Just up the road from the beach and Albufeira’s old town, this family-run hotel has lots of character and sea views to write home about.
The Do Cerro is on a quiet hillside street just 5 minutes’ walk from one of Albufeira’s best beaches, Praia Dos Pescadores, and 10 minutes from the old town. Thanks to its high-up position, it’s got great views across Albufeira Bay.
The hotel feels more individual than most, thanks to its traditional rooms and hidden-away sun terraces.

My wife and I stayed here all inclusive for two weeks in June/July. We were welcomed by Paula who was very helpful and made sure we had everything for our stay. We had paid extra for a sea view and were allocated room 11, which was up several flights of stairs and sadly, no lift! However, what a view - wow!!! If you are considering this hotel, pay the extra for a sea view. Rooms 11, 12 and 14. The room itself, whilst being a little old fashioned, did benefit from excellent air-conditioning, a really comfortable bed and that amazing view! It was also spotlessly clean. The reason you get the views is of course because the hotel is located quite high up on a hillside, it didn't bother us but if you're not a fan of walking, then it might not be for you! The pool area was well maintained, with some more private areas and we never struggled for sunbeds. The cafe was open from 11 am serving drinks and snacks which were all really nice. Lunch was served in 'The Canteen' To us this was the only let down and if anyone from Do Cerro reads this please consider moving the lunch buffet into the cafe area where the snooker table and dozens of mainly unused sofas are located. It would be a much more pleasant environment than being shut away in the back room with no windows, All our breakfast (with HOT coffee!) and evening meals were excellent, we did hear some complaints from other guests but were we more than happy with both the choice and quality of the food. After our evening meal, we usually moved on to the bar where some good (and some quite dodgy) entertainment was laid on, but it's a comfortable area with very helpful staff, This is a family run hotel, not one of the mundane chain hotels and as such is quite individual with some interesting features, it's quirky and probably not to everyone's taste. We loved our stay here and would definitely return. Big thanks to all the staff at The Do Cerro!!More

Great service, friendly staff
Nice hotel, rooms clean and a good size. Pool area small but lots of sunbeds and pleasant atmosphere. Away from the bars and clubs so quiet but only a short walk. Front of house very friendly and lots of information given about the hotel and surrounding area at check in. Breakfast was fine and my stay was pleasant. Value for money seems about right.More
Had a lovely two week stay. Staff were brilliant. It's a very very steep hill to get to the old town so I wouldn't recommend for anyone with mobility issues. Food was very good and changed daily. Rooms very clean. Although it says on the website that they clean the rooms twice weekly they actually came everyday. We went away for husbands b'day. They only had our booking in details but they phoned husband in the morning to wish him happy birthday and sent a bottle of Champagne to the room in the afternoon. This hotel is on my repeat visit list.More

fell short of expectations
not reall 4 star --maybe because there is spa it gets the extra star ? Breakfast notgreat and buffet not kept stocked up-20 min wait for baco one morning --20 min wait for bread another morning! Boiled eggs available -but no egg cups!!They would not give you any ice for drink in your room or balcony---unless you paid 2 euro!!Not impressed at all with food offering-Do not go all inclusive -you will not be happy. Hotel allows small dogs in rooms--not for me! Room sevice ok but only offer towel change 3 times a week-if you want more you pay e1.80 per towel!! -Positives- -good pool --good beds-- good barman at night-good shower -good massage.More
