The Cliff Bay offers spectacular Atlantic vistas and a Michelin star a short hop from Funchal city centre.

It may be the views, it may be the impeccable service or Madeira’s best food that you remember from your stay at The Cliff Bay, a superb hotel, 2 kilometers from Funchal city centre. But it may also be the way staff make a gentle fuss around your young ones, as when a tot walks through the front doors here, you’d think the island’s governor had just popped in for tea.

For You -

Madeira’s only Michelin star twinkles brightly in the Gallo d’Oro restaurant where Mediterranean ingredients are expertly combined with local produce by chef Benoît Sinthonto to create the island’s finest culinary experience. The hotel’s location on a rocky promontory means guests enjoy private access to the sea as well as pools and a stunning chill out area with knock-me-down views of Funchal Bay, best enjoyed at sundown.

For Them +

The Cliff Bay is one of just a handful of hotels on the island to lay on a children’s entertainment programme in the summer months, including sports, competitions and art workshops. There’s a babysitting service for those too young to wield a racket or a crayon.
