Cerro Branco Apartments
Ranked #78 of 154 Hotels in Albufeira
Reviewed May 29, 2005

We stayed in the Cerro Branco apartments for 5 days in April 2005. Weather was great, around 72 centigrade every day. The apartments are situated at the back and overlooking the old town fishermans village, 10 minute walk away. Great views over the old town & beach. The pool looked great, but it was early April & a bit too cold for anyone. The room was really nice & clean with a suntrap balcony, some overlooked the pool, but not ours. The staff seemed friendly enough, tho if want a long lie, leave you key in the door from the inside to avoid the cleaners coming right in. They will of course shout before they come in, but it doesn't stop them. There is a bar within the flats which is cheap with spirit measures unbelievable. It also does light snacks, nuts crisps etc. Almost right next to the apartments are a variety of restaurants, a couple of bars and plenty of local supermarkets. There is an English restaurant locally run by an Edinburgh couple, very friendly & great food. Prices around same or cheaper than UK, 16 euros for T bone steak. If you have mobility problems ask for a ground floor flat, also access to the pool is down a steep flight of stairs. Our flat was on top floor, not a problem if you're reasonably fit. One thing I would add, the Portuguese are very friendly, always eager to please. Loads of pedestrian crossings ... and cars do stop to let you cross. One to watch.. don't be taken in by the free scratchcards given out in the Montechero 'strip' area, it's a con to entice you back to a hotel and get you to part with around £2500 for starters, as a member of a holiday club. You have been warned. Enjoy your stay in Albufeira, we will definitely be back.

A lovely facility, very favourably priced and terrific staff. Enjoyed a week-long stay at the apartments in Ocotober and would recommend them highly. Gorgeous pool, easy walking distance to the terrific lower-town centre and nightlife and a most enjoyable restaurant/bar overlooking the pool.

My third-floor room had spectacular views across the community, out to sea and down to the pool.

The apartments are spacious, utilitarian in style, well equipped and perfect for a short or long stay. Friends staying at a more up-scale and pricey complex said Cerro Branco was significantly better.

Although just home now for less than a month, plans are already in the works to return to this lovely area of Portugal and the Cerro Branco facility.
