Cerro Mar Garden Aparthotel  

Widescreen views and a first-rate spa make relaxing breaks easy at the Cerro Mar Garden Aparthotel.

This property is in an elevated spot, overlooking the sea and Albufeira’s cobbled old town. The beach is a 10-minute wander away, and the hotel’s shuttle bus will whisk you to the main square.

Interiors here are chic. The lobby, for instance, features a glossy tiled floor, cream walls and cocoa-brown furniture.

Fabulous family holiday

Visited Portugal for the first time during October half time. Stayed at the Cerro Mar Gardens. Have got to say the nicest self catering apartment we have ever stayed in. Fabulous kitchen facilities with dishwasher, washing machine, cooker, oven and full range of crockery. Spotless and clean. Maid service every day. Various swimming pools around the complex to use. We stayed in the block at the top of the hill on the second floor with a pool view. Lovely. The quicker way to town in down the 99 steps. First time down we required oxygen by the time we got back up but by the end of the week it was fine, we were running up!! Lots of lovely restaurants in the old town. Will definitely be back again.More

School break

Really lovely apts but u have to cross 2 roads from hotel reception to get to it, close to main square but if ur old r have walking disabilities r have a buggy then forget about it cause u have to walk down 97 steps to square and worse back up. Hotel is clean friendly and would recommend if u don't have any of above problemsMore

Lovely family holiday

Myself,my husband and 14 year old son stayed at cereal mar gardens for 10 Days during October half term. We had read reviews and thought it wood be ok for a relatively cheap break but the whole experience surpassed our expectations! Our 1 bed room apartment was on the top floor with panoramic views of the sea and old town,it was breathtaking and the balcony huge! The whole complex was lovely very clean great pools which were cold but refreshing! The bars and snacks very good value and plenty places to enjoy the views.the spa and indoor pool was a great bonus when it was not so sunny. Take a swimming cap for the indoor pool it's compulsory. The staff were friendly and attentive and Fillipa served us the best ever coffee every night after our trek back from the old town! Yes there are lots of steps which aren't steep. I personally loved the position of the complex as its was so quiet at night and the walk back burnt of the calories I'd consumed! The old town is great there tons of restaurants and bars. We used trip advisor to narrow it down and didn't go wrong. The prices were also very reasonable and didn't vary 1.50 euro for a pint can't be bad. Half the price of Spain! We met some lovely people who have returned many times so we are hoping to return in July as although the weather was pretty good, some warmer longer evenings would be great. All in all it was fabulous and despite the hard bed yes please change your mattresses!! We will defiantly be returning very soon. Thank you cerro Mar for a great holiday!More

Fantastic family holiday

Had a family holiday during the October break and decided to try Portugal as we have never been. Decided on the Cerro Mar Garden hotel as we wanted somewhere that could cater for all our individual needs especially on a self catering basis but still be part of a hotel complex. Have to honestly say that the brochure does not do the hotel justice. We had a fantastic apartment overlooking the pool and the town and viewing a morning sunrise was just breathtaking. The apartment was very clean and of a high standard of décor and all the facilities in the apartment were in great working order. We had maid service every day and all the staff were extremely friendly. Although the weather wasn't perfect it was a wonderful family holiday where I was able to relax and chill out whilst my husband and son made the most of the pools available. Only small downside was being in between two families with very young children so very noisy. On the whole would definitely stay here again.More

A great family holiday

This is the 2nd time we have been to this hotel, first time 2 years ago in August, this time in October 2015, both times have been a great family holiday, the hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff are really friendly with a lovely welcoming atmosphere, it's a short walk to the centre of town with some fantastic restaurants with 1st class food, great entertainment and a welcoming community, I would recommend both the hotel and town to anyone, come and see for yourself, I'm sure you will enjoy.....More
