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...

The birds during the night were a special experience. We liked our room with the big bathroom. The breakfast was okay. It would be nice when there would be fresh juice and more fruits like pineapple and watermelon everyday. The pool is wonderful to stay and the view over the sea is great.

The staff were excellent. The accommodations were in keeping with the rustic and charming locale without sacrificing any modern comforts. I even met the owner, a very personable man who even gave me a personal tour. Lovely pool area with access even to the ocean for those more adventurous souls. If you come to the Azores you need to visit... More

The rooms are actually little houses in a green park, very traditional and characteristic. They offer a stay full of charm and comfort. They have a swimming pool and private access to the ocean. Cuisine is excellent and offers a wide inexpensive choice. Really wonderful food, except for breakfast which is poor and can definitely be improved to match the... More

My husband and I booked a room here to stay overnight as a getaway from a family vacation for some alone time as we have family on the island. It was such a beautiful hotel. We had an ocean view room. The resturant had good food and breakfast is included as well. We would come and stay again.

The hotel is just as described. An eco conscious resort with top notch rooms / suites. Our suite was huge; had a fireplace and small fridge. The living area was very large and well appointed for relaxing. The hotel location is excellent; centrally located on the South coast of Pico sitting just above the sea. The grounds are extensive, so... More

Our stay at Aldeia da Fonte was absolutely delightful. It is such a peaceful location, right on the water's edge. Ocean views from the hotel grounds are everything you'd expect, which is to say beautiful! The rooms are very comfortable, clean, and well maintained. The grounds and common areas are as well. While the weather was too cool for swimming... More

The rooms are really suites as they have large lounges with large bedrooms with king size beds. Breakfast is of good quality having meats , cheeses as well as various breads and yoghurt. The dinner menu features various local dishes such as conger eel and fish or meat kebabs. The hotel is in an idyllic setting, having a cliff edge... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aldeia da Fonte is a "Charm Hotel" conceived to be a bastion for truly sustained ecological tourism. Its edification was based on the traditional local architecture and involved mainly the use of regional natural materials, such as basalt, our volcanic rock. It is a five-building based hotel, perched over the sea, having the splendorous Pico Mountain for background. The surrounding artistic gardens, with most of the original flora preserved, reflect the care and elegance invested on this serenity haven. The hotel provides 32 charming accommodations, each with personalized decoration that includes restored antiques and recuperation of various objects, depicting history and local culture. Its restaurant, "Hocus Pocus," has earned reputation of the best restaurant of the island. An Oasis of peace and serenity, in the Atlantic Azores, midway from America to Europe. ... more   less
