Worth a read!
Check in was prompt. 2 rooms given. One had no patio light, stained carpets, tv remote that didn't work and a table with one chair (for a double room). The other had a lock that wouldn't lock, and snapped the key. After reporting this they gave us another key and said be careful didn't bother with the lock repair. The corridor between the rooms, 101 and 102, had a constant smell of canabis which also, made both rooms smell. (Not good for kids). The pool area could do with a little upkeep work but generally was good. Accept for the cockroaches. ( the maintenance man killed one in front of me and kicked his remains into one of the drains). The breakfast was ok. Hotdogs, fried and scrambled eggs, beans. (Hot option) cold meats, fruit, yogurt, cheese, cereal and salad. (Cold option) sounds ok right? Wrong! Nothing at fault with the food. Just the restaurant area. We had cockroaches scurrying about our feet, climbing up under tables, even upside down on one of the chairs. (Trying to wriggle back over). I would only recommend you stay here if you only want to use it as a base to crash and sleep. It is reasonably well located and is about 10-15 minutes walk from Funchal itself. Hope this helps some of you decide!

Wonderfull Gorgullo
We stayed here 5 years ago to watch the New Year Fireworks. Awesome view from East-Side Room on floor 8. Great for Sunrise, Floor 9 has better view. Rooms are good enough for the Oldest Hotel in the Lido area. Beds and Bath are realy clean. Housekeeping staff `will change sheets daily if requested. All in all, Location 5* Price 5* Staff 5* Only negative is that there is NO bar/lounge during the day.

Very good value for money if you like a clean room
I use the Gorgulho from time to time, when I need to stay overnight in Funchal. This time I stayed for a week as it was convenient to where my family were staying. The hotel doesn't look appealing from the outside as it is tired and old, but the staff are really friendly, rooms are clean and comfortable and cheap! I find the location excellent as it's in the heart of the Lido and ideal for somewhere to lay your head whilst doing other things during the day. The breakfast is adequate for the money, and as a room for a night or two, I can't complain. I think that the Gorgulho is a brilliant place for a cheap week's holiday if you are not worried about the lack of luxury and plan on spending your time sightseeing. For me, its the perfect stop gap for a night in the city and the week I spent there made it a home for that short time.
