Stayed at the vila gale nautico for 2 weeks from the 21st june, we got there just before lunch time and our room wasn't quite ready so our luggage was kept safe for us and we was shown down to the pool area where we could grab something to eat from the snack bar. The snack bar was great and quite often we had lunch in there instead of the main restaurant, not loads of choice but enough all cooked to order so always nice quality ( although my 7 year old said why no hot dogs ) the main restaurant was okay very clean friendly staff sometimes a bit too keen to clear ur plate though, I didn't feel that there was much choice vegetable soup for 14 nights they had nuggets and other bits near the salad bar in dishes not kept warm so always cold pasta rice with nothing to go with it the desserts were always some form of mouse which were nice if ur 2 or have lost all ur teeth wuold of liked there to be more effort put into this they did have little individual puddings set up witch looked lovely but again mouse, breakfast was disappointing mini cocktail sausages in some sort of water maybe brine not what I expected for breakfast, the kids had there own section which seemed to be cold all the time and always had the same things on pizza rice pasta chips broccoli mouse veg soup, we ate out a few times just because we were so bored of pork loin every night we went to a Chinese round the corner called happy talk was beautiful, on the subject of food we visited the a la cart one night was nice but booked a table for 8 didnt get our starter till 845 the kids were starving wouldnt mind but we chose soup and it was vegetable again could of gone round the corner and got it straight away seen as they had it for the full 2 weeks.
The hotel is very clean and all the staff were lovely very helpful, but as a family of 4 2 children I felf the night time entertainment was a big let fown for us we went to majorca last year and the entertainment was fantastic, most of the time here is was some old guy playing a keyboard they had a reptile show on a Wednesday and a parrot show on a Saturday witch the kids loved especially my son how got to get a snake out of the box during the show they had a mini disco on a tuesday and thursday ( thomas cook) which was half hour long just before we left they had to move it into the kids club because some Portuguese lady complained that it was in English when the Portuguese have there disco on the other nights,
The kids club staff were amazing my kids loved them especially my daughter who daid she would never go to a kids club in her life, she has now said wherever we go next year must have a kids club, so a big thankyou to the girls for making francescas holiday do special.
This is the first hotel that I have ever been to that u can get sunbeds st any time of the day never had to reserve them which was great,
I wouldnt return to this hotel with my family as the entertainment let it down my holidays are all about the kids and on a night time my kids had to make there own entertainment not good.
