“Out Of This World”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

This place was absolutely outstanding. The location and views from the hotel were fabulous with views across the town and sea. The facilities within the hotel were superb, from the pool to excellent choices at breakfast and dinner there is not one bad thing we could say about this place. So good in fact, we recommended to my wife's parents who have just got back from a weeks stay who could not fault it either. Go there if you ever decide to holiday in Madeira!!

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

On arrival I was surprised to see the main entrance is an elevator. 4 floors up and a skybridge later I arrived at reception. This hotel is on many levels due to the terrain and this lends itself to its stylish design. The hotel comprises of several buildings with well tended gardens and sitting areas inbetween. There are 3 elevators and 2 skybridges to access most areas but there is an option of steps to avoid these, but why would you - the view from the bridges are stunning. In fact the whole hotel is positioned in a very unique location - on top of a cliff promentary. There are views of the terraced hills all the way back up the valley to the mountains as well as more than 180' views of the sea. The hotel has excellent facilities - pool bar with terrace; Spa, sauna, steam room, jakuzzi; indoor pool; outdoor infinity pool; adult games room; free shuttle bus to Funchal; restaurant and mini gym. The communal areas are clean modern and comfortable with many areas to choose from for a quiet moment. The restaurant offers good food with a huge breakfast, but the evening meals are a little expensive for the size of portions though still good quality. The pool bar lunches are excellent esspecially the salads and sandwiches. The staff are very helpful and go out of their way to help when asked, otherwise you are left alone. The rooms are essentially in 2 blocks - sea view and mountain view, some have both. The mountain view rooms overlook the town with views up into the valley and beyond. I stayed in one of the sea view rooms which offered a great cliff top view of the sea. Bear in mind the upper floor of this block is only accessed by stairs - no lift. All rooms have a balcony as far as I could see. The room itself was clean and spacious with TV, air con and fridge. Large sliding doors onto the balcony and two large twin beds. The only let down was the bathroom. Though clean and functional it could do with refurbishing. The finishing of the decor and style was average. Bath with over shower and sunken sink. Functional but could do with brightening up. You can see that the hotel design has maximised the full potential of the views with the indoor pool and restaurant both having one side completely glass to appreciate the view. This is true for most of the hotel areas.

The hotel, staff and location are superb with views that are second to none. The small town offers about 3 or 4 restaurants and a couple of cafe bars and thats about it. The beach is blue flag with toilets and facilities but is largely pebble. All in all a really relaxing quiet location that is aimed at adults and mainly couples. Lovely hotel and lovely town. Great holiday.

A design hotel by name and in truth. A great adaption of an old house into the reception and bar area of a tucked away modern hotel. You might be greeted by one of the hotels friendly dogs as well as the receptionist. Open air concerts on the terrace make for great entertainment and the bar is always on hand if you feel the urge for a drink or two.
Very large rooms and the infinity pool is an extra touch. Particularly like the "Titanic" ish bow to the lower terrace overlooking the sea below. The sap is not huge but very pleasant and clean which all things considered is probably the most important thing you should consider first.
Definitely a break from the concrete hotel blocks of Funchal in a location all of its own but only half an hour or less by car if you want to visit.

As in 'Practically Perfect in Every Way'

Loved it here - great location, great amenities, great staff.
Cant wait to go back - really didn't want to come home.
Situated in a quite village - very hilly.

We had a mountain view room but were fortunate enough to be able to see the sea to the left and the mountains to the right!
The hotel provides a mini bus to Funchal and to the beach which is a golden sand beech about 10 mins away - all free.

My favorite hotel in the world so far! Fantastic location on top a high rock overlooking the ocean. Very comfortable, modern and clean. Every room has a wonderful view with balcony or terrace. Very friendly staff, good restaurant and fantastic breakfast. Two great pools, one outside and one indoor. Both with seaview. Lovely sauna with seaview and Turkish bath. Do try the massages. There are may different terraces with seats, sun beds, but the terrace on the roof is my favorite. There is not much to do in the village, but that is what I love about it. It is a cute little village, with only a few bars and restaurant away from the touristic craziness. The hotel offers a shuttle service to Funchal and offers different excursions. The hotel is great for people who just what to relax, but it is also a good base for day trips.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be great and most rooms have seaview. If you are afraid of hights, ask for a room...

Very good hotel. Very helpful in transport from/to airport, nice rooms. Breakfast is very tasty, variable and plenty. Diner is also high quality. Personnel is kind and helpful, but discrete. Hotel has lots of lovely corners with magnificent views. An atmosphere of quality, relax, enjoy. Thanks !
Ponta do Sol itself is also ideal spot to discover Madeira.

This hotel is situated in the most beautiful position on top of a cliff with many rooms overlooking the sea. Food is pretty good although sometimes unusual, but breakfast cannot be faulted and are superb with a remarkably wide choice. Service is excellent across the hotel staff and rooms spacious and very comfortable. The town is relatively small and quiet so not for those who want a hot nightlife - stick with Funchal - but to see the island and get best chance of sunshine, this is the place to be and we highly recommend it!

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
