“Excellent Hotel and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

We stayed 27th January till 3rd February and didn't want to leave!! Everything was perfect including the weather. The apartments are large and modern, cleaned everyday and well equipped. We had dinner twice from the varied menu in the lovely restaurant as well as eating out in the old town - all at reasonable prices. The views over the whole of Albufeira and the sea from our sunny balcony on the 5th floor were superb. Reception staff are friendly and helpful and the cleaning ladies do a great job. The indoor pool was lovely and warm. There is a very well equipped gym, 2 jacuzzis, a steam room and sauna all for guests free use. I wouldn't let the stairs put anyone off going to this super hotel as there is an alternative route, the hotel have a courtesy bus and taxis are cheap. Loved the hotel and will return.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have the best views. 501 has a huge balcony and was sunny all day.

My husband & I have returned from staying here for 1 week, with our 16 month old baby. We cannot fault the service, cleanliness or the friendliness of all the staff.

The facilities are second to none, gym area clean, and has a sauna, steam room & jacuzzi all of which are including in the price when booking

We stayed in the apartments on the 5th floor, best views over the sea, a very central location. being close to the shops (Lidl supermarket less than a 10 minute walk). The beach is accessable either by the 99 steps which are not steep, we had no problems with carrying our baby in his pushchair up and down them. Or a ten minute walk. (Although there is a shuttle bus available several during the day to and from the beach if you prefer).

Perfect time to visit with a small child as the temprature being between 16 & 20 degrees. Airport transfer for us cost 22.50euro. Although some shops were not yet open as it was still low season.

Lovely, good quality, clean, well maintained Apartments.
Good location, only a few minutes walk (down a fair few steps) to the old town central square.
Lovely Spa area (once we found it behind the closed door), just a shame you have to pay £4 for a swimming cap to use the Pool. We didn't bother, and just used the Jacuzzi, Sauna etc.
Would recommend to anyone I know.

Just come back from 3 nights in Cerro Mar Garden. Hotel/Apartments were super. We went b&b and worth every penny hotel was spotless and staff friendly. Indoor pool was great and room was super. Wi-fi wasn't brill but we coped. Set. In old town for the elderly and families with young ones be careful of the 98 steps from hell not bad going down to the old town square but a killer coming back up after a drink. Can walk around missing steps but long way round. Overall a fantastic hotel and highly recommended.

I stayed in this apart hotel in May 2012 with 2 friends. We had a lovely apartment with fantastic views over the old town. Spotlessly clean with a large wrap round balcony I would definitely stay here again and have in fact recommended the apartment complex to a friend who has booked for this summer. The only downside is that they are on a steep hill with approx 100 steps down to the center of the old town. This did not bother me as the view was worth it. The hotel does have a courtesy mini bus and we did get taxis back up in the evening.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view and possibly a corner apartment as these have the big balconies

The place is lovely, we had a nice sunny apartment. There was only one serieus problem: the hot water supply. We could not fill the bath with hot water, it was just enought to fill half a bath. I heated four big pans of water on the stove to fill it up. Mayby other appartments don't have the same problem. We were in nr 204. We also had no dishwater and no washingmachine, but that doesn't bother me.

Still: we will come again.

Arriving at the apartments the reception staff are friendly, helpful and talk you through all the facilities. the rooms are scacious, clean and well equipped with washing machine, plates and cutlery as well as a fully working cooker. The only negative is having to pay for the safe 10 Euros and its a bit fiddely to work. The old fashioned key for the room rather than a card only helps as you don't need to carry it around but hans it in at the 24 hour reception.
We had a great double balcony (room 415) with breath-taking views of the old town and panaramic scene of the Atlantic.
The use of the spa and indoor pools require some costs such as caps and flip-flops but overall it was very useful to have a Turkish bath and stream room as well as the Jacuzzi. We went when the rooms were only 20% full so had good use of all facilites. The best thing about the apartments was the easy access to the old town, just 7 minutes walk down the 83 steps, not 100 as mentioned. They are not steep but older people may find the trip back up a little tricky. A taxi would cost only 4 Euros and there is a hotel shuttle bus every 2 hours.
Lots of local bars and restaurants especially O'Valero, a great place run by a local family with great food and prices.
The reception staff even phoned the airport transfer bus for us and overall the paprtments are the best plce to stay if staying in the old town.

Room Tip: room 415 or any on this floor for the best views.
