Check-in excellent. My needs were attended to. Room very clean and spacious. Nice balcony.Long walk from elevator but okay because I wanted as quiet a room as possible. Food very good and reasonable. The only thing I wonder about is why you can't buy a bottle of water anywhere on the premises. There is a little gift store and I... More

Do not pay for the parking there is plenty of free parking around the hotel. The Bar is expensive compared to the local bars close by. Walk to the centre and cross the bridge there are plenty of really good restaurants there we ate at the same one both nights it was called Tonel the duck was amazing.

This hotel is very conveniently placed- near the main town-centre. All sorts of sundry shops and restaurants are within 5 min walking distance. It is close to the ferry station for Tavira island where there is a nice beach. The hotel itself is spacious and clean. It has an impressive reception and lobby area which unfortunately has no AC.

We booked the Vila Gale based on good experiences with the chain elsewhere and a central Tavira location. The hotel is perfectly located for the town itself and boats to the island beach. The hotel is very clean, with a large and pleasant swimming pool area with lots of beds and towels provided. Room was spacious with a nice balcony... More

On a positive note the hotel is very clean, with a nice pool area, plenty of sun beds, centrally located in Tavira and most of the staff are friendly and helpful. The free Internet was also OK if you found a good signal! Additionally the air conditioning in our room (junior suite) was excellent and certainly made a welcome respite... More

The hotel has a lot of things going for it. It is steps from the old city of Tavira and to the fairy for the beach. The pool is not too busy and is beautiful. It was easy to get a spot on a chair for some sunning. The room was fine, but not luxury. The bed was lumpy and... More

I knew from experience that the hotel has the Municipal fish&fruit market to the South, a bulk Salt store to the East, a bus stop to the front and a petrol station to the West thus I requested and received...

In the heart of Tavira we found the Vila Gale Hotel in 2008 whilst on the hunt for a house to buy in the East Algarve. It was Jan./Feb. and the prices were amazingly low (a plus for a cold-calling), the staff were friendly, the room was overlooking the swimming-pool, the sunshine was welcoming too. Local restaurants were good and... More
