The best of Ponta Delgada

  • 5 of 5

Winter vacation in the island is not for everybody. But my dream was to spend the Holidays in Ponta Delgada. The accommodations were great. The condo has everything. Full kitchen, laundry room, beds were comfortable and cozy, spacious living and dining room. We had a family reunion and the space was great to accommodate 12 people for dinner!!! The Solmar building has everything. Shops, restaurants, bakeries, and a market just outside of your door. On the back they have an open market with all kinds of fresh produce, fruits, meats, fresh local fish everyday, and the cheeses are out of this world. Fish you can’t imagine that exists. The local wines were great and the prices is incredible. Best place to see the city at your feet is from the 17th floor. The fireworks were amazing on New Years eve from the balcony. In the windy days you can hear the wind and watch the waves crashing over the docks. A nature show not to miss. Just be careful not to open the doors on the balcony on windy days, or you are going to cause some damage. I broke a glass panel. Manny is a great landlord. Checked with us a few times to see if everything was ok or we need it something. Paulo his employee came over at 9:00 pm because I could not work the washer. Just turn the button to the left not to the right and chose the minutes. Thanks Paulo, that could waited. If you don’t want to go to the first floor for internet access, go to MEO store on the first floor, and buy a router for less than 30 Euros and you can pay by the hour. One Euro an hour!!!. Worked great for me. Don’t worry about an international phone the condo has a cell phone and just add time, again at the MEO store. For international calls I used my IPAD to call for free.

Overall we had a great 4 weeks at Manny’s condo. Thanks Manny you are great.

Affordable, comfortable, and convenient. A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in the condo on the 17th floor for nine days. It is located within walking distance to the center and the views of Ponta Delgada from the enclosed balcony are spectacular! The condo was a bit smaller than expected from the pictures, but it was fully equipped and met all of our needs. Manny was very gracious and helpful. He even made sure that a grab bar was installed in the shower area prior to our arrival. While it is not fully wheelchair accessible (large bedroom furniture and narrow interior doorways) it is navigable with a walker. We would recommend this property to others who are looking for the conveniences of home. Thanks Manny. We had a great time.

Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed at the apartment in late April 2015. Manny met us at the front door as we got out of the taxis and showed us the condo. It's not fancy, but it was clean with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, laundry and a balcony to view the city. Perfect! It's the best location in Ponto Delgada to search the city from and Manny was a incredible and gracious host. We also, had internet and a grocery (wine/beer) store right downstairs. We recommend staying at Manny's.

An unforgetable trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this very spacious, centrally located 3 bedroom apartment in Ponta Delgada, fully equipped, (highest building in the city) with panoramic views from every window. Mr. Manny Farias was extremely helpful in making our stay perfect. I would highly recommend this apartment and would stay again!

Fantastic apartment and much, much more! The reviews speak for themselves for this one!!!

  • 5 of 5

The best part of renting this apartment is the owner...seriously! Manny is an unbelievably gracious host and friend while you are there. You will be amazed once you are actually in the apartment and start looking at the most amazing views of Ponta Delgada and the ocean. As so many other reviews have stated, this 18th floor apartment is gorgeous throughout and extremely spacious. The location in the heart of Ponta Delgada means you can practically walk to everywhere in town and be able to come home easily. We loved being out at all different hours of the day and night and no matter where we were we just needed to look in the skyline for the building and make our way back with no problems! Anything you need for your stay is in the apartment, and Manny is a quick phone call away if you need him. There is free and fast internet in the mall on the 1st and 2nd floor and many restaurants and cafes to choose from...this was great when it was raining not to have to leave the building when we were hungry. And the food at all these options was very reasonable and delicious, and an added plus was having a supermarket just outside the building for whatever else we needed. Thank you very much Manny for our visit and a perfect stay in Sao Miguel!!! I highly recommend this rental and will definitely stay here again when I get back to Ponta Delgada, if it is available. I will also tell all my family and friends to stay here when they visit.

Memorable trip!

  • 5 of 5

We were a very large extended family group traveling to the islands as part of a long awaited wish of my father to share his family history and with his children and grandchildren. It was an amazing trip and Manny and his condos were a big part of making it a successful and memorable one. We were a group of 18 of which 10 stayed in the condos. Manny met us at the front door of the Tower, which is very conveniently located above a mall and grocery store as well as a short walk to the city center, the ferry terminal, and the public pool/swimming/shopping areas. He and his lovely wife took us up and showed us around both the condos and made sure we were all set. He also made sure we had his contact info in case anything came up or we had any questions. The condos themselves were extremely clean and well appointed with everything we would need to make them home for the week. The views from the 17th and 18th floors could not be beat and we spent our nights and most meals out on the balconies just taking in all of Ponta Delgada. My father especially enjoyed the complete panoramic view of the port both day and night. Manny was always super responsive with emails answering our many questions as we booked the condos almost a full year in advance, and was very courteous and accommodating in person. The location and its proximity to the heart of Ponta Delgada can't be beat! I would recommend staying in Manny's condos for all the reasons I already mentioned and it also made traveling with such a big group much more affordable than any of the hotels in the area. We could cook our own meals, do laundry, and most importantly spread out and relax on real furniture unlike a hotel room where you are confined to one room and sitting on a bed. With children this was a much better alternative all the way around. So thank you Manny! All the best... Beth and the family.
