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

Quinta do Mar is a precious jewel. Nick and Chris have succeeded in creating the most wonderful place to stay. We immediately felt the atmosphere of generous hospitality. The owners wanted us to feel at home, and we really did. They have put every effort in thinking about every little thing that could make our stay as good as possible.... More

We had high expectations after reading the Trip Advisor reviews, and they were certainly met. The place is a gem (as is Caloura), and every detail is well thought-out. Sitting out on the patio was a perfect way to start the day and to unwind after a day out exploring. Chris, Nick, and Gilda were very welcoming and obviously committed... More

We had the most incredible 3 nights in Quinta do Mar and what a perfect way to start our honeymoon! Nick, Chris and Gilda are the most welcoming and hard working hosts and everything in Quinta do Mar has been so thoughtfully executed; from the amazing breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea, to the turn down service, to cakes...

We stayed here for 5 nights and everything was perfect – there was nothing we would change. Nick, Chris and Gilda were so hospitable and welcoming and generous with their time. The rooms are spacious and absolutely spotless with a really large bathroom. There was also a good choice of complimentary films of which we watched two. Almost every day... More

We stayed at Quinta do Mar for a week - we felt utterly spoiled and had a fabulous time. Chris, Nick and Gilda all made us feel really at home - since returning to Scotland we have recommended the B&B to everyone we have spoken to & we will be back. Already planning when that will be.
