This hotel is a dream, excellent location on a clifftop with breathtaking views and exceptional service. Though it is located very close to the airport and the motorway it`s very quiet and peaceful there. It takes just a few minutes to get here from the airport and it`s a 10 minute drive to Funchal. This tiny hotel offers you everything... More

Albatroz Beach and Yacht Club ... Is a strange mix, ... essentially an airport hotel. Only four hundred yards from the runway, but without aircraft noise ??? Purpose built in an old plantation, with mature garden, and sea water pools. Just fifteen rooms, the level of service is very good. Friendly, with just enough formality to make it feel five... More

Selected hotel based on its location near the airport and the prospect of an early flight. Amazingly quiet despite its location. The only sound heard from the rooms was that of the ocean. Rooms were large and thoughtfully laid out. Don't recall seeing another hotel bathroom with two sinks. WiFi in the room was fast and reliable, something which is... More

This is a great hotel very near the airport with it's own great grounds and access to the ocean. It is a ten minute walk to the airport, so easy to travel to other parts of the island from there. I took the bus to/from funchal and rented a car for just a day. Staff and other guests super friendly... More

Lovely spot, very secluded, not necessarily suited to the young. Excellent service, would give it a higher grading if gym was available. Wonderful service , but very very quiet. A car is required, nearest town is 10 mins away. No shuttle service either to the nearest town or to Funchal. Although very close to airport, no aircraft noise is noticeable.... More

We stayed nine nights at this hotel from 18 January. Despite being adjacent to the airport we had no problem from aircraft noise. The views from all the bedrooms are magnificent, with the Desertas islands appearing and disappearing on the horizon as the weather changed. The quality of the rooms is very high and the whole buildng has been carefully... More

It was my second visit to this marvelous hotel. The previous hotel staff was gone but new receptionists Laura and Carlos, plus manager Goncalo and the others are also great people. Biggest news: 6 weeks ago a big storm caused a lot of damage to Santa Cruz and also this hotel. They had to close the main pool down by... More

I stay in a lot of hotels for business and am generally left cold by the experience; this was for pleasure and it really was. Many hotels can have the bells and whistles that give them lots of stars, but too frequently they are following a formula. In the case of the Albatroz the setting and facities are excellent and...

As always an amazing thing happens as you go through the gates of this hotel off the main road. You cannot hear anything from the airport right next door it is good sport watching the plans in the bay but u never hear them. Life becomes magical just chill & read one of the many books found in the reading... More

We wandered by one afternoon whilst staying on the island - the view from the hotel was amazing and we decided to return for an evening meal. We were made most welcome and enjoyed our evening there. We would recommend the hotel, its location and its quality of service.
