Having the hotel recommended by tripadvisor l booked a week at the Hotel Vila Gale Praia at the beginning of May. On arrival l was warmly welcomed by a member of staff. On inspection of my room, l found it very chic, with a contemporary feel along with soft lighting and balcony. Pool area was very clean and gardens well looked after, pool was very cold. Beach only 400 yards away and 2 miles of soft golden sand, most of which was near deserted. Gale is a very quiet area, ideal for a lazy relaxing holiday, highly recommend hiring a car and exploring surrounding towns and villages. Breakfast is a buffet affair, which is good with a reasonable choice. However lunch or dinner is far from great, to be honest it's a big negative, and very expensive. There are 3 restaurants on the beach which are slightly better, but a little expensive. Apolonia supermarket, a few hundred yards away is excellent for quality and choice. If the hotel is to hold on to the top spot it must improve the food dramatically.
