I have just spent an enjoyable week in Madeira.

I travelled from the airport to Duas Torres via the SAM bus (free for TAP Portugal passengers upon arrival, but €5 for the return) which stopped opposite the complex.

I 'stayed in a 'twin-bedded' spacious apartment which had stunning uninterrupted sea views - just couldn't believe my eyes (and all for under £35 per night). The apartment was spotless, so I have no complaints. I also enjoyed my regular morning swim and often had the pool to myself.

I used the complex's courtesy bus when possible (it's only a minibus, so it's best to arrive about 15 minutes before the departure time, in order to get a seat). I often walked back to the complex, stopping off at gardens enroute.

Before travelling to Madeira, I kept finding articles which said there were no beaches or only one. This is not the case. I sent to a beach in the centre of Funchal, right next to the pier and I also found similar 'small' beaches.

I would definitely stay in this complex again and currently planning next year's visit.

A friend and I recently stayed at the Duas Torres hotel after choosing this as our base when visiting a friend. The Hotel has a great location on the cliff top overlooking the sea. Our self catering room had a hob, microwave and fridge - more than adequate for us. The room was cleaned daily and to a high standard. The pool area was nice and for the main part very quiet - ideal for the 3 of us to get together, chat and relax. Opposite the complex is Forum da Madeira a modern shopping centre with a good supermarket on the lower ground floor and some excellent clothing and retail outlets - at very reasonable prices. There are a number of bars and restaurants in the area and as most nights we walked down to the Casino Da Madiera - we discovered a good selection of both local and international cuisines - with a variety of price ranges - something for everyone.

If you're planning to visit Funchal (which is a beautiful resort with lots to do) make sure you visit the Casino Da Madeira and take in it's fantastic dinner show, Viva La Diva - highly recommended and a great way to start your evening.

Duas Torres was a great base for us and inexpensive, if you're not expecting too much then this hotel comes highly recommended - we booked with hotelclub.com who offered a very easy online booking service.

The room was okay, nothing impressive, but at that price I guess you can't expect more. I enjoyed the stay and the view over the sea was amazing. The staff were very quiet, but kind. You can easily walk to the inner city from the hotel and there's a shopping mall just across the street.

We stayed for one week at Duas Torres in Funchal and were satisfied with the hotel. The sea view from the balcony - as well as from the spacious pool area - was very nice. Even though there’s a few kilometres to the centre of Funchal, the location is quite good - there are no other hotels or high buildings to disturb the view, there’s a bus stop right outside the hotel, and there’s a modern and convenient shopping centre (with cinemas and restaurants as well) right across the street. In the evening and night the area’s rather boring with almost no bars, but that seemed to be a general problem in Funchal – that there’s not much nightlife. The room was bright and spacious, and though the furniture (two single beds) was a bit out-of-date, it was a pleasant place to stay. It’s nice that there’s a tennis court at the hotel, but it’s not so nice you have to pay 5 euro an hour to play. In the lobby there’s a computer with internet connection, but again - it’s a bit expensive to pay 1 euro for every 15 minutes online. Apart from minor things like this, Duas Torres is a recommendable hotel.

  • Liked — The view from the balcony and from the pool area
  • Disliked — The furniture in the room could have been more modern

Yes the hotel is tired but for value for money cannot be beaten. We paid just under £30 a night (the view alone was worth that) Rooms basic but clean, staff not overly friendly but they do their job well. Free mini bus into town if you want , it's about 40 mins quick walk though very pleasant if you take your time and stop for a drink along the way. Madeira Forum opposite with lots of shops,places to eat and a supermarket. Pool bar serves very good priced snacks and drinks, large beer 2e. This was our 2nd visit to Duas Torres but it won't be our last.
