Aldeia da Fonte Nature Resort
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Lajes do Pico
Reviewed 8 October 2017

We didn't stay at this hotel because we only made a day trip to Pico, but had lunch at the restaurant and were quite pleased. Although it was raining a little we could still eat outside and enjoy the garden view. The food was pleasant and there was a wide variety of dishes, ranging from local dishes to even Chinese food. I had Chinese and liked it a lot. Would definitely recommend this place.

If you want to get away from the typical modern high rise hotel, this is for you! The grounds are lovely with a 10 minute walk through forest over cliff to swimming pool. You can also swim from lava rock cliffs. The dinner menu is extensive and includes Chinese and vegetarian. The quality was quite good. However this is 35 minutes from ferry or airport by cab.

Absolutely lovely hotel in very romantic surroundings. Also good for families. We had an amazing view from our sea view room.

The hotel has its own small "sea trail" which is signalled as a hiking trail (PR). So cute !

Also warmly recommend their travel agency, Fonte Travel. Thanks to Filipa who organised to perfection our tour of the Triangle Islands and got us the best available rooms everywhere.

We stayed for three nights on our tour of the Azores in June and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were extremely helpful and really seemed to enjoy their jobs. We particularly liked the little hidden seating areas dotted along the cliff which gave stunning views of the coast and also the walkways around the grounds.

The rooms were very spacious but next time we will choose an upstairs apartment which is lighter and more private from passing guests.

We would certainly stay again and thoroughly recommend it.

Would we stay at this hotel again? Absolutely.

The location is superb, at one with nature. The houses are delightful; rustic, traditional, cheery & blend very well with the landscape. Personally I did not have an issue with the firmness of the bed as I need good support for a bad back. Bathroom was a good size & basic toiletries provided.

We stayed in 8B-a deluxe double & were close to the cliff edge & able to see & hear the sea. I was a bit disappointed that we didn't have any outside seats-we were too close to the stairs. If this is important to you make sure your room has an outside terrace with seats. The ceiling fan was fine for keeping the room fresh.

Guests with mobility issues may well struggle here as there are many cobbled areas & steep steps leading to various parts of the hotel.

Breakfast had a reasonable selection of hot & cold items. We ate in the restaurant every night for our 4 day stay & the food was very good. The menu is very extensive with lots of lovely fish. All the food was a very reasonable price & there was a lot of it.

My only slight problem was the service. All the staff were very helpful & friendly. When we arrived we had to wait quite some time before any one came to reception despite ringing the bell twice. Also if you arrived at the bar during the day it was often quite hard to find someone to serve you coffee or drinks. As we checked out before 7am I was lucky to be able to find a waitress to give the room key to.

This is a lovely laid back hotel & fussy service that is found in big impersonal hotels would not be suitable here, however I do think staff should be more available when the guests need something. A bit of polishing & this hotel would be gold standard.
