Excellent value for money, perfect location

Posted Apr 17, 2017
Immaculate hotel, good food, excellent value, 2 mins from beach and exceptional service. Would thoroughly recommend to couples looking for a quiet trip away. Plenty to do and only 10 mins taxi to the Old Town.

Nice Hotel with Great Amenities

A get away holiday before the Summer rush and a very nice place to escape to. Brilliant amenities, facilities and staff. Very helpful and great help in booking day trips and outings. A small walk to the beach, with great restaurants overlooking the beach. A fantastic location and recommended.

Lovely quiet hotel very close to the beach

Posted Apr 6, 2017
Pros: Everything
Cons: My advice, do not try and find something to fix if it isn't broken and in this hotel, nothing is broken.
Location: The beach is a 5 minute walk, a lovely restaurant on the front serving stunning food. Albefuira old town marine is 7km away and a nice walk.
The best hotel I have stayed in for all the above headings. Bearing in mind a 4* hotel, I stayed in the Waldorf in London last year and the Villa Gale Praia knocked spots off of everything, and most noticeable the helpfulness and politeness of all the staff from the manager to those lovely ladies who cleaned our room. I can't see how you can improve, a truly lovely, relaxing flop holiday and will be returning next year we hope.

Peaceful and relaxing - consistently excellent

Posted Oct 30, 2016
Location: 200 yards to the beach - nuff said ;0)
All staff wonderful - resturant manager Phillipe outstanding - language skills perfect and while we visited he was always ready to exceed expectation - and when the hotel was almost flooded - over one metre of water against windows in Spa - his quick thinking avoided a disaster. All staff from cleaning staff to the top we all very friendly and helpful - top marks The hotel itself was clean facilities were excellent and it met our every need - as an Adult only hotel it was so peaceful and so relaxing - top marks

An all round lovely lovely experience!

Posted Oct 23, 2016
Pros: Everything!
Location: Quiet area. Beautiful beach over the road. 3 bar/restaurants by the beach, less than 5 minutes walk. Good supermarket short walk away too.
We had a 2 night stay, arriving on a Sunday morning and leaving on the Tuesday afternoon. We were able to use the hotel facilities for the entire time, leaving our bags at reception. On arrival, we were given a cool drink and cold face towel and facilities were explained by the receptionist. We had our room upgraded to one with a pool view, which was a nice surprise. We were given a voucher for a free bottle of wine if we had 2 main meals in the restaurant (we used this and had a top notch 3 course meal), a voucher for a 2nd drink half price (which we used on a cocktail each) and a voucher for a reduction on a massage, which we didn't use in the end. The hotel was clean, modern and had a luxurious feel. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was quiet and felt uncrowded, but busy enough to have a nice atmosphere in the restaurant and bar. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and very good, with an amazing amount of choice, including a few more unusual options. We used the spa facilities, gym, yoga room, pool, and had lunch outside on our last day. There were smart toilets by reception and toilets and showers by the spa/gym area we could use when we didn't have a room. The whole experience was thoroughly relaxing and felt like a real treat!

Had a wonderful holiday the hotel was brilliant

Posted Oct 23, 2016
Pros: The adults only part. I love kids but not when I'm on holiday
Cons: Breakfast becomes boring after a week it lacks variety although there is plenty of choice. It's just that it's the same every day
Location: The beach is beautiful no unspoilt and the sunsets amazing

Quiet and relaxing, fantastic location

Posted Oct 23, 2016
Location: Beach just two minutes walk away - a geologist's dream!
Beds very comfortable but some things not replaced when room serviced (bath gel etc). Some equipment in gym didn't work (cycling machine). We were told that as we had an early start for flight home that we would get a snack box to take with us as we would be too early for breakfast but when we checked out no snack boxes has been prepared. However, the cup of tea and cool lemony towel offered on arrival was very welcome indeed
