We stayed in the Velamar for one week earlier this month, and we could not have been happier. The staff were so welcoming and polite and helpful. The hotel itself is absolutely spotless, I have never been in a hotel so clean. The room was a good size with a lovely bathroom and a small but nice balcony. The towels were changed every single day and the beds made up and the room tidied. The bar downstairs is lovely and again absolutely impeccably clean, the staff there were so nice and friendly, especially Adrienne, he was very helpful. Very good value too, myself and my partner ordered to coffees and two brandies (which were at least doubles, possibly triples) and the cost came to €6 in total! The pool area was nice, but a bit small, but we didn't use it anyway, we went to the beaches every day, the nearest is about 10-15 mins walk. There is a fabulous portuguese restaurant just across the road we would highly recommend, the food was superb and the staff excellent, it's called O Assaiolo (I think), we ended up going there three nights as the food and service was so good. Overall, the holiday was a huge success due to the hotel and the lovely restaurant across the road.
