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.

Highly under rated

Visited here in July 2016. Arrived at the hotel and it looked lovely and clean. We booked in and were given our room on 6th floor. I'm not a lover of heights but I was so glad they had chosen this room. Our room was a 1 bed limited sea view room, not sure why it was limited as this is one of the biggest and best rooms I have stayed in. The front room was huge, it had big dining table a settee and a pull out bed. The balcony was huge, in fact it was 2 balconies, you could have slept a further 8 people on it. The view was stunning, you could see into the old town and the beach. There was a full size fridge freezer in, also to my surprise there was also a dishwasher and washing machine. The pool was not huge but big enough for all, most days we got a sun lounger which was a bonus. It had a small kids club, a spa, indoor pool and various other things. One of the best thing was that they didn't have silly entertainment on at night, no noise at all as even though we have a 10 year old you can get sick of mini discos. The hotel is situated on a hill so not suitable for anyone with mobility problems however most of albuferia is. The old town is 5-10 mins walk, straight down 99 steps but you can go the road way and get a lift to the beach. Overall this was our best family holiday to date, we all can't wait to go back again as the people are great, friendly and will go out of their way for you. See you next year Cerro mar gardens.More

Fab stay, great location

We stayed in the first floor of the Atlantico. The rooms were spacious and spotless, great facilities in the apartment. We overlooked one of the smaller pools which was good as it was quieter and seemed easier to get a sunbed...eventually! It's great for families and children...we were two adults but enjoyed it all the same! Had a massage in the Spa but I wouldn't recommend it. The girl didn't seem to have a clue what she was doing it. I asked her to apply more pressure and that lasted for about two seconds. Very disappointing. On the day we were due to check out, we were called from reception a half hour previously reminding us of check out time and the cleaning staff arrived ten minutes later and then waited outside the door while we got our stuff! Overall, we really enjoyed it and would stay again. It's very close to the old town, literally a short walk down 100 steps! 45 min walk-ish or 5/10 min drive to the Strip. Also, you have to pay for WIFI in the hotel and it's very expensive.More


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
