Eden Mar Hotel

The elegant, sea-facing Eden Mar Hotel has a pool that’s set in tropical gardens and a first-class dining scene. Plus, every room comes with a sea view.

There are shops and restaurants right on the doorstep, but the hotel has four of its own restaurants for when you’re feeling peckish, including a traditional Portuguese place.

There are two pools – one indoors, one out. There’s also a luxury spa at the sister hotel next door where you’ll also find tennis, mini golf and more. On an evening, there’s plenty of live music.

Resort Summary

Funchal was a core part of the early settlement of Madeira in the 1400s, when brave expeditions from Europe first began pressing ever further west from the continent to see what else lay in the world beyond. As a result, colonial architecture makes up much of the original elements of Funchal even today, although there’s plenty of modern flavour as well.
