A well landscaped resort, the hotel took its security seriously. As you enter they disinfect your tires, your feet, shoes, whatever, they have those disinfection matts. they take your temperature, and have social distancing signs everywhere. Masks were required. All the staff wore them. Food was ok, we had BBQ pork with apricot, which was excellent, the shkmeruli was not. Worst shkmeruli in the whole country, and the BBQ trout, which was ok. That's hard to screw up.  We also had margaritas which tasted more like a dry martini. They aren't good at them, rims were unsalted, and you couldn't taste any lemon.  The mojitos were pretty good. The rooms were tiny, but ours had a nice balcony. They don't make the rooms up each day, no fresh towels, they don't reload the free instant coffee, just expect them to ignore you once you've checked in. Oh and they give you one tiny cheap pillow per bed. The pool has a nice view of the caves. Super cold, as was the jacuzzi.   I think it was a jacuzzi. It might have been a busted jacuzzi. The women staff were great, attentive, the men, not so much. What was really annoying was that some kid waiter came over and chastised us for having some fruit we brought with us to eat by the pool.  He didn't ask for our order, didn't seem to want to help us. They would not serve us by the pool but served the Georgian guests. Meanwhile, the pool was littered with empty cups and garbage Georgian guests had left behind.  In the room you could hear everything, floors and ceilings were made of cardboard. When it hailed and rained,  water dripped in the room. Staff was pretty good in the restaurants. But they could not stop the local guests from cutting in line, in front of me. Watch out for the family cut, one adult stands in line at the restaurant or buffet, then when you get close, they let in the other 5 people in their fam to cut right in. The place was welcoming but the other guests  weren't. People seem to like to hoard chairs and keep them empty, and not let you take one if you needed it.  A guest who cut in front of me also parked his car so I couldn't leave. Had to call security, and when they finally found him, he gave me a stink eye while he moved his car. The place had its pros and cons. The cave was definitely a pro, it was a close by, nice cultural site, but you need to be in shape to climb up there. Views were cool. The resort should have had some entertainment, a singer, a band something, Instead they played the same song over and over, with the squeaky dining room door as a chorus. I've been visiting Georgian resorts for 4 years, they gave a great location, but aside from the BBQ pork and apricot sauce, nothing draws me back.

The best aspect of Vardzia Resort is its location: Above a river valley, overlooking mountains and the Vardzia Caves complex. The grounds are lovely with many flowers. Unlike many hotels in Georgia, there are nice swimming pools. The on-site restaurant provides nice meals with a friendly staff. The resort is clean and well-maintained. What keeps the place from getting five stars is the rooms: By US standards, they're Spartan: thin sheets and towels, tiny pillows, few amenities, a shower that leaks.

There's not much choice of lodging near the Vardzia cave complex. This one is a special treat. Luxury all the way. Two swimming pools. Spectacular views of the caves across the valley. Amazing beds and bath. First class.
