In authentic buidings in a quiet bay you can hear and smell the sea ...an idyllic setting. Ok.. the petrels swoop at night but that's all part of the experience. So lovely big room and comfy beds, a good breakfast each day and a beautiful garden to woner around. Bliss..

This is not a traditional hotel. Looks more like a B&B or private house. Built respecting the island tradition. Quite interesting accommodation PRO: - the structure itself is fascinating - the decorations of the rooms and "common spaces" are interesting and unusual and reflect the love for traveling of the owners. Nice the pictures shot by the owner on the... More

The owners don't know how to manage their property. They duplicated our reservation and didn't have the decency to question why a couple on their honeymoon would need two separate rooms. Worst of all they said it was our fault and we had to pay the full 3 night on both rooms. I didn't really get a choice not to... More

Dear "Rosie" Sorry but we must correct some facts. First of all, we didn't duplicated your reservation. You did it. You made 2 reservations (one direct with us and one by booking.com). The first reservation was made in your name (R.R.) and the other one in name of your husband (S.H.). As you can see by the initials, there is... More

There are so many good and bad things about this hotel. The decor is upmarket - the service and facilities are less so. No 24 hour reception, no room service, no restaurant, no kettle or bottled water in the rooms, no products in the bathroom. There is an immaculately kept pool and garden, a beautiful cove on the other side... More

My family stayed in two of the guest rooms at the end of August. We had a very pleasant stay. The owners are very helpful and go out of their way to make you feel at home. The rooms are very nice, clean and modern which makes for an interesting contrast against the old vineyard buildings in which they are... More

My husband and I had three nights and days at the nice hotel, and it was a nice experience.. We had been on Lajes de Pico before (on the other side of the Island) looking at whales etc, and now we needed something else to explore. When you live at this hotel, you need a rented car or use of... More

The room was beautiful with all the exposed stone and beams inside. Very comfortable and everything we needed but shampoo! I don't consider this an issue. The innkepers were very nice... More

Pocinhobay is a "secret" small hotel in front of a natural swiming pool that have everything we wanted. Its calm, clean, "design decor", traditional materials (wood and basaltic stone) and great gardens. On top of that, the reception was very friendly, the breakfast unforgettable, and the beds and sheets extra comfortable. It was a very good experience and we will... More

There are many beautiful places to stay in Pico. If you would like to experience the most arrogant of inn keepers - go for it - and they don't know how to work the invoice software - so don't expect a quality invoice. If you skip this haven here's what you are missing - 1) no toiletries in the bathroom... More

We recently had the pleasure of spending 10 nights at Pocinho Bay in July 2010 - and can't wait to come back to what is simple a special place. For those looking for a quiet haven, with beautiful rooms, set in a wonderfully relaxing garden then we wouldn't hesitate recommending Pocinho Bay to anyone.
