Hotel Marina Atlantico
Avenida Infante D Henrique, Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel, 9500 150, Portugal
This was a great hotel. The room was clean and nice, and they cleaned it everday. The people who worked at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The swimmingpool and jacuzzi was not so good that I had hoped. First, you had to wear a swimcap if you wanted to take a swim and the jacuzzi wasn't such a big hit. The food at the hotel was just OK. They could had a more variety in the breakfast buffét. Eat the same thing everday wasn't so much fun. But overall, it's a great hotel.
A good downtown hotel
Stayed for a week and found this four star hotel peaceful, very modern and pleasant. It's located near the marina and we had a good seaview from our balcony. There is some traffic but it doesn't cause too much disturbance. However, I expect there to be more traffic later, when they get the new marina construction ready and the road work done and the strand boulevard is opened for the whole stretch. This is a green island, but you hardly see anything green from the balconies of this hotel.
The whale watching boats are leaving from just in front of Marina Atlantico and there are some nice restaurants in the neighbourhood. There's a small shopping mall nearby but the bigger mall is far away at the other side of town (I wouldn't say within walking distance). The breakfast buffet at this hotel was ok, but they could have had more variation during the week.
Unique Quality: There are very good services: hairdresser and beauty salon, indoor heated swimming pool, turkish bath, gym and sauna. However, the sauna's weren't heated when we were there. It's not nice to go to a room temperature sauna and wait for it to get warm!
Directions: The strand avenue near the marina
Just in front of the marina
Among the best hotels in town, Marina Hotel, offers you a good view over the ocean. If you are lucky enough Santa Maria Island also can be seen.
Unique Quality: Great views over the sea, location and good service.
Directions: In front of the Marina.
