We had a week in the Albergaria Dias in Oct. 2013. We booked directly with the hotel (and took flights with Monarch). The hotel arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport (30 euros). We landed at 10.15am, and had wondered whether our room would be ready, but it was, and after we had been treated to a complimentary welcome drink we were able to unpack. Our room was on the 2nd floor with views of the sea. It was cool, comfortable and well-equipped. The hotel is ideally placed in the Old Town: the bus stops and cable car, and a great choice of restaurants, are within 10 minutes walk, and the Cathedral is 10 minutes further on. The swimming pool offers a pleasant, sheltered place to take a cooling dip. Breakfast is buffet-style with a good range of cold dishes, and hot options including sliced chorizo and onion, bacon and egg. This is very much a family-run establishment; which permeates through to the staff who are extremely friendly and do all they can to help. I would not hesitate in recommending the Albergaria Dias.
