Girassol Hotel, Funchal Portugal
★ ★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Portugal”, ”Madeira”, horizontal]
A welcoming mid range property with a good range of facilities but no spa. The convenient location appeals to many although some rooms at the front may suffer noise from passing traffic.
The all suite accommodation is well appointed and appears to be popular with mature couples, who appreciate the flat access to amenities and transport.
A well maintained tower block with an adjacent four storey roadside annexe. All rooms have a small protruding balcony with metal railings or a larger recessed option with flower boxes.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Built Year: 1973
Informal but stylish interior is welcoming and well presented with a large lobby and reception area leading to a relaxing lounge accommodating red and gold striped seating.
The restaurant is especially inviting with a piano located in a raised alcove and pristine linen and red cushioned wooden chairs. The bar is homely and comfortable with dark furnishings and much memorabilia on display.
A quiet, split-level rear garden is well tended with a good display of greenery and a plentiful supply of sunloungers beside the pool, which looks rather small when considering the number of guests accommodated.
A shaded poolside snack bar has a good supply of seating and a charming terrace has white furnishings often used for afternoon tea.
