I stayed at the Hotel the last week in September and the weather was beautiful. I used the two outdoor pools, and the Sauna, Jacuzzi and Turkish bath. Although the hotel was full, there weren`t many people using these facilities, so it was quiet and relaxing. Some of the reception staff were lovely and helpful. I upgraded to a room... More

This is a lovely hotel in a super location but the food is not worthy of a 4 star hotel. The pool area is lovely and clean with plenty of room and the views and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks stunning. With only a short walk to the town this hotel is in an ideal position.

the hotel was lovely and it was clean and tidy. had a great location and we were able to walk out to the little town which was lovely. Considering this is a 4 star hotel, the food on the buffet was quite frankly, awful. It was more often than not cold and lacked any imagination. Considering the local shops sell... More

We stayed four days in this hotel in late August. We booked a balcony room with a seaview, and were very glad we had - the balcony was lovely and had a gorgeous view. The hotel is spotless, although some may find it a bit old-fashioned, I really liked the typical Portuguese decor. Although the hotel seemed to be fully... More

With a sea view room on upper floors one will be happy. But the downsides are: hardly any parking space, old, portuguese style hotel with furniture and decoration alike. Very spacious room with 'classic' furniture and beds: Portuguese like 'em hard. Bathroom has it all but is also a bit outdated. But all very clean. Airconditioning works but at night... More

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
