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

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our trip to Madeira, so we didn’t care that it was a little isolated from Funchal and the closeness to the airport was great for us. Since we were there in low season, occupancy was very low and it was really too cold for swimming. Still, the hotel itself was... More

We only had one short night at this hotel but the room was excellent and the service was exceptional. Our breakfast was very enjoyable and we would like to come back when the weather is warmer to swim in the seaside pools.

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

Another lovely holiday in Madeira at the Albatroz, this time with my granddaughters. There was so much space for them to play and they loved the jacuzzi and the pool. 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
