We can only confirm the other reviews: this is an excellent 5* hotel.
We stayed at the Cliff Bay for 7 days in December 2008. Although we had booked no sea view room, upon arrival we were designated a seaview room which we enjoyed very much. The view was great, the location of the hotel is very good.
We booked breakfast basis and took vouchers in the hotel for diner at Il Gallo d'Oro.
Great variety of choices at the breakfast buffet.
Il Gallo d'Oro is a very good restaurant with friendly staff. Service at the Blue Lagoon restaurant near the swimming pool was good, but not excellent: we had to wait a bit too long and staff was not that professional and helpful as in the Rose Garden restaurant.
There are also good restaurants in Funchal to have lunch; the Guide Michelin recommends some nice ones which are not too expensive.
Good spa facilities, with professional massages.
Large rooms with nice marble bathrooms.
Overall: very good hotel, with friendly staff. No children when we stayed there, so quiet hotel, well-mannered guests.
We will certainly return to the Cliff Bay.
Madeira is a very nice island with ideal climate: not cold in winter and not too hot in summer. Moreover, other type of tourists than at costa's in Spain etc.
