Madeira Regency Cliff
Ranked #12 of 88 Hotels in Funchal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 4, 2013

This was our second visit. Our first was nine years ago and we cannot think why it took us so long to return, as it's a great base for a visit to Madeira. We love the location and the wonderful sea views; and the excellent local bus service gives easy access to the centre of Funchal and the rest of the island.
We were less than happy with the room allocated to us on arrival, but the staff could not have been more helpful in offering alternatives - we selected one which was particularly spacious, with a huge balcony, albeit with only morning sun. The friendliness and helpfulness of the reception staff is a special feature of the hotel - they provided us with all the bus timetable information we needed for our many island walks.
The breakfast was fine, although there was a tendency for popular dishes to go done, with a delay sometimes in re-stocking. We had dinner in the hotel only once during our fortnight's stay, and so cannot really comment about this, although the atmosphere seemed a little sedate. (This is probably a consequence of the hotel apparently targetting the "mature end" of the market - I am not sure it would be the best choice for families with children.)
The proximity of local shops, bars and restaurants is helpful; and I would advise people not to be put off by the appearance of O Almofariz directly opposite - great value!

We wanted a nice break away in January for a little sun and the regency served us beautifully. Helpful staff, a clean room, a lovely location and a friendly bar team made our stay great. The hotel is a taxi away from the old town or 30 min walk (we're in our thirties so we have a good pace) but that shouldn't put you off its only 10 euros.

Facilities were good. Happy hour was a bonus from 6-7. The pools are small and it's only got a steam room but they were helpful on recommending the spa at the vidamar down the road which is unmissable! 30e for a couple great value. You must try the salt water pool and its water streams. Trust me!

We would recommend going to the old town and in particular the vintage bar. Great atmosphere and a relief from the places that cater for the old crowd. Beef and wines is a good restaurant but its location isn't great.

All in I would say its a fab place to stay. The views from all the rooms are great with sea views. Breakfast is very good too - a good spread. We would come back.

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.
