“I didn't get "MUGGED" by the reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed here last week, brilliant. Beggars can't be choosers, you get what you pay. I paid cheap and got more out of it than I paid. All those people who complain must live in luxury houses and are perfect. Varandas your maybe not the fancy but your the working mans hotel, thanks again for the great time.

I cannot believe some of the poor reviews about this spot of (cheep) luxury. Stayed here for a few days all inclusive. The food was decent, the salad being excellent and very fresh. The meals catered for a wide variety of taste buds and the food was always of a good temperature.

Very good bar service and very friendly staff. There were no ripped seats like in some pictures and everywhere was clean. Also plenty of sun loungers so don't worry folks. I had to knock a point off as it does need a lick of paint in the room, again I didn't spend long in it.

Thanks for having us I just wish it was this time last week and still on holiday

We booked 2 weeks all in and one week room only. We upgraded the 3rd week to AI.( and paid).
What a mistake. This was, without doubt, the worst hotel we have ever been in. Facilities rubbish. - Food diabolical ( there was even a microwave in the dining room so you could heat your food to an acceptable temp!!!!) Clear your own table after 'dining'. Staff who didn't seem to give d---. No sign of any management authority. If you are thinking of going there, THINK AGAIN.

Room Tip: Just don't go there - the noise from stag and hen parties is excessive.

I spent a week at the Varandas and had a very pleasant stay. The room was very spacious and clean, we got fresh towels every day, the staff were all very nice and helpful, nothing was a bother to them. The location was ideal with the old town and the strip both within walking distance. I had read a lot of negative reviews before going and was very apprehensive but in the end I was pleasantly surprised. I found it to be good value for money. I was self-catering so I cannot comment on the food or the bar and when on holiday I prefer going out exploring the surroundings rather than staying around the hotel. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.

Stayed with a large group for 4 days and it was much better than the reviews on here would lead you to believe.
Rooms were bright and clean. Bar was well stocked and had good service. Food was fine, none of us went hungry.
Pool was clean with plenty of sunbeds.
Hotel is situated about a 15-20 minute walk to both the old town and the strip.

Not a great hotel - one of the worst me and my wife have stayed in its a shame to say.
We were on the 6th floor and found that the balcony door would not lock, so we asked to have the lock fixed at reception, and was told that someone would be round later to fix this. Nothing that night, so we mentioned it again, and were told that night - still nothing. Then we followed this up a third time, explaining the importance, and the receptionist said we were being silly and that no-one would break in. Needless to say we left after a week, and the door lock was still not fixed.
The food was very basic, you won't starve, but its not very tasty food. Breakfast was probably the best meal with english sausages.

Room Tip: The 3rd floor probably has the free wireless.

Omg heard the song baby think twice, well that's it think twice. This is no way a 4 star hotel. I would give it 2 stars. It's a dump in the sun ok for hen & stag parties but definitely no good for a romantic or relaxing break. The rooms are clean to a degree but very old and shabby. The food well it's time Gordon Ramsay went in and gave the food & dinning room a make-over. As for all inclusive they are a law unto themselves with that one. You wear a blue band stating all inclusive but your not. Albufeira is beautiful lots to see and do next time I will pick a better hotel you bet !
