Very nice stay - staff was friendly and the food very good (we went during a gastronomic festival). Internet could work better but that was not the purpose of our holidays :) the location is perfect close to everything

Confortable stay in Caracol. Nice swimming pool over the sea and 20m away from a water port where you can have excellent swim/dive. During the summer this area is used as a beach with vigilants. The hotel has underground parking and 10m away from city center. Modern. On options for your stay in Angra.

Just returned from a weeks holiday and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. Our room was well appointed and comfortable with very efficient air con, free wifi, and lovely view over the swimming pool and sea. A couple of nights we were disturbed by parties and music continuing into the early hours which was a shame. Otherwise the hotel... More

We spent a week at the Hotel do Caracol and were disappointed by their standards. It's clearly far from a 4 star hotel. The A/C did not work the entire week and despite small apologies, the only offer they made (after 5 days) was offering us a room in the basement. The wifi was not working in the floors for... More

Good location, super nice service (don't be fooled by their a bit shabby reception), good restaurant (the bar upstairs, not the one down stairs), and good price!!!! The sea pool in front of the hotel is just gorgeous! Can't hold to go for a bath the moment we arrived!

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
