We loved this hotel. We had three rooms for the week and we loved it. Breakfast was great each and every morning. We toured all of the island from this location and didn't miss being in a big city at all. Wonderful location, great prices, great value!

Stayed at this hotel second week of June. The location is perfect – all the rooms have sea view, the beach is just across the road (though the road is very quiet and not busy at all). The only disturbing thing is seagulls – they’re very active at night and make some noise  We liked eco design of the...

We had a fantastic time staying here the first week of June 2013. Contrary to popular belief you do not need to hire a car. The hotel will collect you and return you to the airoptt (if staying for a week) and provide more transfers on everyday of the week either into Funchal, to the start and finish of Levada...

This place was great. Great service, great breakfast and very nice ambient. The trick is that staying at this hotel you can also use the facilities of a hotel up on the cliff which is run by the same company. Up the hill there's a fitness, pool, bar, restaurant. There's also a restaurant at this hotel but we never ate...

This was my 4rth trip to Madeira and to Ponta do Sol, where I stayed at this great hotel (because the main hotel, Estalagem da Ponta do Sol, was fully booked). It is really nice, great design, big rooms all facing the ocean. Very good bedsheets, safe, flat screen TV, free wifi in the rooms. Breakfast is very good, food...

We were delighted by the personnel, wonderful people, and although we had problems with the touroperators from the continent, they helped us a lot! We wanted a quiet, nice, romantic place for our honeymoon, and that's what we got! The food of the restaurant was splendid, the bathroom very comfy, the balconies(all with sea view) so retro-romantic! It's best for...

The location is very nice, and so was the room. Unfortunately, the staff were extremely unfriendly and unhelpful. The same staff work the restaurant and reception, and they were unwilling servers and often unavailable and unhelpful at the front desk. We were very reluctant to ask for any information. I would not stay here again. On the second night there,...

I stayed in this hotel in July and I can only say: "Perfect". Rooms are very stylish and clean, food is delicious and personnel is friendly. I would recommend it for your summer vacations - maybe is not appropriate for families with small kids, because in the evening music from beach bars can be loud.

We stayed in DaVila for a week in August. Unfortunately we weren't able to stay the whole two weeks of our vacation since it was already booked (we tried to reserve 3-4 weeks in advance). So i guess it's not the hidden gem any longer and if you want to stay there make sure to reserve well in advance. As...
