We recently stayed at this hotel the rooms have recently been updated but the grounds are quite tired looking. Outside of the gym there isn't anything to do here and it is a nature hotel. The food in the evenings was very good however the breakfast was very basic. It is essential that you have a car here as there...

Beautiful hotel-resort on a cliff with direct access to the sea and a nice swimming pool also overlooking the sea. Very quiet with several areas to rest and enjoy the view or a good book. Also of note a terrace over the sea and a whale-watching tower from which, if you will not see a sperm whale (by the way...

This wonderful hotel has different stones house spread on different levels among old trees and above a bay with cristal clear water. We had a junior suite with two rooms facing in two directions towards the ocean. The only thing missing about the room was a balcony or terrace, but there are so many wonderful places with chairs or benches...

Excellent situation, just near the ocean, under the trees, plenty of space between little buildings that hold the big rooms. You eat (very well) in the garden under the trees. Smiling and efficient service. Nice swimming pool with a view over the ocean. The only critic would the beds a bit too hard... We are sad to leave.

The Hotel Aldeia da Fonte exceeded our expectations! The property is beautiful with separate buildings containing lovely apartments. Gardens and trees everywhere. Our apartment had a breathtaking view over the cliffs of the ocean crashing against the rocks below. The restaurant is excellent with friendly competent, caring wait staff. We ate all of our meals on the tree shaded outdoor...

Very, very nice location. Plumming and reception personnel need overhauling. Studios with balcony and view on the ocean. Waterheater to make hot beverages, but no teabags nor coffee. Main asset of the hotel is the view and the restaurant. Breakfast below standard

Just a short review which comes from the bottom of my heart, along with an immense "thank you" to all those nice and smiling, as well as extremely helpful staff members of this very special hotel in a spectacular location! The food they serve you for sure is the best that you can get on Pico!

A great place to stay. Accomodation is in bright and well equipped chalets situated in the most beautiful gardens (this may prove a problem to those with severe mobility problems). We really enjoyed the gardens, with the associated bird and bat life, and the sun deck where we sat and watched the Atlantic Ocean below us. The staff were helpful,...

We were fortunate enough to spend a week here in October. I must say that the team here went out of their way to make sure that we had a pleasant time on the island. The lodge is nice, but I would caution American tourists that its a bit different in terms of room accommodations/quality than what you may be...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aldeia da Fonte is a "Charm Hotel" conceived to be a bastion for truly sustained ecological tourism. Its edification was based on the traditional local architecture and involved mainly the use of regional natural materials, such as basalt, our volcanic rock. It is a five-building based hotel, perched over the sea, having the splendorous Pico Mountain for background. The surrounding artistic gardens, with most of the original flora preserved, reflect the care and elegance invested on this serenity haven. The hotel provides 32 charming accommodations, each with personalized decoration that includes restored antiques and recuperation of various objects, depicting history and local culture. Its restaurant, "Hocus Pocus," has earned reputation of the best restaurant of the island. An Oasis of peace and serenity, in the Atlantic Azores, midway from America to Europe. ... more   less
