***Overview**** Upon arriving we had moderate expectations given the price we had paid. We were pleasantly surprised that the room was fairly modern. I would say the bed was slightly on the hard side but the room allowed for a comfortable stay. One of the hotels bests strenghts is clealiness, the place always looked clean. The breakfast is fairly basic...

We stayed at the Velamar for a week in June. The hotel is very clean and the staff are excellent. We spent every night in the bar before heading out for dinner and the bartender couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The rooms are spacious and very clean. We had fresh towels every day and our room cleaned every...

Spent a smashing week here in April.Lovely, relaxing hotel which feels better than a 3*. Breakfast was excellent and service spot on. Pool area was small but spotlessly clean and pleasant.There are restaurants and bars on both sides of the hotel so plenty of places for lunch and dinner.This hotel would not be suitable for teenagers as it is very...

Travelled with partner, two friends and father. Our second visit to the Velamar and was not disappointed. The rooms and communal areas are all clean and well maintained. The continental breakfast is lovely with a nice selection of fresh fruit, breads, pastries etc, etc. Staff are friendly and helpful. Would go again, its a fairly quiet area on the outskirts...

This was our second stay at the three star Hotel Velamar at Torre da Medronheira on the eastern outskirts of Albufeira. We were travelling there by car and preferred a quieter area that was on the outskirts of Albufeira rather than right in the centre of town, or bang on the beach. It is also fairly centrally located along the...

This is a great, cheap, clean 3 star hotel. It's not luxurious by any means but it does the basics really well. Great staff who were very helpful, nice breakfast. Big clean rooms with nice balcony. Free wi-fi. And nice bar/cafe. The downsides for me were the location (oldhos d'agos) which is about an 8euro taxi journey to oldtown/Newtown. The...

We came back to the Velamar for the second time in two years. This establishment in Olhos d' Agua is on the edge of a small residential area away from the main part of the village.
