I really wanted to give Hotel Aldeia da Fonte a 5 star rating since it had soooo many nice things about it but it had one HUGE flaw that forced me give it only one. We couldn't sleep! It was such a big disappointment at a beautiful hotel. We visited in August and the room (5A) was so hot we... More

Again 5 * for a 4 star hotel. The Hotel is in the middle of a forest by the sea. It has access to the sea and an outdoor pool . It has several spaces to relax in the woods with views over the sea. The staff was always super kind, including when we forgot a small bracelet on the... More

After 2 days of fog in Horta, we were dismayed to find fog here. But Felipa at reception immediately showed us a screenshot of spotazores.com of the sun shining in San Roque & sent us off immediately. After long hikes we loved coming home to these grounds. For dinner under the umbrella of trees, for sitting on the look-out deck... More

The most important question is always: Would I come back to this hotel? The answer would be NO. It could be a great place: great location, nice stone houses , pool and sun bath area etc. but it appears that the owner lost interest in the place some areas or the houses look a bit untended and not properly maintained....

When showerimg everything gets wet - no amenities 2) Cleanliness (4) Clean. Everything smells damp.

This hotel as well as Pico I have had in my travel focus for several years. The reality exceeded our expectations in terms of the hotel and the island itself. The hotel is situated on the south coast a few kilometers west of Lajes. It takes about 45 minutes from the airport by car via Sao Roque and the central... More

I gave this hotel a '4' because of the gorgeous grounds and scenery, plus the rooms (suites) are really nice. However, there are a few things you must know, as it is not all modern comforts. First and foremost, the beds in these suites are as hard as rocks. And I'm not kidding....hard as rocks. None of us slept all... More

Aldeia da Fonte is a beautiful property, perched on the edge of volcanic cliffs on the Azorean island of Pico, right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The whole place has a wonderful, relaxed and rejuvenating vibe, with the constant soundtrack of waves crashing against the cliffs. The pool deck has the best view I've ever seen, out over... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aldeia da Fonte is a "Charm Hotel" conceived to be a bastion for truly sustained ecological tourism. Its edification was based on the traditional local architecture and involved mainly the use of regional natural materials, such as basalt, our volcanic rock. It is a five-building based hotel, perched over the sea, having the splendorous Pico Mountain for background. The surrounding artistic gardens, with most of the original flora preserved, reflect the care and elegance invested on this serenity haven. The hotel provides 32 charming accommodations, each with personalized decoration that includes restored antiques and recuperation of various objects, depicting history and local culture. Its restaurant, "Hocus Pocus," has earned reputation of the best restaurant of the island. An Oasis of peace and serenity, in the Atlantic Azores, midway from America to Europe. ... more   less
