A warm welcome awaits you as soon as you enter Hotel Coracao in the seaside town of Ponta do Sol in Santo Antão.
The friendly Belgian owners Wim and Hilde and their staff will make your stay as comfortable as possible and can offer advice on walks and activities in the area.
The hotel is just off the main road and within walking distance from the harbour where you can see the local fishermen return with their daily catch. It has 10 spacious rooms with en-suite bathrooms and a balcony. The pool is very inviting, especially after a long day’s walk or you can have a lovely relaxing massage with essential coconut and eucalyptus oils. On the ground floor is an honesty bar and a recreation room with books, games and free WIFI access.
The roof terrace has panoramic views of the Atlantic and breakfast can be taken either inside or outside. The hotel doesn’t serve dinner, but there is a restaurant nearby or you can walk to the harbour front where you’ll find a few small restaurants.
The island of Santo Antao is a walkers paradise and the hotel is in a ideal location if you want to do some walking in the area. Ponta do Sol is also the place where you have lunch when you're doing a tour of the island
The hotel is a great starting point if you want to do the spectacular coastal walk from Ponta do Sol to Cruzinha. Or if you don't fancy a long walk, then perhaps a wander to the nearby settlement of Fontainhas would be more suitable.
