The customer service here was great. They helped us book a room for just the day since we had an 8+ hour layover and we wanted a place to take a shower and nap. The rooms are clean, but a bit dated. The water pressure in the shower is fantastic! Really close to the fort and old Ponta Delgada. We...

Dear Mr. superdeluxe23, We were extremely pleased by your comments and compliments about the comfort of the room and pressure of the shower. Besides these, we your comments about the equipment of the hotel and the noise of the aircrafts have been taken into the very best consideration. About the latter, our location is the closest to the airport and...

Only one coffeemachine is not enough when all people want to have breakfast but the staff was trying very hard to solve this problem. I missed a German TV program. The furniture in my room was of high Quality and the staff was very friendly.

Just spent a week in the Vila Nova hotel in room 303 it was great. Looking over the pool it also had side views to the ocean and was great for sitting in the late afternoon sun (you might want to preorder seats for your balcony as they aren't automatically there).

After staying at Hotel Vila Nova, we felt that the reviews and our travel agent missed the mark. Nova means "no go" and here are a few reasons we might recommend looking at other lodging options in Ponta Delgada. This hotel is situated on the edge of the Sao Miguel airport. Starting bright and early until late at night, you...

Our stay at Villa Nova was great. It was a bit off the beaten path but not that far. We were able to walk every where we wanted. The staff were amazing. They answered all our questions, gave us ideas, and were full of extra information. The breakfast was perfect for the start of every day.
