“Nice hotel in good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

The hotel is just around the corner from the airport, you can see even the landing strip from the hotel; but as there are only a few airplanes landing or taking off per day, the peaceful atmosphere is not disturbed. It is a rustic hotel in different old stone houses, our room was a little bit dark, but very spacious and clean. The surrounding huge and wild garden is very beautiful. The breakfast is served in a nice small room (feels like in the living room of the hosts) with ocean view. Limited, but excellent choice of local cheeses, cold cuts and fruits from the garden. Very friendly and helpful hosts.
Good location to explore the island.

The Quinta das Buganvilias is a charming bed and breakfast in an old farmhouse situated very close to the airport in Faial and about 10 km from Horta. The accomodation is in a beautifully converted barn and is very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts are excellent and the host charming and very helpful. The quinta gardens are well worth a half day visit on their own. Ask Manuel to show you around, they are so extensive that you could get lost in them on your own! The only drawback is that there are no restaurents within walking distance so you will need a car or use taxis. We would definitely choose to stay there again.

This quinta and its owner are true pearls of the island. We got there by chance -- our original reservation at a different place got cancelled due to overbooking, so it's owner arranged our transfer to Quinta das Buganvilias. It's hard to mention all the wonderful things we experienced there. We lived in a fantastic room elegantly decorated in classical old style, somewhat reminding the late 19th century. All the technical and bathroom appliances were very modern and in perfect condition. We had a wonderful very authentic salon next to our room for unlimited use. Breakfast was excellent in quality and quantity, and served in a very charming room with great view on the ocean. But most importantly, the quinta is owned by a genuinely wonderful person. He treated us with the peculiar true-Portuguese care and sincerety, being very helpful but not intrusive, polite but not honey-sweet. When he saw me walking around the estate waiting for my friend, he immediately offered a brief tour around his garden, which is a miraculous collection of herbs, trees, flowers and fruits. This was yet another example of the way people are treated at this quinta.
To summarise, I would return to Azores even for visiting this quinta alone, to spend there more days and enjoy again the unforgettable feeling of coziness and calm.
