Overview

Galosol was the first active hotel in Madeira offering plenty of fitness facilities ideal for those looking to keep active whilst on holiday. It’s part of Galo Resorts who also own Galomar (the adults-only hotel next door) and Alpino Atlantico (the Ayurveda retreat down the road) and all three share their facilities. But it’s not all about fitness here, you can also relax in the Ashoka Spa with the range of holistic spa treatments as well as make the most of the water front location, outdoor swimming as well as natural lido and diving centre.

When to go

Madeira is full of microclimates but stays warm almost all year round. Temperatures in winter are 18 – 22 degrees and in summer 24 – 26 degrees.
