Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉Other guests that smoked on their balcony... Cigarette smoke drifted into our room and we often had to close our door-such a shame as we enjoyed the sound and breezes of the ocean. Maybe the room was a little outdated but nothing to worry about.
눇Amazing location with beautiful oceanfront view. Lovely pool. Pretty good breakfast buffet. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We would go back again and recommend to family and friends.

눉Would have liked to make tea in our room in the morning but this is not usually offered on the island so not really a great problem
눇Beautiful location and complete relaxation. Excellent staff and the food was very good. We loved the peace and quiet.

눉Our flight was late arriving and it would have been nice to have been able to get a hot drink on arrival. I understand that some flights are regularly late so this must be an issue for many people. I don.t know if this is something that is mentioned to you
눇the choice of foods for breakfast was very good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and had a lovely sea view.

눉The prices are quite higher than expected. I've had much better food on the island for a fraction of the cost so made sure to eat out the other times. The room having 2 single beds rather than 1 large.
눇The view from our room was the best.

눉The restaurant was ok, I wouldn't want to eat there more than once though due to lack of atmosphere - yes you get a beautiful view, but not much substance (although you have to expect that from a hotel, to a point). Bar Caloura was great, but not much else around for choice. Maybe Booking.com should add an Atmosphere rating?
눇Beautiful location. Lovely views and pool!
July 3, 2016
눇Staff was wonderful and helped with everything we asked for. The location is amazing atop a cliff at the edge of Caloura overlooking the ocean with private paths down directly to the water. The food situation could be improved a bit - free breakfast was very good but the only option for dinner is buffet dinner for 27 EU/person and the choices were often some type of fried fish. There is a snack bar which is good but limited - and I would have liked to see more local cuisine offered. They definitely cater more towards a British-style clientele. You can get a great meal on this island easily for around 15-20 EU/person but you will need a car as the village is very quaint. The pool was wonderful. Wish the gym had a bit more to it but I imagine the average person staying here probably doesn't use it too much.

눉Nothing as such apart from outdoor pool being very cold. The mattresses on the beds could do with upgrading, preferably without a plastic mattress cover. Having said that we hope to be back next year.
눇Virtually everything and tennis court was a bonus but bring your own racquets

눇Psuedo remote location between Ponta Delgado and Furnas. I loved that it sat on the beach and every view was amazing. The staff was super helpful and genuinely friendly. I would stay again and recommend it to all my friends

눉Would have liked tea / coffee making facilities in the room and free safe.
눇Beautiful location, excellent breakfast, large room with stunning views. Lovely public areas.

눉There were some strangers dark hair pieces in the bathroom when we arrived and throughout the hole stay
눇The view was to die for :) Staff was super smiling and polite.

눉Little not to like but the coffee and orange juice at breakfast rather poor. Nitpicking, but waterproof sheet on bed uncomfortable and hot. Great introduction to the Azores for us - we will be back!
눇Position, friendliness of staff, cleanliness and general aura of the hotel. Plenty of parking and a peaceful location.

눉My brother and I wanted to use the fitness room but the equipment was broken and there wasn't even weights for a proper workout. Another thing is that there is no cosy feeling in the evening whatsoever, because they lack lamps in the garden and the existing lamps in the facilities are very cold and ugly. So when you look out through the windows you'll only see blackness.
눇The location on the cliffs was perfect and the rooms were big enough. The food was good and the service as well.
October 15, 2015
눉the room we were given was a very big disappointment, it was in a very poor location, on ground floor and no view, although we paid for a sea view room all we could see was a wall!

눇A very lovely hotel at a location with an amazing view. Access to a great beach. Good if you want to get away from it all. Will need a rental car as there is nothing around.
