The hotel is excellent for the beach and the front facing suites offer excellent views. The standard bedrooms are comfortable with well stocked toiletries. The website does say there is a hairdryer but this is a wall mounted old fashioned dryer which is no use so make sure you take a travel dryer along! The room was clean but I... More

We stayed here for 5 nights when we went to the Portuguese Masters. Great base for that purpose. Close to the beach and the town of Vilamoura. The hotel was clean and with good facilities if. However not the chicest place I have ever stayed at. It is testament to the quality of the original hotel build that the decor... More

Have stayed at this hotel over the last 15 years and it is still as good as before. The hotel is good for exploring the area, is popular with both golfers and bowlers. A superior sea view room is definitely recommended, about the 6th floor upwards. The staff are friendly, the buffet breakfast, gives you plenty of choices. If you... More

Have just stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel was very nice and the service very good especially Patricia who sorted out our third night after a flight mix up delayed us by a day. She also helped us sort out a return transfer after best4u transfers refused to change the date of our return transfer even though we had... More

Just returned from 4 nights on golfing trip with 7 friends. The hotel is dated but comfortable and clean with good sized rooms and other facilities. The staff are very friendly and helpful, couldn't help feel that the two girl on reception cool have done with some support when 30 golfers all trying to check in at the same time.... More

Vila Gale Ampalius is your perfect choice if you want to be in a nice hotel next to the beach. The beach is literally across the street; however, you might want to think twice before deciding to go there as 2 sun beds and an umbrella were more close to 30 eur for the entire day, a complete rip off....

We have stayed at this wonderful hotel before so it was easy to choose it again on our recent visit back to Vilamoura. We got married in the Algarve late September and had over 100 guests with many of them staying in this hotel. We stayed on the 5th floor and had a wonderful view of the sea and the... More

Stayed 7 nights Sept/Oct 2014. Felt at home with all the over 50's at this time of the year. Its a golf hotel. Great buffet breakfast to set you up for the day. Not for young families because the sea is dangerous with a huge undercurrent. Would definitely go back but would ask for room with full sea view and... More
