We stayed at the Barracuda in July. I can well recommend it, even though it has reached the stage where a small refit is on the cards. It has 21 rooms on 3 floors with the middle floor being ground level out onto the road. It is not fancy like some big hotels, but it makes up for this with... More

This hotel was genuinely brilliant, more so when the price is considered. The location was wonderful, within easy (taxi/driving) reach of both Vila Franca Do Campo which is a real hidden gem and Portas Do Mar. The hotel was Lovely. The views were amazing and it was so clean. Like really...how they keep a hotel so close to the beach... More

We stayed for a week during Feb 2016 to enjoy a walking holiday. We read previous reviews and decided as we would be out during the day the hotel was good enough for our needs and were not disappointed. The uninterrupted sea view is spectacular and I'd guess you would struggle to find better. There is direct access to the... More

Spent some lovely days at the Barracuda at the start of January 2016. The view is the primary reason we chose to stay -it is spectacular and if a sea view lifts your soul ....this is the place for you. The lovely Bruno who helped us during our stay is a most professional and pleasant chap and the breakfast is... More

I spent 20 days. It is a place recommended for sporty, casual people, not for those seeking luxury. The strong points are: - right on the Praia Milicias, and 2 other beaches, very quiet although on the street. You only hear the waves! - access to Ponta Delgada (50 min walk, 5 min by car, 10 min by bus -... More

Our arrival and reception was welcoming and, without exception, all the staff were friendly and mainly spoke English. We looked at other reviews and asked for – and got – a room on the main floor (2nd), No. 304. Well, whatever this hotel lacks in polish it was certainly more than offset by the spectacular view from the veranda and... More

The Hotel is perfectly located in front of the beach of "Praia das Milicias / Populo". Apartments are big, with two beds, a living/dinning room and kitchenette. The balcony has a fantastic view of the beach. The staff is very kind and helpful.

This is a decent, basic hotel which is clean, well-appointed with no frills. I've now stayed here 3 times over a period of the last few years. The rooms are always spacious, with a nice balcony and seaview. If you're looking for somewhere for excellent value, but not expecting the Ritz, and near to Ponta Delgada then I'd wholeheartedly recommend... More

We were fortunate to get this undervalued hotel. The room has a small kitchen just enough space with minimal kitchen utilities plus a balcony with great sea views. Equipment is of the old type, but the beds were comfortable to sleep in, although somewhat harsh in the mattress . The pillows were also special, small elongated, but they went to... More

The best thing about the hotel, the location right on the beach and a very large balcony overlooking the ocean. No others, even the most expensive hotels in Ponta Delgada, this does not offer! Hotel rooms are large, but in need of repair, and complete replacement of furniture. Internet in the lobby and free parking.
