We travelled as a group of four ladies for the weekend 5th-8th July.
Upon arrival we were allocated two adjacent rooms which stunk of sewerage and drains. After complaining we were then allocated a lovely 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment. The lights didn't work in the kitchen, but we didn't use the kitchen as we were all inclusive.
Food: As verandas is only a small hotel don't expect a wide variety of food. We were more than happy with the choice. There was a full English every morning as well as fruit, cereal etc.
At lunch we just ate salad as breakfast was more than adequate! Evening meal was also ok. There was usually salad, a rice/pasta dish, meat and fish, cakes and ice-cream.
Drinks were out on the table for you to help yourself to, even had sliced lemon & lime and ice! Plenty for everyone!
The bar was a bit busy at 11am when it opened, but that's to be expected! They serve fresh coffee which is why service could be a little slow! Tip for the hotel though-maybe it would be better to put the bottles of water for all-inclusive guests to get themselves?! It would save half of the queues!
So why the negative comments? Yes there were ripped seats in the bar and restaurant. Yes the sunbeds need changing, but there was lots of lilos to use for sunbathing on! The staff are worked really hard so forgive them for not smiling-they're trying their best!!
There's a taxi rank outside the shopping centre across the road. About 4euros to the old town, which was brilliant! Mc donalds, pizza hut, kfc all in the locality so if you don't like the food go elsewhere!
To sum up, we had a really great weekend in Albufeira. Varandas was a good choice in terms of distance into town. Would we stay there again? Maybe, if the place was smartened up a bit.
