Excellent value for money. The grounds are very pretty and well maintained as are the two pools. The pool near the bar was very popular and great for kids and the other one was a lot quieter and very relaxing. The appartments are basic but have most things you need. We were overlooking the quiet pool which I would say... More

As a stressed out bride to be, I decided last minute that I needed a few days away with my friend of sun and relaxation. We booked Vale de Carros last minute and got exactly what we wanted which was no wild nights (although we ended up having one!), a decent pool and average apartment. On arrival, at 9pm at... More

The apartment was quite large and very good value. the bathroom was a disappointment though but livable. They came in everyday to change the sheets and clean. I must admit I was quite... More

We only stayed here for 1 night as we were staying in a villa close by for the rest of our holiday but I have to say that the apartment was basic, clean and tidy. The receptionist and bar staff were extremely helpful and polite and we were even able to spend the last day of our holiday around their... More

I have never written a review on trip advisor about anywhere else I've stayed before, and I usually stay in 5 star hotels. I wanted an affordable getaway for a week. This was a perfect self catering place to stay. After reading the bad reviews I was nervous, especially staying on my own with my 4 year old. All the... More

Was looking for a cheap get away. Read the reviews on trip advisor but didn't experience any of the negatives mentioned. Apartments were clean, pool looked clean although we never used it. Only once was reception not staffed but the bar is next door and it took me 10 secs to find someone, guess they were watching Worldcup football match.... More
