The hotel is conveniently placed with lovely views

Posted Aug 23, 2016
Pros: The excellent position, good food and pool facilities.
Cons: The bathrooms would benefit from modernization to include a walk-in shower. The metal balcony furniture is heavy and uncomfortable. The room safe.
Location: Great location on the water line with easy access into the town.
It is an ageing but nice hotel, perfectly placed. The rooms are a little tired but comfortable. The shower in the bath is not really suited to an old or infirm person as it is cramped with quite a high step around a bath screen. The buffet breakfast was excellent but the evening meals were nothing special. The sea is very cold and quite rough but the pool facilities within the hotel are very good.

Excellent hotel, overlooking the beach,

Posted Jul 26, 2016
Pros: The situation, the pools. The decor.There was a relaxed feel with several pleasant sitting areas Inside and out. The staff were very friendly &helpful
Cons: It would be good to have a kettle in the room to make hot drinks and we were surprised to find that there was a charge for use of the room safe.
Location: Lovely, interesting town with lots going on. Pleasant local walks. Good local surf beaches. Also sheltered swimming. safe friendly feel, generally.
Large, high quality hotel, with car park, overlooks beach and coastline and is close to town centre. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful from reception to cleaning staff. The room was spacious and comfortable. There was a mini bar and TV, although no tea/coffee making facilities and we had to pay a daily charge for the use of our room safe. We had a nice balcony overlooking pool area. There were 3 pools, one for small children with an adjacent bar and cafe & plenty of sun beds. There was a good choice of food for breakfast, which was included in room rate and food could be bought from the restaurant, lunchtime and evening, a la carte or buffet, with drinks from the bar throughout the day and evening. There were also plenty of places to explore in the town, with a large selection of bars and restaurants as well as a wide range of shops. Plenty to explore further afield by car. It worked well for us with an extended family including a 3yr old child. There was a nice little play area for young children

Super gaaf hotel met 2 zwembaden en aan het strand

Posted Jul 20, 2016
Pros: Bediening en receptie personeel zijn top! Zwembaden en ligbedden is erg goed geregeld. Ligging t.o.v. strand en centrum is super, 2 minuten lopen.
Location: Locatie zelf is al helemaal prima maar met de surfstranden in de buurt, Marfa en natuurlijk Lissabon gewoon top!
Top voor surfers is het dicht bij gelegen Ribeira d' Ilhas. Veel leuke restaurantjes in het dorp en aan het strand. Personeel hotel Vila Gale is zeer bekwaam en uitermate vriendelijk. Nadelig is afhankelijk van je kamer de permanente Kermis die veel lawaai overlast geeft, dus 's avonds ramen dicht!

Lovely Location

Posted Jul 8, 2016
We loved this hotel and its facilities, lovely location close to the sea and within walking distance to the village. Helpful and friendly staff, the reception helped us book up tours to Lisbon and Sintra with Tuga Trips which we would also recommend to guests they will pick up from the hotel. Would also recommend booking hotel room with balcony and sea view.
