Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely setting. Friendly staff. But no tea or coffee making facilities in rooms. There should be a minimum of a kettle, cups and sachets. That is standard these days. Also it would be good to put up a glass wall between swimming pool and reception. Stops reception being too warm. Also put spa robes and slippers for going to swimming pool in room.

A well organised hotel in rural Madiera, on the sea shore. It would have helped if we knew just how rural beforehand as the 25euro and 20 min taxi from Funchal turned into 35-40euro and half an hour in practice or an hour on the express bus if you could find it. This hotel definately needs a courtesy bus as almost everything is based in Funchal. The hotel has local trips but they turn out to start in Funchal as well so lots of messing about for an hour or more to get there at start and again to get back. The meals and staff help were excellent, there is a small indoor pool and as with most of Madiera a pebble beach. Means to make tea in the room would have made this an ideal residence. There are two local levadas if its walking you want but take a taxi to the start point if your doing the long one, or you may run out of legs and light! Well worth the effort.

Excellent stay, I have come many times to Enotel and intend to do so frequently. The atmosphere, staff and views worth anything. Rooms are big, all with seaview and very tidy. Weather fantastic- it`s Madeira!

We loved our week's stay here, on a bed and breakfast basis. Everything was spotlessly clean, and everyone was required to wear masks, which meant it felt really safe. Large modern room, with a very comfy bed and nice seating area for relaxing. In the bathroom, there was a large walk-in shower, hairdryer and good quality toiletries. Daily maid service. The hotel is directly opposite the sea, and all rooms have a sea view (most with balconies), giving great views of the sunsets. It was also really quiet - we requested a top floor room. The selection at breakfast was amazing, with everything you could possibly imagine! It was such a treat to have buffet-style again, too (post Covid). From the cooked options, to all the different types of breads, cheeses, fresh fruits, yoghurts, juices, pancakes made to order... the list goes on! Several previous reviewers had commented on the poor coffee - there are now new machines and it was excellent. Also, although no there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room - which is a little odd in a 4-star hotel - you can request a free kettle from reception, borrow a couple of cups from the dining room and then make your own coffee in your room. There is an indoor swimming pool (just by reception), and free pool towels are provided in the room. I'd say you'd definitely need/want a car if you stay here - we picked up one at the airport (booked it in advance, with Insular car rental - again, highly recommended, with friendly service). We chose the location of Ponta Do Sol over Funchal as we wanted somewhere quieter and right by the sea. It also gave us easy road access to all other parts of the island as we knew we wanted to explore, yet Funchal was still only 30 minutes away by car. The hotel offers free underground parking, but if that is full, you can park for free in a nearby disused tunnel. There are a handful of restaurants within walking distance - the best one was definitely the one perched on top of the cliff... a perfect place to be at sunset. Half board at the hotel is also an option, and it's possible to opt for dinner on an ad-hoc basis - the menu changes daily and is displayed in the lift (17 euros per person). All in all, we had a wonderful week here - an excellent base from which to explore a beautiful island - and would highly recommend it.

The hotel is in a very good location, the beach is just across and there are bars and restaurants around the corner. The rooms are very spacious and have a good shower. I would have appreciate a kettle. Breakfast and Dinner were buffet style and catered for tours. The food was ok, with a good selection, both for breakfast and dinner. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.

Everything about this hotel except the view is blah, boring. The dining room feels like you are in an old folks home and the food to match. The food is not very good. The decor is not very nice. Everything seems to be beige or grey, but not in a nice calming way. From reception to dining the whole experience is dull. The view is nice, but even that wouldn’t make me return. Oh, and the swimming pool is in the lobby…. Overpriced for what you get.

This hotel was good in parts. The rooms were huge but somewhat sparsely furnished and no kettle. Breakfast and dinner were buffet style and the food while varied and plentiful was bland with well over cooked vegetables. Worst of all the coffee at breakfast was undrinkable and not what we had been used to in Portugal. On the plus side there is a lovely sea view, proximity to a stony swimming beach and and indoor pool. There is also plenty of comfortable lounge space for relaxing.

The rooms were functional with magnificent sea views, wonderful sunsets every evening. Breakfast and buffet were tour group style, mediocre food, after looking at both we chose to eat elsewhere. Even with the view I would not return.

I spent two nights in this hotel as part of a tour round Madeira. It was the best hotel of the week and I wished I could have stayed longer. The room was large, comfortable and clean with a sea view. All rooms had sea views, some with balcony. Strange that there was a swimming pool in reception - might have been a bit inhibiting to swim there! Breakfast was very good. The little town is also attractive with some decent small restaurants - but avoid the beach bar where our evening meal didn't arrive in 2.5 hours.
