Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉We couldn't stay more because we had to get back to work! :)
눇Paula and Joao are awesome people owning an awesome 200 years old house with a huge garden/yard. They explained to us the ins and outs of Sao Miguel the first night we arrived and were there to help by any means they could during our stay. The apartment is being cleaned everyday and the service is superb. The fireplace is amazing to have in the winter time when the temperature goes a bit lower than usual. If I ever go back to Azores (which is very likely), I would definitely look to reserve their place as my first choice.

눇Its a perfect cottage, perfect host, perfect location, perfect island. You could not whish for more. Ein muss für alle, die nach Sao Miguel fliegen.

눇I travel a lot and it's not too often that I leave a place feeling not only well treated as a guest but inspired. The owners of the property, Paula and Joao were delightful and the work they have done to create an inviting retreat is evident everywhere. They were helpful with suggestions for restaurants and outings and invited us and other guests to share wine with them in the evening. A welcome basket of Azores goodies was a pleasant surprise and included the best pineapple my husband and I have ever eaten! Even though the exterior is old, the apartment's interior design was modern and comfortable. It included everything we needed to feel at home. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The property was also amazing; a trail meanders around the property, like a little nature trail right outside your door. This was our favorite stay in the Azores and I would definitely stay again if I travel again to the Azores.

눉the only flaw was the short (180cm) and somewhat uncomfortable bed and the minimalistic equipment of the kitchen (e.g. just one cooking plate)
눇Very warm welcoming, outstanding friendliness of the owners, very helpful tips about the island, the nice welcome-basket with typical products, worderful garden with pool and ample space, good location for excursions to all parts of the island, quiet place. We would like to come back!
October 13, 2016
눉Everything was perfect.
눇Our stay at Casa do Populo was wonderful!! Paula is an amazing person, and went out of her way to make us feel welcome and at home. The place is gorgeous and peaceful, and fully equiped with much more than you can imagine- kitchen, pool, game room, travel equipment... We highly recommend Casa do Populo! Thank you for a great time, and we will definitely come back if we get the chance.

눉The bed was quit hard and small. There aren't much good restaurants in the neighbourhood.
눇Lovely hidden spot with very nice owners. It's handy to have a car so you can travel around the island.
September 14, 2016
눇The property and the apartment were amazing...the kids had a great time at the pool every evening! I just cannot say enough good things about our hosts, Paula and Joao, who provided us with lots of information about the various attractions, hikes, etc. getting us to a great start on our exploration of the island! We loved exploring the gardens and tasting the various fruits, some of which we've never seen before.
June 12, 2016
눉The only possibly negative thing about this wonderful place would be that the beds are quite short. It wouldn't be a problem if you're not very tall though.
눇Beautiful garden and very nice and helpful staff. Nice welcome basket and very big apartment. Cute pool in the garden. this place is excellent if you like to spend some time in the hotel/apartment, because it is so nice. We barely had time to spend there though, since we were out exploring the island all day long. Children friendly place and parking spaces and a supermarket very close. Quiet area.
May 15, 2016
눇The accommodation was beautifully and tastefully decorated. The hosts were great too! They helped us make reservation at a local restaurants and recommended other places to visit...
April 10, 2016
눇Charming, kind and very helpful owners. Good location outside the city close to beach. Clean apartment, very pleasant garden and useful common room. Great extras like free bikes with helmets, welcome basket and lovely drinks with hosts. Loved it and would be glad to come back one day!

눉The kitchen facility is basic, ok for simple meals, but if you plan to cook dinner, it might be not the best option.
눇Casa do Populo is just a fantastic place to stay, even better than in the description and pictures! Hard to describe all the beautiful details it has and an excellent taste in decoration. It's also very clean, has huge garden and is separated perfectly from the street and noise. It is located a few km from Ponta Delgada, very easy to reach by car in 10min. There is also a bus stop around the corner. The owners are super friendly, interesting and helpful, putting a lot of heart into comfort of their guests. We had a fireplace prepared every day we came back in the evening. We hardly felt the urge to go out and discover the island! Thank you very much!

눇Our stay at Casa Do Populo was absolutely wonderful! We arrived quite early in the morning and our room would not be ready until the afternoon but our hosts Paula and Joao invited us in for coffee and biscuits and made us feel right at home, they allowed us to leave our bags, secured in their home while we toured a little bit of the island. We returned in the afternoon and were led to our apartment, it was beautiful, we were absolutely thrilled with not only the apartment but the beautiful grounds that surround the house, there were approximately 2 acres of gardens and fruit trees complete with trails to walk. We felt truly blessed to have been able to stay in such an amazing home with such lovely hosts. Paula and Joao went over and above to make us comfortable and make our stay so memorable. We would definitely return and would highly recommend Casa Do Populo to anyone looking for a little piece of heaven on earth :) Obrigado Paula and Joao

눉Nothing really to mention, everything was good. The sitting room could maybe be more comfortable, perhaps improving the distribution of the furniture.
눇Joao et Paula are really friendly, warm and kind. They cleaned the room every day. They helped us with everyhing we needed, they are really charming. The garden was really nice and the shared living room was full equiped and very curious because it was an old wine cellar. The appartment had everything we needed and there were some old furnitures very valuables as the wardrove. The bedroom is spacious with a very good views to the garden.

눉Having to leave didn't seem right ;)
눇Everything just great: from the wonderful property with all its hidden gems to the welcome basket to the wonderful owners/ hosts!
September 14, 2015
눇Property owners Joao and Paula went out of their way to assist us, for starters Joao picked us up late at night at nearby location when light and maps were not sufficient and hard to see street names. They us recommendations on attractions and offered to make reservations for us, their descriptions and recommendations were of great assistance in planning our 5 day stay. On last night we stayed in and ordered a typical Portuguese dinner and we were pleasantly pleased with the meal Paula prepared of locally sourced foods, including an excellent home made banana cake (bananas from property)
