We were greeted with a welcome drink and nibbles by our Australian hosts. There is a great view of Olhao from the hang out area on the roof. Nothing was too much trouble ..... loan of towels and beach umbrellas included. ..... a very pleasant stay in this fishing port.

We stayed here for 2 nights on an Intrepid tour. Jeff met us and after a brief stop at our rooms we met him over drinks at the roof top terrace where he explained everything in his lovely manner. The room was quite comfortable and had a fan for cooling. Not sure how it would be without air conditioning in... More

From the moment we arrived we were greeted with such genuine warmth and hospitality, it made staying here feel as comfortable as if I were in my own home. With clean rooms abundant with personality, a shared kitchen and the friendliest of staff, there was nothing getting in the way of enjoying a delightful coast-side holiday. The rooftop terrace was...

This pension is set on a very noisy street. If you have a room at the back the noise is not bad. If you have a room facing the street then the noise goes on all night. Completely impossible to sleep. The rooms are clean and the owner is very personable. There are shared toilet facilities on each floor. No... More

Stayed here as part of an Intrepid trip through Spain and Portugal and loved it! Cute rooms and a fantastic rooftop. Each room has its own shower but you share a toilet with others - no big deal from my point of view. Would love a hairdryer in rooms in future! Shared kitchen should you wish to use it and... More

This is a lovely B&B, centrally situated -friendly, beautifully decorated, lovely roof garden, comfortable rooms. Jeff was attentive and helpful -we felt at home. I recommend for families too as there is a kitchen if you want to use it. It was peaceful although near the centre -easy to walk to the train station, cafes all around.
