My wife, our little son (11 months) and me had a wonderful week at the Banana Manor Guesthouse in Horta. Claudia and James, our hosts, did everything to make us feel comfortable. We really appreciated their help and support and it was always nice to talk to them about their lives and experiences on Faial island. They provided a baby... More

In light of 'hostel' style accommodations, the Banana Manor was above average. Two blocks off the waterfront (it's views and cafe's), two blocks from the California Pizza restaurant (good pizza), across the street from a small buffet restaurant. Lovely backyard inclined through the banana trees, past the chickens, to a rock wall from which the view of the harbor and... More

We booked two days with James, Claudia and Tiago and stayed one more. Their huge and modern feeling guest house is a less than 5 min walk from the Ferry in a quiet street. It is a 10 min Walk to the core of the city and 20 min tp Peters café. Our first room with (2) shared bathroom was... More

This is a charming basis for visiting Faial and Horta. The hosts James and Claudia took good care of us, and we enjoyed delicious bananas fresh from their big and lush garden. The house was newly renovated and well kept. Recommended.

We had a great stay, I only regret it was so short. The hosts are wonderful people, very friendly with lots of knowledge about the island. Our kids made friends with their son right away :) House is in a great location, short walk away from the harbor and the ferry terminal.

Banana Manor is pleasantly located close to a canal, a 15th century church, and the Pico ferry terminal. Spacious, incredibly clean rooms with high ceilings, breakfast and kitchen facilities at our disposal, and a bathroom with a sizable tub, ideal for a soak after a long hike around Faial's caldeira. The proprietress, Claudia, was energetic, upbeat, and knowledgeable, and her... More

It was a really nice experience. Someone from Flores recommended Banana Manor for me. First I met James, but later also Claudia and their lovely son. The room was really nice, the living room and the kitchen have great ambiance, I had a nice dinner with a great CD. Next morning we had breakfast together, I've heard their story and... More

I stayed in this place 3 years ago, but it always stayed in my memory as a very nice place with everything you need. The owners are nice people, easy living and friendly. Hotel was clean, close to the places I needed to go so good enough for me. It is a very quiet place as well, but most of... More

I stayed at the Banana Manor "out of season" - but never felt out of place! While some accommodations on other islands seemed a little gloomy with not many travelers around, I felt safe and comfortable at the Banana Manor with the added pleasure of enjoying delightful conversations with my hosts. Jim, Claudia and their wonderful son Tiago made this... More

We absolutely loved the Banana Manor and our hosts, Claudia, James and Tiago (one of the smartest young men I have ever met, and charming as well) - they made us feel so very welcome in their home. My husband, mother and I stayed for 4 nights and we found the rooms spacious and comfortable and the kitchen fantastic. We... More
