Upon arrival it was raining, the bus dropped us off at the end of the road with the driver pointing "over there" Two minute walk we find it all locked up. Not going to lie, I thought we were in the Bronx!!! . . . but.... it improved!!! The owner/receptionist were very very helpful. Rooms are basic but huge. Double... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Cantinho do Mar for a week at the beginning of September and in all honestly I would return. Bad points: Reception closes at 6pm so when we arrived at 10:30pm we were literally dropped outside of a locked door in the dark! There was an emergency number on the door which I phoned... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor which had balconies to the front (street view) & rear (pool and partial sea view). The apartment had a large lounge and separate kitchen with tiled flooring throughout. One bedroom had 2 single beds and entrance to the front balcony and the other had bunk beds with a pull... More

The staff were excellent. Location was perfect. Loads of space in the apartment, you could fit four people easily. The only complaints I have is the beds are a bit hard and the towels were only changed twice in one week. I would stay here again.

Me and my partner have just arrived back from cantinho do mar, having read the reviews we agree with what is said. You do think where have we come to and not the most welcoming of apartments on arrival. A down side for us was the young groups coming back at all hours and making lots and lots of noise.... More

Me and 2 friends stayed here on 2nd of June for a week, you can't fault this hotel!! Very quiet and peaceful. Beautiful swimming pool and the apartments are huge with everything you could possibly want to cook with. Victor on reception is lovely and extremely helpful. Yes the furniture was dated but who cares for the peaceful stay you... More

It was with some trepidation we arrived late-ish (9), at Cantiho do Mar. We knew reception would be closed and we were a bit nervous that we would get into our apartment. We rang the number provided and gained access, we were told to go downstairs. I was not impressed, thinking we were being sent to the basement. Entering ths... More

We were actually stayng in Praia De Rocha, but wanted somewhere to stay in Albufeira for one night to see some friends and celebrate a birthday. This was the ideal place to stay! We had a two bedroom apartment for 5 of us. It was comfortable, clean and so peaceful. It's only a 10 minute walk from there to get... More
