“Back Again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

I have just returned from my 7th visit to the Eden Mar. Madeira is a beautiful island with stunning scenery, charming villages and friendly happy people and needs no endorsements from me. Every year I look at brochures for other places, other hotels but nothing seems to suit and I find myself landing in Santa Cruz once again.On arrival guests are welcomed warmly by reception and the hotel does its best to give you your "usual"room. The gardens are stunningly beautiful and well kept. The staff in restaurants and bars are efficient and good humoured. The aim of this hotel is to make your stay a confortable and pleasant experience which it does admirablly. Just one complaint....cant I take my hotel bed back to Devon with me as I sleep better on that than I do at home!

Stayed February 2014

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for the ““Back Again!” review posted on TripAdvisor and for let us know that overall you had a such positive holiday experience. Thank you also for your support by staying so many times with us.

Regarding your question about taking the hotel to Devon, the answer is NO you can’t, otherwise we would lose our jobs…unless you want to take all of us too..our salaries are not so high!

It will be a pleasure to welcome you again,

Warm regards,

Muito obrigado,

My husband and I stayed at the Eden Mar for one week from 24th February. We chose the hotel on the basis of the trip advisor reviews, its promity to Funchal and the selection of indoor and outdoor pools; one of which has both indoor and outdoor sections and an outdoor jacuzzi - very nice!

We stayed in the Eden Mar rather than the Porto Mare due to the price but you have easy access to all of the Porto Mare Facilities and do not even have to go out side to go to their restaurant, bar and indoor pool (see above). We ate breakfast every day at the Porto Mare which had a good selection of cooked food (full English, omelettes etc.), continental breakfast, cereals, fruit and so on.

The room was basic but had a sea view (I don't think we paid extra for this and seem to recall that all rooms at the Eden Mar have a sea view - but not sure how this could be if you are on the ground floor?). The grounds and gardens are lovely and it's a really good location, about 40 minute walk to Funchal (its not all uphill either, so not as bad as made out in a previous review). There are plenty of good restaurents close by (try Funcho Gourmet, practically next door to the hotel, and Chalet Vicente which is close to the hotel and on the way to Funchal). We did a few Levada walks and along to promanade to Camera Des Lobos which were great.

We're not overly fussy about where we stay as long as there aren't any problems (after all we didn't go on holiday to spend all of our time in the hotel room) so this one ticked all of our boxes.

Room Tip: I think higher floors will have better views

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your recent stay at Eden Mar hotel and for sharing your comments about it with so many other holiday makers.

It is rewarding to know that you had a positive holiday experience and we would be most pleased to welcome you again in a future visit to Madeira,

Regarding the view of the rooms of Eden Mar, they all have a sea view but depending on the location, there are rooms with a large sea view and others with not so large sea view.

Warm regards,

Muito obrigado,

Once again we have mainly only good things to say about this hotel complex

The food and service was very good in the restaurants. The whole place is cleaned regularly.

The entertainment in the bars was of high quality and the guitarist on March 5th was exceptional. The drinks waiter Robert was particularly excellent with his attitude and service.

The girls on the reception were very efficient and helpful. In fact the whole staff are to be commended for their service.

On top of all this we were lucky to be in Funchal for the carnival which was quite stunning.

One tip if you are going up in the cable car to the botanical gardens be aware that is very hilly.

Finally our only moan was that we had a regular nasty smell in our bathroom at night which was unpleasant in room 1314

That apart we thank all the staff at Eden Mar and the people of Madeira for a glorious holiday

Room Tip: Upper room with sea view

An excellent Hotel, with excelllent, friendly staff. The hotel is kept very clean, and there is a good choice of restaurants. There are four pools (two indoor and two outdoor) in the complex which is shared with the Porto Mare Hotel. The rooms are a good size and have basic cooking facilities if you want to eat in. Beds are very comfortable.Beautiful gardens to relax in.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the east side, then you get the afternoon / evening sun on your balcony.

Fourth visit to Madeira, and second time in Eden Mar : beautiful gardens, nice atmosphere, seems very well managed. We spent two weeks there, and it was too short... We were there for our 45th wedding anniversary, and felt like we were once again on our honeymoon.. (which we spent in Madeira & Porto Santo in august 1968). Eden Mar is highly recommendable, especially if you like to cook your supper...

Room Tip: Starting on the second floor, rooms xx34 to xx37 are sunny in the morning, whilst rooms xx03 to xx08...

Our first visit to Madeira was made enjoyable by staying at the Eden Mar Suite Hotel. A pleasant surprise on arrival was to be upgraded to a Junior Suite and the room we could not fault in any way at all. The food was good at breakfast, we ate out locally of an evening so cannot comment on dining there of an evening but I am sure it would have been a good dining experience.
All in all a great hotel, exceptionally clean and friendly staff.

This is my 2nd stay at the Eden Mar and again it more than lived up to the first visit. The hotel complex (why have they all got different names) is perfectly managed which reflects on every aspect of hotel life to make this a perfect holiday location.
Only downside would be the restaurants are good but overpriced considering the the abundance of good restaurants at better pricing near by and the room service is slow, often not carried out until late afternoon.
We have booked for the Residence (other side of the main pool) next year for a change.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for the “Super start to 2014” review posted on TripAdvisor and for let us know that overall you had a positive holiday experience.

The complex is composed by three different hotels:
Eden Mar the hotel with all units equipped with a kitchenette, the Porto Mare hotel with nearly 200 hotel rooms, and The Residence where you can find about 98 units among apartments and studios. The resort named Vila Porto Mare is the umbrella designation for the three properties with shared gardens, different pools, bars and restaurants.

Please understand that the prices of the many restaurants and bars located near the hotel are mostly family business runned where the costs structure has nothing to do with a complex with 13.000 square meters of gardens, the majority of the units with sea view and other facilities that need to be supported.

It will be a pleasure to welcome you again,

Warm regards,

Muito obrigado,

..
