We stayed here and also hosted a family gathering outside on the lawn overlooking the sea. Aside from being well maintained, clean and confortable ; the staff cannot do enough to help you. We will Definetly go back to Vila Gale.

Visited last september and nothing to say about the value for money because the confort and mostly the balcony in the room faced the ocean was great. Very poor breakfast but the service in the restaurant was a step lower... waiters dont care about their customers, indescribable!

This a very good hotel located in front of the sea. The beach is 1min walking and 3 pools with sea view. This is an old fashion hotel very well managed. The staff is friendly. The breakfast is excellent. The only situation that I have considered very bad is the kids club that looks like from a abandoned place. The... More

Have stayed here many times and never been disappointed, one of those places that really makes you feel like you are on a luxury holiday. Great interior and spacy comfortable rooms at competitive prices. Friendly staff and service. Don't forget to try the Caipirinha's, best ordered one at a time!

The location of the hotel is right in the sea front and the views are spectacular. I had a room with a sea view and kept the window wide open because I love the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks - but that might keep others awake at night! The hotel was clean and the staff were very... More

Situated right on the bay a room with a sea view and a balcony-what more to want? Everywhere pristine, staff friendly and efficient,wide food choices at buffet breakfast and dinner. Free wifi but charged for using safe in room. My only minus would be the pools were rather cold but told myself it was 'bracing' and enjoyed a swim every... More

Great hotel location close to town, restaurants, bars and beach. Fantastic views of the ocean, especially with the choice of balcony (extra charge definitely worth it!) Easy to reach surf schools, board and bike hire. NaOnda surf school was great and the surf instructor Joau really helped us learn the skills and strengths of surfing, great week !

The staff was nice. Room spacious enough, mini fridge, beds very comfy, splurged the extra 10euros for a terrace ocean view...no brainer. Came during low season, not crowded at all. Many places to walk from hotel, 5 minute walk to town center, breakfast was included which made this a good value, however we are switching to a guesthouse for a... More

We stayed in the hotel only for a night, so very unfortunately one night only as I was in Lisbon for only a day! My partner had suggested this hotel as the most amazing one in Ericeira and he was right! This was a rainy day, so we stayed indoors most of the time watching waves from the balcony. The... More

Selected a sea-view room with balcony. Big mistake. This is not a gentle lapping seashore, the constant crashing of the waves will keep any light-sleeper awake all night, walls are also very thin and noise from next door is very obvious. That said, the hotel rooms are very spacious and comfortable and looked very nice. The location is excellent for... More
