This hotel is very well located on the edge of the ocean. The restaurant and the lobby have a spectacular view of the sea. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a room with a little balcony where we could sit and watch the waves crash into the shore. The hotel and the room was tastefully decorated with dark... More

We have stayed here several times and always look forward to returning. We love the ocean and the hotel's site juts out into the surf perpendicular to the beach. Sit on your veranda and watch the big Atlantic Ocean rollers come crashing to shore after their long ocean's traverse. These waves can be enormous. The world record largest wave surfed... More

A very nice hotel, well placed and with a good service. An Hotel that has tradition but that was very well refurbished to adapt to today's demands! The areas near the sea are superb. We loved the kindness and effectiveness of the service and we will certainly be back.

This Hotel is in an excellent location of all the hotels if you are looking to stay in Ericeira and want to walk to everything and have great views. We had no problem finding a free parking space in the hotel car park but i can imagine in summer it would be a problem. We opted for a Sea View... More

This was our first trip to Portugal. We attended a large conference that was located at the Vila Gale. The hotel is full of beautiful ceramic art work, tiled walls and wood work. The restaurant is lovely with glassed-windows facing the sea, a wide variety of food and exceptionally helpful and friendly staff. The hotel has many rooms with an... More

Stayed here for two nights between Christmas and New Year 2013 - very comfortable hotel in a great location - sitting watching the waves crash on the beach was very relaxing.

Our family's stay at the hotel was great. The hotel sets right on the brink of the ocean, oustanding. The breeze from the ocean flowed effortlessly through the hotel -- wonderful. The parking leaves something to be desired -- they had less than 50 parks for the entire hotel so you had to find a park on the streets --... More

I only spent one night at this hotel but I left wanting to come back. The location is absolutely stunning and the town surely deserves a longer visit. The restaurants near the hotel are a must for extremely fresh fish and the whole place is very charming.

The Vila Gale is beautifully situated facing the Atlantic where surfers provide great entertainment while one relaxes at the various pools overlooking the sea. A most relaxing holiday with an equally relaxed atmosphere in the hotel. A sea view room with balcony was the perfect way to watch the magnificent sunsets before heading into the town beside the hotel with... More
