Positive Reviews

Great Location with Beautiful Surroundings

Guests reported that Vale de Carros is situated in a perfect location that's only a few-minutes' walk to a beach and many restaurants, shops and pubs. The area outside the hotel is nice too with well-manicured grounds and plenty of places to relax.

Friendly and Informative Staff

The front desk staff are friendly and welcoming. Guests reported that they ask a lot of questions to learn more about you and they lead you right to your room Guests also reported that the staff is very informative about the hotel and the surrounding area and are always ready to help guests plan their stay.

Large and Comfortable Guest Rooms

The rooms are quite large with much room to move around and store personal items. Guests reported that the kitchenette is well-stocked with all the amenities needed, the beds are comfortable and the shower has lots of water pressure.

Negative Reviews

Some Staff Members are Unfriendly

Guests reported feeling unwelcome at Vale de Carros because the staff is passive, unfriendly and uninterested. They reluctantly answer questions and are slow to respond to complaints. Some guests also reported that upon arrival, curt and abrupt front-desk staff members informed them that their booking had been deleted and nothing was done to correct the problem.

Dated, Uncomfortable Guest Rooms

The rooms look like they haven't been updated in a long time because the decor is old-fashioned and the furniture is old. Also reported was uncomfortable beds, worn blankets and sheets, a lack of soundproofing, water that's too hot in the shower, a musty smell, mould in the bathroom and stained toilets.

In a Remote Area Far From The Town Centre

Although guests were aware that the hotel is in a remote area, they didn't realize it would be in the middle of nowhere and the only way to get to the nearest town or any of the attractions is via cabs which tend to be expensive.
