After reading the reviews, I had high expectations. We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in February 2015. My daughter and I were the only guests for 1 of those nights and 1 of 3 others for the other nights. When we arrived it was raining. We were escorted to a room 4 steps below the surface (so basement... More

we loved this out of the way place. You will need your own car to get here. Very pleasant hotel with a good restaurant, which was handy as there is nothing else around. They had Chinese food which was very good. set on the rocks with great spots to sit and watch the sea. 10 minute drive from the whale... More

This seems to be the best hotel on the island of Pico but it underwhelmed me. It seems that exterior maintenance has not kept up with the ever growing moss, ferns, etc. There is a slight smell of decomposition around the hotel. Inside the rooms were clean and well cared for. Breakfast was rather boring and standard.

Great location, good atmosphere, nice property - just we didn´t get to enjoy this all because the hotel was overbooked even though we have had prepaid for the room. They just offered to move another housing which was far from what we were expecting. Solving the problem was not professional by the administration.

Incredibly located in the rough and steep Lava Coast with a lot of walkways, view points, places to relax and even to swim (if the ocean is calm enough). Very good restaurant. Very friendly and helpful staff.

This place is amazingly located - it's just surrounded by pure essence of the Pico island. Steeping outside of your room puts one almost straight on the Pico trail - and I enjoying walking them immensely.

Great location. Loved the swimming bay. Very friendly and accomodating service. Good picninc sandwiches. The only drawback was the plastic on the matresses. I don't have anything else to write, but Tripadvisor demands 200 characters - stupid rule!! Stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid

My husband and I spent our 20th Wedding Anniversary in July at this gorgeous resort. The views and design of the resort are just amazing. You are set high above the ocean with different pathways to the pool or an ocean overlook where you can either sit and read or take in the stunning views. We enjoyed the restaurant in... More

My husband and I spent two nights at Aldeia in mid-September. We stayed in a single studio room with was very large, comfortable and had very nice modern bathroom.

One of the most beatiful and fascinating resorts we have ever been: the hotel is built in a tropical park on the ocean, with access to a bay inside the lavic rocks to have a protected bath, with paths among trees and flowers, with a romantic terrace to have a dring when the sun goes down, and bungalows scattered in...
