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.

Great Holiday just returned Sunday 28th

A lovely quirky hotel with friendly staff just couldn't find fault with anything. Food very good and a fair selection given that it is a small hotel. We had room 316 which had a sea view as requested, towels and bedding changed on a regular basis. If you want a sunbed by the pool need to put towels down early like everyone else does. One recommended trip is the Tuk Tuk ride which lasts for 1 hour and costs 30 euros for 2/3 people you can book at reception also the sand sculptures which we booked from down in the old town at the bucket shop just by the tunnel to the beach for 2 of us it costs 34 euros well worth a look we felt. Look forward to going back at sum pointMore

Returned home 25th June 2015. I booked a half board holiday at the Do Cerro thinking is was going to be the board type for all guest but found out it also did all inclusive. The hotel was spotlessly clean every where, the staff were friendly, our room had a wonderful sea view(19) with a separate second bedroom which was great for our granddaughter. The bathroom was a bit of a night mare due to the positioning of the toilet behind the door which did not open fully, the bath and shower I found to be a health hazard if you had small children you would be unable to bath them due to the glass shower. Also to get to the room you went up steps out into a garden then down steps and through a door up more steps to get to your room. If you aren't too good on your legs this is not the hotel for you. Every thing was up and down steps. Food at the Do Cerro thank god we did not up grade to all inclusive, the breakfasts were ok but the evening meals were not to our standard and we ended up eating out 6 nights out of 10. The hotel is at the top of a very steep hill but the location was good for the old town and the beach. Having spoken to a number of guests most of them found the food good, wished we had found this so. Pool and in door pool were lovely but be down early for a sun bed as towels are put on beds which then stay empty for hours this was very annoying. We will not return to this hotel.More

Perfect Portugal

Lovely hotel in a lovely location. The a Hotel do Cerro is one on its own. A real quirky hotel with some real nice touches. Stayed here on a half board basis. Breakfast was lovely the evening meal a little hit or miss. Superb terrace that overlooks Albefuira, spent some lovely nights up there !!! Rooms lovely and clean and staff friendly. The only thing that was a little disappointing was the cost of the fridge in the room €4 a day, thought this was a little high. Overall absolutely loved this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.......loved it !!More

lovely hotel and staff very helpful, we paid extra for a sea view room and when we got there our view was a carpark and school, but changed rooms so as we overlooked the pool, the reception was very good and had us changed within an hour. The food was not that good with choices very limited.Lunch choices were not good as there wasn't any cold meat or cheese to accompany our salad.We would go to the hotel again but would go B&B.More

Hotel with fantastic view

Great experience, magnificent location overlooking sea. Walking distance to Port / Harbour, old town and beach. There is a lift that takes you down from the lower level promenade to the beach. Buffet breakfast and dinner very good. If you want more local food go to Harbour. Good size pool if you want to be lazy. Some Brits I am ashamed to say had the habit of reserving longers with towels and then not turning up till midday. Not Hotels fault but a 'no towels on beds' rule before about 9am could be put in place like some Hotels have. Difficult to enforce though unless you employ a pool person.More
