The location of the hotel is great, just a short walk from the marina and the beach. They cleaned the room everyday. The staff were friendly & helpful. We had a large room with large balcony and lovely sea view. Pleasant gym area with indoor swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and turkish bath. Pool area was great with comfortable beds. Great... More

When we arrived at the hotel and went for our dinner I mentioned it was my birthday to the waiter in passing but at the end of the meal they sent over a cake and the staff sang happy birthday, it was a lovely gesture. But that was the start of the best week we have had, its the second... More

Returned for New year with large group of friends. Room on 8th floor directly over beach was lovely with small kitchen. Breakfast plentiful, could have been warmer some days. Staff very attentive and friendly. Excellent location, excellent value. Thanks!

Just returned from a relaxing 5 night break at the Vila Gale Ampalius. from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt special. Nothing was too much trouble, and thanks to the team for looking after us when my daughter was ill with a bug. Special mention to Rui,Patricia,Mariana Tocato and Pinto. Spa facilities and spa staff... More

I suspect this hotel is designed for hundreds of visitors in summer. We visited at New Year. It made the hotel seem a little dark but I think in hotter times this may be a good thing. The rooms are spacious and have little kitchenette which is unusual but useful. The baths are a little small and low. The food... More

Just returned from a post Christmas holiday and enjoyed a lovely break. Room 202 overlooking the tennis courts/play area to the rear. Facilities: Indoor pool, Jacuzzi, Sauna, steam room and spa treatments were all used, full head and body massage was amazing. There was also a gym but I didn't use it. There were also some hotel shops available for... More

Just returned home after a short five day stay from Boxing Day to New Year's Eve! Had a comfortable sea view room on the fourth floor (441), the only negative would have to be that because we overlooked the Casino, we could hear loud music all night for the first two nights!! After that it was quiet! Obviously that was... More

I spent a week in November at the Vila Gale Ampalius, basically during a quiet period. It was was, however, a busy week at the hotel. All in all, they did a good job, even though during breakfast it was obvious that they were staffed for a smaller crowd. The rooms are nice, most of them with sea view. Not... More

10 of us have just returned from a short break at this hotel. Most of us have visited in the summer and enjoyed it. There were very few guests at this time of year and the staff were super. We stayed half board and most of the time were the only people dining on an evening. We were told they... More
