Reviewed 27 April 2013

We recently stayed in this hotel for 26 days and I wish we could have stayed for 26 more. It is situated in a very quiet area away from the mainstream but only a 10 minute or less walk away from the town square.

The hotel is very clean and well maintained. Free WiFi is a plus also and works well.

Every member of the staff was helpful, courteous and very helpful. The reception staff are very helpful and friendly. They will call a taxi for you or arrange airport transfers.If there is an issue with your room, you will be given your choice of another room.Elisa and Eduardo in the dining room were very friendly and always made time to chat. The cleaning staff always greeted us. Even other guests said good morning in whatever language they spoke.

There was always a meat, fish and pasta choice at dinner with salads and vegetables. Breakfasts were great and we never went away hungry.

I would definitely go back to this hotel. It is great value for your money.

A very good hotel for the price. It has been there for a number of years, but the furniture and fitting are of a good standard. Nice terrace to the bar area. Nice pool area outside not heated though. Small pool indoors heated. Clean rooms and bathrooms with good room service. We hired a kettle for EU1.5 a night, a good buy as non are provided. The staff are very friendly and helpful. A special thanks to Paulo and Eduardo for there help and humour. Also, the ladies in the restaurant where the evening meals, and breakfast, are of a good buffet standard. If you want Ala-cart then you need to go off and pay a lot more for it. Wine and water extra. all in all a very good hotel in a nice quiet part of the old town and a nice 10 min walk to other areas, main square, beach, and the other way to the marina for a beer, and beaches beyond. A lot of hills but we didn't find them a problem and local buses on a special card you purchase are under EU1 per trip, or EU1.5 standard. A very nice holiday package with Jet2, or book direct with the hotel.
Regards, Bob and Heather room 202 week 4th April 2013.

Room Tip: All rooms quiet ask for one away from lifts.

just arrived back from out 2nd visit in 6 months. the hotel is lovely and i will recommend to all our friends , the views over Albuferia Bay are second to non, all staff are extremely friendly and helpful.the food is very very good with lots of choice, always something to suit everyone.Catalan (fish stew ) was one dish on the menu wow it was delicious ,i can honestly say we never had a bad meal in the 2 weeks of our stay.Some people have said the cost of a small fridge at 4 Euros a day is high and yes thats my opinion also , i think they should be free.The snack bar by the pool is dissapointing and rather pricey but other than that i simply can not complain about anything , the hotel is very clean, comfortable,and rather quirky :-) .some people we met have been going back year after year and i feel this will be the same in our case, Albuferia old town is just lovely , lots of little cobbled streets, nice cafes , and shops , the views are stunning.it is a rather hilly area but there is a bus outside the hotel taking you into the Square and also to the Bus station where you can get other buses to all places of interest ......looking now for the perfect time for a 3rd visit

Room Tip: rooms with a view of the pool all seem to be lovely , we also had one at the front of the Hotel th...

Good holiday,Hotel location good few minutes to beach and shops, room clean, and cleaned every day. Food was reasonable plenty of it and no restrictions on how much or how many courses you wish to have, something to eat everyday for my husband who doesn't eat meat. Friendly staff who were very helpful when asked. Entertainment in hotel was basic but ok. Beds were a bit hard but that;s down to personal choice.

Room Tip: Room 23 brilliant sea views

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Hotel do Cerro and loved it
- excellent room with very comfy beds and a lovely sea view. Staff were all
friendly and George in particular is lovely and extremely amusing. Resident
cats, Tommy and Shana, obviously love protecting their domain. We only stayed
on a bed and breakfast basis and breakfasts were excellent - lots of choice.
We will definitely return.

Hotel location is very good only 5 minutes walk to Albufeira old town and there is a city beach nearby. The hotel itself it is nice, rooms are basic nothing special,the worse thing is that you have to pay €4 per day to use little fridge - nonsense, of course we didn't pay that, there is a supermarket close by so we always had fresh and cold water or beer. The hotel charrges guests for almost everything, €5 for gym, €5 for sauna, €5 for jacuzzi soon they will charge for sun beds at outdoor pool! They have facilities for the 4 star hotel but nobody uses them as it is ridiculous to pay for everything that you expect to be for guests use, we have been to many hotels and nobody would charge you for fridge. The good thing about the hotel is that you have free internet, free parking and the dinner - good value of price and very good selection of food each night. Breakfast ok the same thing every day.
I would recommend this hotel but be aware of the extra charges!!! Albufeira is a lovely town!! Praia do Evaristo or Praia do Rafael were the best two beaches in the area! Must visit!!

We spend a week at this hotel at the end of February. There was quite a few older couples at the hotel compared to us being in our late twenties. There was a good range of food, all fresh with salad and fruit at breakfast and evening meal. The hotel was clean and everything you needed with helpful staff, cleaners, reception, bar and waitress.
Only disappointment was the swimming pool, which we decided not to bother with after reading other reviews, also to use the gym and sauna was an extra 5 euros, which if had been included we would have used.
The room needed a kettle to enable us to make tea and coffee in the afternoons or after dinner.
The hotel is a short 10 mins walk from the old town and a further 30 mins walk to the strip, but to go to the lovely coffee shops the hotel are ideal.From the old town there was a slight hill to walk back up too, which kept us fit!
The hotel is good value for Portugal, and when the weather heats up we will be back!
