Terceira Mar Hotel

Terceira Mar Hotel

The Azores, Portugal

Perched on the southern shore of Terceira, overlooking the Atlantic, Terceira Mar Hotel combines spacious modern rooms with sweeping ocean views. The hotel is just outside Angra do Heroismo, near the distinctive bulk of Mount Brasil, making it convenient for walks along the mountain’s paths or strolling into the heart of the old town.

The 139 rooms and suites all have generous windows to make the most of the water views, and many have balconies where you can sit outside to soak up the ocean breezes. You can take advantage of the many eateries in Angra do Heroismo, which is the oldest city in the Azores, or dine at Monte Brasil Restaurant, overlooking Fanal Bay.
