“Terrific value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

We had an all inclusive holiday at the beginning of March. The room was large, spotlessly clean, on 10th floor with morning sunshine and a great view across Funchal and the harbour. It was very quiet (as requested). The kitchenette was fine to make tea and coffee. Soap was provided in the somewhat tired bathroom, but no shampoo which is odd for a hotel.The food was mostly very good (good enough that we ate in each evening), all the service was excellent, and the all-inclusive drinks were fine. The communal lounge area was very spacious. It was about half an hour's easy walk to the centre of Funchal- previous comments were of the steep walk home, but as over 60s we did not find it hard at all. There was an excellent shuttle bus to the town centre, only minus point was it did not run at the week end. The information on the web site about where we could eat on the all- inclusive was confusing. The swimming pool was lovely if rather bracing!
The entertainment that we went to in the evening was fabulous- local folk dancing & singing.
We would certainly go there again. The whole deal was terrific value.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room with a view

Hotel part of a complex of 3 hotels: the positive points: 3 swimming pools available, bar open till late and mostly all rooms with balcony. Negative points: location (a little bit outside the Marina and steepy road to go back to the hotel by foot) and clients mostly over 65 old (well I was there end of September, so maybe that's why...?)

We have just returned from a stay at the Mimosa and enjoyed our time there. As other reviews have pointed out the food does leave something to be desired (from my wife's point of view, and that of at least one other guest, that something was potatoes!) but it is broadly OK and the service is very friendly. Our room was very clean, high up with great views and there was easy access to all he hotel facilities. The entertainment was mostly not our cup of tea (with the wonderful exception of the brilliant folk/dance group - if anyone can tell me who they were that would be appreciated) and one night was in the 'sister' hotel lower down the hill in a room resembling an atmospherically challenged church hall attended by a handful of very bored guests and two couples willing to dance to appalling music. Despite reservations about the "entertainment" (again, with the noted exception of the 'Folclore' group) this was a very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

Although the hotel gets some bad reviews we have used it many times and feel it is very good value for money. We chose the hotel because we like the location with its views towards Funchal, the friendly and helpful staff and the clean and comfortable rooms. We stay in the 3 star apartments on a bed and breakfast basis.

The apartment has twin beds, table and two chairs also a comfortable chair. There is a balcony with table and chairs and either faces Funchal with outstanding views, or the sunny side faces the pool. The kitchenette is basically equipped with two rings, a fridge, and sink. There is NO microwave, electric kettle or toaster which would be useful. There is enough cutlery and crockery for two and 2 saucepans and a frying pan. You can only make a limited meal but there are plenty of restaurants nearby where you can buy a meal for about £15. The local supermarkets are well stocked and they sell hot take-away food at reasonable prices. The hotel restaurant is good for evening meals and you can buy 5 meals at 15 euros each and get 7 and use the tickets whenever you like. The breakfasts are mainly continental with a good choice of breads, fruits, yoghurts etc. The hot breakfast is limited to one or two items and the chef's choice leaves a lot to be desired.

The hotel courtesy bus operates week days only and is useful as the hotel is situated up a steep hill and it takes you up to the top and saves you walking up. Not for the unfit.

We would use the hotel again but only on a bed and breakfast tariff.

Room Tip: Views towards Funchal High Floor Sunny side pool view

After having read some of the dreadful reviews after booking this hotel I must write to say what a great hotel this is. We(four of us) have just returned from a week's holiday. The food was superb, the staff extremely friendly and helpful, the bedrooms and other areas very clean. We only stay in three star hotels and this by far is the best one ever. The food was different every night and the breakfasts we could not fault. Being on all inclusive we made lovely sandwiches to take out for lunch as we preferred to do this rather than have the packed lunches, and this was perfectly ok with the staff. The manager of the restaurant was very attentive all the time.

The courtesy bus was very useful although at the weekend it doesn't run, but the walk into Funchal is lovely and not a problem for walkers.

We shall certainly go back to Madeira and again stay at the Dorisol Mimosa.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor by the road overlooking the pool and sea and had the sun o our balcony mid...
