Good location, close to the marina. Hotel feels a bit tired and needs some money spending on it. Bed linen is fine, but the bedroom furniture feels knocked about and needs upgrading as do the towels. Fast and free broadband in public areas. The room safe doesn't work without a key (in order to charge E2.50 a night extra), and... More

Stayed here (hubby and 5 year old twins) in May 2015 for 9 nights. Couldn't fault the place. We loved the location and it was right on the beach plus so near to the eateries of Vilamoura. The staff were really helpful and the Nep Club run by Paula was lovely as it gave us a few hours off in... More

Myself and my wife recentlybooked a two night stay at this hotel. What a mistake this was!!! Whilst our room was adaquate and the sea view was amazing, our problems began with the evening meal which we considered to be lacking in choice and in quality. As a result we ate very little but despite having booked half board were... More

Great location, 2min walk from a super beach and great restaurants. The staff were very helpful and could not ask more from the cleaners. The room was large, well furnished with a very big balcony over looking the sea. Good spa area, and had a very good massage, reasonably priced. Breakfast was pretty good, and plentiful. Coffee absolutely awful. Pool... More

We stayed in the Vila Gale Amplius the first week of May. As previously stated by other reviewers the hotel is clean and we'll maintained. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Facilities are as described on the website. Breakfast is good although at times the breakfast room can resemble a school canteen when the hordes of golfers arrive. When we... More

Arrived early and rooms were ready. Fab view of sea and marina. Spa was fantastic. Lovely indoor pool, jacuzzi and steam room. Breakfast was the best choice I've ever seen in a hotel. Staff very friendly. Hotel bar does snacks through the day and one of the staff fetched the food out to the pool area for us. Would definitely... More

What a wonderful hotel! The location was suberb, set back slightly from the beach and just a short 5 -10 minute stroll to the bars & restaurants of the Vilamoura Marina; very clean and well equipped; friendly helpful staff. Highly recommended, we will definitely be going back!

Recently returned from staying in this hotel for 2 nights on a girly holiday. Hotel was extremely clean, staff very friendly and discovery of indoor pool was a highlight! Breakfast extremely fresh and opening hours of 6-10.30am made it very flexible for late nights/ early taxi rides back to airport. Hotel perfect for walking down to marina (5 mins) or... More
