Very good hotel, staff and food. Very clean and spacious rooms. Great views of the water and sunset. Hotel is not in the city, and nothing near the city. The staff, however, arranged for the taxi, whenever needed. They did have once a day free transport to Ponta Delgada city. Bus leaves at 10:30 and brings you back at 4:00....

Nice hotel undergoing renovations. A little far from Ponta Delgada but free shuttle daily. Food was not great other than breakfast which was included. If you want to see the sights we highly recommend Robert who will stop at all those hidden gems on the island. Take a cab to and from the airport, it is less expensive, around 25€...

Positives: Although its huge area, this is a very quiet hotel (winter season). The breakfast is good with many local products and on-site egg/pancake cook. The staff is great, very kind and helpful (towels and amenities supply right away). The room is very big (senior suite) with a stunning view of the sea and also the wave sounds by night...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set on São Miguel Island, with direct access to the beach "Baia de Água d'Alto" and with clear panoramic view to the Atlantic Ocean, you can find here the harmony and peace that you need for your holidays. São Miguel is the largest island of the archipelago, where more than half of the island's population lives at. Together with Santa Maria Island, São Miguel forms the Eastern Group of the Azores Archipelago. Whether for its proximity to the ocean, as well as for its large outdoor freshwater swimming pool. Every single area of this 4-star hotel was exhaustively planned in order to ensure the communion between elegance and good taste with the environment. The rooms have a balcony and a panoramic view over the ocean, along with the hills. Save some time to admire the exquisiteness that surrounds you. All the spaces were carefully planned in order to make good taste and elegance prevail in a classic and refined atmosphere, in synchrony with the surrounding beauty. This is a resort with a strong affinity to water. This Hotel has at your will a wide range of facilities that include Junior and Senior Suites, restaurants, bars, swimming pool, conference rooms, games rooms, library and reading room, saunas, gym, gardens and areas reserved for banquets, marriages and baptisms. ... more   less
