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.

This hotel is in a spectacular location on a cliff top above the village of Ponta do Sol, however, don`t be put off by the thought of a steep climb as there`s a lift from the small car park up to the hotel entrance and reception. It is a very well designed hotel and considering the amount of rooms, extremely...

The place is great, an incredible view and very friendly staff. The bar by the pool in on the top of a cliff, facing the ocean - marvellous!!!! The rooms are nice, but it's a little bit apart hotel style. As drawbacks - weak breakfast, the swimming pool had a loyalty bar, but no service, and the bathrooms in the...

Set on top of a cliff, this hotel makes the most of its stunning location. The grounds are split into various terraces and gardens with gorgeous views over the ocean. There are lots of different areas for you to sit with a bottle of wine in the evening, or sunbathe during the day and when I was there (June) it...

You will want to avoid this if you have vertigo, can't manage steps, have small children or are looking for the night life. Otherwise, it is in a wonderful position on a cliff face in central south Madeira, so easy to drive to east or west coasts, levadas and mountains. The staff are very unobtrusively friendly and efficient and there...

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
