I found an incredible deal for Azores on Travelzoo and stayed at the Caloura Hotel Resort for 7 days. I was drawn to this hotel by the picturesque ocean views - however, if you're looking for a more central location with nearby restaurants/bars in walkable distance, I would recommend a hotel in Ponta Delgada instead. The lobby and communal areas... More

I was quite disappointed as I chose to stay at Caloura based on the review on this hotel which seem in retrospect, largely inaccurate. Perhaps everyone else in the Trip Advisor community is low maintenance but I expect certain things from a "four star" hotel, which are fairly standard in the world (I have traveled to Europe and generally have...

The hotel is fresh and very clean. Rooms have a great view over the ocean, and some rooms even overlook the nearby quiet beach. The food in the restaurant might not be the most exiting, but it is more than ok. Breakfast has everything you'd like; eggs, bread, cereals etc. Be sure to taste the croissant - Yummy! The pool...

My Mom and I spent a week here and loved it. The staff is very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The hotel is lovely and views incredible - every room and the dining room are all ocean-facing and beautiful. The rooms are simple but clean, bright and have great balconies. The location isn't near the bigger towns but it's... More

There is nothing negative that I could say about my stay at the Caloura Hotel. The room itself was a little dated but very clean and roomy. What makes this hotel sensational is the amazing views and location. We stayed in room 213 which faced the beautiful landscaping and ocean - breathtaking!! There is a lovely walkway from the hotel...

We spent 8 nights on Sao Miguel. The first four in Furnas, last four here. The vistas from the hotel room and the bar areas are truly first class. You're also adjacent to a nice beach within walking distance. Everything in our room area was functional. The included breakfast was more than adequate as well (although a bit crowded at... More

This hotel is beautiful, the location on the cliffs is spectacular. Clean and comfortabel room, really nice to sit on the balcony. Great big pool but 3,5m deep so not safe for children. There is a restaurant with buffet. Until 7h pm you can order pastas, salads, burgers and more at the bar near the pool. In the evening the... More

We loved this hotel. The views are absolutely wonderful. We had an excellent triple room with great sea view with a large balcony on the ground floor with easy access to the main areas. The pool is a very good size, was never overcrowded when we were there and again has brilliant views over the ocean. As previous reviewers have... More

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
