“AB FAB! CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

My family and I have just spent a wonderful week at the ab fab Vale d'Oliveiras Resort. We all needed the holiday after an extremely busy and stressful year. Within half a day of arriving at the resort I was more relaxed than I had been for a very long time! The staff could not be more friendly, our town house was absolutely immaculate and soooo pretty. It was kept pristine daily throughout the stay. The pool area is luxurious, spotless and very friendly, although it was very quiet it was definitely family friendly. The food is good. Breakfast food could be a little hotter possibly. But we really did feel that we were in a luxury resort. The whole family made very good use of all the sports facilities on offer and we also had a fantastic time in the spa too. We usually stay in hotels but will definitely be returning with friends in October - they have to come and see it for themselves after we have talked about it so much! Top marks to all the staff.

Room Tip: We had a town house with a garden view. No noise whatsoever. Quieter than a pool view, although the...

Vale d'Oliveiras is a perfect place for you to go with your family. It as a really nice location near Carvoeiro. The resort is very peaceful and you really feel like you're at home. We stayed in a two bedrooms house with a big living room and a full equiped kitchen. All the facilities are in very good condition and well mantained. The Health Club is pretty good with a very nice indoor pool (you need to use shower cap) and gym.

Me and my husband only stayed the one night here. On entering the hotel you instantly got the wow factor. The staff when we arrived was very nice and very helpful, the gentleman was going to show us round the hotel, but we arrived late and wanted our bed. They escorted us to our room, thro the beautiful gardens. The room was very modern and bed was so comfortable, the only downside to the room was the bathroom, difficult to reach the bath taps when the glass shower screen didnt move. But thats just a petty thing. The internet connected straight away with no problem, not like other hotels we stayed . The next morning we went down for breakfast every thing was very clean, staff was very good cleaning the tables, love that they has a proper toaster, and lots of tea and coffee ( help yourself), the down side to the hot breakfast was that it was cold!!! But didnt have the heart to say any thing as it was a perfect hotel, but did report it on chek out and to be fair was only there one night.

Stayed here at the beginning of June on a bed and breakfast basis. The resort is superb, but is lacking in so many areas. They are all minor details but they add up! The breakfast's were luke warm, the hot water for tea was tepid. There was masses of choice but the hot food was definitely not hot! There is supposed to be a shuttle bus into the local resort of Carvoeiro but that was not the case. So as a result we spent a fortune on taxis. The music that was played at the pool area was very annoying just a droning noise in the background! These all sound very small problems now that I write them down and they are, but a hotel of this quality should not have to be told basics like how to important it is to serve food hot!!

This hotel is such a wonderful luxury and I can't say enough about the luxurious stay we had here. I travelled here with my 71 year old Mum and my to girls of 10 and 5 and we all had the very best holiday.
The best thing about this holiday, apart from the stunning accommodation is the staff who go out of their way to make your stay as memorable as possible, They treated us like friends and were absolutely delightful with both of my children.
The pool area was fabulous, not too large, so you felt that your children were so safe.
The level was cleanliness was amazing and our townhouse was always cleaned to an incredibly high standard.
We stayed half board and the buffet breakfast was fabulous, there was everything anybody could possibly want.
My only minor gripe would be that the food isn't what you would expect in a 5 stat hotel and didn't quite hit the mark, We had a 3 course set menu on half board and you could pay extra to go a la carte. The food was good, but could have been so much better! Also, the choice for the children on their menu was limited, so after a week they had exhausted all the options.
The only other thing I would say, which we didn't do, is that you should definitely hire a car a the resort is quite secluded and you aren't really very close to anywhere or anything.

Room Tip: I would recommend the garden view rooms as they are so quiet and are within such easy walking distan...

My girlfriend and I visited Vale d'Oliveiras in June 2013. Considering the money we paid, we weren't expecting anything as nice as what we got. The place is truly special. The reviews we read we're so good we thought it must be too good to be true.
Our room was excellent. Spacious, clean, air con, plenty of clean towels & toiletries as standard. All rooms have good views.
The hotel itself was very nice. Quiet and clean. Staff were more than happy to help and nothing we asked was too much trouble. They were friendly and professional. The other hotel guests include couples and families, some with young children, so there was a variety.
The food in the hotel restaurant was also good, typically Portuguese cuisine as well as other choices. Breakfast (which was included with our room) was lovely and had a large choice of food from bacon and sausage to pastries, cereals and fruit, ham and cheese.
Facilities at the hotel are great. The spa has a jacuzzi, indoor heated pool, sauna and gym (all of which are good quality) and these are all usable free of charge for guests. Outdoor pool is clean and large. Gardens around hotel are beautifully kempt. The location is beautiful. We had to leave the hotel early to return home, before breakfast was served, however the hotel gave us a packed breakfast including fruit and pastries and juice and milkshakes each. It was a nice touch that made leaving so early a little better!
Location-wise, about 10min drive into Carveiro and hotel runs a free shuttle to there as well as a couple of other near by villages. Taxis costs are similar to that of UK.

Wow. Have arrived today to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Cannot believe the amount of room we have in the one bed-roomed townhouse. Staff are friendly and can't do enough for you, with one kind gent driving us in to Caroviero at 4pm even though we hadn't booked the shuttle. Got back (taxi 7 Euros) to find beds turned down, chocolates in place and bottle of champagne and a gorgeous chocolate and fruit and cream cake on the table for us. It's those little
touches that mean the world, particularly as this is our first trip away without children since 1991.

This is an excellent hotel. We have self catered on all our foreign hols since our honeymoon in 1988- this is the best of both worlds. Hotel facilities on tap, but with our own living and eating space.

That gripe. Seems rather churlish now, given what we found when we got back in. However....it would be nice if there was a basic welcome pack in the kitchen. Just a few tea bags, coffee sachets and milk. When we arrived after a long journey from Gloucester, the first thing we wanted was a brew. There is nothing in the townhouse to brew. The nearest supermarket is a 15 min walk apparently. I know we could get room service or go down to the pool bar, but this is our space for the next few days, and, well, we're British. ( insert smiley face here).

Good god. I must sound a right tart....
