“An excellent, friendly and exceptionally clean B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

I have now stayed at the Comodoro on 4 occasions (including with my father as well as friends), and will be doing so again this October. As well as being the only guesthouse on Corvo, this is a real find. The owner Manuel is a real character, and is once again the island's mayor, Katt his daughter runs the show from reception (both are fully fluent in English too having spent years in the US) while Rosa is the reason why the place is always immaculate.

Rooms are fantastically spacious, modern and well turned out - they're a real steel at the price and each year, I've been asking why they don't hike their prices up! I;ve never seen wooden floors so sparkingly varnished. Breakfasts are excellent too, with a buffet style cheese, ham, jam, bread etc - all locally produced on the island apparently - with a coffee machine and fresh juice too.

The owners are also on hand to help out with anything you require e.g. transport up to the caldeirao - they can sort out transport for you. Also, when you get back from a soaking having hiked around this wonderful island, there's a boiler room where you can dry off all your stuff.

I'd genuinely recommend contacting the Comodoro if you want to stay on Corvo. Many people think that daytripping the island is fine (from Flores), but it's not. To apreciate the caldeirao (which is frequently shrouded in fog), the black sand beach and one of Europe's most isolated communities you really have to stay here for a night or two.

GuestHouse is the best option to stay on Corvo during the trip on Acores. It's located in Vila Nova do Corvo, just few minutes on foot from the small airport. The owners and their daughter Katt are very friendly and helpful. They my may take you to all the localities around the island. There are only 6 rooms and i. There are only 6 rooms available for rent here, so it feels like home. Each of which is individually decorated and modern equipped with private bathroom. For guest there is also a full kitchen downstairs with a full range of pots & pans, dishes, silverware, etc. So, if you plan ahead and pack your own food to bring along, you can make this a very inexpensive trip. The home made breakfast (including in the price) was an axellent start of the day, and we couldn't wish more. There is no wifi but on can use the owner's computer. Very nice stay!
