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.

Labyrinth hotel, I'd say
Stayed here for one night during my road trip. Honestly didn't give it much thought before booking but the hotel was pleasant. You might have to pay for a dental kit but then again it is more like a budget hotel with good facilities. You get a good view of the whole coastal town from the front of the hotel. Hotel seems to have been extended over time into several properties given how it goes like a labyrinth. But over all I had a nice room with a small balcony. My AC in the room was noisy, but since I was staying for just one night it wasn't too bad. At 10pm I wanted to grab some stuff and staff at the desk directed me to a small corner shop 2 minutes walk away which had almost everything. Run by a Punjabi, it seems like they are in no hurry to go home and you can get almost all convenience into the night when everything else is closed.More
The first thing to say is about the location! It's a very central hotel, if you go right downhill for around ten/fifteen minutes there's the harbour, which is a quieter area with some restaurants and pubs, and if you go straight down, the beach is ten minutes away, as well as being a short distance from the old town shops in the same direction as the beach. Before booking, we saw lots of negative comments about the hill, and although this didn't put us off, it may throw others. We are from Wales so maybe that's why, but the hill really isn't that bad, we liked the fact it was on a hill as the view surrounding is amazing! The hotel staff are lovely, and very helpful. The hotel is decorated so nicely, very quirky. Rooms have a hairdryer and a TV, with a little balcony seating area. There is also a fan in the room which is lovely in the night when it's a little humid in the room. The pool is lovely with plenty of sun beds, very clean! We went all inclusive and found the food to be of some of the best quality and variety that we've ever had on holidays. I'm vegetarian and sometimes struggle to eat much abroad, but there's a specific menu you order from each day before 5pm, to ensure there's something you can eat, but even if I didn't order something off this, then there'd be plenty for me to eat. Everything is freshly made, lovely variety of soups, vegetables and lots more. The only thing that could be improved is the attitude towards all inclusive guests, as you can only have things at certain times such as ice cream, and if you have a water, it comes in a small plastic cup where as a paying guest would get a cold bottle, so they just have to bare in mind that we have paid in advance for these services but other than this, there's lots on offer and this hotel is a gem!

We were here two weeks from the 18/05/17 .Room ok not as clean as we would like sheets not changed week two Maids barged in the room when we were not dressed and were bolshy .Cockroach killed in room by my Husband , not nice .informed staff told that's what you get in hot countries !!! Food basic ,ok for the money but it was not to our taste so we went out most of the time. The drinks were we thought very good but we could not understand why we had to pay for tomato juice so not really all inclusive as the times you could get a drink and that included tea we're very strict. Bar staff very nice and friendly . Pool area not as clean as we would like not swept all time we were there.very crowded not enough space for the amount of people in the hotel.so only actually spend time round the pool three times in two weeks , Lastly the hotel is on the top of a very large hill so not really for the unfit if you like to venture out as we do . We would not return as it was not to our taste but good value for money if your on a budget. More
Been here just over a week now and what can I say Staff and food excellent cant fault it but one thing I can fault is the walk to the beach at least 1.5 miles away and down a very steep hill ok going down but coming back up a right killer especially thec moment being in the high 20's weather wise so be prepared Number 2 the entertainment is ok mainly guitarist but ideal if you wanna just relax,same programme every week Number 3 not a place to bring children nothing for them to do no daytime entertainment and as above for evening entertainment But all in all if it looking for a relaxing holiday and are a pool lover this is a holiday for you More
JUST BACK AFTER 2 WEEK STAY
Good clean tidy room, though patio doors could do with a clean. food was excellent as was the service. only 2 complaints...1......coffee at breakfast was awful, it comes from a metal barrel and tastes stewed...........best coffee is at poolside bar served to you from a nescafe machine....they should get 1 for the restaurant too. 2./pool/poolside bar opening hours could be longer. access to poole is closed at 6pm when there is usually 1-2 hrs sun left most days, ideal for anyone who has been out for the day.......also 11.00 am opening for poolbar could be earlier. both minor things...... Really enjoyed our stay and will be returning in 2018More
