We will be back!

Comfort, spaciousness, kind and friendly staff, brilliant food, swimming pools gallore and a terrific spa. Don't miss the calm and views on the Captain's lounge. Ideal place for an aperitif. Out of seasin visit is ideal because there is plenty of room and it is quieter.

The perfect hotel!

Posted Apr 9, 2015
Pros: I think I said it all above - just first class.
Cons: Nothing!
Location: I would not recommend restaurants close by - go on recommendations on trip advisor.
My experience was a first at the Cliff Bay Hotel and it was just fantastic, the hotel ticks all the boxes. Service, facilities, staff and restaurants were first class but without charging over the top as most 5 star hotels do. They have got their customer service spot on and nothing is too much trouble. Without hesitation I would recommend this hotel

Excellent hotel with very attentive staff.

Posted Apr 5, 2015
Very pleasant stay at the Cliff Bay: very attentive and efficient staff. Great facilities and also close to Funchal. The regular shuttle service makes The journey easy if you don't fancy walking up the steep hill from town. excellent food in each restaurant, especiallying the Michelin Star Gallo d'Oro.

Cliff Bay Hotel

Posted Apr 3, 2015
Pros: Said it all above.
Cons: Said it all above.
Location: Lots of good restaurants within walking distance. Not worth taking a taxi into Funchal nowadays. New shops and cafes at the lido area west of hotel.
Still first class overall - breakfasts, buffet dinners, pools, accommodation. Did not use the "starred" restaurant because every time we looked at the menu it just did not inspire. Not the cost, just not exciting. Took our evening meals mainly at outside restaurants. Arranged our own private island taxi trip because the hotel did not use the firm who provided our airport transfers. Felt reception were just a bit "sniffy" about this aspect.
