    Our bedroom window was on the road and in the morning it was noisy because of the cars and trucks driving by. They have a really amazing park, but unfortunately it is completely abandoned and so not as beautiful as it could be with a little more care.

    Very big and comfortable room, good breakfast, nice swimming pool.

    The restaurent wasn't good, but neither have any other restaurents or bistros we have visited on the Azores been - they all serve low quality pommes frites from a frost bag which disqualyfies any restaurent from being associated with gourme.

    Breakfast is good and quite complete.
    • Leisure trip

    Well, one of the worst hotels I ever been, why: 1) The house (we stayed in a "bungalow" note, nº118) in fact looks lovely. All white, nice looking bed and living room, until... You sat on the bed and feel all the metal and bumps of the "amazing" mattress (really hurt my back, and i'm thin!). 2) We asked on booking for a double bed, of course we got 2 terrifying twin beds in stead. Ah yes, we booked for 3 nights and we were kindly suggested to change room only in the last night (well thank you). 3) Here comes the funny part. Considering that the main actual function of an hotel -> providing a place for sleep <- was already failed, what else could we put up with? Let's see... 4 cockroaches! yes :) the first 2 ones, "ok i see you're there, i don't care" (yes we killed it). well the 3 one, decided to jump between my clean clothes (inside the bag which was over the floor) and of course to my clean NECK while i was dressing (and not a baby one, a cute 5cm one, ticking its feet all over me). Bugs are something that we cannot predict, but cockroaches comes with the dirtiness (and no, its not because we are in the country side, as they suggested me in the reception. they exist mostly in towns with tons of garbage) and paying 66€ per night should guarantee that you are free of bugs on top of you! (after the 4th one we checked out) Totally overrated!

    Breakfast is good and quite complete.

    It was almost last minute booking we made on the island. The location is really good, very close to the main road, and many places of interest in the northern part of the island. The bungalow was OK - spacious and fully equipped, giving quite a lot of privacy. However it needed some more enhancements for the future, especially the couch in the salon. The personnel was very nice and helpful. The breakfast was OK.

    We stayed at Solar do Conde and for sure it was the best hotel choice from all hotels we have stayed in S. Miguel Island. Very relaxing atmosphere, the suite was wonderful and so cosy! The service is amazing, staff very professional and thoughtful. The pool area is very nice and the breakfast room is a delight. Breakfast very complete and very good, as well as the a la carte restaurant for a romantic dinner. Very charming property and with such character. They have kept the property’s original features mixed with a comfortable and updated decor. Wish we could have stayed longer. A “must stay” when you travel to the Azores
