A large group of us visited and stayed at the Val d'Oliveiras Resort for about a week in October for my boyfriend's sister's wedding! It feels so long ago now but very fond memories remain. The staff could never do enough for you, they were friendly and great fun to be around. My fella and I stayed in the hotel and the room was immaculate at all times. Although beware if you are sensitive to hard beds, as I prefer a soft mattress. Most of the others stayed in the apartments which were stunning. You felt right at home the minute you walked through the door. Even though we had a couple of days of dodgy weather the weekend for the wedding was perfect with bright blue skies and sun beaming down. The only real negative was that it made the UK a very dull place afterwards! Can't wait to go back! Oh yes! And the food was out of this world, breakfast especially! ;D

This trip to Portugal was the first for my Mother, son and myself. Our main purpose was for my lovely nieces wedding which was held at the hotel. It was a breathtaking day, so magical and beautiful memories to treasure. This was also helped by the way the staff were so invloved with the day and everything went without a hitch, and all the staff were so accommadting, happy and friendly.
Also to was fact we were in such beautiful surroundings, the hotal was just amazing. Everywhere was so clean, our rooms were decorated with such taste , and it was all just perfect!!

I would definately be going back top visit the hotal again.

I cannot praise the site or the staff highly enough. My wife and I stayed for a half-term break in the "Ponentine" apartments, whose balconies overlook the pool area: they are spacious, well-finished and very well-equipped. When self-catering doesn't suit(!), Room Service and the delightful Olive Tree Restaurant more than substitute.

The staff were all extremely friendly and accommodating and I cannot fault the facilities or general area. Oh all right, if I have to find something: you might be well-advised to bring a bathing-cap if you want to use the indoor pool; they are mandatory and the "house" ones cost 6 euros apiece - that is the closest I can come to a caveat!

A delightful place to stay.

Room Tip: Have only tried the "Ponentine" apartments so far, but can recommend them highly.

We so enjoyed our stay.
We used the Gym, indoor pool, tennis, table tennis spa and restaurant and all were excellent. We stayed in one of the cottages - which was well equipped. The food at the resort was outstanding, and we all especially enjoyed the wonderful breakfast, although lunch and dinner were good too!
All the staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful.
The age range for our group was 13 - 74 and there really was something for everyone.
We were going to hire the bikes but ran out of time.
The location of the resort is great as it is off the beaten track yet within easy reach of everything you could need - Faro airport, beaches, supermarket, small and large towns, restaurants etc.
We will definitely make another trip!

We visited Vale d'Oliveiras with a large group of friends for a wedding and have had the most wonderful trip! The 1 bedroom townhouse we rented was stunning - immaculately clean and beautifully decorated throughout, a properly equipped kitchen and gorgeous surroundings. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The area is beautiful, with the backdrop of the mountains and close to Ferragudo and Carvoeiro. Taxis to local towns were very reasonable and, despite appearing to be quite remote (with those amazing views), the hotel is actually really well located for access to restaurants and bars. We hired a car, which meant we could explore the Algarve a bit more, but think you could easily enjoy a visit here without a car, Can't wait to visit again!

As a family unit, we travelled to Portugal to witness and celebrate our son's wedding. All 27 family and friends, were accommodated at this five star hotel and we were not to be disappointed. From reception, to the beautiful rooms, the restaurant and the pool facilities, the hotel is situated in an idyllic location in this popular Algarve area. The hotel was spotlessly clean and ALL staff were polite,resourceful and extremely helpful, highlighted by the assistance they gave my son and his new wife, following an unexpected illness. The surrounding gardens are well maintained and ideal to relax in if the poolside is not your thing. Following my wife accidentally falling in the shower, within an hour, an additional handle was fitted in the shower to assist her during the remainder of our stay. I found every aspect 5star'

My sister had her wedding here in late October. The organisation of the staff was superb as 27 guests stayed in various parts of the hotel. Whilst my sister opted for a two bed apartment which was superb myself and my girlfriend opted for the slightly cheaper double rooms with a view of the Spa courtyard. If you don't mind splashing a little extra cash I would say definitely go for the apartments but the double rooms were just as good.

The restaurant food was lovely and I can imagine in the hight of summer the pool bar area would also be great.

A bit of a trek from the airport but the hotel can organise transfers, otherwise you are looking at €65-€70 each way in a taxi.

On the day of the wedding all of the staff were genuinely engaged and excited about the day and literally couldn't do enough for us.

A lovely place, shame we couldn't stay longer and we will be sure to go back!
