Our wind quintet (music group) was touring and performing in the Azores and we stayed with Chris, Nick, (owners) and Gilda (who is critical to the daily operation). This is a great site for couples or like us a small group. Breakfasts by Chris were terrific and delicious. There is even entertainment from the cute lizards who live in a... More

This small hotel provides everything for a great home base before and after outdoor activities, and for just relaxing. The rooms are comfortable, there is a well-stocked kitchen and indoor/outdoor siting area and pool. The hosts are very gracious and helpful. The breakfasts varied and wonderful. Currently only four rooms, so a great place for a group of friends or... More

This is a relaxing place, we arrived here after a week in Spain at it is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful island... More

This is an absolutely marvellous place to stay - small, exquisite, and luxurious! Not cheap, but worth every dime! Finding the Quinta do Mar - and having the extreme good fortune of there being available rooms, in spite of our last minute booking - was the element that made our holiday in the Azores a huge success. The rooms are... More

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
