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.

My best mate and I booked a week away through lowcost holidays, after reading around on Trip Advisor we decided the Velamar was the best hotel option, and we were not disappointed! We arrived quite late (after 10pm) at the reception via a shuttle bus which picked us up from Faro Airport and had us at the hotel around 40... More

Booked here for ten nights through Hotels.com. After reading previous reviews we weren't disappointed. Charming receptionist greeted us and the place smelt really clean as soon as you entered the foyer. Our room , 205 was on the right handside of the hotel and was spacious with an enormous bed. Rooms are triple glazed so once sleeping you cannot hear... More

we went on holiday at the beginning of March 2014. I wrote a review then but it seems to have disappeared.

We are really looking forward to coming back and we are hoping some of the staff will be the same. It... More

I could go on all day on the merits of this hotel.

The hotel is nice and the staff are very pleasant, reception is run by Luciano (General Manager), Ana and Susie who were helpful. We had emailed... More

Just back from a quick 3 night break in Olhos. Stayed at the Velamar which was lovely and lived up to the positive reviews. It doesn't look particularly attractive from the outside but upon entering it's lovely with a nice modern reception and bar area. Everywhere really clean & fresh smelling. The 3rd floor breakfast room is quite small but... More
