We planned a short trip out of Lisbon and I was told that Ericeira was a nice beach town to enjoy a break from the city. The Vila Gale is presented as an upscale hotel with a strong level of amenities and comfort. Part of the problem is probably due to the fact that we went there during the August... More

We had 4 nights here following 4 hot days in Lisbon. The hotel is right on the sea, and there are spectacular views from balcony rooms, and from your breakfast table!(breakfast was a highlight) Staff were very helpful, and changed our room immediately when we found that we had a 'tree view' instead of a 'sea view' Also helpful with...

Dear Guest, We were very sad to know that we were not able to keep up with your expectations in the hotel and in Ericeira. One of the main points of Ericeira is being still a pictoresc and small village, but probably this was not what you were looking for. Regarding the hotel and the triple rooms issue, probably that...

Business trip with meeting in hotel. About 35 minutes from Lisbon airport (little traffic) and a the views and location are excellent. Service - excellent and efficient. Check-in was fast and service for meals and breaks was good. Room: I was unlucky with a car-park view, and the room definitely was suffering from a mouldy carpet. Seaside hotels can be... More

The hotel is located in a pretty fishing village. The hotel style is I would say old Portugese charm which we liked, however if you like modern hotels you would probably not like it and think it was in need of updating. Right on the beach and close to lots of excellent restaurants, with of course fresh seafood. Very clean... More

This is an amazing location situated on the headland like a ship in the ocean. The waves that come crashing by are spectacular from the balcony rooms overlooking the sea. It's a surfers paradise if you like surfing. Ericeira is a quiet fishing village with one Main Street. A holiday for getting away from hustle and bustle to relax. Lovely... More

Stayed for 5 nights in the Vila Gale Hotel. Best location in Ericeira overlooking the ocean and local beach. Room was comfortable with sea view and balcony. Great selection at breakfast to suit all tastes and international preferences (although I'm not a big fan of frankfurters in place of a good old pork sausage). Having said that the sparkling cava/wine... More
