We were there in the 1st week of April, and it would appear from reviews since then that we were just in time. The new management were just taking over while we were there, and the changes during our week were minimal, although it is fair to say that the differences in the breakfasts were very noticeable towards the end...

The breakfast was the best I've had compared to staying at any 5 Star hotels, I hate to say it, but the breakfast lasted us all day till dinner as everything... More

Dear Lindsy, We proudly took over the management of the Hotel Velamar. Changes are always times of doubt and of fear of the future. We are experienced hoteliers and our commitment is to improve the quality of the Hotel, by the way just ordered new TVs, new linen, kettlers for the rooms, and so on. This a challenge for us... 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

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
