The Lince is a very nice 4* hotel with a free private parking place. It's located outside the center, but as tourists usually rent a car to discover the island, I don't think this should be a problem. Beautiful and clean rooms, we had a view on the port. It has an excellent restaurant where you can choose between a... More

I spent a week at the Lince and it was a very nice experience. The hotel is situated on a incline in a quiet area and it's a 20 minute walk down hill to the centre. There is a mini bus, which will take you into town and the fare cost 55 cents The bus stop is a few yards... More

There is little for kids. Only a small pool,swings and a kids play room. The rooms were a good size and the food good. The down side is it is away from the town and harbour so a car is needed otherwise you spend lots on buses.

My experience at the Lince was excellent. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The hotel front desk staff was extremely helpful and attentive. The bartender Arturo was especially kind and remembered who we were and our favorite drinks. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I stayed with my wife at the lince in feb. The staff are great and provide awesome recommendations. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. The hotel is central to everything, and just quiet enough to relax. The daily breakfast provides sufficient choices to not make it tedious. Leverage the staff -- they are great. From the front...

Nice hotel with a good location. The wifi is free but you have to ask after the password. We had a very large room. The spa is old and could use an update. The food is good. The garage underneath the hotel is pure luxery.

very poor wifi. utterly disgraceful gym with rusted and dysfunctional equipment rendering it actually pointless. Very comfortable room with super comfy bed. Not bad position but not great either. Good range of tv channels. Awful Pool and Sauna area where much work is needed and the loungers outside were filthy. Breakfast was average and why there was no pastries or... More

We stayed at the Lince for 9 evenings. Nice hotel, clean and friendly, helpful staff. Rooms were spacious although wallpaper was coming loose from the wall. Face cloths are NOT available so if they are something you would use, be sure to bring your own. The hotel is situated about a 20 minute walk from the water, restaurants and attractions.... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week in March, and would definitely stay there again, as well as confidently recommend it. It's a fairly large and modern property (and definitely stands out in this historic city), being in a good location, accessible both walking to the downtown, and being able to drive out of town. Our room was large... More

We arrived in this hotel after 14 days of travelling around Sao Miguel. We had booked a family room (for 2 adults & 2 children) and we received a room with only one 2persons bed. Fortunately we quickly, after our demand, received a new room. However i don't get why you give a 2 persons room to 4 persons standing... More
