Cantinho das Buganvilias Resort
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Velas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Not happy about not finding an accommodation in Velas town, we settled on the Cantinho das Buganvilias, which was nearby and not too inconvenient since we had a car. We were afraid that we wouldn’t be able to find it, but saw the sign for Ponta de Queimada and there it was, almost at the end of the road. (I believe the sign says Pta de Queimada and you turn in at the church.) Also, transport from the airport and/or port can be arranged in advance with the property.

This seems like a brand new facility on a residential street (although I think someone said it was about 8 years old). Trees and vines abound, both on the property and along the street, providing a lovely green environment. There are two swimming pools – one indoor and the other outdoor - as well as an exercise facility and full restaurant. This last amenity is convenient as there didn’t seem to be any other options within walking distance. Velas is a short drive away.

All of the rooms are apartments, with a full kitchen, dining area and large living room. Our unit had two bedrooms – one with two twin beds and one with a king sized bed. The bathroom was large enough for two people at the same time – two sinks, toilet, bidet, shower and tub. The décor was modern and pleasant. Windows abound, with two walls of windows in the living room and large windows in each of the bedrooms. Linens and sheets were a nice quality.

Overall, given the size of the apartment for the price made the Cantinho das Buganvilias a good deal and the amenities made for a comfortable stay.

From the beginning of our stay to the point where Max dropped us back off at the airport, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Buganvilias. In October, the island slows down (even more), and we were one of three couples in the small resort for the night we stayed. Our spacious suite was clean and comfortable, and with magnificent views of Velas, Pico, and the harbor. We walked around the grounds enchanted by the volcanic rock walls and vistas, and the silence except for the waves (and the chickens first thing in the morning). Breakfast was continental only because the restaurant was closed for the season, but we had our fill for an additional charge of only €5 each. With the suite only costing €65 and free airport transport, this was an inexpensive luxury--especially when we sat out on the patio with a bottle of wine and listened to the night birds. Marvelous.

Room Tip: Suite B4 was spacious and with a view of the harbor

We stayed for 4 nights in a two bedroom apartment unit. We had an unbelievably great view of the Island of Pico and Mt. Pico across the water and views to the west toward the village of Velas with the daily ferry service to Faial and Pico islands. Each day, after touring the island and having lunch in some good restaurants, my wife and I, in the late afternoon, would take a swim in a very nice outdoor pool (there is also an indoor pool), take a shower and adjourn to our large deck for a cocktail while watching beautiful sunsets. There is no hotel in all of Sao Jorge that can come close to Buganvilias. Max, the manager, was helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations and responsive to technical problems (island internet is not the most reliable). The island is beautiful and easily navigable and our stay at this location only enhanced our experience. We have already made plans to return in two years for a full week.

Room Tip: a second level unit with a seaview is well worth the extra euros.

We loved our stay. I simply could not get enough of this grandiose view and definitely want to go back to this same hotel.

I am extremely thankful to hotel owner Braulio and his staff for their kindness - my daughter is vegan and he was just wanted her to feel happy with her food, so he went shopping especially for her and cooked her delicious meals.
