Cerro Mar Colina

The Cerro Mar Colina offers a choice of pools and a great line-up of activities, all topped off with sweeping views of Albufeira.

From its hillside position, this place comes with spectacular views over the Atlantic Ocean and Albufeira’s terracotta-topped old town. You can walk to the sandy shoreline in a 5 minutes.

Interiors are lovely and bright, with whitewashed walls and plenty of sunlight that streams in through floor-to-ceiling windows. Apartments carry the white motif, too, and they’re finished with simple furniture and sun-trap balconies.

Great Place To Stay

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment for 7 nights. The room itself was very large and a beautiful big balcony. The apartment was kept very clean, and staff very friendly. This apartment had everything you could possibly need. I would definitely stay there again. A very good location to the old town, as we walked there on a daily basis. There is so much to do there, 4 pools, gym, restaurant variety store close by.More

Lovely apartments

We booked these apartments through Thomsons as a late booking. We requested a high floor and were given a quiet one bedroomed apartment at the back of the building on the fourth floor. The apartment was very clean and had everything you could need, the kitchen had a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and washing machine. The maids visited daily to change the towels and sheets were changed midweek. The apartments are a walk away from aldi and Lidl should you wish to yes the self catering facilities. We had breakfast in the hotel. It was quite a climb down to the old town, not good for anyone with mobility issues. We had a very enjoyable break.More

Great hotel

Booked a week at this hotel in October. We booked a studio apartment but were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment which had a balcony and was sea facing with a pleasant view. The facilities were good with a full size cooker, a fridge freezer. A microwave would have been good but not a real problem. There are 2 large supermarkets approx 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Good facilities including a gym with a rowing machine, 2 cross trainers, a running machine and an assortment of small to medium dumbells up to 25kgs and a couple of weight machines. There is a sauna and you also have the choice of 5 pools to use. The staff were very helpful and on our departure day we were able to leave our bags in the luggage room for the day and go into the town for lunch. We would definitely book this hotel again.More

Very Nice Apartments, BUT Very Poor Internet

3 Guys away for a weekend. We booked 3 night stay here the last weekend October 2014. We had a one bedroom apartment with a sleeper sofa, I took the sofa. The apartment was very nice with some beautiful views of the city and overlooking the ocean. 2 Outdoor pools and 1 indoor pool, Gym, Sauna, Steam Room and Bowling alley. Breakfast was included and there was a plentiful supply of good food. The apartments are on a steep hill, and to go to the tourist area you have to walk down about 100 steep steps. (You can always get a taxi though). If you have a few beers and a very strong heart you might want to try too walk back up the stepsMy advice is get a taxi back. There is a safe in the room but it's extra payment to use it. The internet service is also extra. We paid €16 for 72 hours continuous internet, which only started working after about 20 hours and then quit altogether. When it did work it was like those dial-up days all over again. Otherwise its a beautiful place.More
