Lovely hotel - as others have said, cleanliness is their priority. Towels changed every day, bed made - good breakfast usual continental ham, cheese, breads - cereal, fruit salad, melon, orange segments - toast, scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon, beans, tomatoes with cheese/basil, yoghurts - great coffee machine. Nice little pool, new sunbeds. Downside - not much atmosphere in the bar,... More

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights having been delayed 24 hours due to the French air strike. From the moment we arrived until we left, everyone was friendly and welcoming, particularly the reception staff and the barman Jose. We agree with all the other positive reviews and the only negative points were the fridge not staying on when... More

Amazing location, breakfast plentiful, waiting staff at breakfast, superb. Beds a tad hard but you can sleep. Swiming pool clean, bar staff very polite and welcoming. Prices in line with local bars. Very clean rooms, housekeeping a bit hit and miss but okay. Kettle and cups provided so you need to purchase tea, coffe, sugar and milk to have a... More

Myself and my wife have just returned from a fantastic 5 nights at the Velamar. We are always very careful when booking a break as my wife has MS. We arranged flights with Monarch and booked special assistance as my wife can only walk short distances. Flight was excellent and we were greeted by yellowfish transfers at the airport, we... More

We stopped at the Velamar Hotel 10/7/14 to 14/7/14 just a quick break to find out about Portugal. I thought it was a Best Western - no! but not a problem, it's a really well run place with a great breakfast, and extremely polite and friendly staff. Rooms come with A/C and are quite big. Near the beach (about 15... More

We stayed at this hotel for 10 days at the beginning of July. First impressions were it was clean, the staff were lovely and welcoming. We asked to move rooms as we were facing the main road and my OH couldn't sleep as he's a light sleeper. The receptionist Andre was lovely, understanding and helpful and we moved that day.... More

We stopped at the Velamar Hotel 26/6/14 to 4/6/14 and having never been to Portugal we were unsure what to expect. So glad we went and also that we stayed at the Velamar. The hotel is in a quite area of Olhos d'Agua, with bars, restaurants and a supermarket within a few minutes walk. Jollies is just a few doors... More

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
