    Walk into town past industrial areas. Madalena not as pretty as Velas or Horta. A couple more pool loungers maybe good. Sign says eat breakfast only in inside, why not sit outside?

    Luxury apartments with kitchen facilities, lovely set up, gorgeous setting, nice seawater pools. Very simple arrangement: they give you room and breakfast and the rest is up to you! Very little contact with staff. After breakfast its all self catering, buy your own food and beers at supermarket or eat out. Very tranquil setting, very peaceful. Walk a short way down coast to Cella bar, locals bar and natural swimming pool.

    Personal attention, great communication. Mara was very attentive to make our stay most comfortable and enjoyable. She wrote ahead of our stay to ask us what bed sizes we would prefer (family of 4 adults). Service was impeccable. Our appartment was roomy and very quiet.

    The kitchen could be better equiped for self catering. Also needs better means of heating in the early season.

    Spacious modern apartment. Very good location.

    The sauna was disappointing as it rather was a UV room. The heating did not work and there was only one in the bed room. Since it was March it was a little chilly inside and we would have preferred a better heating system.

    The location is amazing and we had a nice room with side ocean view. We ate our own breakfast as there was a kitchen included.All in all great experience and recommendable.

    Best hotel/apartment in all of Pico

    We had a second level unit with a deck that provided sweeping vistas of the water and the island of Faial. The surf crashing against the black lava rocks on the shore was exciting and, at the same time, surreal. The unit was spacious and well equipped. The front desk team was helpful and the check-in/checkout was smooth. Mara, the front desk manager provided good information about tours and restaurants. There is no better place to stay in all of Pico. We will return in two years.

    I think they mop, but don't vacuum, the floors. Also, orientation to the property and town could have been a little more in depth.

    The site where this set of apartments is located is a previous brownfield site so surroundings are a bit derelict and lacking in charm.

    This apartment was very comfortable spacious and clean. The site was beautifully kept and the swimming pool looked very inviting A very clever attempt at creating a fashionable set of holiday apartments

    We were there in April, the weather was not that warm yet, and as there is no heating in the flat (except in the bedroom), it was a bit cold and humid in the evening

    Quiet flat, at a short walking distance from the village centre. Good-sized flat, big bathroom, and amazing ocean views, (provided you book an ocean side flat). There are small 'pic-nic' tables if your flat does not overlook the ocean. Clean swimming pool.
