My husband and I stayed at Whale'come ao Pico for four nights in May on the recommendation of our travel agent, and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. The beds were comfortable, the room was immaculately clean, and there was lots of really hot water (which was very welcome after a rather cold day out on the water)....

We had a wonderful room with seaview and also did the whale watching with them. The staff of the Hotel is nice, just a few unfriendly exzeptions in the restaurant. Food is good, spot is excellent.

This place is fabulous. Vegetarian food abounds and the beer is pretty good too and all at very reasonable prices. If you want to sit outside in the summer you should reserve a table. The owner runs the whale watching place next door espacco talassa which is highly recommended as an ethical way to see them

On our arrival at this hotel we found that our booking had not been made, despite having the documentation from our travel agent. The receptionist was able to find us a room in another of the hotel's properties. The alternative room was very small, hot and part of a self-catering block and was a 5 minute walk from the main...

If you want to whale watch while on Pico, this is THE spot to come to. What started off as a whale watch shop morphed into a snack bar, then restaurant, then hotel. The rooms are cute but TINY. What really bothered me was there is NO cross ventilation in the rooms, so in warm weather, the rooms can be...

We stayed two nights at this simple hotel in Lajes do Pico in July 2016. Our room was very clean and had an ocean view. However, it was also very warm as the sash window opened only a bit (about 12 centimetres). We asked if they had any fans (not air-conditioning) - they didn't. As we needed to have the...

We stayed for five nights B+B. The rooms were great: clean, airy and stylishly finished. The staff were kind and helpful, with nothing being too much hassle. The breakfast was also generous and tasty, with cereal options and also cooked food.

From 191h to 261t of September 2015 we (2 persons) spent a wonderful time on the Island of Pico. We had wonderful opportunities to be part of sustainable and unforgettable whale-and-dolphin-watching tours with "Espaco Thalassa", and we were living in the Guest House of the organisation, in "Whale'come". We had a great time there: a cozy, nice room (with Atlantic...

We stayed in Caso Do Frances, a house above the Espaco Talassa whale watching station and next door to the Whalecome hotel. Full of character it's built from local lava, was spotlessly clean when we arrived and with a washing machine, fridge, Tv and two bathrooms it ticked all the boxes required for a comfortable stay.
