“Avoid!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We stayed on a walking trip and its difficult to say anything good about this hotel. The room key was given to the taxi driver with directions. The heating didn´t work, even after pointing this out and it was cold in November. No pug in the bath, so no bath, towels of poor quality and no means of drying them. The telephone to reception didn`t work and it was some distance on a steep road to go there. The TV didn`t work. However the food was OK.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel

Residencial O Curtado was an incredible find. It cost us EUR40 for a triple including breakfast. This was the cheapest accommodation we had the whole holiday and the room was big, clean, quiet, with its own balcony. There was parking right outside too which was very convenient.

It is located on the North side of the island which is less frequented than the South. However O Curtado had wonderful views as it was so high up and we were raving about it for days afterwards. The North also has a lot to offer so should not be ignored.

What O Curtado suffers from (but which makes it great if you go there yourself!) is a lack of publicity. They did not respond to emails as their internet was down, they don't have a website either. Therefore the only way to really book a room there is to call them. Even then, I was not confident that I had a reservation as the person who answered had limited English and my Portuguese is even more limited! But when we arrived, they were expecting us and the rest was fantastic.

In short, this is an excellent budget option, no frills but everything that you need for a price you could only dream of.
