What a great hotel! Staff, facilities and food all fantastic! Don't even know where to start, from the quick very friendly check in to the amazing breakfast the big and beautiful swimming pool and great rooms, free and secure parking just outside the reception and fast wireless internet. What do you need more for a great holiday! Will be back for sure!

We were very impressed with the hotel and services. Our room was slightly smaller than expected but was very clean and perfectly adequate for a family of four. We had a great view of the pool and beach (the beach is a very short walk from the hotel). The restaurant offered a great choice with show cooking. However the restaurant gets very busy with queues at peak times although they are very efficient and you never waited long. The only downsides - some of the food was only luke warm and it can be very noisy.
Although we didn't take too much advantage of the kids club the staff were very friendly and helpful - my children loved the treasure hunt and zumba.
At the outdoor pool, getting a lounger with shade later in the day was often difficult although this was never a problem at the childrens pool (knee high water with slide). There is also a childrens play area.
Overall a great family holiday in a great location. Only about 10 mins walk from the marina and the centre of Lagos where there are lots of things to see and do. There are also lots of great boat trips from the marina- we went to the famous grottos (caves).

the hotel was very nice, new, comfortable, clean, the rooms are big, there is a big porch is every room. the hotel is 5 min from the sea, the hotel doesn't have a beach of there own, to get to the city its 20 min walk or 5 min in a car, the pools are very nice and big, although the water were very cold so we almost didn't get in to the pool. what we didn't like about the hotel is the breakfast, everyday the same breakfast, no selection, for people that have Lactose intolerance and pregnant there is a problem to find what to eat. another thing we didn't like, we asked five time from the reception body lotion and hair conditioner and we didn't get any, every time they were very surprise that we still haven't received what we asked, but still nothing, anther thing, they have a problem with the WiFi, at first we didn't have any problem but when the hotel were full, we couldn't log-in the WiFi for days! overall the hotel was nice, but we think there some things they need to work on if they want to earn the 4 stars.

Room tip: ask for a room with a pool view you can see the sea view too. you don't need to pay more, just ask a room on the third floor.

we stayed 7 day in the vila gale in June with our kids 10 and 7, I can't praise this hotel enough it was a fantastic stay and we will return. our hotel room was immaculate and the beds are the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on, the maids were in everyday and cleaned the room and made the bed. we were in a family room which was very spacious, the kids slept on a pull out sofa bed which again was very comfy and more than enough room for 2 of them.
the food was excellent always very fresh and always in abundance, breakfast was amazing lots of fresh fruit, cereal, pastries,continental , fruit juice and there was always a cooked option. we had lunch at the pool bar most days which was all fresh , there was a good selection as well, the ice cream selection was fab for all inclusive (which we were) dinner was always lovely and lots of selection, the salad selection was amazing and so fresh there was a good selection of meats and fish and lots of fresh vegetables every night. it's not a British hotel so you won't get British food but my kids ate very well and there was always something there they liked. we got to dine one night in the al a cart restaurant with our all inclusive because we stayed 7 or more nights. it was amazing the food was really nice and the waiter was really attentive, only small thing was they never had a children's menu but my kids are not fussy and they had pasta, but the portions were a but big for them had I known I would have only ordered 1 maim course for them to share.
the swimming pool was really nice, very clean and a fantastic size and depth, it's not heated but in 40 degree heat you are going in to cool down, we never had any problems getting sunbeds at various times of the day and the hotel was very busy.
the staff were very very good, accommodating and very friendly. they were very few British people there but we were made to feel very welcome and they were great with the kids.
there was a kids club but my 2 never used it so I can't comment on that but the kids reps were really friendly and energetic and there was no problems with language (they were not british) the nighttime entertainment was good, there was a parrot show one night , a magician one night and a fantastic Portuguese folk dance group which was really good. again it's not a British hotel so don't expect British entertainment.
we had an excellent time at the vila gale and can't recommend it highly enough.

Just returned from a weeks stay here and I have to say, I was very impressed.
The hotel is clean and modern, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet plentiful and tasty.
The pool area is huge and very cleverly designed to allow maximum sunbeds to be positioned around it. The hotel is away from the main part of Lagos (a 5 minute taxi ride) so its very quiet and free of the hustle and bustle you sometimes get with a hotel nearer to town.
Whilst I appreciate that the decor in the hotel is not to everyone's taste, its not as bad as some of the reviewers on here have said.
My only gripe with the hotel is the noise which can be heard when the maids are cleaning the rooms. The sounds of furniture being moved around can be heard quite clearly, but in all fairness, this happens after 9am when most people are awake anyway and you at least know they make a thorough job of the cleaning.
I do have to give a special mention to Galvao, the head waiter in the A La Carte restaurant. We ate here twice and his service on both occasions was second to none. He was attentive, made recommendations and was very knowledgeable about everything we asked him. He also understood British humour which was an added bonus!
Would definitely recommend anyone to stay here. A truly enjoyable place to be!
