Casa das Palmerias

Casa das Palmerias

Casa das Palmeiras

Boutique Hotel, Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel Island, Azores

Just 10 minutes walk to our boat base, this charming hotel is one of our favourites. It was originally built in 1901 and has been recently renovated with great attention to restore the original features. The restoration has maintained the elegance and historical character of this grand house which was originally built for a member of the Portuguese royal family. Staying here is a real treat with high ceilings and immaculate bed linen and tasteful rooms looking out to the palm trees (from which the name Palmeiras is derived). It is set in a quiet historical part of the city conveniently located for the harbour and restaurants. Breakfast is a splendid buffet with fresh local produce: cereals, fruits, cheeses, breads and pastries as well as cooked dishes prepared by the resident breakfast chef. The house does not have a lift – your baggage will be taken to your room and collected.  There is parking and tea and coffee available all day.

All 10 rooms have have bright large windows looking out to the garden or city centre. Rooms feature air conditioning, heating, free WIFI, flat screen TV, towels, hair dryer and private ensuite bathrooms with a shower. Each room at the Casa das Palmerias is named after an endemic plant because of their botanical themed inspiration for the interior of the hotel. The design of each room is dedicated to the history of the Casa das Palmerias. The top floor has great view of the city and the ocean. The ground floor of the hotel welcomes you by their grand entrance hall and dining room.

Sao Miguel Park Hotel

Sao Miguel Park Hotel

Sao Miguel Park Hotel 4*

Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel Island, Azores

Our holidays on Sao Miguel Island all include 7 nights accommodation at the Sao Miguel Park Hotel ****  in the holiday price as standard (we also have a variety of other budget/upgrade accommodation options to choose from here)

We have personally chosen this beautiful 4-star hotel as our guest accommodation because of its excellent location and facilities. The location is a 15-minute walk to our base for the boats and the city’s beautiful botanical gardens are close by. The elevated position of the hotel means that the rooms are light, quiet and well-ventilated. Even though the hotel has great access to our boats, there are no busy roads nearby and the hotel is far away from the street noises familiar to seafront or busy city locations.

The hotel is ideal for families or large groups and rooms can easily accommodate up to two extra beds. Spacious rooms are sound proofed with air-conditioned and equipped with TV and fridge. There is the option to upgrade to sea/city view rooms (ask us for details). Adjacent rooms can be booked for families (note there are no interconnecting rooms at the Sao Miguel Park Hotel).

The hotel has a well equipped gym, indoor and outdoor pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, games room, bar, restaurant with sea views and free parking for guests. A good buffet breakfast is included. A buffet dinner is served from 19:00-21:30  every evening which costs approx 15 euros per person or 22 euros per person with unlimited wine & beer!  Room service is also available until 00:30 for soft meals.

The hotel was spotlessly clean, room comfortable and spacious, great balcony so we could let in fresh air too. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was good. Good location. – Claire Walmsley-Moss April 2022

The Sao Miguel Park Hotel really suited our needs. The room was large, even with 4 of us, and we had views of bats from the balcony, which the kids thought was great…Breakfast was great though, a really good selection. We made use of the indoor pool and it was often just us in there, which was a bonus! – Sally Smart April 2022
