Strange place this. It is a big hotel and for most of the year largely deserted. The staff are accommodating and pleasant. But the architecture is truly awful. It is a modern boxy building that is completely out of place amongst all the white buildings with red roofs.

The rooms are Ok. It is clean. Need a car to stay since it is a couple of kilometres from the center of the village, although the Vila Do Porto village is not the nicest place to stay on the island. The eastern part of the island is wonderful - like a small Tuscany. Quite place, a nice panoramic view... More

This hotel must be one of the ugliest we have ever stayed, and a scar on the landscape of this Azorean island. It is poorly situated, and a couple of kilometers out of the main town of the island. To make things worse, their restaurant was closed, other than for breakfast, and seems to be closed for the majority of... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on our holiday trip. The hotel is OK but the rooms are small, completely outdated, cold and ugly and so is the rest of the hotel. It is totally out of character with the rest of the island. To our opinion the responsible architect and interior decorator should get fired for certain. The comfort... More

My husband & I stayed for 3 days, and enjoyed the comfy room with a king size bed, and we had requested a full size. The bathroom was a generous size, the tub was deep enough for two. The back view from the veranda was breathtaking, you can see the ocean, of course the island is small but with all... More

Not a bad Hotel to stay in. Staff were polite, the rooms are good for a 4 star Hotel, however, this hotel had the Jacuzzi, Gym still unable due some construction work under going at that time. The breakfast was not a 4 star hotel. This hotel is a little far from the main Village called "Vila do Porto", so... More

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel 5 and in Santa Maria. The hotel manager was wonderful. She really went out of her way to help. We had an early flight out of Santa Maria and left our jackets hanging in the closet. She went out of her way to find us in San Miguel and sent our clothes to... More
