Wonderful resort with beautiful scenery and modern feel

Because this was a family vacation, this hotel provided a great amount of space, amenities and was located in a more remote but more adventurous part of São Miguel. We loved the outdoor infinity pool and also having the option of an indoor pool too for when it rains (and it will rain daily just for a few hours). There is also a sauna and steam room that also was nice to relax in. The restaurant and bar area was spacious and beautiful, it was nice to relax there to grab a drink, eat, and also play pool. Lastly, the breakfast was really great with a lot of options of fruit, meats, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, fried eggs and even baked beans, mushrooms and roasted tomatoes. The best was the fresh squeezed orange and passion fruit juices. Our room was a nice size and we loved the vicinity as it felt more like being a local than a tourist.

Pedras do Mar offers oceanfront views within 20 minutes from the city. The view is quite beautiful and guest can admire it from ocean view rooms and the or the outdoor pool/bar area. The hotel is clean, and the staff is friendly, attentive and helpful. If you are unsure of where to spend your day, the staff will gladly help guide you to the islands top tourist sights. The option of indoor an outdoor pools was also a pleasant surprise as rain is common in the island and we caught quite a bit of it. Breakfast is included. Guests may head to the lower level of the hotel to find a wonderful breakfast buffet offering regional breads, fruits, cheeses, yogurt and desserts. Guests also have the options of eggs, bacon, beans, sausages, pancakes, and cereal. Coffee, tea, and fresh juices are also available. The only complaint I have is the bar/restaurant. When traveling to a new country guests want to experience and taste the local cuisine. The offerings at the bar/restaurant are presented beautifully but do not provide guests with the true taste of the island. The cost is also quite high compared to local restaurants both in the villages and the Ponta Delgada.

The rooms are lovely and spotless. Definitely get an ocean view side room. That view never gets old. We didn’t mind the glass walls in the bathroom because we are a couple traveling but for families or non-romantic travel companions this might be odd. The pools and sauna were very nice and there are enough loungers outside for everyone who wants one, but not enough umbrellas for shade, so get there early or go later in the day if you want shade. The restaurant is the only drawback to this place. You have to make a reservation, because even though the place looks empty sometimes, they are understaffed and thus at capacity. We made a 9pm dinner reservation around 7:30 and waited at the bar with a cocktail. During this time, the manager was openly yelling at his employees while we waiting for a table. We were seated at 9, but no one came to take our order until 9:30, and we didn’t get food until 10. Very slow service, but the servers were apologetic and the linguine and stuffed chicken we ended up with were truly delicious. The Sunday buffet on the other hand is junk. Don’t do it no matter how convenient. There are better places on the island. The front desk staff is extremely helpful and parking is easy.

The pool is amazing. Set apart about 20 min from the airport. Perfect location.

Hotel was very clean and staff were very nice. Breakfast was great with many options. Location is great and has nice small walking path with beautiful views. The indoor and outdoor pools are well kept. No complaints. Had a small playground that was perfect for my 2 year old.

Ocean front balcony rooms have stunning Atlantic Ocean views. Delicious all you can breakfast buffet and plenty of free parking. Heated indoor and outdoor pools, steam and sauna all clean. Cliff side walking trail overlooking ocean and green grass fields with cows make this a quiet relaxing location off the highway but surrounded by spectacular views of farms ocean and mountains. This is a modern facility with a roof covered in solar panels. Good bar at restaurant for a nightcap. Must have a car since it’s in a small town but easy to get on highway to Ponta Delgada.

The property is ok, nothing specil though. But the trip is not over yet! Our flight back was delayid several times and then canceled all together. We are still not rebooked and have no idea when we will get home.

Modern facilities with all the accoutrements. The staff are helpful and very friendly. The spa experience was so enjoyable, I returned for more!! For those who are concerned about the glass bathroom walls, they have been covered. The hotel location is away from the hubbub and quite beautiful and peaceful. I will be back soon!!

Infinity pool looks very nice, but it is not really for swimming.

Very nice place to stay that won’t brake the bank. It’s a good point out of town thats perfect for a relaxing stay. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food if fantastic. Make sure you rent a car to explore the island.
