We very much enjoyed staying at the apartments Baia da Barca at Barca nearby Madalena, Pico. We were with two adults and two children , aged 14 and 16, and the apartment was very spacious and clean. The view was superb, our terrace had frontal sea view. The service was great, and also the breakfast was excellent. Because we wanted... More

We've staid in six different places during our travels in the Azores and this was by far our favorite hotel. It is located just outside of Madalena, and the view is absolutely fantastic. It's a fairly small apartment style resort, our flat was ocean view from the main entrance/living room while the kitchen was facing mount Pico. On a clear... More

Stayed in Madalena mainly to do some diving and whale watching. Madalena is not the most interesting town but the water experiences are very good. Baia da Barca is a new apartment hotel that have some very large and modern apartments. Ground floor is a larger living room with couches and tv. A fully equipped kitchen is integrated. Second floor... More

A day or a couple of days trip from the island of Faial. Take the boat, rent a car at arrival and go around the island. If you are really passionate for walking, find a organized tour to go up to the top of The Pico. Visit the vineyards, the museum and have a glass of red wine and take... More

The hotel is in a peaceful location, right on the ocean. It's a 10 minute walk from town, or a very quick drive. We arrived from an early interisland flight, and they let us check in at that time. The apartment was very spacious, included a nice kitchen, living room, bathroom, and bedroom. There was wifi for free. Breakfast was... More

Very comfortable and modern apartment-style accommodations. Seawater pool was nice and the views of the ocean and Mt Pico are phenomenal. I think it's a bit pricey, but was well worth it. I definitely recommend this place and it has more charm than the other main hotel in Madalena.

Family of 4 stayed for 9 nights early August 2011, 2 bedroom apartment. Clean, beautiful pool, likely one of the best views on Pico. Having visited the Acores 25 years ago, 5 years ago & once again this August I can fully understand some of the less favourable comments posted on other reviews. However, I must comment that the economic... More

Stayed here in July 2011 and the location is awesome. But a bar open till only 17:00 - but honesty let me say that the bar in fact is inexistent. Hotel rooms with plenty of space but only one closet with 6 hangers to put all your stuff is rediculous, it may be sufficient if you travel alone but when... More
