We've stayed 3 nights at this hotel, and we wouldn't mind to stay a bit longer.
The outdoor swimming pool was a great spot for us, and for our three old boy. Happily for us, we had a few moments nobody in the swimming area, so we had the swimming pool only for us, although the hotel was almost full... We believe that many guests were visiting the city that has lots of attractions, such as Portugal dos Pequenitos...
The food was also great, breakfast had a lot of variety, and after we tried the restaurant for dinner, we upgrade our stay to half-board. There was plenty of choice at the buffet restaurant, and delicious desserts too..
We have stayed in a double room with pool view, with one full bed, on the fourth floor. They told us that there's only one room with full bed per floor, it was available and we asked for it. The room could have a lit more space, we didn't ask a crib because our boy sleeps with us. We believe that rooms with two twin beds are more spacious than the one we had.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. Because of one element of the staff (lobby bar) we had discounts on food and accommodation and in the end it was really nice to pay less then we expected... She only asked us if it was our first time at Vila Gale Hotels. It was not, we did have earlier stay at Vila Gale da Ericeira and we also had a client card but it had expired... she manage to make us a new card from the old one, and we started to have discounts from then...
The only thing we really disliked was the fact that the pillows were really hight compared to the ones we use, so we had a few troubles in finding a nice position to sleep. We could also ear people in others rooms...
After all, it was great!
