This hotel was exactly what the reviews say. Clean friendly in a lovely area. Turn left to. a beautiful fishing village, right will get you to Albufeira. There was 16 in our party and all say they would go back. From the cleaning of our rooms daily to the lovely fresh breakfasts all was spot on. Ta .good auld Ryan air also came up trumps.. the marras on tour...

Room Tip: We were all situated on different floors and views no complaints from us..

There is nothing to fault at this hotel. We expected it to be good because of the reviews and we were not disappointed. Everything was clean, staff were friendly and room was lovely. We used Yellow Fish transfers and they were excellent too. Book it, you will not be disappointed. Excellent value, excellent holiday.

As the title suggests, this is our third time to the Hotel Velamar and Olhos De Agua, over the last three years.

We travelled as a family of five (children of 15, 12 and 7) and although we arrived on a later flight we were met at reception with a smile and made to feel very welcome. As it was early in the season, whilst the resort was fairly quiet we found the hotel to be reasonably busy, which is always a good sign. We stayed B&B and left breakfast as late as we dared - served to 10:30 - before making our way to (for some mornings) a very busy service, not to worry though as there was always a table or one came available, which was cleaned and prep’d very quickly. Plenty of choice at breakfast for all of us: cereals, juices, yoghurt, savoury meats and cheese, or for our kids croissants and cakes!

There was some maintenance going on at the hotel, for example the odd broken tile was being replaced by the pool area and cleaning the exterior walls, though none of this caused any inconvenience.

We went to a couple of our favourites: Soft Caffe with Bruno and his family and Nelsons (which is a bit further up into Olhos), both of which offer reasonably priced snacks and light meals. We also visited the clean and sandy beaches, we suggest Praia Marie Luisa is the better one.

We find this location suits ourselves, it is a fairly quiet area and a good base if you want to explore this part of the Algarve.

Overall, we enjoyed our week and our stay at the Velamar and thoroughly recommend this place - it is safe, cleaned daily and delivers a standard of service above the three star rating.

Room Tip: Road side rooms can be a little noisy from the traffic

We stayed at this hotel in November 2012. It was recommended to us by a Portuguese man. It was very cheap, clean and comfortable, not luxurious but ideal for a short break. Easy access to local restaurants, would recommend it.
