The Hotel is beautifully sited by the sea. It felt to us like a cruise ship cabin with a spacious veranda. The staff was for the most part helpful and friendly, Eabut a few were indifferent and had a "why am I here " look on their faces, Very clean and quiet. The restaurant was nice, but the breakfast buffet...

We stayed here for a package booked through Azores Getaways. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The hotel overall was nice and rooms were comfortable. The room itself was very clean! There is some room noise from the hallways and adjoining rooms but not so bad that it is overall disruptive. I would stay here again without question.

We recently spent a week at this hotel and cannot find anything to complain about. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast had a great variety of foods, so that no one should go away hungry. Most importantly, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Possibly the only concern would be if someone had healthy problems and was unable...

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...

Plus we arrived in the morning and we're very pleased that we could get right to our room.Living area, walk out on balcony looking right at the ocean.

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...
