We have just returned from a fortnights holiday at the Cliff Bay and we were delighted with our stay. How can anyone fault this hotel, the location gives you the option of either walking to the new promenade or into Funchal and the marina. The hotel itself is clean and spacious, as were the pool areas. A surfeit of sunbeds and parasols and plenty of space so that you were never cramped. We had a delightful seaview room and also a garden view overlooking the terrace. The two double beds were exceptional quality and we also had tea & coffee making facilities in the room.Everything on the buffet you could think of and more. The buffet was always full and there was a good selection of fresh fruits, cereals, breads, jams, cheese, smoked salmon plus all the hot food and a cooking staition for making your eggs the way you like them!!! I cannot comment on the hotel restaurants, as we always chose to eat out in the local restaurants, but they looked very nice.
We had a few dodgy taxi rides, but that apart it was once again a thouroughly good holiday.
