Hotel Do Cerro


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.

Lovely hotel

Stayed here for 10 nights. Lovely clean friendly hotel. Room cleaned and beds made every day. Clean towels every other day. Staff friendly and helpful. We had a room looking over pool on 3rd floor. Pool area lovely and clean. Snack bar and poolside cafe wuth snacks drinks and icecreams. Plenty of sunbeds if you get up at 7am to bag one. Jeez some people take this so seriously that everyone has to join in or you dont get a sunbed. People leave towels on them and then go out all day and dont even use the beds. Terrible! Should be stopped! The food in restaurant was lovely. There was a buffet which was nice but can be repeated a few times thro the week. The Al a Carte menu was nice too. Especially the steaks! It could be pricey tho. The coffee was nice but the cups were small and you didnt even get a full cup. There is not anything for children to do at the hotel apart from the pool. Entertainment in the bar on a night is mostly for adults. So beware if you have children. My son is 11 and was bored. As for Albufeira itself there is not a lot to do. Unless you like lying in the sun all day and drinking all night. Yes there are boat trips and water parks. None of them are cheap. Been to one water park been to them all. We did a boat trip which was great and the albufeira open top bus trip. Make sure you find out the correct time the bus picks you up. Nearest stop is number 17 down hill. We got told it started at 9am and sat and waited 2 hours for a bus which came after we got sick of waiting and left. Bus starts at 9am at stop number 1. You have to work out how long it will take for it to get to stop 17. Crazy! The Old Town is now just like the strip! Rows of bars with touts trying to get you inside. Couldn't see anything of history left of once what was probably a beautiful place. Blackpool in the sun if its your kind if place. The hotel brilliant ...the resort horrible Also be aware that when uts peak season or a public holiday the ATMs are emptied and you cannot get money out from Friday until Monday. None of the bars take only! Fab hotel tho :-)More


August 2014 holiday

We stayed at this hotel first fortnight August 2014. Staff were very friendly, hotel is very quirky but lovely. Pool nice and the rooms were very clean. My complaint is that we went all inclusive and felt like a second class citizen. Third time to Albufeira, first time to this hotel would not go back. When asking for water we were given a cup as we were all inclusive and they don;t give bottled water to all inclusive guests. Next thing was we could not get table service inthe bar as we were all inclusive. First time ver we have been treated like this. First two years we stayed all inclusive at a three star hotel and were treated better. We were going on a day trip to Lisbon and we were leaving at 6.30 in the morning, we could only get a continental breakfast that consisted of bread left at a toaster and a kettle to make tea/coffee. They would not provide us with a packed lunch even though we were all inclusive as they said they did not have staff in at that time of the morning. You were not entitled to ice cream after 3pm unless you paid for it also. We had to pay 4 Euros per day for the fridge in our room. Another thing was the afternoon tea - this comprised of tea/coffe and a stale teacake or a biscuit!!!! Never have we been treated like this on an all inclusive holiday.I am sorry but if you are taking all inclusive guests, it should mean all inclusive. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone although as I said previously the staff could not have been nicer. Entertainment left a lot to be desired also. Dogs barking all night and attacking people walking down the street outside the hotel was not good either.More

So glad we moved here!

After one night in a different hotel we found everything here 100% better! Lovely room, lovely pool, welcoming, friendly staff and great food. There was entertainment most nights, although we tended to go into the old town which was walking distance, but steep steps/ hills coming back.More

A Child's Point of View

I'm 11 and I stayed here at the end of July to the beginning of August for 12 days with my Mum and Dad. This hotel is a quirky hotel with lots of great features, the rooms were a spotless and the electricity was good. However, for me I would only recommend for couples with no children as the pool is quite small and there is no games room or playground. Also there was a few members of staff who were quite grumpy and weren't very good with kids. The breakfast was ok but there wasn't that much choice and the time (8:00- 10:00) wasn't too cracking for us because we're early birds and also my Mum said that the coffee was RUBBISH so be aware coffee lovers! The indoor swimming pool was nice to relax in but I don't like the fact that if you don't bring a swimming cap with you, then you have to but one for €5.00 or you can't go down. The area that the hotel was in wasn't the best because you had to walk down a lot of hills. The only complaint me and my parents have is that lots of people (mostly British and German) put their towels down really early in the morning which is not fair because some times people don't come till lunch time! Overall I wouldn't stay here again but I would if I was married with no kids.More

Great Hotel

Great hotel, stayed there beginning of July, great value., very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast very good, staff extremely friendly and helpful. Pool excellent. Location good although quite high up was only a 10 minute walk into old town and taxi back only €5 if you didn't fancy the walk. Requested sea view which we had-beautiful view of Albufeira bay. Would definitely stay there again.More
