Loved this place, typical pension, our room had a balcony overlooking the narrow cobble streets, we left the door open at night for any breeze, lovely and quiet but the odd person chattering as they went home at night. We had a shower ensuite, and a shared toilet in the hallway which was not a problem. Jeff the owner was... More

Have just returned (today) from yet another wonderful stay at Pension Bicuar. I have never stayed somewhere with such a friendly welcome from the owners Jeff and Leonie and this lasted throughout the stay, how many places do you stay that the owners know you by name. We stayed in a lovely room at the front which had two balconies... More

From the delightful rooms to the incredibly useful guests kitchen to the fabulous roof terrace with a... More

I have just returned from a 3 day break at Pension Bicuar in Olhao. I was travelling solo because my husband cancelled at the last moment because he was unwell but I have also been to this hotel with a group of friends. It is just such a welcoming place. I felt really safe as a woman travelling alone. The... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Hosts were lovely but ultimately the shared loos let it down.. The Roof terrace offers lovely views and location is central (opposite an amazing Indian restaurant) and very close to the waterfront and markets.
