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

We had a very nice stay at this hotel, our room was on the third floor and had a sea view, the room had a full bathroom which was a good size , shower was powerful and always plenty of hot water also had a decent hairdryer and a/c and wifi were free, the wifi signal was better in public areas . We hired the small fridge which was really a beer cooler but was ok for our needs. We stayed bed and breakfast and there was plenty of variety every morning. Most evenings there was entertainment some good some bad but good fun. The pool area is nice and clean with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The hotel is uphill but a bus stop is nearby. We would stay here again.More

Lovely Hotel, Great Staff

Had room no.3 overlooking old town and ocean. Perfect location for old town and marina without being right in the heart of the hustle & bustle. It is up a very steep hill and so not ideal if you have walking difficulties but we didn't find it a problem and we are in our late 60s. Breakfast excellent with continental and English style breakfast. Only had dinner once in the hotel and, to be honest, it wasn't as good as we had in local restaurants but it wasn't mega expensive and fine if you didn't fancy going out. Lovely outdoor pool although we didn't use because late in season & too cold but we did take advantage of the plentiful sunbeds. Couldn't fault the staff, very friendly and helpful and excellent English. Free wifi but it was pretty hit & miss.More

Loved our Halloween break

The staff at do Cerro are all so friendly it helped make a great holiday. Food spot on and plenty of it, rooms very clean, wifi strength okay and decent TV's. We were on h/b and I looked forward to every mealtime, lots of choice. Hotel is on a hill in the old town so if ur restricted mobility it may be a bit of a chore, otherwise it's a pleasant 5-10min walk. Albuferia town much better than I expected; pleasant to wander around in the evening. Our trip was end of October and I would definitely return again at similar time, can't comment for peak season. I'd imagine hotel pool area would be crowded peak season, but the main beach is lovely.More

Albuferia holiday

The location of the hotel was good in between the marina and the old town. In a elevated view of the town and beach front, on the bus route for getting around, would go back to same hotel again and worth getting a sea view room.More
