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.

Truly Wonderful

I reiterate everything that has already been said about this wonderful gem of a hotel, all of the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them, there are lots of choices for breakfast with the usual cereal, ham, cheese and homemade jams and fruit salad plus hot food, the pool is of a very good size and there are plenty of sun beds, it is only a 5 minute walk into the old town where there are some fantastic restaurants, we have had an amazing time here and we are going to return in 2016. Thank you Mr Dias and all your family and staff for an amazing two weeks.More

Lovely hotel with an excellent staff

We enjoyed a lovely one-week stay in this family friendly hotel. You immediately feel at home in this hotel. The staff is very friendly, giving useful information, suggestions for visits, restaurants etc. Always smiling and sincere. A lot has been written about the breakfast in previous reviews and there is nothing much to add. The fruit salad and the cakes are delicious. Mr. Dias also made every morning a special fruit salad when he heard about my allergy. I really appreciated this! Mr. Dias really enjoys his hotel and guests. His son enjoys a good conversation and a joke as well. To conclude, a lovely place in the old city centre of funchal with an excellent staff. Highly recommend this place and would definitely visit again in the future. More

Amazing hotel

From the moment we arrived until we departed, the hotel and its staff were amazing. We were shown around the hotel and offered a welcome drink. We waited for the room to be ready and to our delight were upgraded to a suite on the top floor. The views were spectacular. It was my husband's birthday the day after we arrived and the hotel left us a bottle of champagne which was a lovely touch. The hotel is extremely clean and the breakfast was good. Bacon, tomatoes and a different egg choice each morning as well as pancakes and breads, meat, cheese and cereals. All eaten outside over looking the pool. The staff were very attentive but not intrusive. Special thanks go to Cecelia on reception who looked after us and to Monica who made the best Poncha cocktails in Funchal (and I tasted quite a few whilst I was there so I know what I'm talking about!) You leave the hotel via the back gate and are in the Old Town instantly with all it's restaurants and bars. Walking along the harbour at night was a good way of working off all the gorgeous food. Within minutes of the cable car up to Monte, the bus station and the harbour this hotel has the best location. Congratulations to all the staff including Mr Dias Senior and Junior who gave us a warm welcome and departure. I recommend this hotel totally to anyone visiting Funchal and when we return we will definitely be staying here again.More

Brilliant hotel, made so by the owners and staff. Quite small and in a very quiet spot. Absolutely immaculate with beautiful gardens. The staff go out of their way, never experienced this level of helpfulness anywhereMore

Excellent hotel, charming and friendly

Like others we decided on this hotel having looked at Trip Advisor and we can't recommend the place enough. The location is ideal for the centre of Funchal, but tucked away in a secluded spot so when you get back after a tiring day doing whatever, you are instantly in a little oasis of peace. It's a small family run hotel and the staff are friendly and helpful. Mr Dias makes a point of welcoming every guest on arrival and his attitude is reflected in the rest of the hotel staff - with a special mention for the charming Luisa! Only minor minus point is no wi fi yet in the rooms, although it's available down in the bar / pool area. You come and go via a private twitten planted with vines and prettily illuminated at night, which takes you into the old town and half a minutes walk from the restaurants and bars. We're planning to come back to Madiera soon, and when we do, we know this is where we will be staying!More
