Dear bertpaul On behalf of the entire Velamar Boutique Hotel team I would like to thank you for choosing our hotel and taking the time to write this review. We are delighted to know that you had an enjoyable stay and that your experience at our hotel lived up to your expectations. I just woould like to clarify that pool towels are free of charge. You only have to pay if you want to change towels during your stay. We are a Green Hotel, with the Green Key certificate and it is our aim to make people think twice before deciding if it is really necessary to change towels so as to avoid throwing away this precious asset to all of us that is water. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kind regards,

Dear inessafian, First of all we would like to thank you for choosing Velamar Boutique Hotel, and for the time spent on writting us your feedback. It is very surprising to see some of the comments. For example, the breakfast room only starts at 7h30am, and the staff only starts working at 7am, so noise coming from the kitchen at 5am, isn't really possible. About the coffee, we understand that some people find it not very pleasant, so we are changing the machine and type of coffee. We have received some less positive reviews about the coffee and as our goal is to guarantee a nice and pleasant stay to everyone, we are always trying to improve our service. Our staff is definitively one of the highlights, and it is always with pride that we see them mentioned. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future so that you can see the improvements in our service for yourself. It will be our pleasure to ensure you have a comfortable stay. Kind Regards, Vera Gomes Graça - Hotel Manager

Dear Craigen123 Thank you for your interest in Velamar Boutique Hotel. From the hotel to the strip is about 2,8km (half and hour walking, more or less). To old town is about 7km, so I would recommend to get a taxi or a bus. In case there is something else we can help you with prior to your arrival, please do not hesitate to contact us. Kind regards, Vera Gomes Graça - Hotel Manager

Hi Lucy, its 10min walk, with a few shops, good restaurants and take-away, large supermaket etc about 5mins walk away on the way down into the main area. So I think its best of both worlds, your near everthing but staying in a nice quiet part of the town. If you go out the front door however and turn right, walk up to a petrol station and turn left at it and go downhill to a wonderful beach, as the one in the town is small. Bit of a walk uphill back but well worth it ! Enjoy M
