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.

We had fun
Stayed for 23 nights in Feb/March - everything was as advertised. Well stocked kitchen but we did pick up a few things that were missing - like a vegetable peeler and some plastic glasses. Used the indoor pool several times and laid out at the outside pool most days. Some days it was up to 25 degrees. Nights were very cool. You needed long pants, socks and shoes and sweaters! Overall enjoyed our stay except for two things. First was the position of our room. It was right across from the elevator and it could be very noisy with people's dragging luggage across the tiles in the mornings. And people laughing and talking as they got on or off the elevator. We asked several times at the front desk to change rooms but we're always told there were no rooms to change to as some rooms were reserved for their long stay guests. The second thing was the way everything was extra. Want a microwave? Want a lock for the safe? Want a lounger for the balcony? extra charge. And cash only - you couldn't charge it to your credit card. I happened to get a deal for the wifi - one device only for â¬45 for 30 days unlimited but it was usually 15 days. Oh - the stairs to town weren't that bad. I found them easy as they were quite wide .More
Recommended if you don't want wifi, a balcony with sun or a nice view.
We've been here a few times before and found it was really nice, however our most recent trip was thoroughly disappointing. We arrived to the standard room however found our view was of a deserted wasteland and a motorway and the room had no wifi access (pictures attached). We asked to be changed room at reception but were flat out refused and reminded that they didn't guarantee views or wifi. We were referred to the Thomson rep Erica who was useless - she either was totally unwilling to help or literally was so out of her depth that she couldn't work out how she could help. Abysmal. Basically, we would recommend this hotel if you want no guarantee of any view and no guarantee of good customer service to boot.More

Rudest reception lady
We stayed here last week for a week. My daughter and her friend bought 2 Wifi vouchers for 8 euros for 2 hours (these didn't work). When the lady in reception was told the cards didn't work she claimed the girls had used them which they had not. This lady continually accused my daughter of being a liar which is absolutely obnoxious given the money we paid to stay in this hotel. This was a very regrettable episode and the reason I would not recommend this hotel at all. Treat your guests better please.More

Another fantastic stay
Just returned from this hotel .Its our third stay there .The hotel was great ,clean,welcoming and staff helpful and friendly.We were half board and food was fantastic lots of choice and variety .The maid service is daily and they were all lovely .We booked through Thomson and the Rep was lovely her name is Erica.We didn't attend any welcome meeting by the Rep ,but she posted some information under our door which was very informative and helpful .There was a mix up and we were down for room only instead of half board but hotel staff sorted this out without any problems .The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely and the staff great .We will hopefully return next year More
Wonderful apartments - beautiful location
Superb location and wonderful apartments - Special mention to our maid Titania on the third floor who looked after us so well. She is a credit to The Cerro Mar. The reception staff need to smile more but were efficient in what they did. I highly recommend these apartments.More
