We found that staff were very friendly & helpful.....the hotel felt personal & almost homely ....unlike larger complexes. If you are wanting extensive facilities / restaurants .....this hotel on many levels is not for you. Peace & atmosphere was great even though the hotel was full.....many opportunities to relax & chat....many great view points to endlessly stare great free walks...

This hotel was almost frustrating to stay at, because it SO nearly crosses the line from 'good' to 'very good', but just fails to get there. There's no denying the location is stunning - the clifftop views are perfect, and you could never get bored of watching the changing sea. The rooms are a decent size, and the beds comfortable...

Upon approach, one faces a large mountain of solid rock. High up above, perched on the top is the Estalagem da Ponta do Sol. Walking through to an elevator, guests are whisked up to the Reception area. The elevator door opens and one is greeted with a small catwalk. It teases you with glimpses of a view of what is...

The one plus point straight off is obviously the location, high atop a cliff right on the Atlantic Ocean. Gorgeous views of the sea and banana plantations. All accessed from the street via 3 different concrete lifts. The negatives are almost too numerous to mention: the rooms are in a bad state of repair (broken tap, blocked sink, maid's hairs...

The Estalagem has been build on a unique spot, high over the ocean. The view from the pool is breathtaking. The hotel is furnished very tastefully. Especially intriguing is the calm, yet modern and light athmosphere. There are spa offers, a great hot tub and you can book free rides to starting spots for day hikes. The restaurant is very...

It's not a bad hotel, but it's a really BAD one. I'm yet to see another hotel where division between image and actuality is so far apart. The hotel is perched on top of a cliff and the view is nice. That's where the good things end... First, the design. The building a is truly spectacular example of BDSM school...

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
