Hotel description

Are you planning a vacation on Madeira? Luxury, reliable service, a central location in the city of Funchal, a large culinary selection, and a spa area – the hotel The Cliff Bay combines all these factors and then adds a grand view over the Atlantic. This 5 star hotel on Madeira, a member of the Porto Bay Hotels & Resorts group, is one of the best luxury hotels in the world according to Tripadvisor.
The luxury hotel The Cliff Bay
The 5 star hotel The Cliff Bay sits directly at the western end of Funchal’s harbor. As the name of this Madeira Hotel implies, it sits on a cliff impressively overlooking the ocean. The view from this 5 star hotel is accordingly spectacular. The Cliff Bay has two swimming pools – a heated freshwater pool in the interior and a seawater pool of impressive dimensions outside. From the luxury hotel, it’s just a few steps to the “Lido, ” the popular recreation and party mile of Funchal. To add, in the direct vicinity of The Cliff Bay you’ll find the boardwalk, which leads to the nearby shingle beach.
A full culinary selection
A total of three bars and three restaurants make sure that the varied meals never come short in your vacation on Madeira: “The Blue Lagoon” is a, poolside international restaurant under the stars with a grand view over the ocean. “The Rose Garden, ” the largest restaurant of this 5 star luxury hotel, is the place to be for the breakfast buffet every morning, yet you can also dine here in the evenings. The third restaurant is called “Il Gallo d’Oro” (The Golden Cockerel) and is the gourmet restaurant of this luxury hotel (don’t forget your tie!). Here, Mediterranean cuisine is served accompanied by fine wines and live piano music. For those cravings in between meals, head to “The Cliff Bar & Bistro.” In the evenings, the “The Cliff Bar & Bistro” in the 5 star hotel The Cliff Bay allows you to take an aperitif prior to or enjoy a cocktail after your meal.
Spa hotel with holistic approach
The hotel The Cliff Bay features a very pretty spa area. Professional treatments, starting with facial and body massages and continuing with body purifications and aroma therapies all guarantee absolute relaxation in this 5 star hotel. The use of high quality products by ESPA assures wonderfully soothing properties.
