    Fabulous

    We thought that we had booked an apartment as we planned to self-cater, but were given a hotel room. We decided not to fuss about this and accepted the arrangement. The upstairs room was pleasant, spacious and clean with windows into a courtyard. The location couldn't be better - across from the marina and next to a supermarket, restaurants, pavement cafes and services. The breakfast room has a pleasant courtyard outlook- a plentiful variety of foods but not-so-good coffee.

    Superb

    Nice, large airconditioned apt with kitchenette. Good towels, bathroom and matress. Two desks and flat screen tv with CNN and BBC World.

    Limited utensils and pans in kitchenette, but upon asking hotel provided both corkscrew and frying pan for my use. Cable internet in room seems limited in connectivity to the web, but downstairs free wifi is excellent. Breakfast is standard portuguese, which is a bit modest for European standards. Back of the hotel looks out over abandoned area with ruins of houses, but it is quiet and no traffic noise (as in front).

    Very good

    The location of the hotel is in the very center of the city, on the seaside. Big rooms with kitchenette. This type of hotel wouldn't quite be my choice for a holiday residence, but for the one night that we spent there it was ok.

    Superb

    spacious clean and quite even though it is right in the promenade with traffic. Good view from the balkony facing the sea. Very good value easy for public transports as we were on a walking holiday.

    The hobb in the apartment kitchen was not working when we arrived. However next day was promptly fixed.

    Fantastic location of the hotel! The main pier with restaurants and bars was right across the road! The centre of town - just 2 blocks away. Breakfast had a good selection of breads, fruits and hot foods. Our 2 bed room had a separate living room / kitchenette.

    Close to main street

    I didn't feel safe or homely here even though the area is fine. I guess I'm just not used to places like these but I'm trying to be fair here.

    Good

    The location of this hotel is good. It is on the waterfront...doesn't mean a view but, is close to many activities. It is confortable and above the middle in terms of accomodation options. It's overpriced for what you get but, choices are limited in Ponta Delgada. I would consider other options but might choose to stay here again. The air conditioning is good, large room, large bath, and quiet room.

    The breakfast was inconsistent. Some days there would be dirty tables and almost no food...with 2 hours left on the service. Some days this was not the case. On the best days, the breakfast was ....ok. There is eggs, bacon, cereal, cheese, meats, yogurt, juice (watered down), pastry, and other breads.

    Great location, comfortable room and the staff is very helpfull.

    My one complaint would have to be about the pillows and that is it.

    Room was very spacious, great hardwood floors and large bathroom. Complimentary breakfast and wi-fi in lobby area. Directly on the sea at the marina/main dining area of the city. Two minute walk to swimming, either in the ocean or public pool. Over all, great place to stay in Ponta Delgada.

    Superb

    Wasn't expecting an apartment with so much space: living room, kitchen and bedroom. We couldn't hear any noise at night, although it is right besides a main avenue, and the location is great with a fantastic view over the marina. There also easy parking nearby and a rent-a-car right next to the hotel.

    At breakfast there could be some more regional products using the island delicacies. The room attendants could be a little more efficient (some times they would forget the soap, or some of the towels).

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The small apartment we had was great. Beds weren't so comfy but everything else was great. Nice view of the harbor. It was right in the middle of the downtown strip and had easy access to the beach, shopping, and restaurants.

    Dark room - only few lights. Small variaty of breakfast.
