Velamar Boutique Hotel
Ranked #7 of 152 Hotels in Albufeira
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We arrived back from the Velamar last week.
It is an excellent hotel with extremely friendly and efficient staff.
Our room was on the road side but due to the triple glazing this was not a problem. You also get the sun on the balcony all day. The balconies could do with a lick of paint and new furniture but this was the only negative I can think off.
The rooms are large and comfortable, with spotless white sheets and towels.
The bar area had a nice atmosphere and the drinks were well priced,
We ate out at several local restaurants, in particular the 3 Marias and Cantinho Do Mar restaurant bar, (Turn right as you leave the hotel), The Cantino is run by a father and son and their 'tourist menu' is only 7 50 euros. Extremely excellent value with lovely food.
There are 3 beaches within a 15 min walk and it takes about 30 mins to walk to the 'strip'
It was a very relaxing holiday and I am sure we will be back to the Velamar very soon.

Room Tip: Road side rooms get more sun

What great value for money this hotel is. Although positioned on the main road, traffic noise was never a problem. The rooms are of a very good size(the bed was huge and very comfortable) and the cleaning was done each day of our stay.
The reception staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful with directions and other information. Breakfast is taken on the top floor with the option of eating outside and enjoying the view. Plenty of choice too, with lots of fresh fruit, meat and breads.

We have stayed at the velamar now for 5 years and cannot fault it ok the beds are sometimes a bit hard but they are all new mattresses so they have to bed in on arrival we were greatest by valter who is so friendly all the staff ate so friendly even the cleaners who now recognise us. The drinks in bar are slightly dearer than other bars but you expect that in a hotel the owner even greater us this year he does remember you if you go more than once best rooms are pool view rooms which in evening is nice to sit on balcony with glass of wine while the sun sets. The hotel is far enough away from main town but easy to reach by taxi ordered at reception overall another fantastic holiday one warning though if you have children it is not the best hotel as there is not much around it for them but for quiet holiday you can't fault it breakfast is continental which you can have as much as you like of, almost every one that stays here comes back again and again.

We expected more, but when we think about the price we paied it was good. The advantage was friendly and very helpfull personell. We paied 48 € from the airport with taxi, and 40 € with a recomended taxi from the hotel when we went home. The breakfast was minimalistic but alwys fresh. No warm dishes, but the fruit and tomatoes was very good.

Myself and my husband stayed at Velamar Hotel from 19th - 26th October 2012.

The Hotel itself is very clean, our room was cleaned each day and towels changed (which were a lovely smell).

The Breakfast in the Hotel was very nice and simple. Each day there was Cereal, Fruit, Yogurts, a great selection of Bread, Cheese, meats and tomatoe.

The snack/cafe area was really nice and was a good price. The Bar area was very comfortable and had Wi-fi was was fantastic.

The area where the hotel is was quiet ( i assume becasue we were at the end of season).
There are about 5 restaurant right beside the hotel, the only one we ate in was Tiffanys Indian. I would highly recommend.
The cafe next to the hotel was really nice and very cheap for luch and a few drinks. Glass of wine 1 euro and a large beer 1.50 euro
The beach is about 20 minutes walk from the hotel, there are some lovely restaurants at the beach (our favorite was Acqua).
We took a taxi to the "strip" each night which was around 4-5 euro and to the old town was 7-8 euro. I would recommend a visit to the old town, the shops and stalls were great.

Overall this hotel was a excellent choice..
