Set in beautiful grounds, the Azoris Faial Garden was originally the base of the Western Union undersea cable communications company and was converted in the 1970’s to provide guests with a good quality base during their stay in Horta.
Although it is elevated from the centre of town, it is only a 5 minute walk to the marina and ferry port.
Rooms are in the main hotel building and also in small villas dotted around the pretty grounds and some rooms have a sea view though a supplement applies for this.
There are 131 en-suite rooms, all with air conditioning, TV, hairdryer and safe deposit box. The panoramic restaurant overlooks Pico and serves local specialties and offers a good value buffet dinner during the summer.
Faial Hotel is located on Faial island in the heart of Horta in a quiet location above the marina. See below for more information on Faial island.
Most activities on Faial start from Horta so being at the Faial Hotel is an ideal base. Alternatively, you could hire a car and explore this stunning island on your own.
