Good hotel but poor food.

There is for me one to criticize: The selection of food is for a 4 star hotel very modest and for someone, not every day fish food a disaster (there was only one meat or poultry dish on the day). Activities such as hiking are companies on the ground. Here i recommend hiking with asi or Madeira explorer. A diving (manta diving center) and a mountanbikeverleih are available in the hotel. read hotel review

We enjoyed the christmas and the new year in this owner-managed hotel and can only good things to say. The staff is attentive, natural and friendly, which especially in the light of the eurokrise and their financial impact on the people not high enough be praised knows. Outstanding we found the fresh and qualitatively very high-quality meal with spices and herbs, which one with us in any restaurant, as unfortunately as' politically incorrect ' apply. Although from our point of view more than enough meat dishes, preferred some guests the thick steak at an external restaurant. For people, the healthy ... and efficient want to hold, this hotel is perfectly suitable. Very positive is the cleanliness. Given the standing wetterwechsels and the partly strong winds, it is no easy task, the resort in order to hold. Negative we noticed only a few of our fellow countrymen. So weighted a lady, that in the classes, no english spoken will. We have two weeks absolutely negative experience: in addition to a very high sports and educational level of coaches we could convince us, that they all speak english well. You should just their own lack of fitness not by the questionable arguments concealing. What the englischkompetenz is concerned, may in Germany very many trainers as well as restaurant employees, bus and taxi drivers or hairdressers on the level, we in the Madeira experienced, take an example. In the on-site gym offers a range of les mills classes offered. Under this system, we have for many years in Germany trained and were happy, so in the courses and competent treatment to have been. Surprisingly we were always the only guests in the courses. Our very special thanks to fábio, liliana, Ricardo and Tony, with joke and charm some from us' herausholten'. Despite the fantastic food we could our figure and are well-equipped, again in our tä kwon do training involved. If the level of cleanliness in the hotel not enough, can - a good condition, directly from the hotel from steep up and down jogging. Another positive detail, the mobility of guests guaranteed, the not very mobile: the express bus Funchal-caniço stops right in front of the hotel. Our conclusion: we have a beautiful holiday, which we love to recall. read hotel review

We booked the trip as a last minute deal with TUI. The aim was an active holiday for a week in a pleasant climate. We had a rental car (can definitely be recommended - 75 Euros for 5 days were a great investment) and used the hotel only for sleeping and breakfast. In the evenings, maybe some sport and swimming in the sea. The double room at the best available rate was excellent, partial sea view from the road side (cul-de-sac but uphill), you can sometimes hear the noise (cars rarely drive along here, but if they do, then you ... can hear them). Street located in the direction of the entrance. Room was tidied every day. Room was a little dated, but we didn't mind at all. Unfortunately, I had to work for the first two days. Because that can always happen with me, I always book a hotel with a business lounge. In the one at the Galosol it was impossible to do any work. It was out of the way, but not suitable for working (couches and very low tables). I therefore moved to the pool bar. There is wireless internet access and the tables are much more pleasant. It wasn't very busy, so I was easily able to work there. In the summer, this would surely be very different. We were a bit disappointed by the pools. In a sports hotel I would have expected a pool in which you can swim properly (a 20-metre swimming pool at the very least). There are several pools: the one at the pool bar and Ondomar restaurant (outside) was small and curvy, maximum length maybe 8 metres. This is no good for a serious swimmer. The same is true for the pool at the sea. A further pool (angular, about 10 metres in length) is located in the fitness area. The chlorine smell, however, makes it impossible to swim there. I did not even stay there for 10 seconds. When you enter the room, you immediately have a scratching sensation in your lungs. We didn't go into the water at all. The fitness centre is ok, quite large for a hotel, especially with the squash courts. However, locals also came to train. Still, we always found space and did not need to wait for equipment to become available. Breakfast was extensive. It was the same every day - but since there was plenty of choice, we didn't mind. Apart from breakfast we never ate in the hotel (and have not regretted this decision). You are more flexible this way, do not have to be back at the hotel at a certain time and can eat during a tour. We can't comment on the quality of the food in the hotel, however, as vegetarians it would probably not have been easy (there are relatively few vegetarian options on Madeira). read hotel review

    As mentioned, we had a best price. Room. Location was in the lowest floor, so floor '-4' under the front desk. Was so far no problem, nice far from the fitness studio noise and start also without neighbors next door or above! Room and bathroom are generous. We didn't mind the aged look of the room and the tube tv was buzz was also no problem - for the news it was enough. It was clean! But also for a cheap room not is: In the bathroom were disgusting rust spots on the deckenpaneelen. When the room above us changed (noisy!) Leaked water through the panel. The mystery solution: the bucket (!) Between the paneleen and the concrete pavement was overflowed... There was a huge bucket in the cavity and started the waters of the broken pipe in the bathroom above us on!? At least, the engineer came immediately and we could without problems a room further drag. Why assigns such a room? This lack was not for a few days knows! The room cleaning was sadly not so 100%. Towel on the bidet was not replaced, drinking-water bottle not refilled, toilet paper not replenished... Luckily there was still tissues!

    The breakfast was good and delicious! Great fruit salad, the not only from melon was. Cheese, sausage, cake and yogurt were also times easily modified. We enjoyed it - particularly since such a breakfast on a mostly brits visited island rare to find. Here shows, that the guests were mainly from Germany come. Pancakes, bake beans and sausages but there are also... Further so! Less we liked the pizzeria! Service also here super friendly and quick... But what makes the pizzabäcker only? This did not much with a italian. Pizza to do. Much too much gravy and cheese; completely overloaded - probably well intentioned, but no pizza like it should be! Pool bar was not so inviting - little to no ambiance! Capoeiro pub is nice and cozy!

    In things friendliness the hotel scored full. Whether reception service, staff in the restaurants... Here there are full marks. Great foreign language skills and always willing to help! Further so! Technician immediately to the place, as the safe not more to lock went! By the way a safe - a includierung would be very nice!

    Here there is unfortunately deduction. We had due to the internet appearance have a great sports area expected. The equipment was however to a large part of bygone time. The gives the video have a different impression... We were disappointed! If classes run one needs nearly earplugs... Partially find this in the squash court instead of... The blasts so, that you also in the lower area the corridors sounds (yes, they were the best-price-rooms!). The studio always well visited - cardiogeräte are then too little; tip: sa and so is nice and empty! Really bad i found the indoor pool! The tiles could need a high pressure wipers use and the small pool smells bad after chlorine. If then still water aerobics in the chill-out the sauna really lost. Somehow has nothing to do with a spa. We saw the 'garden sauna' in the atlantico looked at... In a tiny corner in the garden there was a 'garden', then an outdoor shower - that was it! Bathrobe are liable to pay the costs - sorry? Sporthotel? Changing rooms and shower area let time outside! In the spa, we are unfortunately not... At the entrance it smelled so strongly like incense, that i again turned off am! Take a picture! Maybe i just expected too much?

    As already several times mentioned only about 100 meters to the bus stop. From there you can either by the express bus relatively quickly after Funchal or with the 'normal' bus over the ' village = so Canico' in the capital; lasts stop longer and is very twisty. Unfortunately there are in c. de baixo countless inheritances of free current dogs... With intense sunshine smells the here and there already very unpleasant. The promenade from the Riu is now also not really a feast for the eyes! The way to the village is not attractive and offers little for the eye - but to improve their condition! Much empty in terms of restaurants and shops. This also applies to the village! In the Canico-center are perhaps 42 shops still 10 occupied. The whole place looks it up to a few exceptions rather dull from.

The Galosol Hotel has 4 stars and completely deserves very good evaluations. If you have to complain about something here, it will be of a very high level. I personally didn’t only like having coffee at breakfast and the hotel was badly soundproofed. But for all fans of diving who are looking for good value and a good diving base in the best location, in connection with a great hotel, this place is a must. Everything was very clean, all the staff very friendly and skilled, the breakfast buffet had a good choice, a very nice pool area (indoor and ... outdoor pool), the bus stop no more than 100 metres away, and shops and restaurants in a 5 minute radius, leaves nothing to be desired. read hotel review

Causal we had the hotel galomar. However, we got an upgrade and moved into the galosol resort. I can therefore this of course also only rate. I have read, that it in the galosol 50 standard rooms, 57 luxury rooms, 2 master suites, 4 studios with kitchenette, 5 suites with their own jacuzzi and a bungalow with its own private garden. We had a standard room, which suited us from the beginning super well pleased, also, because it was very clean. We had only booked overnight accomodation with breakfast.

    The size of the room pa ßte us optimally. Only criticism is to be perhaps, that the wooden door to the bathroom but once must be renovated. Perhaps a larger counter space on the sink. Otherwise there is nothing to moan about. In the room is a large closet with a safe, tv, minibar, kettle, everything was there. The air conditioning system we did not use, there was no day for us here hot. Everything was very clean.

    In restaurant ondamar we took the breakfast. Here everyone could always find something, which after its taste. Further there was the restaurant Atlantis. Here there are fish and seafood. We ate here twice in the evening, it was very delicious. There is a pizzeria, here, we also have tasty pizza. The pancake house, we did not use. At the pool bar was from 15:00 to 17:00 happy hour. In capoeira pub we often with a Latte and a glass of beer in the evening drink. Everywhere it was pleasant and clean. The rates are in my opinion a little below those in Germany.

    Of onda revital lounge massages, spa, wellness & co,. We did not use. We used the gym. The equipment was not old, but not the newest. We were able to leave our training always well come through. The cleanliness was i really loved it. To the beach you could either climb stairs or a lift. For guests is here free admission. If you stay here and Madeira 're looking for of sandy beaches, is wrong here! We like these concreted decks and ladders in the very fresh atlantic to rise, we have no problems. Scarred someone but the climbing ladders, so there is a pool, which regularly with fresh seawater filled. What's also worth mentioning is the manta diving center, which is right on the beach is established. Since we however rather snorkelers are, we didn't use it. And still always came a friendly 'good morning' from which over!

    The hotel is situated on the south-east coast of Madeira. The distance to the place Canico is 2-2.5 kilometer, to the airport it was 8 kilometer, after Funchal 12 kilometres. Not far from the hotel there is a spar market, where its daily things at to some extent moderate prices. In the property there is also such a small shop. From the reception, it was perhaps 150 meters a bit uphill to the nearest bus stop. From there buses to Funchal.

There are many diving schools that are better than the one in the hotel, what a shame! (with respect to service and diving trips) read hotel review

The sports facilities of the hotel is really great. Diving, fitness centre, various sports. Organization of the rented cars very well. Other information could always very competently be given. Very well-kept 'beach'. The hotels on the promenade Canico (for example Riu hotel) had a very dirty area on the sea. Because we on the day of departure at 6:00 early picked up, we received on the eve of a breakfast-lunch-tray on the room ☺ read hotel review

Differently than we expected, the hotel galosol on arrival first a rather inconspicuous impression. The lobby seemed a bit dark, not necessarily inviting, somewhat confusing and winding. To condition and cleanliness there was nothing to quibble, almost perfect. In the lobby, pool and bar area, free wi-fi available, unfortunately not in the rooms. To the guests of the hotel were during our stay mostly ladies and gentlemen of the older generation from the german-speaking countries, which we however not when felt negatively.

    Our sufficiently large, very clean double room with the number 4015 and a partial view of the sea, seemed recently renovated. It was with closet, bathroom with shower, hair dryer, fridge included minibar, kettle, telephone, satellite-tv, large closet, sideboard and sitting area. On the balcony there was even a clothes line is required.

    The galosol is only one of three mutually hotels. The three hotels are located along the steep coast on a large Areal with adjacent restaurants and bars. The restaurant of the galosol we used only for taking our breakfast, but the dinner for posted board of the galomar and galosol served is. The breakfast buffet left nothing to be desired. Muesli, fruit salad, yogurt, various jams, cheese, sausage, ham, freshly and individually for each guest prepared egg dishes, etc. Very positive note, different sorts fresh eurobread, rolls, Baguette, as well as croissants and rosinenbrötchen formed the frühstücksgrundlage. The pizzeria hotels we visited twice and were always very satisfied. Of the fish restaurant 'Atlantis' we can not say. Very friendly and polite from the waiter treated, a tuna, as well as a schwertfischsteak serves. The consistency of the fish was dry and rough. Shame about the valuable fish, which from the chef. In general the prices were, in comparison with the german price level, rather cheap. All in all it was 6 suns. But due to the blunder in 'Atlantis' only 5 suns.

    When we arrived we were friendly, but a bit cold welcome. Impressive are the outstanding foreign language skills of the staff. Unfortunately confirmed this fact the convenience of the guests, not closer to the language of the host country to make. Embarrassing: from and we heard from guests a 'thank you'. Our room was cleaned every day and always cleaned very thoroughly, and the extraordinary friendliness of the cleaning staff was positive. A cause for complaints during our stay in any way.

    The galosol, as sporthotel galosol luguru offers a wide range of leisure activities, in accordance with its name. However, first we must after arrival in this somewhat nested and winding hotel only once an overview of the various locations provide. On the large outdoor terrace with a magnificent view of the atlantic ocean there is a small shop and enough space, as well as loungers for sunbathing. Below this terrace is a fitness centre, a squash area, a small indoor pool, a sauna and a massage parlour. The biggest plus for us:no animation, no music, just a pleasant quiet. If you want you can, at its couch relax without being disturbed. Next to the galosol the hotel is galomar. Here leads an elevator directly at the steilküste down to a saltwater pool, a diving base and the entrance over stairs in the atlantic ocean.

    The location right next to the coast in the sunny south-east of madeira, makes the galosol to an optimal starting point for island trips with the rental car. Impressive is the view from the large terrace of the atlantic ocean and the 25 kilometers away ilhas desertas. Thanks to its good traffic connection, the airport, as well as Funchal in 10-15 minutes. In the more immediate vicinity of the hotel are several restaurants, as well as a few small shops and cafes. For friends of a night life, probably a place to stay in Funchal to, because in the hotel was from 9:00 p. m. peaceful quiet. Ideal for guests relax and want to relax. In the immediate vicinity, a bus stop, buses from.

    I had only booked accommodation and breakfast. What i personally really liked, that the buffet not so overly overloaded was. I knew that from other hotels, where one in the morning already 20 different sweet bits can pick but none of which really tasted good. Here everything was well arranged, but what it is like that then also really good and there is something for everyone.

    Entertainment there is not enough, i think. We would have liked but we didn't use it. It was beautiful, quiet, on the pool. I've never experienced something like that and that was so relaxing! There is a gym in the hotel. Here one can courses visit. These are usually either in the morning or evening. Here is the indoor pool. The studio we only used it once. Here everything was ok. Sportily seen one has here all possibilities. If diving, snorkeling, hiking, yoga, cycling. Both independently, and guided tours.

    Although the airport is not far away you noticed of it nothing. Overall, we found the location of the hotel very good. Just round the corner is a small supermarket, bus stop, and several restaurants where you can go to meals in the evening. However nothing more. We found personally but also good sunday To the sea one arrives either over an elevator or over a staircase. A there is no beach here, however a entrance into the sea and a small children's pool where including the tauchneulinge their schnuppertauchgang make. Children should definitely ' schwimmsicher' are. For smaller children not suitably, since you right in the sea. But to snorkels and swims great.

The friendliness of the staff, as well as the beautiful location of the hotel are the pluses of the galosol hotels. The access to the sea is through a lift in the golomar hotel (a short walk). It could be clearly better evening entertainment offered. The music program in the 'open-air bar' is too loud to talk to. For children no programs. Access to the gym is children unfortunately be prohibited. The golosol, so that advertising, the large fitness area free for guests to use is, unfortunately you have to but for loaning the squashschläger but 7,50 Euro pay. ... We had booked half board and the offer of the dinner very disappointed. The choice was limited and always the same. All meals were in sauces' drowned '. Sometimes was also the offered quantity for the still present guests were a bit small. For the pizzeria and the fish restaurant you need a reservation. It was for adults a amount charged, for my child i always had to a crmemo 'fight'. Very positive was, that for children, to demand a special kid has been made. The offer of restaurants in the area is so large and the better quality, so that one only breakfast book. The safe in the room must be paid expensively (10,50 Euro per week). There is the possibility tea or in-room coffee making facilities, but also for money. In a 4 star hotel you should also in the rooms or in the entire free access to the internet and not only in 3 small designated areas. Generally i would the galosol again, but only with breakfast. read hotel review

Rooms are not the description in the catalog. This leads to many all = unnecessary burden on employees and of course tourists (with good evaluated-as changing managed). Safe must be paid extra-for a 4 star hotel unusual; it is also not everywhere at the hotel wi-fi! The food is varied - but very strange sets of the food.

    We had ' the special rooms' booked. It is not in the main building galosol, but on the other side of the street in the building even the pizzeria houses. Even here one noticed, that has been recently renovated. The room was smart, clean and had a beautiful view of the garden and the atlantic ocean. Especially outstanding i liked the very quiet air conditioning and the silent minibar stress. Finally times a room, in which no kühlschrankkompressor the use of ear plugs required! Wonderful! It would be really at the time, that manager of other hotels in the galosol descend and look around, what details of people happy!

    The main restaurant galosol was excellent, there was a lot of value on healthy and balanced nutrition. Often come food from the region and of course fresh served in buffetform. Hygiene and cleanliness were also not more to improve. The food tastes very good. Finally, a hotel in which one also 'critical' meals without concerns could eat. Even people with lebensmittelintoleranzen in mind and without gluten dishes out. Except the main restaurant there is also a pizzeria and bar, as well as a seafood restaurant, which also very good food and snacks. At the restaurant it could be, that the food may be a bit too typical of the country with very much oil prepared, you should better before know. Although the hotel very high value on a ressourcenschonenden dealing, and with several umweltpreisen was excellent, you will find in the main restaurant sometimes cod and tuna, like so some other species completely over-exploited and the stocks in the atlantic are at high risk. This clouds something the very high overall impression and, the hotel itself set seems to have made.

    We give the suns actually always rather critical, but also here we could only give all of the points. You can tell, that the hotel over several generations run is.

    We were for diving in Madeira, but the majority of the guests will probably for hiking as we have seen. Guided hikes are also offered, which we here but cannot take, since we didn't use it. But a few words to the diving station: The diving station manta diving center is located on the hotel area. One drives with a lift down to the lido, there is also the basis. The base has monday -saturday From 9 to 17 o'clock open, in the high season also sundays from 9 to 13 o'clock. At 15 o'clock you can the last bottle of get, until 16:30 o'clock should be from the water, since the bottles before end of workday still newly filled. A dive with its own equipment costs 2 5 €, nitrox 3 €surcharge. The reef has four hooks and numerous spots, their exploring already times 10 dives or more in use. The countryside under water is rocky and bitter, the biodiversity tropical reefs is accustomed will be disappointed. The atlantic is here now times no warmwasserrevier. Btw... The water temperature was at 20 degrees, a 7 millimeter plus unterzieher can certainly not hurt. Depending on the waves and water level can the stop work will, since the ladders no flossenleitern and you also with strong waves the fins in the water must. Not always totally harmless...

    Distance 10-15 minutes from the airport, but no aircraft noise that detracts from the idyll. The capital funchal is also with the express bus in 20 minutes. The bus stop for the bus just a few meters away. There are restaurants on the hotel grounds and in the more immediate vicinity, a mini market with moderate prices for water (6 liter 3€) is right around the corner. The resort is located in the first row at the cliff with a wonderful view of the atlantic ocean and beautiful garden. Can a better location?

Nice comfortable hotel. It is unfortunately not quite up to the standard of a 4 star hotels. What is noticeable is the organization of the work of the staff, for example, in the midday at the pool the floor mopped, also under the bed and the couch on the you just want to relax. The service during the buffet in the evening (order the drinks) very uncoordinated, only nobody comes the orders, then 3 service forces in the space of a minute. The hotel had a homey feel, the owner pays attention to environmental aspects, for example, there is the ... breakfast on the tables no blankets, only a napkin and cutlery. There is also only large coffee mug, with which one the coffee yourself must, this has the flair of a cafeteria and was not really comfortable! The breakfast itself is very varied and good. Because the hotel is very nice, it is a bit a shame, that in some places in the outdoor area, for example. At the pool (floor tiles broken, the wood on the sun protection is, must urgently be deleted.) Renovation! The hotel we can but definitely recommend it, as it really is only small problems are, and you a great time spend can! read hotel review
