“Excellent Hotel In A Great Location”
Reviewed January 9, 2011

A family group of 7 of us stayed for 10 nights and had a fantastic time. The location was absolutely incredible and the people around were very friendly. At the hotel, the rooms were modern and spacious, very comfortable, the food was delicious and the hotel was very clean throughout. The hotel had lots of facilities which kept us well entertained. The pool area was our favourite, and it had lots of sunbeds! The staff were friendly and were always there to help you if needed. We like it so much we have rebooked to go back in June. A special Thank You to Maria for the Birthday cake we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Dear Guest,

Two years have passed! But is not to late to say thank you for your review and comments about you experience in Vila Galé Náutico in 2011.

I´m starting this year as the new General Manager of this great hotel, and one of the first priorities is to reply to the many guests that spent their time to share their experience in Vila Galé Náutico.

Your comments and suggestions are an important tool for our constant pursuit of service improvement.

Your comments helped us to continue trying to exceed the expectations of our guests. And that´s why that VILA GALÉ HOTELS had made some important renovations in the public areas and hotel services with a very good team.

Vila Galé Náutico is now an All-Inclusive Hotel since 2012.

Armação de Pêra is also different and much nicer after the finishing of the construction works and specially with the new promenade facing the sea.

Vila Galé Náutico All-Inclusive Hotel also now provides to all our guests a unique service of 54 excursions during all week, local programs, rent-a-car and bike and very complete information of the public transports network available. Everything that you need to have a excellent experience in the Algarve. Please contact our front-office team.

On my own behalf and on that of the Vila Galé Nautico Hotel team, we hope we have the honour of hosting you again in a near future.

Kind regards

We arrived at vila gale Nautico on 23rd Setember, hotel was good value for money, and in a good location within walking distance of the beach (literally 2 mins away and is lovely), shops, restaurant etc. The room was a good size and clean, the breakfast was good. My daughter loved the park in the complex.
The town is beautiful, once we got the touristic train (bus stop just near the hotel).
We went to zoomarine for the day (our transfer driver got us cheaper tickets, we book on www.yorfaroairporttransfers.com) it was fab… If you have kids you must go..l. Food was ok al restaurants were nice, but we find a paradise spot on the beach, the place was call Carlos Beach Bar, if u like to eat fresh fish then this is the right place for you, from our hotel we could walk down the beach (about 30 min of relaxing walk)
We had a real good time, hotel was nice, located in walking distance to the shops, restaurants, beach, weather was hot, r 2 year old absolutely loved it,culdnt of asked for more.
I hope we can return, next year. If you want any tips, feel free to email me at Katerinagrmh33@gmail.com.
Merry Xmas

We unfortunately had our resort changed the day before we were due to fly out to Portugal, originally expecting to be on the outskirts on Albufeira and much closer to the airport so our expectations of the replacement were fairly high. We were put in a room as far from Reception as we could have been although the hotel wasn't full and the only way out of the hotel was through Reception.
There was no kettle or any way of making a cup of tea/coffee in the room - only by asking for room service. The mini bar fridge was not full and we asked whether the bottles in it could be removed and were told that if they were would have to pay a hire charge for the fridge. Needless to say we managed to get a couple of bottle of water in the fridge without removing anything.
We didn't eat in the Restaurant as it seemed to be quite expensive and as we were due to be going on an apartment holiday had not planned to eat out every night so haad a limited budge. The only thing that kept us sane for the whole week was a very nice British bar called the Olde Tavern run by 2 very friendly ladies - Fran and Pat. The food was excellent and they were good enough to introduce everyone who came through the door to each other so that instant friendships were made and there was loads of banter. The beach was absolutely crowded on the one day we ventured to it and as our room was so far from the pool I didn't fancy wondering around the hotel in swimming gear so didn't use it. Only found one of the reception staff helpful and friendly - the rest it seemed to be too much trouble for!

First I want to clarify any doubts about Armação de Pera.
This is a small Portuguese Village, destination of many portuguese families during the summer so you will hear portuguese a lot.

If you are looking for party and discos, shops and you want to hear english all day long, forget Armação de Pera. You should try Albufeira.
On the other hand if you want relaxing hollidays near the beach, long relaxing walks and nice familiar restaurants, this place its perfect!

I must say i loved this hotel. The staff is very friendly and kind.
They gave us a room on the first floor, but we dont like the floor level. We ask for another and immediately they gave us one at the 4th floor.

The room was clean and confortable.
(The first day it was clean only during the afternoon, but all the others during morning.)

Loved the breakfest buffet, loved the location about 100 meters from the beach.

Many portuguese, spanish, english, dutch and french guests, during last week (6-11 September)

I think this hotel its perfect for families and specially for children.

We are only back from our stay in this hotel( 9th aug to 22nd aug). would definetly not rate it as a 4 star hotel, rooms were filthy dirty and somes days not cleaned at all. We stayed on a B&B basis but even that service and quality of the food was terrible. some mornings there would be impossible to get a table due to staff not cleaning them. food was very poor. and staff did not want to help. the snack bar is a joke we sent food back and they handed it out to someone else.. overall would not stay here. whole hotel needs a complete re-vamp of the staff and surroundings.
