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.

If your looking for a nice quiet hotel with a nice Seaview this is your hotel. I mean I would go half board here as it's not really big and updated but the food is great. It's not a far walk to the old town or the beach. One bad part is the hill you got to walk back up lol. Again hotel is really nice good place to be but not alot for the children. If I ever wanted a few days break I'd diff go here for some relaxing days. Well done to the hotel.More
Short review. Stayed for 10 days with girlfriend, nice location just a few minutes away from the old town. A stones throw away from the beach, not the best beach Albufeira has to offer but it was nice Hotel staff were very helpful when anything was needed, buffet food but they changed the menu quite ofen all in all i would visit againMore

Our fourth stay at Hotel do Cerro, not been since 2014, but just as enjoyable as our previous three visits. Booked direct with the hotel and asked for a pool-view room. Not only did we have a pool view, but a wonderful view of the bay of Albufeira. Thank you, Paulo. Nothing much has changed - still good breakfasts (hot and cold buffet), comfortable bedroom and friendly staff. No resident puss-cats (Tommy and Shana) now as some miserable git complained about their presence to the authorities and they have been found new homes. Do try a trip on a Tuk Tuk, not the most comfortable means of transport, but good fun. Not sure why the hotel offers all-inclusive holidays, it is really not geared up to it and not necessary as there are so many excellent bars and restaurants to be found just 10 minutes away in the Old Town. Also, there are no activities for children. We love this hotel - quiet, peaceful and relaxing, lovely views of the bay from the outside bar terrace, and a place to really unwind. Will be back next year. Can someone turn down the volume of the seagull's dawn chorus please, and some more plug sockets in the bedrooms would be appreciated, Lindsay and MikeMore
We stayed for 2 weeks all inclusive. Quite a few hidden costs (fridge, towel hire, playing pool) and it's only all inclusive during structured times and concludes at 11pm. I wouldn't think of its offering as typical of an all inclusive experience. Food was good with reasonable variety although breakfast was the same offering each day. But most mealtimes there was something for everyone (children included). The staff are extremely helpful, with nothing too much trouble. Hotel is quirky, dated in some areas and more modern in others. The lunch area felt like a school canteen and the dinner restaurant was downstairs and indoors - had hoped to dine al fresco. Lovely bar with roof top terrace and friendly staff (Manuel in particular!) The pool area is great, clean and no issues with getting a sunbed. The location is good and after everything we ate a walk up the hill from town did us good! All in all, a nice stay. The helpfulness and professionalism of the hotel staff made it for us. More
good points: very nice staff, very good pool, very good sunbeds with very comfy matts on them, safe 1euro 10cent a night, 12euro 50 cent deposit. bad points: advertised as a spa which it is, i can understand paying for spa treatment, however everything also has a cost to it, cost for gym, sauna,Jacuzzi, not sure if cost for indoor pool?? 4euros per day for fridge in the room (shocking) even worse: we were left 2 bottles water in our room on arrival ( with small kit kats) which was nice, but, the water was not cold so asked at the pool bar for cup of ice to be told ok but its 2 euro per cup....WHAT....their exchange rate was a pound for a euro.....rip off...rooms ok, cleaned daily, not new towels everyday tho, met a couple cockroaches in the corridor coming in at night but heyho....would only go back if changes to the above were made....More
