Within a 5-minute walk guests can reach this small compact centre with its pretty square and park, a harbour with regular boat crossings to  Pico and Faial, and a selection of restaurants and bars.

The hotel affords wonderful views of Mount Pico, across the water, which can be enjoyed from all the guestrooms, as well as from the panoramic breakfast room. There is a large outdoor salt water pool, with a separate area for children, and surrounded with sun loungers. The rooms are simply decorated in neutral colours and have wooden furniture. Although the hotel has no restaurant, the town centre, which has a good choice of restaurants, is 200 metres away.
