Hotel excellent in every way. Very good value for money in a lovely setting and worth the walk back up hill from the Old Town and Marina although best avoided in the heat of the day. However taxi only about $5. Ask for first floor room for the views. Dinner at hotel is a good idea if you have walking difficulties as very hilly area especially tiring in the heat. Mediterranean style food with large portions and three courses at evening meals. Food at breakfast and dinner is very good at the hotel. There is always a fish dish of the day as well as chicken or meat and also a choice of other meals if you do not like the fish of the day. Not sure if suitable for vegetarians but discuss arrangements with hotel prior to booking as they are very approachable and may be able to cater for alternative tastes. The hotel is in a beautiful setting and is perfect if you seek peace and quiet and a relaxing holiday. Very romantic and excellent for couples. Hotel is spotlessly clean and service excellent. Very comfortable rooms. Beds very comfortable and choice of pillows available. Towels for the pool can be hired from hotel to save carrying. Pool area is a beautiful tranquil place as well as the gardens surrounding it. Always a shady place for the hottest part of the day. Very quiet at hotel in the evenings. Plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely go back had an amazing time and didn't want to leave. Stayed one week 9th - 16th May 2012. Ten days would be perfect. Fourteen days maybe a little too long.

The best thing about my stay was...

Everything. Beautiful weather, rea, hotel, food, people. Would definitely return.

Excellent, relaxing hotel

We stayed in July 2011. Hotel very relaxing and quiet. Perfect for a week chilling out by the pool. Honesty Bar is great you just take what you want and write it in the book and pay at the end of the week..very reasonable too!! Wouldnt recommend it for kids cause there is no entertainment and its very quiet. The walk into the old town is all downhill and takes about 15 minutes providing you don't stop off at a bar on the way down. The Old Town is very lively with lots of bars etc and its cheap to eat out...the only problem is the walk back up (its very steep), a taxi is about 5 euros but at night there is always a massive queue and we had to wait 45 minutes one night!!

The best thing about my stay was...

Peace and quiet in a lovely hotel

relaxing break in traditional portuguese style hotel

We stayed over the Easter break and into May day. The weather varied from hot and sunny to showers and a thunderstorm. The Hotel is at the top of a hill which has a lovely view over other properties down to the sea. It was interesting to know that Cliff Richard had owned the original villa and it has now been extended into a hotel. The rules are very relaxed and the staff make you welcome, however there were very few guests on half board on our stay therefore the meals were waiter service rather than buffet. Whilst the meals were good, you didn't get much choice and if you were a fussy eater you would not be happy, however the few free drinks thrown in were welcomed (2 half bottles of wine and some minature port, plus orange juice). Air con was good and hot water was always on tap. There was never any problem getting a sunbed in the day and there was satellite TV in the room which was welcome at night as there is no entertainment. Overall we loved it and would stay again.

We liked the feeling of freedom at this hotel

Great value hotel

We had a weekend break here in April 2010, excellent value for money, only paid £66 for 2 nights B&B for 2 people. Hotel is home from home, it was Cliff Richard's old holiday villa. We had the place virtually to ourself. The British woman receptionist was very helpful and let us have a late check out on the day of departure. It's a great value hotel and i would stay here again as long as i have a hire car again as the hills are a killer

excellent hotel

this was our third visit to the cerro, and each time we have found the hotel excellent. iv always found it to have the feel of being someones home rather than a hotel. we love the pool area which is very quiet during the day but that might not be to everyones liking, and we will certainly be visiting again

Fantastic Holiday

A Small hotel that that is everything you would expect and a little bit more. The staff are excellent, very friendly and take a pride in their job. The Honisty bar work very well but watch the price's as they are in line with local resturants, not local shops. The hotel is about 15 mins walk to the town however it is at the top of a steep hill that may not suit some. A taxi from town cost under 4euro. We found it an ideal location to either relax in the sun or as a base to visit the local attractions we will return to this hotel again

Review of 'Cerro da Marina'

Se trata de un pequeño hotel con encanto. Las habitaciones son amplias y decoradas con buen gusto. La piscina cubierta permite darte un baño en épocas en las que resultaría impensable.<br /><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; El personal es muy atento y está dispuesto a ayudarte en cualquier momento, lástima que la recepción no esté abierta de forma permanente.<br /><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; El desayuno es copioso, variado y de calidad. No así la cena que repitió en cinco días tres veces los fritos.<br /><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; La localización fue un tanto compleja ya que la única dirección que dan es Cerro da Marina y no el nombre de la calle, siendo el cerro un lugar bastante amplio.<br /><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Hay que destacar la ubicación del comedor frente al jardín y a la piscina que permitían unos desayunos y cenas de lujo.

Review of 'Cerro da Marina'

Having just returned from spending the New Year in this hotel I am delighted to recommend the Cerro da Marina as a charming place to stay in Albufeira. The honesty bar, the roaring log fire in the cool evening, the small but efficient staff and the friendly guests made our week's break quite unforgetable.&nbsp;&nbsp;Being our first visit to this establishment, I would like to think it won't be our last.

Found the hotel and its staff to be just right for a mid winter break,providing a good service with fine foods.To choose what and when you want to do was like being in your own home,its such a relaxing atmosphere.Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.<br />A definate value for money venue,we will return.

A lovely, clean hotel.&nbsp;&nbsp;Staff very friendly and helpful.&nbsp;&nbsp;Our first time here but many of the people staying at the hotel had been five/six times before.&nbsp;&nbsp;Because of the size of the hotel people took time to talk to each other, especially over the free tea/coffee served at 4pm every afternoon.&nbsp;&nbsp;It was like staying in a private villa but still being looked after.&nbsp;&nbsp;Would definitely go back.

Relax and Enjoy Review of 'CERRO DA MARINA'

A second visit confirmed the first - enjoyable, relaxing, friendly and quiet. The views are wonderful, the exercise in walking to the old town or the new marina is necessary to walk off the good Portugese wine and food found in many restuarants.<br />We would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a bit of exercise, likes a clean quiet restful location away from the crowds <br />We will go again and enjoy the unique atmosphere whcih another guest likened to a private house, especially with the honesty bar.

Stayed for seven nights very good. honesty bar works very well. half board resulted in two buffet nights were we go a free bottle of house wine on each night. Sister hotel around the corner has nightly entertainment which your welcome to use.<br />One of the best holidays I've had
