I hope that the Pousada Forte de Sao Sebastiao has won countless awards for the conversion of a 14th century fort into a modern hotel because it is stunning. Ocean views from every room, expansive area to relax by the pool and the ability to walk around the old port and pretend you're on watch for pirate invasions. Our room... More

We arrived at the Pousada late in the evening after a long journey from Norway. How delighted we were when we came to our suite. It was really huge, but with the bath built inside the suite, the old room was divided in two sections, one sitting area and one sleeping area. A good choice! And we had 5 windows,... More

We had a reservation made by e-mail through pousadas, because the web site would not give any reasonable rate. When we arrived, they first could not find our reservation, then after searching further following my search for my printout, they found it. Next the issue apparently was to find us a room, although the place was empty mid-February; probably meant... More

Stayed at the pousada 2 days, not a lot of people due to it being out of season but the stay was very comfortable. Everything was great and no complaints, the only thing we could say was that they should have wireless internet throughout the hotel and either have a shower curtain or prolong the glass on the shower because...

My flight arrived to Terceira Island early in the morning and I got to the hotel at breakfast time, well before check in time. I just wanted to leave my luggage but the very attentive staff told me that they will try to get my room ready while I was invited to have breakfast (which I was not entitled for,... More

our Condor plane had to make an emergency landing on Terceira. Lucky us. We were bused to the Pousada, arriving 11pm. They promptly laid on dinner for all the wary travelers, very good and tasty. The rooms are beautifully equipped and comfortable with a wonderful view of the ocean. Breakfast was self-service and plentiful. The only third world experience was... More

Helpfull staff, nice clean rooms, small but nice pool and a certainly above average restaurant when you want to have dinner. Breakfast: go early since the staff and kitchen is not well prepared to serve many guests at once. Recommendable to friends and family!

The castle is absolutely beautiful, so worn and rugged and it makes for a very romantic date night. The view is gorgeous, perched on top a hill and overlooking the water. We have been to Castellinos twice to eat dinner and both times have been extremely good. The food is a little more "upscale" than other places around the island... More

We spent here a week with our baby daugther, and thoroughly enjoyed the place. It's located in an old fort above the harbor, just outside town. We had a graden room opening to the swimmingpool, which was great. Restaurant is slightly expensive and the dishes are more pretentious than tasty. But there are wonderful alternatives in town. Highly recommended. Book... More
