Unfortunately I have to start out with a serious negative, even though we enjoyed our stay very much. The bathrooms have the worst possible acoustic set-up possible, and you hear everything from your bathroom or the neighbors. When ANY of the three neighboring rooms used the bathroom, we could hear EVERY groundshaking fart, plop in the toilet of their poop,... More

The hotel is located on the sea in wonderful garden. We were alone in the hotel and the staff helped us with maps for tracks in the area. The food in the restaurant was delicious. It was cooled so we just went to see the swimming pool and the veranda. Very nice!

My wife and I stayed in this hotel during a very slow period of the year. We were almost the only guest and therefore, did not expect too much of choice and service at this time of the year. However, to our delight, the staff was always very nice and informative and they were caring for us to get something... More

This place is fantastic. I was there only for 1 night, but would definitely go there again. Highly recommended. Really calm, you can even hear the ocean, surrounded by nature. There is also free internet.

Totally recommended! Wouldn't mind to stay there again if I ever go to Azores! Delicious food. Ask for the Oreo icecream, passionfruit cheesecake, octopus "à Lagareira" or any other dish. Simple the best homecooked food you'll ever find. Surprising. Still drooling! (Oh and their cheese is amazing. I ate a lot for breakfast! :-) ) Rooms were even better than... More

We recently stayed at this hotel the rooms have recently been updated but the grounds are quite tired looking. Outside of the gym there isn't anything to do here and it is a nature hotel. The food in the evenings was very good however the breakfast was very basic. It is essential that you have a car here as there... More

Beautiful hotel-resort on a cliff with direct access to the sea and a nice swimming pool also overlooking the sea. Very quiet with several areas to rest and enjoy the view or a good book. Also of note a terrace over the sea and a whale-watching tower from which, if you will not see a sperm whale (by the way... More

This wonderful hotel has different stones house spread on different levels among old trees and above a bay with cristal clear water. We had a junior suite with two rooms facing in two directions towards the ocean. The only thing missing about the room was a balcony or terrace, but there are so many wonderful places with chairs or benches... More

Excellent situation, just near the ocean, under the trees, plenty of space between little buildings that hold the big rooms. You eat (very well) in the garden under the trees. Smiling and efficient service. Nice swimming pool with a view over the ocean. The only critic would the beds a bit too hard... We are sad to leave.

The Hotel Aldeia da Fonte exceeded our expectations! The property is beautiful with separate buildings containing lovely apartments. Gardens and trees everywhere. Our apartment had a breathtaking view over the cliffs of the ocean crashing against the rocks below. The restaurant is excellent with friendly competent, caring wait staff. We ate all of our meals on the tree shaded outdoor... More
