Had apartment 236 wonderful view but that's where it stopped room was supposed to be upgraded but was tried and shabby no TV channels unless u like sky news and judge judy pool was abysmal how someone can say that it had looked good as it had just been surfaced I don't know no mats for pool beds no one attending to the pool and no one to keep out the noisy local kids from using it like a public pool from 6-9 pm bed was awful not for people with any kind of handicap minor or otherwise as steps to and from pool are plentiful oxygen will be needed and maybe a stopover. noise from bar street carries up to these apartments if your a light sleeper this will annoy you otherwise keep your doors closed and you will be fine my stay in Albuferia was great but I will not be back to these apartments I would give them a miss lots of others to choose from .

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.

Just back from Cerro Branco for the 2nd time. Apt still great,,plenty of space, nice & quiet, tho less than 10 mins to all the biz of the Old Town. Pool has been re surfaced, looks good. Lot's of people in these apt, yet most of times felt like it was our own private pool. An easy, flat walk up to the strip (15min). Already booked up for next year, that say's some thing, never been 3 times to same place on holiday. We used Funny Yellow Taxies for transfers, they were good 51 euro for a return transfer

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 the area. She also arranged transfers and taxi was there waiting for us even though our flight was early. Apartment complex is in a great location, close enough to beach and old town but far enough away to get 7 nights of peaceful sleep. Complex was very quiet and we had the pool to ourselves for a couple of days. We preferred to enjoy the sun on the large balcony – you can move in or out of the shade as required all day long. Apartment is comfortable and homely – not one of those ultra modern places where you are afraid to relax. Beds were comfortable and there was loads of room for 2 people. We had one small plumbing problem during our stay but it was fixed right away and we had no further problems. Looking forward to our return next year.

Hello Cathy and thank you for your positive review. We are so pleased you appreciate our service which is very important to us. We like to think of the little things such as making sure guests have a hot or cold drink on arrival without having to rush off to the supermarket. Providing washing up liquid and tea towel also means you have a few extra pennies to spend on yourselves and don't have to waste your money on the silly little things! I've always hated having to buy a huge washing up bottle, just to use a tiny fraction of it during the holiday! It's lovely to hear that you appreciate these little touches.

Thank you for being understanding about the slight plumbing issue and realising that sometimes these things happen and are outside of our control. The couple who look after the apartment for us are invaluable and always respond immediately to our guests' needs, so thank you for mentioning them too.

We certainly look forward to welcoming you back to the apartment next year and recommend you contact us soon to ensure you get your chosen dates as we are already receiving lots of enquiries.

All the best in the meantime.

Phillipa and Keith

I have stayed in apt 118 twice now, so it was that good i stayed twice! The first time was for a long weekend last Halloween (2013), and I have just come back from a week long stay in May. I found the apt on holidaylettings and dealing with Phillipa has been an absolute pleasure. She keeps in contact via email so regularly and it takes the anonymity out of the process. The apt itself is so lovely, with a beautiful view of the sunrise and sunsets and of course the beautiful Old Town, the pool is just a few steps away too when relaxing on the lovely balcony becomes too hot. It is so homey and well decorated that it doesn't feel like a holilday apt, more like your own home from home. Everything you need is there, and the welcome pack of tea/coffee/water/juice is indeed welcomed! I'd highly recommend this apartment and will be back soon!

Hello Martina and thank you for writing such a positive review. It's lovely to hear our efforts are appreciated by our guests.

A lot of our guests come back to stay at the apartment time and again, which speaks for itself. It is nice for us to deal with guests in this way too as it gives us the opportunity to build a rapport with you and we start to feel like we know you and can adapt our service to suit individual needs. One of the benefits of booking direct with the owners of course.

Returning to the same holiday apartment also gives you the chance to see that we respond to our guests' comments and we hope you both enjoyed the new shower and slept well on the new mattresses.

It's a shame we were already booked for the dates you wanted late summer this year, but we look forward to welcoming you back again soon to your home from home!

Best regards

Phillipa and Keith

We have just returned from a 4 week stay in 511 Cerro Branco, lovely good size apartment fully equipped modern kitchen with washing machine and dish washer!!!!.The view from the balcony was spectacular, looking over the town and Fisherman's beach. We were well looked after by Maria and Esmeralda. The town of Albufeira is quite hilly in parts but also pretty. The bus service is excellent for the surrounding area, and there is a large supermarket 10 minutes walk away which stocks everything you could think of. Will definitely return.
