"Recommend This Island For The 40 Plus!"

The Eden Mar is a high standard of hotel with spectacular gardens, beautiful pools and great views of the ocean, we stayed bed and breakfast which was nice only a little bit repetative.

In a large complex, toatling 3 hotels, which allowed you to use all the facilities of each hotel, the is a shuttle bus into Funchal which is a must, a stunning city.

Strongly recommend this island for the 40 plus generation and not younger people.

"Enjoy The Eden Mar"

The Eden Mar offered us a really pleasant & relaxing holiday in this busy resort. The staff were friendly & very professional with their attention to detail.

Our room was on the 4th floor and was possibly the most spacious room we have ever had after 20 years of package holidays with all the major tour operators over that period.

A real bonus for me was the advantage of the free internet and because I was in a room overlooking the dining room, I could receive the WiFi signal on the balcony of my room!

The only thing that we didn't know before we travelled was that they charge 1 Euro per day for parasols around the pool. Not a great expense, but it was still an additional charge. If it's free internet & a charge for parasols, then that's fine by me, as opposed to the other way around!

Enjoy the Eden Mar and the Porto Mar Hotel complex attached.

"I Would Definitely Stay At This Hotel Again"

We have just returned from Madeira where we stayed at the Eden Mar Suite Hotel in Funchal. The hotel was great with very nice and helpful staff.

The room was huge and comfortable, clean and a large bathroom with bath and shower. We did however pay extra for a sea view and larger room. We stayed half board and the restaurant had a very good buffet with lots of choice.

The hotel is part of a complex with the hotel Porto Mar next door where the restaurant is actually situated. If you are not staying half board there are two other restaurants on the complex where you can eat if you don't fancy leaving the hotel.

We spent most of our 1 weeks holiday by the large and very pleasant pool area, there are also two indoor pools one in particular at the Porto Mar was beautiful.

At night there was entertainment which was ok and a duet in the bar most nights. I would definitely stay at this hotel again but would also look to stay next door in the Porto Mar.

"Can't Wait To Go Back"

What a great hotel. I stayed at the Eden Mar in Feb with my wife. Just perfect for a nice and relaxing holiday.

The Eden Mar is a large complex that shares facilities with two other hotels in the same group. It has great facilities, indoor and outdoor pools, gym etc.

Staff are efficient and friendly, and most speak English.

The evening entertainment is fair, the normal range of singers, dancers, magic shows that you get in this type of accommodation.

Our board arrangement was bed and breakfast, this was served buffet style. The restaurant was clean and there was a good variety of food to suit all tastes.

The Eden Mar provide a free bus several times a day to take you in to Funchal. Can't wait to go back.

"We Had Two Weeks At The Eden Mar"

We had two weeks at the Eden Mar from July 9th to July 23rd. The hotel itself and the staff were wonderful. Our room had a lounge and separate bedroom with a small kitchen behind folding doors. Two televisions with a very good selection of channels which is most unusual as most resorts in Spain, Majorca and Portugal only have local and German channels. Not that we were watching telly all the time but used to get the news on BBC or Sky to keep up with things at home while we were dressing for the evening.

The pools were fantastic and never seemed teeming with people although there were many people there. Because of the space with the three buildings it never seemed crowded like some resorts we have been to. Sunbeds aplenty and free. We didn't have to reserve one by placing our towels down hours before although some people just can't kick the habit! There were areas just for sun worshipers away from the pool and two outdoor bar areas, a smaller one at Eden Mar and the larger one at Porto Mar, we often had a snack lunch here which was very nice, toasties come complete with chips and salad and the spaghetti bolognaise is very tasty. It is more expensive than outside the Hotel but the service and food is better so you get what you pay for.

The evening entertainment was however very disappointing, everyone tried their best but half an hour from 9 to 9.30pm with a quiz, bingo or parrot show was not quite enough. Then the main act you had been waiting for only played for about three quarters of an hour. This meant that at around 10.30/10.45 the evening's entertainment was over. This consisted of: Monday, magician, Tuesday, fado singing (Portuguese), Wednesday, Madeiran singing group (happy clappy stuff) Thursday, folklore of Madeira, Friday karaoke (mostly by drunken holidaymakers) modern dance act (ballet and jazz dancing) Sunday opera/songs from the shows by British male singer. Not exactly what my husband and I enjoy and we mostly sat outside on the terrace having a drink. Although we are nearly 60 we enjoy live bands and a bit of rock or soul music but could find nothing nearby like this. We even asked some of the staff and was directed to one pub/restaurant up the hill but when we got there on evening it was closed for their summer holidays until 1st August!!!

The drinks - if you like a beer, they are very limited with only Coral beer or bottled ordinary Guinness and export Carlsberg both of which we didn't like as we are used to draught so we stuck with the local ones.

The local Restaurants were reasonably OK with the nearby Chinese "Grande Mundo" being one of our favourite haunts, we went there three times in our 14 days and each time the food was good, the price very reasonable and the Service excellent. The local Indian however was very expensive and the food non-descript. We thought it was a rip-off and did not return and would not recommend it. The best restaurant that we found was up the hill from the hotel, across the main road and up the hill on the right past the fish restaurant. You will see a doorman in what looks like a Harrods doorman outfit and he is very friendly and offers you a drink of Madeira or brandy while you look at the menu. It is in a very pretty garden and the food was very good. We again went there three times and one night had steak on a stone which was wonderful and tender, I am not a lover of steak but ate every bit of this and you can cook it yourself to your own liking.

We went on the "Sea Pleasures" catamaran and actually found dolphins which brought tears to my eyes and was very professionally looked after by the three young men sailing her. We have had boat trips in Spain and Lanzarote where they think it is funny to throw tourists around the boat by sailing too fast and quite dangerously but this was very well handled and informative about the dolphins and the surrounding views and history.

All in all it was a lovely break and if you are looking to totally relax then this is the place for you but if you want a bit more life in your evenings don't go to Madeira. If you do go to this hotel I don't think you will be disappointed with the service or surroundings, they are beautiful and go see Carlos in the Atlantico Bar for one of his wonderful cocktails and he will cheer you up!!
