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.

Oasis of calm

Lovely hotel in the Old Town. Pretty garden with sweet smelling jasmine along the little lane at the back of the hotel which leads to the restaurants. Beds very comfortable and all very clean. Loved the fresh fruit and homemade cake for breakfast. Not a difficult walk into town from here. Buses and cablecar very close by and convenient. Saw cruise ships from 2nd floor balcony, which is a suntrap in the afternoon. Cecilia in reception very pleasant and helpful.More

Madeira in the autumn

Wonderful break at Hotel Albergaria Dias in the old town. Some harassment from local restaurateurs but much more convenient for town than some of the larger hotels. East access to town and transport system. Whole trip recommended.More

Friendly, personal, intimate and great location.

This is a superb hotel and a welcome change from the dull and corporate accommodation often found in resorts. The welcome and farewells from the staff feel genuine and the service was excellant throughout our stay. The gardens and pool area are lovely and the interior is spotless. The breakfast choices are good, with the fresh fruit salad particularly popular and snacks and drinks available through the day are all reasonably priced. The location in the heart of the old town is much better than the souless hotel quarter, closer to all the facililties and great for an evening stroll and visits to local bars and restaurants. The only minor criticism is that you can hear the toilet activities of the neighbours at night which as most of the residents are in their twilight is a common occurrence, however its only an issue if you are a light sleeper!More

Small and very friendly !

We booked through Thomsons "Small & Friendly" brochure. Lovely stay, met on arrival by the owner and his reception staff. My wife who is diabetic, and wasn't feeling too good after the long journey was quickly helped on arrival. They couldn't have been nicer really. Everywhere is clean and tidy. Our room, on the third floor, was at the end of the building so the view from the balcony was partly spoiled by the rough scrubby land to the side. Not a big problem for us though as we are out and about most of the time. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice, something for everyone I would think. They serve snacks (fresh sardine sandwiches/toasties a favourite with us !) up until 4pm. Very easy to get to the many restaurants for your evening meal. A well run establishment.More

We spent two weeks at this hotel at the end of March and can highly recommend it. The staff were very friendly and knowledge and we are already planning another visit. The hotel was very spotless and our room was cleaned every day, it was located in an ideal situation in the old townMore
