Pension Bicuar Residential
Ranked #4 of 16 Olhao B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 April 2017

This time we were only staying in olhao for two nights. We needed something central, reasonably priced and flexible. Geoff and his wonderful guest house definitely fitted the bill. We had a wonderful stay and thoroughly enjoyed having the flexibility of buying pastal de natas and taking them up to the roof terrace with tea and coffee from Geoff kitchen in the morning watching and listening to olhao waking up! Thank you for a wonderful stay Geoff and for making the reservation for us at Tosca restaurant, it was brilliant! The room we had was on the top floor with lovely views over the roof tops. The room was clean and tidy in typical Portuguese style, so not your white starched modern look! Had a wonderful stay, thank you Geoff.

Room Tip: Go for the top if you don't mind the three small flight of stairs, its worth it.

Run by a lovely Australian couple - Leonie and Geoff and their wonderful staff. Drinks and dinner on the roof top is wonderful. They have a bbq and kitchen available if you decide to have dinner in. Very centrally located.

Our first stay in Portugal & with airbnb at Jeff & Leonie's wonderful guest house. Great situation, room was nice & big, great kitchen to make our own breakfast & magnificent roof top terrace to eat it and have our approach in the evening. Very clean and cleaning ladies were super helpful - as we're Jeff & Leonie. Only negative point - no WC in room - had to share! But the toilets were also spotless. Thanks for making our stay memorable x Chrissie & Johnny from Waterloo, Belgium

Geoff and Leonie are warm and welcoming. The pensione is clean and comfortable in a superb location.
The availability of a kitchen was a bonus and the rooftop view spectacular. Short walk to restaurants and cafes and if you are there on a Saturday you can visit the local produce market and sample the lical speciality - figs stuffed with almonds ... yum.

Nice vintage pension in the center of Olhao. Lovely staff, especially Australian owner Jeff, who's always busy to make everyone feel comfortable. They also have a cool rooftop terrace to see the sunset! Only thing is the beds; for a tall Dutch man they're a little bit to short ;)
