We are never disappointed with the Cliff Bay. As soon as you walk in to the lobby, you feel at peace and relaxed. Our focus on this occasion was the annual Flower Festival and before we had ventured into the town, we were stunned by the beautiful flower and plant arrangements in the hotel. They then made their own flower carpet which took about 5 hours to arrange.
Throughout our stay, the staff were always so friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to make amends when something did go wrong. We enjoyed the new spa, which has a very peaceful ambience. It was a shame that the new outdoor hot tub was out of order, but this was the manufacturers fault and nothing to do with the hotel. The food was as good as ever, and we enjoyed buffet meals in the Rose Garden as well as special meals in The Galle D'ora Michelin star restaurant. The rooms are good, with lovely views, and the hotel's position is just a comfortable 20mins walk to the town (longer coming back - uphill!!).
