Travelers' Choice
Welcome to a small, 4-bedroomed, British owner-run 'boutique hotel' in the popular, picturesque fishing hamlet of Caloura. It's ideally situated, half-way along the south coast, 15 minutes from the capital and 20 minutes from the airport. Relax on the terrace, overlooking the pool with the sea beyond, enjoying a carefully prepared hot breakfast. The informality of a private villa, the comforts of a luxury hotel.

We stayed for a week in July and the Quinta do Mar is a perfect location. Nick, Chris and Valeria are great hosts, looking after and anticipating our every need without being at all intrusive. Breakfast on the terrace is a real highlight and is freshly prepared by Chris. There are only a small number of rooms and lots of outside space to make use of so it really does feel like your own villa with the convenience of a hotel. The guest terrace is a great place to relax and meet other guests with a drink from the honesty bar. The location is perfect for exploring the island which is stunning. Flowers everywhere all over the island when we stayed. A car is probably essential if you want to explore. We were there for the weekend of the Caloura Blues music festival. This is held just down the road and we would thoroughly recommend it. Great value, music and a fantastic way to spend a summer's evening. We can't wait to go back again.

My husband and I stayed at Quinta do Mar for a few days while we explored Sao Miguel, as part of a multi-island trip. We could not recommend it more highly - Nick and Chris and Valeria were wonderful hosts, and the breakfast spread was fantastic. At nighttime, my husband and I would go up to the roof area where there are some deck chairs, and just look at the moon, stars, and ocean while listening to the Cory's Shearwater bird calls (which are really quite funny). Bar Caloura is just a few minutes' walk away. We would definitely stay here again!

This hotel is a very restful accommodation with wonderful ocean view. It is about 15-20 minutes from Ponte Delgado. The room was spacious, modern and comfortable. Breakfast was very good. The best part of our stay though was the hosts Nick and Chris, who gave us good advise and good conversation. We got the recommendation from my daughter who stayed there on her honeymoon and will would recommend this to our friends and family. Although she stayed here without a car, I would recommend having a car as the best parts of Sao Miguel are scattered over the island.

The Quinta do Mar is incredible. Nothing was too much trouble for Chris, Nick and Valeria, they are really lovely people who welcomed us so warmly. Breakfasts here are superb, every day was something new and we found ourselves excited every morning. The location is a perfect balance of seclusion and tranquility, whilst being close enough to everything we needed. For us the small number of rooms was perfect, nowhere was crowded and we usually had the pool to ourselves. We would strongly recommend dinner at Bar Caloura at least once during your stay, it's only a 5 minute stroll back up to the hotel for a late night drink on the terrace or (if you're feeling as brave as we did) a midnight swim! We very much hope to visit this incredible place again very soon and would have no hesitation recommending it to anyone.

This is a very special place. We can honestly say we came away feeling a lot better than when we arrived. Nick, Chris and Valeria have an unique way of making you feel at home. They give you all the little tips on where to go, see and eat. Bar Caloura for the most amazing seafood and the kiosk for a perfect sunset view and drink are a must. We are so glad we stayed the whole week as there is nowhere else on the island we would rather stay. Amazing breakfasts every morning. The honestly bar and homemade cake make it feel like home from home. Their tagline does exactly what it says! Thank you.
