DO NOT GO HERE. this is the worst hotel experience of my life. more infants than adults, breast feeding in the lobby.....really????? the food is worse then a crappy buffet. Hair all over the place and slime on the floor; after waiting 3 hours to check in they would not let me preview my room but tried to coerce me... More

We've just arrived from Vila Gale Mares. We've been there before. The beach is amazing (although the ocean isn't clear as the caribbean sea and the sand isn't white)… The pool is amazing... There are lots of palm trees…We've got a standart chalet facing the pool. Good size, Great location. That all have been said… The hotel was overcrowded. Our... More

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
