The hotel was lovely, clean, friendly and the staff were welcoming. Our rooms were tied and immaculate after the maid came in. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great when we were there so didn't have time to try out the pool, however lots of restaurants nearby to get food. The

Dear Tara68, I would like to start thanking you for choosing Velamar Boutique Hotel, and for spending a few moments of your day to write us about your stay with us. It is always a pleasure to read all our guests feedbacks, but especially those where our staff is mentioned. It is with proudness that we read they were very helpful and friendly. Unfortunatelly the weather this year didn't help to make the annual maintenance of the building outside, but we are very happy to keep on improving our services and the looks on the inside. Hopefully we will get the pleasure to welcome you again. Kind Regards, Vera Gomes Graça - Hotel Manager

Dear bertpaul On behalf of the entire Velamar Boutique Hotel team I would like to thank you for choosing our hotel and taking the time to write this review. We are delighted to know that you had an enjoyable stay and that your experience at our hotel lived up to your expectations. I just woould like to clarify that pool towels are free of charge. You only have to pay if you want to change towels during your stay. We are a Green Hotel, with the Green Key certificate and it is our aim to make people think twice before deciding if it is really necessary to change towels so as to avoid throwing away this precious asset to all of us that is water. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kind regards,

Dear Craigen123 Thank you for your interest in Velamar Boutique Hotel. From the hotel to the strip is about 2,8km (half and hour walking, more or less). To old town is about 7km, so I would recommend to get a taxi or a bus. In case there is something else we can help you with prior to your arrival, please do not hesitate to contact us. Kind regards, Vera Gomes Graça - Hotel Manager

Hi Lucy, its 10min walk, with a few shops, good restaurants and take-away, large supermaket etc about 5mins walk away on the way down into the main area. So I think its best of both worlds, your near everthing but staying in a nice quiet part of the town. If you go out the front door however and turn right, walk up to a petrol station and turn left at it and go downhill to a wonderful beach, as the one in the town is small. Bit of a walk uphill back but well worth it ! Enjoy M
