"When relaxation is all you want"
Could not have asked for anything better, having studied hotels in Funchal we couldn't find what we were looking for which was somewhere a little different from the norm, then we found Albatroz Beach & Yacht Club, having looked at reviews we booked a week, it was only after booking that I looked at the location on a map of Madeira & thought I'd made a mistake, next to the airport, we needn't have worried as apart from the odd lorry passing on the main road we could have been in the hills, at times the silence was deafening. On arrival we were met by Gonzales who insisted on carrying our bags to our room, he showed us everything we needed to know, Costa was there on other days who was always keen to answer questions and just chat with us about anything, Carol was great as were Francisco, Madalene & all other staff, nothing was too much trouble, ask and it was answered. The view was amazing & on day 2 we were treated to the most spectacular scene, a few hundred meters out to sea we saw whales & dolphins passing, the hotel is literally next to the sea. At times we were the only couple in the hotel grounds so it was almost like a private members club, we were in room 17 on the ground floor & every room has a sea view. The food was yummy, buffet breakfast a fantastic start to the day. Would we return? MOST DEFINITELY. Thank you all at the Albatroz Beach & Yacht Club.
