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

Pleasant and quaint. Lots of expansive lobby/lounge areas. Loved the cocktail, snack bar on 1st floor. Breakfast buffet was same everyday. No tissues, washcloths, but that's typical in Europe. Shampoo came in small packets. No gift shop. Hair and nail salon was nice. Reception staff was mildly courteous; but looked too busy to assist. Great location, not far from plaza.... More

Our room was clean but the decor was dated in contrast to the rest of the hotel. The television was old (not a flat screen) although it had a few English-speaking channels eg MTV, news. Our room had terrible wifi connection (in the town centre nearby the free wifi is excellent) and two single beds (even though we had requested... More

My wife and self stayed for 1 week - Saturday 11th to 18th April. The hotel is modern with interesting furnishings. Lovely and quiet and little more than 10minutes walk from the port front and marina walk way. Our room was more than adequate and the buffet breakfast was bang on. The evening buffet meals were very good value, not... More

I stayed here from 3 to 10 April 2015 and enjoyed my stay. The staff were very helpful, always happy to tell us about what there was to do around Ponta Delgada as well as São Miguel island. The rooms were comfortable and the bar staff were friendly. We were too busy to use the Pool and Gym, but they... More
