A walking vacation on Madeira combined with good Portugese cooking was on our minds. We booked a suite in the Regencu Cliff and hoped for the best. Well, we were disappointed.
The suite 204 has a balcony but no sunshine at all.
The internal pool is small and cold - the external pool is even smaller and much colder (I am from the Netherlands and used to cold water, but this was even for me too cold)
The wifi does not work in your room - only in the lobby
The breakfast is under par and even on an island with so much fruit not a banana is to be found, let alone other fresh fruit. Everything comes from a can or a package, even the eggs.
Personnel are distant and not helpful - on the hotel parking the places are blocked with a chain for the manager - not for the hotel guest (and if you park there your car is chained as well..)
We had dinner once since we were too tired to go out again. Huge mistake, so we found nice fresh food in the neighborhood.
So all in all, look elsewhere if you decide for Funchal; there are better places to be found with more personality and soul than this one.
