The Cliff Bay, Funchal
A very fine hotel on a beautiful island
The hospitality we received at The Cliff Bay Hotel - and indeed this was reflected everywhere we went on the island - was exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed our short break there. We were so pleased with our choice of hotel, with our bay view room, and the location was just right too.

Very Good8.0
Leisurely 10day break
Allways a pleasant stay, pools and rest areas are top class. Our room was very nice but although we were on the edge of the sea, our view was restricted because of high wall on balcony. Plenty off places to eat out. Be carfull of the special offers if you have a discount card. My wife used the spa on a 10% discount special, but we could of used the premier card for a better deal. All in all a very pleased with the hotel and area.
Roger, gb10 night romance trip

Amazing hotel and staff were very attentive and friendly. Was one of our birthdays and they gave us a cake without even asking! Would definitely stay here again! Location and views were a true sight to see.
