Good location, near the marina, a small supermarket and many restaurants in a walking distance. The tourist information office is 7 minutes away (walking). The one bedroom apartment I stayed in was large and clean but very shabby. The kitchen missed essential items such as kettle and soap for the dishes.

On the harbour drive, 300 ms from the old town centre if you walk along the harbour, even closer to the harbour bars and restaurants. Not very recent but reasonably well appointed; the buffet breakfast is quite adequate. We had a large apartment, and shopping for food was made extremely easy by having a supermarket literally next door. Staff are... More

We decided a hotel room/apartment might be the way to go on our second visit to Ponta Delgada. Breakfast, if one could call it that was included but was barely adequate. The "hot" part being mostly cold. We were subjected to very loud banging doors most mornings between 4 and 7am somewhere in the hotel. Although the staff were helpful... More

Great location within walking distance from a lot of places. Friendly staff and clean basic rooms, though we did get an upgrade as the AC in our room was not working. I would stay here again for sure.

Our family of 17 vacationed in Sao Miguel July 22-29. We arrived early that morning and our rooms were not ready yet, in the mean time we were allowed to store our luggage in a locked room. We toured the marina- pier across the road and had breakfast. It`s the perfect central location. 10min walk to the doors of Ponta... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. It was nice to have more space than just a room. Small kitchenette but more than adequate for our use. The location was great-next to "supermarket" and near restaurants and within walking distance of "sights" within the city. We thought we were getting a land view but got a mariner view which... More

I was there with my wife and kids and when arrived the room it was simple an horrible room with no window nor outside view. We had 4 beds, each of them spreaded around the apartment. The smell was simple... Blargh... Left the hotel immediately and it was difficult to convince manager not to charge the first night.

Very good location facing the sea and the boulevard. Supermarket downstairs so groceries easily available. Many restaurant options within walking distance. Did not try the breakfast so cannot comment. A decent balcony and the room is large. Had to ask for a kettle and they gave us a coffee machine which was good enough. No wifi in the room (available...
