Good location with easy access to city's main attractions. Very helpful staff. The rooms are comfortable and the hotels amenities are very good. The WiFi is free both in the rooms and common areas. Nice small outdoor pool to relax after a day of sightseeing. Would highly recommend.

Friendly, accommodating staff. Good hotel for families and groups traveling together. The breakfast, food service and bar are good. However, the beds were uncomfortable and made for restless nights. It was like sleeping on a box springs without the mattress.

We chose Vila Nova for the last 3 nights of our 12 day trip on Sao Miguel. The hotel is at walking distance to the marina - easy for doing whale-watching tours, next to the highway heading to the west, north and north east of the island, and 7 minutes to the airport. That being said, we really hear and... More

I only booked for one night, based on proximity to the airport. It is all the way at the end of town, so it was easy to walk, but further then it needed to be. I was under the impression that there would be wifi, but it really only worked in the public areas. I had thought about staying more... More

Hotel Vila Nova is a Canadian owned hotel. It is ideally located if you like to walk. You are close to the marina, restaurants and downtown areas. It is about a 10 minute drive to the airport. Rooms on one side of the hotel has a tiny balcony, the other does not. Rooms are a typical 3 star hotel size.... More
