The staff were very welcoming and friendly, the afternoon tea was a lovely touch and the room and breakfast area were delightful. Despite it raining the duration of my stay, I still found the island very beautiful and tranquil and there was a large dvd library to keep guests entertained whist the weather was bad. This place is perfect for... More

We think it's overrated and expensive. The location is good, but we had some issues with the noise (and not only) which were ignored. There was also an issue with the lack of electricity and thus with the loud generator. We asked for a discount but again did not get any answer, not even a polite negation. But the breakfast...

Good day! The eletricity is really an issue in the Island, and we know the generator is noisy, but it is better than not having any lights at all. Glad you liked our homemade breakfast though. Thanks for staying with us! More

We stayed at this Pousada for 3 days. The staff was very welcoming and accomodating. They always had a friendly smile and nothing was too much trouble. The surroundings are just beautiful and very well kept. Breakfast was good. Not memorable but satisfying and varied enough. They offer a complementary 5 o'clock tea (or coffee/juice) with pastries and little snacks,... More

This is a very nice hotel. Wi-Fi was only available at the reception ( in 2012 anyways). Room was very nice, always tidy, comfy. They've got games and DVD s available at reception for rainy days (we had one). Place is absolutely amazing, beach is far though, a good hour uphill walk to the longest but obviously the most beautiful... More

My wife, Barbara and I had a lovely three night stay at the Pousada earlier this week. I'd echo some of the other comments here. Very friendly and obliging staff, especially Cintzia, who went out of her way to provide useful information and help out with bookings and recommendations on the first day. The staff seemed to be genuinely focused... More
