“Amazing in Every Way”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

I'd like to begin this review by saying that the previous reviewer (tiger1957) must have stayed in a different hotel! My husband and I have recently returned from a 2 week stay at Vila Gale which was partly to celebrate a 'big' birthday of mine. From the moment we stepped into the foyer we knew we'd made the right choice. When we explained the reason for our trip and asked if there was a possibility of a sea view, thereceptionists went out of their way to try and allocate us such a room, even though the hotel was quite busy. We were in fact given room 1084, on the ground level from where we had a lovely view of the sea from the balcony. I have no problem with balcony privacy, after all you wouldn't expect to sit by the pool or on the beach by yourself. The room was excellent, with lots of space although some drawers would have been a good idea at the bedside and a shelf in the bathroom for toiletries, but these are niggardly things in comparison to the rest of the hotel. Room service was fantastic with sheets etc changed regularly and towels changed every day. I even returned to find my nightdress laid out beautifully on the bed. The large lounge area next to reception was bright, airy and comfortable, and excellent place for reading the morning paper! The little snackbar was ideal for an afternoon drink etc As for the restaurant, we were staying on an 'all inclusive' basis and we can honestly say we were spolit for choice! The waiters were friendly and attentive, dirty plates were quickly removed and wine etc topped up.The food was amazing with many dishes appearing which one would expect at high class restaurants along side the local dishes. Relaxing after dinner in the 'Blues and Soul' bar with a cocktail or a beer was just perfect. Some of the entertainment on offer was very good, especially the Live Music.The cleanliness of the hotel needs to be seen to be believed, we even saw some cleaners on their hands and knees scrubbing between the tiles on the floor. The whole area including the hotel was spotless. There were only a couple of things we felt need to be adjusted, firstly the Courtesy Bus, for the number of people wanting to use it, a 15 seater 3 times aday is not sufficient. Quite a number of times we tried to book a seat, only to be told it was full. True, there is a cheap efficient service bus into Funchel, but my point is if there is a service offered by the hotel it needs to be more readily available. Also the charge to use the indoor pool etc is far too high (11 euro) for paying guests. If like us you're there for 2 weeks and you wish to use the facilities everyday, it becomes too expensive. My experience in the past of 'all inclusive' holidays is that the in door pool etc was either free or a token payment of perhaps 1 or 2 euro. As the weather while we were there wasn't at its best (something the hotel has no control over) we would have liked to havemade more use of the in door pool as it was, my swimsuit never got wet. Lastly, the Italian Restaurant didn't quite come up to our expectations on the one night we booked to use it. Perhaps we're rather picky, but both my husband and I are veterans of Italy and it's food, this restaurant wasn't any of these. Santa Cruz is a lovely quiet little village with a nice promenade for walking off all the wonderful local pastries! The hotel is only 6 years old so it is obviously very modern and uptodate. It throughly deserves its 4 star rating, in fact I would go so far as to say it should perhaps be a 5. We have already recommended it too our friends and we hope to return ourselves in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel, away from the road.

My fiance and I had spent a week at the superb Riu Palace in Canico de Baixo and due to a cancelled return flight, were put-up in the Vila Gale for one night by Thompsons. The difference between the two hotels was unbelievable. The Riu Palace was a magnificent and grand hotel serving first class food with an unbelievable choice. Staff were smartly dressed and attended to all your needs throughout the day, whether around the pools or within the hotel. facilities were first class. How anyone can say the Vila Gale was a 4 star hotel beggars belief. Our room was dull and shabby and the carpet was filthy. We looked out onto broken down houses and had to listen to aircraft noise as they flew only feet above the hotel. The evening meal was a disgrace, with little choice or quality and was barely edible compared to the Riu Palace. The dining room resembled a cafeteria in a large department store. Breakfast was even worse. Milk accompanying the cereals was sour and the limited hot section of food was either cold or in short supply. Only one cook was available to fry eggs in a single frying pan, whilst at the same time cooking an omelette in another small pan on the only other ring. During both dinner and breakfast, long queues meant waiting between 5 and 10 minutes for food and drinks. I spoke to several couple on our delayed flight and they all felt this hotel was was of a very low standard. I would never use this hotel again, even in an emergency and would not advise anyone I know to use it either.

Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Beach front location is excellent. Rooms are spacious and well-equipped, although they have their niggles- for example no drawers in bed side units. Beds are very hard, which was fine for me but not for my wife. Our balcony had frosted glass between it and next door; some however had plain glass which might be a privacy issue. Food was pretty good- not a huge choice on any one day, but plenty of variation. Some breakfast items were cold- eg scrambled egg.
We had half board, being out every day in our hire car. Parking was ok- there's an area on the western side of the hotel round the back. It was annoying to find one of the 4 front spaces occupied by a driving school car every day. Santa Cruz has several bars and restaurants but no real night life (which was not a problem for us). A beer in the evening in the town square was pleasant and cheap. Hotel entertainment was OK, although the Saturday parrot show lasted about 15 minutes- the show presenters seemed to be focussed on getting you to buy a photograph of you with a macaw on your shoulder rather than anything else.

Room Tip: Full seaview rooms are excellent; avoid non-seaview rooms looking west from the west wing of the hot...

My wife and I spent a week at this hotel as a package through Thomson/First Choice. It was just about out of season and not many kids about! Our arrival was well received by the efficient, well spoken, receptionist. We were allocated room 1073 which was on the same level as the reception. A lovely room and did not smell of smoke as reported on other reviews. The double bed was massive and firm but very comfortable. The room was very modern and also big with a very nice bathroom. The balcony was a little narrow but fine. The only downside was that we paid extra for a sea view and although we could see the sea, it was restricted as there was a flat roof in front. We thought this was a little naughty but to be honest we could have complained but chose not to so our choice. The room was serviced daily with a sheet change once during the week. Toiletries were topped up daily. Clean and well furnished.

The hotel itself was well worthy of its 4 star rating with very well furnished public areas and immaculate. A small negative was that the public areas were quite warm and didnt seem to have air conditioning on. Again a disappointment was the fact that there were extra charges for internet (cable and wi-fi) when just 50 metres away there was free wi-fi available provided in the town square provided by Madeira. We thought this was not good for a quality hotel. The hotel also charges extra for use of the gym and indoor pool (11 Euros per day), again, disappointing for a quality hotel.

The outdoor pool was large and the surroundings well kept. During our stay we managed to get a sunbed but during high season this may have been a problem. Towels are supplied by the hotel but we only found this out after 3 days! Not a problem however as we had our own anyway.

The hotel provides a free minibus shuttle to Funchal. It is also fairly cheap and pleasant to catch one of the regular (every 15 mins) buses to Funchal and elsewhere.

We were staying on an 'all inclusive' basis. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner was on a buffet basis with snacks and ice cream available at any other time. Drinks were availabe which included, tea/coffee etc and also any soft drink, beers, spirits, local liquor and wines. There was a cocktail of the day.

The food was excelent with a good choice and changed daily. Waiters and waitresses were attentive.

Santa Cruz grew on us. A very quiet town/village with not much in the way of shops and a few bars which looked a little drab to us. Lovely views to sea from the promenade and views to the hills from everywhere else. The town has a waterpark within walking distance as well as a small shopping centre (nothing to get excited about!) with a supermarket for your cheap bits and pieces.

Being near the airport was absolutely fine. We could see the edge of the runway (nothing else) from our balcony and in fact it was rather nice to watch the infrequent plaaes coming and going. With the balcony doors shut there was no noise at all.

Room Tip: Beware of Rooms 1072 to 1076 which overlooks a flat roof (although a rather nice roof that looks lik...

Ok - to put to rest the main concern - the planes are really not a hassle - I promise - see photos. The majority of the time they land across the bay in front of the hotel - you really don't take any notice of them & there isn't much noise. On 2 occasions when the wind changed they took off towards the hotel - slightly noisier but still no problem.

The hotel is about 20 minutes from Funchal, & with the excellent road network it's easy to get around - although you do need a head for heights!
Santa Cruz itself is pretty tiny & there's not a lot there - but a couple of nice local bars, pretty squares & the church - & a lovely promenade walk.
If you want to just chill out, which we did, you couldn't ask for a better place - it's a beautiful island. We had the warmest October for 70 years apparently!

Good stuff - hotel is contemporary with smart decor & furnishings, & very very nice & friendly staff - without exception.
The A La Carte restaurant is also good & worth a visit - our All Inc included a meal there - lovely dining room & good food.
The pool is lovely - refreshingly cool - & the whole hotel, inside & out, is kept spotlessly clean.
Our room was on the side of the hotel facing the town, & it was absolutely fine. We could watch local life going by, the sea & the planes - all from our balcony. The room itself was a good size, with a kingsize bed, TV, DVD, air con etc - & the bathroom had a good shower!

There is a courtesy bus into Funchal running several times a day between 0900 & 1715 - (it would be nice if there was an occasional evening one too) - we went into Funchal twice & really liked it & would have liked to go back of an evening - but you do have to be careful of getting ripped off by taxi drivers so we chose not to use them.
The huge cruise ships dock in Funchal pretty much every day, so it's worth getting in there early & going for a wander around the old town - we didn't go up the cable car cos we're cowards! There are cafe's everywhere - all serving excellent coffee, & lots of little shops - you need to poke your head through the doors & look inside - they don't have big shop fronts like ours have.

Not so good stuff - hotel food quality was good, but food variety wasn't so good - room for improvement there.
Unfortunately, there was a large group of Polish guests staying at the same time as us - who drank the hotel dry of several drinks, & who were pretty inconsiderate towards other guests. I do feel the hotel could have done more to kerb their antics before they caused as much disturbance as they did.
On a personal note re the room - the pillows were very soft & squidgy - a choice of firmer pillows would be a nice idea, & the sheets were very starchy - not good for delicate skin.

Bad stuff - The Satsanga Spa. It now charges 11 euros for the day - & this is the only way you can use the indoor pool - expensive I think (it was 3 euros). We had one cloudy morning so we thought we'd spend the day in the Spa - only to be told we were expected to wear a silly little material hat in the pool for health & safety - absolute rubbish! It just means they don't have to clean their pool filters so often! The hat was so small it wouldn't even cover your head - so what is the point! We have used the Satsanga Spa in one of the Brazilian hotels - & never had such a ridiculous requirement - so it is not a company policy. We asked to see the manager - but no-one ever got back to us.
Also - don't expect cheap treatments - you'll pay the same or probably less in a Spa at home.
As it was, the weather was so fab we didn't want to use the Spa again - but it could so easily have been a big issue - disappointing.

Overall, I'd happily visit again. The hotel is very good value for money, is a pleasant environment, & above all has great staff - Fellipa in the bar & Sandra in the restaurant in particular.
A good chilled holiday - just what we wanted.

I recently stayed at Vila Gale for a week with my husband on an all inclusive basis, having made a reservation at the last minute. We were both pleased with the high standards of the hotel, the predominantly attentive staff, and the beautiful Madeiran location. It was a good base from which we could enjoy leisurely strolls or take longer walks; we also found it easy and inexpensive to travel out to other parts of the island without having hired a car.

The positives for us:
Comfortable, attractive and well maintained interior and exterior facilities. Plenty of seating areas and no shortage of sun loungers around the large pool. A good selection of food - granted, some of the food combinations seemed slightly odd - but there was always plenty of food available and something to satisfy most appetites. Helpful waiting staff in the main restaurant who delivered service with a genuine smile. Good standard of soft and alcoholic drinks. Room well maintained and very clean with comfortable bed. We also really liked the piped 'chill out music' that continually played in the background each day. For us it added to our relaxation levels. Although we like children very much, we don't like to holiday in areas full of children. Vila Gale was ideal for us in this respect. Most guests like ourselves were adults without children and this added to our relaxation experience. In fact we were delighted to have socialised with several other couples whose company we totally enjoyed - but without the noise of excitable children running everywhere in the distance!

The negatives for us:
In error our room was not serviced on one day; when it was serviced it was done so late in the day that we had run out of necessary bathroom essentials. The poolside snack bar was under-staffed with queues being the normality. The self serve hot drinks machine there was insufficient for the number of users and constantly ran out of water. The entertainments area bar was mostly well stocked but extremely under staffed. The one bar man serving was quite surly at times but who wouldn't be when under the pressure of serving onging queues of customers? But the oddest all inclusive moment for us had to be the 'dry evenings' that we encountered after the heat of the day... Yes, the hotel ran out of beer, gin, vodka and cola one evening and for most of the following day!!!

Other observation:
Locals in the area seem to be keen dog lovers. Our room on the fourth floor overlooked in the distance two private houses which had three barking dogs between them. They tended to bark in the early morning hours. Beyond the hotel's control of course.

Restaurant attire:
I like to dress for evening dinner, as I noticed did several other guests. For me this adds to the sense of holiday occasion. Both my husband and I were disappointed by the hotel's acceptance at evening meal time of all styles of dress, often including shorts and beachwear. I think dressing for dinner should be encouraged at Vila Gale.

Helpful tips:
If you want a lovely local dining experience with great service and delicious food, visit 'Bom Jesus' in Santa Cruz. It is located adjacent to the beautiful old church. Martin is a wonderful host who looks after all guests with dedicated care and thoughtfulness. And the food is fantastic value.

A trip to Mahchico (past the airport) is a nice day out. The bus stop is within a couple of minutes walk from the hotel and is less than 2 euros fare. About three times the size of Santa Cruz with a clean beach, lovely harbour, lots of history, great shops and decent generally inexpensive restaurants.

Don't worry about the airport being within five minutes of Vila Gale. It didn't cause any disturbance to our stay whatsoever.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the fourth floor if possible because of nearby barking domestic dogs!

Just arrived back from the Viila Gale overall enjoyed a very nice relaxing hollday. THe hotel is very clean and the staff are very helpful and welcoming. The rooms are very good even better than some 5 star hotels that we have stayed in, The main resrurant has good opening times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is nice but limited in choice. One thing I would say is that because the hot food is stored in shallow pot dishes sometimes the food was bit cool I prefer my food piping hot. The pool side bar does do snacks but again choice is limited. The bar is closes at 23.00 which is based on the main clientel which is the more mature couples not a place for young children say between 4 & 16. The hotel is in a very nice location close to the sea with a small walk to the little village. There is a supermarket 5 minuets walk away there are a few bars in the village. The hotel is very close to the airport so you do get planes coming over landing. There is not one every 5 mins not all so we found that this is not a problem. Although it is all inclusive there are no tea making facilities in the rooms, So if you are like me and like a drink before breakfast invest in a travel kettle. We had a partical sea view room which we found was perfect for us. We could sea and hear the sea and as it was on the inside we had a view of the pool area and bar..

.

Room Tip: Try and get a inside room over looking the pool
