          8.8

          I chose hotel because of previous reviews that were really good and was very satisfied with my choice. Big and clean room, excellent breakfast in the dining room with fantastic ocean view, and the most friendly staff I have ever met..

          No wifi in the room, only in public places...

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The staff were amazing. The front desk staff was so accommodating and helpful. The bartender was great as well. Everyone was so friendly and the price was great. We loved our visit to Portugal and can't wait to come back. We would stay again at the hotel Velamar.

          Nothing. It was all great

        • Couple
          9.2

          Excellent value for money. Spotless clean. Friendly helpful staff. Delicious fresh breakfast. Air conditioned rooms. Nice bar with good selection.

          Double room is two single beds pushed together, not so comfortable. Wifi only in lobby.

        • Couple
          6.2

          We booked this hotel because we found it reasonably priced and it suited our needs. During our vacation we stayed in Lisbon and we wanted to go to the Algarve for a few days. For this it was a perfect place to travel and to see other places.

          The breakfast wasn't that great. The coffee was really below standard. We stayed at the lowest floor. Because of the single beds which are put next to each other it made a lot of noise when the guests in other rooms moved the beds. Also the ventilation system made a lot of noise in the morning. It was like an airplane taking off. But overall, for the price, it was to our satisfaction.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Given the rate we got through Booked.net, the hotel represented excellent value for money, especially as it included a buffet (continental)breakfast. Also, the room and hotel as a whole were clean, there was free Wi-Fi in the lounge area and free parking. There were many shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.

          The hotel did not warrant its full published prices and, had we paid the full price, we would have been very disappointed. The facilities were basic, there was nothing special about the rooms or the balconies and the TV had a limited choice of english language channels. There were no tea/coffee making facilities and there was also a peculiar odour in the bathroom due to the extractor fan not working. We noted that this issue was raised by the previous occupants but not acted upon. The pool walls did not look clean and the water was not heated. Also, although we were kindly given a seaview room, there was traffic noise from the road below, even with the balcony doors and curatins closed. Also, our room was below the breakfast room and we often heard the noise of chairs and tables being moved. The walk to the beach was about 20 minutes.

          The hotel staff were so friendly and extremely helpful. The room was really clean and decor was very tasteful

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Cleanliness, friendliness, buffet breakfast and price of rooms and services. We are regular visitors.

        • Couple
          7.4

          The room was cleaned every day, towels changed and the bed was enormous. A fridge in the room kept a bottle of wine nicely chilled for a night cap drink. The continental breakfast was great with real fresh orange and nice views from the roof location. The drinks from the bar were reasonably priced with a friendly service.

          The bathroom was a little tired, however clean and a great powerful shower. Only 1 English channel on the tv in the room (sky news) was a bit of a let down in today digital offerings. A little noisy from 7am from rooms above sounded like they had clogs on, but that's all the negative points I could say.

        • Couple
          7.8

          We booked these well ahead so got a great rate. Went with low expectations but staff were great and very helpful. Location between Albufeira and Falesia beach is not bad. The breakfast (included as part of room price) was good, and had a fair variety.

          If you dont have car, the town centre (Strip, Oura beach) is a 2 mile walk away.

        • Couple
          9.6

          I don't have one complaint! Traveled all around surrounding cities by rental car, loved the breakfast, great coffee! Would recommend to anyone! Staff was outstanding and kind!

          Bed was bit hard for me, however slept great!

          This is the 3rd time we've stayed at the hotel and would return again in a minute. Very friendly, helpful staff, exceptionally clean, lovely continental breakfast and amazing value for money.
