Delightful stay, we were checked in quickly and efficiently and welcomed with a free drink at the comfortable bar. All the staff were pleasant and helpful . There were plenty of sunbeds around the pool area and it was very laid back, quiet and relaxing. No queues for breakfast which was taken in rooftop restaurant with wonderful views over 360... More

Stayed here for a week in June after staying at a 4* hotel in Albufeira the previous week. Although a 3* hotel the new management are implementing improvements, making it more like a 4* hotel. I hope they are successful. From front desk to bar to breakfast room all of the staff we met were friendly and couldn't do enough... More

We arrived at the hotel on the evening of 27 June. Upon arrival we were greeted at reception by Andrei (apologies if this is the incorrect spelling!) Andrei was very friendly and welcoming and we were also given 2 complementary drinks tokens - so my girlfriend and I were made to feel at home very quickly! Our room (no. 103)... More

Just returned from Velamar, chose because of reviews, which were mostly spot on. We arrived to a clean and welcoming hotel, with efficient and helpful staff. Throughout our stay the staff were visible and helpful, the cleaning staff seemed to clean at all times of day. Our rooms were spotless and towels changed regularly. Good value for a 3*. The... More

Greatest value in Albufeira. When we tell friends what we paid, they don't believe us. Tremendous hotel with a full breakfast and a pool. Wow! Awesome restuarants right next door and a nice walk to the beach.

Stayed in the Velamar in late June 2014. For a 3* Hotel I thought this was very good and very reasonably priced. We mistakenly thought we would have a balcony on the room as we were under the impression from previous reports that all rooms had balconies. However we were obviously mistaken and were given a room on the top... More

My wife and I stayed at the Velamar for the third time and the first since the change of management. The hotel continues to impress and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a base in the lovely Olhos D'Agua area. Due to the French air strike, we needed to stay an extra night at the beginning of... More

We have just returned after our third stay at this hotel yet again we found everything to the usual high standard. The new management team are obviously trying to improve things, for example introducing a selection of hot food at the breakfast buffet. The staff are willing and helpful at all times. They do have a hard act to follow... More
