Dorisol Florasol Funchal Reviews
Florasol Hotel Funchal Madeira Portugal. Jun 22, 2008
The Florasol Hotel is part of the group Dorisol.
Situated about appr.10 minutes (by bus), close to the hotel are bus stops (n.22.214.171.124), appr.30 minutes (walking) from the centre of Funchal and close to The Lido Sol(300 m. walk) and part of the hotel is directly at the main and busy street Estrada Monumental. We had a room directly at the main street, yes it's loud but personally I enjoyed it coz the big balcony had a nice view (partly on the ocean) and always something to watch on the street:). Nothing for light sleepers but for me it was fine. The room was generous with small a kitchen block and a microwave, a nice bathroom with good facilities.
Breakfast was good, divers sorts of bread, fruits, etc, + always eggs boiled or scrambled:) and the main thing: coffee was very good!
Swimming pool and sunbathing-area were good! Towels also for free.
Supermarket, restaurants, post office, rent a car, all within 3 minutes.
Minus (if one wants to be picky)
-Elevator, small and very slow!
-Restaurant Tropical too expensive!
-Personal, manly personal at reception very kind and
helpful the most female personal arrogant, always busy
(With what??) and uninterested.
Female personal in breakfast room nice but got confused
every time their silly female boss, showed up, haha she
was more a burden then help!
Cleaning personal, inaccurate and not alert, must say
that they were very polite and helpful but I think one
doesn't have to ask for the things that are needed:)
-No free/pick up transport from and to the airport.
-To little information flyers at reception desk.
Tips, Bus: get yourself a 7 days pass at the bus kiosk in town, 17 Euros unlimited use and valid for the whole city of Funchal.
Transport from airport, if you fly with TAP or Star Alliance, save your seat coupon, free ride with aero bus to your hotel. Aero bus to the airport 5 Euros.
All in all I would say I was pretty satisfied and happy in Florasol!
