Nice hotel with friendly helpful staff. We had a family room which was a good size with a kitchen and living area. Lovely sea view with a short walk to the marina. Indoor pool was great for the kids. Would stay here again tomorrow if we had the chance to.

Beachside hotel ideally located to all the main tourist spots. Its not cheap and the customer service was good but not outstanding. that said its tough to find outstanding customer service anywhere in Portugal. one annoying thing is the wifi seems to be like gold dust, get with the modern world and just unlock it for your customers as standard....

We had a beautiful sea view room in the hotel, the view from the balcony was stunning. The hotel was clean, had good facillities and was in an excellent location. If I had to be picky I would suggest that the en suite in the rooms could be updated but that is the only thing that I would pass comment... 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

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
