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

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

The best

This is simply the best hotel in Funchal and we are already booked in for our next [10th] visit. The problem is that it spoils you for staying anywhere else as it is in such an ideal location. It does not have the facilities of the larger hotels but it is spotlessy clean & friendly and the breakfast is fantastic. There are little finishing touches that make it a pleasure to stay here - bath robes, a little fridge in the room to keep your water cold, a powerful hairdryer that actually works properly & an adequate supply of toiletries and tissues in the bathroom. It also has the friendliest and most thorough chambermaids we have ever come across.More


Good accommodation and top class service

I am not going to repeat all of the positives already written by the reviewers who had a very good or excellent experience at this hotel. The hotel lives up to it's reputation. We had room 101 which overlooks the pathway at the side of the garden area and, with all of the vegetation that grows to the front of the balcony it is a really nice outlook and we did not miss the view of the sea at all. Breakfast is very good varied standard fare. Location is excellent. I will comment on the staff at this hotel just to repeat what has been said by many; without exception they are first class and clearly take pride in doing a good job. If you are looking for the personal touch that good, small family hotels bring then this is the place for you. You will be hard pushed to find a better experience of that type in Funchal. Their reputation and position on Tripadvisor is very well earned.More

A little gem in Madeira

This was our first visit to Madeira and I am so glad that we chose this hotel. The staff and owner, Mr Dias, were so friendly and polite from the moment we arrived until the time we left. They really made you feel welcome and special.On arrival we were met by the reception staff and Mr Dias who all introduced themselves, and then taken on a guided tour of the hotel and introduced to the bar staff. Our room wasn't quite ready so we were offered a complimentary drink while we waited and were even upgraded to a 2nd floor room. The room was spotlessly clean, as was all the hotel, with great views from the balcony of the sea and passing cruise ships. The breakfast was amazing with such a vast choice, including the famous "fruit salad " prepared by Mr Dias who came out of the kitchen to say good morning every day. We had a few snacks at lunchtime and the mixed salad was huge and so fresh and tasty ! The hotel was situated ideally for the short walk through the walkway next to the pool area straight into the Old Town which had numerous restaurants, the sea front and cable car. We would definitely recommend this hotel and will go back again. On leaving we were treated like old friends by the staff and Mr Dias and given a very friendly send off. Wonderful !!!More
