We stayed here for a birthday bash. The hotel has over 200 rooms but does not feel overcrowded apart, perhaps for breakfast of which more anon. While we were staying the hotel was full. The location is good being a 5 to 10 minute walk from the centre of town. It is a bit longer to the other side of...

If you can get past the fact that you need to drive to the beach, this is an excellent place to stay. Good as expected. Staff friendly and welcoming. Good sized adjoining room for the kids and a nice pool.

We recently visited the lovely town of Tavira and stayed in the Vila Gale. We had a lovely room overlooking the outdoor pool with a sunny position on our balcony. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff from the reception team, housekeeping and restaurant team were all most friendly and helpful. The breakfast had plenty of variety with delicious...

I don't fancy hotels that are made for mass tourism! It is the case. Anyway, one must say that everything was neat, clean and in order. The room was large, the bed was comfortable, the air conditionned was silent, the toilet was spacious. Breakfast had a large variety of choices and the quality was quite good. The garage had lots...

Overall good rooms, nice size and view. Nicely cleaned. Air conditioned - though it made a clicking sound after 15 minutes or so of being on. Great location for walks into town and not far from the beach (or golfing opportunities). Breakfast was good, though a little under-staffed. Pools are a distance apart from changing rooms, and outdoor one is...

Had a lovely early spring break last week at the Vila Gale. With it being early in the season, we were a bit concerned that some of the large communal areas may be a bit cold and cavernous at this time of the year. We needn't have worried - everywhere was warm and welcoming. I had emailed ahead with a...

We booked this hotel for it's great location and massive pool. But as it was in the spring months the pool wasn't warm enough to use. So that was a key part of coming ruined. The hotel isn't spaced very well as the indoor pool and outdoor pools are on the opposite side of the hotel. It was very busy...

we were advised to choose vila Gale Tavira by a friend who lives in Tavira .This is because of its location.It is very central with walking distance to local restaurants around the romantic and military bridges. The staff at the reception were not that helpful. We got an invitation in our room for a complementary drink at the reception on...

The hotel is well placed for a visit to Tavira, a delightful town in the Algarve, but close to the Spanish border. The hotel staff were good, especially K/Caterina and Tania. Breakfast was fine, but the staff can become outrun by large parties. They can clear away but don't always have time to reset the tables, that would be no...

We booked this hotel as we were going golfing and wanted to be central. The staff on reception were a bit aloof to begin with, we asked for a double room but were told hotel full . however they were very helpful with other queries. Our room was clean and spacious,but the bed was very firm. We requested tea and...
