Actually we staid at Caso do Frances a nice little house combinating local (lava) style & design. We were 8 of us ; for more privacy I recommand a max of 6 in party. The food at the hotel, home-made and based on local productions was excellent.

A wonderful place well located. The staff is very kindly. The rooms are clean. Food in the restaurant is simple but good taste. I have some food allergies and have no problem to find something to eat. Sometimes the cook adapt some meal for me. Thanks a lot.

Stayed at Whale’come recently for 3 nights. Out of the 68 reviews on Trip Advisor 55 are either ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ so these people obviously enjoyed their stay. However, I feel differently about the place. Pros Very clean rooms Masses of hot water Food in the restaurant pretty good Restaurant and kitchen staff great, they try really hard to make... More

Despite of the book that they show as menu, as they follow a precise local philosophy, the choice is not so wide and the food is nothing special. It's probably more suitable as cafeteria and snack food provider. However, they also act as restaurant if the hotel. Everything in the average: service, quality, pricing.

We had such an amazing week here, it was truly the holiday of a lifetime. The view from our room was out to the harbour and ocean, it was clean modern and comfortable, not huge but then there were so many fantastic things to do we were hardly in there apart from washing and sleeping. The hotel serves great food... More

Stayed here for our honeymoon. Pico is a beautiful island, so peaceful. Overall it's a super place, the location couldnt be better, the vegetarian food is delicious and the staff are great. Whale watching was excellent, we saw 11 different whale & dolphin species and the evening presentations were very interesting. Our room looked out onto the harbour and mountain.... More

We booked a room at the last minute and were very pleased with our decision! The hotel is in a very pretty building by the port. The room was small but very comfortable. The best thing about this place is the people - they were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant / bar has a great relaxed atmosphere and the... More

What a lovely little hotel! If you stay here you are sure to leave with a warm fuzzy feeling inside, I was lucky enough to spend a week at this quaint little hotel on a whale and dolphin watching package. The hotel is super cute and spotlessly decorated from the outside and looks like a postcard, inside is simple and... More
