The hotel is situated well, with wonderful views towards Funchal. The rooms are spotlessly clean and spacious. For two people the size was comfortable and it wAs well equipped. Upon asking, I was issued with a hair dryer and ironing board. The staff were friendly and helpful. They are clearly accustomed to dealing with older travellers and indeed the hotel is well suited to the over 55 category. The pool outside is quite small but well situated. Overall we were well satisfied with the quality of this accommodation and the tariff charged was very reasonable. The location in the main hotel district was average but views perhaps better than most hotels as the Regency Cliff is on an outcrop of land looking back to Funchal.
Breakfast is served in a light and spacious room with the option of sitting outside on the terrace. The selection was fine without being in any way memorable or delicious. However the dinners were a real disappointment. The ambience was really lacking, with bright lighting and overly formal service creating an awkward atmosphere. The food itself was very poor value, and the less said about it the better. For example, one night I ordered a pasta that was in no way fresh and included what I am sure were tinned mushrooms and cotton wool like prawns. While it may be convenient to eat in the hotel from time to time, you can do so much better for less money nearby.
