Lovely location with all local amenities. Hotel staff very helpful. Great views make sure you get high floor and beach view. We didn't have to book as upon arrival we asked if we could have this and the very nice guy on the front desk organised this. Really fab breakfast.

The staff at reception at this hotel are definately 4 star plus, they are calm and helpful and knowledgable.The staff in the breakfast room are 3 star, no eye contact or good morning, just rushing around a little under pressure. The ambience layout furnishings etc are 4 star, just about. We arrived at 12.00 noon and decided to relax on... More

On arrival we were met with a not very friendly and very rushed check in and breakdown of where our room was. We were a bit dissapointed to be on the second floor facing the back of the hotel (no sun whatsoever) and no Balcony. We had asked the holiday company for a high floor and sunny room.We were not...

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Vila Gale. We have stayed in Vilamoura on several occasions but usually in a villa. This time we decided on a hotel as we wanted to be a bit closer to the marina and all it's lovely restaurants. After reading the previous reviews we decided on the Vila Gale. I... More

We have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions . We find it good value and ideally situated, a stones throw from the beach, and within walking distance from the marina and numerous restaurants. We play golf at the many courses nearby and a big plus is not needing a car as there is a courtesy coach transport to many... More

We went to Vilamoura for 11 nights and stayed at this 1st class hotel. We stayed half board and normally on holidays of this length the food becomes boring, but not here we found a fairly varied menu each evening in a restaurant as opposed to a canteen environment, breakfasts were more than adequate catering for every choice and taste....

The hotel has an enviable location on the fringe of Vilamoura Marina, approx ten minutes walk and overlooking the beach/beach bars with easy access. We booked this family holiday not having been to Portugal for many years and it did not disappoint. The rooms were overlooking the pool and beach enjoying the sun in the afternoon and evening. A fridge... More
