We were actually staying at nearby apartments and unfortunately we were burgled while we ate at a nearby fish restaurant. We ended up staying at this hotel for the last 2 nights of our holiday as a result. They really looked after us well . I think it is important for me to pass on this information but at the same time I want to make clear to all readers that these islands are really very beautiful and a 'must see'. We had read in various guide books before we arrived that crime was practically unheard of outside Ponta Delgada. This is not the case .
Re the hotel - we were looked after very well, the location was peaceful and breathtaking views over the ocean. There is a good pool, a snack bar open until 6pm for snacks and 7pm for just drinks This hotel looks out over the sea. The bar is open until 11pm or Midnight (I can't remember) serving cocktails and other drinks. Service was good throughout the hotel. Bedrooms fine and clean and quiet.
You can walk down to the local beach which takes 10 mins or to a lovely fish restaurant in Caloura itself which would take 30-45 mins walk depending on your speed.
I would def recommend hiring a car.
This hotel is 20 mins drive from the airport.More
