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.

Overall a pleasant experience. Probably one for the romantic couples / families rather than than a lone visitor but that's clearly down to personal preference. Logistics wise it's ok. Location wise it is about 15 minutes away from central Lagos. Not far by any means but not exactly a quick pop out to get to a local bar. About 15... More

Lovely pool with lots of sun beds, pool very cold though. Pool bar prices quite expensive, especially drinks. Good selection at breakfast. Paid for the buffet one evening but very unimpressed by the choices. All hotel staff speak very good English & are very polite & helpful. Rooms are nicely decorated with plenty of space & storage. Corridors are VERY... More

There were a few small things that I found slightly irritating: Why do you have to pick a towel up from the spa and return it there if you want to use the... More

The Vila Gale is an especially nice place to stay in the western Algarve. The staff are relaxed but attentive, the facilities are good, access to the beach is easy and there is sufficient to do if the weather is not sunny. You will not be disappointed if you book here. The site and building are sufficiently large to hide... More

Swimming pool very cold and full off seagulls. Service is very good, kitchen is maybe a lilt ennoiing, but fresh. Rooms are very clean and have a nice terras, with vue on the sea. Spa is nice, but too small
