Loved the Cerro Branco - it was perfect for our age group 60+ - even though some of the apartments could have done with double-glazing because of the noise emanating from Bar Street until 2am each night. We have been to Albufeira Old Town before and were aware of Bar Street and its noise levels - so took ear plugs to counteract! Ideal location downhill all the way into town - all of about 15 minutes slowly strolling and not much different uphill and not a difficult climb. Modello and Pingo Doce supermarkets a 10 minute stroll away with taxis outside if you choose not to hire a car. Immediate area has a bank with cash machines, small supermarket, newsagents, several bars and nice restaurants - including the one in the hotel. Wonderful view from the Panoramic Bar at the Cerro Branco. Although the apartments were getting quite old they would definitely need air-conditioning outside of September to May but would stay there again.
