Hotel do Colegio 4*

Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel Island, Azores

This traditional Azorean building was once a school. A former pupil (the current owner) beautifully restored the building and incorporated the college theme throughout the décor (hence the name “Colegio”). This hotel is in a good, central location and approximately 15 minutes walk to our boat base. Rooms are modern and come equipped with a minibar, air conditioning, TV, and private bathroom with hairdryer. The hotel has a good sized outdoor pool (not heated) located in the inner courtyard and there is free WIFI throughout. The hotel has a restaurant that serves a good buffet breakfast and signature cuisine, made from locally grown ingredients. There is free parking for guests in the hotel car park (for up to 8 cars on a first come first served basis). There is also on street parking  nearby for an extra fee. Guests can book double, twin and triple rooms and our solo guests are allocated double rooms for sole use.

It was a fabulous hotel and lived up to expectations in terms of interest, location, comfort and peace. – Richard Rose-Casemore May 2022
