Hotels in Sao Miguel
Hotels in Sao Miguel are as astonishing as the Island. They offer all the ideal conditions for the most perfect holidays, no matter the size of your pocket.
Over the last years tourism in the Azores developed immensely. Therefore, new lodging facilities appeared and they had quality as first goal when they were planned.
In spite of the touristic boom that occurred in Sao Miguel, there was an effort to keep nature untouched. Fortunately, the magnificent natural beauty of the Island was not affected by the increase of tourists.
