“First class in every way”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Just returned from Four nights at the Regency Cliff (wish it had been longer) What a fabulous place. I should not be writing this as everyone will now want to go and we will not get in next time. Seriously though if you like small intimate hotels with excellent service in the most beautiful location look no further. It is spectactular in every way and the front of house staff led by Graca Jardim are all excellent. We had the most wonderful time even though the weather could have been better. First class in every way

My Husband and I have just returned after a 3 week stay at the Madeira Regency Cliff.We cancelled a holiday we had already booked because we were so impressed by the reviews on Trip Advisor.We had a couple of disapointing holidays that were all inclusive and so decided to go for a smaller hotel and only for B and B.This was a good choice for the area has many restaurants and most are reasonably priced and in 3 weeks we did not have one bad meal.
We did email the hotel 2 weeks before arrival requesting a room on the 3 or 4th floors with plenty of sun and they replied very quickly and said they would do their best . When we arrived we were allocated room 305 which was perfect,we did find the bathroom a little small with not much room for toiletries etc.,but the room was perfect and the view was breathtaking.
We found breakfast was more than ample,although some morning the fresh fruit dishes almost empty or the baked beans were mostly sauce,but the breads and rolls etc were great.
The only downside was the first evening we returned to our room after dinner to find ants all over the dressing table and the coffee tray,they were even in the kettle!! we reported this next morning and they came and put down some powder,this did improve the problem but if we left any water in a saucer or cup they would be back,so we were careful to always check the kettle before using it. Also a bedside lightswitch was broken and it did take 2 days to get it fixed.Later we had 2 bulbs go in the bathroom but these were replaced very quickly.
We will certainly be returning hopefully next year but perhaps in the spring as the weather was rather unsettled.

Our first visit to Madeira, and on recommendation booked the Regency Cliff. No regrets.... a smaller but friendly hotel run to high standards. Spacious rooms with all the usual facilites and including decent sized balconies. Very friendly staff and very good food in the restaurant, breakfast was a pleasure taken out in the sun each morning. Relaxing by the small pool was a lovely way to "chill". I am not surprised that some guests return year after year.
Downside? - not much, but just watch out for drinks prices in the hotel that can be rather high.

Lovely 4 star small 50 room hotel, great location on sea cliff, all rooms face shore line and/or sea, away from any roads and traffic noise and have large balconies. Very well furnished and maintained, larger superior room had a great view of the city and the sea. Great hot and cold buffet breakfast with lots of choice and very prompt service. Hotel is on margin of main hotel strip slightly away from but close enough to the hustle and bustle and about 40 minutes walk into centre of Funchal. Number 1 and 2 buses that take you into Funchal stop just outside the door. Can't go wrong with this hotel unless you are looking for major entertainments and the glitz and glamour of the 5 star luxury hotels.

Room Tip: Rooms on floor level 1 are on same level as the outdoor swimming pool and may lack privacy. Receptio...

This was the first time that my wife and I had been to Madeira. We found that the Madeira Regency Cliff Hotel gave us an excellent introduction in that it is ideally situated for easy access to all local facilities. The variety and quality of the food was excellent, as was the room overlooking the sea. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. We would certainly choose this hotel again.

This was my 6th visit to this lovely hotel, small, friendly, good atmosphere, great location, with all the amenities I want for a perfect holiday. I travel alone but never feel alone at the Regency Cliff but rather part of the family. Food very good indeed, rooms clean and well looked after. I cannot imagine any huge hotel providing such friendly and caring service - and the views from every room are lovely - east to get the morning sun, south to have it all day. To sleep with windows open and hear the fishing boats go out in the middle of the night - absolutely superb. I am looking forward to my next visit and enjoying Madeira and its delights whilst based at the Madeira Regency Cliff Hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are of very high standard, some larger than others - state your preference.

My husband and I spent two weeks in this quiet 59 room hotel. It was our first trip to this lovely island. Without exception the staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Lovely breakfasts and dinners which we enjoyed on the terrace every day. The bedroom was very clean and spacious, with a balcony and a lovely view. The ‘cocktail evening’ every Tuesday with the Manager is a nice touch. If we decide to return to Madeira it will definitely be to this hotel which we have no hesitation in recommending.

Room Tip: I agree with other reviews that the best views are on floor 3 upwards.
