The hotel is very well locates to dive. The rooms are very quiet, and you get all comfort you need. Nothing more. Breakfast is ok, but could definitely be more appealing. The people at the reception could be more friendly and willing to share and communicate. You need a car if you are there.

Our trip was primarily to go diving and the hotel was arranged by the dive company . The staff were very friendly and helpful. On our non diving day they helped us book a taxi to Furnas to go in the hot springs and eat the local dishes cooked in the hot volcanic waters. Brilliant , and much cheaper and... More

Easily my worst hotel experience. Alright, so where do we start? The postitives: there is a nice beach very close. This is pretty much the only hotel in town. The scrabled eggs in the morning were fine. So now the negatives: 1) The hotel entrance is impossible to find. When you walk around long enough and get in, the staff... More

From Ponta Delgada airport we took a taxi who drove as if he was racing in the Indie 500. Even though he sped to our hotel it took nearly half hour and he asked for €28 since the taxi isn't metered it might be wise to get a price for destination prior to getting in. We found out later that... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Marina hotel. It's a very nice and clean hotel. The location is perfect to discover Sao Miguel (30 minutes to Ponta Delgada by car) and the beach is just next to you. Restaurants are also nearby. Friendly staff.

We stayed at this hotel in Feb 2010, the off season for two weeks and were at times the only guests at the hotel. The staff were superbly friendly and the views and location are fantastic. The pool looks lovely but it was too cold at that time of the year. The cleanliness was a main concern as our room... More

Note this hotel is not in the capital Ponta Delgada. It is about one hour of drive (from Ponta Delgada airport) to Villa Franca del Campo. There, the hotel faces the marina and north from the marina is an incredible sand beach (hotel has its own access to it, although the beach seems to be public), but far to be... More
