Having just returned from a trip to this hotel I can honestly say it is the best 3* I have stayed in abroad and fantastic value for money on the B&B basis. Our room was large and clean the en suite was clean well maintained and very big! We had a free fridge in the room (see previous comments) and... More

I stayed here with my friends for a week and i'm still impressed. Rooms were clear and its furniture was very good. The bathroom was outstanding for that money. We arrived late (after midnight) but the staff were OK with that. They were very kind and helpful during the whole week. If I asked for an extra blanket I got... More

My wife and I had a 5 day stay and were very impressed. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the whole hotel is spotlessly clean. We had a large well furnished room with an excellent bathroom. Breakfast was self service with a lovely range of cereals, cooked food, fruit , ham, cheese, tomatoes and breads. The swimming pool... More

Stayed here during what must have been the worst weather I have ever experienced in Portugal, wall to wall rain for the 5 days we were there! We still enjoyed ourselves though mainly due to the hotel being a little treasure, staff were very pleasant and helpful and the place was kept so clean, why can't UK hotels be like... More

OK, good stuff first I guess. We were there on business so this hotel is a great base - close to everything you need and SOOOOOOOOO cheap off season. Breakfast included, croissants and jam of poor quality but many people do not care - I do so was disappointed. The rest of breakfast was good though. The rooms are large... More

Thew rooms at Velamar are a bit basic, but considering the price you pay & the all inclusive continental breakfast(which I would give 10 out of ten ) overall, it is a good value hotel, close to supermarket & beach as well.

The Velamar Hotel was recommended to us by a neighbour and I am glad that they did. What a absolute gem of a hotel. Accommodation is kept spotless. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Just had a very relaxing week at the hotel and we will be returning.

Stayed three nights in March. We chose this Hotel thanks to the previous reviews. They were not wrong. Excellent Hotel at a bargain price. Cannot fault it or the staff working there. A short bus ride into Albufeira or about an hour's walk. Lovely walks along the beach and cliffs towards Villamoura.

Stayed in January and it was all others have said it was and there were no ugly surprises. Staff make you feel like family and the breakfast was amazing with a very good selection of everything we are used to eating. The main thing for us is always the level of hygiene at the hotel we are staying at and... More
