We spent a week at the Caloura in early April 2015 as part of a package vacation. We found the hotel and grounds to be top notch. The views are spectacular and the waterfront is an easy walk. There is a sand beach close by and it was easy to find and get back and forth from. The restaurant had... More

The positives: As previous reviewers have stated, the scenery and seaside location are wonderful.All rooms have balconies with varying degrees of ocean views. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, and we were also impressed with the choices at the snackbar as well as the dinner buffet. Lots of parking and free wifi. High marks for cleanliness. The hotel is a very... More

This hotel was excellent for our needs. When we were on our balcony you can't see anyone else. It was also a nice sun trap on the nicer days when we were there. The dining room where we had our buffet breakfast each morning has the most amazing views. We always had lunch and dinner out based on previous reviews.... More

My wife and I just returned from a 6 night stay at the Caloura Hotel and Resort. The hotel is very bright, clean and well maintained. Our 2nd floor room did not impress us until we looked out our balcony door. The is nothing short of amazing and it did make up for a rather plain and dated room. I... More

We stayed at the Caloura resort in late March/early April as part of a Travelzoo deal to the Azores. I waffled between rating the hotel "good" or "very good", but decided on the latter as the grounds and nearby scenery are amazing. Without them, three stars would be pushing it and I definitely would not return. The room itself was... More

Breathtaking views, excellent accommodation, friendly service, near ocean waves - listening to the waves while sleeping, robust breakfast. You would need your own rental car with GPS, or travel using public transportation. An easy access to a major highway.

We were in Caloura Hotel for 3 nights, and LOVED every second of it. Caloura itself is not a town, a city or a village, it's just place centrally located in the middle of the island. It is a bit tricky to get, but that's not an issue if you have a rental (which we recommend on the island). The... More

We stayed at Hotel Caloura for 7 nights and it was a pleasant experience. It's true that access to the hotel is a bit more remote compared to other hotels in Ponte Degalda but if you have a rental car, it's a close drive from the airport. In fact, the hotel is centrally situated within the island and not far... More

This hotel is a jewel tucked away deep in a little town. It sits on the coast above lava rock cliffs and a crystal blue ocean. Quite an adventure getting there as the streets are typically European, but thankfully there are adequate signs to find the hotel. I loved that the hotel was in a more residential area of the...

It was my first time in San Miguel, and Caloura was our first stop of many over the course of a several week European trip. We were so pleasantly surprised with Caloura. The setting is stunning, set on the beach with views from the restaurant and many of the rooms. The breakfast is delicious and there are many options. The... More
