I'll caveat my review by saying the Algarve is not my idea of a perfect beach vacation. There are places with warmer water and better beaches that I'd prefer. Vilamoura in general is hot in the summer while the wind and water are hard to deal with. My wife and I stayed here with her family, and it was a... More

Arrived at 1300 and were informed that our room would not be ready until around 1400; the receptionist did offer the locker room in the spa to shower and change if we wanted; as we were not prepared for this wash bags etc. were spread over the pieces of luggage so not that easy to do so we decided to...

Opposite the hotel is a massive dance hall playing loud music into the early hours. Hard to sleep. Apparently the hotel are unable to do anything about it. In the hotel now. When the club closes, revellers remain in the street making excessive noise. Truly awarful.

What a mistake that was. Opposite the Hotel is the open air nightclub Purobeach and round the corner is the Seven... More

We enjoyed a fantastic holiday with a junior suite, sea view. The kids really enjoyed seeing King Neptune at breakfast each day. Lovely hotel, great facilities and a stunning view. Will definitely return.

What a beautiful hotel, in an excellent location. Family rooms with a sea view, absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful food and polite staff. Unfortunately our perfect holiday turned into an utter nightmare when none of us could get any sleep due to the Boom Boom Boom of the nightclub "Puro Beach" right opposite our room. The loud banging music went on every... More

June 2016, party of eight staying 5 nights on a golf trip. The Vila Gale Ampalius is an O.K hotel with a great Vilamoura location. It is a stone throw from both the beach and the marina with all its bars and restaurants and is a good base for the local golf courses. We obviously had a budget twin bed... More
