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.

An Oasis of calm and tranquility!!
Visited the suite Hotel Eden Mar for a week in April 2014. We were absolutely amazed at the cleanliness of the entire complex. The suite we had was fantastic with a view of the pool and sea. The bed was really comfortable which is essential when you have back issues!! The bathroom was big and the small kitchen area was really good. Loved the fact that we had a fridge and the option of eating in if required. With a supermarket right next door that's exactly what we did on a couple of occasions taking in the sun on our balcony in the early evening with a nice bottle of wine. Perfect....... We found the amenities to be really good, especially the two indoor pools! Excellent for when the weather is a bit dicey. We ate in the restaurant at the Porto Mare and had a brilliant meal. They have signature evenings i.e steak night (which is the one we did). It was a bit pricey but I have to say was well worth every penny. The place itself was amazing and the food excellent. The staff very professional and it was just a brilliant night. The weather for us was really good and we only had one day of cloud which meant we just chilled out around the pool pretty much all week. Good options for lunch and drinks and prices very competative. We had breakfast included which I thought was pretty good. I always feel that a breakfast is a breakfast and there is only so much you can do. They covered everything with all the usual, cereal, fruit, breads, hot buffet with tea and coffee brought to your table. I liked the way the room was set out and the fact that most of the tables were set for two so you had your own space without having to sit all crammed in together as sometimes happens, I like my own space. We couldn't quite believe how peaceful and calm the place was, just what the doctor ordered to recharge your batteries. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful little place that we would highly recommend.More

Another wonderful holiday
It's always a risk returning to a place that you have enjoyed. We have just returned from our 5th visit to Suite Hotel Eden Mar and once again we have had a wonderful time. Everything that was good about it - quality of facilities, hospitality and friendliness of the staff, good value of food and drink available, well equipped gym - was as good if not even better. We were fortunate with the weather which was warm and sunny throughout. Hopefully the Lido will re-open later in the year and that will only add to the amenities available. We will return soon. Thans again to all the wonderful staff at Eden Mar. Your friendly welcome makes it so easy to come back over and over again.More

Recently had a week at this hotel with my wife and two pre-school children. We had a suite which had plenty of room for all of us. We did not eat in the hotel in the evenings, we ate breakfast and lunch in the hotel. Standard of food and hotel was very good, staff were excellent as all the other reviews state. We used most other hotel services with no complaints.More
