Stayed for one week at the Girasol from 10th March 2012. Was impressed with the central courtyard/pool area which is a beautiful place to relax. Staff are constantly tending the gardens around the pool. Hotel IS as the pictures portray it. Staff are friendly and attentive. Breakfast buffet OK - choice of indian food or english breakfast. Chef on hand cooking fresh eggs to order. Our room was on the top floor.
Probably cheaper to go out to eat, rather than eat at the hotel. There are lots of nice restaurants to choose from. Would recommend Floyds and Fisherman's cove in particular. Top Nosh also good (don't be put off by the exterior - once you get into the courtyard, it's very nice). Really enjoyed the stay.
If you go on the Anjuna market trip, be prepared for the hard sell (woman grabbed me and dragged me to her stall on arrival - I had to pull my wrist away from her with force!), and don't let anyone clean your ears out (it's a scam!). Most of the stuff on sale at Anjuna is cheap tat - we bought better stuff in Candolim. Anjuna beach is nice, but wouldn't bother going to the market again.
