“Excellent Weeks Stay at Hotel Vila Nova”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We stayed for 7days at the Vila Nova as part of a Sunvil package. Excellent hotel, a few minutes walk away from the town centre but therefore quieter. Friendly and helpful hotel staff. Breakfast buffet wide choice. Bar snacks excellent value. Evening buffet as much as anyone can eat (and drink) for 20 Euros. Bedrooms quiet and spacious. Close to airport flight-path but plane arrivals/departures so rare as to make the overflight an interesting event. Has its own car park if you hire a car for your stay. I highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Rooms on front of hotel look over a road which is quiet. Views of port. Sun in the morning Rooms at...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We stayed a total of four nights at this hotel and found it to be quite enjoyable. The location is just outside the hustle and bustle which gave us a nice walk along the water to get in and out of the center of the city. We like walking back to the hotel after dinner and taking in the night sky.
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was relaxing and clean. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. There is free internet acess in the lobby so you don't have to worry about spotty wi-fi if for some reason you need to get online. We enjoyed the pool facing rooms rather than the street facing. Good breakfast with more variety than other spots we experienced.

The only thing that was less than steller is that you are situated in the flight pattern for the airport and the planes are quite loud on arrival. I seem to remember first flight at 8am and last one done by 10pm.

Room Tip: We liked the pool facing room rather than the street room.

We stayed in the hotel for two nights.the hotel is near the port and old town. Good location!the room is very clean and quite spacious.breakfast is good.
The only point I didn't like was the wireless connection. We stayed on the 1st floor, and the wireless is quite unstable, I hardly could go to Internet.

Good Middleclass Hotel in Center! From the hotel, it was just a 5 Minutes walk to the Center and Harbour Area, whatwas very interesting - epecially in the early morning hours, whrn the fish boats came from the sea. Hotel is not very large and it was very calm there. Friendly Staff at the Reception and a good Breakfast buffet. small Swimmingpool in the small Garden and also this was very clean!

Vila Nova is a reasonably new hotel located in center of Ponta Delgada near Campo San Fransisco (local gathering place at night) and fort. Rooms are good size and clean but TV is outdated. More modern TV is located in the lobby. Customer service is good. Hotel has a small pool, bar & games room. Breakfast could be better; it's pretty basic and items don't change. Walk to center of town and marina is about 15 min. Fransisco Borges park & Parque Atlantic shopping mall are in walking distance.

A good standard hotel with very friendly helpful staff, roomy bedrooms with balconies and good levels of service. Close to the airport and planes fly very close overhead but no night noise and really quite interesting! Well placed for 10 minute walk to town centre and local buses. Mini supermarket just around the corner Only complaint is football on screens in the lounge and the bar all the time. Great for supporters but less good if you want a quiet chat with no distractions!

We stayed in this hotel with my family in Julе.
The hotel has a very good location near the city center and the waterfront, next to the castle. The location is very convenient for exploring the city and: visit the cafe. Very near a bus stop, where you can go cheap on the island. A five minute walk car rental. Rent a car for a day and look the main attractions.
We booked a double room with an extra bed for my son. The hotel gave us a triple room with three large beds. The room also had a table with two chairs, desk, TV, safe (the key to the safe should be available at reception), fridge. The room had a balcony with a partial sea view. On the balcony table and three chairs. So nice to have coffee in the evening and watch the sunset.
The bathroom was a bathroom. The bathroom had a hair dryer and cosmetics set (shower gel, shampoo, soap, shower cap).
Room is a bit dated, and need of repair.
The hotel has a pool. Pool towels you can take on reception.
Next to the pool there is a hall with gym.
Near the pool your can order drink ore snack fram the hotel's cafe. We had lunch near the pool. Very cheap and tasty food, quick and friendly service.
Breakfast at the hotel is very good for the three stars. Good selection of hot and cold dishes. Very delicious jams and fresh hot pastries.
The only negative - on the breakfast a lot of people and it's hard to find a free table.
The hotel has a cheap parking, but sometimes there are no free seats. Book in advance. But your can*t order the hotel*s parking before coming to the hotel. Next to the hotel is the city parking space, but more expensive. On weekends, public parking is free.
Overall, we loved the hotel, especially for the price - 70 euros for three with breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view and balcony (not all rooms have a balcony)
