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.

Wonderful family run hotel
Once again stayed in this small 35 room hotel, this time in one of the two rooms that have large balconies complete with sun beds and hot tum. You are always made very welcome and introduced to the staff as well as Mr Dias the owner. Tour and explanation of hotel facilities plus a welcome drink on arrival. Very good breakfast and snack lunches and Mr Dias's home made tomato juice and fruit salad are not to be missed. Can have a relaxing self service breakfast by the pool. Hotel does not serve dinner but it only a short walk to the Old Town's many bars and restaurants.More
Just a delight!
We stayed at the Albergaria Dias again for our holiday for two weeks. It remains a delight: a small hotel in the old town; Senhor Dias as charming as ever, still producing his own amazing fruit salads for breakfast; the rooms spotless; all the staff interested, friendly, helpful and ready to chat and advise - and we met Cecilia on the bus enjoying her own holiday! No more to be said other than for the fourth (or fifth?) time it was a great pleasure, and won't be the last.More
On arrival you are shown around and Mr Dias the owner comes to greet you, all the staff have so much pride in this hotel and it shows. Our thanks to Cecelia and Luisa on the front desk for directions and advice and always a warm friendly smile and greeting morning or evening. Breakfasts were wonderful and Mr Dias' fruit salad did not disappoint, amazing. Thanks to Rui and Monica for the laughs and the warm welcome each morning. All the best with the little one Monica hope all goes well, and keep dreaming Rui you never know Porto may surprise you one day!! Thank you all for my flowers, card and the wonderful happy birthday song. It was our first time in Funchal and Madeira, both were stunning and it was made all the better by this wonderful hotel in the heart of it all. More
Great hotel in a great location
Located in the heart of the old town this is a warm and friendly small family run hotel. All the staff are caring and helpful. The hotel is super clean. They serve a delicious breakfast which is the pride of the owner Mr Dias who is very welcoming and sociable. Very close to the sea front, cable car, bus station and many, many restaurants, bars and cafes. A delightful place to stay.More
