What can i say?. The English language doesn't have enough superlatives to explain how great this place is. My wife and i have travelled the world staying in nice hotels but this place hits all of the right buttons. Its like having your own private villa as we only saw other( very nice and friendly) guests at breakfast and in... More

We have just returned from one of the best holidays ever. The rooms were very comfortable, location was excellent and the hosts and staff made us very welcome. The breakfasts on the terrace were amazing and we could not have asked for a more enjoyable time on a beautiful island. Cannot wait to return and explore more of the island.

My husband and I chose Quinta do Mar based on other Trip Advisor reviews and we were not at all disappointed. The property is beautiful, the room large and comfortable, and Chris and Nick were great hosts. We hope to return to Sao Miguel in the future and would absolutely stay here again.

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
