Staff at reception was friendly enough. Room smelled mouldy and I think they're aware of the issue as when we arrived back in the room just after housekeeping left it smelled of air fresher. Nice pool overlooking the marina and a view of Pico and the ocean. Too bad the pool bar closes at 7! The old waiter is incredibly... More

The location is good but the hotel is old and outdated. The room was not really clean because its so old, old carpet and old beds. Hotel should be renovated because now its no longer 4 stars. Breakfast was ok, swimmingpool is ok.

After staying in a tiny cramped rental apartment for more than a week, my husband and I decided to check into a hotel for our last few nights in Horta. Our room was comfortable and clean. Beds very comfortable. Bathroom bright and roomy with a full tub. Breakfast was included and it was excellent!!! Pool is spectacular and service was... More

We stayed here for three nights in a room in the Sao Jorge villa. A beautiful room with your own terrace looking out into the garden. Breakfast is good with a lot of choice in bread, fruits, local cheese and marmelade!

I stayed here for 8 nights for a conference in June 2014. I did not expect much from the pictures, but I was pleasantly surprised by a number of factors, most important of which was the friendly service and hospitality. The staff went out of their way whenever someone needed something. A few things to know: Wifi was spotty and... More

Although we only stayed one night after arriving in Horta, it was a comfortable stay with a good breakfast buffet. The hotel itself is getting a bit older, but remains very well maintained. The service was very good and the lounge was comfortable. When we return to Horta again, I would definetely stay there again.

We had a 5-day symposium in this hotel. And we stayed about 8 days. Our only complaint was that in the Azores they seem to think that a queen or king size bed is really just twin beds with twin sheets... if they had done anything to bridge the two beds, including a common sheeting and blanket, it would have...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. All was perfect and i could not say anything bad about it. Staff is very friendly, the breakfast is wonderful, they have fresh fruits, the best organic yoghurt i've had in the Azores. Our room was perfect as well, a bathtub wish i love, plenty of English channels on the tv, and... More

I am sitting in my room at the Faial Resort. I have been here now for 5 days and have 3 more days here. Although I have enjoyed my stay, I am underwhelmed by the hotel. I came here for a meeting. First, Horta is breathtakingly beautiful!. The hotel is walking distance from the ocean and many restaurants. If you... More

This was my first visit to Faial and I cannot say enough about the wonderful time I had. Traveling to the home of my ancestors with my husband, brother & sister-in-law was very special. We all loved Horta and felt very comfortable there. The Fayal Resort was great and we had a lovely room with balcony overlooking the ocean. The... More
