We had a brilliant week at the Cliff Bay from July 27 to Aug 3 2012. From the moment we arrrived to when we left it was superb quality. Our room was on the fourth floor with a great view over the sea and the gardens of the hotel. The pool area and the restaurants were stunning and breakfast was fantastic from the ultra healthy to the full English whatever your taste. We used the gym and swam every day and the facilities were superb. Funchal is now a very smart sophisticated town with a new shopping mall as well as bars and eating places of great variety. We did two half day Levada walks of around 2-3 hours and 6KM that we arranged via the tour rep but the hotel could have also done this for us. I would recommend this as you get to see rural madeira in "action" and the views and scenary are amazing.
The service in the hotel was fantastic and the staff could not have worked harder for us. All in all this was a terrific holiday and we could not be more positive about our stay.
