Cerro Mar Colina  

The Cerro Mar Colina offers a choice of pools and a great line-up of activities, all topped off with sweeping views of Albufeira.

From its hillside position, this place comes with spectacular views over the Atlantic Ocean and Albufeira’s terracotta-topped old town. You can walk to the sandy shoreline in 5 minutes.

Interiors are lovely and bright, with whitewashed walls and plenty of sunlight that streams in through floor-to-ceiling windows. Apartments carry the white motif, too, and they’re finished with simple furniture and sun-trap balconies.

This hotel is part of our 3T favourites range until April 2017.

3 night girls holiday :)

Just got back from a 3 night stay here with friends - this place is fantastic! Perfect location just above the beautiful old town, beautiful views and pools. The apartment was basic but clean - we were in one of the older blocks but would imagine the ones overlooking the main pool are lovely. For what we paid we were happy. Only niggle was the hairdryer didn't work. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was good, staff lovely. The lady behind the bar in the evening is a star and makes fabulous Mojitos! The best we came across in the whole town and for 5 euros! We would definitely return to this place, either as a group of friends again or with families - great place for children too.More

Stayed in apartment 107 Cerro mar, I had asked for a pool view but was disappointed with what we had .... It was on the ground floor our only view was out the back with bushes and trees and a wire barbed wire fence ... Which was not very nice to sit out in the evenings ... Room was kept clean everyday with fresh towels which was nice. On the Wednesday we had a BBQ on the roof top which was lovely as it was a live euro 2016 game on with Portugal playing it was very nice. One downfall was every morning at 8.30 whilst going to eat breakfast all the sun beds had towels on them although reception stated that you can't do this, people still do and on one day we noticed that one family had put towels down and returned at 4.30 to sit on the beds ..... Nice hotel, nice staff and very clean we will return next year More


Beautiful hotel

This hotel is amazing I was quite shocked when we pulled up outside to see how beautiful it was!! Not to mention all the different swimming pools it has!! It is a 5 minute walk from the old town (prepare for the 100 steps up the hill when you come back though) there is so much to do in the old town not to mention being a 5 minute walk from the beach!! All the swimming pools were amazing and the one by our apartment even had a pool bar!! This hotel is a €5 euro taxi away from the new strip which is insane and suitable for all ages! We did walk to the new strip and that took us 20-25mins! The new strip is very lively full of lots of bars and stag do's. Overall we loved staying in this hotel the room was huge with a fully equipment kitchen, fridge cooker utensils ect along with a dining room, bathroom and living room! It's so quiet at night so you can get a good night sleep! If you are disabled or requiring a wheelchair/scooter it is very difficult to get to places from this hotel as there are lots of steps down to everything as this hotel is at the top of a very big hill! My father in law had a scooter and to get back to the hotel from the old town he had to drive all the way round where the cars go, but apart from that it was amazing!!! More

I booked a 7 night holiday on a bed and breakfast basis, you book in at the hotel, we stayed in the garden apts which was a short walk from the hotel, we booked in at 1.30pm our room was ready, staff very helpful at reception and gave good directions to our apts. the apt was spacious and well equipped, and we had a garden view and a sea view. The apt was cleaned every day and the cleaners were very friendly. The pool area were kept very clean and the staff very friendly. The breakfasts were very nice plenty of choice and all staff very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.More
