I did my research on the Algarve as we were looking for a holiday on a budget, stayed for a week 5-12th June and paid £213 each for all inclusive, some of the reviews on here did put me off however I was not expecting the ritz with what we paid, firstly may I point out that I am the worlds worst flyer and was petrified before we even got to the airport! so the last thing on my mind at this point was the hotel we were staying in (just had to get through flight first!!) barring my horrendous fear of flying this holiday was fab and the transfer from Faro airport was under an hour and a pleasent journey, Hotel Varandes is not a 5 star hotel,however it is clean, welcoming, rooms are cool and have all amenities you will need for your holiday, staff are friendly, food we thought was very good, local drinks all good, (try their version of baileys very nice, oh and port!) the pool area is fab, nice terrace, the hotel is ideally placed in the middle of Alburfeira and takes about 15 min to walk to old town, (which is very pretty indeed and loads going on) and about 25 min walk to the strip, much more going on for younger ones etc ie partying, only minor downside to hotel Varandes i would say is on a weekend can be rather noisy as they seem to get lots of stag and hen parties stying but didnt bother us too much as were all a good bunch simply having fun, so to sumerise ignore the bad reviews and go there it is very good value for money! Enjoy...Ps on a personal note due to my fear of flying home had a few too many brandies and missed the bloody flight home so ended up paying for another flight and spending double on what was supposed to be a budget holiday... aw well at least we got home and live to tell the tale.... uk hols for me from now on lol :)
