“Fabulous friendly complex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2011

Stayed here with my family for several years now and going back again in September! Truly friendly complex from Saija, Jesus or Graca on reception to fransisqo or Manel on the bar not forgetting Pedro on the karaoke they all feel like my extended family.

The rooms are huge with all the facilities needed and a 10/15 walk from the centre of things.

would go back again tomorrow . rooms spacious and very clean. staff polite and very helpful all rooms are very well equipped (cooker microwave fridgefreezeer toaster) entertainment in the bar in the evening is very good with pedro who works very hard and tries to involve everyone in the fun. also good for the kids with a heated pool and arcade.bar prices for food and drinks also very reasonable.they also lay on a minibus to take you to the beach and pick you up again.all in all for the price this is one of the best complexes ive stayed at (and ive stayed in some dumps believe me")i would certainly recommend the choromar apartments to anyone (exept the professional moaners

Stayed here last summer with my boyfriend. Wasnt sure what to expect as had read mixed reviews, but i was very impressed! Apartment was much bigger than i though it would be and was cleaned regularly throughout the week!
This is a great place to stay as long as you dont mind a 15min walk to the strip for places to eat and bars. Overall we had a great time in Albuferia and would recommend this hotel.

Travelling with my husband and almost teenage son, we chose the Choromar as we were visiting family and wanted somewhere self catering not too far away from them. The apartment was large and very clean and the cleaners are always to be seen and very thorough. Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. Yes, the pool area is small and a bit crammed in but it's clean and the bar leading out to the pool serves excellent good value food and drinks. The lift has a mind of it's own and we enjoyed several "mystery trips" to every floor but the one we were staying on so only take it if you have plenty of time! The only downside for us was the bar, being open with karaoke almost every night, was noisy. As there were quite a few young people there, they would head off to the Strip, coming back in the even earlier hours so we did not get much sleep! But that was understandable as people were there to have a good time and we just weren't right for the hotel not the other way round!
Would recommend if you are more of a night person but not for those who like their sleep! We did try the karaoke one evening and it was great fun with Pedro being a real character and making everyone feel welcome. All in all would recommend to friends who like that kind of holiday.

Room Tip: Mind the lift!

This was a great place to stay, rooms were large and clean. We had room 303 in the main block. which was very comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful , food was reasonably priced in the bar and was tasty. A 15 minute walk to the main strip, and 20 minutes walk to the beach, but didn't bother us as we like a bit of exercise :). There was a complimetary bus from hotel to beach at 11 and 3.

Me and my wife spent a week at the Choromar hotel from the 11th of April - 18th of April. Overall we had a brilliant time whilst on holiday. Location was ideal as it was a short walk or cab from the main strip and old town which hosted many good bars, clubs and restaurants. The hotel it self was very clean and tidy, food was reasonbly priced and tasty, staff provided an excellent service and the entertainment from Pedro the Kareoke King was Fantastic.

Obrigado from Granville and Leonie

We visited these apartments last year, and I forgot to post a review. We are going to Albufeira again this year as we loved the place so much, but to a different hotel in the Old Town this time. The only prob with this place is it is a bit far out and you need a taxi to get to places, especially coming back at night.

On the other hand, we still absolutely loved our stay. The bar and restaurant was lovely, as were all the staff. The apartments were so clean and big, which was really nice not having to be cramped up. They had a separate kitchen space, dining table, big balcony, living area, and bedroom with loads of storage space.
We went out of season, but they still had entertainment in the hotel and many of the bars were quite busy.

We rented a car for 3 days while we were there, and there was plenty of parking space for us. We visited Portimao (Sardines on the port yum yum), Silves, Vilamoura and Loule - fantastic places to explore.

The apartments are closer to "the Strip" than the Old Town, however if you are after a more relaxed pace and more authentic feel, then the Old town is a must.

We were very close to booking this place again as it is such great value for money, but we found a place for a good price in the Old Town, which is where we will spend most of our time as it is what we prefer.
