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.

wonderful 5 days
Arrived here 0n 15 April for 5 days Had requested a room before near the main reception we had room 505 just across the road excellent views big bedroom and kitchen and sitting area lovely balcony dish washer and washing machine. Room service every day. Now for the 100 steps my partner uses a stick and managed to go down twice per day got taxi back about 3.5 euros. There was a courtesy bus a few times a day to the square but not at night. We never used the restaurant or spa but looked good. Drinks in the hotel bar were cheap. Bar staff great also reception. Would definitely be back.More
family holiday at easter
This complex was exceptional, we stayed in a two bed apartment which had 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen/diner/living room. The kitchen had a dishwasher/washingmachin/coffee maker/large fridge freezer, a table with 6 chairs and a balcony also with table and chairs. The room was modern and clean as was the whole complex, the staff were very friendly and helpful. there were two pools one inside and one outside, there were more than enough loungers by the pool and we always had one whatever time we went to the pool. The restaurant was good value and the food excellent although we had to wait for the food at times. The old town and aldi/Lidl are a short walk away, however the complex is on a hill so beware. The only down side to this complex was the amount of stag and hen parties and the hassle this caused, ie chanting at night/swearing/boisterous behaviour around the pool, not sure if its normal practice to have these gangs but for this reason only i would not return with my family. + + +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++More
Had a wonderful stay in Albufeira, the hotel was great with friendly staff. The Spa is a nice touch and the pool was great with plenty of sun loungers. The only downside was no wifi in room had to go to reception and of course the 99 steps. But all in all we had a fantastic time, will definitely be going back again.More
Even better second time!
Normal check in is 3 p.m. so we were delighted to have our apartment by 11:00 a.m. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful; especially Joao, Adriano and Adeline. We were fortunate to get an apartment with a beautiful view - #413. Clean, comfortable, ample hangers/drawers in the bedroom. Remembering how hard the bed was last trip, we took a foam mattress topper and a feather pillow this time and it made all the difference in the world to ensure a comfortable sleep. There is some fluctuation with the shower temperature so just be aware of it and there wonât be an issue. Lots of storage space in the bathroom. Our maid spoke no English but the apartment was well taken care of. Yes, the couch is definitely past itâs best, the lumpy pillows could do with being replaced, the lighting isnât ideal for reading at night and the TV is not formatted to enable you to view the full screen but none of these impacted our enjoyment. Dogs barking, seagulls cawing and church bells chiming are part of life in Albufeira. I would recommend you bring beach towels, facecloths, hand soap, dishwasher tabs, Tide PODS, J-Cloths and clothes pins. If you have room, a non-stick fry pan and a roll of Bounty would be very handy. Handy to Aldi and Lidl, a half hour walk to Continente which has the largest selection; very much like a Loblawâs Superstore. Lidl has delicious rolls and apple turnovers, still warm from the oven if you go early in the day. The âdreaded 97 stepsâ really arenât much of an issue and I have had two knee replacements. Not a breeze, but definitely manageable. A taxi from Old Town to Lidl or Cerro Mar Garden was E3,25 on a weekday, E3,90 on a weekend or late evening. A shuttle service with Chico is available. I recommend you take the shuttle down to Old Town so you can see where the pick-up location is. The one time we were going to use the shuttle to return to Cerro Mar there were so many people waiting we just grabbed a cab to Lidl (E3,25) picked up some groceries and walked back to the apartment. Yes, you need to pack your patience when using the complimentary wifi in the front lobby or check out options with your service provider at home. The onsite Monte Verde Restaurant is excellent! Gym is decent and the grounds are immaculate. The location of Cerro Mar Garden is perfect and, if you get an apartment with a great view, it canât be beat. We have already booked for 2018.More
Home with a View
Beautiful location overlooking the ocean within walking distance of beaches, historic areas and shopping. Ideal for families because the generous apartments offer full kitchens, dishwashers and laundry facilities. Albufeira is a charming walkable town and the Cerro Mar overlooks but iis close by. A large pool, in house restaurant and friendly helpful service add to the appeal of this hotel.More
