This is a golf resort of villas around a golf course. There is no central hotel with facilities to meet at as suggested by the title of the resort. There is a golf club house with a decent restaurant and small pool but little seating area. There isn't a main place where children on the resort can meet other children. The accommodation staff changed so some didn't even know the area to recommend where the closest shop was whereas others were very helpful. The villa was large but without air conditioning. It was serviced everyday but the cleaner moaned about having no time and left me to unload and hang up any towels she washed. Overall it's a good resort for families who want to have a holiday without meeting others or for golfers without children.

I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights as a single traveller. The room was lovely, the decor was contemporary and the king size bed was great. The pool and grounds were beautiful, well maintained and perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sun. There was only a small number of children staying at the hotel and that for me was also a bonus as it meant a quieter and more relaxed atmosphere. The spa was fantastic, I had a great facial and massage and used the sauna, jacuzzi and steam room everyday. The only small disappointment for me was the food, the buffet breakfast was good although wasn't really restocked so if you arrived later the choice was limited, the food at the pool bar was nice but the evening buffet was disappointing and over priced. This was just a small disappointment in an otherwise really enjoyable stay and I'd definitely go back again. Highly recommended.
Staff at the Vale d'Oliveiras Quinta Resort show that they understand customer service. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel genuinely welcome. Like much of the area, signposting and road markings are rare so the drive from Faro had been "interesting" so it was a great relief to be looked after so well by the reception staff on arrival. The hotel room was clean and quiet (in the end always the two most important factors). The bed was on the hard side for us but the hotel staff responded immediately when we asked and added comfortable mattress toppers. The bathroom was good although ventilation, lighting and ease of getting in and out of the shower/bathtub could have been better Food was good and the waiters knowledgeable and attentive. Gym and pool staff were very helpful and, as in the hotel generally, spoke good English.
Absolutely fantastic and would return for sure. Large apartment and peaceful at all times. Always sunbeds available and nightly entertainment. Excellent location too. Free shuttle to town and back at various times during the day.
We had a comfortable stay at this hotel. We included breakfast which gave everyone a vast choice of cooked and continental, worth including is have healthy appetite.
Recommend if you hire a car for duration of trip do this in advance as cheaper, if only for a few days, use local service as not worth the time, cost and effort returing the car to the airport.
