Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 25, 2012

We stayed 3 nights at the Vila Nova and would have been happy to spend more time there.
The hotel is very convenient for buses, restaurants and the harbour.The room was comfortable and very quiet. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff throughout the hotel were friendly and efficient. A special mention for Bruno Pacheco on reception who always managed to go "the extra mile" to help overcome any difficulty

We stayed here for 2 weeks this march , the room is a good size and the bed was huge if you go in the summer ask for a room overlooking the street as the rear ones overlook the pool and it can get noisy. My only complaint was the wireless Internet it cut out a lot we had an I pad but if you have a laptop they will provide you with a cable . The hotel is a two minute walk from the avenida which is the main street which runs aline the ocean . I would stay here again no questions asked. We arrived early and were allowed to check in at 8 in the morning

Everything about this hotel was fantastic. The location is very close to the city without being right in it and it is also a 10 min. cab ride from the airport. It was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. We hope to return soon. We also enjoyed the breakfast. It is to bad it was too cool for me to use the pool.

there are so many nice reviews there it is hard to add anything; spent 5 nights in the hotel with my son, and the staff was really very helpful and nice, helped even with odd problems like finding ways for paying the parking fine (was not aware that parking in front of the hotel is not free - after the lesson I parked in the hotel's parking for 2€ per day), and surprised me with stamps for postcards (on saturdays post offices are closed, and it was our last day on Azores). Actually I planned to stay in another hotel close to the University and was redirected to Nova Hotel due to renovations in the hotel owned by the same company. Next time (hopefully already this July) I will gladly return to Nova Hotel ;)

My wife and I spent the last 2 weeks of August and the first 2 weeks in September and we had a great time.We only rented a car one day every week to go site seing to other parts of the island.They have miny buses running every 15 minutes intervals that will take you every where down town including some the Beaches.Affortable eating places everywhere including 5 star.Many whale and Dolphin Watching and Fishing companys available within 10 minute walk of the hotel.The Lagons are so very beautiful,the undisturbed Nature and the highway flowed shoulders and cleanlyness is on itself enough to take a holiday in Sao Miguel. The Hotel Vila Nova was one of the reasons we enjoyed our stay and we will return to it .
We recomemd this Hotel to anyone.....we gived it a 5 star rating.

Room Tip: pool and ocean view with varanda has sun all afternoon city and ocean view with or without varanda...

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.
