The hotel is' eden ', as the garden of paradise, and for us this holiday was like in paradise. The staff was always friendly and helpful, the room was spacious, well equipped and very clean. Breakfast overly plentiful and varied. We ate in the restaurant twice in the evening. The food was excellent and the service perfect. Anytime again. read hotel review

  • April 2014
We felt very comfortable, since we a suite with the best view of the beautiful garden area around the pool areas around - the garden is very well maintained with references to the name and origin of the plants and trees as well as a herb garden, the also used for the dishes in the restaurants. Furthermore, that we also had a beautiful view of the atlantic ocean. The entire staff is friendly and helpful, also tourists without english or portuguese knowledge can feel well cared for, but not damage english language skills. The gastronomy offers excellent regional and international ... cuisine with fresh products (fruit, vegetables, fish, bread from a traditional bakery etc.) in well-kept ambience. We can Eden Mar as part of the Porto Bay resorts only recommend it. read hotel review

A lot of effort for the guests, but not pushy. This creates a pleasant holiday atmosphere. As expected, the culinary offer at the hotel was of high quality, but more expensive than outside. This is not a problem, because mountains surrounding it also plenty of cheaper restaurants are. read hotel review

Top hotel, top service by pleasant unobtrusive and very friendly staff, great location for driving to Funchal, all in all a successful great vacation! Will definitely be back! read hotel review

Brilliant!

  • November 2013
The hotel is in a very well-kept garden, together with the Porto Mar. Despite the size of this hotel you will always find a quiet, romantic spot. The superior rooms with sea view are spacious, have a kitchenette and a large balcony. The bathroom is equipped with everything you need for a swimming and spa vacation (like beach towels and bathrobes). The pools are clean and nicely laid out. The in- and outdoor pool is particularly pleasant in the Autumn, as it can get a bit cooler in the afternoons. The breakfast buffet is varied and everything was freshly prepared. ... The (entire) staff is very friendly, helpful and multilingual. It's quiet at night, so no entertainment shows (perhaps there are in the summer?) but good live music at the bar (our personal preference, too.) However, if you aren't going to survive the vacation without internet, you'll need to bring your own 'equipment', as there is only one computer that can be used at reception. We can fully recommend the hotel and if we go back to Madeira, we'd book the Eden Mar again, which actually deserves an extra star! read hotel review
