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.

We traveled to Sao Jorge in June 2013. The apartment in the resort was very nice and modern, it was perfect for arriving "home" there after a long day's excursion (we traveled every day). We had plenty of space with a small kitchen where we could prepare our food, and in the evenings we could just sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the view on the neighboring islands. We also tried the swimming pool, although the water was really cold for us. The beginning of June was not really busy so we didn't have neighbors in the resort. Altogether it was a great place with great service.
