If I had not seen earlier reviews I would have never booked this hotel due to the proximity to the airport - that would have been a big mistake. Location is great, trust the reviews - you really can't hear the airport but you can see planes on approach flying over the sea. What makes this hotel are the staff.... More

We only stayed one night but were impressed with this hotel which surprisingly only has 15 rooms. We arrived early and they prepared the room for us super fast. Room was large with lovely views over the sea. We didn't get round to using the pools but 2 were located by the sea and looked fun. Had an excellent dinner... More

We stayed at Albatroz hotel in October 2014 with two children. The weather was excellent. I'll try to write a balanced review. The pros. 1. Rooms are Relais & Chateaux standard (honestly - and we have stayed in quite a few). 2. Service and staff are excellent, both at reception (especially Costa) and in the restaurant (sidonio). Transfers, special requests... More

We visited this wonderful hotel in October with 2 young children. We were very lucky that the sun shone for us all week. It is a small hotel, about 20 rooms. Located just in front of the airport. You notice the occasional plane start on the runway if you are outside but they do not fly over the hotel and... More

They saw whales and a sea lion and Granny enjoyed the calm and tranquility and listening to the increasing number of birds singing.it was very hot (yes at the end... More

Before I even arrived something happened to make me love the Albatroz prior to ever being there. On my last trip in making several reservations I made a mistake and booked one night for September 5 instead of October 5. On September 5 I answered a call on my cell and it was a lovely lady from the Albatroz inquiring... More

After a two week stay on the island we decided to book The Albatroz to relax for the final three days as it was near the airport and we didn't want to drive any more. From the moment we arrived the staff were exceptional in every way. The check in was friendly and very helpful, we were allocated a beautiful... More

We have stayed in Santa Cruz many times and have always promised ourselves we would like to take a look at albatroz just to see if it lived up to the reviews. Firstly have to say the views are spectacular ,the rooms looked great and we were made to feel very welcome. It was extremely peaceful despite being so close... More
