    4 testimonials for Pousada Forte da Horta – Hotel Santa Cruz

    1. Truly enjoyed the stay in this Pousada. Have been a fan of the Spanish Paradores for many years and this was the first Portuguese Pousada I satayed in. The Azores are fascinating, the landscapes are unforgettable. I must have taken hundreds of pictures.

    2. A fine hotel,I found it a pity that I had a room at the side of the hotel with no view of the sea, as the hotel was absolutely not full I found this a bit strange. The resturant staff were excellent. I had the feeling that there were not so many guests and that the reception staff were a bit bored . However it was a good place to stay for the start of my holiday in the Azores although expensive. maybe an idea to introduce better packages especially for the over 60,s as we seem to be the group travelleling a lot.

    3. Ein sehr schönes gepflegtes Hotel mit toller Aussicht auf den Hafen und die Nachbarinsel Pico. Die Lage ist perfekt. Das Personal war freundlich und hilfsbereit. Der Preis für die Pousada ist in der Nebensaison akzeptabel. Können das Hotel sehr empfehlen

    4. Stayed here in late September on our first visit to Acores. Excellent location, right in centre of Horta. Balcony room had great view of harbour and of Pico with all it’s various cloud formations. Very friendly and welcoming staff.
