This place deserves the #1 rating! This is the only hotel/B&B I have stayed at that I can say there is not a single thing I would change. The whole island is stunning but this B&B is just paradise. The owners have thought of every possible touch to make your stay perfect. They are extremely thoughtful and great to talk... More

Fantastic hotel, and I can only apologise it’s taken me so long to getting round to writing this review. Sao Miguel was our favourite island in the Azores and the hotel was a perfect oasis of calm. So much to commend it from the great rooms, the pool, the wonderful breakfasts. All the previous positive review sum it up well... More

Many thanks for your review and extremely kind words...what a wonderful Christmas present for Chris, Gilda and I at the end of what's been a very fulfilling season, made so by the hundreds of great guests (new friends) that have chosen to stay with us. Thank you again and indeed 'huge thanks' to everyone else who have been so generous... More

We only stayed here for one night, and should have planned few more nights as this place was wonderful. The grounds were beautiful and the design of the property was stunning, clearly every detail of this place was well thought out. I have also never stayed at a place that offered such an amazing breakfast with the, and the chocolate... More

This is a wonderful little bed and breakfast and one of the best places we have stayed.Its not a five star hotel and does not pretend to be however without doubt anyone who stays will be happy with the value for...

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
