The good things about this hotel are the location and the bed. Anything else is just not good. Staff does not make you feel very welcome. They dont say a word when you pass by in the lobby. In the hotel website it is said that every room has airconditioning. But it is very old and not working. We Asked...

+ Basic 3 Star Hotel. As you might expect, they provide the required level, but do not excel at anything. Location is good, beach directly in front of the hotel, marina next to it, and whale watching/ snorkeling tours start from there. - Floor in the room could be better swept, given hotel is right at the beach sand will...

This hotel has very strategic position - not far from the airport, in the middle of the island. Good place for the boat trips - many ships with whale cruises are starting here. Room was clean, staff helpful (we arrived late in the evening, demanded double-bed - they improvized to help us with it).

The hotel is very well locates to dive. The rooms are very quiet, and you get all comfort you need. Nothing more. Breakfast is ok, but could definitely be more appealing. The people at the reception could be more friendly and willing to share and communicate. You need a car if you are there.

Our trip was primarily to go diving and the hotel was arranged by the dive company . The staff were very friendly and helpful. On our non diving day they helped us book a taxi to Furnas to go in the hot springs and eat the local dishes cooked in the hot volcanic waters. Brilliant , and much cheaper and...

Easily my worst hotel experience. Alright, so where do we start? The postitives: there is a nice beach very close. This is pretty much the only hotel in town. The scrabled eggs in the morning were fine. So now the negatives: 1) The hotel entrance is impossible to find. When you walk around long enough and get in, the staff...

From Ponta Delgada airport we took a taxi who drove as if he was racing in the Indie 500. Even though he sped to our hotel it took nearly half hour and he asked for €28 since the taxi isn't metered it might be wise to get a price for destination prior to getting in. We found out later that...

We had a very pleasant stay at Marina hotel. It's a very nice and clean hotel. The location is perfect to discover Sao Miguel (30 minutes to Ponta Delgada by car) and the beach is just next to you. Restaurants are also nearby. Friendly staff.
