"Idyllic retreat by the sea "
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 was there but when it was there's a nice pool. Would definitely recommend for retreat and if you like walking it's ideal. Hotel do free shuttle to Funchal and also pick up from airport.
"Wow, wow, wow..."
... 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 fully takes advantage of this with many spaces to enjoy the surroundings; whether that be in the glass breakfast/dining room, the bar, terrace, pool, snack bar, spa, day beds... (I could go on and on). We received a free upgrade to a sea view room which really made our stay even more special. Listening to the waves as you fall to sleep and waking to the view of blue sky and sea was out of this world! I would highly recommend paying extra for the sea view rooms, WHEN we go back we certainly will! The rooms were very simple in design but beautiful. Lovely to have a small but convenient fridge. Bed wasn't a double - it was huge! Lovely mattress and linen. Cleaned every day. Spacious and private balcony. Again, sea view stole the show as far as the room was concerned. Pool area was lovely, plenty of sun loungers or daybeds if you prefer. Pool was very cold but a welcome break from the heat, with views to die for out to sea. We used the snack bar several times which had reasonable cheap eats for snacking on. We also visited the spa several times for massages which were very reasobaqle. There is an indoor heated pool and jacuzzi, both of which were perfect for relaxing. Breakfast was of an exceptional quality with hot food, fruits, yogurts, cereals, breads, cakes... (again I could go on and on). A great quality of the hotel is its dining room with glass wall for uninterrupted views across town to the sea. Also worth noting that every single member of staff was friendly and attentive, lovely service. Even though the hotel was fully booked for the entirety of our stay you would never know it as there is a deceiving amount of space. There were always tables available at breakfast (we always sat right next to the window), there were always sun loungers available, tables for dinner, plenty of space at the bar/terrace. This was such a wonderful quality to have in a hotel, as so often hotels can feel busy and crowded. Not so at the Estalagem, it was such a relaxing and peaceful stay - even at maximum capacity. Other points to note include the free airport shuttle - applicable to guests who stay over 5 nights and the free daily shuttle in to Funchal.
Stayed here for two nights , wish we could have stayed longer but it was fully booked. I do understand that. For the money you spend you got great value. The rooms are nice and clean and we got a balcony with seaview , what more can you ask for ' Breakfast is a treat , fresh fruit and yoghurt. In the morning there are option going on Levada Tours. Make sure to sign up in advance or it will be full. We did a walking tour just the two of us uphill the nearby Levada. Three hours and it was great. They also provide bikes. So , If you want to stay in a small Village and just stress down and do some fun activities in the daytime - this is the perfect spot. I Love to come back any day.
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 staff were very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast buffet in the restaurant was really good with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. We would love to come back.
"Nice design hotel in a stunning setting"
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 ocean view), steam sauna and heated indoor pool to relax the muscle after hours walking in the levadas. The hotel offers complimentary shuttle service if you want to get to some of the levadas. The levadas Nova and do Moinho are located not far from the hotel and are nice ones to walk. The breakfast was good with a huge selection of fruits and breads. Warm options were also offered and changed daily. The restaurant offers fabulous view of the ocean and sunset. We opted to have our 3 dinners there given the quality of the food and the fair prices. The room was well appointed and I loved the simple and white decor. The bed was comfy and I enjoyed sleeping with the sound of the waves hitting the cliffs down below. There is no better place in Ponta do Sol. I just wished I could have stayed at least an extra night but they were already quite booked when I made the reservations 6 months in advance!
