There are about 20 different houses which are owned by different owners and booked through different agencies. We stayed in unit 20. It was not so close to the beach but the view was still splendid. Our "house man" did the dishes. It was a beautiful house, but there were some issues like no gas connected to the stove, the... More

The staff at the gate did not even get up to come and assist us when we asked where is the office. When we asked when why they don't want to help us. They said they don't want white people there. We were there 21 January 2016, about 21:00. There where 2 guys. They were very rude! Because of them... More

Great view from the balcony. Very cool as it was very hot time i was there. Very good work by cleaning lady. The only down side was the walk from the car to the house if you carrying something. To access parking for house number 11, you need a 4x4 or atleast 4x2 with diff lock. house has plenty of... More

This review is from our trip to Ponta do Ouro which happened in May of 2014. The houses that make up the rental properties in Mare E Sol vary quite a bit in their floor plan, condition and location within the property. We rented #6 and it had a door to the deck which didn't lock. There were times when... More

A bunch of us traveled up from Durban to stay in Ponta for two night and were looking for decent accommodation. Mar e sol was perfect in that regard. We booked two houses, number 13 and 11. Both houses were spacious, all appliances were working, beds were comfortable and clean. Showers working. The houses were about a 5-7 min walk... More

Each house is individually owned and the standard of the houses therefore differ. I will suggest that when making a booking, confirm everything that is advertised on the different web pages for the complex, because what is advertised, is not what you get (TV not working, fridge with ice maker not working, aircon in main bedroom not working, drinking your...

We visited Ponta do Ouro, with a few friends, four couples in all, and stayed at unit #2, we were impressed. The unit was fully fitted with all best quality appliances, crockery cutlery and furniture. Location may not have been the best, but the quality of the accommodation compensated for that. When visiting Ponta again will definitely book this unit.

Mar e Sol as an establishment is just ok. Each house is individually owned, so while some may have superb decor and upkeep, ours had one working toilet out of two, no electricity when we checked in, a locked safe which we couldn't access, and a bathroom door that locked you in unless someone opened it from the outside. There... More

We live in South Africa, so decided to do a quick and easy holiday to Ponto do Ouro in May. Researching lodges, I quickly realized that Ponto isn't really very quaint or charming as a place, and when I arrived there that was confirmed. However, Mar e Sol is in a really stunning mountainside location overlooking the sea and if... More
