From our room the view was average. It did not make sense to have the bed the way it was. Just moving the bed 180 degrees would have given us better view from the room and from the bed. Yes, in 2014 there was no internet for 2.5 days of our 3 days there. Not only no internet in the... More

Had the opportunity to stay again in this 4* Hotel. Still one of the best hotels to stay in Terceira Island. Very cosy and clean this hotel offers a magnificent view over Monte Brasil and Silveira Bay, where you can dive, swim or just even take sunbathe during Summer time. The Réveillon party was great and the food also amazing...... More

The hotel has an amazing view, good location near the city center. Our room awas nice with big balcony. They rpovide towels to swim in the sea. Nice staff. Breakfast was not ok for a 4 star hotel. The restaurant is very cozy but the food could be better.

Stayed here in June for a week, in a sea view, 2 floor duplex apartment (no. 407), with four single beds, on the hotel's top floor (top part is built onto the roof, but not at all cramped). The town is quiet and has not been touched by tourism very much, but as the island's main town has enough shops... More

Very nice located hotel with views over the sea and Monte Brasil. Close to Angra, just a 15minute walk. Near the hotel is a 'beach' were you can swim in the sea. It only doesn't have sand, but you are sitting on the concrete. Rooms are nice, good sized. We booked with seaview and had indeed a great view. We... More

Stayed for 3 nights on Azores tour in July 2013 Allocated a very good room on the 1st floor with excellent sea view at the pool end of the building. Free wi - fi throughout which worked a treat in the room and on the balcony. The Hotel itself is fairly uninspiring by design and has been wedged in to... More

The rooms on the -1 floor with numbers in the even 100 series have a 3-meter high wall topped with a 1.5 meter mesh fence at just three metres from the sliding doors of your room. The view is a patch of hopefully blue sky. The boon is you tet a hammock, which the other rooms don't get.

Situated on the seafront with its own little access to the beach. Swimmingpool area very nice. Rooms are functional, even quiet. All rooms with balcony. Bathrooms are sparcely equipped. Not even a showercap - but there's a hairdryer. Breakfast very nice. Staff at reception nice and helpful. Difficult to find the hotel without navy-system.
