The 5-star Cliff Bay Hotel has a great beachfront location, surrounded by lush vegetation and boasting magnificent views over Funchal Bay – your perfect tranquil spot. A proud member of PortoBay Hotels & Resorts, the hotel features four restaurants – including one with two Michelin stars – and private access to the sea, so coastal paradise can be reached with an ease. 

All the spacious, air-conditioned rooms at the Cliff Bay Hotel have been tastefully decorated and are fitted with LCD TVs as well as free WiFi. Rooms are also equipped with private bathrooms with Rituals bath products and plush bathrobes for ultimate comfort. 

The hotel’s Blue Lagoon restaurant and bar has a tranquil appeal being situated next to the outdoor pool and sea, so enjoy your lunch whilst taking in the fresh sea air. Here, you can tuck into various drinks and snacks throughout the day, making it the perfect respite when you need a break from lounging in the sun. The hotel’s main restaurant, The Rose Garden, specialises in a themed buffet service and is inspired by various styles of international cuisine. At the Rose Garden, you can choose between a special a la carte service or opt for the buffet, the choice is yours. 

Guests can experience ultimate relaxation and a personalised service at the hotel’s spa. Opt for a romantic massage for two in the spa suite or treat yourself to some body treatments and facials instead, including aromatherapy, hydrotherapy and reflexology. You’ll also find a gym, a Jacuzzi and a traditional Turkish steam bath within the wellness area. During the day, cool off in one of three swimming pools on site, one of which is just for children or jump off the hotel’s pontoon instead and enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea. 

If water-based activities are your thing, arrange diving and snorkelling classes at the hotel’s reception and you’ll also receive a free introductory lesson! Combine your stay during Portobay’s Flower Week and pay homage to the most beautiful flowers on the island or pay a visit to Blandy’s Lodge instead and sample some of Madeira’s finest wines.
