Lovely hotel with large well equipped rooms

We have just had a week in this lovely hotel and had a thoroughly good time. Our room was on the first floor, directly above the breakfast room but we heard no noise until about 8am so no real disturbance. The breakfast was self service with lots of choice and most mornings we sat outside in the beautiful gardens. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms are huge with a kitchen area and amply equipped so you could almost be self catering with the benefit of having your room serviced each day. The facilities in both the Eden Mar and the Porto Bay are really good with indoor and outdoor pools and numerous other benefits. The gardens are just lovely, really well maintained with a wide variety of exotic plants with many in flower, even in October. The walk into Funchal sea front takes about 30 minutes however there is a free bus during the day so you have the option of walking or not. There are many restaurants within a few minutes walk so eating out in the evening is not a problem. We would certainly go back to Eden Mar if we decided to return to Madeira.More

Fab Hotel

Well run, clean, excellent staff, great pools and facilities. We had a great room overlooking the sea which was spacious and even had a small kitchen unit including a good sized fridge - great. Could not have asked for more reallyMore

Holiday in Madeira

This was our first trip to Madeira and we discovered that the Island was wonderful. In addition the Hotel Eden Mar (Porta Bay) made our holiday a trip to be remembered as the staff, food gardens and everything were excellent. It was our wedding aniversary while we were there and the Hotel sent us a bottle of bubbly and flowers and covered our roon in red rose petels which made our aniversary rather romantic. So a big thankyou to the hotel and we will go again.More

Can't wait to go back!

This was our eighth trip to Madeira and our sixth to the Eden Mar it provides exactly what we are looking for (relaxation, warmth, good food and friendly people (both locals and fellow visitors)). The accommodation is a high standard with plenty of communal space. We don't use the sun loungers but there always appear to be sufficient. We have eaten in the hotel on previous visits but there are so many restaurants near by we eat out from the wide variety available. If I could change one thing I would swap the soft pillows for something firmer (of course this might be personal taste). Madeira is a volcanic island and therefore hilly, you will be going uphill on the way from or when returning to the hotel (this is true of most of the hotels we have seen). The resources of the Villa Porto Mare complex are open to visitors from any of the hotels, we always have breakfast in the Porto Mare. There are activities during the day and in the evening but you are not coerced into taking part. We particularly enjoy the Black Dog Blues Band and Banda d'Alúm (a local folk band). This is not our normal taste in music but their enthusiasm makes it entertaining. Whilst all the staff are trying to ensure everybody has a good time I feel it necessary to single out Cecilia on reception, she has ways of brightening our stays and we didn't even realise they needed brightening.More


Can't stay away!

Having had a busy year and needing a complete chill out in our special anniversary year, we came back to a hotel we can rely on to reach and exceed our holiday expectations. We cannot fault anything (apart from a troublesome flusher on the cistern which was soon fixed) and after two weeks we wished we'd stayed longer. The Lido area is improving all the time and the hotel has addressed issues reported by others. For example fixed parasols so people can't hog several and signs asking people not to save sunbeds but there are always plenty. The gardens are a dream and the staff brilliant. The management team must be so proud of them. We had a brilliant room, the amenities especially the spa are fabulous. I could go on but I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't been come and see for yourselves!More
