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.

2 outdoor pools
The two pools are set together on the sun terrace, surrounded by palm trees comfy loungers, with straw parasols to keep the sun at bay. The larger, curvy pool is ideal for everyone who wants to swim, splash about or just float in the sun, whilst the smaller, circular pool is ideal for the little ones.
This small friendly, heated pool provides some relieve for those who are not sun lovers, or for when the weather misbehaves. Loungers line the sides making this a good spot to chill for a while.
Monte Verde is open for breakfast and dinner, and offers a wide selection of tasty local and International cuisine.

Had a lovely few days in the sun. Apartment had everything we needed and the location is fab. Just a few minutes from the square in old town. Great pool. Very close to Aldi and Lidl. Definitely coming back next year. More
Cerro Mar Atlantico self catering apartment
Dated rooms -no luxury no microwave just full sized oven. No guest soaps just a dispenser over the bath/shower who does not leave soaps or lotion products in this day & age? Only good thing- air conditioning in lounge & bedroom. No Safe - you have to pay €25 to obtain a barrel? To put in the safe? Pool area no control over what goes on rowdy families throwing rugby balls in & out of pool hitting innocent sun bathers! Would not dream of staying there ever again. Internet claims free- not unless you are in reception all the time.More

Clean hotel , staff pleasant, only thing wrong with it is choice of food is poor, and what food there is is cold , which makes it unpleasant to eat drinks in bar on the expensive side same again not great choice More
Given wrong apts
Just to start we have been to Portugal lots of times over the last few years.We are very precise about what our accommodation should be.and always pick only the best and so pay that bit more for that reason.In April this year we booked 2 bedroom apt in Cerro Mar Garden/Atlantico ..We put in special request to stay in main Building with sea or pool view,The hotel got back to us and said they were happy to request this at no extra cost .So off we went on holidays sept 4th 5 months after booking..Firstly we were put in apts further up hill ,not what we asked for,it was late so we left it till next day,upon opening patio door next morning we found a 6ft wall was our view,Went back to reception told girl we were in wrong apts we booked room in main building,she said was booked up and that was that Reluctantly we moved view was good, but then we noticed ants in both bathrooms and kitchen,told cleaners ,but nothing happened .Then we noticed a strong smell of rotten eggs everytime we entered our apts.Sick and tired at this stage we went back to reception once again to complain Where me the rudest staff we showed them e,mail they sent us last april about us staying in main apts.said they don't deal with booking.com whom we booked with ,asked to speak to someone else so supervisor came out and stated only those booking through booking .com stay in main building so we showed our e.mail booked through booking . com at this she more or less told us get lost. Hence this whole experience turned out to be worst holiday ever ...Would never recommend these apartments to anybody ever.TOTALLY Got ripped off by Cerro Mar WHATEVER YOU CALL YOUR SELF....AND YOU DON'T HAVE WIFI EITHERMore
Stayed here many times and love it. This time we were staying in studios (5 couples) and was a bit nervous as I had always stayed in 1 bed apt. Needn't have worried studios were extremely large and clean and even though we were on the ground floor had lovely views. Separate kitchen dining room and bathroom with twin beds in living room (thought we wud have to sleep on the pull out sofa so this was a bonus). Loads of pools in the 3 buildings to chose from each with a fairly priced snack and drinks bar (prob cheaper down town tho) Great area just being above the old town accessible by hotel shuttle (could do with more departure times and later times) and the dreaded steps. Have never minded the steps but unfortunately this time on 3 occasions manhole covers burst and sewage wasserping down the steps right into town. Found alternative steps by cutting through the Cerro Mar Alpique and used taxis (between 3-4€) old town was buzzing with a great atmosphere Love the old town love the Cerro Mar and would stay here again no problemMore
