The whole resort complex is huge. There are not only regular hotel rooms where I stayed, but also bungalows with private green area.
I stayed in Vale d'Oliveiras off the season (December), so there was no public entertainment, but still I could use small gym (much too small for pro's, but equipped well enough if you want to use run track, stepper, indoor rowing or dumbbells), small indoor pool (own swim cap required) spa (massages available from 20€ - special offer (50% off) - to 100 something € for 60-90mins session) or tennis court (10€ for one hour including renting two rackets and balls). Moreover, it must be great place for golfers, because golf fields surround the resort. I don't do golfing, so I have no idea if such area is large enough for reasonable golf play. The complex is in the middle of nowhere (6km to Lagoa, 6km to Portimao), so the car is a must. However, if you like to hike, the surroundings are amazing! - green Portuguese countryside.
My hotel room was facing tennis court and rural areas behind. Very nice view, especially in the morning sunrise. The room was clean and tidy, but had some signs of use (tiny scratches on walls). Flat TV (absolutely too small for the room of this size! I may be wrong, but think it was 19") with some Portuguese channels plus CNN, BBC package, Eurosport, some German channels too. The bed was comfortable and large enough for 2 persons. The bathroom large with bathtub (no independent shower), bidet and Azzaro perfumed cosmetics. Big terrace. A/C and heating working well.
The English spoken staff was very friendly and always ready to help.
I did not use resort bar or restaurant.
