I have just spent 5 nights at Joe's Place with my friend in a twin room. The room was comfortable and clean. Hermance and Paolo have been very crative with the decor and I liked the style. Breakfast was also creative. Each day was something different with homemade bread, yoghurts and jams and water infused with herbs. All told very... More

Joe’s Place is a lovely B&B. It is located about 1km uphill out of Madalena town centre. The property is very nice and special and rooms are individually designed. The bed in our room was very soft what we did not like that much, however this is a personal preference. The hosts were always very friendly and helpful, they provide... More

We just returned from our second holiday to the Azores. This accommodation was amongst the best we have stayed in. We both loved it. The place is a 10 to 15 minute stroll from the centre of Madalena on a quiet street, gently uphill most of the way but when it gets to breakfast you appreciate that. The hosts, Hermance... More

We loved the hosts, the location, the breakfast, but our room on the main floor was so musty....they really needed more ventilation in the bathroom, another window that could open. It was just difficult to sleep. I'm sure the upstairs rooms were better. We had seen such great reviews. But again, the hosts were just AMAZING!

A exceedingly well run B&B with friendly, welcoming owners who really put their heart in it. The room we had (Moinho) was spacious, spotless, airy, with nice hardwood floors and lovingly designed decorative touches and a spacious en-suite bathroom. The view is onto the street but having a shower is a real treat as you can see Pico from the... More

I loved this place. Just a 15-minute walk up from the centre of Madalena, you enter into a paradise of banana farming, residential homes and a few old ruins overgrown with vegetation. You're far and up high enough to wake up to the silence of birds chirping and a fantastic view of Faial Island. The couple who runs Joe's Place,... More

I am not sure what to say about Joe’s Place because Hermance and Paolo were friendly. I guess the first thing to say is that they are not the original owners of Joe’s Place, having taken over fairly recently.
