1) Room (4 stars) - Spacious - Good mattress, not too soft - Spacious bathroom - shower not sufficiently secluded from bathroom. When showerimg everything gets wet - no amenities 2) Cleanliness (4) Clean. Everything smells damp. This is by no means the hotels fault but due to the climate and closeness to the ocean 3) Noise level (4) 4)... More

This hotel as well as Pico I have had in my travel focus for several years. The reality exceeded our expectations in terms of the hotel and the island itself. The hotel is situated on the south coast a few kilometers west of Lajes. It takes about 45 minutes from the airport by car via Sao Roque and the central... More

I gave this hotel a '4' because of the gorgeous grounds and scenery, plus the rooms (suites) are really nice. However, there are a few things you must know, as it is not all modern comforts. First and foremost, the beds in these suites are as hard as rocks. And I'm not kidding....hard as rocks. None of us slept all... More

Aldeia da Fonte is a beautiful property, perched on the edge of volcanic cliffs on the Azorean island of Pico, right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The whole place has a wonderful, relaxed and rejuvenating vibe, with the constant soundtrack of waves crashing against the cliffs. The pool deck has the best view I've ever seen, out over... More

The setting is magnificent, and the owners have done a beautiful job with the landscaping. The property has a very chill vibe. Our room (5A) had a lovely view of the Atlantic, and we could hear the waves crashing some... More

If you want to feel that you are just a little bit beyond the middle of nowhere, you should like this place. Set on the south shore of the incredibly beautiful Ilha do Pico, the hotel is a cluster of small buildings constructed of the ubiquitous lava rock that comprises most of the island’s architecture. Rooms are neat and clean... More

Before we comment on the beauty of this place, we would first like the thank Paulo for his exceptional kindness during our stay. On our last day, which was a Sunday, we were low on gas, and our credit card would not work at the local gas station. Because it was Sunday, everything else was closed. We had to be... More

A truly relaxing place to unwind. We stayed here for 1 night on our multi island stops. We were originally booked for 3 nights but was sad to leave after only 1 night. The only reason being that it was too far away from the ferry to the other islands. At every turn the views were magnificent, the grounds were... More

Near the sea. With small villas in the wild nature. The rooms are very well decorated. Fantastic access to the sea. Nice Swimming pool. The staff is quite nice. The food in the restaurant is very good. If you want to enjoy the nature in Pico this is the hotel you must choose.
