Stayed at the Vila Gale Nautico from 15th to 22nd September 2007. The hotel was clean but if you can manage without sleep for 7 nights the Vila Gale Nautico is the place for you!
We experienced noise from the apartment above as well as next door and in the corridors and restaurant until 3am and again early in the mornings. There was no escaping the noise. We also didn't use our balcony as had continuous smoke wafting from the balcony next door!
The dinner buffet is particularly poor, although advertised from 7pm - 10pm, there is no food after 8.30pm as they do not re-stock food. Breakfast okay but quite a stressful experience with the number of people at the small buffet.
Staff were generally miserable apart from the reception staff and customer service with a smile is not the done thing! Not what I would expect from a 4 star hotel.
The location is not particularly pretty, and staying on B&B basis, we struggled to find decent restaurants in Armacao de Pera and the area does not provide for strolling along the prom.
On a positive note, the rooms were cleaned every day and the pool is nice, with no fighting for sun beds although we stayed out of season.
Would not return or recommend this hotel, primarily because I like my peace and quiet on holiday especially at night, fail to see how this hotel makes its 4 star status.
