We stayed at the Cerro Mar Gardens for a weekend break at the beginning of March and we were most pleasantly surprised. We arrived really late at night after a long drive from Spain and the check-in was very welcoming and the receptionist was very efficient.
The apartments were modern and chic and had a full sized fridge and freezer, dishwasher and a washing machine. The apartments were very well equipped. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and we requested a room on a higher floor with a sea view, which we got. The view was superb. Getting up in the morning to take a look out at the view is pretty special.
The apartment was spotless and the cleaner gave us extra towels - very helpful. The beds were comfy and the TV had English channels, including BBC etc.
The hotel offers a spa area with a jacuzzi / hot tub and sauna, which you do not have to pay extra for (a feature not many hotels offer), excellent value and we thoroughly enjoyed using the facilities. We also used the gym, which has a good range of machines and is also free of charge.
The location of the hotel is excellent, being a stone throw away from the old town. Walking up the steps on the way back from the old town was tiring but very manageable. Taxi's are also incredibly cheap and are worth using if you don't fancy the walk. There is a Lidl supermarket not far from the hotel, very convenient.
We used the garage to park our car at a cost of 7 euros, which was reasonable. We ended having issues starting our car up after checking out due to the battery going flat and the staff at the hotel were superb and assisted us in getting the car moving. Excellent customer service.
We had previously stayed at the Cerro Mar Atlantico (the other side of the hotel) over a year back and the Cerro Mar Garden was of a higher standard in terms of the rooms more recently refurbished and modern, there is a big difference between the Atlantico and Garden apartments. We are planning to book Cerro Mar Garden again on our next trip to Albufeira. The hotel wins hands down for the facilities it offers and the location, cannot fault it.
