You may have already read that this hotel is a bit 'tired', however, I will draw on the positive aspects.... We visited this hotel for a week in April 'out of season' and it was very peaceful and quiet.

A very beautifull hotel with "heavy" and luxury character with a private beach with sand and plenty of volcanic vasaltic stones (i took one from the seashore as souvenir ) and a magic view of the northern atlantic. If you want privacy go without doubt. A car is recommented.

This is an interesting hotel since it is a majestic hotel with grandious features, like the entrance or the large rooms with closet, but its needing some repairs like substitution of carpets and drapes and solve some minor problems in the rooms (taps and loose ceilings). Although there are some minor problems with the rooms and the overall style is...

We stayed here at the end of October with the children. The location was what we wanted, quiet and away from noise I would suggest a rental car is needed, its a twenty five minute drive to Ponto Delgado but less than five to Vila Franco do Campo with its supermarket (Sol-Mer good place for a cheap meal and coffee)....

I am sure this once upon a time was a genuine 4star hotel, but today it is just old and it doesn't seem like anything has been done since it's original state. Dinner at the restaurant downstairs was not very good, and the room smelled of moist. Location is remote, but indeed picturesque. Did not try the pool, but there...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set on São Miguel Island, with direct access to the beach "Baia de Água d'Alto" and with clear panoramic view to the Atlantic Ocean, you can find here the harmony and peace that you need for your holidays. São Miguel is the largest island of the archipelago, where more than half of the island's population lives at. Together with Santa Maria Island, São Miguel forms the Eastern Group of the Azores Archipelago. Whether for its proximity to the ocean, as well as for its large outdoor freshwater swimming pool. Every single area of this 4-star hotel was exhaustively planned in order to ensure the communion between elegance and good taste with the environment. The rooms have a balcony and a panoramic view over the ocean, along with the hills. Save some time to admire the exquisiteness that surrounds you. All the spaces were carefully planned in order to make good taste and elegance prevail in a classic and refined atmosphere, in synchrony with the surrounding beauty. This is a resort with a strong affinity to water. This Hotel has at your will a wide range of facilities that include Junior and Senior Suites, restaurants, bars, swimming pool, conference rooms, games rooms, library and reading room, saunas, gym, gardens and areas reserved for banquets, marriages and baptisms. ... more   less
