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

I stayed 2 days in room no 25, with 2 french balconies. Many steps inside the house leads to rooms and further to the half outdoor shared kitchen... More

Great hospitality and a very friendly and helpful host, charming rooms and decoration, extremely clean all over the place - and on top a terrific roof terrace with great views of the city and the sea.

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

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
