    We liked everything about this hotel. The setting is splendid with great views. The gardens are colourful and well kept. The room was spacious, extremely comfortable and very well serviced. The staff were very engaging and genuinely caring. The pool area was spotless and the salt water pool excellent for a swim. The breakfast buffet in the Rose Garden was exceptional especially the fresh fruit (including local varieties) and the freshly made omelettes as well as the warm pastel de nata. The changing evening buffet in the Rose Garden was also good with high quality produce well cooked. The starters and patisserie were particularly classy. Finally in the prevailing climate of worries about the pandemic, standards of hygiene were extremely high.

    Nothing, all was good.

    We traveled in early March for our honeymoon and had a fantastic two night stay. We booked a superior room with sea view but got upgraded to a superior room with Bay view, which had a gorgeous balcony from where you could see Funchal, the ocean and the sunrise (if you’re an early riser). The bed was very comfortable. The staff is great. We enjoyed eating breakfast at Gallo d’oro, especially the service and nice views (food was also good but not as memorable as the pleasant surroundings). It was amazing to sit by the pool over the cliffs with a view over the ocean and Funchal while lying in our sun-beds. The location and the views is quite something special. We were happy with the quality of the restaurants in the nearby area.

    The hotel is located in a crowded tourist place with busy roads (not fun to walk around). It’s peaceful while you’re within hotel facilities but as soon as you walk out of the hotel we grab lunch or dinner the relaxing glow of the hotel fades away. As young adults who are comfortable arranging our own transport (car rental), we feel we got more value for our money staying at another place outside Funchal later in our trip. If you are looking for adventures you may prefer to stay at another place. For our honeymoon trip and with our available budget, staying two nights at the Cliff Bay Hotel was just perfect.

About

Overview

The Atlantic Ocean stretches as far as the eye can see at the foot of The Cliff Bay. Perched on the top of a natural promontory, the hotel is surrounded by gardens - with innumerable secluded corners and centenary palm trees extending to the very edge of the cliff face. The panorama is completed by a magnificent view over the bay of Funchal to the east of the hotel. This 5 star hotel, one of PortoBay Hotels premium resorts, assures that every single little detail has been carefully conceived to present genuine peace, well-being and elegance. In the hotels sea access area one can combine the Atlantic Ocean breeze with the spell-binding views when choosing the new pontoons and solariums. The most influential restaurant guide in the world, the Michelin Guide, has awarded the Il Gallo d'Oro, The Cliff Bay's gourmet restaurant, run by Chef Benot Sinthon, with 2 Stars.
