We returned to this hotel after having enjoyed a stay here two years ago. It was the same nice hotel and great staff. It's not exactly "on" the beach as you have to walk for almost a kilometer to get there. They do have a nice pool, but it can be a bit hard to get a spot on a...

We stayed as a family in is hotel during July and cannot say anything bad about it. I had checked reviews before booking and most were positive and we were not disappointed. The hotel is small and therefore more personal with very pleasant and helpful staff in all areas. Rooms were big and we had a good pool view. They...

My husband and i stayed here for 4 nights mid July. We read the reviews before we booked and were not disappointed. The hotel was very clean and staff friendly. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the road, this can get very busy and noisy, but room had triple glazing which really does keep the noise out. Room...

Had a fantastic 2 week break at the Velamar, staff couldn't be more helpful, from advice on local activities to borrowing a plug adaptor for the entire stay.

Great hotel, very clean, and super breakfast. There are some great restaurants right next to the hotel, where you can have starter, main course, desert, wine and coffee for 10 eur, and it is great food. Don't take the bus to the Strip, a cab is much faster, and also cheaper if you travel 3 or 4. (Approx 5 eur...
