This hotel has it all meticulously clean, great breakfast variety, the sea bass on the evening menu awesome I ate this on each of 4 occasions. My wife's steak was cooked to perfection and the pepper sauce amazing. The chocolate mousse delicious and the petite gateaux also delicious. Had 1 issue but it was solved immediately. Staff in the bar...

I have stayed at many hotels (probably 100's), Vila Gale Praia is my favorite, it is restful and relaxed in lovely grounds with excellent staff. Pick a pool view room and expect to be relaxed from day 1. I have been twice now and will be returning in 2018.

We stayed here for a mini 3-night break. The hotel is cool, calm and relaxing. The staff are first class, nothing is a problem, the outdoor pool area is well spaced out and spotless. The spa facilities are also excellent. The rooms are decent but could be a little brighter - sadly we didn't get one with a pool view....

This hotel is in a great location across from the beach and close to an extensively well stocked grocery store. Rooms are spacious and well appointed, bathroom was a nice size and very clean.

Even before checking in, we were impressed with the friendly, helpful reception staff. Our room overlooking the beautiful pool grounds and and ocean was large, clean, and well-appointed. Great service continued in the restaurant and poolside. We were delighted to have found this hotel and recommend it highly.

Nice quiet hotel for adults only every member of staff was very friendly, and only to willing to help. Little surprises like the wine tasting and the fruit kebabs was a nice touch. We were B&B, but found plenty of nice restaurants within a 20 minute walk. Dinner in the Hotel was also very good.

Would definitely recommend for a relaxing quiet holiday - not if you want music or noise - it is an extremely quiet adults only hotel - staff really friendly and helpful . Food very good and restaurants near by - and quiet beach.

Hotel is lovely in a good area. staff could not be more helpful. Hotel needs a little TLC here and there but all in all a wonderful holiday. Lovely big bed .Bathroom needs a bit of rejigging. Surface space is at a premium if there are two of you. Lighting in corridors could be brighter.
