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.

Room without a Sea View!
Just back from 2 weeks at the Eden Mar, first visit to this hotel but had stayed at the Porto Mare hotel next door. Booked a Junior Suite with sea view, ended up with a Junior suite in Room 1106, but you had to be over 6ft tall and stand on the edge of the balcony and look sharp left over a tall hedge to get any glimpse of the sea! Had a long tiring journey and reception was very busy so didn't have the energy to complain and settled for the room we were given. Whoever books these rooms out to guests knows very well that this room (and no doubt others on that floor) does not have a sea view and it is pretty sharp practice to claim that they do!! Apart from that, the room was fine, gardens were great and food (half board) excellent. Portofino bar very relaxing but entertainment a bit bland, same group each night. Enjoyable walk to and from Funchal, with the courtesy bus a great option when necessary. Went to some concerts in Funchal and would highly recommend the Mandelin Orchestra of Madeira, a wonderful evening with some very talented young musicians. So a very enjoyable couple of weeks............shame that the 'room without a sea view' spoiled things a bit, management need to address this.More

Back to a great hotel
We have been visiting Madeira for over twenty years now, the last 10 or so to Funchal and this is the best hotel we have stayed in. The rooms even come with a well fitted and supplied kitchenette The beds are comfortable , the double glazing practically soundproof and the cleaning is exceptional. You also have use of all the facilities of the Porto Mar, so if you fancy a change of breakfast scene, you just walk next door. If Anything disappointed me it was the fact that neither of the wonderful outdoor pools were heated and I do love to swim ,even in January when we always visit.More
Nothing to complain, great, nice hotel with good location. Never tried food so cant comment on that but hotel was really nice. Receptionist visit us very politely and we also received free upgrade so even better than expected. Room service exceptional. Highly recommended.More

Liked it but not enough
Very shocked at how I feel after spending 5 days here, setting is beautiful and my family and I which range in age from just 1 to 70 had been so looking forward to our stay. We used to stay in the tivoli so passed eden mar regular on other stays. Rooms are very spacious, food is good but and it's these little things that annoy me- my baby was unwell and cleaner asked could she do our room I sayed yes but leave beds baby's asleep I'd make them up later she made a face and told me she wanted to change sheets!!! I told here baby's asleep so no. There are no irons or ironing boards in room otherwise very well stocked so upon arrival requested iron as with kids esp I hadn't ironed all our clothes before leaving I was hounded to give it back on the 2 day of our trip I gave it back on day 3... A joke for such a resort my final gripe is the spa I can honestly say and when it comes to spa treatments we really like them it was the worst treatments we ever had that's 3 women ages 40,30 15 and one 70 year old man I went back and had extra treatment thinking well could be just a bad day but nope, I'd return to the eden mar but on my own terms as place is beautiful and if like me you need a kitchen it's ideal. Bring my own iron, definitely no spa treatments in their spa I'd go elsewhere. Oh and the spa rang as I borrowed a swim foam length thing to help my son it was no good as he was too small so I left it in pool area I hadn't signed for it or anything and like with floats for kids u usually leave them around pool area they actually rang my room to say they'd only 2 where was it ?? My daughter took the call I didn't even ring back it was beyond petty. I suggest this resort invest in irons and floats because it comes across as cheap and stingy to be honest. Had such high hopes!!! More

just as good previously
We stayed here in November 2014 after a gap of two years (why did we try elsewhere in Madeira). Excellent stay and we upgraded from Junior to full suite. As part of the deal we got restaurant vouchers etc and used these to the full. We even bought more vouchers for the Atlantida buffet restaurant which we found excellent. The only slight downside is that from the room there was intrusive noise from some large fans in the building opposite. The staff attention was good and on our wedding anniversary we had a bed covered in rose petals and a bottle of champagne. I had not written a review before as we thought we would not be able to travel again because of a medical condition, but that has been solved. So we will be back later this year in a Junior suite.More
