Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Was in a party of 12 golfers who played 3 local courses, all within easy reach. Accommodation was fine with large rooms and balcony, food was OK with plenty of variety. Used the Spa twice for massages as they were on offer. Large pool is excellent with plenty of sunbeds. Downside is the pool bar is not open all day...

Myself and my partner spent a week here all inclusive from 17th-24th May. Arriving to the hotel it looks huge and luxurious with this feeling continuing into reception. Reception is massive with lots of soft seating areas to relax. On arrival the receptionist was lovely. Very friendly and efficient and immediately we were made feel special as our room was...

Visited with 3 friends for a golf orientated holiday and we all thoroughly this hotel. Great swimming pool to relax next too. Nice bar with questionable evening entertainment (Enjoyed watching the local dancing, didn't enjoy loud karaoke.) Breakfast catered for most in a buffet style. Staff very friendly, Bed comfortable and rooms clean. One of our rooms smelt of stale...

We visited Vila Gale Hotel in May and it was very enjoyable. All our requests were looked after by a friendly and helpful staff. Excellent facilities and right beside a beautiful beach. 20mins walk to Lagos.

First of all the sound proofing is an issue. There are over 15 reviews that state sounds proofing is non existent. Let me reiterate this. When this is pointed out as an issue perhaps the cleaners should be briefed how to close a door or move furniture. I heard this loud noise for at least 2 hours a day. In...

We stayed at Vila Gale 10th April for a week and we loved our holiday and would definitely go back. The Hotel is very comfortable and relaxing, the staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. The pool area is great plenty of space and the pool itself is outstanding. The food quality is very good, lots of choice and replenish quickly....

This is quite a good hotel, looked after and clean. The service around the pool bar and gym is a little slow. The inside pool water looked like it needed a better filter, it was quite murky. Outside pool clean and crisp, nice area to sit and relax. Rooms good quality and cleaned regularly. The biggest let down was the...

Just returned from a most enjoyable 5 night stay in this hotel. My room on 3rd floor was large, clean and had a wonderful sea view. Buffet breakfast was fine. Staff throughout the hotel were exceptionally friendly. Night entertainment in the bar was far too loud making conversation impossible. A large number of seagulls congregated every day in the large...

This is a lovely well-kept hotel with nice staff and customer service overall. However, it is slightly isolated with no shops (convenience store, restaurants, cafes) nearby. It is however, very close (5 minute walk) to the Praia Meia beach which is primarily why we chose it. BEACH - MARINA - LAGOS To get to the beach you have to cross...

Just back from an Easter break with family - 2 kids aged 14 & 10. Stayed in a Junior suite overlooking kids play area. I agree with the reviews that the clientele is older - which suited us lovely as I hate a hotel overrun with unruly children. Food lovely, limited childrens options but excellent quality. Good variation and choice....
