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.

We stayed in room 5 which was a family room. We had breakfast included. We went out for dinner each night - there were lots of restaurants to choose from! The only thing we didn't like were the steep hills that we had to go up and down to and from the hotel!. The room was very clean, we had a lovely, large terrace. All staff were very helpful.

Lovely hotel

Cannot fault the hotel. Great stay, location and price. Close to the Old Town, plenty of choice for food and drink. Great family atmosphere. Word of warning regarding the walk back up from town, you need strong legs to tackle the hill!More

Fine - No Major Issues

We stayed for a week in September 2015. The bedroom was fine, clean, comfortable bed and the shower was powerful enough. The food at dinner was not the best we had ever had but was acceptable for the price we paid. The pool area was good for relaxing with a bar area serving drinks and food. The hotel is rather quirky with lots of corridors twisting here and there. The bar area, just off reception, was ideal for pre dinner and after dinner drinks although the entertainment wasn't great. The barman with glasses could also do with being a little more hospitable and not so miserable. Just off the bar is a nice outdoor area to sit and have a drink. One or two comments have been made about the hill up from the town. Yes it is steep but to us was not an issue. There are one or two bars on the way up where you can break your journey!!! Overall a typical holiday holiday hotel, ok food, clean accommodation and most of the staff were pleasant and efficient. Would we go back? Yes?More

Booked through a company on this site. We love this hotel for a variety of reasons it being on a hill not one of them. Although I made a payment the Hotel sent me an e mail explaining that they were closed and the company did not have the right to book this. Head of reception was fantastic he booked us into another hotel for our stay we are moving to Portugal and needed a few days while the purchase was completed. This hotel was pet friendly so It was also ideal for us. As the hotel we were booked onto was not pet friendly he looked and found a kennel not to far away once again the Hotel saved the day the staff at the do cerro are all fantastic some people complain about the food i dont see why i have never had a bad meal there having stayed a few times on an all inclusive basis. Its near to Albufeira old town they are working hard after the recent flooding to get back to normal. I am very grateful for the help they gave the hotel is now closed until Feb 2016.More

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
