2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
The Atlantic Ocean stretches as far as the eye can see at the foot of The Cliff Bay which is 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 left of the hotel.The most influential restaurant guide in the world, the Michelin Guide, has awarded a star to Il Gallo d'Oro, The Cliff Bay's gourmet restaurant run by Chef Benoît Sinthon. This is Madeira's first and only star

This was our first visit to Madeira and couldn't have picked a better hotel in terms of its location, facilities and staff. Our room overlooking the bay was spacious and well appointed. There was a choice of pools and had a fantastic massage in the spa. Breakfast in the garden was great and the meal at Il Gallo D'Oro was exceptional.(need to book in advance). Would definitely stay here again.

We had a 10 night break here in January. We were so impressed with the hotel. The staff were excellent and so attentive. The public areas spacious and beautifully maintained. The rooms were huge. We stayed in a standard room with a city/ sea view and it was stunning. We could see the lights of Funchal twinkling away at night. The hotel is ideally situated with stunning grounds and lots of space around the pool areas. It's a nice walk into Funchal taking around 30-40 minutes . A little hill on the way back so easy to bus or taxi if preferred. There are also plenty of bars and restaurants close by if you want to venture out. We ate in 4 of the restaurants and all were fine. We went to Il Gallo as a treat too. The weather wasnt great but that just gives us more reason to go back and see Cliff Bay again.
