Returned to Vila Gale as 2nd choice this trip, as 1st choice was fully booked. Just luckily got into Vila Gale as all the rooms in October seem to get booked up with Tours. Really glad we didn't venture out beyond Vila Gale - it's a wonderful facility and you just can't beat the location, staff, views and dining. The...

We spent five nights at the Vila Gale Ericeira in a sea view room with balcony. I believe some rooms face the town and some have sea view but no balcony. Breakfast was very nice with a wide choice of: egg omelettes made to order, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, boiled eggs, bacon, baked beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, sausages, pancakes, frittata in...

This hotel was huge! Just outside of the city! Easy walking distance to the city centre with all the restaurants, shopping and night life. The cobble stone street looked polished! The hotel was clean and the rooms where spacious! The breakfast was great and the sitting area outside beautiful. The pools looked amazing but it was a little too cool...

We were a 3-generation family traveling to Ericeira for the first time. The Vila Gale was a wonderful base for our stay. The rooms were fine. We had sea views which we would recommend. The outdoor facilities overlooking the ocean were outstanding offering many places to sit outdoors on the ocean and three swimming pools (although it was a bit...

Very well located, just sea front, Vila Gale Ericeira is one of the best options around Lisbon at the marvelous Portuguese Atlantic coast. Rooms are well decorated, service was competent, and hotel amenities are above average with nice swimming pools. Breakfast also very good. Highly reccommended

This branch of Vila Gale is located right on the coast. We had 5 wonderful nights here. The rooms are well kept and cleaned daily. The beds do not have the too soft mattresses that many hotels have, so my back is happy after this vacation. The dining room is big, but with a number of tables looking over the...

Fabulous hotel in Ericeira an old fishing village 30Km west of Lisbon. Ericeira is a quaint town with excellent beaches, lots of interesting streets to stroll through, good eating, shopping a little less impressive. The Vila Gale is an impressive building, very close to the town and situated right on the Atlantic. This keeps the area cool and fresh even...

We paid extra for an Ocean View and got it on two sides of the room. You could really hear the waves crashing against the rocks.
