Couple of days ago we visited Whale'come for some drinks and dinner. Even then the service wasn't great, bot acceptable. Just now we wanted to get some coffee and waited for 15 minutes at the terras... Then decided to ask at the bar where the locals got a premium treatment (skipped the waiting queue) and the tourist were ignored completely... More

After whale tour, we had lunch and diner in that restaurant, with very nice and rich salad or toast with very good service. Good place for quick lunch or diner with good quality and reasonable price. The only problem, the Kitchen is not open all the time, so you need to wait special time for lunch or diner.

Had lunch here for four senior citizens on holiday in The Azores. Visiting Pico for the day. Interesting food and tastefully decor, freshly cooked begets and fillings all nicely prepared and tasted good. Value for money and nice helpful staff. Good English spoken.

If you want to whale watch while on Pico, this is THE spot to come to. What started off as a whale watch shop morphed into a snack bar, then restaurant, then hotel. The rooms are cute but TINY. What really bothered me was there is NO cross ventilation in the rooms, so in warm weather, the rooms can be... More

We stayed two nights at this simple hotel in Lajes do Pico in July 2016. Our room was very clean and had an ocean view. However, it was also very warm as the sash window opened only a bit (about 12 centimetres). We asked if they had any fans (not air-conditioning) - they didn't. As we needed to have the... More

We stayed for five nights B+B. The rooms were great: clean, airy and stylishly finished. The staff were kind and helpful, with nothing being too much hassle. The breakfast was also generous and tasty, with cereal options and also cooked food.

From 191h to 261t of September 2015 we (2 persons) spent a wonderful time on the Island of Pico. We had wonderful opportunities to be part of sustainable and unforgettable whale-and-dolphin-watching tours with "Espaco Thalassa", and we were living in the Guest House of the organisation, in "Whale'come". We had a great time there: a cozy, nice room (with Atlantic... More

We stayed in Caso Do Frances, a house above the Espaco Talassa whale watching station and next door to the Whalecome hotel. Full of character it's built from local lava, was spotlessly clean when we arrived and with a washing machine, fridge, Tv and two bathrooms it ticked all the boxes required for a comfortable stay. The food cooked in... More

The hotel organize whale watching tours. They have a team of experienced marine biologists who know really a lot about what to expect. However, if you stay there for one week with children, whale watching is quite expensive there (same price as adults) in comparison with a concurrent located in the same street. Our room was really clean and well... More
