This hotel is brilliant. The rooms are a nice size, very well appointed, kept very clean and in great condition. I stayed at this hotel for 9 nights in June/July and enjoyed my stay. The whole hotel is kept clean and tidy and the staff are always there to help if required without being intrusive. Breakfast is very good the... More

The best hotel of our stay in Sao Miguel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The garden rooms with balconies were airy, quiet and cool at night. Spotlessly clean and a wide choice for breakfast.Enjoyed unlimited access day and night to the garden, especially finding a dark corner watch shooting stars. The thermal pool has to be done!

We stayed here for 1 week with half board (with breakfasts and dinners included). Our room is in the Garden wing, which is better than the Art deco wing, as all rooms face the garden. In the Garden wing, each guest room on the upper floor has a balcony with two chairs and a small table. Each room on the... More

Quite simply this is one of the best hotels i have ever visited. Rooms and service are good but what makes the Terra Nostra Garden Hotel a unique experience are essentially three things: 1. The garden, 2. the outdoor thermal pool and 3. the beauty of the art deco building and interiors, which despite various additions and refurbishments still maintain... More

Just arrived back after a week at the Terra Nostra and already planning our return trip. Could not find a fault with the hotel,the staff or the setting. The thermal pool is amazing - do make sure you take an old costume. We only discovered the side pool too late this time. We preferred the food at the outside bar... More

Gorgeous hotel, breathtaking gardens, delicious pineapple martinis. Loved the thermal mineral pool, too. Be sure to bring an old swimsuit and rinse off right away, as the iron in the pool stains clothing.

Located in a paradisiac garden this is the perfect hotel for relaxing and enjoy nature. Worth paying the extra to get a room with garden view. A unique outdoors thermal pool. Super friendly staff. Good food. Excellent steak. Try the unique Pico White Wine (terras de Lava) and for desert "Ananaz".

We were very excited to stay here as the grounds are lovely but we were horrified to arrive in our suite to numerous large flying brown moths. It got worse each day as various types of insects were found on our floor and the ultimate last straw in our beds. We complained no less than 4 times. We were assured... More

This hotel is probably one of the best on Sao Miguel. The rooms are really nice and the people and service is remarkable! The morning buffet is especially outstanding. The only thing I would change in this place is the lack of sun beds. The hotel has two amazing and large roof terraces and no place to lie and enjoy... More

Our stay at the Terra Nostra was one of the highlights of our trip, thanks especially to the fact that the Terra Nostra Garden is attached to the premises and is free for guests, even after regular hours are over. The room was very clean and tastefully decorated, the staff was extremely courteous, professional, and helpful, and breakfast was a... More
