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.
