We booked our much needed holiday at Vara's with trepidation (due to the various reviews) but had everyone who we met on our travels recommending it, (and trust me we met many). We decided to give it a go and were so happy we did. The location was stunning, probably the best on the island with everything you needed nearby. The rooms in the Beach House were simple but very clean with fresh sheets and not noisy like expected. We decided to treat ourselves at the end of our stay with an upgrade to their Studios on the beach and were really impressed with the room for that price range......everything private and just a few steps to the best beach.... really what more could you ask for. The couple next to us who were of older age had moved to Vara's from the otherside of the island as were not happy where they were....so we are just glad we made the right choice! Anyone who is expecting resort style accommodation should just do that, stay in a resort as you must remember Varas is budget style, and one of the best we have stayed in on our travels!
