A November stay, beautiful fresh weather, warm sunshine. Lots of fantastic tours to take. Villa Nova Hotel was amazing, Clean, large rooms. Lovely little balcony, where I enjoyed my morning coffee. Friendly, accommodating staff. Yummy breakfast. Close to the harbour, and all points of interest. Amazing value....I highly recommend this hotel for everyone.

Central location in walking distance to many restaurants, beautiful harbor and marina, historic sights, gardens, shopping, grocery shops and cafes. Very safe neighborhood and hotel staff very accommodating to assist in booking tours or whatever your needs were. Daily breakfast buffet presented choices of fresh fruit, baked goods, jams and eggs all fresh from Azores, excellent coffee and teas.

Part of a deal which included Breakfast daily and air fare. We were very satisfied with the hotel. The location was awesome and walking distance to many great restaurants and sights to see, as well as shopping. Very walkable area and inexpensive restaurants and bars. We will be going back!

Pleasantly surprised at the value. A nice modern hotel with a good sized room that was clean and bright in a good location. We walked to the city centre, Marina and restaurants from here.

Excellent quiet location and within a minute walk to downtown Ponta Delgata. Easy access to public transit within the city and the island. The only missing in room items are microwave, coffee maker and bathroom amenities. An excellent place to stay.

Great selection at the breakfast buffet. Hotel close to the harbor and city center. Bathroom with bathtub. Cheap hotel but still recommendable! Chairs and beach chairs dirty. Pool small and not inviting.
