Reopening of Velamar

Review by davidalan14 Seaford, United Kingdom

We’d booked to come here twice in the last 2 years but the travel restrictions and associated extra costs put us off Portugal until this year when it relaxed it’s requirements and we’re very pleased we finally made it here. I requested a top floor double room in advance by email but on arrival at 10pm on a rainy evening we got to our roadside room to discover it was a twin and after enquiring about the possibility of changing next day to a double it became something easier said than done so we stayed put and the roadside was not noisy as we’d feared sitting on our balcony when the weather permitted ( March is very changeable weather here on the Algarve) The hotel had just reopened after lockdown so everything was clean and fresh and was kept that way by the excellent housekeeping team and breakfast on the top floor with great views was a super start to the day with the staff and guests observing cautious measures throughout the hotel. We used the pool a couple of times when sunny and not out exploring and it was nicely laid out but with noise from an adjacent property ( perhaps a building or repair business) relaxing was only for the hard of hearing! The hotel is located on the Albufeira road and we actually walked there 3 times in an hour catching a bus back but they don’t run after 1945 at this time of year so checking the local timetables is important. In the other direction it’s about a 15 mins walk to the lovely Olhos beach with plenty of bars, cafes , shops and restaurants along the way and even a large supermarket nearby. And travelling further afield we rented a car to travel all the way along the Algarve to Cape St Vincent in 1 hour 25 mins and used local buses to Faro city and Vilamoura for sundowners at the Marina with the bus stop very close to the hotel. It was lovely to get away from the UK for a Spring holiday and we’d certainly return to Hotel Velamar in Olhos D’Agua.

A return visit …

Review by JoBri67 Wakefield, United Kingdom

Just back from a 5 night stay at the Velamar using a voucher from pandemic they had given. Stayed in one of the suites and it was lovely with sea views from the bed. No balconies to the suites and be a use it was out of season a sensible price...

Staying in August again for a few days & will not be a suite that’s for sure but would want a balcony anyway. It was just as lovely as previous pre pandemic visits and as always spotlessly clean. Staff friendly and efficient.

So Glad To Be Back

Review by ClaresandPeter Greenhithe, United Kingdom

Returned to this hotel (1st time since March 2020 have been moved to sister hotel on 2 previous bookings as was closed) and omg was it nice to be back..... yes it was. All staff from reception, cleaners, breakfast restaurant and bar staff are just so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for any of them...

Hotel bar shut at 7pm as hotel only been open 1 week and not many guests (can't blame them and will be open later when the season picks up ...but I did miss my night cap) thank you all at Velamar fir a wonderful stay we will be back later in the year

Amazing, in difficult times

Review by hardraine Cockermouth, United Kingdom

We had an amazing stay, lovely room, clean with friendly staff. We were unfortunately (for all) at the hotel when Coronavirus restrictions kicked in. Everyone, staff included were not sure what would unfurl but dealt with it a brilliant...

It was my birthday and when i returned to my room there was a bottle of fizz, a lovely cake and a lovely note. What a great touch. Hope to return, hang on in there x Thanks
