The hotel is old but they are renovating. The rooms are big with a balcony and a very large bathroom. The breakfast is good. The staff are amazing. The are very kind and helpful. For a 3 star hotel they provide a swiming pool, ginasio. You should try the restaurant (Hotel Cafe). The food is amazing. Talk to Marcio, the... More

July 2016 showed no sign of renovation mentioned September 2015. Very disappointing, basic accommodation. Uncomfortable sleeping on a plastic covered mattress and the single pillow was filled with small bits of lumpy foam. Breakfast was unimaginative (tinned peaches for fruit) and the restaurant next door which you pay for separately was disappointing. Wifi in reception and lounge only. Recommended local... More

This hotel was far below expectations. It is very basic : rooms need refurbishing and renewal of the matresses, breakfast offers only bread, cheese and ham, wifi only in the lobby not in the rooms. For bar and resto you need to go next door and also that is basic. The view from the rooms is great and the personel... More

At first this hotel looks quite good. It has probably once been great, with a fantastic location above the open sea. But the beds were stone hard, lamps didn't allow reading in bed, the breakfast was poor and there was a mood of sad neglect. It wasn't expensive, and there is limited competition on this island, but still...

I don't like to write negative reviews but I wouldn't recommend people to stay here. It would be ok for a 2 star hotel if the place at least would be clean, but our bath room smelled quiet bad and later on I noticed they didn't even clean it. Dirty spots everywhere, towels didn't smell too fresh,... and we never... More

With only 3 hotels on the tiny Island and this a two star hotel (only one bookable left) i was prepared for the worst! Luckily it wasn't that bad! I think it can only get 2 stars since everything is very old and tired (furniture) and needs an urgent update. The whole atmosphere, also the Island itself, feels like we... More

We think the owner has lost interest and should really pass it on to his family, the views are stuuning, the room was adequate but very dark and needed updating urgently. there is one person who seems to do everything, taxi, reception, kitchen and if necessary the rooms. it is all very tired. The restaurant next door is quite good... More

We stayed in 7 hotels during our recent trip to the Azores and this was by far the worst and below the standard that we had expected even after reading the reviews on Trip-advisor. We arrived after a somewhat eventful flight at this Hotel - one day late thank goodness as our trip the previous day had been cancelled due... More

We stayed in Hotel Ocidental for one week. The hotel is in bad shape; walls burst, the elevator doesn't work and the swimmingpool has no water since years. The rooms are fine, just as the location, but the shape of the hotel is poor! The breakfast is very simple (bread, cheese, ham and honey) and every day the same. Even... More

This place has seen better days and was awfully run down. It was damp, cold and unwelcoming. We regrettably had to leave.
