What a lovely time we had

Well my husband and I came back on Monday the 12th after two glorious weeks in Madeira, staying yet again at the Eden Mar. Fourth time there and we will go back.

The hotel was as nice as ever, lovely staff, lovely breakfasts (we both ate toooo much). Plenty of sun beds, umbrellas (although some were a bit wonky and needed replacing). Some of the evening entertainment was great, especially the blues band that we saw twice over the two weeks.

We ate out every evening returning to some of the restaurants a couple of times.

The lido area is looking nice and the new road works on the main road caused no disturbances for us, actually the new road made walking up the hill to the Forum Shopping area easier ( mind you the last time we were there, I was about 6 stone lighter so may have made walk seem easier too :) ). I have kept receipts from restaurants that we went to so I could do a write up on them when I have a bit more time, hopefully next week.

Glad you had a good time stcrispins. I've not stayed at Eden Mar but I have walked round the complex and the gardens are very pretty. I've also been there a few times to see the Black Dog Blues band and also Sangre Latino (both very good).

Good to hear about the new road. I assume it's still used for traffic both ways so that once the top road is open things will improve even further.

The new road did seem to be working very efficiently when I last saw it - and I guess it will only improve when the "old" road is re-opened to make it a one-way system - although I guess the top part will remain two-way for part of its length.
