“Amazing Views close to town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

Stayed here for 4 nights in early september in room #330. Our room had an incredible and private view of Mount Brazil, the pool and the ocean. We had a nice balcony and the room itself was clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast at the hotel was really good and the staff were super friendly (especially the bar staff) and everyone spoke English. The room that breakfast was in has great views and so does the bar which even has a large balcony with several tables and chairs. There is also a room with a pool table in it and a seperate room with couches and a TV.
The hotel has a huge salt water pool with really nice views, although it's not that deep. We ate at the pool bar and the food was very good (grilled fish). They also have an indoor pool but we never saw anyone use it as we had perfect weather for the outdoor pool. There is a small gym that seemed like it was hotter than a steam room so there was never anyone in there either.
The hotel is a short walk into town and if you prefer swimming in the ocean rather than a pool, there is a small, interesting, public swimming place with handrails leading into the sea about a 5 minute walk away. If you want late nightlife on weekends, there is a disco called Twins nearly across the street. We didn't have a computer so not sure about the wi-fi setup. We rented a scooter through the hotel which was no hassle and highly reccomended for checking out all the cool sites that Terceira has to offer. No question that if we come back here, we will stay in the Terceira Mar.





Very comfortable hotel.

Wonderful views from back balcony, and the European breakfast was wonderful!.......meats, breads, and juice.......yum! Close to Angra and all this wonderful town has to offer. Bed was a little uncomfortable, but it is my ONLY complaint about this wonderful place on a wonderful secluded island!

Rooms were spacious and well equipped. Views from the balcony over the pool and looking out to sea were lovely. Pool was large with a good poolside bar, only downside was it was very open so got a bit breezy at times and some, though not all, of the sunbeds had seen better days.
Breakfast was good as were snacks on the terrace bar. Restaurant was ok but a bit pricey for what is was, especially the buffet which was fine but not good value.
Fitness room was small with just cardio equipment that was almost unusable as it was so hot - with no ac on and just a window open this was hardly a surprise.
All in all though it was a good hotel and we enjoyed our stay there.

I`ve been threre last month and I loved all about it: the quiet surroundings, the ocean view, the lovely breakfast room and most of all the leisure areas. This hotel is very well equipped with indoor and oudoor swimming pools, hot tub, sauna, steam bath and health club.
If you are heading to the amazing Azores, stop by, and don't forget to take a dive in the ocean-side pool for me!

Stayed here as part of an island-hopping tour. How wonderful to have a room with such an amazing view across the pool to the sea and the headland opposite. The hotel is designed so that all rooms benefit from the same view, so no chance of single people being shunted off in a poky room overlooking the dustbins!
The exterior of the hotel looks a little tired, as do some of the furnishings, but when you've got a large balcony on which to relax, who's noticing?
Having read reviews of the Azores I was warned not to expect haute cuisine, so I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and variety of the food, and the drinks in the bar were reasonably priced.
It's a bit of a hike into the centre of the town, but there seemed to be many taxis available.
I'd definitely visit this hotel again - wish there were more like it elsewhere in the world!

Room Tip: All rooms have the same view and facilities.
