Hotel Do Cerro

Hotel Do Cerro, Albufeira Portugal

★   ★   ★    ★

A popular quality orientated option, in a calm and non-touristy area with relatively easy access to the cliff top promenade and old town area.

The property attracts discerning guests who appreciate the character of the interior, in spite of the disjointed layout.

Previously known as the Estalagem Do Cerro, the property is sometimes regarded as trying to be a little more superior than its facilities permit!

Exterior

Presentable grey and white coloured buildings, split into 2 buildings which are linked by a bridge over the road. There are some classical embellishments which add a little character and a number of small flower boxes provide some colour and interest. All rooms have a balcony, some of which are more airy than others.

Property type: Hotel

Balcony/Terrace: All rooms

Storeys: 4

Built Year: 1970s

Exterior: Buildings

Interior

The interior décor is pleasing and well maintained although the buildings are somewhat disjointed. The small lobby has a tiny reception desk and an intimate bar has comfortable furnishings and a piano.

A conservatory lounge is particularly inviting and looks over the street whilst the sizeable restaurant has traditional decor and well spaced tables. An additional lounge area has a view over the pool.

Rooms: 95

Grounds

The grounds are compact and many guests expect more from a property of this category. The cramped pool surround has a limited supply of sun-loungers and an attractive display of shrubs and flowering plants. Trailing vines add style and interest.

Location

Area Type: Located 600m to the w of the old town centre, in what is primarily a residential area of calm and untouristic apartment and low rise houses.
