Just returned form Vila Gale Lagos after a 10 day stay all inclusive with my Husband. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and had a fantastic holiday. The Hotel is set out in well kept grounds. Our room was on the 3rd floor giving a lovely view of sea, pool and Lagos town in the distance. Room was cleaned everyday, nice fresh linen bedding and towels. Because our stay was over 7 days we were granted with a pass to eat one night in both the A' La Carte Restaurant and the Italian Restaurant based within the complex and Wow...... all I can say is what a treat as the food was so good. Buffet in the evening was also very good and you could always find something delicious to eat...........fish,meat,salad,pasta etc.....and my favourite pineapple flambe with ice cream or fruit crumble.......scrummy. Everywhere was kept very clean. The Hotel boundary gate leads directly across the road and railway track to an amazing beach which, is scattered with pretty shells along the way. The staff were all very pleasant and courteous toward my husband and myself. Therefore a very BIG thank you to everyone at Vila Gale Lagos for contributing toward a wonderful holiday. We would be more than happy to return.

Just spent 3 days at this hotel and was a bit concerned the week before with some of the reviews on here but it was fantastic, the staff couldn’t be more helpful. We were upgraded to a sea view room when we arrived at it was only 10am and our room wasn’t ready so they found us one that was. We were all inclusive and everything was included, branded drinks, branded ice creams etc Buffet food was good, the Sunday was a seafood buffet and my boyfriend is allergic to sea food so at lunchtime the went and cooked him some turkey wasn’t a problem at all and then in the evening they had meat as well as fish. Buffet can be very similar but all the the food at the pool bar was also included we had lunch around the pool and buffet on an evening. It is perfect for a relaxing chilling holiday, was a 15 min walk into the town but the little train does stop right in front of the hotel and if wanted a taxi which we did one evening it was 4.50 euros. Only down point we found was that if you wanted to play pool you had to pay for that and we did one evening and it’s one set price 10.80 euros and we only played 3 games which seemed very expensive the following night we didn’t bother as didn’t want to pay that again.

We have just come back from staying at the Vila gale Lagos. I stayed here with my husband but we were part of a large group staying here with a mix of couples and families. Upon check in we were told that our room had been upgraded to a sea view room, which was lovely. The staff are all so friendly and approachable. Everyone we spoke to tried to have a laugh with you and it left a really good impression with us. The room itself (2002) was nice, with a lovely balcony area. The only downside I would say about the rooms are that everything is so noisy. I woke a few times in the early hours of the morning thinking someone was in the room when it was in fact our neighbours moving around in their room. We also unfortunately had a gentleman next to us who was sick every morning and you could literally hear everything ☹️ There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but you can hire a kettle at an extra cost. There are also no ironing facilities but we took a travel iron with us so no trouble. Just good to know before you go. The grounds of the hotel are spotless and staff work really hard to maintain them to a high standard. The pool areas are fantastic. The main pool is huge and we never struggled for a lounger. The facilities for children are great too. The children’s pool has a few slides and there’s a lovely little playground and area for the children to do arts and crafts etc. We stayed all inclusive and as part of the package you are able to dine in the Italian restaurant or the al a carte restaurant. We chose to dine in the Italian restaurant and unfortunately it wasn’t the best. I had the chicken tagliatelle and it tasted quite bland and wasn’t very warm. My husband also had garlic bread that was difficult to eat as it was so hard. The food in the main restaurant was nice. Nothing amazing, but nice all the same. Breakfast was lovely, it had everything you could want, but I felt food of an evening was just a bit too repetitive for my liking. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the hotel and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. The pros massively outweighed the cons and I’d recommend the hotel to anyone.

I think we have stayed here nearly every year since it opened in 2009 For us It just gets better and better. Our experience, from start to finish, is just fantastic. Mid September suits us best as the huge pool has heated up by then and there are not as many people . On arrival I asked for a pool view and I was immediately upgraded to a wonderful pool view room. Thank you Andreia Silva for organising that and for allowing us 2 towels each for the sun loungers. It's not easy to find the perfect hotel, but this comes close. 5 mins walk to one of the best beaches in Portugal, 20 mins walk into Lagos, plenty of taxis if you prefer. Everything about this hotel oozes class, you just know by looking at it. Breakfast is great, my only recommendation is that it would be nice to have fresh orange juice instead of the one supplied. I've got to mention Andre G here. He must be the best egg man ever! Cracking eggs, making pancakes, cooking omelettes, all at the same time, amazing! The hotel and pool areas were very clean and the bedrooms pristine every day. The hotel was spotless. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
