A little distant from the airport, located on the ocean but view could have been better. They were doing work on the sea wall so you saw cranes and heavy machinery. All in all the hotel itself was very clean and the staff super friendly and accommodating. Their morning breakfast was great. Would recommend this hotel as the rates were... More

Looking for an out of the way place to stay with a great view, friendly staff and time to enjoy? The Hotel do Mar is the place. We started our vacation here, we needed some unwind time and this was the perfect place to do it. It is out of the way.... about 50km from Ponta Delgada, and so worth... More

Very nice and helpful staff. Fantastic breakfast included in price of room. Air conditioned! We had a room with a balcony overlooking the street and ocean. The room was clean and comfortable. It's a nice quiet area with a small beach next to it, less than 5 minutes walking. I would stay there again for sure.

Our first lesson in the Azores was that once you leave Ponta Delgada, it gets pretty rural - everything shuts down early and is super quiet, at least in late May. We wanted a hotel closer to the east side of the island for a night, with our other 3 spent in Ponta Delgada and this was a good choice.... More

Nice place with beautiful view, helpful staff (no problem with serving breakfast at 6 am, printing maps or any other help), parking places directly in front of the hotel, clean rooms, simple but really tasty breakfast (including local cheese, fruits, cakes). The position directly at the ocean was cool, in the end of our vacation (beginning of September) we were... More

Staff are friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable (except for small lumpy pillows). No safe or minibar but we didn't have a problem with losing valuable or getting drinks. Great view from balcony although construction on the harbour wall made sleeping in difficult!

The hotel Do Mar was perfect for us in May. Quiet,friendly staff,excellent breakfast,free parking in front and lovely views from our balcony. The price was right too! Povoacao is acute little town with spectacular views from the road to Furnas and the Nordeste. If you are looking for nightlife you stay in Ponta Delgada!

Very nice situated with ocean view. Rooms are clean and simple. We missed a refridgerator in the room. The hotel is an hour drive from the airport. Friendly personnel. In the neighbourhood of the hotel are 3 restaurants, Toronto a noite, Jardim and a restaurant near the harbour.

Stayed here for 4 days - and didn't regret a second! We had a room which went to the sea front (better: to the little harbour). It was not too small, clean - but nothing special. All in all - ok. A big plus: the terrace to the sea! You might expect that you can go to sleep with the... More
