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

Not a thing of beauty yet we had a pleasant week here. It pays to chose your room based on your preferences: the ones on the new wings face each other so the view is awful - the car park and your neighbours - and you get the noise of cars arriving to the hotel; the ones over the pool... More

Staff at reception was 'cold'. Just about friendly but nothing more. No real interest in their guests. I was almost afraid to ask if we could check out an hour later. Which was ok by the way! We stayed in 335 and the room was clean, modern, airconditioning worked like a charm and the bed was a tad bit hard... More

The hotel was basic, clean and provided some wifi capabilities in the lobby (very slow). I would describe it as a sterile hotel, but probably the best on the island. The pool was a nice respite if you had not spent the day in the ocean with dolphins. I stayed there with my daughter in August 2013.

Nice hotel located next tot the port of Madalena. The bathroom was pretty nice and the room OK. Swimming pool present bit no means to eat dinner. Small groceries shop 2 min walk away from the hotel. They also have a private parking place for your car. Staff is ok. The bar is pretty boring and the bartender was watching... More

This is a B&B hotel, and you have to find other meals elsewhere in Madalena, and the choice of restaurants is limited. This is purpose built hotel, convenient for Madalena Harbour, which will be very good when the building work is finished! The hotel was clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed a reasonably spacious room with balcony. The room was... More

This hotel is the only large hotel in Madalena. So this hotel has lots of guests as I think mostly everybody stays here. Free wifi at the reception desk. We had the suite for our honeymoon: a very large room with sitting area, large bathroom, nice views on the port. The suite is located at the 3rd floor at the... More
