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...

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...

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...

We were delighted to discover Estalagem Punta do Sol: amazing architecture blending tradition and modern, in a unique location. The views for the room, the swimming pool, the bar, the restaurant were stunning over the ocean, the village, the banana plantations. The atmosphere was both chilled and active. All the staff was very friendly, even the cat :) Food was...

This is a special place high atop a hill over looking a quaint Madeira village. The food is excellent leans toward haute and the hotel is charming in a very modern sort of way. Staff is friendly and the guests tend to be European rather than American. The pool area is wonderful and each weekend would have a guest DJ...

After a few nights at The Vine in Funchal our stay in Madeira finished with five wonderful nights at the Estalagem Ponta do Sol. It's super relaxing, great friendly service and awesome location made it truly special. We were lazy so went half board and enjoyed every meal and the wine list of great Portuguese wines. We recommend trying the...

We have just left this wonderful hotel after a magnificent week. We have visited Madeira 5 times now and have stayed in Ponta do Sol for the 4th time as it is the sunniest beautiful location. This was our first time stating at Estalagem and we will definitely return. We stayed in room 405 and the view and room was...

Lovely hotel in a fab laid back village on the sunniest spot on Madeira. 2 weeks in July went in no time, fantastic weather helped us to really enjoy the bars on the beach nearby and in Ponta do Sol itself. Regular live music events ranged from cheesy to seriously far out which just added to the fun. Only slight...

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
