Nice hotel, lovely views

The hotel has everything that you need and is within walking distance of local restaurants as well as Canico city centre. Staff at the hotel were friendly and welcoming, especially the staff at the morning breakfast buffet who made every effort to try and accommodate our dietary needs. Madeira is a beautiful island with beautiful people, we would love to return again and stay at the Galo Resort.

Sehr sauberes Hotel, nicht nur im Zimmer sondern allgemein. Sehr ökologisch und grün, sogaer der Mülleimer im Zimmer bot Recyclingmöglichkeiten. Die zugehörigen Restaurants sind super, das Frühstücksbuffet gut (nicht wirklich abwechslungsreich aber sehr fein) und das Personal im Hotel und den Restaurants sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend

Gutes Hotel mit Einschränkungen

Schöne Aussicht, schöner Speisesaal. Das Hotel liegt direkt an Grossbaustelle welche sicher bis im 2019 besteht! Baulärm von 8-20 Uhr! Direkter Zugang zum Meer deshalb nicht möglich. Tolles Frühstücksbuffet, freundliches gut geschultes Personal.

Zimmer mit Meerblick und Baulärm

Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit Meerblick im Nebengebäude bei der Baustelle der neuen Hotelanlage. Aufgrund des Baulärms von morgens 8 Uhr bis abends um ca. 8 Uhr (samstags etwas weniger lang), konnten wir unseren Aufenthalt nicht rundum geniessen. Wir wurden vor unserem Aufenthalt leider nicht darüber informiert, dass zurzeit in unmittelbarer Nähe ein neues Hotel gebaut wird. Auch bei unserer Anreise hielt es das Empfangsteam nicht für notwendig, uns darauf hinzuweisen. Das Galo Resort Hotel Galosol verfügt über eine gepflegte, grosszügige Anlage mit ausgezeichnetem Frühstücksbuffet.
