Stayed at this hotel 8th October 2016 for 10 days, half board basis. 90mins transfer time from Faro airport. Check-in timeous, though very little hotel information given, esp as 1st time guests to this hotel. As other guests have commented the corridors leading to the bedrooms are very dark & poorly lit. Rooms have a grey/black/red colour theme. The restaurant... More

Really enjoyed the stay. Pool facilities were top class with plenty of loungers and space along with hot tub, sauna and gym. Restaurant (stayed half-board) was excellent and the menu varied each day. Decor in the room was new and spotless and has all mod cons you would expect. Only problem was there were no tea making facilities in the... More

We stayed here as part of a coach tour. The room was spacious and clean but the lighting was very dim. The room numbers were lighted which was very helpful as the corridor was also poorly lit. Breakfast was buffet style but the coffee was tepid every morning. The walk into Lagos was about a mile but an enjoyable one.... More

Well presented comfortable hotel with excellent staff. Location perfect, easy walk to the fabulous beach and Lagos town is a 10 minute stroll away. We stayed for a week fully inclusive and couldn't fault the food. Sometimes crowded but never a problem getting a good table and the food was constantly refreshed. The waiting staff, wine waiters and show chefs... More

We have just come back from Vila Gale Lagos and I found the hotel to be fantastic value, admittedly we stayed out of season but the staff we're incredibly pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was good and the room well appointed. We will return and I would recommend this hotel highly.

We stayed for a week at half term in October/early November. Weather was super whilst we were there, only one day or rain. The hotel is lovely, seems very posh on first arrival with the fashion theme, but it is mainly the same as the others in the chain just with a different theme. The hotel is about 15 minutes... More

Very large reception, very dark corridors. Rooms spacious, but had an invasion of ants in the bathroom and the tops in the bedroom. They were dealt with after our 2nd complaint. Staff were all lovely and helpful.some of the hot food was not hot, and some germans push and shove in the dining area, and there were many of them.... More

We spent a week on an All Inclusive Basis at this Hotel. First impressions were excellent nice big foyer and lovely rooms on the 3rd floor over looking the pool/gardens.

The overall hotel was a resort feel. Very big nice lobby with friendly staff. A large breakfast and dinner buffet. We had a car and it was perfect to drive to the surrounding areas. You could walk to Lagos from the hotel. As it was off season, we didn’t use the outdoor pool, but the one by the spa was... More
