Just returned from a six night stay at Villa Gale Ericeira. We had a third floor room with sea view and balcony and it was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent and the staff very helpfull. Loved the grounds, pools and position of the hotel is outstanding with great views and close proximity to the town.Our granddaughter particularly enjoyed the kiddies playground. We are certainly looking forward to another stay.

Room Tip: Go for sea view and balcony on third floor

Again this year we spent a fabulous week at the Vile Gale, but there is always room for improvement espeically after our comments from last year. Rooms are top drawer as is the service, but its the little things, - towels ugh so thread bare as are the incidentals in the bathroom - where's me nail file. We go B and B, but the brealfast has improved somewhat but the toaster - the queue for this is horrendous so much so that we queue for the toast before we get anything else. Mateus is magnificent, he knew us girls needed our brew in the morning - well done

Room Tip: Got to have sea view - its breathtaking

Stayed 12 nights end of July. Lovely salt water pool and great ocean view. Great surf possibilities and surprising good food at all restaurants in the small town. Especially recommend Prim for meat and Toca de Caboz for fish meals. Nice bar in the hotel's cellar with a pool table for some hustling possibilities. Tennis and squash courts close by as well as nice gym and spa facilities at the hotel

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a view of the ocean. it's breathtaking

My wife and I were driving through Ericeira and stopped at a viewpoint on the south end of town. From the view point we saw this hotel and since we had the time we decided to stay there for one night.
The front counter staff were distant, too prim and proper for my liking, not much personal;ity. They were efficient.
The location is perfect, right on the shore of a peaceful lagoon. Our room was on the first floor overlooking the ocean with a very nice large balcony and comfortable chairs.
For the price, the room was pretty average. We stayed in rooms as nice or nicer for a lot less than we paid for this hotel.
Obviously the room had AC.
WiFi was available for free in common areas.
Parking is a joke. The hotel is huge and they have parking spots for about 20 cars. If you are not lucky enough to find a vacant spot, you are hunting for parking on the roads around the hotel. For €114 per night, I would expect an assigned parking spot. However, there are not a lot of hotels in Ericeira. It's what you call a captive audience.
I must give the hotel credit, their breakfast was by far the best we had in a month in Portugal.
There are 2 pools,both too cold for enjoyable swimming. The lounge chairs are plentiful & comfortable. According to the front counter, the hotel was full; we still had no trouble finding a chair and a spot right on the ocean.

Would I stay there again.
Probably not. It was late in the day when we arrived so we really didn't scout the town for alternative accommodation. It was OK for the one night but for the price,I would expect more, a lot more.

Room Tip: ocean view rooms are about 10 -15€ more than rooms on the back side. The view is great. Is it worth it? That's for you to decide.

stayed 4 nights early may, we were very happy with the views from seaside balcony, super!
Room it self was a little bit small, 2 adults+ 1 child, but the weather was super and we only spend the nights in the room. We loved the breakfast and the hotel it self was nice, we could go there again.
