To visit again only after Covid
This is a lovely hotel with stunning views. Reception and house keeping staff are very friendly and efficient Its a shame it is not walking distance from Funchal. One of the best features is the stunning sea view saunas but these are effectively out of bounds with covid with a failed booking system that they don't tell you about in advance unless you read portuguese! Breakfast has a stunning ocean backdrop and is normally ok, but has sadly always fallen short here, as does the food in general which you would expect to match the level of the hotel. Staff are like rabbits caught in car headlights and their insistance at a member of staff walking with you to serve you from the buffet a complete failure. Sadly they seem to have an attitude problem as well which has always been the case in Atlantis restaurant but is now considerably worse. A great shame and a serious let down for what is a magnificent property. Visit Hotel Porto Mare to see how breakfast can be done in covid very efficiently and safer. Sadly Galomar really have failed here. Despite what appears as covid panic they fail to monitor at all if people are sanitising their hands. Its very simple let it run as it did before and have one person ensuring hands are sanitised, or move to table service. It is a shame they have made the wrong decisions on how to deal with covid. This is one of my favourite places to stay on the island and I will be back when it hopefully returns to the old standards after covid.
