My husband and I had booked a one week stay at Eden Mar.
When we arrived, the hotel was full and we had to move to the adjacent but superior Porto Mare, plus we received vouchers for 4 free meals at one of the hotel restaurants.
Our room was the biggest we ever had in our life, and included a large balcony offering a stunning panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean.
Food, though buffets, was nor repetitive but was just of enormous amounts and very delicious.
The hotel is an enchanting place with several gardens, pools, bars, restaurants, located in the "Lido" complex of Funchal, i.e. there's a supermarket and lots of shops and restaurants around.
To visit Funchal, we used the hotel shuttle (free of charge).
The other days, we explored this island, which actually is a tiny paradise, with lovely landscapes (though no beaches).
Overall, it was the best vacations and the most romantic and relaxing experience we ever had in our life.
