The Atlantic Ocean stretches as far as the eye can see at the foot of The Cliff Bay. Perched on the top of a natural promontory, the hotel is surrounded by gardens - with innumerable secluded corners and centenary palm trees extending to the very edge of the cliff face. The panorama is completed by a magnificent view over the bay of Funchal to the east of the hotel. This 5 star hotel, one of PortoBay Hotels premium resorts, assures that every single little detail has been carefully conceived to present genuine peace, well-being and elegance. In the hotels sea access area one can combine the Atlantic Ocean breeze with the spell-binding views when choosing the new pontoons and solariums. The most influential restaurant guide in the world, the Michelin Guide, has awarded the Il Gallo d'Oro, The Cliff Bay's gourmet restaurant, run by Chef Benot Sinthon, with 2 Stars.
