  • January 2016
Our stay at the Galo Resort in Madeira was to celebrate our wedding with friends and family. The trip was an excellent, After a few initial hiccups we found both our stay and the wedding ceremony and celebrations carried out and delivered to the highest quality. The staff themselves did their very best to be helpful and were friendly and attentive. We could have asked for more. In particular Paulo who was in charge of the Mojitos for the drinks reception, Sonia, Martha, Nina, Milton, Cristiano and David were great restaurant staff and made the experience very warm and welcoming ... - nothing was a problem for them. David Andrade and his management staff (such as Andre) were extremely hard working and managed every detail often personally. We are grateful to everyone for making our special day so memorable. Galo Resort has already invited us back for a complimentary evening 1 year on from our wedding (a tradition in Madeira) and also a wonderful glamping experience exclusive to the resort's private beach. The whole setting is magical and has to be experienced by the discerning visitor to this magical island! read hotel review
