Superb beach location, really good for families with young children and the hotel offers wheelchair access. The staff there are always happy to assist with requests made and will step out of the box to make it a good experience. We had a junior suite with seaview, rooms are large and cleaned daily. Special Thanks to Manuel Nabais for preparing... More

Had felt slightly wary about returning for a second stay at the Vila Gale Atlantico after reading some of the recent reviews. However, we were so pleased to see some familiar staff working within César Gaspar's Team and any doubt or concern quickly disappeared. The hotel continues to update it's rooms and the food, drinks and entertainment remains at a... More

This was not our first visit to Vila Gale Atlantico and it most certainly will not be our last! The Staff, cleanliness and food were all second to none. The location is idyllic and the weather was amazing - a definite bonus...

We were booked at the sister hotel nearby when we had a change of dates and needed to stay here for a night since the other was booked. It was a nice stay, quiet for the size of the hotel but as it was the first night of our honeymoon, we would have preferred the nearby adults only hotel. The... More

I spent 10 nights at this hotel with my best friend for a girl's holiday, and really enjoyed it! The hotel is about 45 minutes from Faro airport by road. When we arrived we were told our rooms would be ready within an hour, so we went to the restaurant for lunch. The buffet restaurant serves excellent food, and the... More

I stayed at this hotel in July. It's very close to the beach and a few restaurants there. However anywhere else that you need to go required a taxi ride. My first experience in our room was a block shower and then a blocked toilet. The staff cleared right a way but it was never really fixed. Housekeeping did a... More

Dear Ms. Laura, We thank your review. Apologize for the inconvenience. Despite our efforts, we were not fast as much as desired. The Kitchenette is plus that we offer to our guests, and it is cleaned at the exit. The hotel is located at 8 km from Albufeira downtown. The beach "Praia da Galé" is a 300 meters of distance....

The hotel has an ideal location, being a short walk to the stunning beach and a short bus ride or a 10 euro taxi ride (about 5 kilometres) from the popular town of Albufeira, The Apartments are clean, spacious and well equipped.

I feel very let down by my trip to the Vila Gale Atlantico, considering the rating, previous reviews and how much the holiday cost. There were positives and negatives that I'll try to summarise below: + Very clean hotel + Modern, spacious room (we had the Junior Suite) + Great beach down the road + No limit on drinks (all...

We visited the Algarve during June/July for one week and booked via FirstChoice. The general look of the hotel is modern and fresh and has excellent cleanliness. The rooms are large and except for the beds being a little hard and are small twin beds, there were no real complaints there. The reception however could be greatly improved. Nothing was... More
