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

Very friendly welcome from Jeff at our arrival with good suggestions for our short stay. The room was small but clean and calm with the view onf the car free street. We appreciated the kitchen and the dining-room and of the course the wonderful roof terrace. It was just too cold to sit there (end of march). For our next... More

A super friendly welcome from Jeff as we arrived at this gem of a hotel. We had a sunny room looking onto the car free street in the old town, geraniums in our window boxes, and everything as comfortable as we like it. But is was the wonderful roof terrace with the a well equipped spotless kitchen for guests to... More

Geoff and Leonie go out of their way to make guests welcome and suggest activities. Room was spacious and the en-suite shower hot with a good flow, and the kitchen is a useful facility. There was no external noise to disturb us at night and we slept well.

Jeff and Leonie were super welcoming before we'd even arrived. Our room was certainly more hotel than hostel - a comfy bed, hot water and fluffy white towels. We made use of the roof top barbecue and the kitchen every evening and were constantly impressed with the high standards of the equipment provided and the cleanliness (I'm particularly picky about...

Once I saw the Portuguese marble stairs, the heavy velvet curtains, the wall decorations, the authentic reception desk in the entrance hall, I knew for sure that was the place for me! I made a reservation for two weeks. With the help of Jeff, the generous owner, I choose exactly the right room. It was cosy and comfortable, and the... More

Came accross Bicuar Pension by accident and so happy that we did. Initial greeting from Jeff was very friendly and informative, how could we not stay? Having seen all of the characterful individually decorated rooms we chose the only en suite room, close to the kitchen and the amazing roof terrace with lovely views. The whole building was immaculate and... More

Spent a week enjoying the rooftop terrace; had planned to eat out but the very nearby fruit/veg/fish market was more tempting and the BBQ ideal. This guest house is remarkably well equipped and owner Jeff was exceptionally helpful...he always just happened to be around when we needed him! We took a taxi from Faro airport as the signage for buses... More
