We stayed here for 4 nights as our base to explore the island. It's easy to find & well located, being just past the west end of the runway and a 10 min drive out from the main town of Velas. We stayed in a 2 room apartment (B1) to have some extra space. The apartment has a small kitchen... More

We have rarely been treated so well on our many travels. Braulio, the owner, had us picked up at the airport (and dropped off) and our rental of the apartment (for only 2 nights, alas) included a free rental car, brand new, which we very much used and appreciated. A magnificent view from the 2 bedroom flat we rented and... More

Superlative accommodations in outstanding setting. This hotel is in a great location on Sao Jorge which allows easy access to anywhere you want to go; good proximity to Velas and yet when you are in your apartment you have complete tranquility and amazing views. The grounds are extremely well kept, as are the accommodations. "Max" was the "go to guy"... More

What a wonderful place! I had a lovely two room private villa with large expansive windows. The view of Velas and the harbor was breathtaking. And then there was the view of Pico!! The quiet was almost deafening in the mornings and evening execpt for the sounds of the neighboring roosters. The restaurant was quite good and the cook and... More

When we arrived there, we just could not believe that a small and remote island as São Jorge would have a hotel which is breathtakingly beautiful as the Cantinho is! Arriving by boat (Cruzeiro do Canal, 1 hour from São Roque do Pico, wonderful panoramas!) the small town/village of Velas is already a very lovely surprise. 10 minutes later when... More
