      Hotel Caravales Madalena Pico Island

      Our room was on the outer edge of the hotel overlooking the back of a nearby bar/ restaurant,, not a good view. The balcony only had one chair which was broken, on the seconday, a second chair arrived, also broken. As always with Portuguese people, staff friendly and helpful. Hotel looking a little tired, in need of external decoration. Breakfast Ok, 3* standard.

      Good hotel

      Good hotel, located just steps from the ferry terminal. Good eateries are within a couple of blocks of the hotel. Breakfast is good.

    • 4.0.Fair

      Definitely not a 4 Star

      We arrived to the best hotel in Madalena and found out it was the only hotel in Madalena. Check in was easy that was fine, hotel is ancient. We arrived to our room to experience that sleeping on the floor would have been better then our so called mattress which was probably as old as the hotel. There are no food options in the hotel just a simple ham and cheese sandwich which was mediocre at best. Numerous noises at all hours when someone showers, construction from outside, not peaceful at all. Stay in a B and B Instead. I do have to say however the only positive is that we could walked the wine tasting and museum from the hotel. It was close by and so was Grutas Des Torres.

      Great location in the heart of the town but quiet. The room and beds were comfortable with a lovely balcony over the garden.

      The hotel is ok but not really exceptional! The breakfast is very good the staff friendly and welcoming! I reckon that the hotel building needs some modern update, however is comfortable!

      Best spot for touring.

      Great location to get to ferry and main sights. The pillows are a bit lumpy. The WiFi is only good in hotel lobby.
