Certificate of Excellence

This hotel has stellar service, cleanliness and quality in everything they provide. Food is always fresh and delicious and available at all times. Rooms are large and very well maintained. Service is top notch.

I have stayed at many five star hotels in my business travel and this hotel has nothing to envy them. In many cases it actually exceeds five star standards including a formidable crew.

Cumbuco and vila gale are the perfect combination to enjoy one of the most beautiful places on earth with infinite beaches , wind and sun and stay at a world class hotel that makes it an absolute pleasure all around.

By far the worst all-inclusive I have had the misfortune of staying at. The food was mediocre at best, the service horrendous all of the time and the beach could not be used because of the high winds, rip tides, sharks, jellyfish and trash everywhere. There were drunken teenagers banging on doors all night. DO NOT STAY HERE. Go somewhere - anywhere - else. Especially for North American travellers, this will not meet any of your expectations. Also in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do except eat, drink and lie by the pool.

Room Tip: Choose a room at another resort.

The Hotel Vila Galé Cumbuco provides as interesting experience for those who wants to rest in almost deserted beach.
The Hotel consists of two buildings of apartments and chalets among them, the sea and the pool.
I was in a master chalet, almost 90 square meters, just in front of the beach, but not exactly overlooking the sea, because there are some dunes between the hotel and the sea in some places.
The meal plan is all inclusive and the food was good.
The pool is large and leisure activities are close together.
Spa is very interesting and relaxing place. Saunas are great and there are a awesome menu of esthetic treatments.
For those who want to try kite surfing, Cumbuco is the right place, with constant and intense wind.
The beach is full of dunes and almost no vegetation.
The sea is not recommended for unaccompanied children.
The Vila Gale Hotel needs to worry a bit about cleaning the dunes around it, because the wind pushes the garbage left by some people in the sand.
It is a relatively new resort hotel and worth a stay for a few days.

Room Tip: Standard roons have 45 meters square and they are closer to the front desk. Superior rooms have the...

We stayed here 7 days in September. It's a great place to bring your family. Food is excellent and staff is friendly. They have a very good area for kids to play which gave me all the freedom I needed to kitesurf in front of the resort where the waves are the best.

However, they mix business conferences with resort guests. When we were there they had a 400 people conference and they closed down one of the a la carte restaurants and we could not eat there for 3 days. They should tell guests about up coming conferences.

Vila Gale Cumbuco Resort was my last month business trip in Ceara. This resort is located 33 km from the Fortaleza Airport. It offers bungalows and rooms with furnishings and balconies as well as every room has private bathrooms, TV and minibar. A breathtaking view and the clearest sky you will ever see. The resort also has a library and a big playground for children, here I was getting relaxed in the sauna, and taken a swim in the outdoor pool. Overall this resort is a great destination for staying.

This is for sure a place for families. You dont have to worry about a thing. NIce beach and amenities. It is hard to decide what you eat, and if you´re not pleased with the choices, the manager can order whatever you like. Kids have plenty of activities, and if you have a baby, they have babbysitter services as well as a full prepared kitchen. Every night they set up a different party, there is no boredom overthere.
