We stayed 6 nights there the rooms were clean and large. The pool was nice, although we only used it once. Internet was awful, we could only get it in the front lobby and it was spotty most of the time. The front desk staff only had one person, so it took time if you needed anything. We had to... More

This is a decent hotel with good beds. The insight of the hotel is typically seventies style, old ugly brown furniture. The breakfast is very elaborate and good. The staff at the reception was not really friendly. Overall a decent hotel but do not expect luxury.

We stayed five nights at this Hotel. To make it very short, this location is what it is: Good enough. Everything starting from check and looking at the rooms and services are o.k. but nothing more. So if you just looking for a quiet overnight stay and do not plan to stay during the day there, then this is the... More

We arrived with a late ferry and instead of a nice welcome were asked to pay in advance (wow...). The room itself was quite nice, modern, comfortable and very clean. A small balcony is a pleasant surprise. The breakfast was quite good but busy and the staff did not manage to refill in peak times. Reception guys were cold at... More

Stayed for three nights, very good location, right opposite the ferry terminal. The rooms were o.k., but a little on the small side, hotel staff seemed o.k. Neither good or bad! The breakfast was very good, in the varied selection on offer. It does have parking, but seemed limited, so may be a problem at busy times, although there was... More

The staff at this hotel seemed to care very little - They were not helpful when looking for advise / info about Pico. Breakfast was basic. Room was of good size, clean. Wold recommend looking elsewhere if you want a more enjoyable experience on the island.

This unit has a perfect location; it is set in the very centre of Madalena village, next to most facilities and the harbour. The rooms are large and well equipped and the staff very pleasant. The only negative point is that the maintenance team needs to pull their fingers a little; our room's windows would not lock and the bathroom... More

Ideal location, right by the ferry terminal - if you are arriving by sea from another island you walk almost from the boat right into the lobby Service at the lobby was decidedly surly, and infuriatingly slow - at several times during our stay there would be multiple people waiting at the desk but only one member of staff helping...

I stayed here for a week with friends and would certainly recommend this hotel. The rooms are a good size and were spotlessly clean and cleaned well every day. Breakfast was very good with a great choice, fresh fruit, lots of different breads, sausages, eggs, local cheeses and cold meats. My only complaint would be the coffee was always luke-warm... More

I was part of a group of 14 travelling to Pico for a diving holiday. We stayed in the hotel for one week - we had a very pleasant stay. Check-in of our group was efficient, rooms were a good size, very clean and well serviced every day. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a very good selection of everything.... More
