My daughter and I just LOVED Joe's Place! Situated in Madalena, a small town a 5-10 minute walk from the town center (where the ferry is too). A simple BandB but very welcoming, we were happy with our accommodations (two twin beds). We had our own bathroom with the basic amenities (a shared hair dryer is available); the room was... More

Joe's place welcomed us when we arrived in the morning and were able to leave our luggage as we toured around town. The next night, we hiked Pico and were able to leave our backpacks that we did not need at the BB. Upon returning from the hike, our room was ready (we were exhausted and needed a hot shower!)...

This lovely B&B is a ten minute (uphill) walk from the harbour - good for walking off your evening meal. The setting is beautiful - breakfast is taken on a lovely terrace overlooking Madalena to Faial. We also sat with a glass of wine here each evening before going out for dinner. We had a ground floor room - it... More

I recently nabbed the last room going at Joe's Place after deciding to head to Pico at the last minute. I felt immediately welcome, and thoroughly enjoyed the lovely breakfast had daily on a terrace looking towards Faial. Highly recommended.

A huge recommendation for this B&B. Very nice atmosphere, really nice hosts and a great view on Madalena and Faial. The bedroom/bathroom was very nice, spacious and clean. The breakfast is really great. If we ever come to visit Pico again, we'd like to stay here again.

I have just spent 5 nights at Joe's Place with my friend in a twin room. The room was comfortable and clean. Hermance and Paolo have been very crative with the decor and I liked the style.

Joe’s Place is a lovely B&B. It is located about 1km uphill out of Madalena town centre. The property is very nice and special and rooms are individually designed.

We just returned from our second holiday to the Azores. This accommodation was amongst the best we have stayed in. We both loved it.

We loved the hosts, the location, the breakfast, but our room on the main floor was so musty....they really needed more ventilation in the bathroom, another window that could open. It was just difficult to sleep. I'm sure the upstairs rooms were better. We had seen such great reviews. But again, the hosts were just AMAZING!
