This was our first visit to Madeira and we chose the Hotel Albatross because of its geological location and proximity to the airport. On arrival we were upgraded from a Superior double to a suite(previously frequented by Cristiano Ronaldo we were informed). The quality of the decor, and the facilities were excellent (in particular the wifi which was faster and... More

Stayed at the Albatroz for 5 days, from the moment the Hotel picked us up at the Airport the service was that of a five star Hotel. Check-in was quick and the room had everything we required and more including an excellent view. Breakfast was very good as was Lunch the days we ate but for us the evening meals... More

I have been going to the Albatroz every year since 2009. I have never been disappointed. It feels like home away from home.The staff are extremely friendly and go the extra mile. Although it is close to the airport, you don't hear the planes. All rooms have magnificent sea views. The Breakfast is extensive and delicious. I will be back... More

We often travel to Porto Santo island for holidays and as direct flights are not available in March. we decided to stay overnight on the way at Albatroz. We think that we experienced olde worlde (colonial style) service and quality at this remarkable hotel. We walked there in 10 minutes from Madeira Airport with our pull-along baggage and were met...

I stay at a lot of hotels, and the Albatroz is simply one of the best I have every stayed at. It is quite a walk form Santa Cruz, but (although Santa Cruz is lovely), why leave? You hear the bird and the ocean and nothign else and it is just heaven. Bowl of fruit in the room, wonderful food... More

Ok this has taken me a long time to write as it is a complex review. First and full-most the service is unbelievable from the personalised taxi service from the airport, to every staff member going to the extreme to keep us happy via your any request. We were upgraded to the suite which was absolutely amazing and that made... More

Nautical themed hotel located near the airport where we spent only one night before departing from Madeira. Airport transfer was arranged by the hotel. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly! Great service at breakfast with a good choice of dishes. All freshly and nicely cooked. We would love to come back to this place in order to experience all... More

Just back from a week's winter sun. Albatroz Beach and Yacht Club was very quiet with low occupancy. Situated ten minutes from the airport meant great transfers and we never heard another plane until our departure. Located in beautiful gardens, all rooms have great sea views towards the 'Deserted Isles' and we never tired of changing open sky outlook. The... More

We stayed here for a week in January. This was our 1st visit to Madeira and we were looking for some winter warmth & sunshine and ended up with so much more. The hotel is a very tranquil place this time of year with beautiful panoramic views of the sea and coastline. Amazingly,the proximity of the airport had minimal impact,... More

We stayed here for nine days over Xmas and New Year and it was perfect. Location is on the cliff by the sea, near the airport but no noise pollution at all indoors and the sight of the planes landing is amazing. Even on the balcony it was no problem at all. We had a suite which was beautiful with... More
