The Lince: The Lince

This hotel is located about a kilometer from marina. I like to walk so for me the location was perfect but there are also mini bus stop next to the hotel.
Hotel were clean and staff very friendly and professional.
I would have been happy with less facilities with the price I paid but I was happy to have a swim in a swimming pool of the hotel.

Hotel Ponta Delgada: Well worth the costs

Staying at Ponta Delgada was overall a nice stay. We lived there for a week in 2008 and for the price we payed I must say we got my money worth.

The room we got was normal standard, a closet, double bed, a tv with lots of foreign channels, nice bathroom and the room came with ocean view! In the closet there was a little safe where you could put your valuables. The room was clean on arrival, and the cleaners did do a good job.

The breakfast was what I could expect from a three star hotel. There was the essentials like bread, fruit, scrambled eggs, bacon, juice milk, water and coffee. For the whole week it was the same breakfast everyday except fpor the bread that differed abit from day to day.

Service was ok as well. The receptionists understand and speak english and it was no problems communicating with or get help from them.

The sounds of airplanes landing and taking of might distrub some people, but we did not find it troublesome at all.

Its location is quite nice as well since it´s located at the "outskirts" of ponta delgada. about a 40min walk to the shopping mall, and about 20min to city center.

Hotel ponta Delgada lived up to my expectations, no more and no less. I would definately recommed this hotel to people that have average expectations on average hotels.

We didn´t spend that much time in the hotel, but we did explore the pool area. There is an inside pool with hot tub and a sundeck just outside of the pool area. We heard rumors of an outside pool area as well but we didnt bother to see if the rumor was true or not.

There´s also a bar at ground level where you could relax in the evening with a beer or two.
We had our balcony at the bar-side of the hotel and that might be a disturbance for some people.

We got a room facing west which gave us a very nice ocean view. It also meant that our balcony didnt face the street which made the room quiet. If you get a street view room I would think the view isn´t that great.

Casas do Monte Alegre: Rural houses

Nordeste municipality is far away from Ponta Delgada and is an interesting place to explore due to the gorgeous landscapes. The highest mountain of São Miguel, Pico da Vara, with a little more than 1000 m is located here.
If you like to explore this municipality, staying in these houses is, in my opinion, a good idea.
Theses houses were adapted for tourism, but a rural flavour has still remained.

Quinta Da Altamira: Caloura, Sao Miguel , Azores

My wife and I stayed at Quinta Da Altamira in Mid-October 2006. This place is one of the best-kept secrets of the Azores. Quaint personal bungalows of various sizes are situated in the middle of beautifully landscaped gardens and orchards. Wonderful ocean views out toward Ilse Villa Da Franco, just up the coast. Caloura, in Agua de Pau, is one of the nicest ares of the island. Rentals were reasonably priced and private. I paid about $400 for the week's rental of a smaller bungalow.Included full kitchen facilities etc which allowed us to cook our own breakfast and dinner when we wished. Our bungalow even came with it's own cat, Felix, who pretty much resided with us for the entire week. Seriously, this Quinta was exactly what we were looking for in a place to stay. Clean and well-kept bungalows and beautiful scenery. Only 20 minutes drive o Ponta Delgada, thirty minutes or so to the airport. We were SOOO glad that we did not stay in a conventional hotel in Ponta Delgada. The owners are a German couple whom we found amiable and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for an inexpensive, private, island get-away.

Private bungalows, landscaped gardens and orchards, ocean views; all for less than a hotel Downtown. Unbelievably good deal.

Arcanjo Bed and Breakfast: Arcanjo Bed and Breakfast

If your looking for a place that combines quality with low prices this is a great place to stay. its well located (in the center of the island) near the sea and in a a small picturesque village, its confortable and quiet. The staff is very friendly, they really make you feel like at home.

A friendly place with quality and low price.

Quinta Santa Rosa: sao miguel's best boutique hotel

We spent a week in a 300 year old hacienda style boutique hotel just minutes from downtown Sao Miguel, Acores. We rented the Big House with its own sweeping entry way inside the courtyard, an enormous living room with fire place at one end and a baby grand piano at the other, an incredible tiled kitchen with all modern conveniences and even a bbq pit inside. the mster bedroom was the most romantic we have ever stayed in...bed facing a beautiful fireplace in front, rich red walls trimmed in gold, a lovely sitting area and an incredible sunroom perfect for sipping that first cup of coffee in the morning as you look out over the formal gardens of the quinta. The hacienda even includes its own chapel built in the 1600's. You would want to rent a car. The island is only 50 miles long and can be seen on several day trips including one to Furnas...location of the natural hot springs...tucked below a mountain, half hidden in a cave. you can take a pan full of vegies and meats to the park there and have them dropped into a cooking pit...go sight see, come back in 7 hours and eat. This is a magical island, reminiscent of Ireland with its stone walls and rolling green hills...but with mediterranean style villages throughout. off the beaten path, but worth the journey.

We would definitely rcommend this boutique hotel to anyone wanting something a bit different. described the facilities above, butthe grounds, too, are worth the trip....lovely old fashioned english garden with an enormous fountain in the middle, pathways of stone...a lovely patio infront with comfortable tables and chairs to sip some portuguese wine or port...we found some yummy red wine for 1 euro 27...you are only 5 min. from the water...on the other side of the quinta they have lovely flowering tree walk ways ... a must see

Hotel Camões: Azores' Most Sympathetic Hotel

I spent one week in this Hotel. It's a four stars hotelbut is not too expensive. The restaurant is very good and you can taste great kinds of fresh fish. As Azores are in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean there are lots of fish from the most differing kinds. The restaurant's manager is very competent and it's allways ready to give his best counsels and suggestions.

This Hotel it's placed in the center of the town, near the coast. However in the bar you may see your e-mail account while you can drink a fresh cup of a special typical wine (Verdelho) from Pico's Island.

Hotel Marina Atlântico

Oferece condições ideais quem prefer a vista tranquila do oceano, mas localizado no local superior da cidade perto de compras, museus, e monumentos de interesse.
Com arquitetura cedo de ilha-estilo e jeito moderno, o hotel caracteriza 140 quartos plenamente equipados. Algum quartos são triplos.

Ponta Delgada, capital do arquipélago dos Açores e da Ilha de São Miguel, estende-se em terreno plano, tomando a forma da baía natural que a recolhe desde a sua fundação. Possui um excelente porto artificial para embarcações de grande e pequena tonelagem.

Hotel Marina Atlântico está situado em plena avenida marginal, junto à baía de Ponta Delgada, oferecendo uma vista incomparável sobre o porto e a marina da cidade. O hotel dispõe, ainda, de salas para reuniões e festas, piscina interior, "fitness center", bar, restaurante e um assadiço que dá acesso directo ao porto de recreio da maior cidade açoriana.

Equipamento:
Nenhum é verdadeiramente indispensável, mas um par de binóculos, uma máquina fotográfica e uma câmara de vídeo são altamente recomendados.

Hotel do Colegio: Perfect choice for downtown Ponta Delgada

It is located on a very narrow street, and parking can be difficult (at best) but once you are parked -- the experience could not be beat.

A very nice bar and meeting area in the lobby, good breakfast (but not a wide variety of selections.)

The staff is cheerful and helpful. Cheap internet access at 1 euro per half hour.
We arrived very early in the day and they quickly showed us to our room even though normal checkin time was not until much later in the day. Of course, we were traveling during the off season.

This hotel was recently converted from a former convent and in centrally located within easy walking distance of shops, museums and restaurants.

We felt that they had made every attempt to retain some of the character of the building while adding modern day amenities.
We noticed inside the front doors the remains of the loading area for carriages.

The pool is now located in what once was the center courtyard; we had a view of this from our room.

Hotel Bahia Palace: Hotel and Beach



A hotel located one foot from the best beach of the island.
Água de Pau village, where we reach the picturesque place called Calora, an Vila Franca do Campo town, the former capital of the Island, are not far from this hotel.
If you like trails, I advise you to go to the Lagoa do Fogo from Praia place.
