Pros: The location - it was right in the centre. The kindness of the landlady, Patricia and the flat was very cosy.
Cons: I cannot mention anything that we didn't like. Everything was perfect!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Patricia is the best host in Ponta Delgada! We arrived in the middle of the night and she was waiting for us with some snacks and warm drinks. She also booked us a table in the restaurant near by! She is absolutely the nicest person I've ever known! I came back to her place after 3 years and it was very good decision! The place is clean, rooms are spacious, common area is very cute and breakfast is tasty!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I have felt so comfortable and welcomed at casa das palmeiras that I leave with the feeling of having relaxed and feeling at home. The kindness and care we felt from D. Eduarda till everyone in the staff ensuring we could visit the lakes with proper weather, giving suggestions or alternatives to fulfill our day. The stay is cared up to the very smallest detail and even having all the nature to discover you want to stay and enjoy slowly and peacefully the tasty breakfast changing everyday and giving opportunity to enjoy region products on a lovely and very well decorated room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The rooms and common areas were immaculate. The 15 ft ceilings everywhere in the building were amazing. A lot of restaurants and coffee shops nearby. The staff were the most attentive and helpful of any hotel I have used. They made our stay in Ponta Delgada memorable.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was amazing! We really appreciated how the staff varied the offerings each day, but always with plenty of selection and beautifully presented. And, delicious!!
Cons: The only thing I would suggest is that the sink in our bathroom was very small and at an awkward angle for washing face and teeth- it was hard to prevent water from getting on the floor.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Balcony and breakfast, location and bed
Cons: The room could have used a dresser/drawers to store clothes
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I loved everything about this place from the first moment I walked in the door. The property is just beautiful and those who work at the hotel truly care about their job and the satisfaction of their guests. There are refreshments available at all times and the breakfast is phenomenal and every day there is something different offered. On our last day we had to check out early and they even prepared a little breakfast box for us so we didn't head to the airport on empty stomachs.
Cons: For those who have trouble with stairs, I would not recommend staying at this property. The ceilings are high and the stairs to walk between each floor are a plenty!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staying at Casa das Palmeiras makes me feel like I am a princess :) The place has a wonderful feeling, a great location, and the staff is superb.
7.9 Good
Pros: The building and decoration is beautiful. The location is good. There is private parking for 5 euro a day (not always available)
Cons: The bed was squiqing, the sink was the size of one hand palm. If you are light sleeper this is not not the place for you.
7.9 Good
Pros: Clean, friendly staff, good location.
Cons: Room 2....no balcony, ridiculously small sink, no wardrobe, little storage space. Breakfast.....bar for the cereal....nothing for me. No facilities for coffee in the room.....the one by the front door a very slow Krupp or Krapp experience. In my personal experience, not value for money. Told by the managaress....the rooms are set up for short stays.....I don't disagree.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Out of the Blue is amazing! It was the best part of our trip to Portugal. I cannot say enough good things about it. The staff are so kind and make you feel right at home. They went above and beyond to show us around and help us when we had trouble parking. They make the most amazing breakfast for all of the guests everyday with fruit, bread, yogurt, pancakes, and a specialty of the day. The specialty breakfast items were so unique. During our stay for $15 Euros per person you could sign up for the dinner at night. The chef made the best dinner of anywhere we ate during our week trip to Portugal. We were there during Halloween and there was even a special Halloween party. We had a private room with a king bed. It had plenty of space and was cleaned daily. They offer different excursions but we didn't have enough time since we were only there a few days. We would come back to Azores just to stay at Out of the Blue!
Cons: There is nothing we didn't like!! The only thing to know is that parking was a little tough for us, but it is just the way it is in Ponta Delgada. After a few days we realized that you can pay to park at the end of the street and then overnight (after about 7 or 8pm) it is free until the next morning.

Pros: I miss all my staff friends, they were super fun. Great breakfast, huge garden, overall amazing place- probably the nicest hostel I've ever stayed.
Cons: Discount on family dinner for my last night was refused even though I stayed 9 nights. Laundry costs 10 euros.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: My stay at Out of the Blue was super great. Despite being a hostel they take care of small details like a charm hotel. The staff is super friendly, breakfast outstanding and I can securely say that it was the most cleanest hostel I ever stayed in. ☺️
9.6 Excellent
Pros: I have NEVER stayed in a hostel before or even a dorm-style room, and all my expectations (not too many, I assure you) were exceeded. The garden outback is impressively set out with various fruits and herbs growing, and is relaxingly serene to escape what little hustle and bustle there is outside. Every single communal space is thoughtfully decorated and preserves the feel of the original building. The location was very convenient and within walking distance of the excellent A Tasca restaurant and seafront piers. There are excursions organised every day to various places of interest/history/iconic points to keep you busy, and after a day of adventure, there is the lovely warm pool. The staff are friendly and very welcoming, when I arrived I was shown to the gorgeous sitting area and offered a drink while my bed was being prepared. That night, I joined the Family Dinner set up in the outside space (the Saturday menu is always a secret, I'm told) which was beautifully prepared by the resident chef...whom I presume also makes the eggs benedict for breakfasts - is this even a hostel??? - whilst I was there. The beds are sooooo comfortable and perfect for my back. The bathrooms were very clean and even more surprisingly...our beds were cleaned every day! There were times when I practically walked barefooted to the bathroom; don't be so shocked, it's THAT clean! I could go on, but even if I did finish this review, guaranteed there will be more thoughts I would want to add! I came for the hostel experience, and while I expected to meet people, I never expected to make friends, not just with the other lodgers but with staff too. THANK YOU Angela, Elisabeth, Lea (think that's the spelling!), Sanda, Magda, Patrick, Shai (I think??), Ilena and the rest of the team, for making Out of the Blue what it is... Hotel California in a sense; you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave...myself and the others I met certainly didn't want to!
Cons: As previously mentioned by other reviewers, it is an old building, so creaky floorboards are unavoidable...no surprises there. However, unlike other disgruntled reviewers, I came prepared (very light sleeper here, hello!) with earphones and eye mask. The sleep I had was as good as though I was in my own bed! So please do ignore the other reviews and just come with an open mind.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was our home away from home in the Azores. We felt so welcome. We valued that we could check in every day with our hosts to ask their tips for the island. The bed was the most comfortable bed of our four week trip! We didn't rent a car, but Casa da cidade turned out to be the perfectly located to explore downtown. All of the tours we booked were able to pick us up easily. The breakfast is delicious with locally sourced fruit, breads, butter and cheeses.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nobody knows Sao Miguel like Pedro! Prepare yourself for the BEST local tips you will ever receive from a host. He has maps with recommendations for every part of the island, which he'll gladly print out and talk you through over breakfast. Breakfast, by the way, is incredible! Everything is fresh from the local farmer's market. Our favorite part of the day was sitting on his beautiful outdoor patio, sipping coffee, and chatting with Pedro and other guests. (Ask him to tell you some jokes about Terceira and Algarve, hehe.) This was our second visit to Sao Miguel, and thanks to Pedro, we found new favorite restaurants and places. Casa da Cidade is hospitality at its best.

Pros: Hotel staff were amazing. They were really nice and welcoming and they all speak very good english. Location is good, 10 minute walking to the center.

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: My wife and I spent two nights here on the Acores part of our honeymoon. We wish we could have stayed longer. The property is situated on a bluff right above the water. You can hear the waves crashing the entire stay. We stayed in the Ocean view suite and it was beautiful. The room is not overly big, but enough room for a queen bed, a small closet, and a three seat couch. Sitting on the balcony just watching the waves crash with my wife was so peaceful. The staff was so helpful, nice, attentive. Can organize tours, or book dinner. The breakfast is EXCEPTIONAL. Eggs however you want them, and fresh meat and cheeses from local producers. Fresh juice. The small infinity salt pool was nice after hiking all day. A truly beautiful place that we wish we didn't have to leave.
Cons: Dinner at the hotel has to be reserved, with at least a days notice. We would have loved to try dinner but we didn't get a chance to book reservations for our second night. Not a huge deal, we just would have loved to try the dinner. Hats off to the staff, he asked if we wanted dinner (during the reservation process) the first night and thinking we were going to go out and explore, we didn't make reservations.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were so friendly and catered to everything we needed. They even drove us to the pharmacy to get medicine when one of us was sick. This place is truly a welcoming and magical place.

Breakbast was fine. The valet service is a real advantage. A perfect hotel for a sort getaway...

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Amazing location by the see, cool cliffs, flowers, nature. Good breakfast. Big pool with plenty of space to swim, not too crowded even in the high season. Whole hotel and yard really clean. Sunset live music was fun too.
Cons: One needs a car to go everywhere, even for dinner in the village as the roads are narrow and steep and not very nice to walk at least with kids and in the dark. Dinner buffet in the hotel not so special, ala carte was much better.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: breakfast was excellent ! checking out the beach was a challenge but rewarding. pool great but should be heated. Grounds were excellently kept.
Cons: It would be nice to provide a nightly shuttle to downtown Ponta Delgado for dinners downtown. Quiet atmosphere was good except it almost seemed like a ghost hotel at dinner. Perhaps include dinners with the breakfast at a slightly higher rate. People might stay in for dinner more. Also lights should be on outside for dinners. Every window was black when I ate there and one could not see any of the grounds outside. Lighting outside is important to enhance the dinner atmosphere.

Pros: We we staying in the Pico room on the top floor. A very spacious room with a nice view. It’s was very clean. We hardly saw anyone since it does not really have a reception. The cafe downstairs serves an excellent breakfast, very convenient. We loved our stay here!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I lived in a deluxe room Sao Jorge (all the rooms are named after the names of Azores islands) and it was an absolutely awesome experience. Hotel is very new (2018), light colors, the room is huge, spacious, full of light, with a kitchenette, two small balconies and 3 more huge windows. Beds are really good. Locations is the most central possible, close to the bars, shops, restaurants and a night club. Breakfast option in the hotel itself is not included, but you can enjoy café with perfect breakfast and lunch menu on the ground floor. Personnel is very friendly and helpful (even though not all of them have good English, all the questions I had were resolved immediately). To check-in ask ladies in café and they will help. There is an elevator! veeery helpful) There is no information on that, but you can ask for the beach towels (black ones). White ones management asks not to take to the beaches. I added some jazz music and aroma candles to my stay and it turned out to be my best experience ever. Already dreaming of coming back!
Cons: Be aware that the building is located on the cross-road so it's quite noisy to sleep with the opened windows, ear plugs do help. Cleaning is daily, but there might be some room for improvement. The standard cleaning protocol includes making beds, changing towels and washing dishes. Surfaces might be left with no attention. If you arrived by car be aware that there are no parking lots nearby as it's the "center of the center". Nearest free of charge parking we found was on the left from the Library (up the hill and to the left again). It's a 3 min walk and always has spare places.

Pros: The beds are very confortable, showers are great, kitchen has all you need and the location couldn't be better.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Much better than expected, very clean and very hostile. It did not feel like we were in hostel. It felt like a hotel. And the breakfast was just great! Highly recommend.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We took the private room and the private room has only another private room on the same floor, on the same floor is also a fully equipped kitchen, full size fridge, washing machine/dryer, and the whole kitchen/eating area is spacious. Private room (comfort) is better than the standard because of it's size and location.

Cons: Unfortunately there was construction work going on at the next door building, which made hanging out in the backyard area a bit less relaxing due to the noise.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The accommodation is well located and very close to the sea and the airport as well. It's tidy, the stuff is friendly and helpful and the breakfast just amazing.

7.1 Good

10.0 Excellent
Cons: Wonderful friendly and helpful staff. They helped with every issue you might have, made reservations, did early breakfast when needed, gave good restaurant recommendations and many other helpful things - which made the stay so nice. I would definitely stay here again.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Located a few km away from the city center and airport. Very convenient. Within a three minute walk were two great restaurants - one for fish; one for meat. The rooms were very comfortable, with lots of space and even two sinks in the bathroom. The breakfasts were hearty. The outdoor space was lovely. The view of the Atlantic Ocean was a bonus. The proximity to the walking path and swim locations in the ocean were much appreciated.
Cons: The construction going on next door meant for noise during the day, but otherwise no complaints.
7.0 Good
Pros: The hotel is very nice. It is very clean, nice decorated, very intimate. The room was quite big, you have a sitting area and a kitchen in the first floor, and also a small pool and sitting area outside.
Cons: The hotel claims that they have sea view and that's partially right. However, be aware that you will see a bit of the sea and a lot of ugly and half-ruined buildings. The environment is not nice, the neighbors were very noisy and we woke up in the middle of the night several times because their dog started barking. Besides, in the nearby house they are doing renovation works, so it is very noisy and again the view is quite unpleasant.
7.5 Good
Pros: Easy parking and therefore good location to drive around the island. Modern and quite stylish. Nice small pool. Quality sheets etc. Helpful staff.
Cons: Long and not very nice walk to Ponta Delgado. Noisy from building work in street (not their fault). Didn't feel away from it all due to location. Stayed in cheaper places that I thought were much better value - this was a little overpriced.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This will be long. But worth reading if you’re going to Sao Miguel. This hotel is beautiful and charming. The decor is lovely and all details are cared for incredibly well. The rooms are spotlessly clean and cozy. The breakfast buffet is exceptional - it changes every day, and everything is fresh and delicious. It’s also presented beautifully. All of this was really great. However, the people who work at the hotel made our stay. Margarida is amazing. We assumed she owned the place by how much work and heart she puts into everything. She and Stacy went above and beyond to help us with every request for advice or restaurant bookings or activities. They are very warm and seem to genuinely enjoy helping guests have a good experience while visiting Sao Miguel. They gave very good tips for places to go based on talking with us and understanding our interests (e.g. Stacy recommended a beach that was a real escape, situated below a jungle-like forest and surrounded by beautiful, very dramatic coastline, with very few people). Every member of the staff is very kind and helpful. You feel very welcome and relaxed. They’ve managed to create a unique atmosphere. I should also mention that Margarida and Stacy switched into overdrive when they learned it was my boyfriend’s birthday. We gave no notice and had a few unrealistic would-this-be-possible requests for the day. They went all out to try to make it all happen. They’re clearly well connected on the island and know it well. Margarida knew that I wanted my boyfriend to be able to have chocolate cake that evening at dinner and to avoid any chance of the restaurant selling out of their chocolate desserts, she personally delivered a chocolate cake to the restaurant in the afternoon as a gift to us. Imagine! If you’re going to Sao Miguel, I can’t recommend this hotel highly enough. Thank you Margarida, Stacy, Joao, everyone! -Molly
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were exceptionally helpful, especially with Restauraunt suggestions and day planning - all this in English as our Portuguese was almost non-existent. The older building is beautifully adapted to its current function. We were there very early in the season -first week in April and almost the only guests - yet we were treated to a lavish feast of a breakfast which changed daily.
Cons: Thankfully, our bedroom had a separate, very quiet convection heater as the building was not using its central heating unit; thus the bathroom was quite cool - and humid - making it difficult to dry washed clothing, - and cold’ish to shower in.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: - Beautiful grounds and setting - Delicious breakfast with variety of specialties - Nice pool area - Great hospitality
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We arrived at midnight at the airport but there was still waiting someone to welcome us at the hotel (with umbrellas and all since it was raining a lot). Excellent breakfast with fresh homemade products (cakes, juices, eggs, jams...) with a lot of choice in a very nice setting. Helpful and very kind staff.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Staff is very helpful. At 5:45, a kind lady ( one of the employees) came to the hotel to unlock it, because on our way to the airport we found out, that we forget personal things in the room. Because of her kindness, we did not miss the flight .

Pros: This place is amazing. Extremely clean and a great location. The rooms are upstairs and there is no elevator but that was fine for us. Very authentic....we would definitely stay there again!

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Harvesting our own vegetables and salad to use for dinner (the Bbq which we enjoyed so much) was very satisfying! They tasted extremely well too. Kudos for the entire staff/volunteers for the amazing work. The well equipped kitchen is an asset. Very friendly staff members, and thank you for the ride to the airport.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The estate is beautiful and the rooms are lovely – ours had a working fireplace and plenty of wood to put in it. The kitchen is also very nice and clean.
Cons: Be forewarned that the bathrooms are not ensuite for most rooms. The location isn't terrible, but it's far from great – it's a 25 minute walk into the center of town, and the walk is not an interesting one.
