We stayed here at the end of January for 4 nights by default. Originally we had booked to stay at the Hotel Da Vila, in Ponta Do Sol, but it was closed and shuttered when we arrived. Fortunately, it was still morning the weather was dry and we had a car. Eventually we found out that the Estalagem also owned the Hotel Da Vila and they asked us to drive up to their car park.
We were given room 308, a very good room as they all appear to be, but as all the 300 numbered rooms do not see the sun at all during the winter, we arranged to change to room 512 the following day. (All the 400 and 500 numbered rooms have full sea views and get the sun practically all day in winter).
The hotel would make a good film setting with three lifts to transport you up from the road first to the reception then to the restaurant and then up to the rooms, although you still have to walk up flights of steps to get to rooms of 400 and 500 numbers. It is well designed with excellent views, an infinity outdoor pool, heated indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room as well as lounges to relax in and balconies to watch sunsets.
Breakfast was excellent enhanced by the views from the restaurant. We did not have dinner in the hotel.
Although not essential, we found having a car most useful.
Enjoyed our stay and have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.
P.S. WiFi is available free throughout the hotel.
- 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
