Over the years, this grand 4T hotel has proved to be a firm favourite with guests – so much so that many come back time and time again. It’s a big place set back from the coastline in Funchal. And even though it’s got shops, bars and restaurants on its doorstep, it’s also got lots of greenery, too.
Its location makes for some great outdoor space. A figure of eight swimming pool is tucked into a roomy terrace, with palm-dotted gardens surrounding it. There’s a pool bar, as well as plenty of sunbeds and parasols.
Inside, the accommodation is a mix of bedrooms and suites. The décor is classic, so expect walls painted cream, beds of the big-and-smartly-dressed variety and sturdy wooden furniture. Extras like flatscreen cable TVs and air-conditioning come as standard. What’s more, kitchenettes with microwaves are all part of the set-up.
Another plus point about this place is its dining scene. Start the day with a buffet breakfast served down in the main restaurant. Evenings see your choices swell. As well as the main eatery, there are three à la cartes for half-board guests to enjoy - you will even get given a credit towards the menu. Take your pick from traditional Portuguese dishes in Alfama or indulge in Italian offerings in Il Basilico.

Wonderful, yet again!
Just returned from another wonderful week at Eden Mar! This hotel has never failed to provide its clientele with relaxation and service, even in the days when we first visited over 20 years ago, long before the Porto Bay group took charge. When we arrive in Madeira and are transported to Eden Mar, it is like returning home. We hope and pray that it never changes dramatically as we, like many others, just look forward to our next visit. Congratulations to Antonio and all his fantastic staff! Muito obrigada.More
Just got back from our stay of two weeks at the Eden Mar Hotel/Porto Bay Group. We have to say 4 star accommodation in which we stayed deserves to be a 5 star rating, as we were treated like 5 star guests. The accommodation the food and service was excellent. One of the very few hotels we would recommend to family and friends and certainly we will return and will be using the Porto Bay Group in the future. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE STAFF at the Eden Mar and the Thompson Rep (Alison) for looking after us so well.More

Only our second visit to this hotel in 15 years and we were not disappointed , the friendly and warm welcome on arrival seemed to carry on till the morning we left. A small problem with the linen was resolved immediately without any fuss but with huge apologies . A very heartfelt thanks go to all the staff including Sofia and General Manager Antonio Pais on making our Ruby wedding celebration so special .More

Have been coming to this hotel at least once a year for over 20 years - that should say it all. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are well appointed. The gardens are lovely and well kept. We would never consider any other hotel on Madeira. David CMore

We have just returned from a fantastic one week stay at the Eden Mar. This was our second visit and will definitely not be our last. Having travelled all over the world as an airline employee this hotel is certainly one of the best that we have stayed at. The staff are so friendly and attentive the facilities are superb. Everywhere is so clean and the restaurant's are excellent especially the Basilico Italian. Not having to hunt for a sun bed is an obvious bonus. The Gardens are amazing. Well done to all the staff at the Eden Mar for giving us a truly stupendous holiday at a superb hotel in a great location and we cant wait to return.More
