This hotel was well located. The staff were all pleasant. Our room was comfortable, and the bed was no more firm than most in our travel experience. While the room was compact, there was ample room for our suitcases to be placed out of the way. The breakfast buffet was fairly standard. There is a small pool which we did... More

This is a nice hotel located in the old town and within walking distance to restaurants,shops, gardens , main square and seafront. Breakfast was a bit sparse but ate here once in the evening and found dinner at the restaurant to be very good. I read one review complaining about the rooms etc.. This is the Azores, you dont find... More

I had great expectations of this hotel, both from the pictures and the trip advisor reviews. But rarely have I been so disappointed in a hotel. The rooms are completely bland and devoid of character - modern, featureless design and decoration, both in the new and the old wing. Somewhat run down and delapidated, and worst of all: in a...

If you want to stay in the town then this is an excellent location as long as you don't have a car to park. the street outside is narrow and lined with parked cars such that there is barely room to drive down. The standard rooms are good standard, the superior rooms are much the same but in an older... More

We stayed at this hotel as a couple by the end of May for three nights. The hotel hits all marks for its location which is super central in the historic heart of Ponta Delgada. However, it fails in other respects and for that reason I can't understand how can this property be rated a four star hotel. The rooms:... More

The location is fantastic and it is great value for money. In places the hotel is a little tired but there is nothing that one can complain about. The rooms are large. Breakfast was a bit limited but the food in the restaurant was good in the evening. Overall I could' the complain and I would definitely recommend this hotel

What a nice place to arrive in, the front desk were really nice and sorted the room out tout suit. Then the owner appeared and was our concierge. Do we require anything else. We are all set up for a fantastic week in Ponta Delgado . Not bad for our first day more reviews to come!

Relaxing, simple luxury, it's a pleasant stay, in an excellent location. Having come here as part of a conference with my partner happily in tow.
