Definitely worth the extra for a room with a sea view. Nice big room. Only negative comment would be that there is no tea/coffee facilities in the room. Whole hotel is very clean. Staff friendly. Good continental breakfast. Very quiet small town. We're just at the end of the season so there only a few restaurants still open within walking...

The hotel is satisfactory, staff friendly particularly Ana (hope the pregnancy goes well) who provided useful information on the locale. Taxi driver Jose was a delight and showed us viewpoints. The boom boom music from cantinho should be banned as completely spoils the ambience of the area!! Room spoilt by daily bin refuse collection and too close to hotel entrance...

Very nice professional staff. Room very clean yet a bit spartan. Excellent location in a nice town from which to explore the island. A few very good restaurants in town. And the price...quite inexpensive. Included breakfast is very good. Will not hesitate to stay here again. Most of staff speak enough English to be helpful.

After a late night drive along from the airport that was a bit scarey, we had no problems finding the hotel. We were greeted and welcomed well at reception. The room was comfortable and spotless. The shower was paticularly excellent. The room was cleaned daily. Breakfast was predictable but had a lot of choices and good food. The dinning room...

The Hotel do Mar is the place to stay if you want a few days out of the way of any hustle and bustle. This was our second visit to the hotel and it was just as nice as the first visit. It is out of the way.... about 50km from Ponta Delgada. No shuttle from the airport in Ponta...

Hotel is small yet professionally run. Quirky decor which we liked. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Housekeeping very good. Breakfast entirely satisfactory, hot selection though typically basic and to be fair to the hotel we could not find really good coffee anywhere on the island. Small outdoor pool too cold to brave even in early June. Area is lovely and...

A little distant from the airport, located on the ocean but view could have been better. They were doing work on the sea wall so you saw cranes and heavy machinery. All in all the hotel itself was very clean and the staff super friendly and accommodating. Their morning breakfast was great. Would recommend this hotel as the rates were...

Very nice and helpful staff. Fantastic breakfast included in price of room. Air conditioned! We had a room with a balcony overlooking the street and ocean. The room was clean and comfortable. It's a nice quiet area with a small beach next to it, less than 5 minutes walking. I would stay there again for sure.
