I can't fault this hotel at all, very quiet (only 14 people when we stayed) Staff are friendly and helpful, breakfast caters for all tastes (6 types of juice, 6 types of cereal, 8 types of fresh fruit, cooked items, pastries, yoghurts etc) We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant twice and had the famed Feng choc dessert (think of...

We had booked a private car transfer to the hotel and was greeted by a young man who with his limited English made us feel warmly welcomed. Upon checking in you get a light cold ice tea served as well as hand towels. As other... More

Vila Gale Praia is a quiet little boutique hotel in an excellent location, just a couple of hundred yards from a superb beach. With just 40 or so comfortable bedrooms (and one suite), the hotel facilities are never stretched. The hotel is a modern low-rise building set in pretty gardens, with a decent outdoor pool (with an outdoor cafe area)... More

Just back from a weeks holiday. The weather happened to be very good for this time of year and thought the hotel was everything we were hoping for. We booked on the basis of other reviews so felt it only fair to give my honest opinion too! Really enjoyed the food in the restaurant. The staff were very helpful &... More

My wife and I enjoyed a 10 night stay during October. The hotel and staff do all that they can to ensure that guests have a quiet and very relaxing stay. Food is good. Rooms are spacious. The beach is just 200 meters away and is stunning as well as clean. We will be back. Highly recommended.

Stayed at the Vila Gale Praia in May with my partner. All i have to say is simply fabulous, we didn't leave the hotel till the last day, there was no need, food was fantastic as well as service, food reasonably priced, and wonderfully presented, maybe some of the best steaks i've ever tasted!! definitely worth a visit!

We picked this hotel after reading the glowing reports on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. This a a great place to stay if you want a quiet, relaxing holiday. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Get a room with a pool view and request the top floor. The restaurant is of a high standard but may be a... More
