While we drove around the island we were looking for a hotel near Ribeira Grande. We first stoped on the surf house on the edge of the street, unfortunately they only had shared rooms left. So next we knocked on the door of Areal de Santa Barbara Guest House and were directly greeted by the houskeeping staff. We usualy do not stay at Hotels with shared bathrooms but decided to stay there for a night anyways. We werent disappointed! There are only about 4 rooms in each house and also 2 bathrooms so its still quite private. The next morning we decided to stay for two more night and we would alsways go back there again. The rooms are very big and clean, the bathrooms were cleaned each morning and there is also a big livingroom, a kitchen and a backyard with a grill

Came here for a week with family as it’s close to the beach and had a very high rating. We weren’t disappointed! I suggest you email the owner immediately you land to say when you will arrive, otherwise you have to ring from the house when you get there. We tried to book the sea view rooms as they are quieter, but they were already booked. The owners met us and was very helpful indeed with local information. The quality of all the rooms, decorations, furniture and fittings was excellent - like living in your own home! The owner came round every day to check all was well and al the other guests were friendly. There was roadnoise in the morning from our rooms so we needed to keep the windows closed, but overall a great place and spotlessly clean! Fully recommend!!

We stayed at here for two nights. The location is great because it’s walking distance to Santa Barbara Beach. The owners and employees are very friendly and helpful. The owner even helped with restaurants to try around the island. I recommend staying here!

My experience while staying at Areal de Santa Barbara Guest House was just amazing. We stayed there for 10 days and we had just amazing time there. The beach is near, 1 minute walk away. The best starting point to travel around the island. The room was cosy, simple, comfortable. The living room and kitchen were large and spacious. The bathrooms were nice, both upstairs and downstairs. A lot parking space in front of the house. i would say that for the price you pay you get a lot and more. The main reason why i would highly recommend to stay at this place is because of the owners Joao and Susete. They are the nicest people i have ever met. They help you with everything. With advice what to visit, what to watch out for... They really take care of you. Joao really tries to make sure everything is ok and that your trip is enjoyable to the fullest. The biggest surprise i received was when they gave us a farewell gift. They really make you fell like welcome. So next time when we visit Azores again we will defiantly go back there. And i have a feeling that if i would go to another island to stay and called Joao for advice he would defiantly helped to again make you feel amazing while staying at Azores. Kind regrads Kind regards

The B&B is located near the beach (5 min by car from Ribeira Grande city centre) in a quiet dead end street. There is enough parking space in front of the house. This location is perfect to make trips around the island. You are able to use the kitchen, the comfy living room, the winter garden and the garden with a barbecue grill. The rooms are spacious as well as the bathroom. We had a room with sea view. It's not a full front view but it's still lovely (see the pictures). As a welcome gift a big bottle of water was waiting for us and some sweets (very nice if you just got of the plane and the supermarket is closed). The breakfast was enough and good and you take it in the winter garden. But the biggest plus point are definitely the owners Joao and Susete. They are one of the nicest people we have ever met. One evening while we were taking some light supper Susete came over and just chatted with us and gave us a small trinket to remember the time we spend there. When she learned that we were going to Pico the next day she contacted her husband who was currently also on Pico. Joao called us the next day to let us know if we needed anything on Pico we could give him a call and try to help us. Super nice! I would always go back to them, if I come back to Sao Miguel which by the way is also an amazing island.
