“Located opposite the town beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

A good base fore exploring the area and enjoying the beach. Near to all the local shops and restaurants. Safe Underground car park. Well appointed rooms with good balconies overlooking the beach. Restaurant fine for evenings with a very good buffet breakfast. Indoor pool, top floor sun terrace and helpful staff.

Room Tip: For better view get a room as high as possible

Nice hotel just in front of the beach. Most rooms provide an incredible view over the Atlantic Ocean. Meals are tasty. Service is friendly and accommodating. The management was very kindly. We want to thank especially Mrs. Maria Freitas for her incomparable talents of solving every problem during our sojourn.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the rare balconies - it´s a fantastic view on sunset

Modern hotel well designed for scale on outside- looks like a row of older different coloured properties right on seafront, but large open plan reception/bar/restaurant downstairs with indoor pool, and basement parking. We had a top floor room with large balcony overlooking the bay- excellent. Room modern decor with very large photos of vintage yatchs in sail - nice. Only down points: only sunbathing on top floor with loungers, with a shower, but no pool etc; breakfast poor quality - only Madeiran hotel out of 10 stayed in this time where all fruit was tinned! Nevertheless excellent value for money for B&B. Ate at nearby restaurant infront to left on cliff overlooking the beach/bay - fantastic cod, chips and slad on balcony with sunset. Take time to stroll around remarkeable restored early C20th village behind with its cultural heritage. Beach largely of big stones but swimming and sunbathing to far right is sandy with calm water.

Room Tip: Top floor (?4th) for large balcony

My wife,son and I stayed at the hotel for a week in July 2013. The staff was sincerely friendly. They even advised me concerning my rental car and saved me money,time and stress. Overall a wonderful stay at the hotel in Ponta Do Sol.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Enotel Baia hotel mid August 2013. It was a special occassion for us as we celebrated his birthday. In advance I organised a special decorated breakfast table for us. The staff were amazing and very helpful. We got a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine. It was an amazing day for my boyfriend. We enjoyed every single day of our holidays. We had a spacious room with view to the sea. As we booked half board we enjoyed the breakfast and dinner buffet. The food selection was very good every day. The most of my holidays I was fascinated of the location. Ponta do Sol is a small village but it is unique. The beach in front of the hotel and it was so quiete and relaxing. It was the perfect hotel for us. Thank you Enotel Baia for a great stay in your hotel. I will definetely recommend you to my friends.

This was our third visit and as usual all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly in this excellent hotel

Only small problem was that the evening meal was not to standards experienced on our previous two visits

Choice had been reduced, presentation was not to previous standards and also quality was not to previous standards

None the less we had a very enjoyable 15 nights and are already planning our next trip

Room Tip: Speak directly with hotel and negotiate a room with a balcony

Deserves its 4 star rating for location and room comfort combined with price. Stunning sea views from the room balconies and very quiet. It's one of the few hotels I have stayed at where I could here no noise from other rooms. I only had breakfast where there was plenty of choice though did try the 15 E dinner buffet once and only once. Found better and cheaper meat and fish options in the beach cafe opposite and the wonderful sol polente restaurante perched on the causeway overlooking the bay. There is very little to do in the village except swim and kayak in the clean atlantic but Used the local bus to get to funchal easily. stops right opposite the hotel and costs approx 5 euros each way. Had such a peaceful and restful stay here.
