This elegant, sea-facing hotel gives you a pool set in tropical gardens and a first-class dining scene.
Set among tropical gardens, the Eden Mar is part of the Vila Porto Mare resort. It has shops and restaurants right on the doorstep. Speaking of restaurants, the hotel has four, including a traditional Portuguese place.
There are two pools – one indoors, one out. And there’s a luxury spa at the sister hotel next-door, where you’ll also find tennis, minigolf and more. In the evenings, you can look forward to live music.
The figure of eight pool sits inside a spacious terrace, bordered with sunbeds and parasols and surrounded with palm-dotted gardens. If you'd like a change of scene, you can also use the outdoor pool and indoor pool at Vila Porto Mare Resort.
You’ll find the spa at the sister hotel the Vila Porto Mare, which is part of the same complex. There’s a gym, whirlpool bath, six treatment rooms, two saunas, a Turkish bath, hydro massage bath, relaxation room and Vichy shower. You can also choose from a variety of facials, aromatherapy treatments, massages, reflexology, waxing, manicures and pedicures.
There's lots of natural light in this studio and it's large too. There's a kitchen area with a microwave - ideal for making snacks and there's also cable LCD TV. Plus there's air-conditioning and Wi-Fi* too. Outside you'll have a balcony or terrace - just so you know - the sea view is through the palm trees.

Found this to be a fantastic warm and friendly hotel linked to it's neighbour Porto Mare, good choice of resturants and facilites, easy bus ride to Funchal with all the bustling business of a capital city.More

Ideal place to stay.
Lovely hotel in a good position. Is a little way out from Funchal itself but the hotel runs a free courtesy bus several times a day. The hotel is on a site along with two other hotels in the Porto Mar group and all of the facilities, restaurants etc. can be used wherever you are staying. The whole complex is very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful and after the first day or two remembered you. Breakfast was very good. A good choice food, all looking very fresh. Champagne every morning if you wanted it. We ate at The Med restaurant twice, Il Basilico once and used the buffet the rest of the time. All were very good, especially the Med. I have commented on these separately.More
This was a great winter break
This was our first time at the hotel and my wife and I enjoyed our stay. The room 3101 was clean and well kept and the room staff changed the linen regularly.
We found the staff very pleasant, helpful and informative especialy the reception.
The only person that spoilt it was the supervisor at the pool bar in the garden who we found to be disinterested and made the point of ignoring people, an art form
Yes we will return it was a good holiday.More
Again visited Funchal and stayed at Eden Mar. Ideally placed for the area. Good facilities. Staff very friendly and as we had stayed here before welcomed us like old friends. Will certainly tay there again.More

happy holiday with sting in the tail.
We have stayed with Porto Hotels before and always have a lovely time. The staff are wonderful, nothing too much trouble. We stayed in October 2015. On the very first day my disabled son slipped in the bath. We spent most of the first evening and the next morning in the local hospital. He had a small head injury and a very bad knee. This was misdiagnosed by the hospital. We spent the rest of the week not going too far, although we rented a wheelchair it was still painful for my son to get around.
Once home he was seen by our local hospital. He had a fracture under the knee cap. He had been walking on a broken leg. This injury is still a problem now, he still has pain, and is unable to walk very far.
The reason I want to post this is, I am very upset that no one from the hotel group has contacted us, I did phone to inform them that he has a broken knee.
As this accident was because the bath was slippery, the non slip surface had warn away, and no bath mat was in the room. I do think it would have been nice if someone had shown concern.
I would still go back to the hotel, but feel let down.More
