I stayed here for a week with my 7 year old son. I was slightly anxious that the hotel was going to be too quiet and too isolated for a single parent with a young kid, but the reviews were so outstanding, I decided to risk it. I've since recommended to a LOT of people. Highlights include: absolutely stunning views, so much peace and space (we were regularly the only people in any given pool), all the staff know you by name and they were super flexible with my son, making him meals for dinner that weren't on the menu (which was probably too sophisticated for a 7 year old!). They also helped us plan day trips, including an unreal dolphin watching trip (we managed to get in the ocean with them) and a private island tour. We really felt in safe hands. Possibly the only small negative was that I had inadvertently booked a room in the "house" next to the hotel, which was lovely and really spacious, but it didn't have a balcony - I'd understood all the rooms had one. This meant that I had nowhere to go when my son was sleeping. They tried to check if we could move but the hotel was fully booked.

This is an awesome hotel! Situated on top of a cliff, this hotel offers amazing views. Almost every aspect of this hotel is just fantastic. The restaurant offered a lovely selection of meals. And best of all, the service and friendliness is something we can never forget. We swam almost every day in the sea and loved watching the planes land at Funchal airport. We want to thank Fabricio, Anna Mario, Sidoneo, Helder, Francisco at the restaurant (sadly I can’t remember the names of the others!) and everyone at the Front Desk were amazing. Literally everyone at the hotel made our stay truly memorable. Thank you so much. Not a negative, one thing to bear in mind is that the hotel is situated around 20 – 30 mins away from Funchal and a taxi to the capital can cost around 30 Euros one way. But if you would rather prefer to chill and relax – just stay in the hotel and enjoy the relaxation!! The hotel takes very good care of you!

I couldn't recommend Albatroz any more. The location is beautiful, really awe-inspiring, and the hotel team are so lovely. Even though the hotel was technically at capacity, it still felt serene and not busy at all. Thank you for an amazing stay!

With Madeira being on the UK's green list for international travel, we thought we would visit. I spent a lot of time choosing a hotel and this hotel was everything we had hoped for...plus more. The photos simply do not do this place justice. We were picked up by the wonderful Carolina. We left the airport, I simply called the hotel and she was with us within 4 minutes. Carolina works at the reception and couldn't have done more for us, nothing was too much trouble and she has an extremely kind and genuine aura about her. The hotel management are very lucky to have her on board. Carolina also dropped us back to the airport at the end of the stay. After a long day of travel, having the hotel within 4 minutes of the airport is a complete touch, we were very grateful! The hotel grounds are kept so well, a lot of love and thought has clearly gone into the hundreds of plants there. Soon after check-in, our bags were whisked away to our rooms. We stayed in the manor house. It's an older building with plenty of character. The rooms are extremely modest but had everything you needed, the best part being the large, comfy beds. Dinner time at the Albatroz was of the highest quality. To start with, the food was completely premium, the large range of choice on the menu and the freshness of each dish will never leave our minds! But the best part of it all was the waiters. Both Sidomio and Fabricio boasted a wealth of experience between them. They are extremely charming and professional gentleman who clearly knew the product they were working with. It was as if we were dining at the Ritz every night and we couldn't thank them more for making our stay so special. We really hope this praise gets passed down to them through management and we hope they are appreciated by the powers that be as they deserve. We'd also like to thanks Francisco who worked during the day for being so helpful, for going above and beyond and not letting us lift a finger! The hotel are blessed with incredible staff who really did make our holiday incredible. All spoke incredible, fluent English which put us to shame! The hotel is SO quiet and there is no entertainment in the evenings, which for us, a couple looking for nothing but relaxation, peace, quiet and no stress for a week was perfect. We completely adored the sea pool, it was absolute LUXURY and gave off Santorini vibes. We spent every single day down there... paradise. We miss the hotel and Madeira so much, we are thankful that the pandemic led us to visit somewhere we wouldn't immediately think of going.

Although the hotel is very close to the airport, literally 200m or so (as the crow flies) the hotel is very quiet. The rooms are very clean (we had room 25 with an elevated view of the sea). As others have said the staff are very helpful and attentive from the desk staff through to the waiters in the bar/restaurant. Our stay was during the Euro's football tournament and following my request the hotel manager Diogo who was attentive throughout our stay arranged for the tv to be moved from the library bar to an area set aside in the restaurant which was great. We will come back to this hotel later in the year.
