“Péssimo custo beneficio em alta temporada”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

O resort e bem pequeno. Apenas duas piscinas medias e a praia.

Em alta temporada claramente nao tem estrutura para atender todos os hospedes.

Gastei 45min para conseguir falar na recepção. Nao há serviço de quarto. O restaurante self Service e geralmente lotado, com crianças correndo para todo lado.

Ano passado fiquei hospedado no iberostar praia do forte. Simplesmente nao há comparação. E como comparar um backpacker com um hotel 6 estrelas, sendoo vila gale o backpacker.

Faca voce um favor e vá para o iberostar praia do forte se nunca foi. Muitissimo melhor, maior e mais bem preparado do que aqui...

I was at Vila Gale Cumbuco earlier this month and would like to share some points. It wasn't a bad experience at all but I don't know if I am willing to come back.

Positive:
- Beautiful pool area
- Large and Comfortable Rooms
- Nice SPA

Negative:
- Food. I know it's difficult to keep high quality when cooking for big buffets, but I'm pretty confident that it's possible to improve A LOT.
- Slow service
- Amateur Kitesurfing lessons programme.
This last point deserve further comments as some peolpe choose Cumbuco as a destination for Kitesurfing. The natural conditions are pretty good but the lessons offered by the hotel are disappointing. The instructors have no comittment: You can arrange individual lessons but be surprised when you have to share the instructor with another people. They don't respect the time booked as well - I was left more than two hours waiting to be picked up for the lesson. Safety conditions could be improved as well.

Spent a few days here relaxing after hectic Rio. As part of a large party the English speaking staff looked after us very well. Not sure its the right place for couples or honeymooners.. Definitely not a quiet resort! lots of Brazilian pool activities, group salsa etc.great for children too. Rooms were cooly decorated, dont forget to request a hammock when checking in. Spa was high quality, massage treatments excellent. The beach and buggy riding in the sanddunes great fun. Food all buffet style, fabulous fruit selection at breakfast.. Good for a few days not two weeks.

Room Tip: Rooms in blocks are quiet...Chalets a bit noisier as some are near pool or restaurants

This is a typical family resort with all included
Lot's of apartments, services, and lots of activities.
The room's are quite nice, spacious, some with view to the coconuts and beach, the others to the resort.
They have a medical SPA, lots of treatments, therapy's and a fantastic inside pool.
Several restaurants, inside, outside, gourmet, you can chose the one you prefer, in my opinion the pool side restaurant is the best.
Nice beach, with a strong wind, perfect for kittesurfers.
Every night they prepare a entertainment show, and in the end of the day Portuguese wine degustation from Santa Victória Cellar.

Vila Gale Cumbuca has been agreat surprise. If you travel with children this is the place to be in Brazil. The kids club (Aldeia Nep) is the best in Brazil: kids rating. All the activities they've done were great. The hotel is new, good cleaness, great location (the beach is very good). Food is regular, not extraodinary but very diversified always with typical brazilian and portuguese food. We'll be back

Please make a diet before going, too much good food.
The kids club is 10 according to my son.
Satsanga spa is a luxury piece of heaven.
Swimming pool is outstanding.
Staff very kind and gentle.
Not too much activities for teens.
Nice live music at dance club. Spaceous cabins, clean, new, king size beds.
