The Lince Azores Great Hotel, Ponta Delgada
I would not stay there again unless improvements were made. When I tried to check in, they told me there had been a flood and they had to move me to another hotel. I understand things happen, but the hotel I was moved to looked like it hadn’t been updated since the 70s. Not a hotel I would have booked. They did give me a voucher for a free buffet dinner (food was eh) and free parking for a night. I was able to move back to the Lince the following day and the room was decent but the pillows were horrible and the only way I could get even a hint of WiFi was to stand right next to the door. The next morning as I was rushing to check out to make my early morning flight, there was no one at reception! I had to track someone down at the closed restaurant so I could leave. Not something I felt like doing at 6 am. This could be a decent hotel if they update the pillows and WiFi and make sure there is staff available at all times.

Terrific breakfasts, clean rooms, good location
First of all, the breakfasts here are AMAZING. I would come back for the breakfasts alone. We stayed here in November 2016, which is the off-season so the rate we paid was very affordable. (I'm not sure we could afford to stay here during peak season.) We arrived early in the morning and they held our bags until check in at 2pm. The hotel is conveniently within walking distance of the center of Ponta Delgada. The beds were very comfortable, and the Wifi was generally good (although it went down a few times). The hotel has a pool and hot tub, but the hot tub was not hot at all -- only a little warm. The room was clean, and again, the breakfasts were delicious! I miss them already.

Improvements needed
Hotel was fine but leisure centre and swimming pool very poor.It was not inviting to go swimming. Buffet breakfast not 4 star standard.We had to search for a staff member on a couple of occasions to get cups,spoons and the like. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay.

Good location, nice hotel
Good location, good price and the free pool table was a bonus! Our room was a little shabby (base of the beds were torn) but overall it was good. We had a twin room but each bed was big enough for two. We ate at the restaurant one evening and the food was delicious, in particular the regional steak. Breakfast had lots of choice but the coffee served at breakfast is poor. Lots of people were asking the waiting staff for an espresso or coffee from the machine they use when you order coffee at the bar.
