"Nice stay with super sea views"
We stayed at Estalagem Ponta do Sol for a week in March. We had a room overlooking the garden with breakfast included. 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 however the hotel is in a small village where nothing happens and beach is not sandy. You will need a car to explore the island or use the daily free shuttle to Funchal.
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 third and fourth level the guest rooms. So be prepared to take some elevators and some stairs. We had booked a room with sea view, which I can really recommend. The infinity pool and the wellness center make the picture complete. Choice at breakfast and quality of the food is really good. Only downside is that acoustic isolation in the room is poor : we literally could hear every step our upper neighbours made in their room. So that could be much better.
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 floor of the building just at the cliffs edge, you have a great view over the coastline and the sunrise. Nothing better to sit on the balcony doing nothing, just enjoy. The sunset you can see from the terrace of the main villa, overlooking the small village of Ponta do Sol. The architect combined the two old buildings in a very sensitive way with the new additional buildings. The rooms are very airy and spacious and with classic modern furnitures equipped, just the right way to focus on Madeira's beauty. Of course there are signs of use, read in other reviews, but good quality materials tolerate some patina, in those times we don't allow anything to age, not even ourselves... The garden and the pool area are well tended, the public areas, bar and library, are nice and cozy. The breakfast is in our opinion very good, the choice changes every day, and you have a choice of 6 cooked items, a large choice of self made pastries, charcuterie and cheese and a lot of fresh fruits. The coffee coming from a capsule machine is not really a disadvantage, so you can choose your size and it is always hot. For dinner you have a classics card and a daily specials with starter and main. The food is not outstanding but solid with a lack of seasoning, but salt and pepper are on the table. We liked the very nice staff in the restaurant, who always tried to help you with your needs, so over all a nice experience. In an other review there was a complain about the small entrance door, but te staff is pleased to open the other wing for you, so even with the biggest suitcase you will have an easy access the hotel lobby. The parking area is really a bit small and sometimes you have to park somewhere else, but there is still the opportunity to let your car keys at the reception. The location is really convenient to explore the island, nothing is far away by car, and also for hikers a good place to stay. A perfect place. My only wish to the management; it would be very nice to have a conditioner in the bathroom!
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 perfect antidote to the pre-Christmas mania at home.
"perfect winter holidays"
Perfect staff. When people work with passion all is perfect. We stayed one week, and its perfect place to relax, have full of silence, full of joy and sun holidays. Only thing - smoking, that unfortunately is allowed next to swimming pool. Hope next time wont be allowed any more. Food - we re vegan, a lot of options, fruits and vegetables plus - surprise seitan and pasta. A lot of cats that I loved and great yoga classes (with Isa, booked thanks to hotel). Perfect place to read, swim, travel, drink local vine and just relax. Madeira is just perfect place to relax, walk a lot (really a lot), and feel free. One of my favourite design hotel.
