I have a very mixed feelings about this place as this was my dream to come here for a very long time. The major point of staying here is that you get a unique experience in a small village of first settlers. The "village" is very cute and the grounds are beautiful and reminds of some sort of a movie decorations. Nice helpful staff. Apart from that, I think it is very overpriced as you get a very basic tiny house with almost nothing inside. Washrooms are not comfortable at all with just a tiny old shower. The breakfast was super tasty however they don't serve anything for lunch and they have days when it is closed completely while the only closest restaurant is 3 km away. You definitely need a car for staying here.
We really enjoyed the quirkiness of the stay here. It's a wonderful little village and the restaurant serves good food with great service(though quite pricey). We were upgraded to a house that was just waaay too big for us...as a couple we had 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms so this felt a bit of an odd upgrade though the house was nice. The location is great and very close to beautiful waterfalls. The only negative of our stay was that the kitchen seemed to be infested with ants which made it really uncomfortable cooking and eating there. I'm not sure anything could have been done to help this as it's a rural stay so insects are almost expected...but it did detract from our stay as we couldn't relax in our home for the time here.
Good food, beautiful atmosphere and excellent service by Fabio! We visited the place twice, had soup, grilled fish and meat. You should always call in advance, because of the limited number of restaurants on Flores.
Spent two nights there. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Beautifully restored stone village, very friendly staff made for an overall pleasant experience. Restaurant was more than adequate or actually rather good. The house that we stayed in was a bit basic but that’s what we expected and payed for. The beds were super comfortable and the linen crispy. Excellent value for money. Had a small issue with the number of stray cats who looked undernourished and scraggly, which pained us a little. This, however, seems to be a problem in the Açores in general.
this place is the most magical place we have ever been. carlos, silvio and all the family do there best to make our stay as much as comfortable and unforgettable. we are a couple with 2 little children and we all enjoy this amazing island and this unique hotel. the atmosphere, the staff, the flowers all around and the breath taking view make this place one of a kind. the food at the hotel restaurant is the best food we eat in the azores islands . great holiday, really recomended.
