“Private beach? Yes, indeed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great beachfront hotel. Unpretentious, simple and cousy. In need of some refurbishing, yes, but I give it a '4' due to its location, breakfast quality, variety, as well as overall friendliness of staff. (though the bellboy looks like a 'zombie' half the time. Nevertheless, he gets the job done!!:P) Not only can you go for a swim first thing in the morning (or afternoon,or..anytime!!?) but you can also go for a run by the beach: there's a pier and, if you are an experient runner, try the steep road to the castle, it's lovely.

Terceira is a lovely Island, even though its Turism industry is not very well developed..I suggest going to 'Biscoitos', a small natural pool resort in the North. You won't regret it. Try the pastry by the pools, going down the road to your right, second stall I believe. Very nice lady and husband selling brilliant milk 'queijadas' and beans 'queijadas'. If you see a big pot, it's corn on a cob! (a 'must have' for me)

Room Tip: all rooms are very quiet, but obviously I'd choose a room with an ocean view if you reserve earl...

This beachfront hotel lives up to its 4 star status. Pleasant modern rooms including a mini-fridge and kettle, clean bathrooms, a great breakfast -- all is as it should be. The location is great for exploring Angra do Heroismo on foot, though difficult to reach by car (streets are narrow and many are one-way). However, be warned, on Saturday, the hotel was very smoky due to the bar downstairs...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had a couple of rooms at the Beira Mar for three days in November, 2012, arriving in a storm and then enjoying fine weather for the rest of our stay. The hotel's location is exceptional and the staff, rooms and breakfast all contributed to making our time there very agreeable. Even parking was no problem as we found a space outside the hotel every night.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms have a sea view.

we stayed there for a couple of days at the beginning of October, staff friendly room clean but a little basic, the views were stunning, breakfast was good for Azorian Hotels, dinner very good and fairly priced, we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a refridgerator [ours didn't]

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

the major advantage of this hotel is its position: straight in front of the beach of Angra, few steps from the marina, our room had a beautiful view to the sea and we really liked it. The room was essential, clean but a bit small. There was free internet connection and the breakfast was quite good. We also had dinner at the restaurant: the food was good, but the service was horrible. We were sitting outside and we had to wait for an incredible amount of time to get served, despite we called and complained more than once.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea view, it's obligatory in a place like this!!!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

not shmancy, but clean and spacious room/balcony facing the bay from which i could hear the waves :) room is simple yet has character. unlike other hotels, nice flatscreen tv/cable and in-room wifi worked very well. i'm a very light sleeper and didn't have any noise issues.

room for improvement: one female staff was super-friendly/helpful, the others more business-like. would have to say that i didn't like the restaurant's food or service.

but overall, compared to the 2 other azorean hotels at which i stayed (angra garden and vila nova on sao miguel), this was the best value and therefore the best :)

Room Tip: facing the sea, ask to preview if you can

I have been for business in this hotel in an room the second floor, last May.
The personal was reserveid and cordial; the restoraunt was good.
The room was clean but a few optional. The cost was not high!
I recommend this Hotel to all tourists!
