This was a very relaxing spot for our last few days in the Azores. The owners are great and very friendly. They really provide everything including tours of you don't have a car. Gilda served us breakfast each morning and she was terrific. Easy walk to Colura harbor and the bar and grill there. Definitely try the octopus salad! Close... More

We spent a week there for our 25th wedding anniversary. A warm welcome from Nick & Chris and good advice about the local area. Room was excellent (Thanks Gilda) as were Chris's breakfasts. Great view of sunrise across the Atlantic from the breakfast patio. Nice to be able to wander down and make a cuppa whenever you wish or sit... More

So happy that we added this stop to our trip to the Algarve in Portugal! Although we were only here for 3 days and nights Nick, Chris, Gilda and Roberto made it the very best it could be! The boutique hotel is simply gorgeous on beautiful grounds in Caloura! Chris' breakfasts were perfect from our rainy arrival morning when he... More

We stayed 4 nights and loved it. Nice location. Nice rooms. Great outdoor kitchen/dining. Nick and Chris were very welcoming and helpful. Only four rooms, so a very intimate feel. Home away from home.

My partner and I visited Sao Miguel for a week in early August and had an utterly lovely time, thanks mainly to this beautiful hotel and warm hosts. The small number of rooms/guests and the setting in the quiet village of Caloura create a truly relaxing experience. The hotel is spotless (thanks to Gilda's excellent attention) and the large, airy... More

My boyfriend and I have spent 5 days at the Quinta do Mar and we loved it. San Miguel is not a "beachy" island therefore you will find that none of the hotels are exactly on the beach. Quinta has close proximity to several beaches which can be reached by car or by walk. The hotel also offers a lush... More

My husband and I recently spent 2 weeks at Quinta do Mar for our honeymoon. We couldn't have picked a better place in a better location. Quinta do Mar is a wonderful establishment on gorgeous grounds in the quiet hamlet of Caloura. All of your needs are met here, from delicious breakfast choices, to the convenience of the "Honesty Bar",... More

Quinta do Mar's strap-line "The informality of a private villa, the comforts of a luxury hotel" sums out what Nick and Chris set out to achieve. And achieve it they certainly do. Staying there was a real joy. All the good things said in previous posts are thoroughly deserved. We stayed there just before Nick and Chris opened their Cagarra... More

Can't really add much more to the existing reviews. We stayed here for 6 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Nick and Chris were gracious hosts, ready to give tips and advice when needed but happy to leave us alone too. Breakfast on the terrace was lovely-lizards for entertainment and creative ways of serving the food. Delicious orange juice! Bar... More

We spent our honeymoon in Sao Miguel and couldn't have chosen a better hotel. Nick and Chris were friendly, helpful, and very hospitable. They provided us with great directions to our destinations and pointed us toward the best restaurants on the island. We looked forward to a wonderful breakfast every morning and a spacious, relaxing room every night. Before our... More
