The hotel is perfectly located right next to the marina and next door to an indoor shipping centre. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. They recommended and organized island tours. The breakfast is included in the price, the food was average but substantial. It was nice to see some local offerings on the menu. The hotel bar is... More

The personnel at the hotel was very helpful, they even borrowed us an umbrella as rain can come fast in the Azores. Very convenient location with easy access from the airport or the cruise terminal. No wifi in the rooms, and the public access in the lobby is unreliable.

We stayed at the Gaivota specifically because we were travelling with our children and grandchildren and the apartment concept was appealing to us. Unfortunately the rooms we were given were not up to the standard of what is rated as 4 star. We were given an apartment that was A & B, "B" consisted of a livingroom kitchen/dining combination ,...

The hotel is not new, but our room was clean and large. Breakfast is not very Interesting, but enough to fill you up. But if you have it the second time you understand that the hall is too dark for good island's morning. Staff is helpful and friendly. The hotel is located on a main street near a moorage. Normal...

Located in the center of the city, could not ask for better service, very clean, and a great view of the harbor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My only recommendation if at all possible is to provide WIFI in the rooms and not just the lobby. Would definitely stay again at this hotel

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
