Ponta do Sol is a very charming and quiet town if you are wondering where to stay this is the best place. This hotel is in an amazing cliff with great scenery for enjoying an amazing sunset, the infinity swimming pool is a must go if you are in the hotel.

This hotel located on a cliff and the reception was easily accesible with an elevator. Check-in was smooth. The views from the hotel were amazing. The room with a large balcony was pleasant. The swimming pool was rather small. The breakfast with views was good.

We chose this hotel because it was recommended by Alastair Sawday, whose discriminating judgements suit us well. It occupies a clifftop site facing south, and we used 3 lifts and a bridge to reach our sea-facing bedroom from the street. We stayed a full week, which meant we got free transport to and from Funchal and the airport. The hotel offers brilliant value for money. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly and capable staff, all of whom go out of their way to be helpful and made our stay very relaxing. The cuisine is varied and very acceptable, including buffet breakfasts to suit all tastes. There are lots of facilities, including indoor and outdoor pools and extensive gardens. Portuguese hospitality is renowned, and seems to be particularly good for British visitors as Britain and Portugal have been allies since 1386.

If you’ve never been to Madeira, the sight of concrete angles jutting out from a cliff can seem jarring. But look again. Now, take the elevator from the ground-level entrance to the lobby up on the cliff. Walk through property. Let the steps and elevators lead you from level to level. Walk through winding paths bordered by blooming hedges and up wide staircases that lead to enormous views of the sea and skies that go far beyond that fine line where the two meet.

The rooms are spacious, airy and light-filled. Sleep with the sliding doors open, and your night will be filled with gentle ocean breezes and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks below. Nap by the pool, a blissfully quiet retreat for readers and sun worshippers, with no EMD for miles. Have a cocktail on the front lawn as you watch the sunset.

Seeking adventure? Hiking the local levadas, sea kayaking along the coast, going for a dip in the bracing sea—that’s about it. Ponto da Sol, the town, is charming but hardly bustling. The John dos Passos cultural center is the community hub, hosting art exhibits and local events. Stroll the main street, then head back to the beach to grab a beer under an umbrella.

Back up on the cliff, the service, though attentive, can seem a bit slow in the restaurant during prime time. It would be nice for us non-smokers to have the smokers confined to just one area on the property; the smell lingers. And someone to show us around and help with the bags when we first arrive? It took us 8 hours of traveling to get here. Maybe a welcome cocktail? We came so far just to see you. These are details, but when the setting is so idyllic, they can rouse one unexpectedly from vacation bliss.

But these are small things. The views alone are worth going back for. And far from imposing its order on nature, the architecture and grounds are the perfect frame through which to take it all in.

Room tip: Pool-side rooms have more ocean view
