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... More

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... More

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. We were half board and the food was pretty good with a bit of variation each night buffet style. Breakfast too was buffet style but no variation here. Coffee was not great and not... More

We had booked a room with balcony and sea view for the weekend. Unfortunately we arrived a bit late and at check-in got a room with spacious balcony, but one had to imagine the sea behind a tree. We asked for another one, and staff at reception took great care to work out a solution as they were almost fully... More

We have stayed here three times now and we think it's the nicest hotel in Ericeira. It overlooks the bay and beach of Praia do Sol. The rooms are very nice, although our 'King bed' was in reality two singles pushed together. The room was very spacious though. The buffet breakfast was very nice with a wide range of items... More

This big Hotel has both fresh and salt water pools, both with fantastic view over the hills and beach close by. The city of Ericeira has a lots of restaurants and shops, and a great atmosphere at night time. The breakfast buffet has various food, but the quality could definitely improve.

If you wish to experience the waves, wind (and most probably the fog) from the Atlantic Sea, this hotel is as close to it as it gets. With its 100 years of history in the walls, the sophisticated 'good old days' still can be noticed, blended with its updated and modern environment. Fresh fish from the ocean and surfers from...
