Hotel Apartamentos Gaivota
Ranked #11 of 23 Hotels in Ponta Delgada
Reviewed 20 November 2017

Hotel Gaivota plus is certainly its location... At a mere 3 minute walk to the city center (Portas da Cidade) and situated on the main street by the sea, next door to restaurants, a grocery store and a small mall with 5 or 6 stores. The hotel is not brand new but the rooms are really spacious and very clean. Breakfast is very nice, with good variety of breads, a homemade cake, fruits, eggs and bacon. The staff is really friendly and helpful. Very good value for money! I would return!

Room was wonderful, clean and spacious.no view on land side but I wasn't in the room other than to sleep. Breakfast was good, a good choice of food - could have been warmer. Front desk was outstanding, helpful and friendly. They went out of their way taking care of our needs and information. Would definitely go there again.

The location of this hotel is ideal for both walking around the city and also for taking a taxi or car to other parts of the island because it is on the main street by the water. It is close to restaurants, grocery stores, cafe's and tourist sights. The rooms are simple but they are adequate and very clean. It seems that all of the rooms have a refrigerator, television, and additional seating. The bathrooms are a good size, and most importantly, very clean. The breakfast is quite nice and they seem to change the offerings slightly each day, but there is always fruit, breads, cheeses, eggs, and some meat. Everything is fresh. The front desk staff were all very kind and helpful. We arrived early and they were able to get us into our room quickly which was much appreciated. They supplied a very nice crib for our baby. We would definitely stay here again. It was the perfect hotel for a lovely trip.

Room Tip: The units with kitchens are quite nice because they also have a couch and dinning table.

Proud to be of Azorean descent!!! I decided on a very last minute trip to research my family heritage in Sao Miguel. Am I ever glad I did!
Hotel Apartamentos Gaivota ended up being a great option for me. All the amenities of home. Clean basics. Not fancy but I didn't plan on spending much time here. I lucked out with a great location overlooking the marina. So I ended my day sitting out on the balcony writing in my journal.
Breakfast was included in my stay and was certainly had many options to eat.
Staff was very courteous and helpful. I would definitely come back!

Was a choice dictated by the shortage of places but ended up being a beautiful option, with interesting advantages in location, service and price. The breakfast and the bathroom toiletries could easily improve and this would have direct effect in the comfort. To repeat...
