Located in the best area of the beautiful village Ponta do Sol, this hotel sits enthroned on a cliff. Therefore you have a perfect overview of the old village and more than 180 degrees of ocean.
I would definitely recommend a room with sea view. Looking at the horizon is fantastic and you are very, very close to the ocean.
What makes this hotel special is the beautiful facility. Many well-thought of design elements, bridges and elevators. And a pool where the hoirzon melts with the ocean (optically).
The fitness center used to be old-fashioned and was a bit lost in the whole facility. Last year it got removed and was replaced by a spa. You can get a very nice massage there.
The staff is very friendly. Actually this starts already when being picked up at the airport. The hotel offers some unique programs such as a sailboat trip or a beautiful hide-out called Faja dos Padres.
As there are only about 60 rooms, this makes a holiday a relaxation.
I am a returning guest, for 8 years now. This is probably the best judgement for a hotel.
Keep it up!
P.S. The only disadvantage I see: There is no internet in the room available. You have to go to the bar or library. As more and more people use the internet these days, this makes the internet connection very slow sometimes. But in the end: who wants to work when you are in such a wonderful place?
- 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
