Hotel is in the city center, on one of the most popular streets but no noise is coming through it to the rooms. Its a good pension and value for the money, however do not expect luxury. Its more for backpackers then those looking for some extra comfort. At the end you are not going to spend your days being... More

We booked at Pension Bicuar only for 4 days but I have to say we would love to stay more! It was a unique experience! Jeff, the owner, is an Australian fellow with a great sense of hospitality! We arrived quiet late but he waited for us and he explained us everything about the town and day trips! The hotel... More

What a great place to stay! Jeff, the owner, greeted me with open arms and introduced me straightaway to other guests and the staff working there. I felt instantly at home, and it was very hard to leave after two weeks. My consolation: I will be back. The place is centrally located (only a few minutes to the market halls... More

We had a warm and welcoming reception by Jeff, the owner. He is a great host and it is a family feeling staying here. Clean and tidy everywhere. Though quite steep stairs between the floors. The best part was the roof-terrass with a view over the coast-line and the city. The kitchen is open for everyone staying in the house... More

If you like staying in modern or impersonal hotels you should not book into Pension Bicuar. It is very quaintly decorated, the rooms are small and, at least in our room, the bed was rather creaky. Despite that I am giving it a rating of very good as we enjoyed our stay there so much. It is a charming pension... More

Pension Bicuar is absolutely fantastic. The roofterrace is amazing. Every thing is very clean, the rooms are comfortable and the location is quiet but in the heart of the old authentic town. The town is beatifull with all its old houses. Life runs slowly and the every day market with fresh fruit, vegtables and fish is perfect buing every thing... More

Australian owner Jeff and his wife Leonie were very welcoming when we pitched up at 10.30pm straight from the airport with our two young children. We were immediately shown the charming roof terrace and its twinkling lights looking out over Olhao and introduced to the other guests enjoying an evening drink. Our family room was fairly basic but clean and... More

This is one of the places you feel home while travelling. Actually this is a lie! Because at home we do not have such a beautiful with plants and flowers decorated roofterrace with 360 degree view over Olhao. We also do not have so many handmade old furniture and a huge barbecue on the top, followed by a always clean... More
