Our room had no arico. Luckily we had a 3 person room. So it was less hot, there is not always someone around. You have a phone numer, which you can call but don really like doing that
great location, good price-quality, friendly staff, breakfast basic but good

Not quite there
The room had no air con which meant it was extremely hot. To be fair I could have checked this in advance. Other than that the bed was uncomfortable which meant very little sleep. The shower was small with a curtain which wasn't the best.
The breakfast was ok, the location was decent, the attitude of the staff was excellent. The small apartment had everything you might need

Great stay on the Pico island
Not a lot of space to park a car at the property but there are a lot of parking spots in the town (free of charge)
Great view on the mount Pico from the balcony. The room was very clean and comfortable. The location is nice in a quiet street of the lovely town of Lajes.

Nice hotel, the best host!
There wasn't aircoditioning in the room but we could get a fan so that was good enough for us.
The host of Bela Vista was the best. We wanted to rent a car. Every rent a car on the whole island was sold out but she managed to get us a car for one day. She also booked us a whale watch trip. That was the most amazing trip! Comfortable beds and good breakfast. Nice location.

Very nice place to stay
The mattress was very hard. Air conditioner in the room would be really nice to have, because at night we had to close the balcony door because of the night birds loud sounds :), so it was quite warm to sleep like that.
We enjoyed our stay in Alojamento Bela Vista a lot, Pico view from the balcony, really good breakfast, friendly staff. We arranged whales watching with them with 20% discount and enjoyed it a lot! Taxi transfer from the airport is also cheaper with them.

Won't stay there again.
Not being given what I had booked.
I booked a room, as usual as I had stayed in Bela Vista for the past two years this would have been the third. When I got there I was given something else: it was an apartment with no windows except the doors which had only fishing net like fabric. There was no security for me, and it faced the first floor on the street. I had to chose between fresh air and security. I chose security. I will not stay with Bela Vista again. I would have been better off staying home.

Pretty good place to stay in Lajes, but a bit too hot in the room at night
- Even with the balcony door open, the room got pretty warm at night and it was a bit uncomfortable for sleeping. I knew there was no air con when I booked, but a fan would have been nice. Lajes is not as windy as I'd expected. - There are no shelves in the shower so you have to place your shampoo and bodywash on the floor of the shower. They do, however, provide bodywash and have a dispenser in the shower. - The window in our bathroom did not open. It got a little humid. - As mentioned in the info of this property, the hotel does not take credit cards, which is a bit inconvenient. Many places on Pico do not accept foreign cards, in fact. It's best to be prepared with cash.
- The staff members are exceedingly nice, polite and helpful. - The location of the hotel, near the sea, is great. - There's a great café right around the corner as well as a supermarket and some restaurants are within walking distance. - There is plenty of free parking nearby. - The breakfast is huge and delicious. - The view from our balcony was nice. - There are ATMs nearby. You'll need cash to pay for the hotel and most everything else on Pico, as foreign credit cards are not widely accepted.

Excellent base for whale-watching and exploring beautiful Pico
Spacious apartment with balcony right on the seafront and beside whale-watching companies and cafes. Two fin whales visible from balcony on second morning. Good welcome and friendly staff. Good simple breakfast. Relaxed ambiance but efficient too.

The owner was very kind, helpful and has really good English. Our room and the whole building was nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice too with a big selection of food and drinks.

I coudln't pay with creditcard.
Excellent location close to the harbour and whalewatching offices. The breakfast was fantastic with fresh cake every day, fruit and yoghurt. The staff very friendly and helpful. There was a little problem with the warm water and it was fixed imediately. The decoration of the interior is in very joyfull light colours. I got an upgrade so I had an excellent view too. The room and bathroom was clean.

All was superb.
Breakfast was the highlight - always great choice. The room was nice and the staff of the family-run business were simply great - always helpful and nice. They offer discounts on whale watching tour (which we took) - we definitely recommend it, great experience and all was well organized.

Fantastic location in Lages near restaurants, Bank and ATM, cafes, and the harbor.
Our timing - there was a high school girls’ volleyball team staying so at times it was a bit noisy but fortunately not while we were resting.
Fantastic breakfast with some different items each morning. Staff always helpful and welcoming. Beds were quite comfortable. Everything was super cleans and neat
