Just returned from a long stay at Cerro Branco apartment 255 and have to say that things are slipping as to cleanliness and quality. The apartment has stunning views over old Albufeira town but the complex is in need of a good clean. Somebody had spilt a fowl smelling liquid on the stairs leading to 255 and this took 3... More

Stayed the first two weeks in August. Apartment lovely - new kitchen and bathroom. Great location and only a short walk to the beach and the Old Town. Huge balcony with two sun loungers to enjoy breathtaking views. Plenty of room at the pool. Havana's Bar across the road is great and a must. I would recommend Cerro Branco and... More

Pros: fantastic view, spacious rooms. Cons: run down, cleanliness questionable, towels like sandpaper, pool is not nice by any stretch of the imagination and after 6pm local kids use as a public pool. To clean apartment you will have to buy your own products. Be aware not suitable if you have walking difficulties. Basic TV channels and no wifi.

Lot's of people in these apt, yet most of times felt like it was our own private pool. An easy, flat walk up... More

First time in Portugal and it definitely won’t be the last! Dealing with Phillipa meant that our trip went very smoothly – she thinks of everything, down to supplying a welcome pack so that you can have a cuppa upon arrival. She provided loads of useful information in advance about the best bars and restaurants and things to do in... More
