Our hotel review.

Hotel Moniz Sol is a very cheap hotel (Summer 2007, 65 Euro for 2 Persons + bed and breakbast).
The rooms offer a fantastic view upon the sea and the North coast of Madeira. At nights we sat on our balcony for several hours to listen to the waves and to watch the street lights of Seixal, Sao Vicente and Ponta Delgada.
The bath rooms shines and the rooms are clean and comfortable.
Porto Moniz is a very quiet village in the evenings and then it is nice know that the hotel bar remains open until midnight. Drinks and cocktails are very cheap as well, but this is kinda typical for this region. The further away from Funhcal, the cheaper everything becomes.
The hotel personel is very fiendly.
The only disadvantage is the lack of airco in the bar and restaurant.
The hotel offers value for money and together with its exceptional sea view we recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit Porto Moniz.


Smokers get a room on the first floor, where the view from the room is less spectacular. On the second and third floor an ashtray is provided on the balcony.
