The lobby decoration is very beautiful, oriental style, that reflects the hotel`s interior garden. However the rooms decoration don`t have the same impact. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean.

The Royal Garden Hotel is just a very good hotel in an ultra-convenient location in Ponta Delgada. You can in minutes walk to all the sights, restaurants, and shops in the old town and it at the same time very close to the airport. This is a large modern hotel with many facilities. Every room has a balcony overlooking the... More

This hotel is in a great location, not in the middle of the town but just on the outskirts of Ponta Delgada. The staff was most helpful and the rooms are comfortable, not luxurious. Do ask for a pad to go on top of the mattress as I had read in other reviews that the mattresses were hard. This additional... More

We had a nice stay over Christmas starting with the helpfull reception staff over a nice breakfast buffet to the bubbly jacuzzi. Excellent wifi which of course is a must these days. Nevertheless my children cannot do without. Agree with other reviewers statements about dinner being acceptable but nothing special.

5 minutes away from the Ponta Delgada airport (by car) and only 10 minutes walking from the main square of town and major monuments, Royal garden Hotel offers very good quiet rooms, very clean and a quite good breakfast buffet included in the price. Nice warm interior pool and jacuzzi, and a nice outside pool. Also a little gym and... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of an escorted tour. I give it an average rating although there were some good points to the hotel. It is rated as 4 star and I don't believe it quite reaches that level. The rooms are pleasant enough and the view of the garden from most of them appealing. Internet was free... More

As it is slightly (3-4 long blocks) out of downtown this Hotel has space for a zen garden and a large swimming pool and spa. Rooms are standard large commercial hotel quality and most face an large inner courtyard. All rooms on the courtyard have balconies. As such you can leave your balcony door open for the warm island breezes... More

We stayed here at the end of September. The hotel was fine. Clean rooms and we didn't find the beds too hard! Our room faced the japanese garden and we found the water feature very restful. The pool area was lovely. The breakfast was adequate with a fair amount of choice even if the same things appeared each day. It... More

Our room over looked the hotels garden, everything was clean and well keep. Only odd thing was that our King size bed was to twin push together and the bedding was made up as two twin beds. Had to remake beds every night

Good hotel, clean spacious rooms, good location. Beds are on the hard side of firm! But a few guests asked for foam mattress toppers which were provided. (Wish I'd known that before I left!) Rooms are a little jaded, with marks on carpet etc, but nothing too terrible. Bathrooms very clean and towels are fine. Toiletries not the best I've... More
