Desperate for some sun and the need to just completely chill out, I booked this hotel for myself and my 15yr old daughter at the last minute. We were not dissappointed. We arrived at the hotel and were met by friendly and efficient staff. We will admit that after seeing the stunning lobby and resaurant our initial impression of the room was dissappointing as it was dull and quite old fashioned compaired to the rest of the hotel, however, putting that aside, it was clean, quiet, in a great location on the ground floor, just a hop to the pool and the beds were really comfortable. The Wi Fi signal was weak on the lower level but adequate for my daughters need to remain in contact with the outside world!. The pool was tranquil with no problem dashing for a bed, there were always several available and clean towels were replaced as often as we needed them. We only ate breakfast in the hotel which covered just about every possible taste and set us up for the rest of the day. The best restaurants are found about 5-10 minuets walk along the promenade rather than along the front of the hotel, however, do be warned the back path down to the promenade from the hotel is very steep and not for the unfit. The new Lido directly below the hotel looked amazing for teenagers and although we didnt go, if my daughter had a friend with her I would feel perfectly happy for her to go back and forth unaccompanied . I wouldn't recommend this for families with teenagers who are looking for a bit more life, this is isnt what this hotel is all about, however, If you are looking for a quiet hotel to just completely swich off and relax away from all the hurly burley, this is the perfect choice. Both myself and my daughter have returned completely rested and would certainly love to return.

We arrived at the Regency Cliff on 23 Aug, being a party of 2 adults and 2 young children 5y and 11y , were met with a warm welcome from their excellent staff, very clean, nicely furnished spacious rooms, stayed on Bed and Breakfast basis, just felt very well looked after all the time, it was very pleasant in the evenings to have a cocktail on the patio area, over looking Funchal and the Ocean, a very pleasant setting, only had one evening meal which was excellent, we did eat quite often by the pool bar which was excellent, and quite reasonable priced, again such friendly staff.
Another thing that made it for me was, all of the hotel guests seemed to be very pleasant and friendly, French, German, Spanish and English, no noisy guests or misbehaving children.

As you can see by our ratings there is nothing to complain about this hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean and comfortable which gave an excellent nights sleep. The pool area wasn't over crowded and was very relaxing. The hotel is located in a good area for all amenities which includes a good public transport service. We are going to return to this hotel in the future.

Stay in this hotel was exactly as expected. Rooms are exteaordinary spacious, all overlooking the ocean, thus allowing to relax easily. This is definitely something worth to pay for. Also compared to other hotels, this one was priced very decently.

Dining in the hotel seemed expensive so we used the restaurant for dinner only once. You can find easily many restaurants near the hotel. Breakfasts were fine, but there was the same selection every day so on seventh day it was not that enjoyable as on the first one.

One of the reasons why I chose this hotel was that they advertised free wireless Internet in every room. It worked however only in rooms that are close to the reception, so I had to change the room.

In overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel for everyone that want peaceful and quiet holiday.

I have just returned home from a very relaxing week in Madeira Regency Cliff Hotel. This is a small hotel which is suited to couples and families with older children. There were not many children there which was great for my mother and I as we just wanted a peaceful holiday. This is a quiet spot and ideal for a relaxing holiday by the pool. The breakfast is a veritable feast and the lunches by the pool are great too! We only ate dinner in the hotel one night and it was good- lovely setting. The staff in general are polite and accommodating but some aspects could be improved upon. I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and family and would not hesitate in returning there someday soon.

A real gem!

Staying at the Regency Cliff was a pleasure. The Staff were friendly and hard working, while nothing was too much trouble. Igor at the pool, was also very entertaining. (ask him to show you the trick with a piece of string). The pool was small, but with another inside, seemed more than adequate and was a pleasant place to relax. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet, so a good sleep was generally assured. The Hotels proximity from the town centre, meant either a bus ride or taxi, or even a quite nice 40 minute walk, but it also held a commanding spot by the ocean. The breakfasts were more than adequate, and you can take advantage of some of their deals for evening meals, however, with a plethora of eating places around, eating out is always an option.

Visit started well by the hotel upgrading us to a suite! Very pleasant and well equipped rooms, with a sea view and good size balcony. Staff were extremely helpful and polite. Breakfast was usual buffet; not outstanding, but adequate. We only ate lunch once in the hotel and weren't very impressed (again, nothing awful, but not worth repeating).

Overall a very enjoyable stay in an above average hotel.
