Nice hotel, not so far from San Mateus, a typical fishing village. The owner and her daughter are very nice, available for advice and for a small chat. Breakfast is delicious. I didn't use the facilities like the gym or the swimming pool; but I think they are simply great. I really recommend it

The positives: absolutely beautiful old building, very charming, fantastic courtyard for breakfast (which was very good), old walled gardens to explore, and certainly the funkiest tennis court I've ever played on. Quiet, peaceful, lovely antique furnishing, really unique place. Negatives: beds uncomfortably hard, wifi only in the common areas, old key system while charming is a pain very quickly. Would...

The quinta is a wonderful building next to the sea. A great infinty pool cools you down on hot days. The living rooms are tastefully decorated and home to the wifi lovers. Great breakfast inside or in the garden. Maria is a great host. When you drive from Angra the entrance is a bit hard to notice. So watch out...

All around wonderful property. It is family run so there are some quirks. The grounds and setting are spectacular. Although it is right off of the road the compound is beautifully landscaped and connected to the water. It has old-world charm and as do the owners Patricia and Maria who were very hospitable. The place is well decorated and appointed,...

Just like other travelers we had some difficulties finding the Quinta with Google Maps and once on the right road along the ocean, it was only in the last meters that we saw the sign of this beautiful Quinta. It is not situated in Angra do Heroismo itself, but closer to Sao Mateus. Don't expect a traditional hotel building, but...

This is a beautiful Quinta located by the ocean. It is a renovated old monastery with bags of character. If you would like to stay where the current Spanish King and Queen stayed then this is it! There is a great pool, big grounds, lovely chapel, beautiful lounge ares with antique furniture. Our hosts were very helpful but I wish...

...but a country residence. It should have a restaurant (as stated in the reservation) but it doesn't. If you want to have dinner, you can only order it 24h in advance. Worst is that rooms open from the outside if unlocked, so if you are used to any hotel, which a door can only be opened from the outside with...

This is a stunning house with lovely views out to sea from the front terrace. It was beautifully kept with a high standard of service.

The location is great. We stayed there to visit the island on our 10 day trip through the Azores. Great place, wonderful decorated. It's a mansion, and we stayed there by ourselves. Perfect price value! Even if the location is close to the main road, it is quiet, and you look straight onto the ocean

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quinta das Merces - A secret place at the Atlantic Ocean. The Country House - Quinta das Mercês is ideally situated in the protected area of Mount Brasil, in Island Terceira, Azores. It grows from the sea line through the interior within an area of about 35,000 square meters. It gathers the ocean influence with a dense extension of Atlantic woods wrapping an architectural set of great historical and cultural value. The farm roots go back to the XVIth century when the actual farm tenant’s house was built. In the XVIIth century was raised the Manor House to which, in the same century, was added the chapel in all alike a small church. The House and the Chapel are the nucleus of one of the last examples of the Feudal Architecture on the surrounds of the city of Angra do Heroismo. The outside space, with deep connection to the sea, was valorised through a careful landscape architectural project witch faithfully kept the original line of the land, implementing selective areas of leisure. It is a multifaceted space directed to an exacting and qualified tourism demand. The interaction with the sea allows practicing numerous sports in the open wide Atlantic and the dense woods invite to share a relaxing environment. The Country House Quinta das Merces is a unique space where nature perfectly combines with a rich historical patrimony, giving the pleasure of an unforgettable experience. ... more   less
