“great value for the money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

we stayed in Ponta delgada in november 2007. It is a very nice hotel, with spotless rooms, great breakfast, short walk to the citycenter. friendly service, a quiert place in the middle of the city. This area is filled with exiting places to visit, all you have to do is look for them :-)

My fiancé and me stayed at Hotel Ponta Delgada on our 10 day vacation to the Azores and have absolutely no complaints! The rooms were modern and spacious and we had a view of the sea- which was nice as it allowed us to check the sea state before going whale watching or diving every morning! Particularly liked the way the bathroom was separated from the rest of the room with a milk glass divider. Some of the bits and bops in the bathroom did look a little bit on the worn side (side of the bath, toilet seat) but that being said everything was perfectly clean and pleasant.

Breakfast was good but not amazing. Basic choice of several types of cereals, bread and some cooked options as well as two types of juice. The coffee machine did offer a wide variety of coffees but I would have maybe liked to see a few of the very tasty local pastries on offer next to the Madeira cake.

There was free internet in the hotel which was handy to plan our trips around the island, however, it should be pointed out that it was sometimes a little bit tricky to get it to work in the rooms themselves as the signal was quite poor. Although they advertised as having two computers for guests to use, they were broken while we were there. Not a major issue for us as we had our own but something to consider when booking maybe.

There's no restaurant in the hotel as such but the bar does offer some sandwiches and finger food as well as a range of tasty cocktails! You do, however, get a 10% discount at O Baco, the neighbouring restaurant which is perfectly pleasant. It did on occasion take a while to be served at the bar in the hotel but the sandwiches were worth the wait, they were delicious and clearly freshly prepared (we could hear the chicken being fried as we sat and waited). The prices were reasonable and the bartender was very friendly and happy to let us practice our Portugese on him.

We did not spend that much time in the hotel as we mostly went out during the day but were confined to it during one day when a storm hit the island. We used that time to take advantage of the fitness facilities; well at least the swimming pool, sauna and steam room. The swimming pool was a little bit on the cold side for my taste but the overall space was very pleasant and we really enjoyed the sauna! On that day we also discovered the TV in the room actually has quite a few channels that are in English!

Overall a very pleasant experience and highly recommendable!

We stayed in Ponta delgada in September ' 12. The Hotel Ponta Delgada is situted a few streets away from the city center . Rooms are speceful and most of them are facing to the ouside. Staff are also nice and speak fluent english.
Breakfast is basic but good quality products.The hotel has got an indoors swimming pool and a gym with sauna. It also has an internet corner and wi-fi in the lobby.
Tip: If you are planning to rent a car, make sure you reserve a spot in the parking! The parking is big enough but it gets fully booked pretty easily.

Enjoy your stay !
My wife and I will stay there again if we go back to Açores !

Room Tip: Ours was facing to the city and was on a high floor.

I felt a bit sorrowed about a 3*+Hotel in Portugal but this place really makes a difference: the rooms are modern (rennovated maybe 2005), clean and everything works perfect. Compared to The Lince Great (we have been 2011) this is a real gem!

Easy to access from airport, we could park our car in their garage (note only space for 6 cars), our room was on top floor. We used the Sauna and indoor pool and had daily (mediocre) breakfast. Free Wifi! After 4 days we paid - thanks to hrs.de - amazingly 116€ (29€/day)...

Note that the hotel is in Vila Nova, the new town of PD, however it's a short walk to the city center. Parking outside is charged from 8-19 - the incoming airplanes doesn't matter at all (only a few every day)

Room Tip: take high floor

This hotel is well located within walking distance of all the major attractions of Ponta Delgad. It was very good value for the money. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. I was very appreciative of the fact that after a overnight flight and arriving very early at the hotel, I was allowed to check in early without any extra fees. The pool, sauna and gym were well maintained and clean. It is very easy to recommend this hotel during your visit to the Azores.

We needed a place to stay on a 3 night trip to São Miguel.
Was a pleasure to stay here. Staff is friendly, location is 8 mn walk to city center, rooms are renewed and spotlessly clean, with toillet amenities and hair dryer. Breakfast very tasty and plentiful.
The pool, jaccuzzy sauna were a bonus at end of day.
A very good surprise for the price, real good value.

Room Tip: Ask for top levels to have a great vue to the city
