Choromar

We are a family of five & stayed in the choromar for 10 days in August. The 2 bed apartment we had was really spacious with our own back garden & sun loungers & bbq,we ate in the restaurant a couple of times & it was not bad & reasonably priced. My only gripe with hotel it was too far out & the wait for taxis was ridiculous,most of the time we had to get 2 taxis as no 7 seaters available. The walk to "The Strip" was a good 20 mins & if you want to go to Oura beach add another 15. We really enjoyed our holiday in Portugal & will be going back but I would probably get something nearer old town,it was beautiful there.

The best thing about my stay was...

The beautiful weather & beach in old town.

Choromar

Stayed in choromar apartments for a week we were a group of 17 all family. Wasn't happy we were all separated into different blocks one being a good enough distance from reception and bar but problem was every block has there own pool which could only be used by people staying in that block which made it harder for us all to get together. Rooms are big spacious and clean but I didn't feel like I was part of d choromar apartments because I felt so far away from d reception and bar and restaurant. If you don't like cats or ate allergic stay away because there everywhere roaming threw the apartments . It is at least 15-20 mins walk to the new town and ten mins in taxi to old town. Long time waiting on taxis especially if your looking for seven seater. Not an ideal location if you like going into the town as it is taxis. Bar and bar food was lovely breakfast lunch and dinner was great and reasonably priced. Staff were nice too. I personally wouldn't be booking here again as I've stayed in nicer apartments with better facilities. And there's NO AIR CON. U can rent a fan €1 a day.

The best thing about my stay was...

The weather

Worst Stay in Albuferia in 9 years

I Traveled to the Choromar for two weeks with a group of 12 (couples). We stayed in Lote 3 in apartment 102 which is the white apartment block right next to reception. Apartments were lovely and spacious with our own pool most of the time as this block of apartments consisted of about 4 local families who live here all year long. The locals complained every day about any noise we made in the pool, about having alcohol from reception (which is permitted once in plastic cup) One local got very aggressive towards the women that we had to make a formal complaint against him, locals would hang out of their windows shouting down at us for almost talking and said we were too loud when jumping into the pool. I found this extremely annoying as locals began to pick on everyone in this area. Families and other groups made numerous complaint about these locals as they were ruining peoples holidays so much that one family moved to the Corvada Hotel down the road. It showed that the hotel did not care for the clients who were paying a lot of money for their holiday. When I ensured that I would be writing this review after my stay they did not seem to mind. We were not the only ones that were spoken to everyday. If you have any pet allergies stay away from these apartments as all locals have pets (Cats) and they walk freely thought the apartments & pool are which was extremely unhygienic as one of my friends was allergic to cats and we were told there was nothing that could be done. Walk to the New Town Strip was 10 minutes which we had to walk every day due to the lack of taxies, As this hotel is out of the Taxi Zone they only pick up here if they are within the area. As we were with a large group we were left waiting for almost 1 hour for taxis. Although taxis were cheap they were not worth the wait. We were told that there would be free transfers to the beach in the old town but they left at 9am, 3pm & 5pm but only had 7 seats and did not do two runs. Only at the end of the holiday we made contact with a mini bus company that do transfers until 12pm to the old town for 2Euro per person and also did return trips (RUI TRANSFERS 00351962342104) Food in the bar was nice with good prices 3Euro for a toastie and 2Euro Pints. Food came out very quickly from the kitchen. My partner loves to work out so when we read reviews that there was an onsite gym he was delighted, only to later find out that there were hidden charges 3 Euro an hour for the Gym, charges also applied to Sauna, Turkish Bath and Pool Tables. Fans were also available to rent for apartments for 1 Euro a day, and late check out available until 3pm for 30 Euro. As someone who has stayed in Albuferia for the last 9 years I would not recommend this apartment to anyone as our stay was so unpleasant. For the money we saved on staying in this apartment we spent it on taxis. This has been the first trip to Albuferia I have had that I was disappointed with.

The best thing about my stay was...

Apartments were so spacious & sheets changed every 2 days.

Brilliant

I would def recommend these appartments i came back from there yesterday and to say we had a ball the 10 days we were there is even an understatement. Staff cannot do enough for you. Entertainment every evening. Very helpful for anything you need. The only downside was i would have liked to have a washing machine but i dont think anywhere would have a washing machine nowadays on hols. I will def be coming back. I will be recommending them to all my friends. These appartments were recommended to me by a frequent visitor. Great Hol. :-)

The best thing about my stay was...

No Cooking for me. Great Activities for Teens.

Not great

Apartments are quite a bit away from strip and don't have any bars or shops locally either! It's a bit of a nightmare to get taxis to! Especially if you need more than one! Food looked good but wasn't great and half my party ended up quite sick with one needing a trip to the hospital! I'm unsure if the food had anything to do with it! Also a small thing but was very annoying none of the drinks seemed to be cold! Orange juice cans of soft drinks or bottles of water! Was hard to get a cold drink unless was a beer from the taps! Also my apartment was 207! Toilet seat was broken so was shower head! We had to ask for room to be cleaned! All in all I've a good time no matter where I go but I would not stay back in these apartments!

The best thing about my stay was...

The company and sunshine 😀
