Pros: We love this hotel, the property and area is absolutely beautiful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to return!
Pros: We really enjoyed our stay at Galomar. The location and view was spectecular and we appreciated the adult friendly atmosphere. The hotel itself is not crowded even if it is fully booked - so if you do not like huge hotels (similar to us) this place is perfect for you. They even prepared a honeymoon welcome message with a bottle of sparkling wine on ice for our arrival. Thanks for caring:)
Pros: Superb 4 night stay at this hotel with my partner. Very chilled out vibe, amazing location on the cliff edge, stunning views and we especially enjoyed the easy access to the sea for snorkelling/swimming. Excellent value for money with a nice breakfast included. Great bar with sport on the TV which was a nice bonus for me being a sports fan
Cons: Beware you are expected use the sauna/steam room in the nude

Featured amenities include a computer station, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. A roundtrip airport shuttle is available for a surcharge.
Pros: Very nice hotel with big rooms equiped with kitchen. Stunning gardens around. It is a place to stay there all the time. Clean swimming pool, good restaurants and very nice, warm and helpful staff. Located 10 mins away from Funchal and the airport. Easy to reach the west, east and north of the island from there. We will repeat as soon as possible.
Pros: Beautiful hotel surrounded amazing botanical pleasures. Awesome scenery and views of ocean and sunrise. Excellent facilities and customer service.
Pros: I stayed in a suite with spa access and it was just wonderful. The ambience of the place, the beautiful garden surroundings, the friendly staff, the spa all made it very special. And the suite itself was luxurious and spacious with a lovely sea view. Overall, a beautiful place for a retreat.
Cons: The only thing I would want to see improved would be more fitness sessions available with better equipment such as yoga mats - the ones they have are not great.
Pros: The location in the centre of Canico was excellent. The hire car parking was inside and the ground floor apartment was very suitable for our use of a folding mobility scooter. We particularly liked the botanical garden tour which has over 1,000 species of trees, plants and shrubs from around the world. Having stayed here previously some 15 years ago, it was nice to see the additional apartments, large patio areas now completed with a perfect vista out to sea.
Cons: The apartment was spacious, well laid out, with full kitchen facilities, kitchen appliances, oven and hob (if required) to be self sufficient but one thing missing was a microwave cooker.
Pros: I loved the whole stay. The staff were very friendly and the grounds were amazing. The spacious spa was a plus.
Cons: The breakfast was expensive at €17 and the hot selection was very poor.
Pros: The hotel facilities, location, views, food, spa, garden and staff were amazing - 1st class.
Cons: Although the location was stunning, Canico is very quiet and does not have much to walk to as an alternative to the hotel.
When you stay at Four Views Oasis Hotel in Canico, you'll be near the beach, within a 10-minute drive of Madeira Botanical Garden and Santa Cruz Beach. Featured amenities include a business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Great breakfast as well as dinners. Helpful and always friendly staff. Interesting entertainment, for example traditional dance and songs night. Perfect and relaxing ocean view from the room balcony. Parking for free.
Cons: The wifi connection in 5th floor rooms could be stronger.
Pros: Excellent choice on the breakfast buffet. Free parking lots right outside the hotel available. Excellent dinner recommendation: The Restaurante Praia Dos Reis Magos (3 min walking distance along the beach). They serve excellent dishes! We went there every single day.
Cons: We had a room with sea view and quite close to the ocean (room no. 024). However, if you leave the window front open, you hear the swell of the sea extremely loud, esp. at night. If you are a light sleeper, definteley a point to consider. The air condition in the room didn’t work properly either, so had to deal with a lot of heat during daytime since the sun shone directly to the room all day long. Impossible to stay in the room during morning hours, the noise level produced by the cleaning ladies moving around chairs, tables and beds in the neighbouring rooms is unbelieveable. In booking.com the room was detailed to have a mini-bar, but actually available was a small, empty refrigerator, connected and put to “full power” not rendering any coolness at all. I also found the huge sink lever (somehow we got a handicapped accessible room) as well as in the shower quite disturbing while doing toiletry and showering. Last but not least, the ugly smell from the bathroom drains and toilet was making our stay even more uncomfortable. No ventilation in the bathroom either. We also expected a better coffee at the breakfast buffet for a 4-star hotel.
Pros: Excellent location, directly at the shore. Nice and supportive staff.
Cons: Breakfast lounge was very chaotic and crowded. There were far too many tables and chairs squeezed into too tiny a space. Plus, the coffee is really bad.
Pros: Where will come and stuff! Very good dinner and breakfast!
Cons: Good coffee for breakfast would be welcome
Pros: Dinner was really good. Location right next to the sea was great for nighttime walks. Beach super close by
Cons: Breakfast was a bit too western - eggs beans and meat. Not the best but their fruit are amazing, and their dinners are spectacular.
Pros: The hotel is quite nice, reception area and common spaces are lovely. We enjoyed the spa facilities which are free to use.
Cons: Breakfast was mediocre. Our biggest issue was that the air conditioning was broken in the entire hotel, and our thermostat was not working which we tried to tell them the night before the AC broke down. I went to reception to let them know that our AC was broken and was told there was nothing they could do until morning (fair) and was told to open a window (which is really a patio door). I then asked if they had any ear plugs as it was an extremely windy and loud night, to which I was told "this isn't a 5 star." Not a great start. Was also disappointed that you must pay to use the safe, which is absurd to me as it is used to protect your things from the hotel staff coming into the room, so it should not be 10 euros.
Pros: Indoor- und Outdoor Pool, Whirlpool, Fitness Studio
Cons: Much too expensive for the outer appearance and comfort of the hotel (e.g. compared to the Riu Hotel next door)
Pros: The breakfast was amazing and the staff really helpful! Even after our stay at the hotel we continued eating breakfast there while travelling on Madeira! The staff did a great job and helped us both with recommendations for local restaurants and sights!
Cons: Tiny detail that was annoying: The shower was a bit dirty and the shampoo holder fell down right when we arrived.

Pros: A wonderful place to detox and have yoga, amazing vegan food, beautiful treatments
Cons: Road noise
Pros: The location is amazing, super quiet, perfect for a relaxing holiday. The staff was very very nice, very attentive and committed to a great stay! Spacious rooms, fantastic treatments. Very good activities, facilities and comfort! I would definitely go back, simply amazing!
Pros: The hotel staff are kind and friendly and accommodated our request for a top floor room. The sea views from our room and from the relaxing room are fantastic. The beds were very comfortable and there is a pillow menu. As returning guests we were given a free bottle of water and a bowl of fruit on arrival which was a nice touch. The hotel also arranged for our transportation to and from the airport and the driver came in the Galo Resort mini bus to pick us up. Galo Resort also includes 2 sister hotels the Galomar and Galosol which we were able to visit and use their facilities. Upon arrival we booked evening meals for 7 nights and received a 30% discount. Evening meals are at the Hotel Galosol and are buffet style, several nights a week are themed ie. BBQ, Fish buffet, Portugese night. We thought the meals were excellent value and the food was varied and good quality. We also had breakfast here several mornings too. At the Hotel Galomar we used the infinity pool facility and the spa, where I had a luxury pedicure with Carla and my husband used the sauna and relaxing room/sun balcony. At the Galo hotels in Canico there were visitors from many countries but mostly German. Most staff can speak some English as well as German and Portugese. There is a diving school at the Lido, Hotel Galomar and my husband went snorkelling here at the underwater nature reserve. Be aware that it is the Atlantic Ocean and the water can be cold at times. The weather was perfect, not too hot about 24C with a cool breeze. There is an activity programme for the hotels ranging from Levada walking to Yoga and water colour painting and also evening entertainment at the bar in the Galomar. We had a lovely relaxing week here again and enjoyed our stay very much.
Pros: The location and room were simply great. It was very quiet and the atmosphere very relaxing.
Cons: I didn't like the Ayurveda food but I managed to have dinner at the sister hotel.

Pros: The views from sea view room, Lee Hamilton restaurant onsite and able to walk out for other bars and restaurants etc, the pool outside and in, the staff very friendly and helpful, room cleaned every day and towels etc changed very regularly
Cons: Photos of hotel from sea obviously old as a lot of sunbathing, areas to sit etc unused and quite worn looking, paintwork in some areas needed attention
Pros: - Not far from the Airport - Very nice view - Big room - Good breakfast
Cons: - The beach in from of the hotel is closed. In general it is not a problem as guests can use another beach next to this one. It is just a pity as this hotel's beach looks nicer in my opinion. - It is hard to find a parking space when you come from the airport. After arrival you can ask for a pass for a special parking for guests nearby. It helped us a lot.
Pros: The breakfast buffet was excellent and well worth the money. It was great to be able to use the facilities at the hotels and the shuttle bus to Funchal.
When you stay at Galo Resort Hotel Galosol in Canico, you'll be on the beach, within a 10-minute drive of Madeira Botanical Garden and Madeira Stadium. Featured amenities include a computer station, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. Planning an event in Canico? This resort has 3229 square feet (300 square meters) of space consisting of a conference center and a meeting room. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The resort features an excellent pool and sunbathing complex down by the ocean cliff. Of course, you can get safely in and out to the ocean from there as well! You can get down there by the elevator!
Cons: During our stay (mid-August), the whole week was quite windy. We travelled all around the island and noticed that there was much less windy at other places at the same time. It seems that the location of the hotel - Caniço - has naturally more wind than other parts of the island.
Pros: Great location, facilities, breakfast and staff.
Cons: Nothing really it is a very pleasant hotel set on many levels.
Pros: The hotel is located at a Garajau Partial Natural Reserve so the ocean is the cleanest. 10-15 minutes for ~25 euros by taxi is the "distance" from the airport. Quite, clean, big and beautiful area near the ocean with plenty of facilities - places for rest and for sport, for taking sunbath and swimming, for eating and walking. Breathtaking views. Friendly and helpful staff. Rescue personal at the beach. Different activities, which are free for the hotel guests. The possibility of diving and snorkeling - there is a diving centre right on the beach, you can rent equipment if it's needed. Special beach zones only for adults. Free beach towels, sun beds and umbrellas. Several restaurants at the territory as well as nearby including fish & seafood restaurants, pizzeria, etc. Not more than 100 metres to a bus stop. If you like a long walks in sports shoes up and down the steep hillsides, then the city center is not far away either)) You should follow a sign "cantrata" - trail for pedestrians. There're the stunning oceans and the city's views from these hillsides.
Cons: Old air conditioner in the room with a terrible smell while working. Absence of fish or seafood an the breakfast and limited menu of stewed vegetables. It would be great if the hotel provided a shuttle to or from the airport.
Pros: The breakfast is very good and the pool is lovely, the location is very nice with beaches and many restaurants within walking distance. I arrive early and they were able to accomodate me into a room right away.
Cons: One thing to know: the airport shuttle needs to be booked ahead and costs 18 euro each way. This was unexected for me. Also, the communication was not what it should be. On my return trip to the airport, I had booked the shuttle (which you cah book to the room and pay for with a credit card), but instead they called me a taxi and I needed to pay with cash, which I didn't have, creating last minute stress of having to change money for the driver in the airport.
Pros: The access to the sea The deckchair next to the see The view from the restaurant
Cons: The hotel is hudge and a lot of distance has to be made between each spot. The snooker can't be used at nigth witch hasen't been indicated when we asked how to use it The diving center where you can pay only by cash with atm very far from the hotel
Pros: Reasonable prices Good staff - especially at night he pool bar and especially Ana (she is an asset to your resort)
Cons: Should be an on site shop in my opinion Bar open after 10pm
Pros: Breakfast was very nice with lots of variety. The sea water pool and the access to the sea itself were absolutely brilliant - great to relax a bit after a long hike. We also enjoyed the lounge bar and restaurant above the pool, the food was nice and views there are magnificent. There is a lot of free parking options and a small supermarket just a few meters from the hotel.
Cons: The bathroom could use a bit of bleach here and there - it was clean, but there were some patches of black mold in the seams of the shower wall. Wifi did get slow during the peak hours (around 6 - 10 PM).
Pros: Probably one of the best holiday resorts I've been to. Beautiful location, excellent service, wonderful clean rooms and any facility available that one could wish for.
Pros: very friendly and good value for money. Would go again
Pros: hotel staff is very competent and very friendly, location for sports activities is great (hiking, mountain biking, gym, diving ...), breakfast is very good
Pros: The room was comfortable with a lovely sea view. The breakfast was really good with lots of different choices on offer.
Pros: The gym/sports facilities are very good. The sauna/spa area is very useful after a day of walking. Swimming in the sea. Breakfast is very good.
Cons: Facilities are rather spread out and involve crossing public areas.
Pros: The variety of activities supplied by the hotel.
Cons: A kitchenette would have been perferred and/or a fridge for our use as opposed to a stocked mini-bar.
Pros: The hotel was well organized and I had the change to relax a lot because of the plenty physical body activities.
Cons: I couldn't find shampoo in the bathroom, there was only one product for body and hair, a four star hotel has to provide nice different products for body and hair.
Pros: sea view, staff service
Cons: very old furniture, ancient leaking shower in the room, tough pancakes, awful coffee and half-done omelette for breakfasts
Pros: Hotel location, breakfast and health center.
Cons: Furniture and plumbing!!! Hotel definitely needs new furniture and renewal of plumbing accessories.
Pros: The room was perfect and the view was very good
Cons: There was a lot of olg germans, no young people at all. I also recomend to make tea/coffee facilities in the room free

Pros: Very professional personnel

Pros: Amazing location
Cons: Grumpy waiter
Pros: Welcome drink. Big spacy room with small equipt kitchen. We left early, so lady brought us a breakfast the evening before. You can order dinner on beautiful terace.
Cons: The rooms are far from the reception (different streets). Very bad view (towards the wall of the room in front). Parking place is somewhere in the street. Far from the sea.
Pros: Good location, nice staff.
Cons: Apartment was further from the reception and main hotel about 200 meters. Breakfast - no variety. Apartment needs renovation- toilet broken, insekts (small ants in the kitchen), the shutters do not close in the bedroom, not all electrical sockets work, and the main important thing- strong chlorine odor, that we could not air. It was probably used for the pull disinfection.
Pros: I loved this place. Amazing view, super helpfull staff and all this positive energy made my trip so much better. Staff onsite helped us with activities, operating buses, renting a car and all the questions we've got. They were always smiling and patient with us. I highly recommend Inn&Art
Located in Canico, Rocamar Lido Resort is by the ocean, within a 10-minute drive of Santa Cruz Beach and Madeira Botanical Garden. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: So close to the sea. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Cons: Noise from building going on around.
Pros: Location and access to other hotels/ facilities. It was beautifully positioned on the rocks.
Cons: It looks like the hotels could use some style upgrades. Also, the food is not great.
Pros: Amazing breakfast, the perfect sea view from the room :) Nice atmosphere and plenty of activities close by
Pros: The amazing view from our room. The small private areas around the property were one could be alone and enjoy the ocean. The area which had all you needed in grocery shops, restaurants, bus to funchal, and pick up points for excursions
Cons: Some ants in the room
Pros: The property has really good location that means from the airport is just 10 min drive and that is €20. The facilities were excellents, the view is fantastic, the staff amazing. I am planning to go back again in two years time because I went myself but in two years I hope that I will have someone with me
Pros: Beautiful sea views. Interesting layout on several levels.
With a stay at Dom Pedro Garajau in Canico, you'll be a 5-minute drive from Madeira Botanical Garden and 7 minutes from Madeira Stadium. Featured amenities include a computer station, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk.
Pros: The staff was helpful, the views amazing, the garden was really neat and cared.
Cons: The bed was not comfortable, the bathroom was very old and very difficult to get out of the tub if you have low mobility. The breakfast was poor in fruits.
Pros: Very nice, comfortable hotel. Good, convinient location.
Cons: Compering to other hotels near by of 4 stars, Dom Pedro Garajau is definatly very high on the rate, after i made a search for a 4 star and the diference was 6euros p/ night diference, Pitty i had already made the reservation and could not cancel, the breakfast very poor theres so much that can be improofed example a budget taken from the gardens and be placed at the breakfast with more variaty it is the main meal to start the day , the staff at the breakfast unfriendly not even a good morning smile that as no cost, the reception staff included no welcoming smile at all, housekeeping ladys very friendly. Pitty the inside pool is not being used, in my opinion a bar service nearby would make the diference would be more atempeting when theres so many bars on the surroundings and the hotel could provide more sales, when we arrived at the room it took aproximatly the first night to get the bed clothing to feel warm room very cold there was a heating system but must say until it start to work the nights were sleeples. The fotos on publication could be as reality but needs more then many touches. Unfortunatly will not choose this option for any of our coming holidays, but we truly hope that this hotel with so much pontential can be improofed.
Cons: no wifi in the room
Cons: No wi-fi in the rooms, just in the lobby and the breakfast is so really simple and repetative
Pros: Otherwise, we were happy with our choice of hotel. Nice swimming pools, nice location, comfy beds. Good value for money. You don't need much more.
Cons: They offer some variety of choices at breakfast, which was pretty sufficient, but a few previous guests commented on the eggs... I have to agree. Such a simple, but good dish - here it was not, unfortunately.
When you stay at Village Cabo Girao in Camara de Lobos, you'll be in the mountains, within a 15-minute drive of Lido and CR7 Museum. Featured amenities include multilingual staff, laundry facilities, and a library. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The facilities were very good and every where was very clean and tidy. The food at breakfast was good and the one meal we had in the restaurant in the evening was good. We also enjopyd the bbq night. I am not sure about the singer though !!
Cons: The one thing that really annoyed us was the fact that at breakfast there was a machine which dispensed coffee that was INSTANT COFFEE !!! I am sorry to say that is totally unacceptable in this day and age. If you wanted `proper` coffee you had to pay extra . I think that is a mistake and very short sighted .
Pros: Location is great, 5 min uphill to the view point. However, you need to either use the hotel's transport or have your own car to get to Funchal or Camara de Lobos. It's a quiet place with a very helpful team
Cons: Local restaurant rather on a more expensive side, compared to restaurants in Camara - or some you could find in Funchal. Food is good though. Be prepared for some chilly moments anytime - you can find yourself in clouds several times during the day.
Pros: It’s a wonderful place, location excellent.
Cons: Having to leave
Pros: The apartment was huge, staff friendly and welcoming across all areas, facilities were perfect for us and the kids. Overall a beautiful place.
Cons: The beds were a little soft resulting in a bit of backache by the end of the stay but appreciate that is a preference thing. I am an out for dinner kind of person, none of the local restaurants appealed. A shuttle into funchal ar night would have been great as my confidence driving in the dark was low.
Pros: Excellent staff, beautiful view, nice big apartment, nice view, nice tennis courts and charming swimming pool
Cons: Apartment needs refurbishment, the location is on a hill, which gives a much higher chance of clouded weather (actually, a couple of times we were in the clouds...) and the wifi is very poor. The bar has a limited offer of food and the Spa is very small.
Pros: Idyllic place for a quite holiday with nearby restaurants
Pros: The location was fantastic, located right next to the skywalk. The roads were steep, but the views were good.
Pros: The view. Friendly reception.
Cons: The road there.
Pros: The perfect place for families, couples, groups. Perfect for a relaxed holidays with great amenities and an amazing view.
Located in Camara de Lobos, Hotel Quinta da Serra is within a 15-minute drive of Cabo Girao and Formosa Beach. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, a business center, and express check-in. Event facilities at this hotel consist of conference space and a meeting room. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The best part of the hotel is its garden, which is totally gorgeous. I have never seen garden like this. Other than that the only good things in this hotel are pool and food.
Cons: The staff is bad, some of the staff is super rude. They try to avoid contact with customer at any costs. They were always preparing some tables during breakfast. The rest of the staff is okay, but still I can't imagine that anyone from the staff would be hired in any ordinary 5 star hotel chain. The management of the hotel is bad too because the staff is not educated. They pour red wine into white wine glasses, the pour water in red wine glasses, candles on the tables look like from cemetery and so on. This hotel is definitely not a 5 star hotel it is 4 star hotel at best but the service makes it 3 star hotel (I have definitely been in 3 star hotels with better service than this 5 star hotel). This hotel could be one of the best on Madeira thanks to its location, concept, garden and history but the staff ruins it.
Pros: Amazing breakfast and dinner Wonderful swimming pool Pretty room Very pretty building Nice staff
Cons: Nothing :)
Pros: Lovely place in the mountains. Large bed and clean room. Breakfast was excellent, a lot of fresh and good food with a big choice.
Cons: Because of a wedding, the access to the pool was conditioned. We check-in at 15.15, the swimming pool closed at 16.00 (instead of 21.00, as they close the pool normally). Unfortunately, this information wasn't provided when I book the room. It has greatly affected my stay here and the staff didn't offer anything to compensate this problem.
Pros: An exceptionally beautiful, relaxing and beautiful hotel. The rooms are comfortable but could be a bit larger as well as the balconies. But the surrounding gardens, the pool and the magnificent trees are more than a compensation. The breakfast was a very positive surprise and both restaurants serve excellent organic food. Of course the staff was friendly andhelpful. One of my best hotel experiences, and I am traveling quite a lot.
Pros: Very attentive staff - clean, organised, calm, professional. A real gem hidden up high on the mountain - 5 mins from Boca de Corrida for great views or hiking. Public bus stops by hotel but rental car very much recommended!
Pros: Superb breakfast and beautiful gardens.
Pros: Breakfast, pool, sauna, halfboard, tennis court, massage and the overall relaxing atmosphere were amazing - will come back!
Cons: It'd be great if the pool staff would come every once in a while to check (without calling) if we'd like any (more) drink/food, but this is such a minor detail that it didn't make our stay any less enjoyable, but would have simply added to the relaxation :)
Pros: Great breakfast, very quiet surrounding. Large rooms. Large pool, not crowded at all. Although the hotel is uphills even the driving is not that bad after some practice.

Featured amenities include limo/town car service, a computer station, and dry cleaning/laundry services. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Excellent breakfasts, For evening meals, the service and ambience for both Bacchus and Adiga was good but the food for the buffet at Bacchus was ordinary and not very warm, and the price was high. The food at Adiga was very poor, sometimes almost uneatable
Cons: Quality of evening meals (as above); It would be helpful if the courtesy bus could drop residents in the centre of Funchal and not at Quinta Sai Tiago.
Pros: Wonderful position and property
Cons: Hotel starting to need makeover
Pros: The breakfast was outstanding! Very good food and juice!
Cons: I could hear the man ( or woman?) in the next room snoring the walls were thinner than I would like.. or maybe a very loud snorer and it wasn’t the hotels fault
