The location of the Estalagem da Ponta do Sol is amazing. Basically it is set on a high ravine in the south coast of Madeira. This provides guests with fantastic views of the blue ocean and plenty of sunshine and light. Talking of light, this area, some 25 minutes’ drive from the capital Funchal, is said to have the best climate and more hours of sunshine than any other part of the island. Hence the name of the village from which the hotel takes its name - “Ponta do Sol” Point of the Sun. But here the comparisons between Ponta do Sol hotel and Ponta do Sol the Village ends.

The latter is 500 years old and sleepy. There’s not that much to do there frankly, despite its picturesque setting. In many way that’s how Madeira has been traditionally seen – perhaps a place for the older, more conservative, traveller. The Estalagem da Ponta do Sol, on the other hand, is a different ball game. It’s trendy, minimalistic, modern and utterly magical. A really well designed hotel. A young hotel with excellent facilities and well thought out design. There is even attention to detail in the pool. It’s infinity style providing an illusion of blending and melting into the ocean. Still, all this is nothing without human warmth and here too the Ponta do Sol scores highly. Staff are friendly and professional. They can even pick you up at the airport if need be.

Despite the getaway feel of it all there are interesting activities in and around the hotel, not least of which a sail boat trip which the Ponta do Sol can help organise. All in all a great marriage between two different types of Madeira, one genteel and slow moving the other hip, up to date and beautifully styled. The natural attributes, the sun and sea will further ensure a super relaxing stay.

Our stay at Estalagem da Ponto do Sol
Date of stay 21/09/2014
We very much enjoyed our stay at Estalagem da Ponto do Sol. It's a wonderful location if you'd like to visit the rest of the island and has all the amenities you need if you'd like to spend your entire time there by the pool. The staff was very helpful and Nuno went out of his way to help us plan a fun day touring the East side of the island. They even went out of their way to prepare is a snack breakfast for our 5:00 am flight so we wouldn't have to fly hungry. The food was tasty and fairly priced. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel. Thank you for a lovely stay.
