We had a fantastic time on Sao Miguel, our first time in the Azores, and a big part of this was the very comfortable accommodation we experienced at Pico do Refugio. The location is great, though of course you'll need your own car, with views to the sea from our apartment, which was up by the main house, rather than... More

We enjoyed very much our holidays, nice and children friendly. Location is central if you have rented a car. The apartment is cozy the kitchen is well equipped. We stayed there with our little daughter and cooked everyday. If you want a calm place in a nice area Pico do Refugio is perfect, can recommend this beautiful place to families.

The space is super comfortable and beautiful, with a nice view and fabulous "gardens". The lofts are clean and have an impressive decoration. The staf are 5 stars. In my opinion suitable for those who want to relax as well as exploring the island.

It was by chance looking in Booking that we found this pearl. The place is perfect. Bed is good, bedroom with countryside views, quiet at night, breakfast is great. Follow Ricardo tips for the day tour. He keeps up with the weather report.

A very nice and charming place. Ricardo's tips and recommendations (sight-seeing & restaurants) were really helpful and taking us to a couple of interesting places. Breakfast was excellent (especially Maria's jams!). We felt really at home and would definitely come back!

It was the best place to stay in Sao Miguel. We had a huge modern apartment with a fireplace. The view from windows open on to the fields - amazing, especially when you have breakfast. Breakfast deserves special thanks: it was brought to our apartment and included delicious and home-made dishes: the tenderest azorean cheese, fresh juice, outstanding coffee, jam,... More

The hotel features an outdoor swimming pool. The hotel is located on a huge property which used to be a tea plantation. By arrival... More

Pico do Refugio is what I call real luxury...the ambience is of a very modern and sophisticated ambiance, we felt completelly at home, with Mrs. Maria preparing a superb and energetic breakfast, Mr.Manuel giving me lessons on the Island, and Ricardo and Mafalda wellcoming us as friends. They introduced us to the restaurant «Quinta dos Sabores» (just next door) run... More
