This is an interesting hotel since it is a majestic hotel with grandious features, like the entrance or the large rooms with closet, but its needing some repairs like substitution of carpets and drapes and solve some minor problems in the rooms (taps and loose ceilings). Although there are some minor problems with the rooms and the overall style is... More

We stayed here at the end of October with the children. The location was what we wanted, quiet and away from noise I would suggest a rental car is needed, its a twenty five minute drive to Ponto Delgado but less than five to Vila Franco do Campo with its supermarket (Sol-Mer good place for a cheap meal and coffee)....

I am sure this once upon a time was a genuine 4star hotel, but today it is just old and it doesn't seem like anything has been done since it's original state. Dinner at the restaurant downstairs was not very good, and the room smelled of moist. Location is remote, but indeed picturesque. Did not try the pool, but there... More

Bahia hotel looks dated and tired on the outside but inside it lives up to its name, staff were friendly, The buffet meals are what you expect, but the a la Carte menu is five star, especially the blood sausage.(black pudding). Our room was on the first floor, with an L shaped Balcony and a magnificent view of the atlantic,... More

We had such high hopes for this hotel being it's beautiful location. Those hopes were smashed upon entering the building. You are immediately hit with the fact that the hotel hasn't had any updates in at least 20 years, and for a hotel, this is a VERY long time! The woman at the desk was quite rude, didn't smile or...

You never get a second chance for giving a first impression, and our first impression was very disappointing. The elderly lady at the reception did not welcome us, not let us know with a friendly smile that we just arrived at 1.40pm, so 20 minutes before the scheduled arrival time, but just an angry "You are 20 minutes too early,...

I've stayed at Hotel Bahia Palace 5 times and am looking forward to the 6th in 2014. Situated on the island's biggest and best sandy beach, it offers tranquility and an escape from the stress of city life. At the same time, it's only a short (a very cheap) taxi ride from Vila Franca (5 minutes) and about 15-20 minutes... More

What a mixed bag. Some things about this place were sensational and others were terrible. I think it has the potential to be amazing with a bit of work. First thing: the price was absolutely smashing, and included a king room, ocean views and daily breakfast for 2. It was in a superb location on the island, close to the... More
