“FABULOUS! Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

We have literally just got home from a wonderful week at Vale d'Oliveiras Quinta Resort. What a fantastic resort! From the moment you drive through the entrance there is a very 'regal' feel to the place, the gardens, the layout etc - but the real "wow" moment is saved for when you walk into your accommodation through the well-manicured entrance lined with orange trees (we had a 2-bedroom townhouse). Houses were beautifully done out, very spacious with modern decor. Kitchen was adequately equipped for a family of 4-6 (2 double bedrooms plus double sofa bed) to easily cater for themselves. The surrounding gardens were beautifully maintained too.
Passing through the beautiful reception area you access the superb Olive Tree Restaurant and Olive Bar (who do a fantastically delicious and reasonably priced Club Sandwich!).
Pool area is amazing, although the pool was understandably cold at this fine of year, though this didn't deter the kids at all!! Plenty on offer from the hard working kids club, although we were out and about a lot so didn't use it enough to comment more.
A special mention to Nuno & Daniel on reception who were attentive, informative and a credit to the resort. I know it's a small observation but Nuno greeted us every day using our names, which in a full resort is no easy task, but a most welcome gesture. Great job!
We had booked a hire car on arrival at Faro Airport which is a MUST for the area as it is quite remote - but nowhere near as difficult to find as some reviewers state.
For us, Praia Marinha was easily the highlight of the area - absolute gem of a secluded beach just a 10 minute drive away. Slide & Splash Aqua Park is barely 5 minutes away and is great for both the kids and the 'big' kids! All in all plenty of things to see and do for all tastes.
We were there 9th-16th April, had great weather and won't hesitate to book again for next year.
A great, great place!

This is our third and final night at this delightful resort, and we wish we had booked for longer. The resort is well maintained, the facilities are very good and the staff friendly and helpful. We have a hotel room with a small balcony. The room is spacious and comfortable and has everything we could possibly need. Best of all it is very, very peaceful whilst still very well located for exploring. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and would love to return.

this hotel was recommended by friends and I have no hesitation in giving a good review. The plus points are the staff - who are efficient, friendly and responsive - breakfast, and the facilities, rooms and pools, our bed was one of the best hotel bed that I have experienced
If I were to be critical I would say that the dining area can feel a bit short of atmosphere when numbers are down, though the food is good.

This was our first proper visit to Vale D'Oliveiras and we have already started to plan our next visit. I believe any such place is only as good as the people who work there - all the staff, from reception to waiters to bar staff are all exceptionally friendly. Having said that, it also helps the fact that the actually premises and facilities are also excellent. Particular mention for the wonderful breakfast, all you can eat and fantastic selection. Maybe just a little more attention to detail when dining in the restaurant in order to meet the 5 star rating. But do not let that put you off. Experience this wonderful resort for yourself and have a fantastic experience.

Me and my friend set off for a mini break and ended up coming across this hotel. As it was fairly quiet time of year, we got upgraded to one of their town houses which was lovely, very clean, large living room, dining area, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, patio, sun loungers - far more than we were expecting. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and very well maintained. The only downside was that the time we went the pools were being cleaned so couldn't use and the pool bar was shut but imagine in peak season it's got a great atmosphere. Food in the hotel was ok - great service. Location of the hotel means you'd probably have to get a taxi into one of the nearest towns like Cavoeiro which is beautiful and some nice looking restaurants by the beach but only costs around 10 euros. The hotel runs a shuttle service a few times during the day but stopped around 4pm but not sure if they would run more frequently in peak season. Overall the staff were more than accommodating with any of our needs and couldn't thank them enough. Overall a great stay - just 4 nights wasn't long enough for us!

We had 4 nights in the resort and absolutely loved it. The guys in reception were excellent, welcoming and very friendly. We travelled as a couple and 2 grown boys and were able to get two one-bed roomed townhouses which are superb. Top quality furnishings and fully kitted kitchen. The gardens are immaculate and each area is divided by hedging. We had the table d'hôte as part of the deal on the first night and it was very good. The Olive Bar has a Happy Hour but the ordinary prices outside of that are still reasonable (also has Sky football)
Breakfast is probably the best I have ever had. Superb variety of juices, fruit, bread and hot food.
Agree that if you are staying for any than more than 3 or 4 days, a car is a good idea. Hotel does a free shuttle bus and taxis are not expensive. Small on site shop, beer and wine very reasonably priced. Staff were excellent throughout. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Try to get a townhouse

We returned again this February following a lovely time last year. We weren't disappointed, it was just as lovely as last time. A fab place to go to chill. Staff are attentive but discreet.
The new bar is a lovely new addition. Car hire a must though as a little distance outside Carvoeiro. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all. Just remember to take your own swimming cap! :-) Thanks to all the staff for a great break away.

Room Tip: If booking a town house ask for one overlooking golf course.
