My wife and I have just returned from a 10 day stay at Albatroz Beach and Yacht Club. The intriguing name is interesting; It has no beach and there are no yachts, nor any harbour/jetty. Evidence of the sea-faring theme abound, however, in the decoration and hangings within the building.
We deliberately chose this hotel because we wanted somewhere quiet and NOT in the middle of town. We have found just what we hoped for.
I chose this hotel because I have had wonderful holidays staying in other Vila Galé hotels and this was no exception. The staff here are friendly, professional, helpful and are impressively accomplished in several languages. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them and I had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. My room was clean, comfy and well equipped, and had a good view of the sea (and the changing weather). The restaurant provided an excellent service and I thoroughly recommend the a la carte option in the evenings. I'm so glad I didn't miss the evening when typical Madeiran food was served, and traditional entertainment laid on.
Our stay in March was spent at this excellent hotel, staff were friendly and courteous ,food was of a very high standard and as we used the buffet rather than A La Carte there was always more than enough choice and quantity. We booked a 'side sea view studio' but were given a central studio with direct views over the pool and gardens of the sea, it comprised 3 rooms, a large comfortable lounge large bedroom and sizeable bathroom with a kitchen diner in the lounge area. The gardens require special note as they are so beautiful and well kept, the overall design of the hotel kept the buildings integrated with the gardens to give pleasant and unspoilt garden.We would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit Madiera.There is a bus stop 100 yards from the hotel where a 2.2euro ride to Funchal can be taken about every 45mins.

We liked this hotel as it is in a quiet spot, located on the cliffs in the village of Canico de Baixo, which is a short drive from the capital, Funchal. The hotel has a free bus going to Funchal 3 times a day, which was great, but the local buses also had a fairly regular timetable. Although it was February, it was warm enough to sit out on a sunbed on one of the many areas cut into the rocks. We were able to use the facilities of the hotel next door, which had an indoor pool and gym.The breakfast each morning was more than adequate, and the many options varied from day to day. The reception staff were very knowledgable about the island, and were able to book trips for you.
The hotel is nice, very basic, rooms are clean. Staff was really nice and helpful. Breakfast was a bit boring. The garden and the pools are beautiful with many flowers, plants and with sea view. The building itself is old and you can hear every single noise from the other rooms. Many restaurants, cafes and shops are around, easy to get to Funchal even on bus. We enjoyed to stay there.
We got off to a bad start as the taxi driver at the airport didn't have a clue where our hotel was and got hopelessly lost before asking some locals for directions, and charging us the full amount for his mistake! The hotel more than made up for it though... the location is pleasantly tucked away in the verdant, leafy hills of Santo da Sara a small quiet village a few Kilometres away from Funchal. Our room was one of four in an out building just a few yards up the hill from the main hotel and restaurant. The room was basic but clean and comfortable, with great views of the mountains in front. Staff were more than helpful and were forthcoming in giving travel advice and directions as well as general hotel hospitality. Restaurant seemed a bit pricey (evening meal) but the food was very good. I would definitely recommend this as a quiet holiday stay.
A popular resort area, Caniço is on the southeastern coast of Madeira, a short drive from the capital city of Funchal. The clear waters of nearby Garajau Marine Park attract scuba divers, who are likely to see Atlantic manta rays and large fish species such as groupers. Several top-ranked golf courses are also within easy reach.
