Have booked and stayed at this hotel via Mercury for many years which is the highest recommendation we could make. Returning here is like visiting friends and relations rather than a hotel.
With first time guests included in that family straight away
So pleased to be given our usual room as requested.
Hotel location is ideal for our requirement of bed and breakfast only and have stayed in the same suite for the last 4 years as requested. Disappointed that the previous monthly offers during January were unavailable this year as were some other of the usual guests.
Excellent family owned and very friendly hotel.
Disappointed that it is no longer listed in the main section of your recent brochures.
It has been recently refurbishment which only adds to its many attractions
We feel we can trust Mercury Holidays and have had 3 perfect holidays to date.Your company appears to have a good relationship with hotels in that all the accommodation myself and my husband have had has been excellent. Also the transfers are very good and special requests, for example for a high up room and sea view have been granted.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
We were introduced to Mercury Holidays and we would like to say how much we enjoyed our holiday to Madeira, thank you!
This hotel was fan-dabby-dozy!
The hotel was above the average expected for this price range. Staff were helpful and courteous. Food was good but choice some nights was limited.
Girassol is a family owned and run mainly suite based hotel which we have been using via Mercury for the last few years.
The ambience and service are traditional and set firmly in friendly good service.
We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would be happier to see Mercury give it a little more prominence in brochures etc
