Fodor's Expert Review Octant Ponta Delgada

Av. Dr. João Bosco Mota Amaral 4, 9500-771, Portugal Fodor's Choice

This design-focused hotel—the hippest place to stay in Ponta Delgada—offers all sorts of decadent amenities: ocean-facing rooms with balconies, a local cheese and wine selection near the lobby, and one of the only full-service spas in town. Sleek wood-paneled guest rooms have splashes of color and mid-century modern furnishings. The in-house À Terra restaurant wins rave reviews for its modern take on Azorean cuisine. Guests have two pools to choose from: a heated one in the spa and an unheated one on the rooftop, surrounded by views of the ocean and city.

PROS

  • Well-equipped fitness center
  • Lovely rooftop pool and bar
  • Bountiful breakfast buffet

CONS

  • Can hear noise in some rooms
  • Some guests find the roof pool too cold
  • A hike to the center of town
