Beautiful hotel in good location

This is our 12 time staying at this hotel under three different management. Now being classed as a boutique hotel couldn't wait to stay there this time and certainly was not disappointed. Reception staff very friendly and made welcome on arrival. Hotel has been completely redecorated and looking very modern. Outstanding breakfast with a great variety to choose from. Rooms cleaned every day and fresh towels supplied. Love this location as there are great restaurants and bars in this area. Would definitely recommend this hotel for quality and comfort.

Much more than a 3 star

A beautiful hotel - very tastefully furnished and immaculately clean! We stayed there early August for 9 nights and had an amazing time. We loved the hotel decor and ambience; the breakfast was excellent - fresh and plenty of it with the hard working staff always replenishing the buffet tables; whilst the pool seating area was quite small, it was more than adequate and there was always plenty of beds left at all times of the day with towels available for a small deposit which you changed every day from reception. If I was to be negative at all it would be that if you are looking a hotel close to the beach then it is a bit of a hike up and down a hill in the heat - a courtesy bus to the beach would be a very welcome addition to the hotel! It is too far out of Montechoro or old town Albufeira to walk and taxis in and out are hard to get as there is only one taxi company and they are always busy! Having said that there are some lovely little restaurants beside the hotel where we ate on quite a few evenings!

Beautiful hotel with lovely staff.

What can I say about the Velamar. It's a beautiful hotel at a reasonable price. Completely modern and spotless. Roomso cleaned everyday. Wifi is free and very strong. Pool bar has any cocktail you can think of as well as beer and fizzy drinks. Olhos D'Agua is one of my favourite places I ever ever been too and the Velamar is 10 minutes from the beautiful beaches. Will definitely be coming back.

The best thing about my stay was...

Everything. Can't fault a single thing.

Scouse view

Lovely hotel fantastic staff that go out there way to help you, nice rooms cleaned everyday, air con, safe which is 3euro per day, pool ok not big enough to swim in sun loungers ok pool bar, hotel bar, breakfast on upper floor decent choice of food lovely restaurant staff, nice decent hotel don't be afraid to ask them anything all tours and booking done from staff. This hotel is no good for children nothing for them to do, ok for babies This hotel is a good 50 min walk 10 mins taxi from the new town, the old town is 20 - 25 mins longer 15 mins from hotel, the old town is definitely the best place to go for beach and nite life, the strip is good for the noisy nite meals and tons of bars, the place itself is brill we have just spent 10 days 2nd 12th July loved the whole holiday albuferia is fab 😊😊 the zoo marine in fantastic about 17 euros by taxi from hotel bus route amen u find the times all in all loved it all

Lovely hotel but noisy

This was our first time at the Velamar it is a lovely hotel and spotlessly clean staff very pleasant all really good but found it a noisy hotel due to the wooden floors mostly noise from up above also a lot of work being done in the hotel which is fair enough needs to be done but was started early and still going on between 6 and 7 in evening we were even wakened one morning at 7.30 ish with someone playing the hotel piano and then music being piped through our landing which never stopped until my husband went down to reception at about eight thirty when we relised it was piped music after all we are on holiday to relax !!! However this is a lovely hotel and would go back again but ask for the top floor so no one above

The best thing about my stay was...

Breakfast on the top floor was a perfect start to the day looking out over olhas de Agua breakfast was also enjoyable with enough choice

Still a great little place to stay

We have stayed here on a few previous occasions and were slightly wary about the new ownership. It's a pleasure to say that things have got even better than before. The pool area has been refurbished and is more welcoming. The rooms are still of a very good standard and the hotel is kept very clean. The breakfast now has a hot option, which is a bonus, with the continental selection still very tasty and plentiful. The only slight downside is the distance to the main beach, more for the killer climb back up the most direct route. The journey is worth it as the bars and restaurants down there are lovely to sit in during the day. The restaurants just beside the hotel offer excellent, home cooked food at amazingly low prices. A tourist menu is available at 7.5 euros including wine, especially good at Adega Do Ze and Cantinha Do Mar. Overall, a very relaxing place to stay, and can be a real bargain depending on the season. We only paid £36 per night in June, and will definitely return.

A Gem Of A Hotel

Booked the Velamar on the strength of all the great reviews and not disappointed at all. Top room with spacious balcony, lovely staff and fantastic breakfast. Would recommend to anyone and will return at the earliest opportunity. As stated in previous review the cleaner also left our balcony door unlocked after we'd locked it prior to going out, on 2nd floor so not as crucial but something for the hotel management to address all the same.

The best thing about my stay was...

Great view from breakfast room and able to eat outside in the sunshine too, a real bonus!
