After reading all the reviews I was very excited at the prospect of visiting "The Cliff Bay" in Maderia. We had booked a superior room with a sea view. Maybe next time we would only book a sea view as the only extras you recieve are unlimited soft drinks - pillow menu - and meals in the Gallio restaurant. Both my husband and myself enjoyed the Rose Garden much more than the Gallio. The staff were amazing at the Rose Garden especially Paula and Katya - wonderful. I must mention Bruno who will make an amazing hotel manager one day - keep hold of him Cliff Bay he is excellent!
The gardens are immaculate all over the hotel. The music during the evening was also superb.
We went on three excusions with Thomsons - don't both with the guilet which we picked up at the airport - not worth the money. The trip around the West side of the island was amazing well worth a visit. The other trip was on the cable car and the tabogganing - great fun. I also enjoyed going on the red bus to Cameria des Lobos - what a lovely place.
Yes this really is a first class hotel and we can't wait to return next year!
