Our visit to Sao Miguel and the Funas Boutique Hotel was amazing. The island itself is so incredibly beautiful. I was hesitant to be so far from Ponta Delgada, but when we arrived at Funas I knew we had made the perfect choice! The staff couldn't have been more friendly, helpful and accommodating! They even took my trekking poles to their maintenance folks to fix them for me when they wouldn't collapse to fit in my bag when we were leaving!
The beds are very comfortable (a memory foam topper would complete them, tho - I'm just spoiled at home ;). The room and the amenities were great - bottled water (as much as you want) and a couple of local beverages were always in the little mini refrigerator and restocked each day or when requested. The shower is awesome, too! Loved our room. We had a room on the first floor just off the lobby. The beauty of this room was that you could open the door to the courtyard behind the hotel, which was surrounded by a big white wall, allowing fresh air in and absolutely no one was ever in the courtyard, so very private even with the door open (room 103).
The spa was amazing - the pools, the steam room and sauna were so welcome after a day of sightseeing and hiking. Can't say enough good about this area!
Breakfast! What can I say? It was simply amazing each and every morning. Everything and anything you could want. My favorite thing was the HOT cream they brought for the excellent coffee. I want to go there right now and eat!! ;)
Dinners were also exceptional. We ate 4 of the 6 nights we were there and the one and only disappointment was the sweet potato soup (absolutely flavorless). Everything else we ordered was truly exceptional, including the wonderful local wines.
I would go back here in a heartbeat and highly recommend this hotel to anyone!
