The hotel sits on the side of a cliff overlooking the sea and there's several places to sit and relax. Staff were very friendly and generally helpful albeit it's quite laid back (everywhere) so don't expect speedy service but then you're on holiday so speed is not required. I was quite happy to relax. Weather was not great whilst I...

... to everything about this place! The most stand out point about the hotel has to be its location, set at the top of a cliff overlooking valleys covered in banana trees to one side, the town of Ponta do Sol and the sea to the other. In every single direction you look there is a breathtaking view. The hotel...

We stayed at this very nice hotel in April 2017. The location is just great, and the services of the hotel are excellent. We were picked up at the airport by the hotel at no extra cost. The hotel arranged daily transport to and from Funchal and to various levadas for trekking tours - also at no extra cost. The...

We started our 10-day trip to Madeira with 3 nights in Ponta do Sol. What a great place this is. Extra bonus is to have this hotel overlooking the ocean and the lovely old town. The infinity pool is gorgeous and sitting around it offers infinity views towards the ocean. There is a wellness area with a dry sauna (with...

Pleasantly surprised when we arrived given the setting and numerous facilities on offer. The staff is very attentive and responsive and extremely knowledgable. The breakfast is excellent and rooms quality and cleanliness very good. The location is great...

As many people have pointed out before me, the location of the hotel is pretty unique. The hotel consists of different levels, with on the lowest level a parking spot (which is always full as other people have pointed out, but then you just park along the street), at the second level the reception and the restaurant, and at the...

My teenage daughter and I spent the first week of January 17 here. First of all the location is absolutely spectacular. There is no better way to feel the sheer power and beauty of the nature, the rolling sea down the cliffs, the wind and the beauty of the vegetation. Staying in room # 504, which is on the top...

This is a superb hotel, with fantastic facilities in a stunning location. We had such a relaxing week amusing ourselves at the spa and the pool. We had the option of being more active with free transport laid on to visit Funchal and inland levada walks. However the hotel facilities and the surrounding town kept us amused. It was the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The best way to define the concept that lies behind the Estalagem da Ponta do Sol is the idea of an escape hotel. It is set on the top of a cliff - a more spectacular location is difficult to imagine. The hotel is a result of the renovation of an old "quinta", and the goal was simple: to integrate the original buildings in a distinct, contemporary style. The architecture enhances the beauty of an already beautiful place and the atmosphere is simple and relaxed, yet sophisticated. ... more   less
