We were really looking forward to our stay especially after having read good reviews but we were disappointed. It is a beautiful building with charming gardens but to call it a hotel is nonsense. The restaurant was closed, tea and coffee should have been available 24 hours but wasn't. Our roomwas cold and breakfast was stingy. We had to repeatedly ask for more eggs, coffee and milk. Any request for help was met with a sigh. We can only guess that the owners were away as the service was non existent. No one bothered to even look up when we passed Reception and we felt as thought we were a nuisance. Such a shame. We understand the King of Spain once stayed there and maybe the 'hotel' is now just resting on its laurels.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Quinta das Merces - A secret place at the Atlantic Ocean. The Country House - Quinta das Mercês is ideally situated in the protected area of Mount Brasil, in Island Terceira, Azores. It grows from the sea line through the interior within an area of about 35,000 square meters. It gathers the ocean influence with a dense extension of Atlantic woods wrapping an architectural set of great historical and cultural value. The farm roots go back to the XVIth century when the actual farm tenant’s house was built. In the XVIIth century was raised the Manor House to which, in the same century, was added the chapel in all alike a small church. The House and the Chapel are the nucleus of one of the last examples of the Feudal Architecture on the surrounds of the city of Angra do Heroismo. The outside space, with deep connection to the sea, was valorised through a careful landscape architectural project witch faithfully kept the original line of the land, implementing selective areas of leisure. It is a multifaceted space directed to an exacting and qualified tourism demand. The interaction with the sea allows practicing numerous sports in the open wide Atlantic and the dense woods invite to share a relaxing environment. The Country House Quinta das Merces is a unique space where nature perfectly combines with a rich historical patrimony, giving the pleasure of an unforgettable experience. ... more less
