The hotel itself is lovely and comfortable for the most part. The only problems I had were with the shower and my bed. The bathroom could use a little revamping as it's just a stall with no back so you end up getting water all over the floor unless you put towels down. As for my bed, I was staying...

The hotel is set in an incredible location with the garden on the back door step. The hotel itself, probably luxury by azores standards but fairly average by western standards, although the indoor spa area was nice. The sheets were not cotton, and therefore I woke up rather sweaty! The hotel did feel it was lacking in atmosphere being low...

This is a wonderful hotel with excellent service and the most amazing thermal pool in the garden. We used the spa and enjoyed walking in the surrounding area. Having a balcony overlooking the botanical garden was a real bonus. I would just recommend changing the dinner menu more often.

Had just one night at this wonderful hotel. Staff exceptional, room was great and the gardens and thermal spa very special. Dinner and breakfast at the hotel was excellent. Having use of the thermal pool after 5;00 PM and before 10:00 AM was terrific because you virtually had it to your self.

It was a wonderful experience to stay at this hotel. The location is perfect: right in the beatiful Terra Nostra Park, with 24/7 access to the park, including the natural hot water pools. You can get up, as I did, put on the bathrobe and towel provided by the hotel, and walk right onto the park and then into the...

The Terra Nostra Garden Hotel is a fine property located in Furnas. The rooms were of a nice size, with a good view (Garden View room), and the hotel has nice public spaces. The hotel positions itself as upscale, and certainly is for the Azores, but expectations are everything and the property did fall short of ours in a few...

Every taxi driver and tour guide we encountered in Sao Miguel told us this was their favorite hotel. We have to agree. We stayed several nights and the hotel is a retreat from the hustle of city life. We appreciated the quiet elegance of the dining room and the cuisine from breakfast to chef's menu was excellent! The wait staff...

(Almost) everything in this hotel is as it should be for a relaxing vacation. The rooms and interior decoration are very nice, and bring back the athmosphere of the 30's. The breakfast is a delight: fried eggs and omelettes are made to order, juice is fresh, ... Access to the gardens is a nice plus. It's cool to go for...

My friends and I enjoyed a three night stay at Terra Nostra Garden Hotel. It was a lovely hotel; very clean and the staff were extraordinarily attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience in the hotel restaurant. We ordered the chef's "discovery menu" and were pleasantly surprised by each of the five courses and wine pairings. We would return in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Today, the Azores Islands can relish in the grand re-opening of their most famous hotel, newly renovated. Terra Nostra Garden Hotel reopens to the public after extensive renovations reclassified as a 4-star property, positioning itself as one of the top hotels in Portugal. Located in Furnas Valley, on S. Miguel Island, Terra Nostra Garden Hotel is nestled in one of the World's best "Green Retreats," as deemed by Conde Nast Traveler - the 18th century Terra Nostra Garden exudes a breathtaking atmosphere of exoticism and mysticism in perfect harmony with nature. Opened since 1935, a time when the Azores Islands entered the international travel circuit for those seeking unique experiences, Terra Nostra Garden Hotel reopens with the same charming aura and exclusivity of the past, bringing you 86 rooms split between two buildings, maintaining its architectural history: the Art Deco Wing, built in the 1930's and the Garden Wing, added in the 1990's. The hotel's interior design concept stems from the Art Deco style, and introduces contemporary elements and materials, creating comfort and exclusivity perfectly integrated with the lush Terra Nostra Garden. The new Wellness areas are available and improved upon, making this hotel the perfect spotyou're your special events, taking into consideration the tremendous potential of Furnas Valley with theme-oriented activities, as a retreat getaway and so much more. In addition to the renovation, Terra Nostra Garden Hotel highlights Azorean products, focuses on the Furnas Cozido experience (a sustainable meal fully cooked underground with the heat of the volcanic hot springs) and the importance of protecting Furnas's unique environmental resources. The new Terra Nostra Restaurant offers a vast array of wine choices and delectable menu, up to par with the expectations of any wine connoisseur or avid foodie, who will appreciate the impeccable service and ambiance this restaurant has always had. Come stay with us at Terra Nostra Garden Hotel and you will have an unforgettable wellness experience, leaving you with memories to last a lifetime. ... more   less
