“Vila Gale Marina Hotel”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is another holiday I could only ever dream of,the hotel was lovely as were the rooms,we had a top floor room so had a lovely view,only fault with this hotel is the sun around the pool moves rather quickly so you are not in the sun all the time (if you love lying in the sun ),The marina is stunning and such a lively night to be had round there,plenty of shops,bars and places to eat.couldn't ask for more,,such a golfing paradise if you love your golf,,don't do golf myself but came when it was the cup,,oh my god,,what an atmosphere,,loved every minute of this[place

Room Tip: higher floors are the best as the views are awesome

We stayed at The Villa Gale Marina hotel 4 years ago for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute of it, so much so we booked again for the following year again for 2 weeks.

Our room had the WOW factor on each occasion as it was high up and overlooked the marina. The balcony was large enough to sit out comfortably and enjoy the evening sunshine before stepping out for a meal or a drink and particularly the friendliness of Figo's Bar.

Entertainment in the hotel was virtually the same each night so certainly not worth stopping in for but that didn't bother us.

We had full board on the second occasion but skipped a few meals to eat out.

Always take your own travel kettle if you like a cuppa in your room. There is a fridge where you can store milk and soft drinks/beers.

I would certainly recommend this hotel for couples but not really for families with small children who may want more entertainment during the day and evening.

Room Tip: Go for level 6 or above overlooking marina.

We stayed at the Vila Gale Marina for the fourth time and again could not fault it, it is clean, comfortable and the staff are always helpful. The food is good with a good choice for both breakfast and dinner, The hotel is just a short walk from the Marina and also near the bus stop for either Albufera or Faro, The hotel is excellent value and with a great view of the Marina from the balconies. And if the weather is not good it has the indoor swimming pool with sauna and hot tub. We would not hesitate to use this hotel again.

Great hotel in a fantastic location close to the beautiful marina. We were bed and breakfast which was nicely presented. The rooms were adequate and clean however , could have a little more space for your clothes. Fantastic views on the higher floors looking out over the marina to the sea. Great value for money !

Room Tip: Select high floor for great views over the marina.

Excellent hotel , staff and resort .Had one evening meal and two lunchtime snacks in the hotel which was good , service was excellent and staff friendly . Personally ,i think its the best located hotel in Vilamoura with the Marina directly in front and the sea behind with spectacular views of both from the hotel . A wonderful relaxing break at this time of year, would stay here again .

Room Tip: The higher floors obviously have a better view , we had a lovely room on the 7th floor.
