We arrived at the Villa Gale Marina by default, hoping for a little peace and quiet after being transferred from the sister hotel Villa Gale Ampulius, after having to enduring constant loud building noise over three days from the major building works being carried out there. That aside on arrival at the Villa Gale Marina our room was seriously cold,...

The hotel is excellently positioned with great views of the port, which is a few minutes away on foot. Beach is around 10 minutes away. Nice staff and clientele. Room was clean with a big balcony. There was a good selection of food available at breakfast and at the pool bar. Overall a great stay.

Reception area lacks a sense of luxury. It is very much a golfers base. It is geared towards their needs and they are very much on the go and have a different agenda to a regular holiday maker. Having said that, it was a pleasant hotel with a very nice pool area. You could always decide to sit in sun...

Just 100m from the beach, with bars and restaurants all around. What more could you ask for??? Oh, and the Hotel and service provided was excellent. And for once the beds were fantastic. I don't sleep well at home but these were the best. Our party of 32 people all agreed on that.

Clean and tidy hotel with spacious rooms and a great view over the harbour from the large balconies. Comfortable beds, maid service every day, and a very good buffet breakfast make this hotel an excellent choice when staying in Vilamoura. We stayed late November 2016 and the hotel was nice and quiet (which we prefer).
