Just returned from a lovely holiday in vilamoura. The ampalius is in a fantastic location, just beside beach and marina. We stayed in a superior room with sea view. There was nothing superior about the room except the sea view which was lovely and did make up for the fact that the room is very basic and in need of... More

Just back from a 4 night stay.Hotel is just a 5 min walk from the marina and adjacent to a great beach. Service and facilities were excellent throughout and great breakfast slot from 6.00 to 10.30 which covers all needs. Quarteira is just a 10 min stroll along the beach too. Will be back

We only stayed one night to celebrate my wife's birthday and everything was wonderful. The hotel was clean and tidy with a wonderful sea view. Breakfast had everything you could want although was hectic and the coffee wasn't great. The hotel even left a bottle of fizz for our celebrations with a pineapple and chocolate dessert.

This hotel has a great location,handy for the beach and the marina. We were a party of 4 golfers but the room we were given on the 7th floor was a bit small. 2 single beds close together. Room felt claustrophobic especially with no balcony. We asked for a change and got one the next day . The next room... More

Just returned from a marvellous break in Portugal to the lovely Vilamoura. We chose the Vila Gale to be close to the beach and the marina and this was the perfect location- beach steps away and so was the marina which had a wonderful array of bars, restaurants and shops- plus the Christiano Ronaldo museum 😀 The hotel itself was...

We have recently returned from a very enjoyable week spent at the Vila Gale Ampalius in Vilamoura. This is a modern well apportioned hotel with excellent outdoor swimming pools and sun-gardens. There are plenty of sun-loungers, towels and a very convenient pool snack bar with well priced food. We had luckily paid the extra for a sea-view room, which meant... More

We visited Vila Gale Ampalius in July and had another good holiday but feel it was not as good as usual and is catering more for golfers. You have to be up pretty early for a sunbed which was not a problem for us, but what was very annoying was that groups of 5 beds were being kept by golfers... More
