Despite many reviews this is only an average 3* hotel. Our room was on the 3rd Floor with no balcony & fairly small. Large bathroom but narrow bath. Our room was not cleaned until after 5 in the afternoon resulting in us telling them not to bother as we were already back in the room. Breakfast ok with a choice... More

Enjoyed stay at velamar ... As other reviews said breakfast was plentiful with a nice choice with lovely views in the breakfast room... The only downfall was a gas main was being replaced at hotel so was not very peaceful around pool as work being done was alongside it....

Hello gardner1962. Thanks for your comment. Really, we did some changes at breakfast, we have pineapple at breakfast, we also have watermelon, orange, grapes and other fresh fruits. Before there was only one type of cheese, now we have fresh cheese also. Before the cakes were industrial, now, we make our cakes at the hotel. We have 6 different types... More

A most enjoyable weeks stay at the Velamar. We stayed in room 114 which was spotlessly clean and spacious. I loved the fact that a fridge, kettle, flat screen tv, free WiFi and hairdryer were all included with the room. We had a balcony which faced out onto the road but any traffic noise was never a problem due to... More

I stayed here for my first time in Aug 14, with my boyfriend, after reading all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Must be the nicest sun-holiday accommodation that I've stayed in. On arrival, staff were incredibly helpful - giving details of all the services provided. I noticed, on the way to our room, that the hall floors were carpeted... More

Great value for money. Good location for beach and bus links to albufeira, montechoro strip and villamoura. 10 mins walk from beach. Staff we're superb from bar staff to receptionists. Ask bar man to show you his card tricks! Receptionists very friendly and helpful. Great stay.

Have just got back from a 1 week stay at Hotel Velamar, Olhos d'Agua. This is a fantastic , clean and friendly hotel, Breakfast was lovely, taken outside with a sea view. Reception and bar staff very efficient and also friendly. Very good value for money , would return without hesitation. More suited to couples than families I think.
