Cool location with natural swimming cove. Beautiful landscape on the coast. A little away from the beaten path but worth the excursion. Additionally, knowing that we had an early departure, the staff wrapped up a to-go breakfast for us the night before. Clean, sufficient room. Would recommend (and would return).

Nice set up of lava stones made typical Pico houses. On a cliff edge, means somehow dangerous to walk from A to B. Of course the rooms are humid and you can smell and feel it but they are large and confortable. Probably they do not expect their customers watch TV, these are useless as satellite not working properly. Of...

I have never stayed at this hotel but I have visited often over the years when I go to Pico Island. We have had lunch here several times before. This year we decided to go for a drive around the island and stopped here for some delicious liqueur drinks and dessert. I ordered chocolate cake which came with icecream and...

Have no words to describe what it feels like to be in this place. Good vibes all over. Such a peaceful spot to relax surrounded by nature. Food is very tasty and homemade. Staff incredibly nice and useful. Can't to go back. What an example for all tourism investors!

I really wanted to give Hotel Aldeia da Fonte a 5 star rating since it had soooo many nice things about it but it had one HUGE flaw that forced me give it only one. We couldn't sleep! It was such a big disappointment at a beautiful hotel. We visited in August and the room (5A) was so hot we...

After 2 days of fog in Horta, we were dismayed to find fog here. But Felipa at reception immediately showed us a screenshot of spotazores.com of the sun shining in San Roque & sent us off immediately. After long hikes we loved coming home to these grounds. For dinner under the umbrella of trees, for sitting on the look-out deck...

The most important question is always: Would I come back to this hotel? The answer would be NO. It could be a great place: great location, nice stone houses , pool and sun bath area etc. but it appears that the owner lost interest in the place some areas or the houses look a bit untended and not properly maintained....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aldeia da Fonte is a "Charm Hotel" conceived to be a bastion for truly sustained ecological tourism. Its edification was based on the traditional local architecture and involved mainly the use of regional natural materials, such as basalt, our volcanic rock. It is a five-building based hotel, perched over the sea, having the splendorous Pico Mountain for background. The surrounding artistic gardens, with most of the original flora preserved, reflect the care and elegance invested on this serenity haven. The hotel provides 32 charming accommodations, each with personalized decoration that includes restored antiques and recuperation of various objects, depicting history and local culture. Its restaurant, "Hocus Pocus," has earned reputation of the best restaurant of the island. An Oasis of peace and serenity, in the Atlantic Azores, midway from America to Europe. ... more   less
