I spent a week in November at the Vila Gale Ampalius, basically during a quiet period. It was was, however, a busy week at the hotel. All in all, they did a good job, even though during breakfast it was obvious that they were staffed for a smaller crowd. The rooms are nice, most of them with sea view. Not... More

10 of us have just returned from a short break at this hotel. Most of us have visited in the summer and enjoyed it. There were very few guests at this time of year and the staff were super. We stayed half board and most of the time were the only people dining on an evening. We were told they... More

What you see is what you get. We spent a week here in early November and had deliberately selected this hotel for its location close to the marina, its spa facilities, the possibility of upgrading to a junior suite as well as price considerations. We were not disappointed. Pleasant room with view of the marina and the sea, 8th floor... More

They run a very efficient shuttle bus to golf courses too . Obliging staff . Room was clean if a bit basic but great views... More

The breakfast is really good, one can fill up and it will get you through the day. accommodation and golf can be booked directly with the hotel resulting... More

Just returned from a most enjoyable weekend break in Villamoura staying at Vila Gale Ampilius. Very friendly hotel with excellent facilities. Rooms were large and well equipped. Food was of a high standard. Restaurant manager Rui and waitress Natalia made our stay very enjoyable with friendly and efficient service. Will definitely be back.

We stayed here for one week in November '14. Despite it being off season, the hotel was very busy, and it is not difficult to understand why. The staff are fully committed to providing excellent customer care consistently from reception staff to housekeeping, restaurant, spa etc. I had a few requests for help with my emails and got immediate assistance,...
