Very nice hotel on a cliff overlooking the small town. The free airport shuttle and the free shuttle to Funchal worked well so you don’t need a rental car. Arrival is a bit strange: they drop you off at an elevator! Staff was very nice and helpful. It was a pity that they were only doing one levada walk on...

This was an absolutely stunning hotel. Cut into the rock face, you have to take a lift up from the road to get into it. You then cross a James Bond like bridge before entering the airy reception area. They have one of the best breakfasts you could wish for. All sorts of breads, rolls, croissants, pain au chocolat, muesli,...

Set on a natural cliff the sensation of floating above the ocean was present throughout the entire stay thanks to breathtaking panoramic views of the Atlantic horizon. With a modern design the space offers numerous comfortable escapes where one can truly relax and appreciate the rich surroundings. Particularly invigorating was the cultural agenda organized by the Estalagem. Over a picturesque...

Very nice and quiet design hotel on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic-ocean. Magnificent panoramic view. Very friendly, helpful and competent staff. We enjoyed every moment of our 10 day long stay. Best poncho we tried. Go for Maracuja or Fishermans. Very, very generous breakfast. We never tried the restaurant aside from the one in their second hotel down in the...

Great location ! Swimming pool & surroundings are breathtaking. Restaurant could be cosier. Dining in two shifts because of lack of space in the restaurant. Therefore, go to the hotel/restaurant Da villa downtown village at the seaside. Owned by the same people as the Estalagem. This place has a very nice terrace with relaxing background music and a much more...

It is such a beautiful hotel, up on the cliff overlooking the little village and the ocean. The reception, bar and community room are located in the original building, surrounded by big terraces and the well-kept garden. The restaurant and the bedrooms are located in a new part of the hotel. Very modern, just beautiful. And the pool, wellness area,...

Don't be put off on your arrival by the concrete lift shaft! Once up to the top of the cliff you'll get a warm welcome from all the staff, not to mention the two dogs who frequent reception most of the time but also use the lifts when they're feeling lazy. The hotel is based around the old quinta which...

When you have the hardest already given by nature, you would suppose that you would do your outmost to make a fantastic hotel, with remarkable service and rooms, that you would remember. Well, it is not the case.. It is an average place, but it is a must go, for the location and views.

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
