“Lovely place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

Driving from the airport, we were delighted to find the hotel clearly signposted, which was a relief as it was quite a struggle driving on the "wrong side" of the road & we had no good maps in the rental car. Room was big, clean and fairly well equipped. However, the beds were narrow & rather hard & the only english channel on the tv had very poor reception.
However, staff were great - helpful and friendly and we enjoyed the atmosphere & food in the bar/restaurant. The hotel was quite a distance from the beach but there were heaps of restaurants within walking distance. The apartments had a mini market & prices were not too bad. Could be quite noisy at times as sound echoed up the stairwells & people were not always considerate of their neighbours - I am glad we went in the shoulder season. Would love to go back.

Room Tip: Older couples should request the apartments on either side of the main block, while families would b...

Just had an amazing long weekend here and we were also lucky enough to have gorgeous weather.
From the minute you check in you are made to feel welcome at the Choromar. Every member of staff is lovely and very helpful.
The apartment was more than big enough for the 2 of us, we were only there for 3 nights so we ate out all the time, but all the facilities were provided if you wanted to cook...fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave, hob.
The hotel is about 15 minutes away from the Strip where there are restaurants from all over the globe, but the hotel food is also delicious if you don't want to wander too far.
The hotel has a mini bus that goes to the beach or the Old Town at 11am and 3pm but if you want to go earlier or later then a tax is about 5 euros.
I wouldn't recommend with the little toy train that runs round the town - unless you have children.
A lot of guests at the hotel seemed to have been several times before and were greeted like old friends; and there was always a lovely friendly atmosphere in the bar.
I'd never been to Portugal before but now I can't wait to go back - lovely beaches - friendly people - and the small part of the Algarve we visited was totally unspoilt.

Room Tip: I'd go for an apartment rather than a studio, a lot more room for not a lot more money.

Fantastic holiday at Choromar, everything perfect.. Made exceptional by the staff who are always so friendly & helpful. Would thoroughly recommend to other families with small children :) They really do go the extra mile to make your stay a pleasant one! I have been to many resorts but would opt for Choromar over & over again! Location ideal for us only a short walk to the strip & Choromar courtesy bus provided regular trips to the old town! Thoroughly recommend.

1st time at the choromar apts and i must say it was one of the nicest places i have ever stayed. the staff were wonderful. fatima, manuel, carlos,pedro and all the staff make everyone feel so welcome and relaxed. you could not ask for nicer people. the apartments are maintained to a really high standard. very clean and spacious. great value for money. its a nice walk to the strip to get a bite to eat otherwise they do food in the complex bar which is lovely and reasonable. breakfasts were lovely. pool area is fantastic. great atmosphere in the place both day and night. entertainment every night when i was there and everyone got involved. pedro just made it fun and got people up singing and dancing. really enjoyed the holiday and will definitely be back again. thanks for a great holiday.

The staff at these apartments were very helpful,informed us about everything as soon as we arrived.The apartment was enormous, plenty of room and cupboard space.Great balcony overlooking the pool;although we did'nt use it we were at one of the beaches every day,a short bus ride away;great place for families with kids,with three pools available. Great hotel,great holiday.

Room Tip: would'nt have liked the main block it could get a little noisy on certain nights

when we arrived at the hotel the staff were helpful, had the keys ready and pointed us in the right direction but offered no help, only 1 set of keys per apartment.the apartment was much larger than expected, two large bedrooms, sitting room/dining room, good size kitchen with fridge freezer, full cooker and all equipment needed (could have done with a bit washing up liquid) and bathroom with bath with shower over. the balcony was large with patio table and 4 chairs and very safe brick wall half way up then wrought iron to roof preventing any accidents but allowing the sun through. the cover on my bed was stained but when i complained it was changed straight away and 3 extra covers were left for the other beds. the cleaners came 3 times during the week but i never saw any water in the bucket!! my grandsons babygro was so dirty the first night from the floor they all needed washing each day. the towles were only changed on day 4 and were absolutely filthy as was the bath floor towel but there is drying on the balcony so we managed.
the bar served decent food, drinks and was next to the heated pool (wouldn't like to be there in the height of the season as it was a little cramped at times). there was also a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and games room for a small fee. there is a small supermarket on site open morning and evening but when you arrive late you can purchase milk and water from the bar. there is a courtesy bus twice a day going to the old town or oura beachwhich saves your legs and taxi fares. there was entertainment every night singer or karaoke only problem was the noisy brits sitting outside the bar singing but shutting the widows and shutters helped.the area around the pool looked newly painted with roman sort of theme and it was a pleasure to sit there.
the area is very quiet but only a 15-20 minute walk to the main strip, there are smaller bars and restaurants on the way which serve good food and are suitable for families and are quieter than the strip.
i would recommend these apartments to everyone as i was impressed with the value for money £175 for the apartment for a week. would definitely return in the future

Room Tip: our room was 111 and on the second floor, the apartments are in blocks of 4, 2 up 2 down
