    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!!

    After our 2 day sail we pull into Portamao and decide to drop anchor rather than go into the marina as it was a lovely big bay by the beach and a lovely afternoon. Just what we needed after 2 long days at sea. The sunset was beautiful and a cosy night in board before getting up at 3 to head onto Sines on the west coast of ...

    ... by cliffs. The cliffs are limestone and are constantly being battered by the sea and so their shape is constantly changing. A boat trip along the coast enabled us to see the interesting shapes and formations and explore some of the grottoes that have been formed. I had been warned that the sea was cold as it was the Atlantic but OMG it was cold! I decided to be brave and get in but it took some getting used to. Once ...

    A quiet day at our town today... Wandered to the town/village at the sea front and had a wander and coffee. Big purchase... A new pair of jandals. Havianas and cheaper than in NZ so grabbed a pair.... Don't suppose I will have much call for them for few months. Bill enjoyed a very extensive port shop ... Very big for size of town... Two floors. Beach not so calm today... Wind from Spain apparently.... Said with derision and blame !!!! Like it's their fault!!!! Still blue ...

    ... person with airbnb didn't show!!! Finally after a call to their help line managed to rally someone up to let us in. Phew!!! Not sure what plan B was. Beautiful spot .... Apartment ok very cosy but a lovely view, close to bay and everything close. The beach has escalators up and down to get from the look out to the beach. Beautiful sunset as we sit out and drink wine and eat cheese and olives. Went to beach for swim at about 7 and was perfect. Another Ocean we have swum ...

    ... harbour-side aire off the N550 with boost pipe clip and bikes all still intact.

    Monday is a chore day and we spend it in busy Vigo doing laundry. Afterwards we drive across the border to our next country, Portugal. To date, we have travelled 12 countries and 9 capital cities in just under half our travel time – almost three months.

    The beach at Esposende is windy, so after a quick nose around the area, we stay in for the evening.
