              A good combination of elegance, charm and service contrasting well with business hotels

              Would prefer a no smoking policy

            • Couple

              Madeira is beautiful city and hotel make you feel like you are at best place in world, aw some place

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              The location and wonderful views (including a picture-postcard view of the famous Reid's Palace). The tranquillity of the place and the perfect sound-proofness of the rooms. The size and decoration of the room and bathroom. The breakfast - a great selection of food and drinks, to enjoy on the terrace surrounded by beautiful flowers. The spa and the staff working in it. The gym is modestly equipped, but has unbeatable views - I have rarely exercised looking straight at the ocean. And we had the privilege to listen to an unforgettable guitar duet in the bar on one of the evenings. I could go on...

              The Spa treatments were wonderful - Marina was just lovely. The staff were amazing and I loved the Breakfast so much variety! It was my birthday and when my friend and I got back to our room there was a wonderful chocolate cake there it was fantastic and such a fabulous surprise. Thanks to all the Staff at Cliff Bay I would definately return and recommend to all my friends. They make you all feel special like your the only one there!!!!!

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              hotel was very efficiently run and not intrusive

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              --Relaxed athmosphere, comfort and good location. Also a very good restaurant inhouse.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              The friendlyness of the staff. The flower decorations and the excellent state of the Public rooms

              I felt the menu at the cactus bar and the lower swimming pool was a little limited if you needed to use it often.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              The location was excellent - a 25 minute stroll into the centre of Funchal and right on the water's edge. And we were given a free upgrade to a full sea view room - which was more like a junior suite in any case.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              The presentation of everything,beautifully clean and helpful staff

              Superb breakfast, absolute feast. Beds and pillows exceptional. Brilliant staff. Wonderful surroundings

              Themed evenings did not always appeal.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              we had a very nice sea-view, and shall return. Nice indoor pool when the weather was not so good

            • Single
              8.2

              Great large room with a good ocean view. Used the pool and gym facilities every day. Good breakfasts.

              Drinks & Food at the Cliff Bay were expensive, however there are many good quality and cheaper places to eat and drink close by (try Frangos around the corner and have the piri piri chicken and tomato salad).

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Size and layout, location of room.

              Was turned away from restaurant for breakfast, very brusquely and without any assistance as to where I should go. When I asked another member of staff for directions, he pointed me back to the restaurant I had just been ejected from. There then followed an altercation in Portugese with me finally, and with a lack of good grace, being seated in what I late learned was the "VIP" restaurant. I was assured by the second member of staff that the package I had paid for entitled me to eat in that restaurant. I was somewhat surprised to find later that my partner, who breakfasted before me, had also been turned away from this restaurant and had eaten elsewhere. If you are going to be a 4\5 star hotel, then you should provide 4\5 star service.

              great hotel. Perfect location, fantastic meal, helpful staff

            • Family with children
              7.4

              Comfort and the quality of the service.

              I think the decor of the hotel is old fashion. Need a revamp on this.
