TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Camoes Ponta delgada
We arrived at Hotel Camoes in the early morning after our flight - around 8ish. We were checked in early, given our room keys and even offered breakfast (inclusive) that was still being served. The reception staff was most welcoming, helpful and we felt very comfortable immediatly upon arrival.

... m hoping all these flags might make the room a little more colourful – as lovely as the room is, being surrounded by magnolia and framed ‘stock paintings’ for months on end might send me stir crazy.
Today was particularly nice actually, it’s difficult to explain but it’s very refreshing to meet 5-10 new people everyday; people sit together, spark up conversation very naturally and then you sit about sharing stories. It’s almost like ...
... States where a picnic is known as 'dinner on the ground', here in Furnas it's 'dinner IN the ground'. Daily they bury big pots of food - meats & root vegetables mostly. Dropped inside cement tubes about 3 ft. long, then covered and buried, they come back after about 6 hours nd dig them up and serve you! How could I pass up this chance? On recommendation of a Canadian/local we met, we went to Tony's to give it a shot. Me, not Donna as they serve up chicken, pork, ...
... and just above the casino. It’s about the furthest thing from the quiet atmosphere of a library. In addition to the noise, you get a whiff of smoke every time someone comes in or out of the cigar lounge. I don’t think you could possibly come up with a worse place for a “library.”
Returned to my cabin at 7:31 to get ready for dinner, then headed downstairs to Deck 7 to Moderno, a Brazilian churrascaria. This is a premium ...
