Historical Traveller Reviews of Cerro Mar Hotel

Great Value Appartments

from suewick
We have stayed at these appartments twice this year and had no complaints on either occasion. It had been about 10 years since we last visited the Algarve and were surprised at how built up it had become. However we still had a great time. We found the Cerro Mar to be excellent value for money. Very clean and well equipped and quite large. We found all members of staff to be helpful and friendly. Ok the steps down to the old town can be a bit exhausting but think of all that beautiful food you're burning off calorie wise. Would recommend these appartments to all except those with very young children and people with mobility problems.

Beautiful view of the town and sea.

We stayed at the Cerro Mar Hotel Mar. 2003 and Mar.2004. We had a lovely suite overlooking the town and the sea. The suite was lovely and impecibly clean. The cleaning staff and bar staff were very friendly. The front desk staff were unfriendly and not helpful.There was a steep trek down to the town square,but only a 7 minute trip.A little longer coming back up to the hotel.There was a lot of construction in the immediate area but it did not deter from 2 lovely stays there.We would highly recommend this hotel but can not figure out front desk staff attitude. Probably a cultural misunderstanding. The bar is nice and the outdoor swimming pool looked inviting.

We stayed in Cerro Mar at the begginning of September and this was my first holiday abroad as a couple, and ive got to say it is the best place we could of picked to stay in. The apartments are very spacious and very clean and hotel staff were all friendly. All theb locks were very nice has it has three blocks but the pool in the new block is extremely nice with the pool bar!!!!!!!!!! The beaches in albufeira beat most destinations by far and the nightlife was spot on for us with lively bars and pubs even a nightclub in at the strip which is 10 minute taxi ride away! We prefered the old town though because it was nearer to our apartments just down the 100 steps and your there!this really didnt put us off as the views are stunning. I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND THIS HOLIDAY TO ANY YOUNG COUPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

such a shame the step's are a nightmare , very steep and slippy when wet because the views are fantastic from the top.the weather was wet when we were there and it was cold at night 15th oct. we did't think the locals were very friendly,the pool is very cold but the indoor pool is warm apartments are loveyl clean and modern.

Be warned though there is some building work going on opposite but doesn't intrude on your holiday.

Excellent clean apartments with a fully kitted out kitchen

The 100 steps up from the square lost their novelty after a couple of drunken walks up.

Stay here as long as your athletic

some staff not very friendly

Excellent apartment complex away from the busy centre yet it only takes 10 mins to walk down to the old square (longer on the return due to the 102 steps!).

The apartments are very spacious and clean with regular maid service. There is a choice of 4 pools which are resident only with key entry for the whole complex which means it is really secure. The complex does not allow residents to reserve sunbeds with towels, which is great as it means that you can go to the pool at midday and still get a bed.

The old town gets very busy in August and is more commercialised than we expected, so we would not return again but if you like this type of resort then the apartments are excellent.

There are limited shopping facilities in the immediate area and the complex mini market has limited supplies which are priced at a premium. Supermarket is about 20 minutes walk away so it is useful to have a car for a couple of days.

Had an excellent time at the Cerromar apartments in Portugal. We were supposed to be going to Cancun for 2 weeks in July but the holiday was cancelled due to Hurricane Emily. This was a last minute booking but it was well worth it and I am extremely glad I went.

The apartments consisted of 4 blocks, 3 of which each had an outdoor swimming pool and the other had an indoor pool along with gym and turkish bath (where we stayed). It doesnt make any difference what block you stay in as they are all very near each other and you can use any of the pools/facilities.

The apartments were very clean and the maid came round every day to clean the apartment and done a very good job.

They are in a excellent location, however they are up a very steep hill so if you have walking difficulties maybe not the place for you, reception will call you a taxi with no problems and there are plenty available in the town so it isn't really a problem.

I have read some earlier revews and there was some complaints about the building work going on. We did notice some building work on one of the apartments near by but it was never noisy and did not bother us at all.

I would recommend these apartments. You get what you pay for, we did not spend a fortune on our holiday but got clean, spacious apartments with friendly staff. Well worth a go!!

Great Value

Just spent a week at the Cerro Mar and will definitely go back there again. The rooms were clean and spacious and the staff were helpful and friendly.

Spent time at all 3 of the hotel pools, all of which were very clean. Did not hardly notice the building work, the general views from the apartments made up for it. And the 102 stairs! nice walk down, under 4 euros in a cab up!!

Room with a View!!

We booked last minute but had checked out the reviews on this site first as it was our first holiday with our 9mnth old son and wanted to be sure we weren't going to end up in a dump. I'm pleased to say it wasn't!

By far the best apartments we've ever stayed in on a SC holiday. The apartments were very spacious, very clean, and well equiped though we'd have liked to have had a microwave. the airconditioning was fantastic and wasn't charged as an extra. What made it really special was the view. Our very large terrace overlooked the old town down to the sea which you definately wouldn't get in Cerro Mar 1 or 2 (both overlook building sites - we didn't hear a thing from the construction site). Staff were friendly and ever eager to help.

We were in Block 3, which although over the road, has it's own indoor pool and health club. The pool was great for jnr as the outdoor one was a bit on the chilly side!

The only downside if you have a pushchair or mobility problems would be the steps down to the town centre. Still kept me fit and Jnr quite enjoyed bumping down the steps.

Highly recommended!
