“Family holiday”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

The apartments were a good size.We had a 2nd floor overlooking the pool.It was very noisy when the karaoke was on until 2am so not recommended if you have small children.The town was about a 20minute walk .The area around the hotel was not very nice and rather run down with lots of dog poo on the pavements.The beach was a really long walk about 35minutes.The hotel has a shuttle bus to the old town and beach only problem it has only 8 seats so has to make a few trips.The old town was really nice with good restaurants and a lovely beach.A good hotel if you dont mind walking or paying for taxis

Staff all very friendly and made us very welcome. People seem to come on and complain and I can honestly say I can't see a reason. Apartments were clean and facilities were all in working order. Ok a bit loud at night but people were on holiday and it stopped at about 2

I agree with all the positive comments posted. The hotel is always cleaned - the apartments are cleaned every other day, but they just empty the bins.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
The only thing that I would say negative is that these apartments welcome stag and hen parties, so if you have young children you may consider staying else where.
When I stayed in July a group of 40 stags turned up and literally took over. Families with young children had to go elsewhere - I thought this was unfair as everyone pays the same money, but I suppose they would not turn 40 men away while they were putting money behind the bar

Just checked out of Choromar hotel yesterday with my partner, brother and his girlfriend . We paid exact same price for holiday yet I got studio room facing onto main pool area whereas my brother and girlfriend were placed in a tiny 1 room apartment which appeared to be in a residential area. However each room had it's advantages over the other , eg in our studio room the shower sprayed everywhere which lead to myself taping a plastic bag around it! Whenever I showered I had max 5 mins before the hot water ran out ! Yet my brothers shower worked great and was very quiet at night .

Room 003 was were we stayed and the noise from bar was unbelievable especially as PAblo is on every single night with all his fans.

Drink and food prices very cheap and lovely . I don't know how other people have said it was expensive clearly tight lol.

Towels were changed 3 times during week, should been twice but we asked for extra. Room floor was never cleaned I didn't understand this.

Pool area keep very clean and tidy definitely a credit to the cleaners here!

Receptionist very friendly especially the younger lady with glasses she was more than happy to help us with anything.

10 minute walk to the new town/strip

30 minute walk to old town however taxis are cheap we just took turns each day and the hotel will ring one for you soon as you ask.

Supermarket about 5 - 10 minutes walk away depending how fast you walk it has plenty of groceries for you to select and good prices .

Supermarket in hotel is ok for basic needs and the lady is very friendly .
Tip: taxi rank very busy in old town during evening don't que up! Walk up escalators and walk to nearest hotel and ask them to ring you taxi (they think your guest) and you'll have one in seconds ;-)

Overall had good stay at choromar friendly staff and we felt safe. Few things need be brought up to scratch but I suppose everywhere is the same.

Stayed here with a stag group of 14. Rooms are big clean and spacious, pool is nice food was ok, staff nice and friendly. Only down fall about this place is it's location it's too far out of the way. Not a place you would bring the family but for a group of stag/hen party it's fine because it's cheap!

Flow out with BA (British Airways) on the 19th May 2014 from Edinburgh to London Gatwick then Gatwick to Portugal, to stay at the Choro Mar, Albufeira, my second visit to this nice and warm friendly place. The receptionist was very kind.

My first time I have a few minor problems with the place, but this time it was perfect, not one problem, I even got the same room as I had the year before.
The dogs that barked all night up in a field (Guard Dogs) over from the place had gone, it had a new up-to-date TV, new Boiler, and toaster, and when I was staying in the room they were putting in new Chairs and table on the balcony, and in all the other rooms as well.

The Breakfast once again were outstanding, you have a choice of Scottish, English or Irish breakfast. And have great meals at night if you’re staying in.

And the Free shuttle bus down to Oura beach is very handy. For shopping eating out, and going out for the day and making your own way back at night if you miss it gooing back, or if stay out that longer.
I’ll be back again next year.

Room Tip: You are not far away from the strip as they call it, plenty bars and places to eat.

Bad Points

1. The place is a haven for noisy drunken louts on Stags and Hens - they take over the pool and
bar areas, kids cant swim in the pool because of the broken glass, louts playing ball and jumping in, swearing and intimidating athmosphere.
2. Too far to the "New Strip and the old town - need a taxi which takes ages to arrive (if they do)
3. Shuttle bus service is "random" as when we asked the guy driving the shuttle bus was this
the shuttle bus to town he said "No" and drove off !

Good Points
1. Accomodation is spacious
2. Staff are friendly and helpful - especially Fatima.
3. Cheap

Place would be not so bad but get rid of the stags and hens ! - Not for families
