We visited the Cerro Mar Garden Hotel in July and stayed on a self-catering basis, in 2 bedroom apartment. The rooms are excellent very well equipped, with washing machine, dish-washer, full size hob and oven, fridge-freezer, 2 bathrooms and a TV in lounge picked up BBC and ITV which was handy for keeping up to date with the Olympics. Apartment had a balcony with sea views, note some on higher floors have larger balconies!
There is a large LIDL supermarket 5-10 walk away for all the basics, but many small supermarkets in old town and another just across the road which is more expensive than most. Old town 5mins walk away but down approx. 100 steps, steps not a problem at night but when hot in middle of day can be a bit of a challenge. They do run a bus from hotel, but only every two hours with 7 seats. There are many reasonably priced restaurants, our favourites being the beach basket for excellent seafood and there is a very good value tourist menu at Adega Dom Pipas (just of main street to tunnel). The beach is very nice with a breeze every day and very reasonably priced water sports are available.
Only negative points, is there were some noisy guests who came back between 2-5am who made a lot of noise in corridors, often banging on doors and one night someone rang our door bell at 5am. Also there are not enough sunbeds, so if you want a bed get down to the pool by 9am. The reception staff will remove towels of you ask them, as many guests tend to reserve a beds then go for breakfast.
Overall do not let negative points put you off, as we would not hesitate in recommending this accommodation or resort, it was a truly relaxing excellent holiday.
