Hotel do Canal is a high quality hotel on Faial in the Azores and is located just by the marina at Horta so perfect for diving, whale watching and all manner of other activities.
The Hotel do Canal in Horta on Faial is a modern, 4-star hotel and a very comfortable place to spend time. With 103 rooms including twins, doubles, executive rooms and suites, this is not a small, boutique hotel and if you want that it is best to go elsewhere but it does have a charm to it. The rooms are all modern and clean and come equipped with air-conditioning, cable TV, a mini-bar and all the other amenities you would expect from a hotel of this standard.
As one of the larger hotels on the island, Hotel do Canal is also the one with the most facilities. There is a fitness centre with Jacuzzi, sauna and Turkish bath, a beautician and hairdresser where you can also get a massage, parking… the list goes on.
There is only one main restaurant at Hotel do Canal serving buffet breakfasts and a la carte lunches and dinners but there is also a bar and room service. Venture into town for a wider choice of restaurants and make sure that you have a G&T at Peter's!
Why we love it
Make sure you have dinner at the Canto do Doca which is a 1-minute walk from Hotel do Canal where you grill your own meat or fish on a basalt rock.
