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.

Pre Christmas Getaway

Another marvellous holiday in the wondeful family run Hotel. Everyone so friendly, polite and helpful. Even the Hotel cat, Tom, makes you feel very welcome. Our room was perfect, super view, warm, clean and quiet. We cannot find even the smallest fault with this Hotel and we only wished we could have stayed on for Christmas and New Year. We are already planning our next visit later this year. We can fully recommend this gem of a Hotel. Julia & StuartMore

Much Loved Hotel

Just returned from week half board and score following: overall 4 cleanliness 4 location 3 rooms 4 service 4 value 4. Lovely pet friendly hotel with two beautiful resident cats. Charming decor and layout with it's nooks and crannies, secret stairways and surprise sitting rooms. Almost everyone we met was on a return visit. Food lovely, staff all pleasant, entertainment good. Unfortunately it was on hill but overall experience of hotel compensated nicely for this.More

4th. New Year holiday.

Our party of four adults spent our fourth New Year stay at this great value hotel. A warm welcome received from very friendly staff. The New Year's Eve party is excellent , lovely food , free flowing drinks and great fun entertainment. We requested adjacent sunny balcony rooms and were allocated the same. We enjoyed 9 days of warm and sunny weather. This is a wonderful value hotel. We will return.More

This is the 3rd time we have been to this Family run hotel in the last 4 years and we meet people who have been going for years. It is out of season but the hotel always holds a good level of visitors. New years eve is again a full night of entertainment which is superb, anyone visiting this hotel will definately enjoy their stay.More

Lovely hotel

Stayed for a week over Christmas 2014. Staff were friendly and helpful. Many of the other guests had been going to the Do Cerro for years and knew each other well, but they were still friendly and welcoming to us newcomers. Had a spacious room (112) with a sea view. Food at both breakfast and dinner was excellent. There was a good range of vegetarian options to preorder if there was nothing suitable for us in the evening buffet. The hotel put on a lovely Christmas banquet with free port, wine and brandy. Made use of the bus that stops outside the hotel to get to the bus station to travel further afield. Cannot understand the negative reviews. Very sorry we hadn't booked for longer to include the New Year celebrations. Since we are used to hilly Whitby we did not find the hills of Albufeira a problem. Would love to go back.More
