Went to the restaurant with a group of 13-14 people. We had to wait two hours for the food. The waiters gave one of us a dish that wasn't ordered and one of us just couldn't eat her pasta because it was over-cooked so much it fell apart. Some of the dishes served were quite OK (squids and pizza), but... More

This has a beautiful setting in one of the forts around the town of Angra. However it rather rests on the laurels of its location. Despite asking for a double bed when we booked, we were given two singles. Nothing annoys me more than hotels not responding ahead of time if they can't meet requests made in advance. When I...

We stayed here for 5 nights end July. Hotel is quite modern, in a great location for visiting Angra..All the rooms in the main hotel have a good view out to the coast, and are very quiet, so we had a good nights sleep. We have stayed in other Pousada hotels and they all seem to operate with minimum staff... More

The hotel is as amazing as it staff. I emphasize the staff because they are all as spectacular and unforgettable as this unique hotel is. My wife, myself and 30 other friends and family stayed at the Pousada were they also hosted our wedding reception. We all left with nothing but wonderful things to say about the hotel. Heck! The...

the entire staff, from Flavio and Fernanda to even people whose name I did not get, were as classy and helpful as any place I have stayed. A large breakfast, a nice (hilly) walk to town. The rooms were clean. nice courtyard. The pool was a bit too cool for us, but some brave lady jumped in every a.m. And... More

Lovely spacious room on top floor with balcony and great views over the bay. Aircon worked really well & bed was very comfy. Huge bathroom. No wifi in room was a downside though. Breakfast selection was typical good Azorean mix, although there was a huge range of sweet cakes every morning. Some were more like desserts, but there's nothing wrong... More

This is a rather unique hotel. It is built into an old fort overlooking town and is built in a very unique, "arty" way that is quite interesting. The rooms are pleasant and modern, and our bed was incredibly comfortable. That, together with heavy drapes, made for a very peaceful sleep. The staff is very friendly and helpful (actually everyone... More
