Cerro Mar Colina

The Cerro Mar Colina provides guests with a choice of pools and a great line-up of entertainment options.

From almost everywhere in the hotel, you’ll have sweeping views of Albufeira and the Atlantic Ocean. The interiors here are lovely. They’re also bright because sunlight streams in through floor-to-ceiling windows. All the apartments are white and are finished with simple furniture and sun-trap balconies.

Outside, you’ll find three pools. One’s shaped like a puddle and is sunk into a tree-lined terrace that comes with plenty of loungers. The second one’s smaller and quieter. It also comes with a child-only section attached. There’s a third, heated pool indoors.

Meals here are taken in the neighbouring hotel. It serves up big buffets with international favourites.

Overview of Albufeira

Albufeira is the heart and soul of the Algarve region. Whether you’re looking for culture, partying, golden beaches or sublime restaurants on your holiday to the Algarve, Albufeira ticks every box.

Home to tightly wound streets that snake up the hill and provide plenty of chance to explore, there’s plenty of history, mystery and more when you step outside the Cerro Mar Colina.

Albufeira is loved by beach bunnies. Two of the finest beaches in the Algarve can be found here and along the coast, there are golden sands, shimmering seas and spots where you can party or play.

Things to do in Albufeira

The Cerro Mar Colina is only a few minutes’ walk away from Albufeira’s centre. Here you can divide your time between the two distinct parts. During the day, the old town is awash with culture and tales of old. It’s a place that offers live music, chilled lifestyles and good conversations. In the evening, downtown is the place to be. It’s packed with all-night bars and slick nightclubs.

The sea and the sand are also only five minutes away from the hotel. You’re away from the action down here, so you can rest and relax in peace.

Albufeira is a unique resort that strikes a balance between old and new. There are beautiful contrasts here you’ll want to experience again and again.

Resort Summary

Albufeira is a classic Mediterranean town, with tightly wound streets that snake up the hill in rustic trails of adventure. Take the time to explore, and you’re going to find history, mystery and more waiting for you in those enticing streets. It might sound like a paradox, but package holidays to Albufeira make this an affordable destination that doesn’t skimp on the finer things in life. That means there’s low-cost luxury and down-to-earth venues around every corner.

Of course, it’s just as likely you’ll be too busy enjoying the beach to even make it that far. Albufeira is right by the shore of two of the finest beaches in the Algarve, namely Praia dos Pescadores and Praia do Tunel. Each of those sandy stretches offers golden coast and shimmering sea, where families, couples and groups of friends flock every day to sunbathe, party and play.
