“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

If you don't mind walking, this is a good value hotel. It's clean and staff is courteous. It's about a 10 minute walk to the center of town (downhill), it's the walk home that might be a bit tiring as it's uphill but, taxi's are available if you are tired and don't want to walk back. The breakfast was good, many choices. There is parking on premises. I would use this hotel again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We stayed here from Oct 9-15,2013 The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the marina and most restaurants. We stayed in room 208, which was certainly large enough with a good sized bathroom and adequate storage. The staff at the check in were friendly & helpful, particularily Luis ,Maria & Karla. They helped us plan our dinners out & arranged for our car rental. We were able to leave the car in the secure parking area under the hotel at no additional cost. The included breakfast was one of the best we have experienced in a hotel as part of the rate. There is only free Wi-Fi in the hotel lobby. As to the beds, mine was as soft as I am used at home. Yes the pillows were a little lumpy certainly not like golf balls, I slept just fine. Our room was cleaned by mid morning, our maid did an excellent job. Yes there is a door stop beside the shower, once you have stepped on it you will avoid it next time. I have stayed in major brand name hotel rooms in the USA not up to this standard. All in all a great stay.

We stayed here for 5 nights. It was a very quick check in with not very friendly reception staff. When we got to the room and had a look around we saw the pillows, they looked like a pillowcase full of golf balls so I went to reception with them the receptionist knew straight away what I was going to say. He did go and get 2 new pillows for me which were good memory foams ones which I think the old ones were before they had broken up into golf balls size pieces, why can the housekeeper not see this when cleaning the bed? The bed base was stained and in the bathroom there was a small screw sticking out of the floor were I think would have been a door stop on it once upon a time, you had to remember it was there when you stepped out of the bath. We worst thing we saw while staying there was the fire escape which was blocked with tables and chairs. Very poor safety indeed. The only good thing was the breakfast. We would not return.

We spend there a nice Vacation Week and can recommend this good middle Class Hotel to others. When we made booking, we did not expect anything special, but during the time in the Hotel, we really saw, that they doing there a very friendly Service to the Guests. also the Food - Breakfast Buffet and Dinner - was fresh and nice decorated. We had a Standard Room and we found that it was in a good average and top clean.

Pleasant Hotel in Ponta Delgada, with a very friendly Service Staff there. As our Friends have been there already last Year, we followed their Advice and went also there. Friendly Check In and they also speak good english there.
The very good thing there was the Breakfast Choices and especially the good Coffee. Friendly Staff there too. Also we have to say, that there was a nice and friendly Atmosphere and we could relax good. Ponta Delgade Center is 10 Minute away.

The hotel is fine although I expected more. The beds are really uncomfortable and old. The air condition does not work properly, never goes below 25 C. It looks like the hotel has had better days in the past. It needs some renovation in order to continue. I was pleased by the breakfast. I find it OK for 4 star hotel. All in all try another hotel if you want really perfect stay.

Room Tip: Visit the evening buffet on Sunday eve.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Our family of 4 stayed at this hotel June 2013 for two weeks. The beds were so uncomfortable we had to ask for extra blankets to place under the sheets. Towels in the bathroom were not taken unless left on the floor, the breakfast was the usual cold cuts blend coffee and stale bread from the days before. The hotel pool was dirty and some of their machines in the work out room weren't working. When we asked for some assistance they would say they would get the appropriate staff to help but noone never came. We ended up moving hotels after the first few days to Sao miguel park hotel . The staff weren't accomendating or polite, just cold and didnt care. Close to city and restaurants great location..The salmons Family.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher levels are less noise.
