Have just returned from a weeks stay at Eden Mar Hotel.
We were thoroughly impressed with the hotel and really enjoyed our time there.
The facilities are great with the rooms we had benefitting from a small but perfect kitchenette which, like the rooms themselves was modern and ultra clean. With the kids and 7 month old the fridge and microwave were a godsend.
The weather didn't quite match the hotel but this didn't hinder us too much, mini golf and boules on hand at EUR10 cost per person for the week along with small kids play area. Quite a few people had brought there own putters and balls which went under radar but hey if you want to save the Euro's why not?!
The free kids club weekdays for 1hr provided some relief and our kids enjoyed it immensely, Cindy the lady taking it seemed to enjoy keeeping them all entertained.
Pools were great, the indoor ones handy when the sun wasn't out (most of our week) and for the brave the outdoor pool was large and very clean with ample bed space dotted around. Kids splash pool also outside.
The grounds themselves are stunning, truly amazing. Bearing in mind you hardly see a gardener when there I can only imagine they are nocturnal!!
Reception staff were a tad frosty on occasions we had to deal with them owing to some building noise from below. That said, Silvia who had checked us in was very helpful so I'll put the other experiences down to being lost in translation.
Food was great, dine around programme was good, plenty for kids and adults. The buffet was as good a buffet i've experienced with quality over quantity seeming to be the method. A lot of hotels do it the other way and it's poor.
All in all i'd definitely reccommend the Eden Mar (and Vila Porto Mare Resort) for a vacation.... just check the long range forecast!
