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.

The hotel staff made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. Our room was right at the front of the building and above the restaurant and had a balcony which was overlooking the sea. To gain access to the room we had to go up a spiral staircase, it was quirky but homely and comfortable. The food was good but one minor suggestion would be to have fried eggs also at breakfast. Location was central but one needed to be reasonably fit because of the steep slopes and steps to get to the old town and beach and back again. The old town was about 10 min. walk away. A bit disappointed with it because it consisted mainly of restaurants, bars, clubs and souvenir shops. Though having said that it did have a nice square. All in all had an enjoyable stay and would definitely come back again.More
My husband and I wanted a quick midweek get away, we worried about having a good hotel that was quite but did have some form of life. Well we found it, we had a room with a balcony sea view, the room was huge with a queen bed with drapes. The bathroom was spacious with a powerful shower, all being in the bath. We had an television with English channels, free wifi The food was very nice at breakfast and although we didn't get time the evening meal itwas highly recommended. The pool was very quite but welcoming, lots of people but such a relaxing atmosphere I met so many who come every year to this hotel, we are early 40's (which is always worth mentioning, to say it welcomes all ages) Downside, no tea and coffee making facilities in the room and coffee wasn't that great taut you had to buy at the bar, but other than that this hotel had all the personal touches and was more like a family atmosphere that a hotel... Will be returning xx thank you More
lovely hotel , staff polite and friendly, room was dated but we liked it as was old style decor. nice quiet hotel food was ok, drinks where good, every where was nice and clean. 5- 10 minute was to albruferia, plenty of shops bars etc. nice beach and marina was short walk away from hotel. we went for a nice relaxing week away and is just what we got, could have stayed another week. will be going backMore
First time to this Area and Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guests we met who visit regularly were first class and were very welcoming. The Staff were excellent, Elise, Anna, Manuel and Juan in particular , with the poolside bar staff a close second. The spirits were good measures but the lager (sagres) flat most of the time. Great Food every day, the Dinner area was like a restaurant rather than a dining hall, which was a highlight. The Lounge and outer area were great fun in the evening and was great if you dont fancy going out out . Will def return ....More

First time visiting Portugal for us, wasn't too impressed with the hotel for what we were looking for but it wasn't awful. Think we were the only young couple - there was mainly ages 50+ to be honest. The food was good however to pay for all inclusive I wasn't atall happy about what we got for it. We got breakfast lunch dinner at set times but between that we had to pay for food.. Even though we were all inclusive and stated that? Our used towels didn't get changed/washed, just folded up for us to reuse. And if you're anything higher than the second floor (like we were) the elevator only goes to the second floor. Then you have to walk down the hallway and get another elevator which understandably after a week gets frustrating and seems unnecessary. Walk to the beach/strip wasn't to bad. About 10 minutes but the walk is steep uphill. Have to pay 4â¬ a day for the fridge as well. The receptionist/s were lovely and pleasant however the maids and waiters were extremely rude and slightly intimidating. Just wanted to give an honest review. Wouldn't return to this hotel but the country itself was beautiful. More
