VALE D OLIVEIRAS
Name of hotel
Vale d’Oliveiras Quinta Resort & Spa, Carvoeiro
A traditional style with a modern feel. The majority of the one-storey resort leads off from the reception which forms the main hub of the resort, which is set within landscaped gardens and offering panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
A calm and relaxing environment with ambient music piped in the communal areas. If you are looking to completely unwind, you have come to the right place. The resort offers two separate units - the hotel for couples and the residences for families.
The rooms of the resort hotel surround a beautiful courtyard decorated with tiled artwork by Atelier Bongard, a water feature, decking, plants and the spa. The colour scheme in each room varies within a defined palette, the bathrooms in particular are spacious, and there’s a panoramic view from all of the rooms.
The main restaurant, the Olive Tree, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and seats 60 inside and 40 outside. The Portuguese-Mediterranean gourmet dinner menu is particularly recommended: the setting is informal and the restaurant is also open to the public. The Jasmin Bar meanwhile overlooks the pool and offers light meals, snacks and drinks. Themed parties and BBQs are organised during the summer season, and of course room service is available, together with a private-chef cooking service.
The Olive Tree restaurant has a full bar and an extensive wine list, and is ideal for pre- or post-dinner drinks. The Jasmine Bar, located at the side of the pool, tends to be the favoured option during the day or early evening.
Why do you like the hotel?
The aim of the resort is to cater for two distinct groups, families and groups/couples, and they have succeeded. The two accommodation areas, while all part of the same resort, are in distinct locations.
What other facilities does the hotel have?
The resort has a spa, tennis club, kids’ club, health club with indoor pool, sauna and hot tub - services available include personal trainer, aqua & step aerobics, Pilates, swimming lessons and specific programmes for golfers.
