Apart from some small problems that we reported to the staff, we had a very pleasant one-night stay at Vila Galé. The room had a wonderful sea view and a very sunny balcony, was mint clean, and plus a large choice of bed pillows. We slept with the sea sounds all night!
The breakfast had a huge variety of both hot and cold meals, and a lot of choice, even at the breakfast end time (10h30). We also found the "Pirata" bar quite cozy. The staff were nice all around, and the overall opinion is that we will probably be back again, given the opportunity.
The only big let-down was the SPA, which is only accessible from the street (terrible during Winter), and seems a bit "separated" from the hotel, as you can only be given information on the available services at the spa's reception, and not at the hotel's main reception.
As a final tip, the car park seems a bit small for such a big hotel, but in the street there is some free parking spaces (not many, though). On the bright side, all the village is accessible at a walking distance, so just leave the car in the park and stroll around!
