We've staid in six different places during our travels in the Azores and this was by far our favorite hotel. It is located just outside of Madalena, and the view is absolutely fantastic. It's a fairly small apartment style resort, our flat was ocean view from the main entrance/living room while the kitchen was facing mount Pico. On a clear day you can see the top of the mountain and the neighbouring islands all from the same apartment!
The nice thing is that the resort is sustainable and modern. It is very clean with a lovely pool and all of the staff are very friendly. The apartments are specious with a separate living space, equipped kitchenette, and a large tub. There is also TV and complimentary WiFi which comes really handy when it's cold out. We look forward to staying in Baia da Barca in the summer, April proved to be a little chilly for the islands overall.
