We spent 5 days on Sao Miguel and were very fortunate to have stayed at the Hotel do Mar. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. The hotel staff are very friendly and more then willing to help with answers to questions, and offer many helpful suggestions about the local area. It is about an hour out of Ponta...

I got this hotel as part of an amazing travel deal. I would not book it again because it is very far from Ponta Delgada (1 hour). It had amazing views of the ocean, but no beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds/pillows were uncomfortable but not terrible. The biggest issue was that we were given 2...

At first glance when we purchased an 11 night package through Travelzoo for Madeira Island and the Azores we were a bit disillusioned to find that one of our hotels was far from the port city. Little did we know that the town of Povoacao and the accommodations at Hotel do Mar would be one of the highlights of our...

Visited in October we had a room with sea side view, perfect! Clean and enough space for the 2 of us. Friendly staff and overall a great stay. In town a few restaurants but nothing special, so you need to drive for 10 minutes but no problem at all. Though the hot tub, was way to hot... , but if...

This hotel was basically perfect for our needs. The beds were a bit firm for our liking but we are now staying in a four star hotel on the west end of the island and encountered the same firm beds. The concierge Diego was very helpfull and kind and speaks English very well. The hotel was very clean with a...

we stayed here for 4 nights and were pleasantly surprised at our hotel. Room was big and bright with a large balcony which held a table, 2 chairs and a lounger.

Lovely staff who so tried to be helpful. We prepaid for seven nights through an agency but left after one. Lovely view (we paid extra) from an OK room with a great balcony, although the harbour is sadly neglected as a place of interest (and note, there is no beach). The hotel was too remote for us as we weren't...

Hotel is right on the harbour and has beautiful views. It was April when I visited and the hotel was very quiet so the pool area seems unattended and needed work - but staff were really lovely - I was upgraded in the room and had a very pleasant day trekking around the local hills and water front. It is...

Our room with the ocean view was great. There was a nice breeze from the ocean, sometimes bordering on a much stronger wind. Breakfast was fine, if not elegant. There was a small refrigerator that we used. I don't know if the TV was old...I was there to see the island, not TV. If you are going to drive, reserve...

This hotel is right on the water and has nice views. For the money it is a great choice, at least for a short stay. It's not much for extras in the room, a really old fashioned TV and no refrigerator. There is an area on the top floor that has wonderful 360 degree views of the area. We got...
