“An unexpected gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

We hadn't planned to stop in the Azores, but were treated to a night in the Hotel Açores Atlantico by our travel company when our plans changed suddenly. What a wonderful find! The hotel is right on the waterfront in Ponta Delgada, the main city of São Miguel island. Although Portuguese is the primary language, enough foreigners visit that there was always someone at the reception desk who spoke English. Our room was large and airy, with a balcony overlooking the harbor. Accessing WiFi in the room cost an extra 20 euros for three days, but an immense and delicious buffet breakfast was included in the room rate. (Don't miss the fresh fruit, especially the pineapple grown in the Azores.) The hotel arranged a tour for us and some friends with a knowledgeable and fluent guide to the northern end of São Miguel -- gorgeous scenery! We stayed for three nights and had a great time. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Get a room high enough on the ocean side that you can watch cruise ships, fishing boats, and sailboa...

The location and the hotel was nice, but I think they should make a renovation of the rooms, because they are a little bit old.

Rooms a little bit tired. Most variety of breakfast items of all the places we stayed in the islands. No wifi (or at least free wifi) --- But you could use one of two comptuers in the lobby for free.

We stayed at this hotel for 14 days. The location of the hotel in Ponta Delgarda is perfect - just next to the marina, and very close to the town center, tourist bureau, bus stops, whale watching office, parks, mall etc. which is very convenient.
Our room was on the top floor (6th), which means we had a wonderful view of the Atlantic ocean. The cleaning staff were friendly and serviceminded, and did a really good job cleaning our room!!
This hotel is rated as a 4 stars hotel. However, it was build in the 80'ies and needs a makeover if you ask me. The international breakfast is avarage compared to other places I've visited... is missing the 'touch' of a cook, and was a little disapointing.
Free internet is normally associated with a 4 star hotel, but here the price is EUR 5 for 30 min!! There is no minibar in the room. However, there is a safe and an empty fridge which can surpricingly be used againt the fee of EUR 5 pr week pr item!! The initial fee for using room service is EUR 3 - each time!
All in all this is an OK hotel to stay at. However, I would not expect this hotel to be equal to a 4 star hotel like in Asia or western Europe. Having stayed at quite an amount of hotels around the world, I would rate Hotel Acores Atlantico no higher than 3 stars.
If you book at this hotel, make sure to get a room facing the marina. (This is the only reason why I would recommend this hotel, compared to some of the other accommedation choises in town)

Had requested room on lower floor - was given one of the fifth floor. Bathtub dirty, as if someone had washed feet and not rinsed off afterwards. Old, dried dog-poo on balcony; found when moving table towards left wall - stepped in it (nice,eh). Lots of noise from early morning (7 am and earlier) until late in the afternoon - 5-6 pm. (Noise from paving being laid as well as noise from pneumatic drill).

No where to hang towels, the hooks were missing in bathroom.

Complaints to management/reception re. the dog poo went unnoticed (the receptionist shrugged his shoulders, that was it), the cleaners only came when we cornered them in the hallway one day.

Also, they charged Euro 9 for one hours use of computer - the local Sol Mar Centers computer corner charged only Euro 2 for one hour !

  • Liked — Can't think of one except the balcony
  • Disliked — Everything

I stayed here as part of a package tour.
Location; Great, at the sea front, 2 minutes walk to shopping and restaurants, but Ponta Delgada is not a big city so most hotels are close to or in city center. Right across the street is the town's pool area, an entrance fee is required.
When I stayed here the harbour was a big building project so it was very much noise, but it looked like it will be nice when finished.
Rooms: average, most of them have a balcony.
Breakfast; 4 points! I much liked the fresh fruit salad every morning.
Indoor pool and exercise area exists but signs said you had to wear a cap to swim so I did not.
I missed an outdoor area to sit in the shadow and read a book but my balcony was just fine when I wanted some sun in the afternoon.
I did not need any help from staff, I only saw them do their job properly.
( Tip: there is a new seaside walk eastwards, when I was there it was built half the way to the beach 4 or 5 km east of Ponta Delgada, so I walked to and from the swim there.)

  • Liked — Location
  • Disliked — Outdoor area or lack of.... A few benches in the shadow outside the exercise area could have been useful
