I stayed at this hotel December 2013 with my Fiance. Staff are very attentive and friendly, very good English too. Our room was spacious, however we did not get much sun on our balcony so i advise asking for the side facing main road as you get the sun all day. Breakfast was great everything that you need eg, juices, coffee, cereal, fruits, meats, cheese, yogurts and bread. Great transport links outside of the hotel, however I would advise hiring a car if you are wanting to see the whole of Algarve as we did spend quite a bit on buses. The bar in the hotel is also very nice and drinks are reasonable cocktails 5 Euro and large beer 3 Euro. I must recommend the Soft Caffe which you turn left out of Velamar, great sun trap and very cheap alcohol. The only negative point about this hotel was the fact it advertises double bedrooms however it was 2 single pushed together and the bed was also quite hard. However I would definitely recommend this hotel and would return in future.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms are better which face side of road, great for sun all day

Went on a 5day holiday with a friend and from the moment we arrived to the very second we left we loved our stay. Staff are genuinely friendly and always attended to our needs. Our room and on suit was clean and cleaners would make sure everything was tidy each day. The breakfast was nice, serving bread with options of meats, cakes, croissants, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, juices and fresh fruit.
The location is ok as there are a few restaurants nearby however if you would like to go clothing shopping or to a more busy area you would have to get the bus or a cab. People are really friendly and I would go back. The hotel was a highlight.

well everyone has said it but this really is a great place to stay. spotlessly clean and its one of those hotels you just feel at home immediately.staff are great .breakfast scrummy and the location is so convenient for exploring or if you want to stay put its within easy walking distance of village and beach. even out of season there are loads of local restaurants with a wide range of food at reasonable prices.

Room Tip: 2nd floor for best views

This hotel has to be one of the best small hotels Ihave ever stayed at.The rooms are just great and are kept beautifully clean by the staff.We had a great view of the swimming pool even though we were on the ground floor,we did email the hotel before we arrived to ask for a balcony room.Breakfast is taken on the 3rd floor and has great sea views,the food was really good.The bar at the hotel was excellent with great prices.All the staff were happy in their jobs and had great customer service.This hotel I can thorughly recommend to you and you will not be disappointed.
We used Yelowfish transfers from Faro which were excellent and very prompt.To reach the beachs of the area,the nearest one would be 20 minute walk,the town beach a 30 minute walk,if you have walking difficulties think of another hotel if its the beach you want.
All in all 5 out of 5 for the the Hotel Velamar and its staff.

Room Tip: email and ask for a balcony room
