We stayed at Furnas Lake Villas for four nights during the second half of our trip to Sao Miguel. The first part of our trip we stayed in an apartment in Ponta Delgada. The Furnas Lake Villas provided a quiet and peaceful change of pace. The villas are modern and well-equipped. We ate breakfast each morning in the restaurant and had the cozido dinner one evening. It was fun to catch a ride with Miguel to pick up our pot from the caldeiras. The breakfasts and dinner were delicious and the service was wonderful. All the staff we encountered were gracious hosts and very friendly. Miguel helped us with a few dinner reservations during our stay - both of his recommendations were fantastic!

Furnas Lake Villas serve as a great base for sightseeing on the eastern side of Sao Miguel. I highly recommend the resort!

Staff were helpful and friendly. Food at the restaurant was quite good, but you need to choose what you want for dinner the night before or the night of, which is a little awkward. The location was good, a short walk to Furnas Lake. The grounds are pretty but the view is just of other villas. While we were there they were constructing more villas, which was a bit loud. Pool was nice looking but not heated so no one used it. I would recommend walking over to the nearby Gardens that border the lake.

Hi,

Thanks very much for your feedback. Our restaurant is open to our guests any time everyday. It must be booked in advance so we know how many people and what kind of meals they are having (for example, the hot-spring experience needs 5 hours to be cooked under the heat of the volcano).

We have reached or final stretches on the constructions and there is no more outside sounds around.

Hope we can host you some other time soon,

Best wishes,

Miguel Alves

From the moment we arrived at Furnas Lake Villas, we felt at peace. The warm and gracious staff, outstanding food and wine, modern and lovely architecture, and stunning landscape made this property the perfect escape. We would highly recommend the property for those seeking a rejuvenating experience! A huge thank you to our new friends at the Lake Villas!

We arrived at 7am into Ponta Delgada and drove to Furnas, thinking we'd drop off our bags and kill some time around the lake or in town before we could check in. While our villa wasn't ready that early in the morning, the Furnas Lake Villas folks cooked breakfast for us and made us feel at home immediately. We stayed only 2 nights of our 8-night trip, but it was by far our favorite hotel on the island. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, the villa was clean and modern with every amenity we needed, the cozido dinner (delivered and set up in our villa for us) was delicious, and wine on the patio of the main building was very relaxing. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Get the breakfast included with your stay. It's a great value, and you get a lot for the price. Their bolo levedo is incredible.

I LOVED this hotel! I didn’t actually want to leave. The rooms are beautiful and the staff are all super nice (they even booked my canyoning trip for me). The food was some of the best I had on the island. Breakfast was definitely worth the 14 euros. It was so much food, I generally didn’t end up eating lunch. I had 2 dinners here, which were also really good. One note- you have to book dinner in advance. The hotel is great for exploring the central and eastern parts of the island. I stayed 2 nights in Ponta Delgada after this and wished I had stayed here the whole time. Hope to come back again!
