Stayed here for two weeks in June. Accommodation is nice, bathrooms have been recently rennovated I'd say and very luxurious. However, feel like the hotel is just too big for me personally. Could be waiting up to 5 minutes to get a lift each time you use it, reception had a queue every single time I passed it (took approx... More

Having looked forward to seeing Vilamoura we were very disappointed in this hotel. More like 2* than 4. Small dining room with guests and waiters running around with hot food/drink, health & safety hazard and waiters slipping on wet floor. Breakfast basic, no bananas some mornings or berries, oranges, pineapple or tinned peaches for choice! Cooked breakfast as usual for... More

Nice hotel in an excellent location, close to the beach & Marina. We stayed in a spacious suite which was thoroughly cleaned daily. Hotel is quite with mixed clientele; golf parties, couples & families. Pool area is spacious with raised terraces for those who want to escape the poolside! Smaller pool for young children. Breakfast was good with a large... More

Nice hotel, pleasant staff and fantastic location. However, I would not recommend being by the pool in they day - bunches of over exuberant lads being a little to noisy for me. It felt like the hotel works on high volume. Breakfast in the morning was a free for all!, people acting like savages.

I have spent alot of time looking for a hotel on or next to the beach. When booking Vila Gale Ampalius Portugal I didn't realise I had found the perfect location. My mother has limited mobility and the hotel is located on the beach front just across from a magnificent beach, the hotel gardens and pools are also excellent with... More

We stayed in a Senior Suite which sleeps five people. You have a kitchen and living area, which also has a single sofa bed. Plus a shower room on this floor. Upstairs you have two twin bedrooms and two bathrooms. Very spacious ideal for a family or just 5 people sharing. We had views of the beach and marina.

We had a junior suite on the 9th floor. View was amazing , the room had everything in it plus a kitchen which would benefit some. The fridge had bottle of water in it which apparently equated to a mini bar ! Breakfast were good , we had a massage in the spa it was good. As I already said... More

Rooms ok although the one we were in had a very small balcony which was so close to the one next door we could have shaken hands with the people sitting on it. The bar area had a very unwelcoming feel about it smelled of damp and was definitely in need of refurbishment. Will not be back.

My husband and I are just back from spending 10 days at Vila Gale Ampalius. We booked half board but unfortunately we were so disappointed with the dinner selections that we opted to eat out. The food was to say the least cold and unappetising. We struggled to find something we liked, only once did we see a chef carving... More
