Overall: 3 STAR

Marina Atlantico is located right near the Ponta Delgada town center. The staff is nice and helpful. They provide much useful information about Sao Miguel and the Azores. The breakfast at the hotel is pretty good. The gym and pool area are huge.

The rooms are small and uncomfortable temperature. We visited in May and they still had not turned the AC on in the building. In fact, heat was coming out of the vents when we tried to turn the air on. They told us that they had not yet turned the AC in the building on therefore they could not cool our room. The bathrooms are even smaller and the shower curtains leek water when you shower. The walls are too thin so much of the outside noise makes it difficult to sleep at night.

Overall, I had an okay stay Marina Atlantico's. I liked the guest service and location, but was not a fan of the rooms. I hope they improve the AC situation, noise problem, and bathrooms.

Very nice hotel with a great ocean view. The staff was very friendly and it was very clean. Great location with plenty of access to many fine restaurants. There were many attractions including a lot of churches which were all within walking distance.
Across the way close to the hotel were many very nice restaurants which were excellent. I found that the food was reasonable and the local wine was very good!

Room Tip: Water view is very nice!

April 2014. We stayed one week at the 3rd floor and our room was facing to the ocean. Volcano Água de Pau is seen far away in the left. And bonus view u can/might see the huge caribbean cruisers and other big ships docking usually at the morning. Little noises from the main boulevard was heard, mainly traffic and music from some bars at night, but it wasnt disturbing. We didnt spend much time at the hotel. Hotel was very clean. Cleaning personnel were good, they cleaned our room once a day and at one night we came back to our room they had folded my gf's night clothes in nice flower shaped form in the bed! That was very nice surprice! Breakfast was buffet style, including local cheeses and bread. That filled our stomaches for the next 5-6 hours. No hurry and always place to eat. Only minus was that the used tableware was collected away in a real hurry! Same notes concerned dinner. Reception personnel were polite, professional and they spoke good english. There was a free wifi, got 2 vouchers from the reception, it was fast enough to send emails and reading news but too slow to upload our daily stack of pictures and videos and the network crashed daily...
Connections to the city by foot were great, cos u are already there, nearest mall 3 minutes and the 2 others bout 25 mins (by car 5 mins) and the airport 10mins (by car).

The hotel has been renovated and everything is kept nice and clean. The staff is pleasant and will meet your requests.
Minor downsides are the lack of water drainage in the bathroom which results in a pool of water if you are not observant when taking a shower, and the somewhat hard beds. A room with a good view and AC, combined with good maintenance. ☺ Wifi is charged for but if you are obervant you will find a 7 day free voucher with your room key.
The hotel has a major problem with the restaurant though. The breakfast buffet is good, no problem there, but when it comes to real cooked food it's a disasterous scene. It's overcooked, stale, and tasteless. We tried the dinner buffet since it was a part of our premium package. In all honesty this is probably the worst food I've had in my entire life, and I am not exaggerating. Needless to say we did not return to try their a la carte which was also offered. Apart from this major disappointment the hotel can be recommended to stay at. Simply have your dinner elsewhere.

A modern hotel with average size rooms and toiletries and minibar.
Located at the end of the promonade about a 10 min.walk from the "Portas da Cidade" and right across the marina
Breakfast was very good with local specialties, but at times very busy and difficult to find a table.
If you are looking for a boutique hotel this is not it, but if you want something clean, in town and about a 10 min drive to the airport this is a good choice.
Didn't have dinner at the hotel, but there are plenty of restaurants (even a Burger King) right across the street at the "Portas do Mar".

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking the marina and harbour.
