This is a great hotel with every thing a relaxing holiday needs, great food pools spa and Staff. We would particular like to thank the Director and Manager (Ms,Sofia Ribeiro) for her help in sorting out our return to Faro after failure of the Lowcostholidays transporters sub-contracted agent. Well done, We will return, Ed Bennett

Just stayed at the Vila Gale for six nights. Overall I was very impressed with the hotel which is nice clean and modern. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the only thing missing is a kettle which are subject to availability and there were none left for me. Not a huge problem but book this in advance if it essential... More

We did recently stay a few days in the hotel Vila Gale Lagos. The hotel is just a few years old, very modern style. Despite the huge number of rooms, we almost never felt as visitors of a big hotel. Pool landscape is beautiful, water had a very pleasant temperature. Always sufficient number of sunbeds available. Pool bar did offer... More

I so enjoyed a 3-night stay in this Lagos hotel which is a 1st class property! The lobby is contemporary + eye-catching, done in red + black with loads of natural light and a welcoming reception area. From my 3rd floor room, standing on the deck, we saw 3 huge parallel pools, and the ocean. The room and grounds are... More

I spent 3 nights at this 4* hotel in May 2015 and was very surprised by the staffs sympathy and luxury of the hotel. Right after check-in I was given an upgrade to a sea view room (the room was the farthest from restaurants, lobby, indoor pool, children’s club… so it was not actually an upgrade, but still it was...

We stayed at this hotel for 7nights, as part of an organised dance holiday and we loved it. The hotel was clean, spacious and well maintained. The staff were friendly, English speaking and very friendly. The food was lovely, particularly breakfast - and included many vegetarian friendly choices. It was great to be able to eat breakfast outside on the... More

We stayed here for 8 nights and it was good. It was actually 'between average and very good' in terms of rating . The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff are more or less friendly, some much more so than others (if you know what I mean). The pool is lovely - it is huge and the little café... More

We chose this hotel on the strength of its tripadvisor rating and I am pleased to say that we were not disappointed. Lagos is about an hours drive from the airport and longer if there are other drop-offs on the way so beware of this when booking flights. We arrived later than expected at 10 pm and the buffet was...

Very good and modern hotel with good amenities and a very helpful staff. Big and confortable rooms with free wi-fi, just by the seaside. The beach is on the other side of the road. The pool is amazing perfect for kids. Next year we will return.
