Nick and Chris had set up a really great place and it shows that they care for their guests (You'd even find chocolate on the pillows before bedtime). The breakfasts were a delight and Chris can accomodate whatever request you may have. The rooms were comfortable and big. There was a great fish restaurant in a walking distance. Few things... More

An excellent boutique hotel, run by Nick and Chris with help from Gilda. We used it as a base on a tour organised by Archipelago Choice, allowing us to do the Sete Cidades walk and the Fire Lake walk. Good accommodation, friendly staff, nice breakfasts and only a short distance from the Caloura Fish bar and restaurant. Plus a swimming... More

What a gem of a place this really is! If you want a holiday with a personal touch and exceptional service choose this charming B&B. The location is quiet and relaxed, the service is unobtrusive but attentive. Nick, Chris and Gilda work very hard to give you an exceptional stay. We had a week's holiday here and would not hesitate... More

My husband and I made Quinta Do Mar our first stop in the Azores and we were very impressed. Nick, Chris, and Gilda have been hosting and serving guests for quite some time and their experience in the customer service industry shows. The breakfasts were filling and flavorful with different menu choices each day. Chris is a gourmet chef and... More

After 10 days of touring the islands this was the perfect end to our trip. This boutique hotel is comparable to a Relais Chateaux without the restaurant facilities and without the prices. Beautiful swimming pool, large rooms with modern ensuite,excellent breakfast, and very accommodating and personable hosts. The hotel is everything and more then the website portrays.

This small B&B (4 rooms) is such a great choice for a stay in Sao Miguel. It is a little ways out of the city, offers quiet but also great access to anything you want to see. The rooms are large, clean and have ensuite bathrooms--also of a good size and clean and modern. The rooms are set up down... More

Just returned home tonight from a great trip to the island of San Miguel in the Azores. The trip was was so special in large part due to the dynamic and hospitable duo of Chris and Nick (with a best supporting role by Gilda) who run the lovely small Quinta do Mar. This is a special little spot - beautiful... More

My wife and I just returned from our first trip to San Miguel and thanks in part to the hospitality of Chris, Nick and Gilda I'm quite sure it won't be the last. Staying at the Quinta do Mar is a relaxing, comfortable delight. It's very pleasantly small and especially breakfast encourages chatting and discussion with other guests as well... More
