Best place to stay in Olhao! Perfect location as its directy in the old town of olhao with 5 min walk to the train station and 2 min walk to the water front. Rooms are really clean and comfy. The roof garden is beautiful, and a lovely place to have breakfast or a few drinks at night. Jeff is a great host and is giving great recommendations where to go for food and "sightseeing". I will be back and I recommend this to anybody looking to stay in Olhao.


Welcomed with open arms by host. Very helpful, full of info regarding surrounding area and things to do. Hostel was cosy, clean and very nice. Definitely recommend this hostel!


Great place with a nice host and a beautiful view from the roof top terrace. I strongly recommend this place to everyone, who wishes to spend some relaxed days in Olão.

Pension Bicuar is a very lovely guesthouse! We enjoyed our stay, had a great time. It´s located in the middle of the center of the smale and lovely city Olhao. To the beach we took the ship to Culatra - and we had a beach almost for us alone:) Jeff is a really helpful and friendly person - he gave us many tips what we can do, and was always joking! One of the best guesthouses we´ve ever been!
