought the complaint wasn't taken very seriously even though it spoilt out 4 night stay, the room we were allotted on arrival was really hot & although the hotel advertises air conditioning please be aware it only applies to so many months...

We visited for a short fitness break from the UK. First impression of the hotel was that it doesn't strike to be worthy of 4 stars: - the hallway, rooms, decor, carpets etc are dated - the only toiletries in the bathroom were soap in wall mounted dispensers - while there's a kettle with some tea and coffee in the...

We liked everything: the room was spacious with a nice design and newly renovated bathroom. Breakfast buffet offered a nice variety of food. We really like the breakfast area next to the pool, with comfy armchairs. Plenty of space outside on the terrace, breathtaking views. There is also a seafood restaurant with the ocean view, and a cozy pizza place...

This is a great hotel to relax and unwind. Great accomodation, delicious food - for all tastes, friendly and welcoming staff who speak many languages. The local scenery is great. Madeira is an Island of flowers and great weather.

This is a four star hotel which deserves a five star review. Although not an adults only hotel, it certainly caters for adults rather than children and there were not a lot of children, even though it was Easter holiday time.
