What can we say, never ceases to impress. Coming here for years, it just keeps improving. Small touches here and there that make the difference. Staff as always, friendly, helpful and always smiling. As special word of praise for Luciano who over the past year or so has embraced his new role and made a good experience even better, and... More

Stayed May 2015 with my fiancé for 3 nights, lovely hotel, friendly service, clean and tidy, good breakfast. Only a short walk to shops, restaurants , bars and beach. If your looking for lively nightlife this won't be the place for you. Perfect for a quiet vacation relaxing by the beach. Plenty places around to eat out at.

Breakfast is served on the top floor or on rooftop terrace Plenty of choice hot or continental you can even enjoy a glass of fizz with your breakfast... More

Nice and professional staff of the hotel, room and bathroom ok, large parking yard, good location (beach 10 minutes by walking, shopping centre and restaurants 100-500 meters around). A bit noisy from outside (loud enough traffic)

An absolutely fabulous hotel. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Arrived at 1.30am and was greeted by a very nice reception. The room was very clean and spacious. Throughout my stay one of the gentleman on reception could not have been any more helpful. I initially booked a 3 night stay, but because I felt so relaxed and happy... More

The greatest asset to the hotel though... More

Have stayed at the Velamar a few times now and it is always very good. Clean, efficient and great value for money. Breakfast is very good indeed with panoramic views. Service is very good also. The bar is very expensive and hence always empty as far as we could see. Lower the prices and it would be better attended, and... More
