“Lovely apartment with a fantastic view”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Apartment spotless and very comfortable - had no problems with the beds. The view is fantastic and the pictures do not do it justice.

Just be aware there are a lot of steps both up to the apartment from street level and then down to the pool which is below street level. Most people will have no trouble with these but some older couples may struggle.

The pool area has plenty of sunbeds and is very clean but the snack bar is now permanently closed. It's a short walk into the town via the escalators where you are in the centre of everything.

I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and Cerro Branco in general.

We have been to Cerro Branco many times and this apartment is very very good. When we arrived we had immediate access, the apartment was spotlessly clean, first class kitchen and equipment and refurbished bathroom. You have everything you need here for a perfect holiday. The view from the balcony is outstanding, we sat for many evenings with a bottle of wine just taking the view in. One thing to remember though there are a few steps to climb. There are numerous restaurants in the Old Town which are a short walk away with escalators taking you down into the town. Philippa organised everything for us, together with the transfers. Everything was handled so efficiently. We enjoyed it so much we are again returning in 2016. Thanks Phillippa.

“First Class Apartment”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have stayed in this apartment before and once again it did not disappoint. Location wise everything that you would need is within a 10 minute walk, the beach, the old town and supermarket. The apartment was spotless on arrival and the transfers to and from the airport were seamless. The apartment has everything that you would need, perfect for a self catering holiday but the best thing about it - the balcony, large, spacious and the sun shines on it until late in the evening, perfect for those evening drinks!!

“Fabulous view”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Just back from 10 days at Vista Apartment. Some minor issues at the apartment, but these have been resolved. The balcony is a fantastic place to sit and look out over Albufeira, with the view fabulous.

Spacious apartment and overall a good place to stay. About 10 minutes walk from Old Town...turn left out of apartment, then down the steps on the left, then down more steps, in Old Town in minutes.

Dealing with Philippa Ward was a delight. Completely professional, and deposit returned without issue. First class service, totally secure way of paying.
