My husband and I are just back from a lovely relaxing week at the Vila Gale. This is a lovely relaxing hotel. It is a very large hotel and I imagine is not authentically portaguese but a good option, particularly for this time of the year, when the weather is mixed. When we arrived we had a booked a sea...

Having stayed a few years ago at the Gale in Estoril, I had some idea of what the standard would be. Perhaps the main feature of this Albufeira hotel is the quality of the staff. The corridors are a little dark, as a previous reviewer mentioned, the rooms are not of the latest style, and the breakfast really leaves quite...

Hotel looks nice from outside, but the dark corridor, the red color wall in room looks horrible. When you try to go into the room at night, you can see nothing. It took me few minutes to find the slot to put the key in, in order to get some light in the room, it's ridiculous dark in the corridor!...

Vila Gale is a beautiful hotel with spacious clean rooms. Can not say enough about the staff. They were not only friendly, but most accommodating. The food was good, but could have a little more variety. Would highly recommend it. It was also a short walk to Lagos which was a beautiful town with lots of shops, restaurants and interesting...

I stayed as part of a group of 19 with an all-inclusive package. Generally we ventured out for lunch during outings or in the town of Lagos, which worked well. The meals were generally varied and we had one special meal per week in a small dining room. The special dinners were excellent. Staff were very attentive in the dining...

The Vila Gale hotel is a smart hotel with a contemporary feel. The communal areas are spacious with a relaxed atmosphere; the staff are extremely polite and attentive, with the Reception staff in particular always happy to assist in a most professional way. The proximity of the beach is excellent, and the short walk to the town of Lagos is...
