Suite Hotel Eden Mar is on the western side of Funchal, near the beautiful Lido Promenade - a quiet location with easy access to the beach and a short bus ride to the historical centre's picturesque cobbled streets. You'll find yourself meandering through subtropical gardens, marvelling at the ocean views, lazing in the sun, or cooling off in the inviting pools.
All of the hotel's bright and spacious rooms have a private balcony to relax on. The Eden Mar offers bed & breakfast board basis, giving you the flexibility to choose whether to enjoy one of the hotel's restaurants (payable locally) or make use of your kitchenette provided in every room and suite (there's a supermarket just 200 metres away too), or enjoy some of the many local restaurants. The hotel is part of the Vila Porto Mare resort and benefits from all the resort's facilities, including a good selection of bars and restaurants.
Lush gardens and ocean views
Facing out over the sea, the hotel sits in 13,000 square metres of subtropical gardens - home to more than 500 species of plants. Open to be enjoyed by guests at any time, the resort also runs a weekly guided tour of the gardens to help guests discover its many hidden secrets, including the orchid corner and the collection of medicinal herbs.
A great option for families
The resort's five swimming pools will keep even the most active of children entertained, and with children's menus available in each of the restaurants it's easy to keep them fuelled too. In peak holiday weeks there's also an activity programme for children between the ages of 4 and 12 that offers traditional games, painting, mini-golf, table tennis, and board games.
For adults there's water aerobics, yoga and Pilates, tennis, mini-golf, snooker, and pétanque (payable locally). And if you just want to relax after a day of walking the levadas? There's a superb spa too (payable locally).
