Nice hotel, good facilities, excellent staff. Short walk into town which is no problem. Good breakfast, decent outdoor and indoor pool, small but nice gym area. Staff are fantastic, really helpful. Ignore reviews complaining about the location. It really is a short walk into town.

A very nice hotell with everything you need; Clean and nice rooms, friendly staff, good breakfast and, modern interiors. The beds are a bit firm, as a lot of reviewers have mentioned, but weren't a problem for me or my girlfriend. The hotel is close to the city center and i guess that occasional noise from planer going to and... More

This is a fantastic hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and incredibly helpful. The communal areas of the hotel are beautiful, lovely inside and outdoor pool and good quality food and breakfast from the restaurant. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the beds are hard but I slept incredibly well. The hotel is in a prime location, with the Town... More

Lovely hotel with staff who went out of their way to be helpful. The beds were very hard,as advised on trip advisor, but we did get used to them! Good variety at breakfast with lovely fresh fruit. Room was cleaned every day and the shower was the best we have ever had in a hotel!

Stayed here for a week in early July and found it to be clean, efficient and friendly. Arrived late due to delay but they were still able to supply hot food and drink just before midnight. Reception happy to book a car for us and also phoned various places that we were interested in. Although fairly close to end of... More

Hotel has seen better days (stains on carpet, broken airconditioning, broken bins...) but has everything you need and very friendly staff. Private parking underneath hotel is advantage. Beds were terrible and definitely don't eat here, hotel is close enough to the centre of the town to go out and eat something.

My partner and I found this hotel after a hellish couple of nights in a (well, let's just call it "rustic") Airbnb on the eastern side of the island. We escaped to this gem for our last night in São Miguel. We used (and loved) both the indoor and outdoor pools as well as the hot tub. It is very... More

We stayed in this hotel for 7 days in September 2014 and it was a good experience. The hotel is centrally located, in a good area for getting around, near to all the main attractions of the city. The rooms are large with dark wood, a bit of an Asian inspiration Every room has a balcony overlooking the courtyard which... More

We've had a nice week in this hotel. Good breakfast with fresh fruit, good housekeeping and nice staff. We're leaving walking like Quasimodo though (the beds are really hard). We did use the gym and the outdoor pool, it might not have been the best ones we've visited, but def good enough.

So to be clear, he started out our trip with three days and another hotel. The hotel we were staying in was so awful we called our travel agent and told them to move us to someplace better... They were the ones who recommended the Royal Garden. Our room was located on the second floor 213, it faced the front... More
