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.

Must Be Fit

Hotel and accommodation very clean. We had a two bedroom apartment which was very large, newly refurbished. Balcony was small ok for three people to sit and look out at the sea and town. Beware, the down side..... 103 steps to get into the town centre. We walked up and down at least twice daily "phew". The hotel advertised indoor bowling but it was broken. Also a shop across the road but we never managed to catch it open. Wi fi is pretty expensive 9 euro's for 90 min's. All the restaurant's and cafe's in the town let you have it free of charge. Also avoid the wine sold in the bar, all types very bitter. We stayed over New year and we enjoyed the buffet in the restaurant. It was a good night food was good quality and lots of choice. Included in the set price was wine with your meal and champagne at midnight. Cost of 40 euro's. From the bar area we watched a fantastic firework display that was being held on the beach where it was party time until the early hours. A tip if you are going in the winter time take warm clothing for morning and evening time it gets very cold.More

Great winter break...

Accomodation is of a good standard, our appartment was clean and newly refurbished and repainted with a new hob and oven in the well equiped kitchen area, it had a large fridge freezer a new jug kettle and toaster unfortunatly no microwave, the accomodation also had a good size lounge diner and included a four seater dining table,a leather bed settee and armchair also a large coffee table, the tv was an old style crt type 20in, not much choice only true entertainment and true movie channel and no music or news channel so take your own entertainment for the evening, there is a good mobile phone signal but only a pay for wi fi available in the reception area, we had a good sea view from our large balcony, our bedroom was nice with a large wardrobe and lots of drawer space, a safe in the wardrobe only 10 euro per week, air conditioning in the bedroom and lounge area, a fitted hairdrier in the barthroom and an in bath shower, we were in room 407 on the fourth floor of the Cerro mar atlantico in the building opposite the reception the building has a lift, the hotel has a very good restaurant next to the main reception, we had several evening meals the staff were very good and the prices were good too, the position of the hotel means that its proberbly not ideal for a young family with small children unless you have a car as the trip to the old town and beach means a lot of steps downhill aprox 100 in total, and then the trek back up later in the day very hot work in the middle of summer, if you intend to do some cooking there is a large Lidl and Aldi opposite each other about a 8-10 minute walk away.More

Going there with children? Think twice...

Went there with my wife, two children and a family of friends in December 2014. Cold outside, so we were relying heavily on the advertised facilities, especially the indoor pool, for everyone to have a good time. The room was great - large, clean and well-equipped, but no microwave as advertised. The hassle started when we hit the indoor facilities. The indoor pool water was cold. Not subjectively cold - according to the staff, the temperature was only 24ºC (I thought it was even cooler), which is fine is you want to cool off from the heat of the sun, but definitely not in the winter, at an indoor pool. I asked what was going on - they said they had to investigate (??). Took them 18 hours to confirm there was a problem with a part, which apparently could not be replaced quickly. Insanely, the same guys told our friends that there was nothing wrong with the pool and that the water was always that cold - so the only thing I really know is that somebody was lying! The jacuzzi was also not working. We wanted to hit the gym at least - children under 16 are not allowed!! My kids wanted to go to the games room - a majestic title for some game machines from the 1990's and two snooker tables. Not bad, my older son loves snooker. Guess what - both tables were broken. My friends like the sauna, but I wouldn't recommend the place if you go there with children, especially if you plan on using the indoor pool, as we did.More

My favourite place to be.

Really love cerro mar garden. 3rd time to stay here. stayed at 6 different places in albufeira always try a new one but coming back here. The whole area is spotless inside and out. Indoor pool is very big for a indoor pool. Has a Jacuzzi by the side of it and area near by with steam room sauna and another jacuzzi. You MUST wair a swimming cap. Cheap enough to buy cheaper to buy at home before going too. Views from apartments are fantastic looking out the old town. Stayed here as a family of 5. Two rooms. Asked if we could have rooms next door same as last year which exactly what we got. There is 98 steps down to the town. Which we all happy to go up and down. My boys are 5 and 7 managed them for the last 3years. Enjoy it now. Holidays usally are lazy times eating and drinking. It's a good way to work off a calories. If walking difficulties maybe book somewhere else. very near to the beach, nice walk through the town. This place is a great family favorite of ours. Thank you so much cerro mar. Great place and look forward to coming back again next year. The Harding's More

Fantastic hotel

Fantastic apartment , well equipped kitchen. Lovely staff. Great location. We stayed October half term and the weather was perfect. I needed an emergency dental appointment and they got me an appointment within the hour with an English speaking dentist. Can't get to see a dentist that quick in the UK lol. Great holiday.More
