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.

Fabulous weeks holiday

This hotel is up the hill between the Marina and Old town square we were a party of 4 seniors but wandered down to the town most nights a taxi back was 5 euros but we even managed to walk back some evenings stopping at David's bar for a cool one at 1.80 a large beer The hotel staff were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble from the cleaning staff to the dining room staff and reception staff. Had the best nights sleep the beds are so comfortable. Our stay was bed and breakfast which we could not fault (fried eggs ordered and delivered to your table) We even had an evening meal in the hotel. Just down the road is the Victoria sports bar with Dave and Carlos this was our last port of call on the way back to the hotel. We are looking to go back in September. Big thank you to all the staff they made our holidayMore

Margaret P,


The staff were brilliant. Hotel room was ready lovely spacious clean room our room was cleaned every day loads of clean towels hot water. The breakfast was lovely. The bar and the terrace bar have great views . The pool was a great surprise, coffee shop just beside it. The hotel is about 10- 15mins to the old town and is a gentle walk. We choose to transfer with Yellowfish taxis, great staff, great prices, great customer service, won't use anyone else.More

Recent trip

Stayed at this hotel from 3 - 8 May. Good hotel, very friendly helpful staff. Pool good, easy to get a sunbed and at this time of year quiet as no children. Food was good and as we were only B&B the Steak House Restaurant was reasonably priced and plenty of it. Location is good, climb to get back to the hotel but not bad. Marina well worth a visit and within walking distance, great boat trip to see coast and caves. Found the locals to be very friendly and polite. The entertainment was not brilliant and found the young female dancers a little uncomfortable to watch especially as they were on the same level as the guests in a small space close to the audience who were, at this time of year, mainly retired couples. Overall good holiday and good hotel - no complaints and no extra charges unlike some places.More

What's Not To Like

Just back from a week at Hotel Do Cerro. Perfectly nice Hotel, friendly staff, good food, clean and good service but I am afraid I will not be back. I like a holiday hotel with a bit more buzz about. The pool was very clean, loungers comfortable and no looking for a space but it was like being in a pool in a library. Nightly entertainment in the lounge was good and varied but maybe just a little too loud if you wanted to have a conversation with other guests. The area around the Hotel has definitely seen better days and the very steep slope from the Hotel into the Old Town would not suit everybody. The Old Town itself is still a good place to watch the world go by. It has numerous restaurants but really not much more unless you like tat shops. I last visited this area 10 years ago and it is still much the same. The beaches are excellent. Clean and well looked after. Overall a good value Hotel but I really need another holiday.More

A lovely stay at a hotel that exceeded expectations

A lovely hotel. The room was spotless, lovely clean sheets and towels changed regularly. Lovely pool area with lots of beds to sunbathe on. Stayed half board and the food was excellent. Great friendly service from all the staff with all questions answered in a prompt and professional manner.More
