    Historical Traveler Reviews Cerro Mar Atlantico Touristic Apartments Albufeira

    Excellent

    from

    The appartments were a little difficult to find but on arrival the staff were very freindly and the appartments were well equipped and very clean. Althought there was a hill and steps,it was only 10 mins walk to the beach and the town,which provided plenty of places to eat,drink and entertain you.

    Will definatly go back.

    Albufeira non the dearer

    from

    First impressions of the complex were that the appartments were about twice as large as you would normally get in a popular resort in Portugal.

    We don't think we have been anywhere , where you can lay in bed and just tweek the curtains and look over the town and see the oceon ...quite stunning.

    The only drawback is that there are 104 steps down to the town square but great for keeping fit.

    Good bar ...nice pool area and a roof garden with a bbq

    Definetly recommend.

    Great accommodation - pity about the diggers

    from

    This was our first experience of the Algarve, and we had a really good time. The self-catering accommodation was easily the best we have stayed in - our previous experience of going s/c was to the Greek Islands. But the accommodation at Cerro Mar was in a different league - clean, extremely spacious and well equipped. Staff were also friendly and helpful.

    The trek up and down the hill was a bit of a pain at times, but having enjoyed many good meals at the wide variety of restaurants in Old Town we were grateful for the exercise! And if we didn't feel up to it there was a courtesy mini-bus available during the day and/or taxis readily available at all other times.

    Previous reviewer does have a point however about the building work - there is already work going on alongside the apartments, and another site being cleared in front of the block we stayed in. Could be a bit of a nuisance when it's all in full swing.

    Disappointing!

    from

    Considering the 5 star reviews this did not live up to expectations. We only went because our usual place was full and I can assure you there are far nicer places to stay. Granted the apartments are clean and a good size but the decor is tired and dated. Our apartment was cold when we arrived and took several hours to heat up. There is a steep hill down into town and even going at speed it was stretching it by saying it would only take 3 minutes and it was considerably longer coming back up. To make it worse the steps to the town had been dug up and were virtually impassable. The worst was the building close by and the constant hammering of the pile drivers which meant it was not really possible to stay in the apartment in the day. This building is in its early stages and more ground is being cleared for more construction work - It certainly wont be finished this summer and maybe not by next summer either. I would give this a miss for a couple of years.

    The Best Around 2

    from

    Since my last review I've stayed here twice more and once again cannot fault the facilities or staff, would give it easily 10 out of 10. One tip for people with younger children who may not like the outdoor pool ( maybe a little cold for younger children ) when booking go for block 3 entrance level if possible not as nice a view and not as much sun during the day but you do get free use of the heated indoor pool and sauna etc.

    Great holiday with spectacular views

    from

    just come back from a great holiday

    the apartments were excellent

    Fully fitted kitchen, air conditioning, high quality apartment

    Great facilities in the complex

    Ideal for lazing around sunbathing at one of their pools

    A lunchtime beer was pleasant as I reckon this was best beer in Albufeira

    Evening dip in indoor pool after a sauna and off down to fisherman's beach for a great meal from one of the excellent restaurants

    and the portugeuse people are much friendlier than the spanish

    Perfect situation for old town centre

    from

    We spent a very enjoyable easter week at the apartments after booking with an owner. which provided us with a cheap week

    ok there are steps up from the town but without them we would not have the panaramic views from the hotel terraces The complex itself is reasonably flat.

    Apartments are spacious, we had outdoor pools, indoor pool, sauna, gym

    It was a great expedition every night exploring the old town choosing from the many excellent restaurants

    We will definately go again, the best apartments we have stayed in.

    The Perfect Portugal Get-away Experience

    from

    My wife Maureen and I were attracted to the Cerro Mar in every travel book we opened. It just seemed to be the right place, not too close, not too far away from the beach and village. We awoke in our wonderful apartment overlooking the ocean to the sounds sof lambs in the field and a pan flute playing in the village, wafted up by the soft breezes from the sea. The apartment was fully equipped with all the amenities one would want, from double sink to full sized fridge. We ate oranges for breakfast picked the day before in Spain. The staff and service were great, the restaurants in town were many and varied and excellent.

    We would go back again and have recommeneded it to our friends over and over. If only we could have stayed longer than 2 weeks! It was so relaxing. Doug & Maureen Vincent

    Brilliant location

    from

    very comfortable apartments in an enviable position, staff all very friendly and apartments well furnished.

    A Really enjoyable holiday!!

    from

    We booked cerro mar apartments as a last minute deal at the travel agents, so were slightly concerned about what to expect when we got there!!

    We stayed in cerro mar 3 which is just across the road from the main block of apartments. However block 3 is very new and up to date. The apartment was spacious and very nicely furnished. It even even had remote controlled air conditioning!!

    Cerro mar 1 and 2 are not quite so modern but are still comfortable (no air conditioning though)

    There is not an outdoor swimming pool on block 3 so you have to walk the short distance to the main block of apartments. The sun beds around the swimming pool get taken very quickly in the morning so if you prefer the pool to the beach it could mean getting up early to get a space!

    The apartments have a small grocery store which provides a decent choice of food.

    It is a short walk (down the steep steps) to the square where all the restaurants and entertainment happens at night. But it easy enough to get a taxi if you dont fancy the walk up or down the hill.

    We were extremely pleased with the apartments and had a really enjoyable holiday!!

    Crazy 2 days

    ... in another beautiful country.

    To be honest about Lagos, there is not a huge amount to do apart from sit on a beach and enjoy the nightlife. But to be fair, both of those are very good. We just came a little unlucky having arrived in a couple of overcast days with the water being very cold.

    Once at the lighthouse at the end of the peninsula you could see the beach around the corner, Dina told me that that was the beach that Madeleine Mccann had gone ...

    ... seem to speak some English, but they are delighted when do don't have to - RESPECT! Yay Kate! Very warm welcomes and huge smiles seem to be the default attitude here. Although it's hot - about 30 degrees each day we were here - the city has thousands of trees and gorgeous shady squares where the temperature drops by 10 degrees and a refreshing breeze cools the happy flaneur at every turn ....oh joy and rapture ...

    ... the beach in the hope of finding something cheap to eat. We happened to however walk past a bar that was showing that All Blacks game, I convinced Dina to stay for one half at least while we ate the cheap breakfast. It was a really good time and well worth it as a few aussies and kiwis piled their way in.

    Following that we explored the winding confusing streets of Lagos, eventually managing to find ourselves in the old streets where Dina searched for ...

    ... sunny. Siesta today as was really hot!!! Went for swim in dumping waves... Brought back half the beach with me but felt lovely. Lovely dinner out... The lady was lovely and so surprised when we said we were from NZ. She went to tell her husband behind the bar and when she came back she said that he had said that NZ was by Sth America. She had thought it was by Australia..... So guess she got it right. Heading off back to Spain tomorrow .... Few hours in Faro then bus to ...
