For a hotel that does not have air conditioning, this is a super comfortable place to stay. They have ceiling fans over the beds that move the air around quite nice. We also left our window open for fresh air. Our view of the ocean from our veranda, was quite picturesque. Within steps of our room, was the platform down by the ocean where we enjoyed some Super Bock beers and a cigar. The room was great with the mini bar and sink. The bathroom was nice, but their showers are not fully encased with a secondary wall,--it's hard to keep it neat and dry, just need a longer wall lol--. These rooms are not for the handicap due to the hotel grounds and walk ways. You have multiple opportunities to take some awesome pictures on the grounds and walk way's. The food at the hotel was fantastic. We ate there every night and it was awesome every time. Please try the fish skewer. It had a white fish, squid and shrimp on it and OMG it was amazing. It was served with a vegetable, potato and a salad too. Also tried the ravioli, the Chinese menu, black pork stuffed with prawns and sausage, and you gotta have the octopus salad!! --Never thought I'd eat that, but wholly macaroni lol it is something I must learn to make---I also managed to have some on Terceira and Sao Miguel lol. We opted not to swim in the ocean...even though there is access. It was really rocking & rolling but they do have a lovely pool. (see pic's) But I would absolutely recommend this hotel to friends. Oh, and Paulo at the front desk, is indeed, an asset to Aldeia de Fonte Nature Resort. He is very helpful and he is a true gift to have. Thank you all for a great stay and a place I can call my 2nd home. We will return. Yay!!!

Room Tip: Had a 1st floor ocean view room & veranda. No AC (ceiling fans over beds) They really don't have bugs, so open your window to hear the ocean

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.
