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.

This was our first time in Madeira and it is a beautiful and charming place. Everything about Hotel Dias was wonderful, the Dias family who own the hotel and the Staff are FANTASTIC. Highly recommend this lovely small & friendly hotel. Ideal for couple's, very relaxing, tranquil, charming. I could go on. I am fascinated by lizards and I saw plenty even though the ones I saw were were tiny creatures. Plenty of place's to visit either by taxi or the tour buses. The weather was a bit of a mixture but fine. We would really love to go back to this hotel at some point.More

My review title describes our stay at the ALBERGARIA DIAS.Our daughter booked this for our 50th wedding aniversery and when we arrived at our room we were greeted with flowers and champagne, bearing in mind that this was our first time using this hotel,this was a nice suprise, and assure you it will not be our last. The hotel is family run and the service and welcome by all staff is so great you start to feel part of the family.Although the entire staff made our stay so nice Mr Dias has to be mentioned for his enthusiasm to make your stay so nice, at his age, (i am not going to reveal),he leads by example and it is shown in the brilliance of his staff.The hotel is well situated for Restraunts, cable car, taxis and buses and within easy stroll of the city centre.We highly recommend the ALBERARIA DIAS.More

For our last 3 nights in Funchal we booked into the Albergaria Dias. Having spent time staying in the Lido (hotel) section we wanted to experience staying in the Old Town area. The location is excelllent - just out the back gate and within seconds you are right in the heart of the restaurants and shops of Old Town. Also, very close to the new promenade and marina. The hotel while not 5 star in luxury, concernly offers 5 star service. The hotel and the grounds (with a swimming pools) are immaculately kept. The rooms, while not the largest, have everything needed to ensure a comfortable stay. The staff and Mr. Diez (the owner) make sure that each guest is well-looked after. 5 star hotels could certainly learn from the level of service provided by this family owned and operated hotel. The breakfast buffet is excellent - featuring a wonderful fresh fruit salad made daily by Mr. Diez and a large selection of hot and cold items. Would definitely recommend and hopely return in the future.More

This was our second stay and again we were not disappointed! This hotel really is one of the best,good food and service,lovely setting within the old town but quiet, clean and friendly. No wonder they need you to book in advance!!I also like the fact that it is a small hotel.we upgraded to the suite which has a large balcony overlooking the old town and sea.lovely views.the suite itself is very large with a separate living room,fridge,bedroom and bathroom with a powerful shower which fits 2 and a large bath for 2!bliss!!!!well worth the upgrade.Mr Dias makes the most amazing tomato soup and we took some home with us.we will be back!!!More

We love this hotel and return every year. The staff are so pleasant and the hotel is immaculately clean. If you like the large corporate hotels with lots of facilities don't bother but if you want somewhere small and friendly this hotel cannot be beaten. Thank you Snr Dias and staff for another wonderful holiday.More
