The location is excellent, near the beach and the Casino and in walking distance from Cascais (a very nice city to visit - You can go by the see until reach Cascais)
This is the 4th Vila Gale hotel that we've been and in this one, the breakfast is the best of the four ... despite being very similar, the food taste better and the staff handled very well with a overcrowded room. (still, no fresh orange juice in a country loaded of oranges :/)
The room was clean and because we had the "sea view room", the view was very pretty :)
It could be a little bit more care with some maintenance (I've posted some pictures about it)
The bar by the swimming pool should have some kind of lounge music because it could "gather" some ppl by the pool despite the weather is not the best.
The wifi is free only in the public areas. I think it could be free for everyone because, for a Portuguese tourist it's easy to get free wifi (PT wifi, Fon Zon, etc) but for a foreign tourist it's not so accessible.
Overall a very nice stay and a hotel to recommend.
