5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Just returned from a second visit to this excellent hotel. The management is welcoming and the staff cheerful and efficient. Any small problems are dealt with promptly and efficiently. I particularly like the clean, elegant style of the lounge and the well-appointed bedrooms with their wonderful sea views. I definitely hope to make a third visit and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Just returned from our 2nd visit to this small friendly hotel. Very convenient location for walking, shopping and trying out local restaurants and bars if you want. The food we had at the hotel was well presented and cooked. The staff were always very friendly and efficient and the whole hotel was very clean warm and bright. views from most of the rooms are superb and am already thinking about next years visit. Local restaurant qb near the forum was particularly good and only a short walk.

We have just returned from our 4th visit where we spent Christmas and New Year.The hotel provided two Gala dinners which were excellent,and we watched the New Year firework display from the hotel terrace sipping champagne.Superb!!!
The hotel is small and very friendly with staff that make you feel very welcome and can't do enough for you.We had a lovely room with sea view,and enjoyed a really good selection of food when we ate in the hotel.There are shops and restaurants near the hotel,and regular buses which take you the few minute journey into Funchel.Like us there are many return guests,and we are looking forward to our next visit.

Have returned from another Christmas and New Year at the Regency Cliff. It was just like going home for the holiday! The staff welcomed us back like friends and everything was done for our comfort.Lovely room, lovely views, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast on the terrace in December in warm sun gives the day a good beginning and a relaxing well served dinner followed by coffee and a liqueur brings each day to a close. Meeting up with those who have stayed before makes you realise others feel as we do. We will be back in December.

Room Tip: Ask when you book for advice about sun and view. The staff are very helpful.

This hotel turned out to be in a very good location - especially if you like walking. There is a wonderful walkway all along the shore and you can walk into Funchal in about 3/4 an hour or you can walk to Camara do Lobos in about the same. Also, there is a major shopping centre very close and the bus is right outside the door, which takes you right into Funchal or other points beyond if you so desire. The staff were very nice but I would not eat dinner there as, even if the food is good (I didn't try it), the atmosphere isn't great and you would have more fun going to some of the restaurants nearby or into Funchal itself, which has a wonderful vibe at night. Breakfast was good - lots of choice and well presented. The other nice thing about this hotel is the terrace on the 5th floor, which serves as a dining area when the weather is good. Because it is on a cliff there is an unobstructed view of the water and it is a wonderful place to have a drink after you come back from walking everywhere.

Room Tip: Don't choose any rooms on the 1st floor as they open out on to the pool area and you will have p...

We spent 2 weeks here from new years eve on a B&B basis. We had the new years eve gala dinner and breakfast everyday and the food was very good with lots of choice. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful including lending me a jacket and tie for New years eve. The location is great although a little quite but we went into town most nights for dinner and drinks which is what we like doing. Although we did not use the pools I used the gym and although small was sufficient.WeI would certainly return when we go to Madeira and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice quiet friendly hotel in Madeira. The only negative I would point out is that they charge 15 Euros per week for a safe key.
