The subject says it all. Great location great people cannot fault anything about the place. Very friendly staff who did everything to make my holiday easier and great. The rooms are very clean, basic but just what you need. There was a bit of noise there at night from the birds but it never affected my sleep. The food there... More

Not the cheapest place to stay, but really nicely located at fisherman's harbour. Young holiday workers at the bar gives a quit atmosphere. The rooms are really small. Narrow passages no extra room for lugage or changing clothes. But we slept peaceful and de room was highstandard clean.

This small hotel is right on the seafront at Lajes. I was there for a weeks whale and dolphin watching with the company espacotalass.com which is owned and run by the same people. The town was the centre of the whaling industry until it ceased in the late 1980's. I was in room 2 directly above the restaurant and having... More

The establishment in situated on the harbour front overlooking the sea Lages is the whale watching hub of the Island and you can tell they are proud of their heritage. Great care is taken to make the village look its best and it has a completely different feel and look to the other villages on the Island. The Whale'come ao... More

We stayed there a week, first room 12 later room 6. 12 was okay, nicely tucked away in a small alley, so the street noise was silenced to an acceptable level. After 2 quiet nights and a discussion with management, we moved to room 6. This room is small (I am a 1,88m person) and extremly noisy. The beds are... More

Dear Ruud, I am not use to answer to any post as I believe it give more visibility and less impartiality to it. But here you are not fare. Yes it was planned and you were well informed that you have to leave this big room (we dont even charge for this extra) as a family was checking in. This... More

We have just returned from a week in Lajes, staying at Whale'come ao Pico, and enjoyed every minute of our stay. It's a small hotel (12 rooms) with very friendly owners and staff. Our room was spotlessly clean and there was always lots of hot water ready for that much needed shower after returning dripping wet from a fun trip... More

Stayed at Whale'come ao Pico as part of a Whale Watching trip with Dolphin Connections. Hotel was basic, clean, small and perfect for what we needed, being out on the ocean most of each day it was good to come back to a hot shower and good food served all day in the hotel bar/café. Thoroughly recommended.

There are not too much places like this in the middle of the Atlantic for sure. Very nice and cozy place with very good food. Despite some large (and noisy) groups that sometimes arrive by bus, the restaurant is very calm and the quality of the menu regarding price and options will reveal good surprises of meat to vegetarian dishes,...
