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

Absolutely great, affordable and recommendable for a young couple due to its price and quality. Staff can't be any better, Jeff is so kind and helps anyone feel comfortable and relaxed, always asking for any issue or claim; and giving every hint and information on what to do in Olhao and nearby. The location is great, even if Olhao is... More

We were two couples looking for last minute accommodation in high season, so we didn't hold out much hope for the place. The minute we arrived at the front door, we knew we had found a gem of a place. The owner, Jeff, is very friendly and knowledgable about the area, it's history and wonderful restaurants around us. The pension... More

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

Staying here you feel that you are are very much experiencing the essence of the town. Jeff and Leonie have connections with, and links to many of the cafes,... More

I have stayed here at least yearly for longer than I can remember and it just gets better and better. This beautifully decorated and carefully and professionally managed hotel is a gem in the heart of the Algarve and can be unreservedly recommended. From the delightful rooms to the incredibly useful guests kitchen to the fabulous roof terrace with a... More
