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

Just returning from the Azores and staying here for a week was good. The hotel is very clean, has a good breakfast, staff very helpful, free parking is great. Being a little older, I thought this hotel was slightly too far from the city center. Even tho we had a rented car we did not use it @ night because... More

This is a typical three star European tourist class hotel. The lobby is nice, it has free underground parking & the included breakfasts are fine. The rooms are very basic with few amenities. There s a blow drier, no shampoo, only liquid soap the mini bar is warm & very thin pillows. The wifi, while free, is inconsistent.mour first three... More

My wife and I decided to spend Xmas and New Years in the Azores and found this package. From the beginning every step was professional. Staff seemed to be well trained and a very professional personal presentation was made by whoever we dealt with. We ate often off the buffet which had an excellent choice of local and general cuisine.... More

Found the front desk staff very friendly. They assisted with car rental and a day of golf. They were also helpful in providing feedback on tour ideas and restaurants we were looking to try. They accommodated our single bed request AND high floor request which was made after we booked our trip through Travelzoo

My son and I were very pleased with the accommodations at the Lince Hotel. The room is large with 2 queen beds. Lots of extra blankets and pillows are in the closet. The bathroom is large with an excellent shower. We enjoyed the many choices at the breakfast buffet each morning during our 6 day stay. Ponta Delgada city center... More

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights in the last half of November 2014. The hotel seems quite new and is an interesting design. On entry, you are greeted by a wide and long curving lobby area with lots of glass, with the reception desk at one end and the dining area at the other, and a small bar... More
