With only 3 hotels on the tiny Island and this a two star hotel (only one bookable left) i was prepared for the worst! Luckily it wasn't that bad! I think it can only get 2 stars since everything is very old and tired (furniture) and needs an urgent update. The whole atmosphere, also the Island itself, feels like we... More

We think the owner has lost interest and should really pass it on to his family, the views are stuuning, the room was adequate but very dark and needed updating urgently. there is one person who seems to do everything, taxi, reception, kitchen and if necessary the rooms. it is all very tired. The restaurant next door is quite good... More

We stayed in 7 hotels during our recent trip to the Azores and this was by far the worst and below the standard that we had expected even after reading the reviews on Trip-advisor. We arrived after a somewhat eventful flight at this Hotel - one day late thank goodness as our trip the previous day had been cancelled due... More

We stayed in Hotel Ocidental for one week. The hotel is in bad shape; walls burst, the elevator doesn't work and the swimmingpool has no water since years. The rooms are fine, just as the location, but the shape of the hotel is poor! The breakfast is very simple (bread, cheese, ham and honey) and every day the same. Even... More

This place has seen better days and was awfully run down. It was damp, cold and unwelcoming. We regrettably had to leave.

stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in August 2009. the room and bathroom are spacious. all rooms overlook the ocean. The staff is welcoming and nice, always ready to help. Special thanks to Sonya and Carina (girls at the reception desk). The location is good. just a 5 min walk from the airport and gas station. And just 2... More

I have just returned from the Island of Flores in the archipelago of Azores. I stayed two nights in the hotel Ocidental. Some publications state it as a three star hotel, others as a two star hotel. I would say rather two than three. The hotel was inaugurated in 1992, therefore it may still be considered new. Front desk personnel... More
