Went to the Vela first two weeks in May seen the bad reviews but went with an open mind on arrival 01.30 we were greeted by the night manager very pleasant we also meet Martin the barman who informed us the bar was open but neglected to tell us we had to pay not that i minded this would be a common occurance with Martin anyway the hotel is in acentral location next to the fountains few minutes from the beach shown to our room the room was on the first floor used the lift just to get the bags up the room was very clean of a good size the bathroom was very big clean had a walk in shower sometimes the shower unit can be a bit small this was not the case the room was cleaned daily.Food was no more or less than i expected after reading some of the reviews sometimes i think we expect to much from these hotels for what you pay i found the food good 5 or 6 choices always something for us to eat the pool was of a good size clean did not have a problem with getting a sunbed you can see a lot of work has been put into this hotel the staff were great very helpful can not fault them our waiter Mhemet was very good i realy hope they keep improving this hotel as a new company has taken it over as there are still a few issues i hope they address the main one fer me is a price list for the drinks & what you can & can't have for free in every hotel before i have not had a problem my wife drinks Brandy Martin informed us it was not included as int was not local but branded which i do not have a problem with it was not branded & was free with your meals or in the foyer on my first night i was paying 5 lira for a glass of beer from the pump then went to 7 then 9 i complained about this to Martin but was ignored stoped drinking in the hotel after 11 after this & would not go back to this hotel until this issue has been adressed and a proper pricing policy put into place ,the only other downside to this hotel are it hold over 200 people and only 40 sunbeds ther is a lack of seating in the foyer as one day it was raining and all the guests had to move inside and no where to sit and no entertainment of any sort fittnes center was not open apart from these little inconvenienceis this is a lovely hotel , very clean and tidy very spacious rooms friendly and helpful staff apart from one bar staff member i would have rated this hotel much better but the bar experience spoiled this .
