Stayed here for a football tour recently, hotel is in a good spot for the old town, just down the steps (200 odd) of them, a struggle walking back up especially after breakfast or a few beers.
Rooms were clean, washing machines included in room, 412 end of corridor was a bit bigger than others, maid cleaned around us if needed, with no fuss.
a few of us had breakfast in hotel, 7.5Euros I think Buffet style, not bad no mushrooms and sausages bland but just being picky.
Didn't use the restaurant
Nice pool area, and small bar but seemed to cope, sauna, spa pool included and although didn't use it others did and said it was very nice.
Local shop 30 yards away for shopping.
All considered a decent place and would go back there again.More
Another great visit
Felt at home the minute I walked in the door of the apartment, we had the same one as last year. Really clean in fact spotless the maid came every day and changed the towels the bed linen was changed mid week and the apartment was cleaned daily,couldn't ask for better. Was kept fit walking up and down the 98 or so steps to the old town but after a good meal in one of the many restaurants it was a good way of keeping fit.More
Cleanest Apartment I've ever stayed in.
With a family of 13 we stayed in Cerro Mar Gardens first week of May. We had 3 apt. Booked. We arrived early (before 10.00 a.m) and although check in wasn't to be until 2.00p.m as we had a small baby with us one of our 2 bedroomed apt. Was ready within a very short time. Reading some of the reviews before we went on holidays I wasn't sure what to expect. People moaned about this and that. To be honest everything was so good. Perhaps we were lucky the apt.was modern comfortable and had washing machine, dishwasher everything we needed except a microwave. We managed for sterilising baby bottles without it. The cleanliness was superb.Quiet hilly where it is situated 90 plus steps down to the square but taxis are cheap (just over 3â¬) Unfortunately weather was not on our side. It was horrendous rain ,storm, thunderstorms, for 6 of the 7 days. Would definately return if going back to Albufeira. More
Thomson holiday to Cerro Mar Garden
My wife and I stayed there for 7 days in May 2016 with her sister and her husband. The 2 bedroom apartment (number 418) was excellent it had a dishwasher, washing machine and a fully equipped kitchen (although we did not use any of these), apart from no microwave. The apartment had a sea view from 2 of the 3 balcony's.The in room safe was broken so not worth paying 10 euro for access and no internet access in this apartment. The hair dryers in both bathrooms were broken. The apartment was cleaned and clean towels provided every day. The room were spacious and plenty of room and equipment for the 4 of us. We went half board and the food was not really up to much, no fried or boiled eggs, only runny scrambled for breakfast and most of the food was not very warm even for the evening dinner. The food variety left a little to be desired.The outside pool was quite large but cold and the there was never enough sun beds as the Cerro Mar's sister hotels were able to use all of this hotels facilities. The hotels position was on a steep slope, uphill was access to Aldi and Lidl supermarkets about 15 mins walk away and the old town with all its bars and tourist shops down hill via about 100 steps, which was tough walking back.More

Fabulous hotel, fabulous holiday
A bit of a delayed review... We stayed here for a family holiday in July 2015 and had a fabulous break , the room we were allocated was bright , spacious and well equipped the double balcony was a surprise with a fabulous seaview being a bonus , staff friendly and very accommodating It's on a bit of an incline but nothing too troubling for us and it's a gentle slope. The facilities are good , tennis court, spa and gym area , lovely food in the cafe , reasonable prices too, we didn't try the restaurant as went out to the various restaurants in the town. The hotel were very good at organising a private transfer for our daughter who joined us after a week which put our mind at ease as she was travelling on her own to join us and its a little way from the airport . We did a few of the trips, a day trip to Seville which is a must see , a boat trip to see the Dolphins In their home turf ,so to speak ,which was brill and paddle boarding , fun for my husband and children ( I stayed behind as not a great swimmer and relaxed by the pool) beach amazing ,hiring a bed is a must , the sand gets hot!! but very reasonable All in all a fabulous and relaxing break , the resort is beautiful More
