As this quirky B&B only has two rooms, be sure to book in advance!

The owners, Maj (Maya) and Gino are some of the zaniest and most awesome hosts to be found in Olhao, if not the Algarve.


The B&B is stylish, furnished with eclectic art and featuring an imposing spiral staircase as the centerpiece. The rooms are comfortable with lots of storage and private bathrooms.

Our favourite part (aside from the hosts) was the private roof top terrace that provides an awesome view of Olhao and the port.


Location-wise, Casa MajGino is hard to beat.

A stone’s throw away from numerous lively cafes, bars, restaurants and gelaterias, you will not struggle to find a buzzing eatery nearby. The B&B is also no more than 2 minutes from the central marketplace that sells some of the freshest fare you will find in the Algarve (many Portuguese residents travel especially to visit this market).


Olhao is also the base of choice when visiting the large sand bar islands Culatra, Farol and Armona, which are accessible only by ferry.
