Extensively renovated in 2004 to a very high standard, Pousada Santa Cruz is built inside the thick walls of a 16th century fortress.
The hotel has one of the best positions in the Azores overlooking the famous marina of Horta and the impressive volcano of Mt Pico. Just a minute’s walk from the yachting legend Peter’s café sport, there isn’t a better location in town.
There are 27 guestrooms each with private bathroom, air conditioning, minibar, hairdryer, TV and telephone. Most rooms have balconies and other facilities include an excellent restaurant, bar, outdoor swimming pool, safe deposit at reception, chapel and lift.
Pousada Santa Cruz is located right next to the marina in Horta on the island of Faial. Staying here, you are in the heart of this beautiful cosmopolitan town. See below for more information on Faial island.
Most activities on Faial start from Horta so being at the Pousada Santa Cruz is an ideal base. Alternatively, you could hire a car and explore this stunning island on your own.
