My friends and I enjoyed a three night stay at Terra Nostra Garden Hotel. It was a lovely hotel; very clean and the staff were extraordinarily attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience in the hotel restaurant. We ordered the chef's "discovery menu" and were pleasantly surprised by each of the five courses and wine pairings. We would return in...

Stayed at the Terra Nostra Garden for two nights and was extremely disappointed with this top rated hotel. The garden is beautiful but the staff are not very helpful. An interaction with rude guest was treated as a common occurrence by the desk staff and was never addressed when I inquired at a later point. Found the room to be...

We stayed for six nights at the Terra Rostra Garden Hotel. Maybe we built it up too much because of the glowing reviews but we found this hotel just average. Our overall impression was one of aloofness. Make no mistake...there was no Lumiere singing "Be our Guest." It's not that we all need a coffee station in our hotels but...

Loved the atmosphere of the 30's, specially at the breakfast room with a view to the garden . Very nice staff, kind and friendly to my kid. The garden is absolutely lovely and pleasant, the warm water pool is a must, helps to stay in the hotel :)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Today, the Azores Islands can relish in the grand re-opening of their most famous hotel, newly renovated. Terra Nostra Garden Hotel reopens to the public after extensive renovations reclassified as a 4-star property, positioning itself as one of the top hotels in Portugal. Located in Furnas Valley, on S. Miguel Island, Terra Nostra Garden Hotel is nestled in one of the World's best "Green Retreats," as deemed by Conde Nast Traveler - the 18th century Terra Nostra Garden exudes a breathtaking atmosphere of exoticism and mysticism in perfect harmony with nature. Opened since 1935, a time when the Azores Islands entered the international travel circuit for those seeking unique experiences, Terra Nostra Garden Hotel reopens with the same charming aura and exclusivity of the past, bringing you 86 rooms split between two buildings, maintaining its architectural history: the Art Deco Wing, built in the 1930's and the Garden Wing, added in the 1990's. The hotel's interior design concept stems from the Art Deco style, and introduces contemporary elements and materials, creating comfort and exclusivity perfectly integrated with the lush Terra Nostra Garden. The new Wellness areas are available and improved upon, making this hotel the perfect spotyou're your special events, taking into consideration the tremendous potential of Furnas Valley with theme-oriented activities, as a retreat getaway and so much more. In addition to the renovation, Terra Nostra Garden Hotel highlights Azorean products, focuses on the Furnas Cozido experience (a sustainable meal fully cooked underground with the heat of the volcanic hot springs) and the importance of protecting Furnas's unique environmental resources. The new Terra Nostra Restaurant offers a vast array of wine choices and delectable menu, up to par with the expectations of any wine connoisseur or avid foodie, who will appreciate the impeccable service and ambiance this restaurant has always had. Come stay with us at Terra Nostra Garden Hotel and you will have an unforgettable wellness experience, leaving you with memories to last a lifetime. ... more   less
