full of green plants and interesting sculptures
ants in the room
Varinda hotel was like a nature paradise! Something different and also special that attracts your feelings..
Fine surroundings - garden
not very close to the beach
amazing a really good experience the staff is amazing friendly the place is amazing with a lot of plant garden and nature a little bit far from the beach but you are in hollidays you can walk for 10 minutes !!
the restaurant staff were very kind and friendly. food was okay. nice view on bay.
accommodation ("family house") not as advertised on web (no resemblance at all to photos). basic wooden shack. no fly screens (full of mosquitos), hot (aircon yo-yo), smell of rotten wood, no daylight. bed collapsed in the night. stagnant water in the resort breeds mosquitos.
The smiling staff and the magic are both in every corner of that place. It is like being in the undiscovered garden, you explore its beauty day by day. I want to come back there!
Very friendly and helpful staff with a reasonably priced restaurant service. Really close to transport to the activities available on the Island and a lot of shopping options nearby.
Beds were a little hard and all the pillows were really big, Sounds good but if you are not used to it makes sleeping well difficult.
Very friendly staff, nice tropical garden, our grand deluxe bungalow was really large, the location of the hotel is very comfortable – 10 min to the beach trough the main Lamai street – all restaurants, bars, supermarkets are very close by walk (but Varinda is on the hill and you need to go upstairs). Island tours service at reception is very comfortable – we got almost all booked tours in 1-2 hour after booking in the morning. Laundry services are very comfortable with attractive prices. The room was clean but it’s bungalow and it needs to be ready to the appropriate conditions.
The monotonous breakfast during 8 days is not a big pleasure (in spite of I don’t pay a lot of attention usually to this ceremony). Towels were very old and grey all the time, so I was glad that I have my own one. It was lack of cleanser (the second piece of the soap we got on the 5th day after asking at the reception and they try to convince us that we would get it by cleaning) and it was impression that some bottles of them were refilled for a long time already.
Location was good for us, we enjoyed the bush surroundings and the staff were really friendly but not in your face. Room was two bedrooms, and large.
Room had no couch, shower needed to be hand-held as it was to low, bath could not function as a bath as the plug would not retract once pushed in.
