We were pleasantly surprised. This gem of a property and its staff made us feel as though we were in heaven for a few days. Bruno, Raquel, Andre, Diana and Daniel couldn't be thanked enough. All were kind resourceful, helpful and a credit to their country and employer. We will be back!

if you are looking for somewhere that will give you peace & quiet then Vale del Rei Hotel is for you. The only time we saw how many people were staying at the complex was at breakfast, and the main pool. With two pools and beautiful gardens people seem to find their own piece of tranquility. We booked a villa which was very spacious and comfortable. There were a couple of issues, however within a couple of hours of speaking to reception. Maintenance were at our door. I believe you only find out how good a place is when something goes wrong and Vale del Rei was first class. We had a meal in the restaurant and pool bar and wished we hadn't. The food was good however the service in both was poor. In the main restaurant we asked for our daughters meal to be served with our main course, and it came with the starters. They subsequently then got my sons order wrong which meant by the time it was rectified we had eaten. In the pool bar they forgot half our order. Obviously we only eat in both eatery's once. The only other area I think the hotel should look is standards around the pool. There were signs prohibiting inflatables & saving sunbed's, however these were not enforced. I don't mind people saving sunbed's however not using them for 4 hours is unacceptable. The amount of inflatables in the pool sometimes became dangerous with children who were swimming constantly being hit by them. Car essential to explore. Overall a great place to stay just a couple of areas need improvement.
