Extremely well presented hotel, friendly staff, and good food. The prices were very reasonable too. Only downsides were the swimming pool was absolutely freezing and there was a bit of an ant problem, they were dead and floating in the pool. I guess this is due to the time of year. I would definitely stay again.

Spent a week at the Velamar Boutique Hotel. Helpful staff, clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was very good and also had a large car park. Supermarket and good restaurants within walking distance and two very nice beaches. We would stay here again.

Having stayed at the Velamar we were very pleased with the refurb that has taken place. The reception, bar area and rooms are all very good. All that is bar the bathrooms.

The Hotel staff, were excellent, very friendly and helpful especially Isabella. The breakfast buffet was plentiful with lots of choice. The reception and bar are decorated to a high standard. The rooms are well equipped, but a bit rough around the edges, some of the decoration needed attention. As other people have said the pool area is quite small and... More
