Sadly have to agree with comments regarding dinner buffet. Hotel needs to up its game as at the moment food presentation and variety falls short of 4 stars. Also ambience of the dining area could do with a rethink.

This was not our choice for a hotel.. It was clean and the staff were friendly enough and in a great central location. We were all inclusive but ended up eating out most nights! The food was awfull and most definitely not 4 star standard. If you decide to eat there if your on a B&B basis think again, they...

We stayed at the Girassol for a week B&B basis in May. The hotel is very clean, staff are polite and friendly and the location is good (not too close to town but not too far away either). There is a well stocked supermarket 20 metres up the road where you can also sit outside and enjoy a coffee/beer and...

The hotel itself if beautiful and the staff are very helpful and polite. The only down side is the food. There's very little choice. Though what is there is tasty. If the food improved the hotel would be perfect.

Stayed at this hotel for 1 week in April. Generally the hotel is very good, clean, excellent staff and situated 25 minute stroll from Funchal centre. However the food was something else!! Breakfast was good particularly the soft poached eggs . Lunch was very very poor. I was shocked to see fish fingers, potato croquettes and a bowl of scrambled...

We were on a well-priced Jet2 package from Stansted. Having stayed at various 4 and 5 star hotels in Funchal (eg, Pestana Carlton, The Lince, Pestana Promenade) we found our first stay at the Girassol not at all bad. We were on a B&B basis in a junior suite rather than the more normal All Inclusive basis that most people...
