Cerro Branco, Albufeira Portugal
★ ★ ★
A pleasant and well-landscaped self-catering operation which enjoys attractive views over Albufeira’s old town area and towards the sea.
The relatively close proximity of a variety of snack outlets, restaurants and shops compensates for the lack of amenities within the complex.
The mature and well-established grounds involve many steps which may well prove difficult for less agile travellers. Guests should check their arrangements for key collection if arriving out of hours.
A series of 3 conventional and modern looking white fronted blocks, located either side of the road. Some cascading vegetation adds a little style to the rather mundane appearance and numerous sets of steep stairways connect the accommodation and pool areas. Each apartment has a wide airy balcony with a metal railing.
Property type: Apartments
Built Year: 1988
Exterior: Staggered Blocks
A tiny reception area has limited opening times whilst a relatively spacious and functional bar overlooks the pool.
Steep steps monopolise the grounds, especially amongst the lower level accommodation areas. The gardens are well maintained and attractive with many flowering shrubs and plants. There is a limited supply of sun-loungers and shade around the sizeable pool.
Area Type: Located 500m N of Albufeira’s old town area, in a calm, elevated crescent, surrounded by apartment blocks with a selection of shops and a supermarket on the main dual carriage way from 150m away. The trek to the beach is down a rather steep slope and a series of steps. Bus stop 180m.
Nearest beach: 1km (Pescadores)
