The San Miguel Park Hotel in Ponta Delgada was very fine location for our six-night stay in early March. It is clean, modern, well-equipped and efficient. They offered early check-in (very early since our flight arrived at 7am) and honored an email request for a top-floor room. The room had two twin beds pushed together (I think they offer some doubles), and had a few condition issues which did not affect our use, though there was no clock in the room. There is a safe and small refrigerator. The bathroom was large and comfortable with plenty of hot water, but bring your own conditioner and tissues. We paid to have wi-fi in room about $37 for the week, otherwise you can use wi-fi or the computers in the lobby for free.
Breakfast was included and is good quality and plentiful, served buffet style in a white-tablecloth ballroom. If you don't like the European-style offerings there is cereal, yogurt, fruit, scrambled eggs, pastries, local jam, etc. It is a much higher quality than most US hotels' continental breakfast.
There is a well-equipped gym and we used the sauna and steam room (Turkish bath) which were excellent. The indoor and outdoor pools looked nice (you must use a bathing cap so bring one or pay 5 euros at the hotel). The Jacuzzi was not hot but very bubbly. I think the facilities are used as a health club by locals which may affect level of crowding.
The hotel is quiet and has free parking. You can walk to the main part of town and many restaurants in less than ten minutes, and it is a 20 minute walk to marinas for whale-watching. Also in walking distance, Jardem Antonio Borges (Garden), Gruta do Carvao (Cave), Fort Sao Bras and Military Museum, and the beautiful squares and churches.
