      Hotel facilities, Romantic Package was very good value; Helpful staff.

      The restaurant. Was very busy but understaffed both at dinner and at breakfast.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      Were rerouted to Ponta Delgada due the volcanic ash cloud on our trip to Flores and Faial. The staff at the hotel very service-minded, friendly and made you feel you'd like to return to the hotel. Free internet connection in the rooms which was highly appreciated in those circumstances trying to find a way out of the island. Rooms comfortable and modern. Absolutely fabulous breakfast!

    • Couple
      7.8

      The rooms were a very good size for European standards and they actually have double beds which is a definite plus instead of pushing two single beds together for couples!

      I did not appreciate the discomfort of the mattresses. It was very difficult to get a good nights sleep. They are too soft and/or possibly too worn. As I only stayed for 2 nights I bore it however if I had stayed longer I would have insisted on a firmer mattress to rest properly.

      Great location and the staff made us feel at home.

      The price could be better.

    • Single
      8.8

      Really good value breakfast and internet on room, also garage for rented cars

      Swimming pool and sauna is just to count, not really to relax.

    • Single
      7.8

      size, comfort and equipment of the room , availability and readiness of the hotel staff, the breakfast variety

      The fitness centre was poorly maintained. Both the treadmills we're broken. The first room i was given was not clean and tidy, but in a minute the staff change me to a new room, perfectly clean and tidy

      Food quality is based around quantity rather than quality. When we arrived at 0030 in the morning (flight from uk arrives 23.45 at airport) we were told we had no room and were being changed to another hotel for one night - all went well (the other hortel was good) but it meant another taxi ride and bed at 0300 rather than 0100 after a longggg day - I am told that this is not an unusual occurence for the Lincs Azores

    • Family with children
      9.6

      Breakfast was included with the price of the room and was very substantial. Rooms had plenty of space. Staff was helpful when problems arose.

      The pillows were lumpy and the only time we wanted to use the pool it was closed due to cleeaning..

    • Family with children
      9.2

      This hotel was a perfect choice for our family. The family room was big enough and we had a great ocean view from the balcony. Although every room does not have the balcony. The location of the hotel was good: Low/No traffic noise, easy access and free parking with rental car, hotel is at 10-15 min walking distance from the beach avenue. The personnel in the hotel was very friendly and helpful. At breakfast there were enough selections for all tastes and diets.

      The one and only disappointment was that the pool was closed twice during our stay at the hotel.

    • Single

      Very Spacious hotel room! Awesome swimming pool. Sauna + Jacuzzi to top it all. I like the breakfast buffet too. Location is very good. Only 5/10 min walk down to city centre.

      No Flat Screen TV. Very bad pool table. No island map available on request??! Besides, Internet did not work properly even with the cable! I have to say, internet access in the room for my colleague worked fine.

    • Family with children
      6.6

      Breakfast was really good! We managed to get good price for this tipe of hotel.

      The windows should be cleaned at least sometimes.... We missed the balcony...

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      The room was OK, nice bath room, new furniture, large underground private parking garage (keeps the car cool!), 20 - 30 minutes' walk to the city center, bath room very clean, location OK

      Please clean up the stairs outside and remove the dust under the bed. Advice to the staff: smile please!!! A nice "hello" is enough! The swimming pool area / wellness is too small and not attractive. The hotel feels more like a "business hotel"

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      The staff is extremely friendly, the room is perfectly clean and the bathroom is simply luxury. The breakfest is fresh and tasty, though somewhat monotonous.

      A bit noisy from outside. Closing the windows resolve the noise problem, but then the noise comes from the airconditioner, which in addition, does not work very well. The breakfast lacks a few basic things: vegetables, porridge.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      Front desk was fast and efficient and staff offered useful advice. Room had good view towards coastline. Bathroom well designed and equipped. Breakfast available from 06h30, useful when making an early start. Free access to internet.

      Despite being a large and impressive building, the entrance was small, cramped, and at the opposite end to the city centre. I found the piped music in public areas a little intrusive.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      A nice hotel with all the usual comfort. About 20 minutes walk from the city in a newly developped area. Free garage and Internet are a bonus. The road connection to the island's motorway is very good. Approximately 7 minutes drive from the airport.

      The spa facilities are functional, but a refurbishment would help.
