This place is great! The best reception we experienced in the whole of the Azores, friendly, informative and smiley! The location is a little out of town but it has fantastic views! We absolutely loved sitting on the stone sofa and watching the sunset and only wished we had has warmer weather to take a dip in the natural pool. Loved everything, it's a place with a lot of character.

Just returned from a 7 night visit (we spent 9 nights here in 2011). Great location on the island with spectacular view of Faial and the mountain. This visit included our son-in-law so there were 5 of us in a 2 bedroom apartment style unit. We had ample room and kitchen facilities were more than adequate. The natural pool was new this time providing hours of fun scrambling around on the lava rocks and cooling off in the ocean. Main pool lovely. Breakfast was good (fresh orange juicer - nice touch!). Especially happy that the facility has been well maintained - we requested the same unit as last time and it appeared just as clean and fresh as it did on our last visit. Staff, especially the young lady who has a little one on the way, were so pleasant and accommodating. As I mentioned in my review 8 years ago, if you need anything at all you have to do is ask - the staff will do whatever they can to make it happen. We plan to return one day. In the interim: Thank you Baia da Barca for another great vacation! (Recommendation: If you plan to climb the mountain, do so on the front end of your vacation. They don't climb everyday due to weather conditions so it's best not to assume that you can cherry pick a specific date- it's best to allow for some flexibility. Also, the Gruta das Torres lava tube (worth seeing) is so much busier now - in 2011 we basically arrived and had no problem, this time we reserved in advance since they are turning people away on some days due to the increased interest and number of tourists (you can't book online yet but send them an email & they will confirm, then pay when you get there). That's it - enjoy!

We stayed 3 nights here and loved everything about it! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by Maria, who gave a us all the information that we wished for. So honest, enthousiast and kind! Thank you Maria :) The appartment was really spacious and clean we could have easily spend a week here. The view, the pools and the service add to a perfect stake out for a stay on Pico Island! Special regards go to the breakfast served: local products, lots of fresh fruit and delicious homemade cake!!! Good job!

An amazing place next to the sea, with a salt water pool on the sea shore, a swimming pool and outdoor seating areas with volcanic stone tables, great for an al fresco picnic, whilst taking in the stunning sea views across to Faial! Really friendly staff and the rooms were large and comfortable, with a well equipped kitchenette. It is well located, only a short walk from Madalena centre and the Marina. The breakfast was excellent, with lots of gluten free options and a fantastic selection of local cheese. We would love to come back!
