Vila Galé's crew is - with any exception - lazy, impolite and not able to solve any problem. Since my check-in to my check-out the experience was terrible. The room is average to good and it has a good taxi service. The experience was terrible and I'll never come back.

First of all I have to say I´m writing this review considering Iberostar Praia do Forte as the base of my comparison, since it´s the best All-Inclusive beach resort I know in Bahia and in Brazil. So it´s important to highlight Vila Gale is almost the half of the price comparing with Iberostar Praia do Forte, so be prepared to... More

It is a nice resort though far from any commercial area at 40 miles north of Bahia. They offer tours to Bahia , Praia do Forte and other places.The staff is wonderful and helpful but despite the efforts I believe this place is basically prepared for locals due to language limitations out of Portuguese, and could be a problem for...

My husband and I spent a week at this resort and had a great, relaxing time. We spent most of our time at the pool but the beach was excellent but without easy bar access. We had a fantastic beach cabana - it was quite large and very comfortable. They had a nice all inclusive plan - the food was... More

The pool area facing the beach , in polinisian style it's gorgeous. You will spend most of your time for sure around there. By night , the low light recquired for the turtles procreation allows you to see a million stars, very romantic. The hotel starts to feel the age, the rooms need new televisions and furniture , the bathroom... More

In spite of the other reviews, this hotel really surprised me. I stayed there for 6 days with my wife and 2 years son. I stayed in the superior room close to the sea. A very pleasant place to stay while not by the pool or sea.Comfortable and cosy. Its possible to stare at the ocean from your bed. The... More

The hotel have been excellent. The staff is very friendly and they have everything for babies and infants. My twins with almost 6 months can have soap made for babies and they have a special space for the kids. The pool is awesome. The only negative item is they charge for the internet access which has no reason to pay... More

A fantastic villa, plenty of space, we went with 6 adults and a child and we did not feel we were living on top of each other. Lovely outside living space. Very close to beach and a supermarket that sold everything you could possibly need was in walking distance. Just brilliant.
