Would I recommend it? Yes. Did I like it? Absolutely. Why don't I give it an excellent? Due to silly details that would cost nothing to repair, and this makes it annoying as I would like to give it an excellent. The beds are big, airco worked fine, the wifi is acceptable. However the showerhead should have been replaced (leaking),... More

It's a hotel with highs and lows. Good size bed (and comfortable), poor wifi. Good swimming pool/jacuzzi/sauna, poor gym. Good breakfast, poor garage (too little). The rooms views are very good (one side to the mountain of Lagoa do Fogo and the other size to Ponta Delgada town).

We came to Azores to enjoy diving activities, so every day we needed a comfortable place to rest. This hotel provided us not only with comfort, but also with service and excellent food! It is near Ponta Delgada downtown, so, every evening we could chill out in that picturesque area which is walking distance.

The Lince worked perfectly for our family of 4. Our room was fairly spacious and clean. We did enjoy the pool. The front desk staff was friendly. We did find it to be quite a ways from city center (like a 15 minute walk) and we didn't find lots of restaurant or cafe choices around the hotel (but we might... More

I really liked to stay at this hotel. Very nice staff, that helped us to find some good places to visit in our stay in São Miguel. Very good breakfast and dinner. The cleaning was also very good, and the localization is also good, at 15 minutes walk from the center. I didn't give 5 stars mainly because of the... More

Our summer stay was comfortable, but missing a few details. I hope the following information does not deter you from booking this hotel, but serves as helpful information to better prepare for your visit there. The room was spacious and clean. A few details that could be improved were definitely the WiFi access. We got limited access from the bathroom... More

This is a clean, modern hotel with a helpful front desk staff. Anyone who stays in North American hotels will enjoy the variety offered at this breakfast, however, the coffee is horrible, can't quite figure out how they make brewed coffee taste like instant. Fifth floor rooms have great views and room 529 is especially good.

Pros: The Lince was a nice hotel. Our room was nice. It is about a 10 - 15 minute walk to town. We even walked to the botanical gardens and mall. There were plenty of restaurants nearby. The staff was very friendly. They gave good recommendations. There is a great place for pastries and lattes just up the street. It... More

The Lince is easy to find. Our room was on the 6th floor, very spacious and comfortable. The parking is a huge plus as we rented a car for the duration of our stay. The breakfast is very good... more options than I have seen at any other hotel. Two downsides - its a long walk to the city center,... More
