This is a stunning house with lovely views out to sea from the front terrace. It was beautifully kept with a high standard of service. The infinity pool was a good size and a welcome relief on hot days. The bedrooms were comfortable and nicely finished. We enjoyed retreating to one of the very comfortable lounges to read or use...

The location is great. We stayed there to visit the island on our 10 day trip through the Azores. Great place, wonderful decorated. It's a mansion, and we stayed there by ourselves. Perfect price value! Even if the location is close to the main road, it is quiet, and you look straight onto the ocean

This is a wonderful place to stay with everything you need. Clean, well kept, excellent. We would not consider staying anywhere else on the island. The Manor House is beautiful. You will be made to feel welcome. Parking is available.

The manor house itself is beautifully restored and furnished. The individual bedrooms (11 of them) are comfortable. There is a gorgeous chapel attached to the house (that includes a 2-story suite in the back) and a separate guest house best for a family. The houses have views of the ocean out the front and there are gardens/orchards and forest in... More

A palace on the sea. Everything is the best, the food, the breakfast has everything is excellent. Call of the best I've ever seen, ask yourself a coffee or tea, we met with much sympathy and kindness. We asked a taxi and were soon met with great delicacy, and not pay the phone calls. I loved it, super quiet relaxing... More

We were really looking forward to our stay especially after having read good reviews but we were disappointed. It is a beautiful building with charming gardens but to call it a hotel is nonsense. The restaurant was closed, tea and coffee should have been available 24 hours but wasn't. Our roomwas cold and breakfast was stingy. We had to repeatedly... More

We stayed two nights in Quinta das Merces. The hotel is not far away from Angra do Heroismo, although it is too far to walk. So a car seems to be necessary, which can also be used to explore the island. Between hotel and sea a quiet busy road is located, but the Quinta is quiet far away. It is... More

We stayed in the Quinta with a group for five nights in November. Our room was very cold on arrival and we received no warm welcome or hospitality during our stay. The Quinta was being run by the daughter and son of the family who were begrudging in everything they did. They couldn't even be bothered to bid us 'good... More

We stayed 3 nights here at the beginning of a 11 day swing through the Azores Islands. We were surprised when we were told that the renovation of this 17th century building took 4 years to acquire the permits and 1 1/2 years to complete. As other have commented, it feels more like a bed and breakfast than a hotel.... More

We just returned from our 10 day visit to the Azores. We stayed 2 nights at Quinta das Merces. We had read other reviews for this hotel and they were quite pleased. It really is the most beautiful "home". It has 11 rooms so it is kind of like a bed and breakfast but large, very large. The home was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quinta das Merces - A secret place at the Atlantic Ocean. The Country House - Quinta das Mercês is ideally situated in the protected area of Mount Brasil, in Island Terceira, Azores. It grows from the sea line through the interior within an area of about 35,000 square meters. It gathers the ocean influence with a dense extension of Atlantic woods wrapping an architectural set of great historical and cultural value. The farm roots go back to the XVIth century when the actual farm tenant’s house was built. In the XVIIth century was raised the Manor House to which, in the same century, was added the chapel in all alike a small church. The House and the Chapel are the nucleus of one of the last examples of the Feudal Architecture on the surrounds of the city of Angra do Heroismo. The outside space, with deep connection to the sea, was valorised through a careful landscape architectural project witch faithfully kept the original line of the land, implementing selective areas of leisure. It is a multifaceted space directed to an exacting and qualified tourism demand. The interaction with the sea allows practicing numerous sports in the open wide Atlantic and the dense woods invite to share a relaxing environment. The Country House Quinta das Merces is a unique space where nature perfectly combines with a rich historical patrimony, giving the pleasure of an unforgettable experience. ... more   less
