Really nice appartment with great facilities

  • 4 of 5

We are a family at four who spent a week in the Cerro Mar appartment and we had a great holiday.

The appartment was nice and clean and worked well for four people.

The balcony was great with pool-view and the garden was nice and quiet.

The appartment has a good location close to super market, beach and restaurants.

The service was also really good with a fine welcome and a number to call in case of questions and we would indeed recommend the place to families.

Perfectly situated and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

The complex, with its own swimming pool, is situated on top of a hill, just a few minutes' walking distance from the city center but well away from the noise. The apartment is tastefully decorated and well maintained, outfitted with all that we needed for our stay.

Superb, cannot fault Algarve Getaways or apartment

  • 5 of 5

Excellent company to deal with - far better than tour operators. The apartment was fantastic, everything you need for a self-catering holiday, dishwasher, washing machine, full fridge and freezer, air conditioning in main room and bedroom (included), safe (included). 5-star standard for self-catering.

The private sun loungers that belong to the apartment are a brilliant plus and there was never an issue with space around the pool. Pool is lovely, the only downside was it seemed to smell a bit of chlorine but was salty - our son got quite a bad ear infection which we were advised would have been the pool - that said, the pool in the second week the pool was more chlorinated and seemed cleaner. We never saw staff take samples of the pool like at other hotels, but they could do this in the plant room so cannot comment on that.

Pool area was very clean. Very nice that you get to use the hotel opposite and at the top of the road. A little snack bar in the apartment block would be handy but that is just a suggestion and the fact you can use the hotels around the apartments it isn't an issue.

We would also recommend using the taxi that Algarve Getaways (who manage the apartment), driver was very pleasant and punctual. Prices also very reasonable.

Overall, fantastic holiday and wouldn't hesitate to use Algarve Getaways again, we have already recommended the apartment and company to family and friends. Will book again here for sure.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the most wonderful feedback and generous comments about the Algarve Getaways Team. We are delighted that you had such an enjoyable holiday and appreciated the apartment and swimming pool so much and made good use of the hotel facilities close by. We do try to provide our guests with a home-from-home environment and make their stay as comfortable as possible, including items like personal sun loungers, so that they don't have the stress of getting up early in the mornings to grab some, or 'fighting' over communal loungers with other guests. I am sorry that you son got an ear infection. This is a very common complaint and holidaymakers inundate doctors' surgeries in summer. There are 2 main reasons for this: 1. ‘Swimmers ear’ is a very common condition caused by water remaining in the ear after swimming. The best advice is to try and shake all the water out, or hop, to get as much water out as possible. 2. There are showers and signs at all the pools asking guests to shower before swimming but many people do not use them and all the suntan lotion and related products, alter the chemical balance of the pool. The second point could be why you smelled more chlorine at one point in the first week. Water samples are taken regularly. I hope that this will be helpful for next time, as it can be very difficult to get kids out of the water, when they are having so much fun. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Best wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways

Excellent service from Algarve getaways ! From first contact to drop off at the airport we could not fault the service.

The apartment was clean and fully fitted with a short walk to the old town down some steps.
