Read the reviews and opted for a sea view, definitely worth the extra. There is a well equipped supermarket next door that sells everything you need for self catering. Limited kitchenware so be a little bit create when it comes to using pots and pans. No kettle. Probably has the best position in town, minutes away from the municipal pool... More

Spent an enjoyable week here in mid October 2015.Apartment was very central in Ponta Ddelgada and only about 10 mins from the airport and a 10 euro taxi fare. Indeed we were at the hotel about 15 mins from coming out of Customs. We had a one bedded apartment on the 3rd floor at the rear of the hotel which... More

Really enjoyed my stay here, even though we knew we weren't getting a 10/10 hotel we thought it did everything to suit our needs. Breakfast was great, it is a continental breakfast so expect cereals, bread, a bit of hot food and fresh fruit and yogurt. As I vegetarian, I always filled up on breakfast just in case I struggled...

Quite disappointed. Spacious apartment but no decor whatsoever. Not one piece of art on the walls. The veranda had no furniture on it. We had to drag the dining chairs and coffee table outside. Worn and uninviting upholstery in living area. Think first college apartment in the 80's to get the idea. The view is ok, partial industrial port. Internet... More

The front desk staff tried to give us some directions, but they were wrong, they were very nice. This hotel is right off the main street across from the harbor. There was a cruise ship docked and yachts. Parking is 5.00 across street and underground, very nice and convenient. The hotel room was older, nice windows, free wifi and a... More

I actually read some good reviews about this place, but when we were there, we were quite disappointed. Hotel location is great, but no view from the room we stayed. Their manager was trying to help by moving us to their "best" room, when we asked to cancel our next night, but ended up it was worse. What you see... More

If you can afford or are quick enough to book a room on the front side of the Gaivota Hotel, overlooking the marina, port and esplanade of Ponta Delgada, your experience will certainly be better than ours. Unfortunately, most rooms are plain and fairly small, with only a couple of narrow windows overlooking small neglected yards and rusting airconditioning units.... More

Hotel Apartamentos Gaivota is located across from the marina, making it convenient to walk to restaurants, arrange a rental car or an activity which are all located in the marina area. The hotel is quite small. It's not fancy, but has all the amenities one would need. -Free Breakfast offers different types of coffees (from a machine), fresh fruit, different... More

The hotel is simple, nice and clean. Great location, right in front of the harbour and 5 mins walk to the town square, and our car rental place is just next door. Breakfast is not bad with both warm and cold choices. Our room was decent sized but the view was not great. Air conditioning didn't work, but the Azores... More
