The hotel was beautiful with an excellent pool. Our rooms were very comfortable and the showers were nice. The staff as quite helpful and kind during our stay. The beach access was relatively close (3-5 minute walk). The walk to town was pretty and took around 20 minutes. We had a great stay.

After a day driving through the Algarves visiting many beaches , we concluded that our decision to stay at Vila Gale Lagos was a good one . It's set next to a stunning beach - long sandy expanses , beautiful water and crowded but not unpleasantly so as many we saw . It's a pleasant 15 minute walk into Lagos... More

Here for a week with teenage kids and we've done this sort of holiday enough to know what we want. Clean, comfortable luxurious enough for our budget - not tight but not limitless - with access to a 'proper' beach (I'm an Aussie - we have standards ;) ), maybe some surf nearby and enough cultural things to do in...

This hotel is big and modern . The room was light and airy with plenty of space. The bed was comfortable. The pool was big. The breakfast area was large and an extensive choice of foods on the offering. Champagne for breakfast. Yeah! The ocean is a very short walk across the road. Lovely beach!

Vila Gale is a large beachside hotel on the outskirts of Lagos. Rooms are comfortable and clean and the hotel has excellent facilities with a large swimming pool area. The buffet breakfast is extensive. I didn't eat in the hotel in the evening so cannot comment on the evening meal. Access to both the beach and Lagos is easy. Overall... More

This holiday was booked as a last minute getaway for my partner and I, after endlessly searching we decided on the Vila gale Lagos, mainly swayed by recent trip advisor recommendations , and we was not disappointed.

Clean, efficient, modern hotel. The facilities are very good but for me the selling point was access to a nice, safe beach and a pleasant walk along the same beach in to Lagos town. Use the tiny water taxi (60 centimes each way!) to get you across the river and save walking all the way up and round the Marina.... More

Great hotel for Portuguese beach holiday. Generous breakfast buffet. Plenty of sun loungers by the outdoor pool. A few minutes walk to the beach. Close to the sights of Lagos but you could equally spend all your time at the hotel. Would visit again!

Location for us was perfect as we like to walk a little and only takes 20 minutes to the Marina. Clean and modern with friendly reception staff. Lovely pool and pool area with exit gate to fantastic long beach. Offering beach bars and fantastic beach walks. Pool area spoilt by so called adult entertainment but music is rap/reggae or disco...
