The Quinta Do Mar B&B in the coastal town of Caloura is a fantastic small scale Azores boutique hotel. Entrepreneurs Nick Heathcote and Chris envisioned a full-service, luxury retreat with the added benefits of a B&B when embarking on this project. Keeping in line with their service-first policy, there are just 4 rooms in this establishment. The spacious rooms have...

We only realised just how good this hotel was after we had left. We really enjoyed it during our time here, but it was only afterwards that we fully appreciated just how much thought and effort had gone into running Quinta do Mar so successfully. It is so different from any other hotels we have stayed at. It was the...

The Quinta do Mar is perfectly situated to discover Sao Miguel and to enjoy the atlantic ocean. But the main reason to come back, is the wonderful service and relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to Chris, we enjoyed a very delicious breakfast, different every day, yummy cakes in the afternoon and got the best restaurant recommendations for dinner. Gilda made a perfect...

Wonderful, tasteful hotel in beautiful, relaxed unspoilt surroundings. The service, breakfast and room were excellent. This was our first trip to the Azores and didn't know what to expect as we booked primarily for dolphin and whale watching which was a great experience in itself. The island is beautiful, unspoilt with amazing views. The hotel is a great base for...

I've read everything that has been written about Quinta do Mar and I have to say that it is just not true. It's far better than that! Everything that one would expect from a first class hotel with much more. We felt like guests whose needs and interests were paramount. We wondered if the lack of a restaurant for evening...

We can only echo previous reviews in their praise for the level of informal hospitality at Quinta do Mar. Far more relaxing and personal than staying in a conventional hotel; you feel at home as soon as you walk through the front gates. The rooms are airy and spacious with sea views, and the real treat of the day comes...

All the good things are true: hotel is beautifully located, there is a fantastic restaurant within walking distance, swimming pool is great, garden is impressing, owners and staff are very helpful and kind, breakfasts are really tasty. I won't expand on this as you can read other reviews. On the negative side: - the owner before the arrival/booking ignored our...

We stayed at Quinta do Mar for 3 nights. The rooms we're clean and comfy, the grounds were tropical and well kept (the pool was not huge but very nice), the view of the ocean was great, the staff were very friendly. The cooked breakfasts were very tasty. There was an excellent restaurant in walking distance on the ocean. I...

We can only say that our stay in Quinta Do Mar is just as previous reviews suggest. Perfect. Nick, Chris and Gilda offer the best accommodation, service and friendliness any holiday maker could wish for. We also experienced the call of cory's shearwater during our evening drinks, our fellow holiday makers want this as their 'ringtone'. A bonus of having...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to a small, 4-bedroomed, British owner-run 'boutique hotel' in the popular, picturesque fishing hamlet of Caloura. It's ideally situated, half-way along the south coast, 15 minutes from the capital and 20 minutes from the airport. Relax on the terrace, overlooking the pool with the sea beyond, enjoying a carefully prepared hot breakfast. The informality of a private villa, the comforts of a luxury hotel. ... more   less
