We'll appointed hotel in central location with excellent staff and good food. Small intimate relaxing hotel, ideally suited for couples as has a no children policy. Rooms with pool view are extra and pick up the afternoon sun for relaxing on the veranda.

I have just returned from a very enjoyable holiday in Portugal and stayed at Hotel Vila Gale for the first time. The hotel was lovely. The service was great. The food was delicious. The beds were comfortable and the staff couldn't do enough for you. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely go back.

This is our second visit to the hotel and we stayed 20 days. Firstly, the reception staff of Ricardo, Sofia and Anna could not do enough to help and are genuinely nice people. The restaurant staff Philipe, Katrina, Nadia and the two Pedros were fantastic and could not do more to help and make the holiday happy for the customer.... More

Although the hotel was a distance away from the main hive of activity in Aberfura it was an awesome hote. Beautiful and clean, quieter than normally used to but what a nice chilling place. The staff was wonderful, helpful and friendly and couldnt name just one as staff othe week they was all brilliant.

This is another good(ish) review for a quiet, serene hotel, which we visited in September 2013. We chose it as we went to a heaving resort on our last holiday with plenty of families and children, and this time wanted something more toned down with less screaming and hollering. This was absolutely the opposite, and actually almost verged on being... More

Get a car and visit the many great local bars, beach bars and restaurants, São Domingo's, Jompra, Solar Das Oliveras O,Girasol, and Arcadia Bar and the famous Cabanitas which... More

Over the years we have stayed many times and always enjoyed the ambience. The staff selection process at this small 40 bedroom hotel is bang on as all the staff are excellent. Hotel guests now have free access to the Spa and many treatments were reduced so they were good value for money. The swimming pool needs to heated and... More

I spent a week at the hotel and had the most wonderful time, could not fault it at all. The staff were all fantastic, helpful, polite and very kind. I had recently had an accident and was using crutches to get around, and nothing was too much trouble. The bedroom and bathroom were beautiful, really comfortable and spacious, and spotlessly...
