This hotel is a small hotel (approx. 18 rooms) so do NOT expect the splendour of a 5-star Grand hotel!!! This hotel is rather one of those small & cozy places, where the athmosphere is familiar with the staff and the other guests staying more then one night. Due to it's proximity to the Airport (you can walk across or... More

We returned to the Albatroz for a family holiday during October half term. It was just as wonderful as we remembered from before. We stayed in the suite on the first floor with wonderful views out to the Atlantic. The room was perfect, 2 large rooms separated by a double door with 2 large bathrooms - fantastic for a young...

We are return visitors to Albatroz, as we had a wonderful family holiday last time. Once again we were not disappointed. Immaculate setting, superb staff, excellent food, we were even lucky with the weather (sunbathing in shorts in October). We stayed in one of the suites which worked perfectly with a two and a five year old. You can draw... More

Easy axcess to Santa Cruz but not much there som ended up with a charming local bus drive into Funchal. 40 minutes of touring from the airport. Not very freequent and always a few minutes late, but worth the trip to dine in Funchal. YES, you can ofcourse hear the planes but not too many a day, and none at... More

We immensely enjoyed our stay at the Albatroz; very friendly and professional staff and service; quite rooms; great ocean views. The hotel has a cozy, club-like ambience. Breakfast was excellent - suprb food and excellent service. The hotel features 3 pools, 2 of which are seaside. Can highly recommend this hotel!

This would certainly have been a 5 star review but for one overarching annoyance. The hotel saw fit to carry out extensive refurbishments during our stay - with all the noise and irritation that come with it. This meant you couldn't really relax much during the day either in your room or by either of the pools. That aside everything... More

We booked in for one night at the beginning of our stay as we couldn't get into our hotel in Funchal till the day after we arrived. How we wish we had stayed longer. Lovely big room and bathroom with terrace that made you feel you were on board a ship. Staff delightful, and courtesy minibus from airport, which, though... More

We went to this hotel for a week of relaxation. From the moment we were picked up from the airport to being dropped off for our flight home we were thoroughly looked after by the staff and manager of the hotel. The reception team made arrangements for car hire & excursions and were always on hand for advice on where... More

we booked this hotel for 7 days as we rented a car to tour the island. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We did get a fruit basket on arrival, and had new bottles of water everyday in the room. The seawater pool is just perfect. The breakfast is really good and fresh, the sausages are to die for....

Booked last minute without really researching location etc but we were delighted at everything. We were picked up at the airport which is 5 minutes away but you really don't hear the noise of the planes. We used local buses which were cheap and convenient for the linear walks on the levadas. The setting is great. Perched on a cliff... More
