“outstanding”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

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.

Well appointed appartments, quiet and beautiful location, spa, pool, healthclub as well as a restaurant. This is a place to come and relax and to play golf at the nearby courses which are wonderful. The service is friendly and the general ambience good - with nicely planted inner courtyards and covered walkways. Very ecofriendly garbage sorting system is simple to follow. Even if it was apparent that the head chef was not in residence when we were there out of season, the friendliness and service-mindedness of the restaurant staff adds to the experience.

Room Tip: View from the end appartments to the north-west to the distant mountains. This is also a quiet loca...

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!
