Where to stay in Ponta Delgada

As the island of Sao Miguel's primary tourist hotspot and center of activity, Ponta Delgada boasts perhaps the widest array of the lodging options in the Azores. Check into one of the luxury hotels in the core, closer to the ocean, to treat yourself to swimming pools, spa facilities, and a host of other amenities. Alternatively, try a smaller guesthouse or private villa slighty farther from the sea to save a bit on costs while still keeping yourself within reach of the area's churches, museums, and coastal fortress. The city itself is relatively compact, so most of the hotels in and around the city center provide easy access to its historical sites and tourist attractions by foot.
