Definitely the best place to stay on the island! Whilst the decor is a little tired, the view is incredible. A short walk through a sloping garden leads you to a small cove where you can enjoy the sounds of the sea. All rooms have a balcony where you can enjoy the view at sunrise and sunset. Hire a car...

We were concerned at the location of the hotel with reviews from Trip-advisor but need not. This hotel is a fab hotel in a great but remote location. There is only three floors and the rooms are clean and tidy, a little old fastened but that's the Azores for you. The staff were friendly and polite and did what they... More

We spent a week in Caloura Hotel Resort in early July and we can highly recommend it for relaxing close to nature holidays. The 80-room hotel originally was built about 40 years ago but since then was expanded and modernized. The hotel strongest asset is its location - at scenic cliffs area, about 5mins walk to two very nice public... More

Caloura hotel is a large hotel. People at the reception were not friendly at all! For example, when we checked out, they only said the amount we had to pay without any words like "goodbye, have a nice trip". The hotel is very expensive for snacks in the bar at the pool and in the restaurant. For that price, you... More

We spend 2 weeks on the island in this hotel. And I think its probably the hotel with one of the best views you can have, every room has a view over the ocean. It's clean and has a good and friendly service and everyone speaks very good English. The furniture in the room is a bit outdated but but... More

We (couple in its 30ies) stayed here for a week. If you have a rental car, it is a good location, without, you are in big problems. The hotel is full of German tourists, most of them in their 60s and they are often in groups. Some of them are also quiet loud. The hotel was clean, rooms were ok... More

The view is spectacular, maybe the best hotel location on the island. As for the hotel itself, the tacky design hurts my eyes, the air ducts creak REALLY loudly in some of the rooms when it gets windy. The only edible things at the breakfast buffet are the items that the kitchen did not personally produce (like cereal and fruit... More

If you want to stay outside of Ponta Delgada, and I suggest you do, you probably won't be able to do better than this but you'll need a hire car (unless you intend to spend a fortune on taxis). The location is lovely, the rooms are very nice and the restaurant is satisfactory (but not adventurous). There's a nice walk... More
