In Angra do Heroismo, a small town on the south coast of Tereceira (one of the islamds of the Azores), there is a beautiful hotel in a fort. The rooms are very good, mice beds and nicely decorated. The hotel is small but beautiful with a small pool with ocean view. The staff is very friendly.

Inside the walls of the 16th century fort you will find a modern hotel experience. Rooms are spacious with lounge chairs and balconies overlooking the lawn and the beautiful ocean in the distance. I would recommend a second floor room.The restaurant and staff are exceptional and breakfast buffet is included with the room. The wedding reception was in the large... More

This hotel was a pleasant experience! The hotel is quiet and the service is good but the best part was the experience of staying in such a unique and historical building. The building was also so well updated and had such a modern feel while keeping it's historical charm.

My wife & I stayed in this hotel for one week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel accommodation and living areas are mostly modern construction within the ancient fortress walls. The hotel reception staff were efficient, courteous, charming and very helpful. The one evening meal we had there was excellent, if perhaps a little expensive by local standards. The buffet... More

This was my first experience with a pousada and it was definitely a memorable one. It’s a perfect melding of history with modernity. The rooms were very well equipped and spacious, with a television and lounge chairs on the balcony overlooking the yard and ocean. The only drawback was the Wi-Fi didn’t work so well when in the room but... More
