We stayed here for six nights as part of a Travelzoo deal. We loved our room with views of the fort and the waves crashing against the cliffs. The hotel staff was very helpful to us in giving advice, getting taxis and restaurant reservations. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and saved us lots of time. Just be aware that the...

We came for an untraditional spring break with 2 boys ages 7 and 10. They did not have two rooms with connecting doors so they upgraded us to one executive suite. We had two stories with a loft, 2 bedrooms, and a full bath. The lower level had a living space and full bathroom. The room was very nice and...

My mom and I stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights. The view from our room was beautiful, the staff extremely friendly, and the restaurant served delicious food. Our room was very dated - mold in the bathrooms, and the beds were INCREDIBLY uncomfortable. The location is also a bit outside of Angra, so not very convenient.

I thoroughly enjoyed my week at this hotel. All the staff was very accomodating, which was extremely appreciated after the flight from Boston. We had an amazing room; 225. WONDERFUL view of the pool and ocean. Everything in our room as it should be. I have to say that the shower was AMAZING. Such great water pressure. AND the water...

The staff of the hotel are lovely. Even the cleaning lady (born and raised in California), was charming and helpful. That made a big difference. The views from the hotel room balconies and the restaurant are great. The breakfast is OK - could be more variety of fruit. The dinner buffet was surprisingly good. The rooms are OK, but look...

Hotel do Caracol is wonderful place to stay on Terceira. The staff is friendly and helpful with activity recommendations. We upgraded to a sea view room with a small balcony - great view to wake up to! The hotel also served a fantastic breakfast each morning with a variety of foods including Azorean cheeses and jams. The walk to the...

I like this hotel with fantastic view to the ocean and mountain. I was there several times and always great! Just when the weather is rainy and cold you can feel cold in room. Amazing gym with lessons. Great breakfast with local food fresh cheese! Nice and helpful staff.

Hotel do Caracol, located on Terceira, one of nine Azorean islands, my husband and I were able to check in upon arrival and upgrade to the best view in the house; thanks to the extraordinary Front Desk/Guest Services Carla Fonseca! Unlike the other rooms, our room had a balcony and side windows that overlooked the ocean. The side windows also...

This hotel is on the Azorean island of Teircera, in the lovely main town of Angra do Heroismo. It is just outside the city center and overlooks a pretty little cove. There is on-site parking, and it is a pleasant roughly 2 kilometer walk, maybe 30 minutes (with a few small hills), into the center of town. The hotel itself...

The Hotel is beautifully sited by the sea. It felt to us like a cruise ship cabin with a spacious veranda. The staff was for the most part helpful and friendly, Eabut a few were indifferent and had a "why am I here " look on their faces, Very clean and quiet. The restaurant was nice, but the breakfast buffet...
