The hotel is 5 minutes from the airport, it is very clean and very well maintained property. The rooms are always cleaned and mopped, the cleaners are very helpful and friendly. The front desk staff were sometimes accommodating and helpful as well, they allowed us to check-in early as there were rooms available. Our only complaint is that our bed... More

We purchased a 5-day package (plane/hotel/breakfast) to Ponta Delgada. Lince Azores hotel was our place to stay. It is 4 star hotel, maybe not the newest but very clean and quiet place. This hotel has a good location, in the middle of Ponta Delgada. Walking distance to Supermarket (15 min), to the Old City Center (15 min), nice small bakery... More

We stayed a week in March and really enjoyed touring the area. Hotel very clean and a great buffet breakfast.It"s just off the city center but close enough to easily walk to everything. The only thing that disappointed me was the fact that they didn't exchange money.

We stayed at the Lince for a week in mid-February and had a great vacation touring around Sao Miguel on a motorcycle (rented from ANC Moto - separate review). The hotel was clean, rooms were large, beds were very comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast was great. Breakfast options included eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh bread, local cheese and meats, fresh fruit... More

Very friendly and helpful staff . Hotel had clean rooms with a great breakfast.Free underground parking. Easy to walk around town from this location. Indoor pool could be much cleaner and warmer but had little time to want to use it since 1 week vacation is taken up with great sightseeing. 15 minutes to walk to local restaurants.Highly recommend

We got a great package deal from Canada in February. The hotel is modern and clean with North American sized rooms. It is located just off the old part of town on a modern four lane road so you have easy access to the highway and an underground car park for your rental. The staff are fantastic. My wife and...

We stayed here over the Week of New Year's Day 2015. Many hotels were closed, so this one was a winner because they were open and were reasonably priced. The room was clean and kept that way all week. The beds were fine, though the pillows were terrible. Some of the pillows were like small lumps of foam stuffed into... More

The staff at the Lince was spectacular, as was the breakfast every morning. I will agree with others that the pool area was lacking, but we did visit in the off season. The jacuzzi was not working, and the pool was somewhat dirty. The rooms were nice and clean, and the bed was plenty comfortable for my husband and I.... More

Clean, spacious rooms with beautiful views. Loved having Dove shampoo and soap. Delicious and varied breakfast buffet selection that changed daily. Restaurant buffet and a la carte menu were fairly priced and tasty. Great location and friendly, informative staff. Only reason I'm not giving a five is because the pool is a public health disaster. Black mould everywhere. I was... More
