We have spent some days in these hotels and yes the setting is great but it's not a 4 star hotel. At breakfast you can't even find a clean table, a clean knife or a cup. You have constantly to ask for it. At the reception they are very incompetent, unable to tell you the way to visit a touristic... More

We spent only 2,5 days at Terceira Mar, but we left wishing it would be a whole week. Forstarters, the hotel is beautyful. For those who had the opportunity to see it from Monte Brazil (the mountain in front of the hotel), it's a wonderful view and you completely realize this hotel is something special. On the other hand, the... More

We walked in after the local Turismo office recommeded this hotel. They lowered their rates about 4 euro for us. There were 5 other rooms occupied. I won't say much about the property, I think others covered this well. The rooms are careworn - you can see it is a big summer hotel. Bed covers are fuzzy and dated. Chips... More

The hotel Terceira Mar Hotel is beautifully placed looking over a small rocky inlet. There is no beach and access to the sea is very limited. The hotel has a fitness centre and small internal pool, a much larger pool lies in the gardens. The rooms are comfortable with air conditioning and balcony, all look towards the sea. There is...

My wife and I have just thoroughly enjoyed two weeks at the Terceira Mar Hotel and it's wonderful location overlooking a bay on the island of Terceira. Our holiday was organised by Travel Counsellors through the excellent Holiday Options. We flew into Ponta Delgada on Sao Miguel on Saturday evening, being met by the Holiday Options rep and taken to... More

I don't know if is right to judge the staff from this hotel or the hotel itself, because tourism in Terceira it's a pretty new business, but... Terceira Mar Hotel is a new one( as far as I understood) with a good location, nice rooms and great ocean view. My wife and I spent seven nights in this hotel. Rooms... More

We just returned from a family trip to Terceira and Sao Miguel, and spent two nights at the Terceira Mar. It's a well tended contemporary structure, probably dating from the 60's, with a sweeping view of the ocean, the nearby 16th century fortress and the beautifully designed outdoor pool. (Our son said he expected Roger Moore as James Bond to... More

As other reviews have mentioned, it is true that location / setting is certainly the most important feature of this hotel. Only some 15 min. walk to downtown (Unesco World Heritage town), 2 min by car (taxisa charge 3,5 euros / 5 dolla~rs for thew ride); in front of the sea with direct access to it, a huge green area...

At one end of the hotel, low room numbers e.g. 201,202, 302, 301 etc. there is a mechanical pump under a grillage in the garden. It sounds off all day and all night at infrequent intervals. Get room with high last digits. Hot breakfast is in fact cold, but they will do fried/boiled egggs if you ask. Otherwise a super... More

Seven friends, my wife and I have just returned from a 10-day visit to the islands of Faial, Terceira, and San Miguel. While on Terceira, we stayed three days at the Terceira Mar Hotel.
