Just returned from a lovely 5 day stay at Pico do Refugio - it was truly a sanctuary at the end of some very busy days driving around the island. The rooms were clean, simple, and very well appointed - the bed and duvet were heaven. You would definitely need a car for this location, but I would suggest having a car on all the Azorean islands anyway, unless you want to pay a lot of costly taxi fares. Ricardo and Mafalda were extremely helpful - had suggestions for restaurants every day, all of which we tried, and all of which were fantastic. They also directed us to different spots depending on the weather, which can vary greatly around the island. We're so glad we listened to them - we had a spectacular view of Setes Cidaces because we decided to go on the day they suggested. They will also book any reservations for any attractions or restaurants you wish - extremely accommodating. We enjoyed the pool one afternoon - absolutely immaculate. We also took advantage of the cooking facilities in our room - there is a large grocery store a 5 min drive away. Would highly recommend this lovely spot and these lovely people!

The hosts were very friendly, and great about providing information and making dinner reservations. The accomodations were very comfortable and clean, and we loved the swimming pool. The optional breakfast was great too.

Best for those who seek a quite place with nice Azorean personal. The space is simple and appealing by its natural sincerity. Comfortable and with a pool to learn diving. Since the weather is good mostly all summer. No light around creates clear sky with stars - just perfect for night photography.

We had a fantastic time on Sao Miguel, our first time in the Azores, and a big part of this was the very comfortable accommodation we experienced at Pico do Refugio. The location is great, though of course you'll need your own car, with views to the sea from our apartment, which was up by the main house, rather than down by the old tea factory. Driving up to it each day was always a damatic experience.
The apartment itself was very spacious, comfortable and pleasantly furnished. We looked at some of the others and would have been happy to stay at any of them.
Some poeple have mentioned barking dogs. Yes, you can hear them but this is a not uncommon Azorean feature and didn't disturb our sleep at all.
The best thing about the place is the very warm reception from Mafalda, Ricardo and Manuel. They were extremely helpful and informative and made lots of helpful suggestions.
Breakfast was a great option to take. We had a bounteous breakfast hamper delivered to our apartment every morning. Delicious!

We enjoyed very much our holidays, nice and children friendly. Location is central if you have rented a car. The apartment is cozy the kitchen is well equipped. We stayed there with our little daughter and cooked everyday. If you want a calm place in a nice area Pico do Refugio is perfect, can recommend this beautiful place to families.
