Nick and Chris have got this exactly right. We felt very much at home from the moment we arrived, and loved the guest pavilion with its honesty bar and coffee machine, which allowed us to come and go as we pleased and chat to other guests and our hosts about the day's adventures. Roberto, our driver for the 5 days...

My wife and I are budget travelers, but we had to try Quinta Do Mar just once! We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. Nick and Chris are the perfect hosts, and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. I say they went out of their way, but they made it seem effortless and a pleasure to...

It would be hard going to improve on this hotel - all the benefits of a hotel with all the comforts of an exclusive private villa. The hosts, Nick, Chris, Gilda and Roberto, make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive and from the moment you are picked up from the airport you know you have arrived...

The only thing my boyfriend and I regret about staying here was that it was only for 1 night. Beautiful setting with fantastic hosts! They gave us great suggestions for things to do and places to eat with the limited time we had and were a lot of fun to just sit and chat with. The rooms were very comfortable...

During our visit to Sao Miguel we stayed in a couple of standard **** hotels. After these stays we went to Quinta do Mar for the last period of the visit. This showed up to be highly recommendable. The room was in excellent condition with a beautiful view of the Atlantic. The common areas was of even better quality with...

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...
