We were in one of the garden rooms, which was large enough and with an ensuite. Sadly the shower has one of those plastic curtains that make it impossible to keep the water inside, but apart from the bathroom was very nice. The bed was our only disappointment. Very nice to look at, but old and wooden and hence creaked...

We stayed here for a walking holiday. The building is an old manor house, nicely restored by a German couple who emigrated to the Azores twenty years ago. The restoration took in the gardens, which are also lovely. This is not a luxury retreat but our room was nevertheless spacious, with plenty of storage (not too may drawers but the...

Pretty building, plenty of parking, nice pool and gardens. Feels a bit dated but that's part of the charm. Would have liked a room safe and wifi in room. Toiletries not replenished. Often no hot water in room out of normal hours. Efficiently administered by owner Gabriele with the help of staff especially the very pleasant Olga; both of them...

Returning for a second visit, the weather was far from kind but the welcome and service form Olga Saozhina Gabriela and Gerd was excellent. It remains a beautiful secluded place to stay and relax. There are extensive grounds and a small pool and plenty of parking. Wifi is available in the lounge and reception areas. Compared with other hotels we...

A lovely old villa updated and exuding old world charm efficiently run by a nice German couple I will definitely return and plan to within the next year. Beautiful grounds within walking distance of a quaint village where most everything you need can be found. One drawback was the absence of credit cards for payment hopefully that has changed but...

We stayed her for 5 nights in September and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and aim to be back. It is a beautiful old manor house but the service and food is as good as you could want. The owners were away for the first few days but in their absence Olga looked after us regally. Nothing was too much trouble...

Solar de Lalem is a small traditional style hotel/guest house with very comfortable rooms - spacious, all en suite, with Portuguese style furnishings and atmosphere, although the proprietors are actually German and speak very good English. It is friendly and relaxed and there is a small pool although the weather did not tempt us to swim. There is a bar...

Out of the blue, my wife had suggested a short break in the Azores. I thought, 'why not?'. So we found ourselves very late one night at Ponta Delgado Airport, with a hire car and vague directions to reach Maia on the other side of the island in the dark, and a totally unknown hotel. Amazingly, the proprietors, Gabriele and...

This is an old building so does not offer modern amenities but what it does offer is a place to really relax. This old mansion house is stone-built with high ceilings so has a cool and spacious feel about it. The surrounds are very quiet and peaceful, helped by a view of the sea from the garden. The owners and...

Our first three nights in the Azores were spent here. Very friendly reception from Olga and the other members of staff. The owners were very attentive. Had a great meal in, on the last night. Made to feel very welcome. The accommodation was basic, but clean and well maintained. I have some fond memories of this place, including my first...
