I stayed here for two nights and it was such an enjoyable experience! The owners are so friendly and have a great knowledge of the area - so hit them up for some local recommendations. The rooms are clean, quant and quiet and the rooftop terrace is amazing! The only reason I gave the rooms a 4/5 is because there... 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.

I stayed here in August for two nights as part of an Intrepid trip. It was one of the best places we stayed in. Jeff the Australian owner and his wife Leonie made us feel like it was our home in typical Aussie style, proving free drinks on the rooftop when we arrived. Beautiful views of Olhao and the stunning... More

This pension is run by an Australian couple who make you feel very welcome straightaway. Their pension is very attractive and right in the middle of town. It has a rooftop for drinks and relaxing and you have a wonderful view of all the town, especially at night. The only thing is you share a toilet which at first I... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the pension for five nights. The host was incredibly welcoming and accommodating, which is really appreciated when you arrive into a new place at midnight. Jeff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The roof garden is beautiful, and a lovely place to have breakfast or a few drinks at night.... More

I stayed here for 10 days in April 2014 and earlier in January and found it utterly charming and the management and quality second to none. The hotel and its rooms are spotless and the staff friendly and helpful. In January I needed a doctor to treat a heavy dose of flu and the owners Jeff and Leonie arranged a... More
