View from our room of the water front was beautiful. Il least liked the pillows, they did not provide much support. The trip from the airport is... More

Lovely stay at the Vila Nova. The staff were all very friendly, polite and helpful. The hotel was spotlessly clean. Good location - just a 10 minute walk into the city centre. The breakfast had a good selection including fresh fruit, cereals, yogurts, selection of breads, cheese and meats and a small selection of hot food such as scrambled egg... More

Decided to take advantage of cheapo Ryanair fares for a 4 night break in the Azores in January. Had looked in on but not stayed at the Vila Nova in October when last visiting. This is an excellent hotel for a break in Ponta Delgada . It was very good value for money. Occupied a twin room on the second... More
