Not happy with staff. Stayed here for a conference where attendees were sharing rooms with colleagues. Made arrangements for my fiancee to share with a male colleague, as was told there were not enough rooms for me to share with him. When we arrived, they had booked said colleague into a room with 1 bed and had nowhere for my... More

Allthough the staff are extermly nice and helpfull and Allthough the upgraded rooms have a balcony to the gardens, they are all diminished due to the closness to the gardens. The ability to walk everyday in those wonderful gardens make staying in this hotel a dream, and and magnificent once. The hotel is big and really nice, but in the... More

Spent 3 nights here in April 2014. The hotel's architecture is very pleasing--great use of space, balance, colors, etc. It is a medium seize hotel that has a 'grand' feel. Room was very comfortable and cosy (furniture a little tight, but everything is there). The restaurant is very good--specializing in local fish. Soups are great. Deserts are incredible. A lovely...

According to our guide we hired for a day this is in the top three hotels on the island. For my wife and I who simply wanted luxury and gardens and a spa setting to relax and enjoy the quiet this was the best choice. The staff are amazing, the gardens were beautiful even in March and the hot springs... More

This type of pool with very hot waters are some of the best experiences that i have in all my life. The gardens are incredible, and you can feel that you are in a special place here in Sao Miguel island. Recommended with all my heart!

We were surprised how busy this hotel was on a February Saturday. Decoration is very nicely done, both inside and outside. The park behind, with the hot water bath, is really a major attraction. It was kind of funny going into that muddy water in the rain, and again we were surprised how many people there were in the water.... More

We chose this hotel because we wanted to stay close to and have (free) access to the Terra Nostra park. This all worked out perfectly and could not be better. The valley itself is awesome, the park with its thermal pool even better. Small shops around help you keep all food you need (if you do not want to eat... More

This hotel is first rate. The staff are professional, accommodating and kind. The hotel has been recently renovated to provide high quality decor and amenities while preserving its Art Deco style. The access to the Terra Nostra Park is a wonderful bonus since you can visit at off hours and really have it to yourself. The hot mineral pool is... More

A beautifully decorated (art deco) comfortable hotel with an amazing staff. Everyone here is courteous, friendly and extremely accomodating. The rooms are well-appointed (no kettle in the room though and the wifi is not always as t rong as one would wish to). The hotel is adjacent to an outside pool with naturally hot ferruginous water which can look a... More
