Essential Kit Guarantee Info Some terms and conditions apply so please read our complete Terms and Conditions before booking.
As this is a resort property, not all equipment is stored within the property. It is therefore important that the items you require are requested using your booking form before arrival, so that the items can be placed in your property.


Your single-storey residence is the perfect base for exploring the resort, with a light and airy stylish interior, and colourful little touches.

The king-size bedroom is elegantly decorated, with plenty of room for a cot…if your little one is a bit older, then they can sleep on the comfy sofa bed in the open plan living room, and housekeeping can set the sofa bed up for you.  You’ll find a smart television, free Wi-Fi and a surround sound system in here.

The fully-equipped kitchen is kitted out with all the mod cons, including a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and coffee machine; a window looks over the living area so you can keep an eye on your tots while you’re prepping food.

The family bathroom is kitted out with a bathtub, an overhead shower and hairdryer.

Patio doors lead out from the bedroom and the living room to the gardens.

Parent Point:

  • As the terrace out to the garden is not enclosed, you will be allocated a residence away from the pool area



Vale d’Oliveiras is a small resort with all the main facilities right at the centre, so you’ll never have far to toddle for food, splashes and play time.

At the heart of the resort, you’ll find a shared swimming pool and a separate toddler pool for junior splashers; older kids can take the opportunity to learn to swim with the swimming lessons on offer here.  There is also a great indoor heated pool.

Break for lunch and drinks at the Jasmine Pool Bar, which has a special children’s menu.  There is an outdoor play area nearby, so tots can play on the slide, swings and climbing frame.

If you fancy some me-time, little ones from the age of four and up will love playing and making friends at the kids’ club (which runs in school holidays and is free of charge), or you can book a babysitter for tinier tots, just make sure you give 24-hours’ notice.

While they’re having loads of fun playing, treat yourselves to a couple’s massage at the spa, a class at the health club, or just chill out by the poolside.

Golf fans, head to one of the neighbouring courses (the hotel has agreed for access and discount in some of the nearby golf courses, just ask them which).

In the evenings, you can dine in or head to the Olive Tree Restaurant, which serves up yummy Mediterranean-inspired dishes, cooked up with fresh ingredients from the farm garden.

No Algarve holiday is complete without trips to the beach, and Vale d’Oliveiras run free shuttle buses to a choice of beaches, so get your buckets and spades at the ready.

Just 10 minutes away is Carvoeiro, a small town with shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.  The beach here is a beautiful sandy bay, sheltered by cliffs on either side.

The shuttle bus can also take you to Praia dos Caneiros, a cove that looks out to a large rock that is isolated in the water; the beach is soft and sandy and is surrounded by beautiful cliffs.

Also 10 minutes away is the small and traditional town of Ferragudo, which sits by the estuary of Rio Arade.  Chill out in the village square, which is surrounded by cafes, where you’ll grab pastries and cappuccinos while your little ones run around and play…or wander to the quay for yummy restaurants looking out to the river.

There is a choice of activities for family day trips out – Slide and Splash is just over 10 minutes’ drive away and has a kids’ area with foam slides, as well as bigger rides for older kids and adventurous parents…oh and a yummy Gelateria.

You can also head to Zoomarine Algarve, the most popular visitor attraction in the area, or Aqualand, which has its own Children’s Paradise and Rainbow Park for the littles ones – both are 20 minutes’ drive or less away.
