Hotel Albergaria Dias  

This family-run hotel gives you a pretty pool, great local food, and a setting that’s handy for trips into town.

This authentic little hotel is tucked away in the hills above Funchal’s old town. That said, it’s only about a 10-minute walk from the marina. Back at base, there’s a pool framed by well-kept gardens.

Breakfast is served in a sunny room by the pool. There’s also a bar where you can enjoy local snacks and wines indoors or out. Last but not least, there’s a small gym and a sauna to unwind in.

Still the best

It is 3 years since we last visited Madeira and of course it had to be a return to Albergaria Dias. Mr Dias senior and junior were there to meet us as usual and we had a lovely greeting from Celilia who remembered us. Everything was as we expected a good room on the 3rd floor with a good view, breakfast excellent and of course the wonderful fruit salad.. It is such a quiet little hotel in the old town and if you love peace and quiet you could do no better. It is a small hotel where you are not a number you are a member of the familyMore

What a great find

First time in Madeira and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Warm welcome at reception and introduction to other staff together with welcome drink. Owner then came out to welcome us. Just like one big family and nothing too much trouble. Mr Dias the owner was there at breakfast time to make sure everything was ok and even did the cooking. His homemade tomato juice was a great hit with me as was his fresh fruit salad. There is a pathway that leads from the rear of the hotel straight into the Old Town where there is a huge selection of restaurants and bars catering for your every need. Happy to see no Indian food here. Short walk to cable car that takes you to Monte and then the famous toboggan ride back down. What an amazing experience. Food and drink quality at restaurants and bars amazing. Did not have a bad meal and we tried quite a few restaurants. The Madeirans have a great sense of humour if you share with them and all speak perfect English, which puts us to shame. Thanks to all the staff at the hotel for looking after us and making our first visit so enjoyable. I just love small hotels with a family atmosphere and this ticked all the boxes. Mr Dias was also there to say goodbye when we left. Thanks one again and thanks for my little gift Mr Dias. It has pride of place at home as a constant reminder of a wonderful holiday. Can't wait to see you all again.More

Perfect hotel

We have just spent a wonderful week on the lovely island of Maderia made all the more special by the quality of this hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean with all the facilities one would expect in a top class hotel. We were met all the staff including the owner, Mr Dias, on arrival, were given a guided tour of the hotel, and provided with a complimentary drink before being taken to our room. We were not particularly aware of the staff during the week but everything just happened like clockwork in the background. Breakfast on the terrace was particularly relaxing and generally included the now famous fruit salad. The pool was spotlessly clean and very inviting particularly after a spending time on the sun loungers We will be paying this hotel a visit in the future and would recommend it anyone Abregado Mr. Dias and your staffMore

An oasis of calm

In addition to everything that has been said several times over the extra benefits for me and my partner were the privacy of the room balcony, and the tranquility and calm of the place due to the absence of the most annoying things often found in other places, for example piped music, loutish guests, loud conversations in person or on mobile phones, lack of consideration towards fellow guests. It was perfect for relaxation and de-stressing. Thank you.More

Here we are again

I can't remember how many times we have been back to this fabulous, friendly, fantastic and faultless hotel but here we are again. Our arrival this time was even more friendly - hugs and kisses this time - so I think that everyone was pleased to see us? It was delightful to see both Mr Dias snr and Mr Dias jnr again and they are still exceptionally proud of their hotel. They pointed out all the spendid certificates that are filling up the walls in Reception and why not? I will not waste space by repeating what others have written because everything is just the same high standard so I will just give you an example of the help received. We celebrated our 49th Wedding Anniversary during our stay and Cecilia, on Reception, was a gem. My husband wanted to arrange some flowers and chocolates for the actual day and she organised him! She organised the flower delivery for the correct day, explained where he could buy hand made chocolates and then she put them in the hotel's fridge until they were required. On the actual morning, whilst we were at breakfast she went into action - the flowers and chocolates were delivered to our room - and rose petals were scattered on the carpet. What a wonderful surprize but typical of the kindness and service of this hotel. There will be changes soon as Mr Dias snr has bought the empty property at the bottom of the garden and will be transforming it into more accommodation once "planning permission" is granted. We are sure that it too will be an excellent addition to this amazing hotel. Please book early and enjoy your stay - you will not be disapointed.More
