Good points:
1. Perfect location, just on the beach
2. All rooms face the ocean, big terrase with 2 sun beds, 2 chairs and a table...it s heavenly
3. One can hear thr waves all night long
4. Free parking
5. Nice, polite, helpfull staff

Now the bad points:
1. Rooms: very old furniture, worn down....it needs to be thrown away, really!
2. Cleaning ladies pass everyday but, somehow, i still had a feeling i was in a filthy place
3. Bathroom: ok, clean..but with mold on the walls, disgusting shower curtin
4. Kichinette: OMG! Stay away! Even though it is clean, it seems disgusting
5. Breakfast: ok, not very good, but it will do the job.

To conclude: nice place, the interiors need to be entirely changed.
If you prefer a bit of luxury and comfort, stay away.
However, best relaxing terrase i ve ever seen, right next to the ocean.

We were allocated a room with a balcony which had a view of the ocean. The staff were very friendly and were always receptive to our requests. We had requested for a mid day tour and they were able to link us with a really good tour guide(all this was last minute).
Loved the place!!

Large, spacious, simply furnished no frills type of room with tiled floor and doors opening up onto a lovely terrace with table and chairs and sunloungers...right on the black sand beach....the sounds of the sea crashing (or lapping depending on the weather) on the shore. It's a lovely hotel, the Barracuda, with friendly staff and a homely bed and breakfast type feel to it (breakfasts are not a strong point, but they are simple and do the job). The rooms have little kitchens too with microwaves etc, so perfect if you're on a budget and need to eat in. Parking is right in front of the hotel, or just next to it, where there is a spacious car park. The area is popular with locals who come to relax on the sands, or surf, which can lend the place a fun atmosphere. There are some nice cafes and restaurants sprinkled just across the road from the hotel, and just down the beach. It's well-priced - with a very good location. You can walk to Ponta Delgada in around 30 minutes, taking a lovely coastal path. At night, chilling out in the room with a cup of tea and listening to the breathing of the ocean, we knew we'd found the right place to spend a few days. I'd certainly recommend 2 or 3 nights.

Room Tip: All face the ocean, so no one is better than the other!

This was a great spot for exactly what we needed. We liked having our own kitchen area. We enjoyed the sounds of the waves all night. Great balcony overlooking the beach. The beds were a little firm but totally fine. The location was excellent with a couple restaurants right across the street with amazing coffee which comes in handy because it is a little sad at the hotel. Breakfast was limited but fine. We would definitely stay again. I would recommend bringing your own coffee set up if that is important to you.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are on the beach and we loved that.

We stayed at the Barracuda in July. I can well recommend it, even though it has reached the stage where a small refit is on the cards. It has 21 rooms on 3 floors with the middle floor being ground level out onto the road. It is not fancy like some big hotels, but it makes up for this with homely comfort. The rooms are spacious enough with the main room divided by curtains to provide a bedroom for 2 with a lounge with a sofa bed for one more. It has a small separate kitchen with reasonable cupboards and work surface as well as a small microwave and a rather elderly 2 ring electric hob appliance. The appliances could be of a better and newer quality, but served our purpose as all we wanted was drinks. Continental breakfast was served in a pleasant room downstairs overlooking the beach of Praia De Malicias, and this beach was accessible directly from the hotel back steps. The staff are all dressed in whites (apart from the reception) and everything seems to be spotlessly clean. Cleaning is something they never seem to stop doing. When I wanted a hire car the reception was more than helpful, and negotiated a lower price for me than initally quoted as they knew the company. When I said I would photogragh the car on receipt and return they told me to make sure the company rep saw this to avoid the problems that a lot of people have been having on mainland Europe with big hire companies plundering customers credit cards for ficticious damage. The reception guy understood and was that extra bit helpful. Jim and Sandy Williamson

Room Tip: All the rooms face onto the beach, you can leave the balcony door open and go to sleep to the sound of the waves breaking onto the shore.
