We have just returned from the Velamar on the 9th of May and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, the staff were friendly and nothing was a problem for them, the rooms were cleaned and towels changed on a daily basis, the breakfast was very 'healthy' which was a nice change from a fry up every morning it was fresh bread cold meat , cereal and fruit with a selection of jams etc. We really enjoyed eating at a restaurant called Ambrosia Nectar which is down near to the beach and the food was excellent, we did not have any complaints about the food in general and it is a fish lovers paradise , although if you have never visited Portugal before be prepared to wait as the food is cooked fresh to order. We visited Jolly's restaurant which is next door to the Velamar and really had to wait a long time although the food was good when it did arrive, I must say was little bit like Faulty Towers but the staff made you feel more than welcome and by the end of the night all the diners were talking to each other! !. The public transport was good too and the staff at the hotel were happy to give you a timetable and a map if required . The only thing i would have to say is that the pool area may get a bit crowded in the busier months as it was not very big, but wasnt a problem for us. This was our first time in Portugal and will definately return to this hotel .
