First time at Eden Mar apart-hotel
Just back from a lovely week in Funchal, stayed at Eden Mar. From the minute we checked in till the time we left we could not fault our stay. We were told on arrival (by a really nice, very pleasant receptionist) that our room wasn't quite ready so we wandered around the gardens which were beautiful. Everywhere appeared to be very clean and well kept. When we went to our room we had been left a bouquet of flowers, sparkling wine in a cooler and petals scattered across the table and in the bathroom which was such a nice touch. They had been told we were on our honeymoon and wanted the room to be special for us. Breakfast was taken on the outside terraced area which was buffet style and lots to choose from. Again staff very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Would very much recommend this accommodation, room cleaned every day - towels and bedding of a high quality and all staff went the extra mile to ensure a great holiday :-) xMore
will go back.....
First visit to this complex but 5th holiday in Madeira. This hotel offered the best accomodation, even better as we were upgraded from a junior suite to a suite, with the biggest terrace we are ever likely to find. All areas of this 3hotel shared complex are lovely. Beautiful gardens which really add to the tranquil feel of the place. We like to venture out to different restaurants in the evenings so did not use the hotel restaurants but the bar areas are nice. First visit for our daughter, she was very happy and would travel there again.More
Prestige Gold Customers.......not!!
Jut back from Eden Mar after our 6th visit. I don't know how majority of reviewers receive such good attention and perfect rooms with perfect views of the ocean as it has just not happened for us... We usually enjoy Eden Mar but just did not work for us this time. After paying substantially more for a Superior Suite we were disappointed when we discovered we were in the darkest, bleakest corner of the complex looking on to palm trees with a glimpse of the sea. No way sunlight/daylight was going into this room No. 1434. We returned to Reception to advise that we were not happy with the accommodation and that this was our 6th visit and we would have liked a better location/room. First of all staff said we had only been 5 times but I said we had already been sent 2 gold cards and this was our 6th visit. After lots of frustrating conversations about us not being on their computer another receptionist 'found' us on a manual record. Anyway they said to change rooms we had to downgrade as the hotel was full. This was 16th June - and we had to wait until 17th June. So changed on 17th June to a smaller but brighter suite room no. 1515 - and low and behold we were faced with all the palm trees with a view through them of other apartments. No compensation for downgrading was offered. Our holiday was spoiled from day one when the staff were just not interested if you were not pleased with their choice of room for you but noticed they were always helpful to guests who had lovely bright rooms with views of the Atlantic Ocean. I hope all reviews are truthful because mine are and I am sad to say that I wont be returning to Eden Mar as I dont want my holiday spoiled on day 1. Food at breakfast was also changed as I thought all meats and cheese were much poorer quality - lots of plastic type cheese and wafer thin 'meat'. Tables took ages to clear and water for tea was always lukewarm but hey everyone has different standards. Anyway don't know how guests get the best rooms/attention but maybe someone will let me know!! Enjoy your Hols if you are still there. By the way Funchal is still a lovely place. Back to the drawing board now.More

Itâs very comforting to return to a hotel youâve been going to for some time to find that in many ways it really hasnât changed. Yes, of course things have moved on a bit and generally any changes at the Eden Mar have been improvements. Firstly itâs the welcome you receive from the management and staff which made us feel totally at home and able to relax immediately. There are smiles everywhere, from guests and staff. Secondly itâs the quality of the rooms, most with super views, closely followed by all other facilities in the Porto Bay complex. Then itâs the breakfast (in our case) in the Alfama Restaurant â always plentiful with constant replenishment if items are running out so thereâs plenty for everyone and no need for panic the first time you go in there on a Tuesday morning! The extensive gardens are continually improved and cared for and are well worth a stroll around. The pools are cleaned, there are plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas and the hotel requests that you donât reserve beds. Needless to say a few people ignored the request (donât blame the usual suspects!). Apparently pool staff are under instructions to remove all belongings left on the sun loungers after 90 minutes if not used. Itâs very difficult to monitor but these are very good sentiments that should be carried out and we did notice that some people left the beds far longer than this, in one case nearly three hours. The hotel also had a new system this year in that you had to pay a deposit for towels which was refunded when you returned the towels. So changes are, in fact, being made and the atmosphere in the hotel also seemed to change a bit in our second week. The entertainments staff were obviously trying to get more people involved in activities but some of us could have done without Mr Marron and his Latin Rhythm Dance, and his antics on the dance floor! Weâre too old for Club 18-30! We again went to a number of restaurants in the area, Ca Te Espero being our favourite and we tried another one for the first time (O Chefe Steakhouse and Sea Basket) which is above the Pingo Doce supermarket near the hotel. However after two visits weâre not too sure whether itâs good or not. Another new one, right next door to the Eden Mar, is Funcho and it could well be worth a try â it seemed to be fully opening as we left. Weâll return to the Eden Mar and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it. We just hope that they donât make too many changes which could alter the very essence of the facility.More
We loved everything about this hotel. It was clean, quiet and having the gardens in the complex was so relaxing. What a difference not to have towels reserving the sun beds as happens normally. Food was also delightful. Staff all very pleasant. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting MadeiraMore
