Brilliant in spite of problems
You really find out how good somewhere is when there are problems. This time of year they do refurbishments of rooms and we suffered noise. Sorted and then they offered a new room when the building work extended more than they expected- before we complained! Thanks to reception manager and especially staff Sylvia and Cecelia for much care and attention in making our stay so good in doing their job so well . This is a good hotel with great staff. Laid back atmosphere - not stuffy or pretentious- great facilities alongside Porto Bay We will come again. More
Suite Hotel Perfect in every way...
The Eden Mar Suite Hotel surpassed all expectations that we had, having previously stayed at their Sister Hotel, the Porto Santa down in the Old Town. We had a Junior Suite on a high floor and as they are all South Facing and overlooking the Pool, we had the sun all day. The management and running of the Complex leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. The staff at every level of the Complexâs Operations are Professional, Polite, Helpful, and Courteous in every way. The Reception staff are quite amazing. When a guest approaches the Reception Desk, the staff are prepared for whichever national language the guest might use; Portuguese, English, German, French, Dutch, Scandinavian guests are always greeted and dealt with in the most Professional and Helpful mannerâ¦ always. I would like to thank in particular Cecilia on Reception, who on the penultimate day of our holiday, was amazingly helpful and supportive and helped us through a particularly worrying emergency situation, which in the end resolved satisfactorily. If I was asked the question ââ¦. what could we do to make your stay any betterâ¦.â, my resounding answer would be ââ¦. absolutely nothingâ¦â¦please just carry on running your Hotel the way that you areâ¦..â The Eden Mar is part of the Porta Bay Hotel Group and guests staying at any of the three accommodations in this complex, namely the âEden Marâ, the âPorto Mareâ and âThe Residenceâ are able to use all facilities across the whole complex. The Guest to Sunbed ratio is the best that I have ever come across, and must be in the region of 3 or 4 to 1. Staff are instructed to remove towels if left for more than 1.5 hours. But this was never necessary as all guests acted responsibly. The facilities include multiple Swimming Pools, a Gymnasium, Mini Golf, and a multitude of both Open and Secluded areas within the Landscaped Gardens, where one can follow many leisure pursuits or simply sunbathe or relax to oneâs hearts content. The Landscaped Gardens are incredible and will please all tastes. I cannot praise this establishment enoughâ¦â¦. we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at the Eden Mar and will certainly be returning.More

This hotel gets better the more times you stay there. Our room a junior suite was superbly situated overlooking the pool and the sea with sun on the balcony nearly all day. It was more than well looked after by the maid for which we thank her. A very spacious room and very well appointed. Reception staff are second to none and oh so helpful and friendly. Ate in the Alfarma one night and food and staff there made it a worthwhile experience and very reasonably priced. Can't wait to go back for another stay here. Would recommend to anyone.More
Nice place for first visit to Madeira
We love Madeira on our first trip, and Eden Mar seemed to be a pretty perfect launchpad to explore the island. The rooms were clean, with comfortable beds and well-furnished bathrooms. Everything worked for us, though the room decor was a little dated and in need of refurbishment at some point soon. The staff were kind and approachable, both at reception and at the restaurants on site. The breakfasts weren't the best we've ever had in these sorts of resorts, but were reasonable and provided a broad selection of foodstuffs for the morning - albeit being very German-centric. Occasionally you would struggle to get a seat for breakfast in the main hall, but the wait would be very, very brief. To be seated outside, however, you'd have to be there in good time (before 9). The pool was clean apart from the volcanic ash that rained down upon us, though I can't really blame Eden Mar for that. They put out pool cleaners promptly when this happened. My only annoyance in this regard is they constantly shut the pools/jacuzzis throughout our 11 night stay at very inconvenient times for 'cleaning' - this would be sometimes throughout the day, which was very annoying. Sun loungers were quite easy to come by and you can get fresh towels by returning used towels (weirdly enough) to the spa, a short walk away from the pool. The hotel itself is a 15-20 minute (free) shuttle bus away from Funchal, the capital, or around a 10 minute, â¬5-10 taxi ride away - price dependent on the time you go. All in all, a really lovely place to enjoy the sun & greenery that Madeira has to offer!More
Winter break 2017
Most relaxing break in a high quality hotel. Our first visit to Madeira and The Eden Mar but we are looking forward to returning. We were recommended to come here and it was a delight from the moment we arrived. Friendly and very well run the hotel and its grounds and facilities were a delightMore
