We stayed twice, once on arrival before touring the island and again for four nights before leaving. I see some people got offered a free upgrade on arrival. It was booked via Booking dot com and they were keen to sign me up before arrival to spend more on an upgrade to a superior room, well the room we got... More

Receptionist came out to car to welcome us and help us with the luggage on arrival and then parked the hire car-different class! We only needed to ask about a local attraction or where to eat In Funchal or the type of food we were seeking and they always came up trumps with there clear and honest suggestions. Booked the...

This former quinta belonging to a doctor became a family owned hotel. It is located close to the airport, but this didn't bother. Nights were silent even with open window. All rooms were seaside. Room and terrace at 16 m above sealevel. Our room was large and clean, with bottled still water and fresh fruit for free. There is a... More

My husband and I stayed here for two weeks at the end of April 2015. It was the time of the Flower Festival and we had difficulty booking our golf holiday through our normal golf companies. Whilst searching for a hotel I kept returning to the Albatroz web site as it looked so attractive and ended up booking it. The... More

Do not be put off by close proximity to airport. I am noise sensitive and found the location no problem whatsoever. Staff excellent. Room spacious. View stunning. If you want to unwind and relax this is the place for you.

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
