    Great Hotel near Funchal
    We stayed at the Galo for two nights before heading north on the island of Madeira. We had a very nice room with a balcony and partial sea view. The grounds were very nice. The breakfast buffet was good and the pool area was very inviting area to sit for meals. This hotel is close to Funchal without actually being in the city, so the area was a bit less crowded. Very nice area.

    Beautiful area just above the sea. Great walking places along the ocean. Great choices for breakfast. Great restaurants next to and near the hotel. Local bus right at your doorstep. The rooms are great. Wifi is blazing fast. Great staff. Well maintained facilities. Good showers. Very comfortable rooms. I would definitely stay here again.

    Very Good8.0
    Nice view, good service. food soso , small pools
    Upon arriving they told us they overbooked but they will take us to the other hotel across the street (which turns out to be down the slope), we can still use all facilities but we really couldn't be bothered to walk so we didn't get to use the fitness center. The other hotel is spacious and closer to the sea which is good. Tv is smaller than my desktop monitor but good for relaxing. In generally we are happy but I am not liking the way they overbook as the original hotel seems the best established and better rooms. It is a big complex like a maze connecting 3-4 hotels, many small pool here and there. Main pool is smaller than pictures and irregular shape. Indoor one in my hotel is either too shallow or too deep for us moderate swimmers. Try Atlantis hotel which is good and avoid the bar above Atlantis for food, the wrap they gave me is disgusting, not properly wrapped (all spread out when you pick it up with long holes on it), sandwich for my partner was a wrongly order and they scrap the wrong ingredients off and put some other ingredients back on. Stick with the standard drinks then you can enjoy the nice view. The neighborhood only got few restaurants but if you are staying for a few days then it's not a problem.

    Maderia in January
    Lovely hotel, nice sea views and nicely decorated room. Food was good for breakfast & I'm a fussy eater. Nice helpful staff. Local bus goes to Funchal daily and few minutes walk to bus stop. Weather was nice and comfortable for January. Would go again to this hotel.
