We arrived to the island not knowing how small the city/village actually was (our bad). The hotel itself is not really ugly but seems to be older than it actually is, yet the rooms are spacious and have views over the garden and sea. Wi-Fi only available in the lobby and very slow. We asked for a car rental at... More

We paid nearly 90 eur per night for this hotel which supposedly has 3 stars. We expected nothing special as the hotel is not upscale, despite the price. However, no internet connection, no double beds, and the hotel hasnt been changed since the early 80s. The staff was Nice although that does not ease the price. All in all, i... More

Very well located, with a brilliant view of Pico volcano....when weather permits. Clean, comfortable hotel, with friendly staff. Breakfast o.k., but not brilliant, with usual cold buffet. Supermarket only 5 mins away, with good supply of beer and wine to stock room fridge up! Several reasonable restaurants in the town, and plenty of nice walks with stunning views. Good place... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a package tour whilst on a walking holiday so have no idea of price paid. We can say however that this hotel is in a good location with a nice garden and pool overlooking the sea and Pico beyond. The garden and pool were very well maintained and were nice to relax...

This hotel is overlooking the water and has a nice view of Pico mountain. It's about a 5 min walk into the central part of Velas so very conveniently located. We were in room 125 which isn't the greatest - it is all the way at the end of the hotel and has an ok view. I think the rooms... More

Nice, clean, comfortable. Convenient to Velas. Breakfast was very, very basic. The restaurant was very dark. Great terraces to sit on with some lovely views. Pool wasn't open when we were there as they were cleaning it but was a good size.

We stayed here for four nights while on a walking holiday in the Azores. The room we had was lovely, with a good bathroom and beautiful views of Pico Mountain. Breakfast was excellent. It was in a good position on the edge of town.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights on our tour around the Azores. We didn't expect it, but on arrival, a bus from the hotel was waiting for us at the port, so no need to take a taxi. The welcoming was friendly. We did have the impression that at some moments the reception was understaffed, so to get... More

The fantastic view across the channel to Mount Pico makes this a special hotel memory. The room was comfortable with a little balcony. Lovely swimming pool and nice garden area. Breakfast was fairly basic but adequate. Staff were pleasant. We would happily stay here again if we venture back to this island again. Be prepared for the inevitable midge bites.... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and must say that nothing matched expectation. Finding the hotel was a bit of a challenge since the name on the door (and everywhere else) does not match the name on booking. We booked a 3* hotel named "são Jorge garden". This hotel seems to go by the name of "hotel residencial são... More
