“Fantastic and a perfect location”
Reviewed 28 July 2010

We wanted a quiet and peaceful hotel for couples and we got it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room had a fantastic sea view.
We were half board and the food was excellent with great service. There are 2 pools one outdoor which although small, was absolutely fine for a leisurely swim and one indoor one where there are glass windows along one wall looking out onto the area with loungers, that was very tranquil.
It is on the outskirts of Funchal but that is not a problem as getting into Funchal was incredibly easy, the hotel offers a free shuttle which takes about 10 minutes [often it was a taxi] there are also regular buses or the walk is very pleasant and takes around 40 mins to an hour depending on how often you meandre and stop to look at shops and the views!
This is not a hotel for children but perfect for adults who want peace and quiet. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely go back there if ever I return to Madeira.

This was our second visit to the hotel which in itself is good recommendation. The biggest attraction has to be that it's small (only 59 rooms) and you actually feel like you're genuinely being made to feel welcome. We had a spacious and comfortable room with a wonderful view of the sea. The staff are very friendly and attentive and nothing was ever too much trouble. The buffet breakfast is also one of the high points with stacks of excellent food and choices for everyone. It's a bit off the beaten track away from the hustle and bustle of Funchal (another attraction in our view) but there's a very good local bus service and plenty of taxis. We would certainly stay again if going to Madeira.

Just back from 2 weeks staying at this hotel in July and it was superb. All rooms face towards the sea not the road. Breakfast was a smorgasbord of food and even included champagne ! - served on a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea. It also offered free access to the Internet, discounted 5 day bus passes and a porter for suitcases. The pools were small but clean and the sunbathing area had palm trees and soothing music. The staff were very friendly, knowledgable and ALL had very good English - the food was fantastic. What more can I say - I would highly recommend it to all except young families as there is no children's pool.

This was our first trip to Madeira and (a) we would definitely come back to Madeira and (b) definitely come back to this hotel. Very helpful reception staff helping us organise local bus trips and levada walks. Lovely location - access to the very regular bus service to Funchal (approx 10 min journey) but far enough out to be away from the tourist bustle. Rooms spacious and kept very clean and all have sea views but no premium price for this. Quiet at night, walking access to numerous restaurants. Breakfast on the terrace with a wide selection. Plenty of local restaurants but easy to hop on a bus to funchal for restaurants there. A lovely hotel we would strongly recommend.

One of the best hotels I have ever been to. Our room was very spacious (premium room) and the balcony was big with fantastic view over the atlantic. Everything was nice and clean. I have been working with houskeeping myself, many years ago, so I always look with critical eyes when I am living at a hotel. The Madeira Regency cliff is absolutley perfekt. The service was great. The hotel is located a few km from Funchal city, but that´s no problem. There is a lokal bus a few steps from the hotel, and the hotel has a free shutlebus to take you in to the city (2 times a day). A shoppingcenter is located in the area (5 min to walk), and cafés and restaurants are in walking distance. Madeira is the most beatyfull place in the world, and we will shurley return, and most lightley we will stay at the Madeira Regency Cliff

Our first visit to Madeira and we were not disappointed. We were very impressed with the overall standard of the Regency Cliff hotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the quality of the food was excellent. We booked for half board and were very impressed with the quality of the food. The bedroom was very comfortable and the view from the balcony was wonderful. The location of the hotel is ideal especially if you wish to relax as it is far enough away from the main tourist area.
We will definitely try and book this hotel again when we next visit this rather beautiful island.

Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Would have been happy to spend the week on the beautiful terrace overlooking an amazing view. Although a longish walk into town, frequent buses give you the choice of walking or riding. Service was excellent, with friendly staff.
If walking into town, beware the Pestano info centre, where you might be persuaded into attending a 90 min presentation (time share obviously) in return for a 50 Euro reduction off island tour. The tours are offered at various prices around the town, and 90 mins may well turn into 4 hours!! Best to ask hotel staff for leaflets.
