This guesthouse is really a good place to start from for your exploring of Pico. Rosairinha was so very helpfull that we felled immediately at home. She also booked our whalewatching and mountainclimbing. We had a great stay. We hope to come back one day. We had troubles with the bank and she and her son fixed it for us,... More

We've never felt so warmly welcome in a hotel before. John and Pamela are fantastic, they are enthusiastic and really want you to enjoy your stay at the Azores. John's barbecue chicken is great and he can show you the best places of Pico. And after a long day, you can relax in the Jacuzzi. We strongly recommand this place!

this is way more than just a place to stay. From even months before our trip, John was helping find our family roots/geneology, and helping us plan to make the best experience on Pico. John and Pam extend themselves to be completely at their guests' disposal. We were with a large family group (10 people) and John found extra rooms,... More

What a wonderful place this is. We had such a great time staying there for almost a week. The suite Sophia is huge and offers a great view of the coast. We had doplhins and whales almost everytime we looked at the sea. John and Pamela are great hosts - their hospitality could not be better. John has so many... More

We had a great time exploring Pico while staying with John and Pamela. The house is very nice but the people make the difference. John’s local knowledge and other stories are extensive and he’s glad to share them with you. The owners pride themselves in caring for their guests. The rooms are comfortable and pleasant. You can use the large... More

I admit that I am guilty of being one of the thousands that only takes from on line reviews and never gives back, EXCEPT now. John & Pam at Miradouro Da Papalva and the brilliant adventures that they facilitated when my family and I were on Pico have inspired me to finally give back. You have no reason to read... More

What a gem! You can't find a better Guest House! John & Pam are wonderful people. You feel right at home when you meet them. We stayed in the Sophia Room. What a view! Our bedroom and living room had balconies with a great view of the town and the ocean. You are in walking distance to town, close to... More

Host John provided great advice and directions as well as a nice room. It was conveniently close to the whaling trips we took out of Lajes. Only a couple of English channels on the cable TV, but a nice DVD library to make up for it. A good value, and charming ambiance. We particularly appreciated John's dining tips.

Diane and I stayed at Miradouro da Papalva this May. We had rented a car in Madalena and were planning on letting serendipity take its course when it came to a place to stay for the night. As the afternoon drew near we pulled over at the local coffee shop in Sao Joao to ask where to stay the night... More
