“Excelent staff”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

It's a simple 3star hotel with good location near the center. The breakfast could be better with mote variety of goods. The 5 star goes to the staff. They allowed me to check in very early and offer the breakfast for that day! They are always free to help us even with the odder things! A good exemple of good willing.

It is a 3 star hotel near to everything. About 10 minutes from the airport, just some minutes walking a supermarket, the port and the city center too. It has got private parking place for two euros a day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was absolutely clean, well equiped and comfortable. It was airconditioned, there were SAT tv, balkony, even a bidet in the bathroom. But I missed the refrigerator and the fixed shower was unusual. There is a big pool with sunbeds, the water was clean and about 22-23 degrees which was perfect. There is a gym right next to the pool but the equipment was almost zero. Internet is free, you can find it between the reception and the restaurant. Breakfast was the same everyday which was weak. I missed the vegetables and the fresh fruits but the island is full of pineapple and maracuja. Overall I was satisfied and I recommend this hotel to everyone.

Picked this hotel over the 4* options due to previous reviews and had a great time, The rooms were cleaned every day and everything worked, Staff were very helpful and breakfast buffet was good, although apart from changes in the bread remained the same everyday. Good position but close to airport so some plane noise, pool was small but never more than a few people there. Comments from others on trips/ planes confirmed we made the right decision. Sao Miiguel was a fabulous island to visit.

Recently got back from the Azores. Spent six nights in Hotel VIla Nova on Sao Miguel. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast buffet was plentyful and dinner buffet was varied. If you book in for half board then you get free wine, tea or coffee with your meal. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The pool was clean and tidy. Pool towels available from reception. On edge of town but nice walk in along the prom.

We stayed here one week and have nothing but praise for the hotel, the staff, clean room and good breakfast selections, with plenty of freshly baked bread. The hotel is in the centre of town, very convenient for exploring the town and not far from local buses to explore the rest of the island

Staff was friendly,and very helpful when needed. room was great and loved the idea what a card will do by saving electricty, something the USA needs to do! Breakfast a plus and filling. only wished the pool was heated, and the work out room machines did all not work. but all in all we loved our stay and met our family from Brethana pilard only wish we would have met more..
