This place must have the best views of anywhere to stay in Furnas as it sits on the side of a hill overlooking the village. These views could be enjoyed from a well sized balcony. There is also a very large outside terrace area with comfortable seats from which you can also enjoy the views. We slept fine apart from... More

We spend two nights in Vista do Vale on our trip around Saõ Miguel. The hotel is situated a bit uphill, on the edge of the village of Furnas, however it is a short walk to the center. We had a room with a small balcony and a fabulous view on the village and the surroundings. The welcome was warm... More

If you go to Sao Miguel, you should at least spend 2 nights in Furnas. We enjoyed the walks in the neighbourhood very much. Vista do Vale is a very good option to stay. Every evening we had a glass of wine on our private balcony which had a lovely view on Furnas. I enjoyed the peace and quiet. The... More

We spent three nights at this hotel to kick off our 3 week vacation in the Azores and were very pleased. Beatriz welcomed us and spoke very good English to answer all of our questions. The room offered nice views of Furnas and we enjoyed being just on the outskirts of town. We enjoyed walking into the center for meals... More

We were at this hotel last summer and there were some problems. The room was fine , nothing fancy, but there was no AC and when it got hot - which it really did as the sun shone directly into the room every afternoon - there was not much respite. We were also overcharged 14 euros too much for laundry... More

One of the main attractions in Furnas is theTerra Nostra Park, a beautiful botanical garden with a pool with warm and muddy waters. Furnas also offers many hot springs, including mineral, sulphurous and mud sources, widely... More

Me and my wife stayed at Vista do Vale for 3 nights in June 2009. The village was not too crowded that time. We got really friendly and personal service. We had a double room with a balcony. The panoramic evening view from there over the village and valley was truly therapeutic. I've travelled in over 40 countries, so I've... More

Furnas on São Miguel is a magical place with the most beautiful surrounding scenery. [The highlights are the walk round the nearby crater lake and a visit to the superb Terra Nostra botanic garden - non-residents of the Terra Nostra Hotel are welcome at the garden (admission 4 Euros)]. The Forestry Post gardens should also be included in a spring... More
