Went for a 4 night stay with my friend as she is getting married and we wanted a chilled out few days in the sun. And that is what we got a wonderful relaxed few days in a spotlessly clean hotel in a lovely part of the world. The room was spacious, spotless and cleaned each day. We had a fridge and air con which were free. We paid for the use of the safe at 3 euros a day. The only small negative is that there are no tea making facilities in the rooms so I took a kettle as I do like to have a drink on waking and before bed. The breakfast was lovely plenty of bread croissants etc and condiments fresh fruits cereals yoghurt and some hot options. You can also have a glass of champagne if you wish, which my friend and I did. The breakfast staff were very friendly. The breakfast room is lovely and clean with beautiful views. We only sat around the pool one afternoon very comfy sun beds and new parasols which arrived while we were there. They were doing some work near the pool on that afternoon and as an apology the management gave everyone free drinks which I thought was a lovely touch.our room also overlooked the pool.the bar area is very nice comfy sofas and chairs it was very homely. The barmen were lovely, friendly and chatty. There was a karaoke one evening which we didn't stay for as had already planned to go to albufeira but it did look fun. I'm not sure how often there is entertainment. The reception staff greeted you everyday on going out and coming back and even the cleaners in the corridors spoke and smiled.I cannot fault this hotel at all from the clean rooms to friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble they were approachable and keen to answer any questions. The area is quiet ideal for rest and relaxation the beaches within walking distance are beautiful. Lots of little shops to have a look in. There is also a supermarket nearby. There are some lovely restaurants close to the hotel reasonably priced and lovely food. Overall our mini break was 5/5 we will definitely be back together for a girly mini break or with our respective partners. Thankyou to all the velamar staff for our enjoyable stay just wish we could have stayed longer.
