Due to the budget price we paid for our stay at the Velamar via the Easy Jet Site, we were a little apprehensive to say the least. However from the moment we arrived we knew we had booked a true bargain. The staff were extremely helpful & friendly and our rooms were spacious and more than adequate for our needs, the beds were big, although a little firm, and we had a fridge, hair drier & TV (BBC News). The bathroom was modern with a bath, shower, bidet, toilet and basin all refreshingly clean. Continental breakfast was included and this turned out to be of high standard with enough choice and quantity to see you through most the day. The bar was open 24/7 again with friendly service in a comfortable environment, all in all this was by far the best value hotel we have ever stayed in. The hotel has several bars and restaurants within easy reach at reasonable prices and the nearby beaches are well worth a visit. We hired a car from the airport so could explore the area with ease. if you are looking for a value for money break you won't beat the Velamar, we shall definately stay there again.
