Pros: Great hotel, loved the location, all the staff was excellent & attentive. The hotel & grounds were extremely well kept & clean.
Cons: The only complaint is the shower had no soap holder or a place to put shower toiletries or to place a leg to shave.

Pros: Fantastic hotel nestled in the small village of Furnas. The hotel staff was amazing, quickly answering any questions we had about the hotel and surrounding area. We were even greeted by the Hotel General Manger.
Make sure to eat at A Terra. You can tell they put a lot of love into what they do. Delicious food that will be missed upon return to the US.
A true gem.
