One of the best hotels at the Algarve coast if you compare service, cleaniness and food to the cost of a relaxing stay at this hotel. Even if its location is a little out of the centre of Albufeira, there are good retaurants a very short walk from the hotel. Where in Europe can you get a very tasty 3... More

Once again. We cannot fault the Velamar hotel. From the moment we arrived we was greeted at reception by a lovely woman who checked us in early. We noticed some changes but it's all good. The pool area is looking very nice. The breakfast is nice and Simone and Ricardo are still smiling as always. Jose costa is still doing... More

A little late, visited over Christmas This is our 6th time at the Velamar, they may have changed the name but the personnel are still excellent in the service they provide. As previously stated there has been a change of staff, but we were recognised by the check-in who we had only met in May, it goes without saying Luciano... More

Good hotel for those on a budget No night porter for drinks after bar closed Breakfast lacked imagination Staff very friendly and helpful Bit out of the way if you are looking for nightlife and other bars to visit although the there are a couple of nice restaurants close by giving good value for money

Been going to Velamar for years and have never been disappointed. Had a minor initial hiccup when we arrived but all was resolved extremely quickly. We had some snacks in the lounge this time and they were better value than the restaurants outside.

Local beach and nearby beaches are stunning. The staff here can't do enough for you. Would definitely go back. Giving it a 5-star but it's a 4/5, as... More

We have given this hotel 5 out of 5, not because it is perfect but because of the nice staff, cleanliness and the breakfast. We were given a room on the first floor (no balcony as we had booked a basic room). The room was large and very clean, nice comfy beds. A clean fridge, kettle and cups (bring your... More

Pros: value for money, clean, good choice breakfast, large bed, fridge and kettle (but no tea, coffee, milk) in room, 24hr reception, friendly helpful staff, pleasant lounge area, free wi-fi, bar drinks/snack food reasonably priced. Cons: room tired and needed decorating, basin in bathroom crazed and needed replacing.
