Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this apartment for four days in September. The apartment is very nice, quiet and well equipped with everything you need. It is spotlessly clean and Kevin, who met us at the apartment, was wonderful to deal with. It has a large balcony with a table and chairs for four people. The location is quite central, just a few minutes walk down the hill to the old, central part of town where there are lots of bars and restaurants. For anyone who doesn't want to walk back up the hill there is a very convenient taxi stand in the old town where taxis run almost continuously all evening and charge just under four euros to go to the apartment. There is a small convenience/grocery store just outside the apartment gate where we were able to get everything we needed for our stay. There is a large supermarket not far away as well. We arrived by car and had no trouble finding parking on the street near the building. I highly recommend this place.

Good location

  • 5 of 5

Nice apartment everything you need, very clean and close to everything. Sun loungers next to pool which belong to the apartment so no worries about finding a lounger when it's busy, we like the beach so went there everyday which is only 10min walk. Apartment had air conditioning which was great as it was very hot in the evening. Dish washer and washing machine available to use great for freshening up our beach towels. lovely restaurants had some fab meals and the old town side streets all nearby to enjoy drinks. Overall a pleasant relaxing and quiet stay, would def return.

Lovely location near a quaint old town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cerro Mar in February 2016 for one week.

We were met at the airport by Billy (organised by Kath) who was very friendly, informative and organised. He explained where everything was and gave detailed information about the local area and apartment. We ordered the welcome pack which was a blessing as we arrived late in the evening so were able to have some food and a drink without venturing out.

The apartment was immaculate with everything you could possibly need including dishwasher, washing machine, hairdryer, European plug adaptor, books, DVD’s and a detailed list of places to visit and things to do.

The old town is just a short walk away and is very quaint with lots of shops, bars and restaurants. I think we pretty much tried every café and restaurant open for the season as the food and drinks were so inexpensive it wasn’t worth cooking yourself and we never once had a bad meal. The Portuguese couldn’t do enough for you and the service was excellent.

This really is a holiday with everything on your doorstep where you can fully relax and unwind. We would definitely return again and highly recommend to others.

Fully Equipped, Modern and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my partner for 9 nights in October 2015. It is in an Excellent location, just 4 mins walk from Old town square. A super safe apartment and very quiet on the night. The apartment was possibly the best equipped I've ever stayed in. Very clean and modern. It has the sun on the balcony on a morning (307). Dishwasher and washing machine are welcome facilities. Also had Wifi (at additional cost) which is a blessing.

All communication with Kath was straight-forward from the beginning to end. Kevin was there to greet us and show us round the apartments. Had no problems at all during our whole visit.

Ideal for couples holiday.

Would stay here again definitely and would highly recommend.

High quality accommodation good location

  • 5 of 5

This was my 2nd visit to Cerro Mar and I was very happy to return. The complex is extremely secure with lovely well maintained grounds and swimming pool. The apartment is maintained to a high standard, very clean and pleasantly decorated, with air con in bedroom & living area. Spacious with good size balcony to seat 4 comfortably. Location is a 5-10min walk down steps to main square of Albufeira where all bars and restaurants are. It's uphill back so wear suitable shoes but worth it to see the view over the beach and return to such comfort. Well impressed and I will return again.
