Well looked after in modern hotel. Staff very busy, but friendly and attentive, We don't normally stay in hotels of this size, but plenty of space and staff made us feel very welcome. My wife received champagne and chocolate cake unannounced on her birthday which was a lovely surprise and really summed up the effort that went into our stay.... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in March. I used the indoor pool etc and was very impressed. The breakfast was very nice, the room was very young clean and bed was comfortable. The bar was a bit quite but this was March I would imagine during high season the atmosphere in the bar would be better. I... More

It may have been because we specifically picked an early-season time outside of school holidays, but, in our early thirties, we were not in the same generation as the majority of the guests. The hotel itself is very nice with a huge swimming pool, large restaurant and great proximity to a nice beach but it was a bit 'industrialised'. The... More

Whilst staying in Lagos in an Apartment for a few months we decided to have a few days luxury at the Vila Gale close by, the Apartment could be cold in Winter and lacked good TV and Internet so thought this would be a nice change for Valentines. We got a really good rate direct with the Hotel and stayed... More

We stayed here for one night in February, the reception staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We got a very good rate due to the time of year, the room was nice and the beds were comfortable. Very clean everywhere. The hotel itself is huge and we found it a little impersonal, however this could... More

Stayed here with my mum and my daughter to celebrate 2 special Birthdays. The helpful and friendly customer service started before we even got there, I emailed the hotel to ask if they could possibly arrange some sort of Birthday surprise on our arrival and had lovely messages back and nothing was too much trouble. Used ResortHoppa transfers (GreenBus), these... More

We were given a room here by the holiday company I booked through- that's another story- and thought it would be ok. Well- the place is huge and very modern but I have seen more life in a taxidermists dustbin. The corridors are almost in the dark, particularly if like me you wear transition lenses which don't lighten fully in... More

In December 2014 my wife and I spent a few days at the Vila Gale Lagos, Portugal. At off season rates, we felt it was a fine bargain. The hotel is probably intended for hot weather vacationers, with two large swimming pools set in olive orchards stretching down to a long, sandy ocean beach. When we were there the hotel... More

There were things to eat and drink for anyone. The stuff was well trained: whenever a dish went empty, they filled up. The veriaty of... More
