We stayed here over night as our flights to London were cancelled due to high winds. The hotel is spotless and the staff are fantastic. Breakfast was simple but very good. Eggs made to perfection. Close to the airport and free shuttle service.
Thank you for looking after us during a stressful time.
Beautiful quiet location, next to the sea.

A really lovely, clean, cosy, welcoming Hotel. We loved the clean room and the lovely view of the sea from the balcony. So peaceful. We forgot that we were right by the airport because it was so quiet. Loved seeing Fernando each morning sitting at Reception,always with the biggest smile. He went that extra mile to make our stay perfect. The restaurant was fabulous and so was the room service. Quite frankly we couldn't fault the place and we will be returning again next year for a nice chill holiday.

Stayed for ten days. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Hotel was minutes from airport but surprisingly you are unaware of the close proximity when in the hotel. The pools and pool area were kept immaculately. Restaurant food was good we ate in three times and all the meals were fresh and tasty. We walked into nearby town most lunchtimes and evening,pleasant walk along the beach path which is well lit and safe at night(.Avoid the walk along the main road noisy and dusty,path is not marked so walk out of hotel turn right head along road at first lay by head down the slope it's a bit strange but you end up on path under the road) Had a really fun trip around island on a motor bike with side car our driver Marco was happy to take us wherever we wanted much better than other types of tours pricier but you get to see more. I would say this hotel is more for adults not so easy to occupy small children here. The sea water pool is great but it is a long way down ,I think there should be a way of contacting reception just for safety sake.
Our annual trip - always fantastic

We visited the Albatroz as a family during May half term as a last minute break. As always we had a fantastic stay. We are repeat visitors to this wonderful hotel. The friendly greeting at the airport and the wonderful service throughout the entire stay make this hotel very special. The environment is beautiful and the complex spotless. We had lovely weather and were able to use the pools (not the warmest but that didn't worry the children).
We ate very well as always, breakfast is lovely with the fresh fruit and eggs cooked to order. The chefs will even prepare rather strange combinations of food as requested by small children and make it look and taste beautiful.
We walked to the park in Santa Cruz each day, it is a really pleasant little town with an attractive square.
I would recommend hiring a car through the hotel as the island of Madeira is beautiful. The walks in the mountains are lovely and there are walks suitable for all ages and abilities.
We love it so much here that we are returning in the summer.
A great place

The staff are outstanding; welcoming, friendly, extremely helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Lovely rooms, fantastic breakfasts and delicious evening menu. The pools were great (the top pool could benefit from being heated) Pleasant lounge to sit and chat or play games in the evening if you didn't want to venture out. Would definitely use again if/when we return to Madeira.
