Have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Vila Gale in Lagos. Hotel was in a really peaceful setting. Pool area was amazing, 3 huge pools and always a sun bed! Facilities for children were good with an enclosed area with a smaller pool and climbing equipment - didn't use the kids club but the team who ran it always came and made a fuss of the children in and around the hotel.The rooms were spacious and clean.The staff were friendly and helpful - don't know many establishments that could deliver a housekeeping team at 2am when your child has been sick to clean and change beds!! Bed linen changed every 3 days and towels daily. No extra charges for room fridge or safe. The only downside for us was the food. We were on a half board basis and we asked if we could swap a dinner for a packed lunch one day and were told we would have to pay extra. The choice was limited and most of it was a poor standard and lukewarm. Meat was mostly drowned in sauce of some description and what wasn't the poor animal shouldn't have lost its life for!! Which other hotels offer liver twice in a week?! The food was very cheap cafeteria based convenience quality with little variation but on the up side a great holiday for not piling on the extra pounds!! Would gladly stay again but only a on a bed and breakfast basis.
