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 ;)

We arrived late afternoon for an overnight stay. The woman who greeted us didn't introduce herself and wasn't particularly warm or friendly, but she did offer to carry our bag up three flights. She was also very patient with check in procedures since we needed to get to an ATM. We didn't get to take advantage of the terrace or...

Bicuar was chosen as our second base while visiting the Algarves and after 5 wonderful days at Roaz de Bandeiras, we moved to Bicuar. We were given room 10, which Jeff, the owner, tells me is a last resort room. I can see why. We were right up the stairs from the main entrance so can hear all the ins...

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.
