We stayed at Vila Gale-Lagos yesterday as part of an organized tour. The hotel is lovely, sits near a beach that could rival anything Hawaii has to offer, but the staff exceeded all expectations when it came to service.
Unfortunately, shortly after arriving my wife became ill and was unable to participate in the tour. During our three days at the hotel numerous members of the staff provided her with extra comforts such as tea, extra towels, and an endless supply of plastic bags for use when she was ill. The staff also assisted in getting her to the local clinic and were helpful exploring other options when it appeared she might be too ill to leave on schedule. Luckily, we were able to get to Lisbon on the tour bus and will have a few days here for her to recuperate before making the trip home.
This hotel gets my highest recommendations for the quality of the staff, but also for the excellent facilities and the great food.
