“Stress free hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

If you are looking for a stress free relaxing holiday then you have found it in Vale d'oliverias. I almost don't want to share it with the rest of the world. We stayed for 5 nights in the Hotel and were not disappointed as it was beautiful. The staff are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. Many thanks and will see you again. Simply stunning x

We booked this hotel via an offer from Voyage Prive and what a bargain it was! Ideally situated for the coastline cliff walks around Carvoeiro & a gentle 3.5 km walk into Ferragudo for supper. Perfect. We did eat in the hotel one evening and it was a good meal. However, we love the selection of restaurants in Ferragudo square so preferred to eat there. MY only gripe would be about the muzac played around the pool from lunchtime onwards. "Cool jazz" versions of Bob Marley, The Clash, Pink Floyd etc etc hits. Bizarre stuff. I had to turn my i pod up to maximum volume to drown it out! Ah well, can't please everyone & my wife said she liked the music. Having said that, overall it was a superb hotel.

We had a great time at Vale d'Oliveiras, the rooms were very comfortable, lovely big beds and fantastic views. First rate facilities, we were never short of something to do and the towns of Carvoeiro and Ferragudo are only a short drive away. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, thanks especially to Tiago on the jasmine pool bar, what an asset to the hotel.

This is a fabulous resort. Our one-bedroomed townhouse had every facility we needed (and more), it was clean, comfortable and beautifully positioned. The staff were friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. Even the sunbeds around the pool and those outside our own house were comfortable. It seems that everything about the accommodation and the resort itself has been designed to make your stay as easy, and therefore, as relaxing as possible. Yes, you do need a car or a taxi (8 euros to Carvoeiro) to get about in the evening but most nights we took it in turns to drive and looked forward to getting back to Vale D'Oliveiras for a glass of wine or two on our patio. Bliss. We can't wait to return.

A fabulous beautifully designed hotel. We have a little baby and stayed in the self catering apartments so it was perfect. As it rained on the odd day the indoor pool was especially useful!
Everything we asked for including cot was all sorted for us with no problems. I cannot comment on the food as we did not eat there. You need a car but there are two pretty towns 10 mins away with many good resturants to choose from. A wonderfull place we highly recommend it.

Me and the mrs stayed here for a week! The place is immaculate, and the staff can't do enough to help you.we paid extra for the bed and breakfast which is the best thing we could of done because the cooked breakfast and selection was second to none. When we first walked into our apartment we were blown away.can honestly say this is the most amazing place we have ever stayed.the complex is spotless and the tennis courts and spa centre were very high spec.we enjoyed it that much we are already looking at booking on next year! Highly recommend this place for a luxurious relaxing or activity filled holiday .

We had an excellent holiday even though the weather for the first few days was not the best.
The resort is first class and the service cannot be faulted.
We booked through Voyage Prive and received an additional 10% off food and drink at the resort but the prices at the resort were not excessive anyway.
We were on B&B and there was more than enough choice at breakfast with as much as you could eat.
There is a free shuttle bus into nearby Carvoeiro and another to the nearest 2 beaches and Ferragudo. We used this in the early evening to go into Carvoeiro where there are numerous restaurants and bars to eat and drink - our personal favourites being Ele & Ela and Villa Medici. There is also Cheers Bar which is the only bar that does Champagne by the glass!!! We also had a lovely meal at the restaurant over-looking the beach at Rei das Praias which is must if you like seafood and a good sunset.
All in all this was one best holidays we have had and we hope to return in the near future.
