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!


Loved it! Very clean, good cooking space, and the rooftop is fantastic. Jeff is very accommodating and is great at ensuring everything is okay. Will definitely be back during my next visit to olhao.


Lovely pension in the center of Olhão. Simple, but very nice and clean rooms. Amazing rooftop with view at the sea for breakfast and dinner. Thx for having us, Jeff. Nicolas and Sandra


We can' t say enough about Pension Bicuar. The room was very clean, shower was great. Rooftop garden is beautiful and the pension is in a perfect location. Jeff is a wonderful host, very helpful with suggestions of where to eat and what sights to take in. Jeff went out of his way to return some items that were left behind which we greatly appreciated. Wonderful breakfast place just around the corner, everything is within walking distance.. Our favorite place in Portugal .


The pension is in olhao, a little town or agglomeration, not in faro itsself. It has a beautiful roof terrace and the owner is very kind and helpful.


What a fantastic place. The room was beautifully arranged, and the rooftop terrace was amazing. Jeff and Leonie were great hosts, going out of their way to make sure you have a pleasant stay. And what a lovely surprise to hear a familiar accent among the Portuguese! The pension is very close to the ferries out to the islands and their beaches, as well as the main markets. Will definitely return next time I'm in the Algarve!


To be fair, I've been spoiled by great hostel experiences across Europe. Unfortunately this one didn't measure up. Jeff is a great host and the hostel location is perfect if you want to see Olhao. Apart from that though I wasn't overly impressed. It was a far older crowd of guests than I'm used to and all the rooms are close together and on the main stairway which is quite noisy - I didn't get much sleep at all because of the people coming in late / waking up early.
