A lovely friendly hotel offering B&B plus afternoon Tea. Very clean, staff were lovely, including the Swedish students who visit each summer as part of their studies. Very good breakfast. The rooftop terrace offers wonderful views out to sea and is ideal for some quiet sunbathing. Few minutes walk to the lift down to the beautiful sandy beach or a...

Well run B&B and with an unbelievable location. Nice touch of giving us a bottle of wine in our room. Just a short walk to the beach and restaurants; parking on street is easy. Wonderful views on the rooftop terrace. Friendly staff. Bathroom a little small but doable.

Stayed here early sept. When we booked we were told it would be 2 nights in one room then we would have to move to another room for the next 5 nights. Which we accepted...how difficult could it be? As we unpacked one of the drawers was full of fluff and dust. Therefore it was unusable but we let it...

We have stayed at this place on many occasions. It is the perfect B & B for a short break. Always very clean throughout. The staff are very welcoming, attentive and helpful. They offer a self service continental breakfast. The best feature is the rooftop terrace where views of Albufeira's famous Fisherman's Beach and beyond to Vilamoura can be seen....

Lovely place almost on the beach - just 1 min away. Lovely small B&B and it felt like coming home to someone. Breakfast had almost everything I wanted in the morning, and the afternoon tea with homemade cakes, superb. Being able to borrow sun chairs, umbrellas and towels made my suitcase less heavy. Catharina and her lovely Swedish staff made...

We stayed in albufeira for a couple of days at the end of our holiday in Portugal. Whilst I wouldn't recommend albufeira as a destination, this place was a lovely sanctuary away from the noise and busy-ness of the area. The Swedish owners have lovely attention to detail, are really friendly and the breakfast is amazing! Also cake and tea...

Beautifully treated by the Dianamar staff. Provided beach towels umbrellas, beach chairs and a cooler, all of which we used one day. Nice, not to have to pack these. Breakfast was adequate and good. Room was decorated nicely in a Swedish theme. Beds are getting a little old I think. Great place for the price and would definitely recommend for...

We stayed for a week at the end of August after first discovering this great B & B over 10 years ago on a previous visit. What makes this a fabulous place is the people who run it and their staff.
