We stayed here last year in October and we loved it . The staff were so friendly and polite. The hotel was very clean and tidy and should be more than a 3 star . The breakfast was good and a few different bits to choose from. Snacks in the afternoon were reasonably cheap . One very good restaurant to... More

This was our 2nd stay at the Velamar, and the changes they have made have all been worth it, especially the new poolside bar!!!!!!! They have also revamped around the pool area aswell, taking out some of the tiled floor, and replacing it with a nice lawn and flowers, it looks so much nicer & brighter. Inside the hotel looks...

Breakfast was good although not excellent as some people have stated ( would prefer a greater choice of cooked items ) however it depends what you would like to eat if you prefer more continental style...

Staff where incredibly nice all the way through our stay, this was our first family holiday with our 8 month old, and they couldn't have been nicer to us, EVERY staff member had a massive smile when they saw us, and always interacted with our little boy, which he loved! Hotel was spotless, our room was cleaned every day, and... More

This is a superb hotel with great accommodation and very helpful staff. Breakfast on the roof is a real treat. We will certainly be back. It is close to shops, restaurants and bars and Albufeira is just about within walking distance although there are plenty of buses.

We have stayed here on a few previous occasions and were slightly wary about the new ownership. It's a pleasure to say that things have got even better than before. The pool area has been refurbished and is more welcoming. The rooms are still of a very good standard and the hotel is kept very clean. The breakfast now has... More

OK the second floor hallway carpet needs replacing , OK the cups are too small for a decent cup of tea at breakfast ,OK there was a noisy flapping/rumbling noise from above our room on windy nights and OK the beer was...

Stayed for 10 days, friendly,efficient and smartly presented staff throughout the hotel. Very relaxing atmosphere and nothing too much trouble. Nice pleasant 10 mins walk to town centre, a large supermarket only a few minutes walk too. Several good restaurants virtually on the hotels doorstep if you don't fancy the larger choice in town centre and leading down to the... More
