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.

This is a very good even though I was not staying at the hotel I always was made to feel very welcome staff very friendly and fantastic entertainment on every evening the restaurant next door is very goodMore
Great location and staff, but misadvertised
To be clear, the location of this hotel is fantastic, and the staff is generally very friendly, but the actual hotel infrastructure and amenities are mostly terrible, and certainly not worthy of a 4 star rating. The internet never worked inside of the room, so when myself and my wife were unable to do any work or planning in the room. Instead, when a problem came up at work, I had to sit in the hotel lobby for hours while the attached bar was at full blast. The cafe attached to the pool is run down and has a severely limited selection, and the pool itself is a very crowded area. Among the nice things are the breakfast, which is standard, but the food was good and it does not close crazy early if you are a night owl like me. The attached bar had a fantastic live show and it was packed, but it was a much older than us and, thus, the music was a bit dated. In my opinion, the hotel should be 3 stars at best (it might have been 4 stars in the mid-eighties). I was expecting "quirky" , but this hotel is definitely not that... It feels like a place that has ignored everything that has happened in the world since 1985. Again, the staff was mostly helpful and the location is great, but be prepared for some very dated decor and unstable or non-existent internet connectivity.More
Thought I'd be a bit different and write a review while we're still here, this Hotel Do Cerro is one if the best I've stayed in, we've been here a week and have a week to go, I'm sat around the pool now in glorious sunshine having just had another superb breakfast, the hotel staff are so helpful, food is excellent, good evening entertainment, great views over the bay from the rooftop terrace, the location is perfect, a slight incline down to the old town a 10 min walk with so many shops, bars, and restaurants, street entertainers, so so friendly, 10/10 15/10 if that's possible.More

Very Good, could have been excellent
Just returned from a 2 week all inclusive holiday with my wife and we really enjoyed it. The hotel itself is extremely quirky and takes a few days for you to really find your bearings. 5 minutes down the hill to old town 20 minutes back up. Although there are several ways up from straight and very steep to a meandering walk through the streets. The staff are mostly helpful and happy, I say mostly as the nightshift desk manager was a waste of space and the most unhelpful person we have had the displeasure of meeting at any hotel. The rooms were large and the view across the ocean was fantastic. If you get a sea view room then get up early enough to see the sunrise. The food at this hotel is amazing and we were impressed with every meal we had. The only thing that stopped me giving this a 5 star rating was the fact that AI guests were treated slightly different in the bar in the evenings. If you were AI you had to queue at the bar to get your drink, but if you were paying for your drink you got a waiter service. What they must remember is AI guests have already paid so should be treated as equals. Wi~Fi throughout is excellent Would I recommend this hotel - Yes, if only for the food and viewsMore
