Wonderful to see blue skies and sunshine after an English winter.We had a room in the hotel on a timeshare exchange which was lovely.I have not given this 5 stars as the restaurant was very cold especially at breakfast.The waitress also got our orders wrong twice.The evening meals were quite expensive.

Dear Guest,

thank you for sharing your opinion about our recent stay at Vale d´Oliveiras.

We are sorry to hear that you found our restaurant cold.
Your comments are highly appreciated and we took already some actions to avoid this situation: more attention to the open doors and windows; attention to the air conditioning temperature.
We are also working on a daily basis together with our entire team on the details you have mentioned.

Looking forward to see you again at our Resort.

Kind regards,
Eduardo Peregrino

We spent 2 weeks over the Christmas & New Year holiday with 3 young children. The weather was fabulous with daily sunshine. Our apartment was very spacious and modern. It had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large terrace & garden area with sun loungers. It overlooked the pool & the kids playground- which was perfect for us. The hotel grounds are huge with very well tended gardens. We enjoyed many walks around with the kids. There are orange and lemon trees everywhere as well as olive trees of course. It is a very relaxing resort with excellent facilities. We particularly enjoyed the indoor pool, jacuzzi & sauna. We had a spa treatment each and our only regret was not to have booked more ! Staff is very attentive & friendly. Our children loved the kids' playroom and the outside play area. We ordered room service a few times after the kids had gone to bed, which was handy for us. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice: juices, fresh fruit, cereals, plenty of different types of bread, pastries, yogurts, cold meats, smoked salmon, cheeses, cooked meats such as sausages & bacon, scrambled eggs, mushrooms ... On a few occasions, we had omelettes, which they were only too happy to cook for you. I would recommend a car as the resort is a little far away from everything. There is a shuttle but it only goes as far the beach at Carvoeiro. Thank you to all of the staff for making our stay so enjoyable !! We will definitely be visiting the Vale d'Oliveiras Quinta resort & spa again in the near future.

I can not say enough good comments about our experience at this resort. From the moment we got in contact about organising out wedding here, the communication and service was second to none. The wedding day was so well organised and all the staff were so friendly, welcoming and highly professional. The grounds and accommodation are beautiful and well presented. We were thrilled to spend our wedding and holiday with 25 family and friends who also enjoyed there experience at the hotel. Everyone wants to go back!! I have never felt more reassured and looked after in any other hotel, for a reasonsble sized resort they really know how to give you the personal touch. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, food was incredible and facilities excellent. Definitely booking again for this year.

We have just returned from a five night stay. Very relaxing, staff so friendly and attentive.We had a hotel room, however there are very spacious apartments too. The breakfast was very good with a vast selection. As it was quiet we did not eat in the evening, but i would think the food would be of a very high standard
Golf courses near by. I would suggest a car. Definately feel refreshed and look forward to another visit.

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.
