A lovely vacation. The hotel is right by the sea. Clean and tidy. The staff was always kind. In the run up to christmas were both the hotel, as well as the place completely decorated. Food was good. Because the hotel partly was very empty, there were both buffet, as well as à la carte menus. Meal was always good. …  read hotel review

Good ausganslage for tours with a car. Free underground parking, but sometimes fully. Restaurant at the cliffs long-term because of rock slide locked and the only spot for snorkeling. Stony beach in artificial Bay boring! However the island offers great beaches, if you have a little drive into purchase takes. Food can only inside to be taken, be igeschlossenen windows. Preserved -breakfast after a week not more acceptable. We have our Supermarktseinkauf w …  read hotel review

The room was large with a great view of the ocean. At first glance everything was very clean and well maintained, with closer inspection we noticed but some shortcomings (for example: dirty chair in the room and dining room). The mattresses were very hard. Breakfast buffet was not to our taste, we hardly found something that we liked. All rolls were hard. The staff at the reception was very friendly and helpful, the kitchen staff/bar staff was partly unfriendly and seemed annoyed. read hotel review

At the hotel it gives to actually expose to nothing. Four stars however, i thought a little exaggerated. The rooms are large and modern. The staff is friendly. The breakfast is nothing special but edible. In the proximity there are a few restaurants and also a supermarket. Good starting point for excursions. Which gave us the stay but a little off was the huge crib and the lighting which the sea view partially blocked. Even worse the terrible christmas music in a loop from eight to midnight through the streets blaring. By looks differently. This is i think but not ... so much the hotel's fault, but as usual with the portuguese. read hotel review

Rresige rooms with a breathtaking view of the atlantic ocean, fantastic sunsets directly from the balcony to see. Very christmassy the oversized manger, directly on the beach promenade and all the weihnachtsbeleuchtungen. Everything super clean and well-kept, only the light chlorine smell in the lobby didn't bother (caused by the adjacent pool, which is only by a swinging door from the reception area was separated). Meal sufficient and delicious, but in the long run always the same. Great as a starting point for excursions. Very pleasant guest structure, all ages and nationalities. read hotel review

Very nice hotel. Breakfast buffet is very good. Diner we didn't use it. Here, groups disturb. We were on the other side of the street food with very friendly, personal service. The food there was typiscer than in the hotel. Rental car is definitely recommendable. In our package was a 1.2 litre petrol included. Avis at the airport had a polo 1.6 tdi than upgrade recommended. This is the partly steep streets a good tip! Fun on driving to do so, as some of the streets are narrow. The we didn't use the pool, but it is for ... a hotel very large. A drink at the bar to get, is not easy, since the Most of the bar area for the free wi-fi and no beverage. With something perseverance it worked from the 3. evening ☺ We felt comfortable! read hotel review

    3.0

    An indoor pool, which is very small and a sauna available. Both seemed good okay to be (it was not used, only once inside to see), but both have already experienced better times. A 'gym' with 2 equipment, both broken, completes the offer of the hotel. In the bar a pool table and a television. Beach rough pebble beach with some umbrellas and a small area of black lava sand. No disco in the town, only a few bars and restaurants (rather for a calm holiday)

    6.0

    Great service with a very friendly and helpful staff. Good english, sometimes also understood german. The rooms were cleaned daily

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    A restaurant and a bar. Breakfast and dinner buffet. Restaurant very clean, dirty tables were immediately cleared and cleaned. Buffet area clean. Breakfast varied, however no large selection of cheese or sausage (daily same) and the lack of national desserts for breakfast. Coffee and juice from the machines, whereas the juice was ok, but the coffee wasn't alright (instant broth). Dinner typical of the country with daily a soup, a meat and a fish dish, a lot of side dishes, awkwardly salads and a huge dessert buffet. Geschmacklisch very good, if empty was immediately refilled. Attentive service, dirty plates were directly cleared, not pushy. Drink prices okay (as in Germany, in comparison to other bars on site, but too expensive)

  • Room
    5.0

    Rooms very large and clean, no carpet, with a small fridge, tv, table and chairs, as well as a safe (costs 1 0 €a week) equipped. Mattresses were ok, but this also seen better times. Bathroom was spacious and clean, was cleaned every day. Shower only in the form of bathtub. Furniture was not the most modern but harmonious decorated. Each room has a super nice view of the ocean very inclusive.

  • Location
    5.0

    A direct location by the sea, only separated from the beach by the promenade. Beach coarse-grained pebbles with a small area of black lava sand. Schwimmbucht by breakwater from the beach separately. Ponta do Sol a small quiet place with some bars and restaurants. Perfect for holidays, if you like leaves or around the houses is is in the wrong place. On the outskirts, there is also a small shopping center with a few stores and bars, as well as a gas station with a supermarket. Rented car recommendable, as public transport is not very good.

In this hotel we had the 2. week of our vacation in this year spent. We booked this hotel before in a catalog seen, but only another booked, because in the catalog nothing from the pool was. It is not a large hotel, but it has everything you need. It is located in the beautiful small bay of Ponta do Sol, a really clean and nice place. A local told us, it would be the sunniest place on the island, what we can only confirm. What we this hotel totally convinced, that was really huge room, beautiful roof terrace and ... the small but nice indoor pool on the ground floor. The cleanliness in the rooms and pool area was good and the decor in the rooms new. wi-fi was unfortunately only against fee, a minus. The super large and clean room but some small errors than made up for it. Most of the guests were tourists, the hotel is centrally located and is for excursions due to the location. However one should rent a car to book, otherwise, you were quite in a fix. Shopping possibilities in the place there is about 10 minutes away by foot from the hotel. read hotel review

    On the other side of the road, there is a bay with rough gravel, beaches in the actual meaning you are looking for at Madeira in vain. In the middle place Calheta but it is a man-made sandy beach. To the airport one must with the rented car about 45 minutes. In the vicinity of the hotel there is a small shopping mall and a gas station with a supermarket. At the sea there is a simple restaurant serving fresh fish and local fare offered. A handful of smaller bars completes the really quiet nightlife from. Public transport we didn't use. The situation we can only say: amazing!

    The restaurant is nicely decorated. We had booked breakfast. Price/performance ratio is ok, but the food is nothing special. But wasn't alright was the dinner. We have twice the buffet for 15 Euro per person, but we were totally disappointed. The dishes were qualitatively not what you would expect it to be, the meat was dead and partly not edible really. In connection with breakfast, it was really ok, but at night you better in one of the restaurants in the place. The drink prices are reasonable.

The hotel works on the first glance as several together stringed houses and fits well into the landscape. It makes from the outside a well-kept impression and also the lobby looks very clean and inviting. With its 69 rooms on 4 floors, it is rather a small but cozy facility. We had breakfast and dinner in buffet form and with the quality, preparation and Selection of dishes very satisfied. In the room there was a tv with only one german channel.

    There is a dining room and a bar. Both made a very clean and comfortable impression. We had breakfast and dinner in buffet form; %blank% the breakfast, as well as the dinner were plentiful, good and the selection was alright. Every day there were soup, fish, two meat dishes, a vegetarian dish, salads, side dishes, and various desserts in a very varied and well cooked form. The drinks were very good and quite reasonable prices.

    The hotel is located just by the weak befarene quayside away from the sea. To the airport it was about 35 kilometer, the capital about 25 kilometer. the small town center is about 250 meters away from the hotel. There are some small shops, where you could buy the most necessary things for shopping you better to Funchal. Ponta do Sol is a very quiet location with only a few small restaurants. For excursions you should rent a car, because the bus connections are rather tedious and the taxis were expensive.

    Our room was very spacious and decorated up to date. There was a large closet, a desk, three beds and a small balcony with a view of the sea.
