Very recently I stayed for a few days at Joe's place. I'm a single man and don't have a large holiday budget. For that reason I chose for the smallest room available "little joe" and I was given a super nice view on the ocean with that.
Joe's place is not a "classy" B&B, but everything you need for a nice holiday is present: a good shower after an exciting day, a good bed, a very tasty breakfast, air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, friendly owners who give you a lot of information about the island and above all, the location is really good, on foot you can go very easily to the centre where there are several restaurants and terraces. For visiting the other islands is Joe's Place also located nicely: a few hundreds of meters from the harbour. There are whale-watcher companies and car hire companies located in Madalena.
During breakfast you sit at a big table so you can easily make contact with other guests. For me, this was ideal. Upstairs there is also a nice lounge with a small terrace which is very pleasant in the evening with a glass of wine.
For me this was the nicest B&B during my tour across Sao Miguel, Faial, Horta and Pico.
