The Cliff Bay Hotel Funchal

Reviewed 19 may, 2022

Fantastic hotel, we have been coming here for many years and will be back again! Cannot fault in any way and the staff are' perfect'. Our sea view room was again comfortable, clean and the service provided by all the staff was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

This is our definite favourite hotel in Funchal. This was our 4th stay. The location is great, offering easy access to the Lido area and also into Funchal centre (though uphill on the way back so maybe take a local bus). The hotel itself lives up to its 5 star rating. Service was always faultless (from room service queries to pool attendant service). Our junior suite room was excellent – comfort, cleanliness, replenishment of soft drinks in mini bar. The gardens, seating areas and endless sun loungers are also excellent. My only negative is in relation to the price of evening meals. Breakfast was perfect with endless choices, whether we ate in the Rose Garden or Il Gallo d’Or (latter part of our room package) but we chose a 3 day dinner ‘special’ offer. This was 57 euros per person including wine, water & coffee in the Rose Garden. It was remarkably poor value. Cris’s Place (about 5-10 minutes away & similar ‘fine dining’) offers infinitely better for 45 euros. In particular the vegetarian menu at the Cliff Bay just wasn’t worth 57 euros. A further – significant – annoyance was that when we ate at 8.30pm (only time available) waiters/waitresses were simply focussed on clearing/ preparing adjoining tables for the next day’s breakfast, whilst we still hadn’t ordered desserts. NOT a good experience. Recommendation: B&B at the Cliff Bay is wondrous, but there are just so many excellent restaurants nearby (some incredibly cheap but first rate food) avoid evening meals there.

Dinner in the Rose Garden Restaurant

Reviewed 18 may, 2022

Travelling solo can be daunting but I have never found it a problem staff have usually been very good. I sat for one hour in the Rose Garden restaurant and was only served water and a bread roll. After an hour I walked out and complained to the head waiter who suggested I had the meal sent up to my room. Single ladies deserve to be treated better. I was not offered another meal in the restaurant.

Overall, we enjoyed our most recent stay at this excellent hotel which has a high percentage of repeat clients. That in itself speaks volumes about the overall quality and customer care on offer to guests. The facilities, gardens, ambience & personnel at The Cliff Bay are all first class. However, there were several areas that we feel should be addressed by the experienced management team. Firstly, although the buffet breakfast is extensive with a dedicated cooking station, we found on our most recent two week stay that the breakfast side dishes were always luke warm at best. This usually peaceful hotel was somewhat noisy most day’s with the exception of a Sunday from screened construction or renovation work taking place at the Vida Mar hotel next door! Cliff Bay guests on the sea view or side sea view rooms, sitting on their balconies or trying to enjoy the beautiful hotel gardens or terrace were in for a shock. The noise of hammering and loud breaking glass was deeply annoying. Whilst appreciating that the noise & environmental disturbance was not generated from the Cliff Bay, it is rather unfortunate that our tour operator or The Cliff Bay team could not inform valuable repeat guests like ourselves of this disturbance in advance. We both felt let down by the fact that no one informed us of this daily noise which really impacted on our two week stay. So, potential future Cliff Bay guests please do bear this in mind. It was so noisy at times that we had to come in from our balcony. We have raised this matter with our tour company customer service department as the lack of forewarning about this noise impact was unacceptable. Finally, when we enquired about the absence of the PortoBay courtesy coach into Funchal, we were advised this is due to sustainability measures! Perhaps, if the PortoBay group is so rightly concerned about sustainability issues, then they should invest in an electric coach thus allowing them to continue this valuable service for valued guests and repeat clients. We saw other hotel groups in the area still running their conventional fossil fuelled coaches from their properties into the centre of Funchal. When you look at the overall demographic of the loyal & repeat clients at The Cliff Bay, it would be an asset to have the courtesy coach facility returned to compliment guest facilities & satisfaction. Finally, having visited The Cliff Bay, numerous times over the year’s, imagine our surprise when checking out at being asked by the reception staff member, if we would like to leave a gratuity for the reception staff, bell boys and concierge! This has never happened to us before at The Cliff Bay, at any other PortoBay portfolio Hotel, nor at any other hotel across the world! Is this really true customer focused care & hospitality and what valued & repeat guest’s should be getting asked at checkout? It was explained to us by the same receptionist that this gratuity was not obligatory and was at our discretion. However, guest’s should not be getting posed this question by the reception team or any member of the Cliff Bay team. As we pointed out to the receptionist, we had in actual fact, voluntarily, left gratuities to valued members of the Cliff Bay team, when we received excellent customer care from staff members. Overall, we enjoyed our two week stay. However, the areas of concern that we’ve highlighted should be addressed by the management team at The Cliff Bay to maintain it’s usually high standards.

We cannot wait to return to The Cliff Bay Hotel. The views are spectacular, the food is great and the staff are a real credit to the hotel. We were impressed by the beautiful gardens and the number of options for finding peace and tranquility in the grounds.
