Nice hotel located next tot the port of Madalena. The bathroom was pretty nice and the room OK. Swimming pool present bit no means to eat dinner. Small groceries shop 2 min walk away from the hotel. They also have a private parking place for your car. Staff is ok. The bar is pretty boring and the bartender was watching... More

This is a B&B hotel, and you have to find other meals elsewhere in Madalena, and the choice of restaurants is limited. This is purpose built hotel, convenient for Madalena Harbour, which will be very good when the building work is finished! The hotel was clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed a reasonably spacious room with balcony. The room was... More

This hotel is the only large hotel in Madalena. So this hotel has lots of guests as I think mostly everybody stays here. Free wifi at the reception desk. We had the suite for our honeymoon: a very large room with sitting area, large bathroom, nice views on the port. The suite is located at the 3rd floor at the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights while on a walking holiday in te Azores. Although it is quite a modern, ugly building, the rooms are are quite nice with views of the Harbour. The breakfast was good and the reception staff were very friendly. The ferry to Faial is only minuets way.

A large, rather impersonal hotel next to the harbour and main bus stop in Madalena. The rooms are comfortable enough and fairly well-equipped; they have small balconies, though many face other rooms with only an oblique view of the port and the sea. I found the room very humid, more so than the other places I stayed in the Azores,... More

At the time of my visit, new construction work is going on right outside the hotel, to improve the harbour, but, apart from the awkwardness of driving a car into the hotel parking, we hardly noticed the building work at all - a yappy dog in a nearby house was far more penetrating. Very convenient location for the ferry to... More

We stayed here with a little trepidation having reading some reviews, but most were unfounded. The room was very new, spotless, and the views over the harbour were lovely. The breakfast buffet was great, plenty of variety, hot and cold dishes, meats, breads, jams, cereals. the staff were also very helpful. Only downside, which wasn't the hotels fault, is that... More

It was a nice room, clean bathroom, overlooking a part of the harbour. Free Wi-fi in lounge,reception and bar. Breakfast with good choose... More

With current road work outside, it's a bit difficult to find the way to the reception/parking with car. Room is rather OK: big and clean. Sometimes there was some noise from the disco bar/pub nearby in the middle of night, but the sound isolation of the room is quite good because we only heard very very little, but our friend... More
