Poor quality of breakfast.
Huge room, free wifi by madeira government, decent breakfast, nice and spacious loby and dining area, beachfront. All for 40 eur including taxes at booking.com I guess because its off season. Gym includes one dieing running machine and is in heated swimmingpool area . But outside there's a good strech of oceanside jogging path.
Very large, modern room. Good location and an indoor swimming pool. Nice price for this type of accommodation. It took a while before the receptionist showed up. Sauna wasn't working.
Good location and value for money
Meals cooked using local produce. Restaurant staff were very friendly. The bedroom was very comfortable As it was out of season there was very limited choice in the restaurant, the lounge area was cold, and we were asked to eat at 7.00 pm. We were also asked for payment, in cash if possible, on arrival. It was 5km from the main road up a very steep hill.
Hotel has been totally refurbished and has new owners. We were one of the first couples to stay. Only 2 of the 12 rooms occupied. Staff v helpful - we ate dinner in the restaurant alone - cooked by the cook - excellent home grown avocados, rabbit and dessert. Beautiful gardens - many free silver bananas. Very restful location - ideal contrast to Funchal No complaints about hotel but it is a long way from Ponta Del Sol and really is a hotel rural. Suited us ideally but you could not walk to restaurants nearby if you wanted.
Everything was great. What a stunning location, wonderful views in every direction. The staff could not do enough to make our stay special, including cooking what we asked to be prepared as a special meal. there is a wonderful local bar next door that serves great, if lethal, ponchas. there are great levada walks within a few minutes walking distance, the one to the east leads to a second levada that is now unused but retains a superb and spectacular path. It was one of the best levada walks out of the 12 we completed on the holiday.We long to return and enjoy the hotel, room 3 especially, and do more local walking. there are other great restaurants in nearby Ponta do Sol.
The hotel itself is a beautiful building in a fantastic setting. Not being too big you get good, friendly personal service from the staff. The meals were excellent with most of the food being grown and sourced locally (i.e. on the ewstate). Although in a beautiful setting, access via car (which is really needed due to the position on a steep hillside) is difficult, and the car parking spaces are limited.
The original features of the quinta and the peaceful relaxing surroundings It did require a car to get to it
Young but very motivated and polite staff. The design of the hotel interior is different to the usual - white and a lot of wood. If you are located in one of the upper rooms you have a beautiful view on the sunset. The menu card of the restaurant is small but every evening they have some different offers - again different to the usual. If you like to get in a hotel which is in a very positive way different to what you usually get and in combination with the hotel facilities of Estalagem Ponta do Sol the Hotel Da Vila represents a very good choice. Ponta do Sol is a calm but very romantic place. At the beginning we had the impression that we were not so welcome when we were going to use the pool or sauna of the mother hotel Estalagem Ponta do Sol. But this impression changed on the third day when we got an individual transfer to the hiking start point because the hotel bus was late. Thanks again!
