Not only a first class hotel, but a naturally heated thermal pool that is bright orange with the iron content. As a hotel guest you can use the pool from first thing til midnight- and it's just fabulous. The service and quality of everything in the hotel was faultless….

Stayed here as a family for a short break in the middle of two weeks in Sao Miguel. The rooms were tastefully furnished and we had lovely views looking toward the glorious hot spring. Had a couple of hours in the spring - delightful although please wear dark coloured / relatively unloved swimwear as the iron in the water (which... More

You don't have to be staying in the hotel to get to explore the gardens and hot spring. You pay a small fee and you're able to explore. There's changing rooms and showers, so you have everything you need as just a visitor. But the water will change the color of you swim suit, so wear one you don't care... More

The main attraction of the hotel is undoubtedly the Gardens, which are unbelievably beautiful. The hotel is a great place to relax and hang out, especially when the weather is nice. The rooms are fairly spacious (at least the ones in the modern wing) and are nicely furbished. A couple of blips on the record: the minibar is roughly 3x... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of July/beginning of August and were disappointed with the hotel - principally with its location. Being 500m up in the mountains we frequently found ourselves above the cloud line, or rather we would have done if we hadn't driven off to the coast and the sunshine! Three days out of four were...

Since the hotel is newly renovatet everything is fresh and clean. The rooms have amazing bathrooms and are fitted high end. The gardens around the hotel are magic. We had dinner and lunch at the hotel bar and have to say very tasty. Breakfast had a good choice of fresh local products, we also had dinner at the hotel restaurant... More

I don't really think that I can add more than has already been written several times over by other reviewers. All I can simply do is agree with all of them that this is indeed a top hotel in an amazing location. The gardens are fantastic, no matter what the weather (and believe me in the Azores you get all... More

We loved everything about this place! The hotel itself is quite comfortable and the staff is tops. The food at the main restaurant is amazing (try the signature fish fillets with home made tartar sauce or the Boiled Dinner made in the volcano) and the chef is quite creative. The bar service is efficient and professional (try the "Mr. Antony")... More

Hotel far exceeded our expectations! This was our first trip to the Azores, and we definitely want to go back again. The hotel itself is great - clean, comfortable rooms, friendly and extremely accommodating staff, nice bar, excellent restaurant with tasty free breakfast, and amazing location. The botanical gardens are themselves worth a trip. The hotel staff can also set... More

If you are looking for great accommodations on Sao Miguel, the Terra Nostra Garden Hotel is the place for you. We just returned from our trip and we are already planning our next stay. The hotel is very clean, quiet, comfortable, and in a great location. The staff was friendly, helpful and for the most part spoke English very well... More
