Just a short write up about our stay which we enjoyed at Varandas de Albuferia
40 mins from the airport
Off the main road, quiet location 3* not 4*as claimed. Bit dated in places needs revamp. Clean and tidy though.
20 mins walk to the old town. If you go self-catering PLENTY of restaurants to choose from.
10 mins walk from the strip again plenty of bars to choose from
Suitable for couples, not many children there…thankfully
Nice beach but too far away from the hotel unless you are going to make a day of it.
Sightseeing bus stop 5 mins walk from hotel.
Supermarket 5 mins walk away if go self-catering and fast food a plenty again all within walking distance (McDonalds/KFC/Pizza hut)
Reception staffed 24 hours. Free wi fi in reception area only.
Pool – average size pool, VERY cold though, deep at one end…not many umbrellas for shade and the sunbeds are in a bit of disrepair…we found a lot of people had left behind blow up beds, which we laid on instead…pool bar…11- 11 snacks available
Restaurant - breakfast 8-10, lunch 13-1430, dinner 1830-2100– limited choice(only due to the size of hotel) but you never went hungry
Library in room at the back of the restaurant (found by accident) plenty of books to swap if you finish yours.
Staff - most were friendly except the barman not sure of his name pedro i think, he was miserable...think it was something to do us being AI so we didnt tip!!
72 rooms – ours was quite large with 2 twin beds, kitchenette with sink toaster, crockery/cutlery, kettle/fridge/hob, ensuite shower, toilet etc. beds made every day and clen sheets and towels throughout the week
All in all a comfortable stay…the hotel is ideally located but there are a number of steep hills nearby so if you are not good on your legs you may struggle…Although we had no problems at the hotel we did hear that a number of residents had had mobiles and jewellery stolen so I would suggest locking valuables away like we did, but dont let that put you off as i never managed to find out whether they invited the thief by leaving valuables on display
