A beautifully designed hotel with fabulous pool and grounds, spacious and very clean. But rather odd manequins of ten yers ago decorate the public areas, due to the vastness of the hotel this leads to a slightly frightening cold atmosphere. I visited in Feb 19 and it was ghostly

Dear Mr. Daveybick, Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear that overall your experience was positive. Due to a misunderstanding, I believe, you thing the manequins were with ten years, but in fact were all from 2018. We change it every year after the parades on the passerelles. I am disappointed to hear that the food didn't meet your expectations. This critical feedback will be used in training our staff. Thank you and look forward to seeing you again in future holiday. Kind regards Anibal Costa

We were at the Algarve and needed a hotel for an overnight stay. Since it was low season, we did not have any difficulty finding options. We found Vila Galé on the internet and decided to book it based on the favorable reviews. This was the first time, but definitely won’t be

The restaurant messed up our order, to the point that one of us received the wrong/ other's dish, and one patron did not get anything, even thought she ordered. After we said something to the waiter, they showed us our food and we asked them to wrapped it to go. 20 min later

We walked to downtown and to all the different beaches, am not sure which beach is Meia Praya. The beach near the hotel was not easy to get to and did not seem nice, but other beaches were lovely. Once you walk into town you will find them.We were with a tour group so did not use parking. You could probably e-mail the hotel and ask.Viale Gale is a chain and they are very accommodating.The beds were very comfortable. Don’t know what a trundle bed is.They have us two keys , am not sure if they would give you three.There are many great restaurants in town , about a 15 minutes walk, very easy to get to. All the restaurants were reasonable and good.I wrote a few up.The hotel also had a small restaurant by the pool, was great for lunch. We did not eat in their main restaurants. I would recommend go into town.The rooms very very nice and looked pretty new.Most of the Gale hotels wanted to charge us for a safe, so we locked our valuables in our suitcases.Don’t remember if this one had a safe. Hope you have fun there. You will love this property.
