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.

poor at best

Yes this hotel is clean and commfortouble but thats the only good bit, the staff are helpfull and most are friendly, but the all inclusive is very poor so was the food its no as we usually expect, not available all day not even for the kids and a more miserable bar man i never saw he shook the tips plate when any one went for a drink, the breakfast was fine but lunch and evening meals were naff to be polite there was a fair walk to the lift to the first floor then another long walk to the second lift to take us to the 4th floor and another long walk to our room, considring I informed them that my wife has poor mobility I was surprised, we ate and drank out may nights as the AI was just not up to it, the list of extras that you have to pay for is so long I cannot go there so I'd recommend it as a 2 star B &BMore

All inclusive ??

My friends were booked in here and i was unable to as they do not take solo travellers! They were all inclusive and i paid to eat at their hotel . Their room was a fair size but had no tea making facilities . They had to pay to use the fridge and safe. The food was not that good which led us to frequently eat out. The pool was clean and although the hotel had notices up about not reserving sun loungers , towels were placed on many . The entertainment was hit and miss. Hotel was clean but noisey at times. Walking to the beach/old town/marina was fine but walking back in heat was problematic for some as it is all up hill.More

Lovely Hotel

We have just got back from Hotel do cerro after spending 10 wonderful nights there.The hotel was really clean and the staff were really pleasant and helpful. Our room was a family room 2 rooms with very comfortable beds air conditioned and a large tv.We had a very large balcony with 2 sunbeds and patio table.The rooms were cleaned every day and beds made.We went all inclusive there was plenty of variety of foods didnt need to eat between meals as we were full as the lunch and dinner were 3 course and you helped yourself. It was very quiet and relaxing as it was more for couples but saying that my son had a great time would go back again thanks for a wonderful holidayMore

Can highly recommend this little Gem of Hotel..Clean beds and daily towel change and maids are all very nice..Good variety of food on our Half board basis and the restaurant staff Elisa,Ana,Dila,Jenny and not forgetting Eduardo do a brilliant job of looking after you.The entertainment some nights are good from karaoke to dancers and while watching the acts the Barman Manuel will keep you topped up with your drink orders with a smile on his face he does a fantastic job alongside John who is also great..We stayed in room 232 pool view which gets the sun all day and is lovely to sit on the veranda soaking it up or go to the pool which also has a lovely little cafeteria..The hotel has a bus stop just round the corner which will take you to the Marina and the main square where there are lovely little shops and stalls and not forgetting the beautiful beach..I must also mention all the staff on reception who do a wonderful job to make you feel welcome when you arrive and will kindly help if any problems arise or help if you want to book trips etc.We have been going to this hotel for many years and look forward to many years to followMore
