We have just returned from a three week trip to the Azores and Lisbon. For the first week we stayed at Chris and Nick's. There is almost little to add to what a previous traveller has written - "Nick and Chris have got this exactly right". Spot on. The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean, the breakfasts are superb...

This place is truly lovely, Nick, Chris and Gilda make the perfect hosts. We were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived until we left and three nights just wasn't enough. The location is peaceful and within walking distance of the pretty harbour of Caloura where you will find the most amazing fish restaurant. The rooms are...

We stayed at the Quinta do Mar for the first week of June 2014. We loved it. Its central location makes it the ideal hotel from which to explore the whole of St Miguel and the accommodation is excellent. Chris, Nick and Gilda can't do enough for you, the breakfast is wonderful, and the bedrooms are very comfortable. (If you...

Nick and Chris have got this exactly right. We felt very much at home from the moment we arrived, and loved the guest pavilion with its honesty bar and coffee machine, which allowed us to come and go as we pleased and chat to other guests and our hosts about the day's adventures.

My wife and I are budget travelers, but we had to try Quinta Do Mar just once! We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. Nick and Chris are the perfect hosts, and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. I say they went out of their way, but they made it seem effortless and a pleasure to...

The only thing my boyfriend and I regret about staying here was that it was only for 1 night. Beautiful setting with fantastic hosts! They gave us great suggestions for things to do and places to eat with the limited time we had and were a lot of fun to just sit and chat with. The rooms were very comfortable...

During our visit to Sao Miguel we stayed in a couple of standard **** hotels. After these stays we went to Quinta do Mar for the last period of the visit. This showed up to be highly recommendable. The room was in excellent condition with a beautiful view of the Atlantic. The common areas was of even better quality with...

The Quinta Do Mar B&B in the coastal town of Caloura is a fantastic small scale Azores boutique hotel. Entrepreneurs Nick Heathcote and Chris envisioned a full-service, luxury retreat with the added benefits of a B&B when embarking on this project. Keeping in line with their service-first policy, there are just 4 rooms in this establishment. The spacious rooms have...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to a small, 4-bedroomed, British owner-run 'boutique hotel' in the popular, picturesque fishing hamlet of Caloura. It's ideally situated, half-way along the south coast, 15 minutes from the capital and 20 minutes from the airport. Relax on the terrace, overlooking the pool with the sea beyond, enjoying a carefully prepared hot breakfast. The informality of a private villa, the comforts of a luxury hotel. ... more   less
