The hotel is very clean and accommodating, with nice little touches for couples like a real rose in the bathroom and towelling bathrobes. Pool side...

If you're wanting a quiet relaxing break in excellent surroundings in a lovely hotel with fist class staff you need look no further. Always wary about returning to a hotel but this one didn't disappoint still as good as our previous visit a few years ago.

We'll appointed hotel in central location with excellent staff and good food. Small intimate relaxing hotel, ideally suited for couples as has a no children policy. Rooms with pool view are extra and pick up the afternoon sun for relaxing on the veranda.

I have just returned from a very enjoyable holiday in Portugal and stayed at Hotel Vila Gale for the first time. The hotel was lovely. The service was great. The food was delicious. The beds were comfortable and the staff couldn't do enough for you. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely go back.
