Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Stayed here for 9 nights 7th October 2012 in room 302, Nice little room with comfy bed and pillars, lovely balcony with a fantastic sea view. very peaceful with lots of finishing touches ie, sweets, beach towels, tea and biscuits, sun beds on the lovely roof terrace, home made cakes every afternoon, free use of parasols for beach use, free use of wifi and computer, close to bars and restarants only 400 mtrs for the wonderful Old Town. Very friendly staff couldn't do enough to help, This is not a hotel but a faultless b&b. No mod cons but home comports more than compensate for this, Will definatly return

Room Tip: 3rd floor has 2 sea view rooms

The Dianamar is away from the hustle and bustle of Albufeira but is still onlya 5 minute walk to the centre. It is also close to the lift down to the beach. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room had a balcony overlooking the sea and was comfortable and had all we needed. The self service breakfasts were excellent and very varied, catering for all nationalities and tastes. The afternoon tea and cake were an added bonus included in the price. We would definitely stay there again if we went back to Albufeira.

Room Tip: Only the two top bedrooms have a sea view so when booking you need to request a sea view.

We have just come back from a week's stay with Eva, Mats and staff and can do nothing but praise this wonderful little gem. We had actually called in to look around Dianamar whilst we were in Albufeira in April and fell in love with it, so knew exactly what to expect on arrival. Having said that, Dianamar exceeded our expectations in every way. All the little extras they provide make such a difference. As we intended to 'chill out' during this holiday the roof terrace was superb. We will definitely be booking again!

Best budget hotel we have ever been, and we have seen really many in my travels for work and leisure. Very quite and small, excellent organization and very good breakfast buffet. The afternoon coffee/tea + homemade cake is included and a welcome treat. Unfortunately the bathroom has no ventilation. Check for air-conditioning, if traveling in summer.

Room Tip: Better view on upper floor, the two facing the ocean are preferable.

This is a family run Hotel, which has a safe and excellent environment. The breakfast is a buffet style with lots of varriety to choose from. There is a safe in the room. Free Wireless Internet from the reception area, Free beach accessories, Eva and Matts are lovely, and friendly people which makes you feel welcoming.

This bed and breakfast is close to the beach, in a beautiful location. There is life at night and lots restaurants is close by.

We had a wonderful time and recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Excellent value for Service and location

Well done Mats,Eva and all your wonderful girls.
A lovely place to stay.Absolutely spotless.
We stayed in a room on the first floor at the front of the hotel for the first 2 nights but found this a little noisy as its just above the busy street.
However for an extra 5 euros a night we were able to swap to the 3rd floor with the most amazing sea views you could wish for.
With all kinds of watersports to watch from the balcony and boats coming and going on their daily trips.
The home made cake and tea or coffee in the afternoons was a nice touch with lovely China place settings and a beautiful little court yard to sit and relax in.
The Iguana Cafe and the Daimler bar on the same street were both great stop off points for a night cap on the way back of an evening.
I would definately recommend this B&B by the sea!

Room Tip: 301 or 302 for Sea views.
