A small hotel and very personal ,friendly service, Everyone wanted to accomodate you.
The rooms were spacey even with a cot in it and had a fridge which helps.
The pool was just the right size never over busy.
We were located between Olhos da Aqua and Albufeira and was walkable or a a short bus or taxi ride if you prefered , besch was approx15 min walk,
Olhos is small and quaint wheras Albufeira is more a established resosrt.
We went to the resorts in the day but with a baby it was great we also had a good selection of varied restaurants locally , regional cuisine and Indian which was excellent Tiffanys it was called..
We booked our flights , hotel and transfer as components and found we gopt a better deal, The hotel was a good price and we dropped on with the fights as we booked early with Jet2 ,,
I was nervous about the transfer most as witha baby you don't want to be stranded, Was a great company yellowfishtransfers.com met us with our name on a board , big spacey car and most important a babyseat.............We payed on line and they gave us a bottle of wine as a welcome was a nice touch .The driver was friendly and gave us lots of info during our half hour trip the price i remember was good too, Beware very cheap transfers are usually a schuttle and you go all over before you get to your hotel you pay individually too so by the time you pay for all the party its the same as a private but not as swift an easy..
We feel that velamar is one of those hotels that every few years you will go back to it, we loved it..
