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.

Summer holiday

This was our 4th visit to the Cerro Mar but the first in their latest block. It's about 12 years old and is kept in very good condition. The 1 bedroom apartment we had was the best equipped we have had. The lounge and the bed room both had air con. Much needed in the 33 degree heat. The apartment was cleaned every day. Not one cockroach or any kind of bug to be found. The pool was clean and the sun beds are good. It's the usual early morning towels to get the best spot. Kids stuff was mostly not working and the bowling alley had been out of action for 2 months. Disappointing! The staff were good but only good. They did just enough. I will bring my family back here again because the accommodation was better than expected and the old town square never disappoints. Highly recommended.More

Brilliant stag do

On arriving to cerro mar, witch was early, a few hours before check in. The very friendly staff said we could get changed in the changing rooms and store our bags safely in a room just off reception, and enjoy the sun and bar by the pool until the rooms were ready. There was quite a big group of us as we were celebrating our friend finally getting married. As a few of our friends have been to the resort before and new it accommodated large numbers for stag and hen parties (the worst best man ever) inside joke, booked this lovely hotel. We all had an amazing time and gave the Stag a bloody good send off. We were all very respectful of people in the hotel, as anyone knows stag/hen do's do get a bit loud and a lot of laughter is expected,it does not mean we were disrespectful. We were all polite to people around the complex and spoke to many of the guests, a lot of the guests joined in having a laugh and had a few drinks with us, some were interested in the golf ball game we had been playing the jerrasic park theme and the horse head.... I will say the bar staff were very good we didn't even have to order the 20 beers and 2 ciders they would just bring them when we needed them Anyway the hotel was great, good food, staff were very polite and accommodating, the apartments very clean, cleaners came every day and made the beds. Yes as all reviews state the steps down and up from the old town are a bit much for some people, I found it quite a good sobering up tool so by the time I was back at the apartment I was soberish. Hope this helps you chose a great hotelMore


overall very good

We stayed in the Atlantio Hotel next door room 415. Kitchen was excellent , Washing machine , Dishwasher, toaster. kettle & Coffee maker , If you were on self catering you could do with a microwave. The Room was cleaned every day and had a great balcony over looking the pool and sea. The walk down to the old Town Via the steps , well I'm a young 50 + and it was fine but if you get short of breath or use a stick you WILL struggle , young family with pram you should be OK. The location to the old Town is good and we loved the the atmosphere and buzz of it , a good mix of People. Now the bad Point.....Sun beds you'll have a fight on you hands....you've got to get down by 7am to put a towel down or no luck....The sign in the hotel says no towels but they dont enforce it , if they did it would stop any arguments . I did complain but useless ..... boss behind desk just smiled... Apart from that I would go there again...and take some Boxing gloves just in case.More

Was alright

Me and my fiancé aged 23 and 25 stayed in the hotel for 2 weeks. It had its pros and cons. Rooms are spacious, cleaned everyday and the maid did a very good job at it. The kitchen area was like being back at home. Dishwasher, oven, kettle, toaster, big fridge freezer & a washing machine. The 2 main cons of this hotel is that it allows stag parties! Whilst we were there, there were 2 lots. One group of at least 30 who were a tad rowdy but we're just having general fun amongst each other round the pool during the day. That was fine I can deal with that. However the other group were horrible. One day in particular they were sat on there balcony all day and all night till around 5:30am shouting and swearing and just being downright disrespectful to other guests in the hotel and apartments. Obviously the staff didn't bat an eyelid because they were getting they're pockets lined. The hotel also has security on at nights aswell but they may aswell of just stayed at home coz they didn't do anything. The second con is, if you have a late flight home don't bother asking if you can pay to keep your room on. Because you can't. You have to be out of your rooms by 11. We didn't get picked up till 7pm and it's a lot of hanging about. Albufeira in general is a lovely place but I wasn't overly happy with the hotel considering it wasn't cheap. More

Clean and spacious but noisy

Stayed in the apartments across from the main hotel. Large lounge/dining area, large bedroom, large well equipped kitchen, large balcony. Very clean, plenty of hot water. Location is very hilly, reached from the main square by very steep steps, nightmare for the unfit, people with limited mobility or couples with very young children needing buggies and lots of equipment. Choice of 5 pools, all clean and nice. I found this accommodation attracted a lot of young male parties who did not require sleep (only during the day) and belted balls from one end of the pool to the other. Glad my young grand children were not with me. I would not return here because of this. Please take into consideration that it was the European Football Tournament when I stayed here.More
