Pros: “This place was awesome and Antonio and Lino were amazing! There is no one like Antonio and Lino !! The daily breakfast was always truly delicious, the place was SUPER clean and centrally located (with nearby parking) in Ponta Delgada. We just got back and we are already missing our stay with Antonio and Lino. Thank you Antonio & Lino so much for your hospitality!
Cons: Everything was perfect!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Antonio and Lino were fantastic hosts - they had so much time for everyone and were more than happy to sit down with us and give us recommendations for the day ahead. As a result, the hostel was very convivial and we had fun spending time with the other guests. The place is really well located in the centre of town and is kept spotless. The breakfast was generous and delicious. Would highly recommend!
Cons: Air con rather than a fan would have been nice on stuffy summer nights but other than that there was nothing we didn’t like.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Antonio and Lino were amazing hosts. It felt more like a homestay than a hostel-amazing breakfasts with a great selection cooked daily and every day was different! There was always advice on where to go and what to do on the beautiful island as well as practical help to book activities and car hire. The room and common areas were spotlessly clean and the location in Ponta Delgada is perfect. My time on São Miguel was improved by staying at Marina Lounge, I would recommend it highly! Thanks again guys, Maggie
Cons: There is not one thing I could fault.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location is very good, being close enough to go on foot to the central area and further enough to not be bothered by the crowds. The breakfast is simply amazing! Tasty food and plenty of variety every day. Chances are you will never eat something twice during your stay! The owners are very warm and welcoming. They gently gave us a personalized routes for our 3 day trip which was extremely helpful to get to see most of the island in our limited time-frame.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Antonio and Lino are remarkable hosts. From the amazing fresh breakfasts in the morning, to assistance with booking/tours, local restaurant advice and overall helpfulness, they are extremely valuable for first time visitors. My trip wouldn't have been the same without them!

Prepared with thought of each guest yet from the previous day.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: The host is amazing! She is so friendly and helpful, we came back for extra nights. Lovely breakfast and very clean facilities. There is a great ambience and feel. If you want to be in the heart of downtown it is the place to stay.
Cons: The level of noise from the street at night and into the early hours of the morning can be a challenge for light sleepers with an early start (not the owner's fault - it's a fantastic hostel and great location for restaurants and nightlife). You need to close the windows to sleep which means it is warm. Interior rooms are better for the noise than those facing the street.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: A beautiful house with charming rooms. I stayed twice in this B&B, at the beginning and at the end of my trip. Both times I had really lovely rooms with a comfortable bed and good bathroom. Wifi and airco worked well. But room no 1 was my favourite. I had a nice balcony with chairs and is located away from the street, so less noise. Also the bathroom was bigger. Good location, close to the city centre. Don't forget to climb the tower which has great views. A nice breakfast area with a excellent buffet. The first stay I had an early flight and an breakfast was provided for me at 5 am. Coffee, tea, water and biscuits are available throughout the day on a table at the reception. Last but not least, the staff is very friendly.
Cons: You will hear some noise from the street. But there is airco in the room, so you can keep the windows closed.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were fantastic once we reached the property. and the breakfast is wonderful. We had an early flight and one of the employees kindly prepared us an on-the-go breakfast.
Cons: The front and shared areas smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. It was really hard to get a hold of the main contact via the online messaging system. Also, I called several separate times via phone because there was such a delayed reply to the online messages and no one answered

Out Of The Blue - Ponta Delgada (Açores) - Bedroom
4
9.6 Excellent (209 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Featuring free WiFi throughout the property, Out Of The Blue offers accommodation in Ponta Delgada. The hostel features dormitories as well private twin or double rooms with either shared or private bathrooms. A terrace or balcony are featured in certain rooms. There is a shared kitchen at the property. Joao Paulo II Airport is 2.8 km from Out Of The Blue, while Santuario Nossa Senhora da Esperanca is 1 km away.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Out of the Blue completely exceeded all expectations I had going into my stay. First, I was expecting a lot more beds in the dorm I was in, but there were only four beds that were bunked, making it a more private space. The entire hostel is CLEAN. The staff area always keeping the spaces neat and tidy. There are enough shared bathrooms for those dorming. I never had a problem with trying to use a bathroom when I needed it. The common area and kitchen were spacious and had all appliances needed. The garden was a great plus, which also had a fire pit, decent-sized swimming pool, hammocks, and big sitting area for breakfast/dinners. I highly recommend going to breakfast and signing up for at least one of the family dinner nights (between 15-30 Euros depending on the theme). Breakfast is a combination of self-service and being served. Hot breakfast items will be automatically served to you as soon as you sit down, which usually consists of pancakes + another item. You also have the option to have bread, yogurt, and fruit. The family dinners have a theme each night and they are delicious! Also a great way to socialize with other travelers as well as staff. There were other events/outings that could be scheduled with the hostel, but I did not take advantage of them since I had a rental car. The staff was amazing. Very welcoming, friendly, and provided great tips/suggestions for visiting the island. The location is really close to the City Gates and an easy less than 5 minute walk to the center as well as to the marina area. Parking can somewhat be annoying because not every street is free. It might have been my timing, but I never found an issue with parking on the street the hostel is on. Ask the staff and they will also provide the location of other nearby streets that are free to park. I had such a good time and if I ever go back to Ponta Delgada, Out of the Blue is where I will stay for sure.
Cons: Bathrooms: slightly larger counter space to be able to set down hygiene products when using bathrooms, more towel racks across all bathrooms. Beds: there are no side barriers on the bunk beds, but was not a huge issue because I created my own barrier with my towel.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast is extraordinary and the staff is very friendly and always ready to help. The dinner parties are nice as well. Better than most of the restaurants in town plus you get to know the staff and the other guests.

Pros: Great location, very kind stuff - will help you with everything also will give you great advice to go around the island, everything is very clean, delicious and very special Breakfast, I love it and I Will Tell everyone who will visit Azores to go to this hostel. Thank you, stay awesome
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I kid you not, this is literally the best hostel I have ever stayed at in my entire life. I don't typically enjoy my hostel experiences and I usually just stay at them to save money, but this hostel is incredible. They serve you amazing home-cooked breakfast every morning (their delicious pancake recipe with different fresh fruit on them every day, their secret yogurt recipe with great granola, fresh bread, fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice, and then sometimes an additional dish with eggs of some sort.) I have also never stayed at such a CLEAN hostel or a hostel with such COMFORTABLE beds and a hostel I actually want to shower at. This should honestly be considered a hotel in you aren't staying in their dorm rooms. I stayed in their dorm rooms and it was still a better experience than I've had at some hotels. The staff is so amazing and so friendly! Everyone is from all over the world so it's really interesting to socialize with them. They also organize tours Monday-Friday specifically for their guests and they have a rotating dinner menu each day of the week that they offer for 15 euros (You will not regret going to their dinners. Their food was better than a lot of the restaurants I tried on the island). The cleaning ladies also deserve an award. They clean your rooms every day, remake the beds, constantly clean the bathrooms and are just all-around exceptional workers. Bravo to this hostel, the owners, the cleaning ladies, the rest of the staff and everything about this place! I will definitely be recommending this place and staying here if I ever come back to the island. The location is also very central in the city and a short walk to everything you would want to see in Ponta Delgada

Pros: What a nice host, Antonia Maria and Pedro are the best! Very warm-hearted, open-minded, attentive with heaps of useful tipps (and maps...=:) ). Highly recommended. Our room was to the garden, a bit noisy in the morning of incoming airplanes, but just close the window then.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: We really enjoyed our stay in this house. We felt like at home. The owner Paula was very friendly and she was always worried about our full stomachs.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Paula was very accommodating and friendly. Her daughter offered some translation help when we needed it. Me and my boyfriend longboard and the property is a 10 minute walk away from a little arena and skate park which we loved. Has a casual hostel like feel which as someone who stays in many hostels and works at a hostel I enjoyed. Very clean and bright with cute small white dogs :) would recommend. Obrigada!
Cons: A little bit loud from planes but worth it for the convenience of being near the airport. Limited vegan options at breakfast but good for a cheese eating vegetarian. There was peanut butter though and lots of spreads, and fresh pineapple and espresso each morning. :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The whole house is clean, comfortable and with a nice view over the ocean. Paula, the host, is very kind, friendly and willing. The first day she was awaiting us even though our arrival was late at night. The last day, she prepared breakfast for us at 5. a.m even though she did not have to. The breakfast was very tasty full of local products, e.g. pineapples, cheeses, jams. We had a wonderful stay thanks to Paula and her family! We recommend it without hesitation!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Housewife was absolutely great and kind. I hope I will come back.
Cons: Everything was perfect.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We really enjoyed our time at Villarelva. The house was very clean. We had the room with really nice view over the airport and the sea. It is easy to discover the island by public buses from Villarelva as the bus stop is in front of the house. The owners are very nice, always ready to give tips about the island and open for nice talks. The breakfast has many options, we loved the fresh fruits each day. If you rent a car there is plenty of private parking places. We recommend to stay at this guest house!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, very close to the airport and great access by car. Parking space within the property. The host Paula and her family were all fantastic people. Breakfast was absolutely delicious with fresh bolos levados from a local bakery and an amazing cheese selection from The Azores. Kitchen is great to cook and they have an amazing terrace where you can enjoy the dinner. Room was very cozy and comfortable, bathroom was clean. We have no doubts we’ll come to this place again!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Our hostess Paula was wonderful, her friendliness and helpfulness made our stay special. If you are an airline geek there is an amazing view of the airport. There is off street parking.
Cons: We stayed in the small room at the front of the house and could have used a small dresser or shelves for our belongings. We slept with the window open to cool down the room and while it did not bother us, the traffic noise was loud late evening and early morning. One minor suggestion for the shared bathroom, add a sign asking guest not to close the door when finishing in the bathroom so that other guest can tell the bathroom is available.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed 5 nights in a double bed room. We arrived after midnight, but the host Paula was waiting for us smiling at the door. She was very conscientious all along and made sure we felt ourselves comfortable. The villa has two floors. On the upper floor are the rooms for the guests, and one bathroom which is used by every guest. The villa has an own parking place. The breakfast is very tasty (several types of cheeses, coffee, fruits etc.) Paula speaks only a few words in English but every morning she came to us and adviced us where to go, she also gave us a map. The airport is literally next to the house, but there is no air traffic in the night so we could sleep. I highly recommend this place.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Highly recommended. Paula the host is very kind and friendly. Room was clean and beautiful. The house is close to the airport. The breakfast was amazing: local pineapples, natural cheese and ham. I wish we will come back. Best regards

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Everything was excellent , except for the dinner experience.
Cons: Management should rethink dinner restrictions and offers. I suggest to take the dinner order while booking reservation for the time of the dinner. Also it is ridiculous, that one can not choose or share a suggested sampling menu and everyone should have the same order, or no one can try it. For the price almost 3 times higher, then all other dinner places we choose it was real disappointment.
7.5 Good
Pros: This was the first place I stayed during my week in Sao Miguel. The hotel is beautiful with an incredible outdoor patio area and pool. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast outside in the mornings was a great way to start the day. Inside the room, the kitchenette was very convenient for making small meals when I didn't want to eat out.
Cons: I was expecting a different room. The pictures did not seem to match with the room that I got, which appeared to be much smaller and did not have the fireplace that was listed as one of the amenities. My room itself was very dark, felt damp, and smelled a little moldy at times. On the morning of my checkout day, I woke up to several dead cockroaches on my floor. As beautiful as this hotel was, I don't think it is worth the money I paid for the room I received.
7.0 Good
Pros: The location is perfect and the deco is nice. The hotel restaurant is not bad but a bit pricey.
Cons: We got terrible recommendation for restaurants. If you're told to go to Santa Barbara Eco-Beach Resort, don't go, the location is stunning and the food is really bad, they just happen to be partners with White. The breakfast is a setup with plenty of different small items, I prefer a buffet where I can eat plenty of the same item if I feel like it. But it's not bad, We didn't try the pool but its tiny and the hotel has no direct access to the ocean. The hotel staff recommended that we go to the over crowded beach a 5min drive down the road, omitting to mention that there's a great spot for an ocean swim 100m away called Zona Balnear do Cruzeiro (it's on google map).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I wasn't sure what to expect when pulling up to this hotel, but wow was I blown away once I stepped in the lobby. The staff, check-in process and our stay was perfect in every way. This hotel has a a phenomenal chef and we ate dinner there every evening. I hope to return one day as it was a highlight of our trip.
Cons: The only thing I would change is the storage space in the Junior Suite for luggage and bathroom toiletries. We like to unpack and it was a bit tricky to find a spot for everything. With that said, this would not deter me from staying there in the future!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: 1. Loved the food 2. Great service 3. Intimate setting 4. Beautiful views
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The size of the room was great, loved the protection from the rain(when it happened), staff were really nice and helpful for guiding my wife and I to local eats & wine. I would highly recommend for the view, ambiance,and tasting.
Cons: nothing to be disappointed with.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was always top quality. Most of the ingredients were locally sourced, adding to the appeal. The view from the room was superb, one of the reasons we chose this location.
Cons: A stair handrail would have been beneficial, especially for senior-type guests. Otherwise, we would have to search to find any meaningful negatives.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The setting and location were excellent and both complimented each other beautifully. It’s hard to beat nature, but White does everything to enhance the experience with its minimalist decor and well chosen furnishings. Everything was first class. Made my husbands 60th birthday extra special. In addition to the superb decor and great food, we couldn’t have asked for better service and a special mention to Braza, who was delightful and gracious. Are very likely to return to this dream of a hotel.
Cons: A few more coat hangers and perhaps a shelf under the sink in the bathroom to store toiletries and make up would have been welcome.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Awesome hotel. Beautiful views, wonderful comfort. Great staff. Myam brekkie. Very good restaurant.
Cons: Nothing

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were extremely kind and helpful, and breakfast was always delicious. I am also impressed with how clean everything was.
Cons: Location is a bit out of Ponta Delgada, but we actually liked that, as it was a bit calmer but still close enough to be able to walk to the city.
7.5 Good
Pros: Modern and new residence, comfortable bed, good quality of products, breakfast of good quality, small and intimidate.
Cons: Location is not’ good at all, the street of the hotel is having big work, so you hear the machines all day and it’s very cumbersome to find the hotel in the middle of the work (street is closed). When the machines final stop, until 8pm you hear the construction work of the houses near to the hotel being reformed. So if you are looking for relaxing stay,enjoying some time at the pool, this is not the place. But if you are looking to confortable nights and jumping early in the morning to do sightseeing and arriving late at the hotel just to sleep, it cold be then your choice.

Pros: This very well kept apartment/hotel was very conveniently located right next to the ocean. It is close to everything, yet not busy around us. It was very nice to have a full kitchen. They don’t have breakfast, but if you order the night before, a bakery will deliver items around 0900 the next morning. They are inexpensive and good.
Cons: We were supposed to have one cleaning which was missed.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Whales Bay is WONDERFUL! When you drive up the first thing you notice is the beautiful landscape - flowers everywhere; then the pool that could be on a magazine cover. The entire building looks new, clean, and fastidously maintained. White paint is white - no scuffs or scrapes. The staff at the front desk are so helpful and polite. This was our second visit - we will return. An added bonus; we happened to meet one of the owners while visiting. It was interesting to talk with him. The owners and staff take great pride in presenting their beautiful property to guests. The location for us is an A++; convenient to everything but outside of Ponta Delgado. Oh - those views of the Atlantic - turquoise waters that reminded me of the Emerald coast of Florida!
Cons: Can't think of one thing we didn't like.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Friendly welcome and staff helpful. Fantastic view and clean well equipped apartment.
Cons: Sauna and steam room had not been switched on when we arrived at about 7pm and we didn't want to wait 30mins for them to heat up. Quite a lot of local dog noise but this is common everywhere in Portugal.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Marguerite and her team provided us a wonderful experience, even when our arrival was delayed and we missed breakfast. Much to our surprise, a hearty travelers breakfast appeared. Marguerite assisted us with restaurants/ reservations. They really do know the island. Breakfast was the highlight of the day with a superb assortment of items. We loved speaking with the other guests each morning and so enjoyed the ability to make a cup of tea in the gracious living rooms, at other times. The Quinta is a European style guest hotel, located on the outskirts of town, but close enough to everything. Guests should know there are stairs between the levels, but is possible to move between areas by car. Our visit was in Oct.
Cons: Improvements to this wonderful place could be : luggage racks for the rooms and maybe a comfy chair

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
9.5 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.
9.5 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.

8.8 Excellent
Cons: No help bring luggage in and out for family
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Amazing restaurant with friendly, knowledgable staff. The breakfast buffet is excellent. Comfortable beds and balconies overlooking the harbour made the stay extra special. I also liked the tea and coffee making facilities in the room and the fridge with water (in glass bottles) replaced daily. The outside pool felt very refreshing and we also enjoyed a cocktail in the Whale Watching Bar.
Cons: The bathroom is stylish but dark and it is difficult to see to apply make-up, put in contacts etc. A bigger magnifying mirror with light would make a massive difference. Room service did not answer when we phoned so we ended up placing our order and bringing it up from the restaurant ourselves. Not a big deal but not quite what you would expect from a 5 star hotel.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast is really good.
Cons: Window cleaning was very poor. I know it's by the sea but still, they should have thought of that before getting very large windows. If you want to rainbow, you've got to put up with the rain.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice Location. Personal are helpful. Clean room
Cons: They said that " mini bar is free". I said thanks. It was suprise when I see the mini bar. I just loughed. There are weather and two juices. Nothing more. I'm staying hotels 6 mounts each year on the world for my work minimum 4 or 5 star hotels. No need to say to customers that mini bar is free. They can put a note in the room.

Pros: The hotel and room were much nicer than the hotel looked from the outside. The room was well appointed with a beautiful sea view from our balcony. The staff was very nice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: T H E P O O L! Oh my gosh, the rooftop pool and adjacent bar/grill is so amazing I spent a whole day there. The breakfast buffet is overwhelming. The rooms are hip, comfortable, and big enough. Fantastic harbor views. The staff speaks fluent English and will bend over backwards to help you.
Cons: The bathrooms are set up strangely, and the sinks are annoying. You can’t take the lobby elevator to the rooftop pool, so you have to walk all the way through the hotel. It’s at the very edge of the cool waterfront zone, so it’s a little far from the city center, but perfectly walkable.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: It was modern, beautiful, friendly staff and amazing facilities - especially the 7th floor outside pool. Rooms are spacious, beds are fantastic
Cons: We liked everything

Pros: Everything was great and it's really good location, next time I will stay there again. Cheers guys ;)
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff is nice and very helpful.
Cons: The dorm rooms have lockers but no locks at the door of the room. There's only one bathroom on each floor, which has to be shared between 8 persons. Also from my room we could hear everything going on in the bathroom. It would be nice to have female/male dorm rooms.
7.5 Good
Pros: Great kitchen, perfect location, super friendly atmosphere, staff was really helpful and so lovely!
Cons: Very few small bathrooms for too many people. I believe there were 12 people sharing the toilet and shower on my floor. The 2-bed-dorm was really tiny. Would have been more comfy to share with more people in a bigger room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I think that the staff is the strongest point of the hostel, since apart from fulfilling their duties (breakfast, punctuality, cleaning...), they get really involved with the guests. That is to say, they interact with everyone, they try to make everyone happy, they make sure nobody is left alone and they create such a familiar atmosphere even for those who travelled alone. Totally recommendable!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great. Room was very comfortable. The surroundings were interesting. Lots to do on the hotel grounds.
Cons: I liked everything.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The room was very comfortable. Slept well. The view from the patio was spectacular. It was nice having a mini fridge for drinks and snacks. We also enjoyed playing tennis here. The food at the restaurant was very good overall. The free breakfast buffet was ok but it was the suppers we really liked. Big glass of wine for 2.50 Euros. Good value. We loved walking down the path to the sea. There's a cute little black sand beach nearby, but we didn't swim because we were there in March. We didn't get to use the pool either but I bet it must be nice in the summer. Beautiful scenery and landscaping everywhere. Staff were always pleasant and helpful. No complaints!
Cons: The wifi was sometimes slow and would only work in certain parts of the room and hotel.

Pros: The view from our balcony was beautiful and serene. I loved having coffee on the balcony every morning. I enjoyed walking the path down to the ocean. The snack bar had wonderful food and drinks. The staff were so friendly and helpful.

Pros: The view was amazing. The people were delightful. The location was just lovely. I wish I had been able to stay longer!
Cons: I was taking a long trip with only a few days and they didn’t have anyone to help with luggage and it was a long way to my room on carpet so a cart would have been nice.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Great views of the coastline and out to sea. Good facilities, 25+m pool with a 3m deep end, nice cafe and restaurant. Staff friendly and helpful. Two great restaurants within a half hour stroll outside.
Cons: Breakfast was OK so long as you get there early enough, buffet dinner was not as good value as a la carte (we were not full boarding).
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Just paradise, a room with an Atlantic view, semi-tropical plants and flowers, rare Azorean birds.
Cons: We had a one day late arrival, due to a canceled flight from tap Air in Amsterdam. We phoned the Hotel immediately, but a one-day money restitution is impossible in this case: it is Booking.com policy, overruling the hotel goodwill policy, they claim. Therefore, the price- quality ratio was poor, thanks to Booking.com, unfortunately.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Lovely decor, very open, great sea views, restaurant staff wonderful
Cons: The front desk staff were very helpful re reception but would have been wonderful if more knowledgeable re hiking trails ( finding trail heads) and recommending hikes . It would be nice to be able to order light meals( lunch ) at the bar
9.5 Excellent
Pros: We were uncertain about this choice as the property looked a little dated. But we loved the place - great location, caring and attentive staff and generally wonderful ambiance added up to a perfect vacation. We actually changed the later part of our trip to return here for a few more days as it was a better way to relax and enjoy our remaining days in the Azores. Absolutely loved it and am certain to return.
Cons: wish there was a real bar and maybe the snack bar menu could be improved - not a significant complaint.

Kitchen next to the bathroom, very nice breakfast included available all day, washing machine to use for free, nice terrace too. The guy who checked me in was nice, provided maps and information about local transport. I was expecting a letter, which he said he would collect for me. The property was clean and the kitchen had nice, homey atmosphere. Parking outside the property is not free, but there is free car park about 5 min walk. Close to promenade and about 40-50 min walk to the airport.

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.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful property with lots of gardens and areas to hang out outside. Nice grill area. Wonderful history of the family and Quinta. Love that they are going the eco tourism route! House and property are huge!
Cons: We were quite disappointed in the “pool”. Although I love the idea of having a pool without chemicals that naturally cleans itself, the photos were misleading. I wouldn’t have changed my mind if the photos on booking were realistic, it’s more of a pond with a lot of algae and lily pads and frogs, beautiful and relaxing but don’t count on swimming. Also, close to the highway, of course not their fault, but good to know before booking.

Cons: A little outside the city center so less options nearby. While parking is plentiful in the area, the street is a bit tight right in front. It probably adds to the charm in the end but takes a little to get bags in and out.

The best day of our entire trip was the cooking class and dinner hosted here. The class was fun, the food and wine was amazing, and the connection and camaraderie we had with our hosts and the other guests made the trip unforgettable. We're so glad we stayed here!

Pros: Basically a nice little hotel with friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms, equipped with TV , wifi and a hairdryer. A good location for visiting the whole island. (A car is an absolute necessity).
Cons: The neighbours in the house opposite seem to have no idea they live next to a hotel where people expect to be able to sleep at night.

Pros: My wife and I stayed for a week in June. The greeting by Dina upon our arrival was very welcoming, helpful and informative. The hotel is spotlessly clean throughout. Nice, friendly and helpful staff. Really comfortable beds. Great bathroom facilities with a shower that had good power and plenty of hot water. Air con in the room. Really fresh continental style breakfast with a good choice and as much as you want each day. Great coffee to get the day started :) The location was brilliant and ideally placed for exploring all areas of the island. Good range of small shops and larger supermarkets nearby. Limited parking at the back of the hotel was available but even when we came back late and that was full we always found somewhere to park close by. This is a small hotel with a big hotel feel.
Cons: Nothing....jt was all good!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful. Two good restaurants were several metres from hotel. Quiet place suitable for families.
Cons: There were cockroaches. The same food on every breakfast and narrow sortiment of food. Parking places were limited only for 4 places inside hotel and rest of cars do not have a place for parking, sometimes it was a problem regarding parking a car.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Quality of breakfast corresponded to the low price. We were satisfied, however. For travelling around the island, we used the local bus lines only. In this way, we could learn more about the local people and local culture. Be sure, driving a rented car in the narrow streets of towns and villages is not for a faint-harted driver.
Cons: We were satisfied with our first stay. On the island. we experienced temperatures around 20 degree of Centigrade. In the meantime, in the heart of Europe (where we life), people suffered from temperatures over 30 degrees.
9.5 Excellent
Cons: clean the space below the hotel and sale all rooms as "mountain view"
9.3 Excellent
Pros: When you travel, far away from home and you just wish a place to stay and you wish a smile from the Staff, only a smile it would make you feeling better, so I can tell you: here you get a smile and much more! Here you get a treatement like a Family! Staff are really kind, they make everything for you to make you feel comfortable. They are helpful and really really kind, I miss this place already! We needed to make the check out early in the morning at 05 o'clock and they don't have 24h reception, we left the keys close to the reception and that worked fine for us, they left a little breakfast for us the night before in our room (this is something that makes you feel being a part of this family house, never happened before at the places I've stayed in. There is fresh breakfast each morning (buffet, you get the essential that you need to start your day). Little park behind the house or in the side on the street for cars (free of charge). They clean the room every single day, that's amazing! And everything so clean! Beds are comfy. We will be back soon again, for sure! TV in the room with lots of channels.
Cons: Sometimes the wi-fi wasn't so strong in the room (first floor, end of the corridor), and it would make it easier if it would be some plug sockets close to the bed, there is some plug sockets but they are all close to the window and far from the bed.
