Hotel Camoes is a 19th century historic building in central Ponta Delgada which has recently been converted into a small, but comfortable hotel.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and have lovely wooden floors; adjoining the hotel is a ‘delicious’ patisserie and coffee shop. The hotel is a few hundred metres from the marina and makes an ideal base for whale watching.
Hotel Camoes has 39 ensuite rooms and one suite with one room suitable for limited mobility. All rooms have telephone, TV, free WiFi, mini bar, safe, hair dryer and air conditioning. Guests also have use of the bar and small restaurant* which serves local cuisine at reasonable prices.
Parking is difficult by the Camões, so we suggest using the underground car park over the road which only charges a couple of euros for the night.
*The restaurant is opened from Monday to Friday for lunch (1200 – 1500) and for dinner (1800 – 2200). Closed on Saturdays & Sundays.
Hotel Camoes is located in the pretty cobbled streets of the old part of the capital, Ponta Delgada on São Miguel island. See below for more information on São Miguel island.
Hotel Camoes is ideally situated for exploring the museums, churches, markets and bustling seafront in Ponta Delgada, the city is also the base and pick up point for lots of activities.
