Transfers from the airport very good. Peaceful environment, very good facilities and gorgeous healthy food. The yoga teacher - she was lovely and also the restaurant and cleaning staff were lovely. Reception staff unfortunately not so good. It would only take a little more effort from the hotel reception staff to have made our stay great. Information from the hotel reception was poor. They did not seem to know about our package and did not pass on key, essential information to us - in fact, on one occasion, the wrong information, which led us to the wrong hotel at the wrong time. The hotel was in a more residential area than we thought it would be – with very few local shops/restaurants. Hotel very clean and modern, rooms were lovely (although the view of the Cliff room we had paid for was partly blocked by the lift construction). Overall, we enjoyed the holiday, it was enjoyable!

The preparation was great, great that you thought about which location was right for us, and arranged the treatments. In retrospect, we did not plan it 100% right, we would have liked to have another day where we could do a hike, and that was just not possible because of all those wonderful treatments ... The hotel looked ideed super new & clean. No surprise that there was German management behind it. The terraces with views are award-winning! I would have liked it if they could have helped us more with sports activities. For this they referred us to the other hotels. To make the wellness even better, I would have liked a swimming facility where you don't have to get dressed first and have to walk a long way. And an option to eat something in your bathrobe. We did really miss those big healthy salads, the restaurant didn't have those either Lying in the sun in January and then plunging into the sea by stairs, that alone was a reason for me to go to Galomar!

We love this

  • Adults only!
  • Modern style, all fresh, bright and clean.
  • Huge amount of activities available for the active minded guests, but at the same time plenty of space and time for relaxation with a stunning ocean view!

This not so much...

  • The dinner buffet of the half board restaurant does get some mixed reviews.
  • THIS HOTEL FILLS UP VERY QUICKLY, SO WE RECOMMEND BOOKING AT LEAST TWO MONTHS IN ADVANCE!

Our tips

  • Madeira Hiking with Christa, enjoy a day with a group hike and guide that knows the real Madeira and will show you it´s real beauty and nature.
  • You should not miss a visit to colourful Funchal with its pitoresque streets and flowers. A must when you visit Funchal is the Monte Cable Car - this is an old tradition - a little expensive now but worth the fun of the ride. A wonderfully sedate way to travel from Funchal Bay up towards Monte and the botanical gardens. Fantastic views above the rooftops of Funchal - get your camera ready!
  • Take a fabulous boat trip where you can enjoy the unforgettable experience of encountering schools of dolphins or even whales.
