This is one of the finer hotels in Sao Miguel and as such, we have always stayed in the slightly older sister hotel next door. However, the sister hotel is undergoing a major renovation, so we decided to stay in the Marino Atlantico since this was a layover on our flight from Madeira back to Toronto.
The lobby, our room and the dining room were all excellent. The breakfast was excellent, with all you could want in variety and local culture.
There were three minor issues with the hotel, The first was the musty smell and the condition of carpeting in the hallway outside our room. This can be corrected by replacing the carpet which looked worn, something that needs to be done on a regular basis in order to maintain the hotel.
The second was the poor WIFI reception in our room. While my phone would connect, neither of my tablets would connect. The staff, while helpful, were not able to correct the situation.
The third was the condition of the caulking around the tub. While it was smooth and appeared to be clean, it was black in many places. Again, regular maintenance by replacing the caulking would solve this issue.
