We stayed one week at this hotel and honestly could not imagine why some visitors report back negatively. We loved our room which was a garden view, but we could see and hear the ocean from our balcony. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was very clean and staff changed our towels even when we meant...

We arrived here with our gate 1 tour group. Pleasant lodgings & great staff. Location was walking distance to town & bus pick up right outside for 30cents EACH! Note no bus service on Sundays. We finally figured that one out. Clean & nice restaurant. Our daily breakfast buffet got a bit tiring - same thing every day. I suggested...

The Hotel do Caracol has an excellent location near Angra and Monte Brasil. Rooms have fine views with balconies, bath, shower, refrigerator, excellent wi-fi, and more. Indoor and outdoor pools and fine access for ocean swimming are pluses. The whirlpool and sauna were broken the entire week I stayed. The restaurant offers several fine buffets and an included full breakfast...

We stayed here as part of a package. The hotel was very nice! The rooms were clean, the staff was polite and helpful, the breakfast spread was wonderful and included lots of local foods such as cheese and jam. It has a fitness center, and an indoor and outdoor pool. Unfortunately we didn't get to take advantage of them, but...

The Hotel do Caracol was modern with a large encompassing hot breakfast buffet each morning. The staff was fluent in English and always quite pleasant and ready to help in any way with requests. The rooms were spotless and housekeeping staff extraordinary. My trip was made complete by hiring a private guide, Gui Bruges from Azores38n.com who had exchanged numerous...

We stayed here for a week on our honeymoon. The staff is amazing and very helpful. Breakfast buffet had more choices than any other European breakfast I've seen. Location is great with the ocean access. 10-15 minute walk to town which isn't too bad. We made use of the bus many times. It's cheap and easy (.30). Also took cabs...

Thanks to the Azorian government for sponsoring part of this great 6 day event as a part of their marketing for "off season". It was a great trip and the hotel was welcoming and ready for us at 8am in the morning, letting us hop into a nap soon after arrival. The included breakfasts are warm and more than adequate...

Great views, VERY comfortable place. Close to everything. Has all the amenities you need. Spa was great for my wife and I. Probably take a pass on the restaurant there. Parking can be tight there. Cleaning service is very good
