ALDEIA DA FONTE, SILVEIRA, LAJES DO PICO

just posted this on tripadvisor

back again to this rustic 25 yr old resort , ecological place, Contrary to some reviews here I like the place as is although air con could be advantageous in summer and winter.. A bit more care with maintenance of the rooms should occur (rusty bathtub is easily solved) and the little electric car for the cleaners should be used to transport the luggage always a problem for aged people with walking limitations as ourselves. Nevertheless I will continue to come and stay here whenever I can… Staff is always top notch, reception front desk always kind, attentive and gentle ( (thanks Paulo 5 star memory and attention to detail),), the staff in the dining room was quick to know (all 6 or 7 of them that my nespresso coffee is shorter than a Ristretto and always acknowledged it, any time of the day…earned that, unfortunately some of them are college graduates that could not find jobs and earn some money in summer…food is still quite good, steak was yummy on every 5 dinners I had there..tried them all, my son enjoyed Chinese food and my wife adamant on fish every night..no complaints on the food. Wish I could have stayed there the whole year, and that is the best way to describe my 3rd or 4th experience there… https://www.facebook.com/chrys.chrystello/media_set…
