Nice people, good service and cozy little apartments, perfect for couples! The wifi has some trouble, specially at the beginning of the night, but it is not a big problem. The breakfast is simple, but nicely made.

Some steps out of village (which became in the last years very busy) the restaurnt (belonging to the Pousada Chez Max) is located directly at the 3rd beach (terceira praia), has nice atmosphere and superbe food (unluckily the pizzaoven is not in use everyday). Go there, relax and enjoy!

The prices are reasonable and the breakfast is included (very nice breakfast). You can see the ocean when you have breakfast, that's the best! Each bungalow has air con and a fridge, which... More

Extremly nice staff and very clean. Just in front of the ocean, the best room is number 5! But all the others are nice too, little chalets very cosy with a net in front of each bungalow, breakfast is very good with pure home made juices and cakes, really nice, and quality price the best!
