I would like to start my review with an apology to Ken D. for the sailors behavior on Friday night. They were very well behaved up until that final night. We stayed at the Vila Gale Tavira for the Youth World Sailing Championship last week. The staff was helpful and pleasant, even when dealing with the teen sailors. The rooms... More

Room ok. Safe costs. WiFi costs. When you then have a junior sailing event and the teenagers are running up and down the corridors at 4 am one tends to get very angry. Then you complain and "sorry" is all you get. Not worth the money, go elsewhere! On the plus side breakfast good, oh and the pillow was good.

Stayed at the Vila Galé in Tavira before on a bed and breakfast basis. The room was perfect, and the breakfast amazing. The staff were very professional and friendly. It is in the ideal location for both sides of town. The only gripes I have is that WiFi other than in the foyer is not free and I had to... More

We booked a standard room for a week and were apprehensive about it having read other reviews that recommended a pool view. It overlooked a relatively quiet street and was perfect for us. I wouldn't recommend paying a supplement. We were worried initially as it was opposite the lift - room 3004, but it wasn't at all noisy as the... More

Third time we have stayed here in two years so there's a good recommendation for a start! Tavira is, for the moment, relatively unspoilt yet this is a very modern hotel-almost an oasis in an otherwise rustic resort, The pool is very pleasant, if a little cool and no problems with sun beds. Breakfasts are superb, including full English and... More

Also smoking should be banned around pool area . Buffet breakfast quite good but why cannot we have real sausages instead of horrible mini frankfurters . scramble egg tasted... More

we have been using vila gale off and on for the last 7 or 8 years and always look forward to the ambience and convenience to Tavira town centre - on this visit we found the hotel a little tired looking and the welcome not as friendly as what we had always previously experienced - breakfast room was always very...

First time in Portugal, Tevira is lovely. Hotel is centrally located, within walking distance of town centre, 3 mins walk to ferry for the beach. Hotel bright & airy, lovely pool with lots of seating-we had no problems there. Bar /snack service poor, much better to adjourn to little cafe bar on corner across the road - hotel bar is... More

Nice hotel with a nice pool area but not up to scratch considering what you pay...the room was tired and a lot of the areas need a bit of attention. The break fast feels a bit unfriendly but good choice. Nice indoor spa room. We found it noisy there with cleaners making a lot of noise first thing in the... More

Visited in June 2014 and was very pleased with most aspects. The rooms are very good, the pool area is well supplied with furniture, the pool itself is excellent, the reception area is pleasant and airy, the location is good, convenient for the town or a quick exit out(if you have a car) and the staff were all very friendly...
