Had another fabulous 9 day R&R at the beautiful Gale Praia. Staff excellent especially Filipe and Catarina whom we have come to know over the years. Spotless and great breakfast choice. Get a car and visit the many great local bars, beach bars and restaurants, São Domingo's, Jompra, Solar Das Oliveras O,Girasol, and Arcadia Bar and the famous Cabanitas which never disappoint

Over the years we have stayed many times and always enjoyed the ambience.
The staff selection process at this small 40 bedroom hotel is bang on as all the staff are excellent.
Hotel guests now have free access to the Spa and many treatments were reduced so they were good value for money.
The swimming pool needs to heated and the black sunbeds need replacing.
Free wifi needs to be provided in bedrooms only and not in the public areas.
We never expect the days of the turndown service with chocolates, the slippers, entertainment twice a week, and the Manager's welcome drinks party to return but the hotel thoroughly deserves the high ratings that it consistently receives.
You pay a premium to stay in the Gale' area - the three beach restaurants are all similarly priced and a little more expensive than the norm - in fact the Hotel's restaurant is now very competitively priced and the food very good.

Room Tip: It's worth booking a pool view room although all the rooms are furnished similarly.

I spent a week at the hotel and had the most wonderful time, could not fault it at all. The staff were all fantastic, helpful, polite and very kind. I had recently had an accident and was using crutches to get around, and nothing was too much trouble. The bedroom and bathroom were beautiful, really comfortable and spacious, and spotlessly clean. The pool was lovely, with plenty of sunbeds, and spacious gardens surrounding it. I made use of the spa facilities, having a healing facial treatment and reflexology, which were just fabulous....the reflexology in particular, and the ladies there were excellent, I felt totally pampered. The Jacuzzi was good too, spacious and in a lovely setting. The food was all beautifully presented, the breakfast buffet was amazing! and the quality was excellent. All in all I cant wait to go back asap!

Room Tip: My room was on floor 1, which was brilliant for my reduced mobility as the restaurant, bar, spa and pool were all on that level, with the reception and entrance up one floor. It was very quiet and peaceful despite being near the main facilities.

Excellent hotel and facilities. Calm serene clean. Staff very helpful and friendly especially Katarina in the restaurant and gentlemen covering the reception desk. Spa facilities were excellent inc. The jacuzzi (big and spacious). Pool clean but not heated. Was nice to swim in however. Restaurant and room service excellent. I am a fussy customer but i found everyrhing to be on point other then the Wifi connection which kept signing out. Overall would go again. Ideal getaway. 7 minutes from old town in a taxi costs €12 would recomment Meet Bar (say hello to Frankie Ricardo and Ricardo really lovely bar men) go to Bank Bar has great dancers... overall had an amazing holiday would highly recommend.

We spent a week at this hotel on half board, and were not disappointed. It is peaceful, spotlessly clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. If you are after a lively atmosphere this hotel would not be for you.
Being on half board we did find the choice of starters and desserts limited, and learnt that the menu is only changed on a monthly basis - not a problem if you're on B & B and only eat at the hotel a couple of times in a week. That said we found most of what we did eat to be excellent. We had a room with pool view on the 3rd floor, available at a supplement, and would say it's worth paying the extra. Rooms at the back overlook a residential area.
In response to a previous reviewer's comments regarding a lack of pool cleaning, we did see staff cleaning/adding chemicals early in the morning. This is also the only hotel I have ever stayed at where, no matter what the time of day (and the hotel was full at the time of our stay) there were always sunbeds available. We will definitely return!

Room Tip: Pay extra for a room with a view
