The hotel is the "last" house before Velas, unfortunately there is no walkway to Velas village, can only be reached by car or in case you are a good swimmer, try to cross the bay. Great location with beautiful views to village and Pico island. Althouth it's next to airport no noise day or night. Rooms (apartments) are big and...

The houses are modern in concrete and glass cubical style, very aesthetic to my taste. The location is quiet but close to the airport, to Velas and the decent restaurant "fornos de lava". We had booked a superior apartment on the first floor with two bedrooms for 10 nights. When we arrived we were put in apartment D1. It's located...

I so much prefer to write positive reviews, but couldn't for this property. Yes, the physical building is spacious and modern, but the facilities that count detracted terribly. The air conditioner, placed three rooms over from the bedroom, had to be on full blast all day to make the bedroom comfortable for sleeping. But for one of our nights -...

We stayed for two nights in family. The flat is very well equipped with a modern and pleasant decor , feels good right away. The host is perfect, is discreet and very careful that all goes well during your stay. The tips at reception for ballads are very useful. We highly recommend this establishment.

We loved this place when we stayed here for two nights. Max was a great host, picking us up from the ferry port, arranging a car for us to hire and opening up the pool for just us. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was spot on for what we needed and the apartments are fantastically furnished and clean. No...

My family was traveling Portugal and the Azores tracing family roots on my mother's side. Sao Jorge is where her family originated from, so this was a key stop on our journey. Cantinho das Buganvilias Resort far exceeded our expectations! First, upon checking in, we learned that the owner was very interested in ancestry and island heritage. My mother arranged...

We stayed here for 4 nights as our base to explore the island. It's easy to find & well located, being just past the west end of the runway and a 10 min drive out from the main town of Velas. We stayed in a 2 room apartment (B1) to have some extra space. The apartment has a small kitchen...

We have rarely been treated so well on our many travels. Braulio, the owner, had us picked up at the airport (and dropped off) and our rental of the apartment (for only 2 nights, alas) included a free rental car, brand new, which we very much used and appreciated. A magnificent view from the 2 bedroom flat we rented and...

Superlative accommodations in outstanding setting. This hotel is in a great location on Sao Jorge which allows easy access to anywhere you want to go; good proximity to Velas and yet when you are in your apartment you have complete tranquility and amazing views. The grounds are extremely well kept, as are the accommodations. "Max" was the "go to guy"...

“A1 - the best in every way! Really ask for those rooms in the FIRST ROW. If not, your next view are the bedrooms of your neighbours, and that's a real nonsense! The sophistication and brilliance of the place is location and view. If you don't choose a super view, you commit a BIG mistake. And upper floor rooms get a much better view, because downstairs there are bushes and trees in front, and isolation of the buildings is not very good. If your upstairs, nobody bothers you...”
