Unique location and view, seems isolated (which we liked a lot) but in 5 minutes you can be in Vila Franca do Campo (taxis are very cheap), there is a daily free shuttle service to Ponta Delgada, the staff is extremely polite and professional, the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming, the food is tasty, the rooms are spacious and spotlessly...

Hotel is just about to undergo a refurb so not sure what the décor will be like but the location is fabulous grounds go directly onto the sea and beach. Hope they keep all the wood panelling in reception !! Very isolated you will need a car or use the local taxi's to go for dinner in the nearby towns.... More

Very good rooms and a paradise location. Very helpful and nice service, big rooms with nice bathrooms with both shower and bathtub. Good swimming pool also with a direct path to the beach. Old luxury fashioned furniture but in good shape to be renewed shortly.

Just come back from a week away staying at the Hotel Bahia Palace. Overall if you have booked here you will enjoy it. It is very central to the island - but you will need transport as about 25km outside of Ponta Delgada. Although there is a pleasant walk into Vila Franca which we did on our first day and... More

This is a very nice hotel. The rooms were very big with a lot of comfort, seaside view and a terras . There is good wifi everywhere. The outside swimmingpool is refreshing and well maintained. Two remarks : 1. the restaurant offers a buffet for €20 and that is not worth it... quality of the food is low and if... More

Calm, quiet, peaceful in superb location while giving easy access to explore the whole island. An old world charm, which I hope won't be lost when the hotel is renovated, which is needed in parts. My room was palatial and sea views magnificent. Having a fridge (no charge) in the room was most practical. Staff throughout the hotel were smiling... More

My kids and I stayed 9 nights in the Bahia Palace and had the most wonderful time. The thing that was most special was the attitude of the staff. I arrived in a bit of a panic because I had been unable to hire a car online and at the airport I had been assured that there were no hire... More

It's true the Hotel is old and needs some improvements (it will have them in November 2015 and May 2016, as far as they told me) BUT: the location is amazing, the rooms are big and confortable and the staff is great and very, very nice. Great place to rest and recharge your batteries!

For a four stars hotel, there were some details that have fallen short and that should be improved. For example, the hair dryer did not work or there was no shower gel in the bath. However the staff were very kind, the swimmimg pool is amazing, the rooms have plenty of space (but with an antique decor that should be... More
