We had a weeks break here just to get away at the end of July. We booked the self catering option but really did not intend to cook much. Hotel is rated at 4 star but I would say really this would be 3 Star. Did not experience any problem with the room or staff and rooms were clean and... More

Booked here for my hen weekend in June 13 after booking for 14 women aged from 22 to 50's looked deeper into reviews. I then became worried and assumed the worst and told them all to expect this. On arrival at the hotel were told rooms not ready and I had booked all for all inclusive which they said only... More

Firstly we've stayed next door at paraiso de albufeira & we loved it definitely a 4/5 star but this hotel verandas de albufeira was a let down. This is our 1st review of a hotel & we've stayed in a few but this 1 is shocking as advertised as 4 star. But no where near. Could go on 4 ages... More

This complex has a lovely reception area and very helpful staff. The pool area and bar is also very nice. The self catering rooms were however disappointing. The kitchen utensils were useless. We had to buy bowls and mugs and there was only one pot, not that you could really cook anything as there is only a microwave and in... More

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a weeks holiday here. We were slightly worried after reading all the bad reviews, safe to say if you want a 5* pay 5* prices. The apartments are situated in the middle of both towns and a nice 10 minute walk to each, rooms cleaned daily. There was everything you need for... More

Hotel is kept clean and rooms are cleaned daily, towels changed 3 x per week and linen 1x per week, the food was a little repetative ie scrambled eggs every morning in fact breakfast never changes, this having been said my partner is a picky eater and never complained once. The sunloungers by the pool are few but we managed... More

I have just returned from a week in this hotel.We were sceptical as we booked last minute and reviews here were mixed. I'm glad to report that we had a great experience in this hotel. Yes, it is basic but that is what we paid for! Rooms were clean, comfortable and had all we needed for self catering. The free... More

I've just come back from a four night break in Albufeira, we stayed at the Hotel Varandas a choice guided sifting through the wide range of reviews for a vast array of hotels in this very lovely holiday town. The Varandas was on arrival not what I'd call a wow factor hotel, we opted for self catering namely because we... More
