Everything that the other reviewers have said is accurate - comfortable rooms (& beds!) along with delicious breakfasts in the morning means you're ready for just about anything during the day. We also enjoyed having a drink from the honor bar before going out for dinner or when returning for the night. The summer evening weather is beautiful and we... More

If only every hotel experience could be like this! Gracious hosts, beautifully appointed room with every possible detail considered, beautiful breakfast and easy-to-grab snacks. We will come back to the Azores just to stay here again. Phenomenal!

Nick and Chris have something really good here: a beautiful boutique hotel close by delicious restaurants, stunning coastline, world class recreation, and not far from bigger towns and an international airport. The rooms are very nice indeed and the bed was large and perfectly comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent and advice about what to do in the area was right... More

We stayed four nights based on the tripadvisor reviews which are fully justified. This is a great place to stay - four huge luxury hotel standard rooms with their own balconies, set in lush gardens. The communal areas are great - spacious and with great views. The honesty bar is well stocked and reasonably priced and Nick and Chris are... More

Quinta do Mar is a gem in the lovely town of Caloura with beautiful grounds and comfortable, large rooms. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would not hesitate to return again. Nick, Chris, and Gilda were all welcoming and helped us plan some of our days and activities on the island. The breakfasts were wonderful with an abundance... More

Chris, Nick, and Gilda (and the puppies) were very welcoming. They made us feel at home, and were very kind. The grounds as well as the room are beautiful and very spacious. We loved sitting out on the patio (THE VIEW) and meeting the other couples who were staying as well. The food was amazing, and they cooked a 4... More

We stayed at Quinta do Mar six years ago and when the chance came for a return visit we didn't hesitate. It was every bit as good as we remembered with the added bonus of the great fish retaurant down the road which was just a small cafe previously. We also enjoyed Chris's beautiful breakfasts and a superb evening meal... More

The Quinta which is owned and run by Chris and Nick is ideally located for exploring this beautiful island in the Azores. The Quinta do Mar is situated on the south coast in the small fishing village of Caloura. Chris makes a terrific breakfast each day and is on hand to help and guide you on what to do during... More

Really enjoyed our stay at Quinta do Mar. Chris and Nick were very welcoming and made make you feel really at home, but also provided a very professional service to match any top end hotel. They were very knowledgeable about the island both for places to visit and recommendations for restaurants/activities - this really helped our holiday come together. Looking... More

I spent 4 nights at Quinta do Mar as a solo traveller and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The home from home ethos that Chris & Nick practice adds enormous value to the whole experience. The rooms are great, much thought and consideration has gone into every aspect. I particularly enjoyed using the fantastic Ipod player in my room as the... More
