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 lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
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, and 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 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.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).

눉The outdoor furniture on the terrace was old and worn, partially broken plastic furniture. Replace them! Several of the wooden cupboard were moisturized, change these! The cleaning was done twice a week which was insufficient. There was a lot of dust under the furniture, bed and where the quick cleaning did not come. Because it's a humid climate, bath towels, towels and kitchen towels need to be replaced more often, because the does not get dry and smells. The equipment in the kitchen was efficient. The number of clothes hanger was very limited, so we had to buy extra. Another shortcoming was that it was not possible to have both the table lamp and the wifi at the same time, there was just one contact. The bed was hard. Next to the accommodation there was a gym for the school which was also used until 22-23.00 every except Sunday, to what we do not know, but it was heard when they played very loud music. The whole building for the gym served as a huge resonance box. It was difficult to get vegetables in the restaurants. They served mostly fish or meat. No place for vegetarians! The weather was sad. It rained and blew for the most part of time (may), which made it all wet. The landscape was sad, most pastures with cows, forest plantations and invasive species. Of genuine native nature there were only a few percent, then mostly high up in the mountains where the fog hung heavily. On my trip to the tourist office, I read the ironic words "Azores - certified by nature." Although the island of Sao Miguel is green, I have never seen so little natural nature and flowers here. The flowers that you see along the roads are planted exotics, the naturally flowers are quick removed with grass trimmers. But the accommodation should not be charged for it.
눇The hotel area was large with flowering trees, pool and sun loungers. The pool was carefully cleaned daily. The terrace to the room was big. The stove and couches were new. Wifin worked well. There was a heater for the colder days. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. A good advantage was the free parking in the area. It had not been possible to park on the narrow streets. The food at the restaurants was good and reasonably priced. It is affordable to buy clothes.

눉Apt with hardly any utilities in kitchen, not even possible to make coffee or tea. We bought our own coffee machine in the supermarket. Poor beds with too small sheets.
눇It was a rather quiet place, with a nice (although cold) swimming pool.

눉If you like to watch TV, it is a very small one for such a big space. No Wi-Fi on the house, only on the reception.
눇Beautiful place with a good location but you will need a car. Really enjoyed the house, comfortable bed and spacious toilet. Very friendly staff on the reception but they are not there 24/7. We asked for extra blankets and shampoo samples and they were kind to give more. Parking spot for the car.

눉Just be aware when you book, that if you book an apartment you will not get one of the chalets as shown in most of the photos. The apartments are situated over the reception complex. We cannot understand the reviews saying how quiet it is as the apartments are situated next to a noisy gymnasium/sports hall which operates between 8:00am and 10:00pm. The apartments do not have any private outdoor space, but a shared terrace, with very basic plastic furniture. There were no basic appliances, such as a kettle, a toaster or an oven and the kitchen utensils were sparse. There was no air conditioning and if you opened the windows there was nothing to stop the fly's coming in.
눇The girl on reception was very helpful

눉The equipment in the villa is somewhat outdated and as a young family a car is an absolute must to visit more lively places than this quiet and peacefull town.
눇The villas are spacious and provide a lot of private area. The staff is very friendly and helpfull.

눇Good location - you do need a car to explore the island, though. Lots of space for kids to run around. Good choice of TV channels. Parking right in front of the house. Pool looks nice - was a bit cold outside for us to try it.
