we were met at the door by a very friendly lady who showed us all the important stuff about the apt even how to deal with the slightly difficult front door lock. the apartment is comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. the kitchen is extremely well kitted out!
there are a few options for walking to the marina and all of them take no longer that 15 minutes . perfectly placed with a nearby spar and tapas bar. also a pizza place that ill definitely be trying again ! ill definitely come back here and would have no problem recommending it to friends

“Beautiful apartment with huge pool”

Had a great time staying at the Varandes Do Sol apartment last summer. The location is very good and is quiet and peaceful yet still close enough to the beach and marina that you can walk there in under 10 minutes!
It also has a great communal pool area that kids (and big kids) will love.
inside, the apartment is clean, modern and well decorated with all of the facilities you could want! Definitely a home away from home.
I would recommend staying here to anyone and look forward to going back soon!

“A lovely relaxing holiday, great location and super accommodation”

person found this review helpful

Following several previous visits, we returned to Varandas Do Sol this year and again found that the service and attention to detail by the owners to ensure that their guests' holiday runs as smoothly as possible is in our experience second to none. The property is in an ideal location for us, being just a 15-20 minutes walk to Vilamoura beach and marina with all its fantastic array of places to eat and chill out. The amenities closer to the apartment are excellent with a well stocked local shop and several very good family run restaurants just a short walk away. The apartment is very well maintained with a super new kitchen and the welcome pack is a great touch, especially if you are arriving late in the day. We certainly intend to return in the not too distant future.

“Superb location great value for money”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We had a lovely relaxing Christmas and New Year thanks to SASA and their wonderfully located apartment for the old village and marina at Vilamoura and also well located for touring the Algarve. The apartment is nicely presented and has all the basics you would expect plus much much more. The welcome pack is a brilliant touch and very much appreciated after a long journey. We would recommend this or any of SASA's properties for a perfect location for touring or relaxing in the Algarve. Everything from booking online to being dropped off at the airport at the end was well attended to and very efficient.

“Absolutely Fantastic!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 for a stay in September 2012

This apartment is absolutely fantastic, and we couldn't recommend it highly enough! Not only the apartment itself or the ease of the location but the owners were so helpful providing any extra info we asked for and really going above and beyond to make sure our stay was a positive one. I stayed with my partner and my sister and we were so impressed with how well equipped the apartment was, particularly the kitchen - it almost felt a shame that we ate out as much as we did and didn't take full advantage of it.
We were out at the beach or the marina or sightseeing most of the time so it didn't really affect us, but the terrace is relatively small so that could be a drawback for some but as we were out and about or at the poolside it wasn't a problem for us.
We will definitely be booking with SASA again!
