Hotel Albergaria Dias
Ranked #5 of 88 Hotels in Funchal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Owned and run by Mr Dias this hotel is fantastic. The staff are so friendly and so good at what they do it makes your stay an absolute delight. Located in Funchal old town. By leaving the hotel by the back door you arrive in the centre of the old town. The only problem we had was that we were only there for a week !!!

A wonderful holiday in a superb hotel. Everywhere was spotless, so clean. The staff are so helpful with knowledge of the island buses etc. Mr Dias is a lovely man and very proud of his hotel and staff, as he should be. Will be visiting again very soon. Do try some of Mrs Dias cakes amazing. Great location for restaurants,shops and cable car.

Room Tip: 3rd floor best views.

We chose this hotel in Funchal after reading all the reviews on Trip Adviser and were not disappointed. The hotel is located in the old town and accessed by a small private gated pathway covered by a grapevine. The hotel is a credit to Mr Dias and all his staff. We were met upon arrival by Mr Dias and some of his staff and then shown around the hotel and grounds. We were given a welcome drink whilst we waited for our room. The hotel is spotless and our room was cleaned daily. The breakfasts are wonderful especially the fruit cocktail made my Mr Dias himself. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from just a short walk from the hotel. We had a great two weeks at this hotel and are looking forward to returning again.

Room Tip: third floor rooms have a good sea view and all overlook the pool area. Try to book rooms between 301...

My partner and I chose this hotel because of the reviews and we were not disappointed. It is everything positive that other reviewers have already said. Mr Dias and his wonderful staff are excellent and make every effort to make your stay as pleaseant an experience as possible. Mr Dias is such a nice man and one afternoon arranged for a bunch of silver bananas to be delivered to all his guests' rooms. What a kind gesture. We will not forget our trip to Madeira and all the friendly people we met, both staff and guests.

Having found the Albergaria Dias many years ago there is no other hotel that we would ever stay in - in Funchal. Mr Dias and his staff are very proud of their hotel and rightly so. The excellent service that has been mentioned by others comes naturally and is a true reflection of the caring attitude within this hotel. We feel like returning friends. The location, as stated before, is perfect. Having walked through the garden to the Old Town for the restaurants we were amazed to find that this area had been regenerated since our previous visit and was even better than before. The artists have been busy painting all the front doors of people's homes and it has made it an even more vibrant and pleasant place to eat. Book the Albergaria Dias early to avoid disappointment!!!!

Room Tip: Third floor has views of harbour and you can see the cruise ships arrive and depart.

Previous reviews had convinced me that this was the hotel for us in Funchal. The location in the Old Town is wonderful, with so many excellent restaurants just a few minutes away. Mr Dias greets all guests personally and you feel at home immediately - the welcome drink is a very nice touch and sets the tone for the whole hotel experience. Breakfasts are quite amazing, with such a great selection of all you could wish for, and the quality is excellent. Did the fruit salad live up to its reputation - yes indeed!
All the staff were friendly and efficient and treated all guests as people and not just a room number. Although the hotel only offers bed and breakfast it is possible to have a light lunch and/or delicious cake with tea or coffee. The pool is not heated, but after a few minutes of acclimatisation we had a very refreshing swim. Towels are provided and the sunbeds are very comfortable. Although there was extensive work going on at the waterfront, which is not too far away, the hotel garden was an oasis of peace and quiet. Reading a book whilst lazing next to the wonderful bougainvillea and listening to birdsong was just perfect.

We had occasion to visit the 'hotel zone' to the west of the town (pick-ups for an excursion) and were so glad that we were not staying in the characterless canyon of high rise hotels.

A lovely week at a small family hotel, run by a caring owner and friendly staff. So many guests were repeat visitors, and we can understand why. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies, and ours was on the second floor with limited sea view. We were slightly...

Spent 2 weeks at this hotel in March 2014. Everything good you read is true. But I want to add I was taken to hospital (NOT fault of hotel!) and owners and staff were so caring and helpful. Senora Das sent food to me in hospital while her husband came to hospital to help translate what doctors were saying/doing to me. Staff were SO great to me when I got back to hotel. I cannot speak highly enough of their attitude.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have best views, but all overlook pool area and are quiet.
