I have worked with the Vila Nova for many years. it is a perfect hotel for visitors wishing to be close to the airport and to the main Avenue in Ponta Delgada. The staff are always very accommodating and friendly. Recently I had some clients that had some problems with a booking at another hotel and I immediately thought of... More

Enjoyed a wonderful nine day stay here in mid-July with my extended family. Close drive to airport and a five minute walk from the town of Ponte Delgada. Nice, bright hotel with a friendly atmosphere with great staff. Wonderful breakfast buffet is offered every morning featuring tasty local products. There is a dinner buffet option as well and a great... More

I stayed one night for a flight connection in Aug. 2012 (I had to put Sept.2013 because it's an old review). Close to the airport, restaurants and old city attractions. The hotel itself was pretty new everything worked, air conditioning, t.v, lamps, clean bathroom. Nice pool area, lounge, bar etc.... The staff were professional the breakfast amazing with good variety,... More

We spent a couple of nights here before flying home. The hotel is convenient for Ponta Delgada, is run well and is good value. The staff were helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable. The noise from the planes is a bit off putting but they don't fly at night and we were out all day. The air con worked well... More

We have just returned from 10 days in San Miguel, Azores. Based on Tripadvisor reviews, our choice of hotels was the Vila Nova Hotel in Ponte Delgada. We were pleasantly surprised in all aspects of this property. The lobby, lobby bar, dining room and common areas are all very bright, clean and modestly decorated with unimposing décor. The staff through... More

There's nothing really special about this hotel.. The rooms are dated although really clean and the stay is a great price for a decent location. It's a tad out of the city but truly only a 10 minute walk to it.. This hotel is probably the closest to the airport also if that's important to you. The breakfast in the... More

Just came back from a 5 night stay at Hotel Vila Nova. The rooms are basic, but fairly clean. It is a loud hotel and you can hear EVERYTHING, including the planes. The breakfast is not good and they serve the same thing everyday. The location is good, the staff was great, but the food and atmosphere were not. Went... More

This is my first experience with the Vila Nova Hotel and it will certainly be my last. Poor service, high noise level, safety violations.. Let's start with the bath room. 1 The tub did not drain properly so while taking a shower your ankle deep in water when I reported it maintenance came to check ran a little water and... More

We stayed here 7 nights and highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast selection, clean, comfortable accommodations, and great location. We had an ocean view and it was only a short 10 minutes (very pleasant walk) to the town centre and marina area - easy access to many of good food... More

We stayed here for three nights while on a walking holiday in the Azores. The room was very nice, with a very good bathroom. Staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was excellent. It is not in the best part of town, but is not far to walk to the centre.
