Me and my girlfriend went here for our first holiday. Been on loads of lads holidays and didn't want that scene so decided on somewhere quieter. Nice little place, good pools, decent bar (although a tad expensive, just a tad), shops close, plenty of restaurants close by...all within walking distance. Not much for young couples though and we wished we... More

Went to vale de carros in june with my friend had a great time , staff were really good, it was clean and comfortable. The only down side for us were we made sure we booked before the school holidays , there were lots of children, if you want peace and quiet ask to stay away from the bar. We... More

We stayed in two apartments with another couple. We asked for apartments next to each other at the quiet end of the complex , which was what we got. The apartments have both good and bad aspects , with the good outweighing the bad. They are very basic and in need of refurbishment and our lavatory wobbled precariously each time... More

They have all you need and are comfortable. two swimming pools and lovely terraces to sunbath in private. The staff are fantastic! Special thank you to Joan, Diva, Paulo and the... More

My partner and I have been visiting Vale de Carros since 2003, only missed one year. The two-storey white-washed apartments and studios are set in clusters around beautifully maintained gardens and are furnished in typical Portuguese style - heavy pine furniture, which may not be to everyone's taste. Ground floor one-bedroom apartments have a patio/garden area and first floor studios... More

Now the bad, pool- had dead flys floating in it and not cleaned daily as mentioned in previous reviews. Rooms- was not cleaned prior to our arrival, what I believe to be pubic hairs found in the bed also in the bathroom... More

Room was very ample for the two of us with a large veranda as well, open plan with bed area kitchen area dinning area, small but clean bathroom with... More

My wife and kids have stayed at Vale de Carros three times now and have had a great time each time we have stayed. The rooms are a little basic and could do with a bit of modernisation but are cleaned every day by the maids. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and they other a free minibus... More
