Wonderful location, in a quieter part of Pico than the much busier Magdalena area, but still with restaurants, supermarkets and banking machines easily available. Peaceful, with beautiful views of the ocean and Sao Jorge island. Shared kitchen is good for limited food preparation. There are some ants and other bugs around, but this is not unexpected for a place surrounded by nature and where the windows and doors are open most of the time. Rooms are small and basic, but come with individual outdoor patios and very nice shared areas. I did not use the pool or the free loaner bikes, but the washer and dryer were a godsend after hiking in the heat and humidity. Very good wifi. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. You have to tell them the day before if you want the 9 euro breakfast, but I would do it at least once. Huge selection of delicious items -- best meal I had in the Azores. There is a very nice ocean natural pool for swimming less than a kilometer walk, with showers and changing rooms.
