Me and my boyfriend have just visited this hotel, we had a 10 night stay here. When we first arrived we was told we couldn't check in until around 2pm which I suppose is sometimes the case but after just getting off a flight and still being in English clothing and having to walk around the marina for 2 half...

This was my 10th visit and as always I wasn't disappointed. Travelled with my son (12) my friend and her girls (12 & 10). Excellent hotel with fantastic location. This year we had a Suite which was fabulous with the most enormous balcony ideal for 2 couples or family groups. Breakfast has everything you could want (pancakes are always the... More

I have just returned from this hotel and must say it was from far the worst Vila Gale I have ever been. Stayed up in room 823...great view, great areas....but in the middle of night went to toilet and found a cockroach over my tooth brush....It was huge!! On the other side the breakfast buffet was great ...just like other... More

Absolutely brilliant cannot fault this place one bit, staff helpful and friendly, spotlessly clean, excellent location, bit dubious by some reports I'd read before going but myself and my 14 year old daughter loved every minute. Very sad to leave but looking forward to going back. Thanks for making our holiday perfect.

Thought I would write my review fresh from an 11 night stay in Vila Gale. Positives - breakfast was excellent - good choice - note omelettes can be ordered but you need to ask and this isn't made clear! - pool area was excellent - like anywhere its first up best dressed in terms of getting the best sunbeds. Looking... More

This hotel was extremely clean and the view was absolutely amazing; overlooking the pool, marina and the sea! The staff at the hotel were very pleasant as were the other families who were staying here. However, the food at the hotel was very poor. Hardly any of the food served was warm, they could not even serve warm chips. My... More

Great location. Staff very helpful. The pool area can be busy at times and could be messy as guests seem to forget how to use waste bins! The entertainment during the day was there if you wanted to join in. My family loved the pool games! The only faults for me are - no plug sockets near the mirrors (not... More

Booked here for our trip this year. Got a room on the 5th floor so excellent views over the marina and the beach. Breakfast in morning was excellent on the buffet scale of things. Could get quite busy but we always made it down before peak times. Nice friendly staff here and can only really fault the hotel on a... More

This is a very average hotel, in a nice location. TONS of families hanging out at the pool. Easy walk to the beach or marina. Room, and balcony, were large and clean. Hotel sent us champagne as we were celebrating our marriage, which was a nice touch. Spent most of our time at the pool. Loved the large breakfast buffet.
