Our stay at the lovely renovated Terra Nostra was so relaxing and enjoyable. Situated next to the Botanical Gardens with a unique hot springs iron red bathing pool, the hotel had all the amenities for a wonderful vacation! I would definitely return and send hug compliments to the welcoming and informative staff.

Stayed here with my family in July 2014. The hotel was very comfortable and luxurious and had been refurbished to a high standard in keeping with unique art deco style in which it had originally been built. It's worth spending a couple of hours walking around the gardens as they are extensive and extremely impressive. We went to bathe in... More

The finest hotel in Furnace. Updated and comfortable. Guests have free access to the gardens and Hot Spring pool. Don't worry about the brown water. It just iron but you do need to clean up well after a soaking. Easy walk to a few restaurants. Great spot to see geothermal activity and to tour that end of Sao Miguel.

This hotel has been renewed on a marvellous way. My room was big, nicely decorated and spacious. But what I found more relevant was the extreme professionalism, care and attention of the hotel employes (cleaning, reception, bar). The hotel bar has a nice food service and the bartenders are too extremely nice, A thermal pool outside is too a wonderful... More

This is not a simple hotel, since it has an unique natural park that's part of the hotel. With the stay you get unique experiences, like swimming in thermal waters naturally hot, adenture inside one special park full of natural wonders, eat a special meal cooked by volcanic heat, experience the tremendous force of volcanic nature, etc. Beside theses unforgetable...
