We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights as part of a package, and so glad we did. We had a room at the back, facing the church, which was disappointing at first, but I know not everyone gets the best views! But it was quiet and quite scenic actually. The room is decorated in dark woods with a marriner's... More

Clean and modern hotel in a good location. It is close to the harbour and also a small beach. Very good buffet breakfast is served. Rooms are spacious, tea and coffee making facilities and a safe in each room.

Would highly recommend. Great locatiom.. free wifi.. very good breakfast.. staff were accommodating and held luggage for us for 2 days when we went to Pico. .. At night you get a surprise, very comforting. . Would certainly stay again.. the only complaint I would have is 2 rooms in our group had bad shower heads..

Good: The price was good for a four star hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location near the marina and heart of Horta were perfect for me. The breakfast buffet was fine. Not as Good: The decoration of the hotel and the rooms was a bit bland--it lacked a local feel. This is a minor criticism. My sea... More

Basically the hotel was very good, in a good position with free parking. We had a good sized room, which was clean and had all amenities. It was a pity that there was only one comfortable chair. The restaurant was good for dinner, but with slightly long delays at times, hopefully meaning that the food was freshly prepared and cooked.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and were more than happy. The hotel is nicely located with an incredible view across the harbor to Pico in the distance, and just a short walk to the nearby beach (do try the little pubs near the beach for a real Azorean feel). The staff is friendly and the hotel is fairly modern with... More

Good location overlooking the harbour with the menacing sight of cloud shrouded Pico mountain just over the water. From the moment of our arrival the staff were friendly and helpful, a pleasant change to some hotels we have recently used. Our room,overlooking the inner courtyard, was clean and well appointed as was the bathroom. As we were on a half... More
