wife signal too weak
The hotel has a beautiful site. The sea view from the balconies is excellent. The swimming in the "Porto da Silveira" is very nice
The hotel is a bit far from the city center.It should have a free shuttle bus to take the guests to the city.
Very good location. Parking available in front. Some of the staff were very helpful, and would even come with me (in Portuguese style) to show me where something was located on the grounds.
Internet did not work, very slow and unusable. Check in and out was tedious and very slow. Not enough staff and too slow.
The friendliness of the staff. The relax atmosphere of the place. The stunning landscape out of our window, and the possibility of good food at the restaurant.
Nice place, wonderful breakfirst, very nice staff, and very good location.
All the employers were extremely nice
The Spa is not a real Spa, it is a Health Club with some Spa services. The pool inside is located in a closed room, without windows, it is not a pleasant place.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Their wellness center was wonderful and very professional. Their physical therapist was so helpful with helping one of our family members with her injury to her leg during a sightseeing.
The parking garage was difficult to navigate in and out due to tight turns. I would recommand renting smaller cars. We had SUV's because of the number of our party (9 family members)
The hotel facilities were great. I loved the private parking garage. The location is awsome for a city trip. The rooms are nice but not accorded to a 4-star hotel.
The staff at the arrival were very unpolite. Adding - no smiles. The bar/restaurant service was awful. We waited one hour for our dinner/meals to be served, plus it didn't come all we asked for on the dish and it seemed that we were forgotten the whole meal. There weren't so many people in the dining room to justify it. It lacks employees? Maybe yes! The breakfast isn't so good: it lacks variety, scrambled eggs seemed like milk - crumbled, fresh fruit were dehydrated and in all of our stay we had pick ourselves the plates knifes and forks for our breakfast!
Nice location by the seaside, next to the Angra city center (10 mn walking distance).
Service in the restaurant was average, the breakfast buffet was basic, the hotel is close to a noisy environment (disco nearby), overall the value for money is far from the best in Terceira
Nice and clean rooms, garden view is also great, nice swimming pool outside, friendly personel
The hotel has an inside pool, which is lit by natural daylight during the day. If you want to swim in the evening and ask the personel to put on the light, you are informed that you need to wear a swim cap which costs 5 euro.
Location (both for a swim in the ocean right next door, and 5 min from downtown by car); Restaurant food; Reception staff and responsiveness.
Staff responsiveness in room service and restaurant (w/ honorable exceptions); No wi-fi in our room (free wi-fi could be found near the reception, otherwise in room, hotel documentation informed paid wi-fi access that was never available).
