We stayed here for 3 nights whilst doing a tour of Portugal with our 4 month old daughter. The room was a double with a pool view, it was large and well maintained with deceptively comfortable beds. Only complaint with the room is it had an ant problem for the last 2 problems! The hotel restaurant was excellent, the staff...

Ttired, dated with little atmosphere. Enormous foyer with little happening similar to the dining room. Pool table in the bar and over supply of TV screens did not help relaxation. The bar staff were slow to the point of torpor with little or no humour or communication skills. Uncomfortable seats in bar and smoking allowed. Rooms adequate. Breakfast selection good.

The hotel is clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, the buffet breakfast had something for everyone, the room we had was on the ground floor and was fairly spacious and quiet,...

Having just returned from the Vila Gale from a two week holiday, all I can say is I just wish that I had only booked for a one week. I have never seen so many walking sticks and wheel chairs in one Hotel in all my life. I think the average age of the guests must have been around 75/80,...
