This is a fine hotel, when you want a quiet holiday and can manage to get around by yourself. The hotel is located just outside the city centre in the marina area. It lies on top of a hill, which allows you to view the ocean from the hotel. It does mean that to go out for dinner or drinks... More

We choose this hotel from a travel agency website where it had been given a lot of good reviews. In comparison to its sister hotel, it was the one that seemed more for adults as opposed to for families. One piece of advice - if you are staying in Albufeira, you definitely need to rent a car. The good The... More

This was our first trip to Portugal and hopefully won't be our last as we loved Albufeira and the Cerro da Marina. The hotel is a little way outside the Old Town but this makes for a good walk if you have eaten out for the evening with some good bars to stop off at on the way. Hotel staff... More

This is an excellent hotel. Food was very good. Breakfast buffet style. Dinner had to be ordered in the morning as not many guests stay for half board. Pool very good and quiet, plenty of sun beds. A bit out of the way and not good for those who do not like to walk up and down the hills, although... More

We stayed at this hotel last week for 5 nights. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing break you would not find one much better. The staff were really good, the honesty bar highlights whats good about the whole set up around this hotel. The room and the pool area were both spectacular,i can not say anything bad... More

Hotel is set in a lovely position on the outskirts of the old town. However this hotel is in need of a refurbishment as the interior is very dated and in places quite shabby! Great shame really as this could be made into a 4 star hotel. The hotel seemed clean at the onset but it soon became apparent that... More

This Hotel is the best I have ever stayed at. It is small, with only 24 rooms. Very friendly staff and very helpful Reception Staff. The owner is on hand to answer any questions and is also very friendly. The Rooms are large and airy with a balcony overlooking the Gardens. The Pool area is very pretty and relaxing. There... More

Just returned from the second stay this year and chose to visit again to celebrate my birthday as the first stay was so good (the card signed by the staff and complimentary bottle of sparkling wine were a very nice surprise and much appreciated). The staff are very professional, attentive, and are always willing to help and offer advice regarding... More

Very relaxing stay at this lovely property. A little out of Albufeira - 10 min walk from the centre - it seemed to enjoy a more mature clientelle which was fine. Led to believe that Albufeira was party central, I was pleasantly surprised to discover how quiet the hotel was at night. Independent travellers seemed to be something of a... More
