This is a 4 star hotel by Portuguese standards, but I think it's closer to 3 star, to do better means doubling the budget. The combination of location, price, facilities and service make it solid value for money in Cascais. I have only given 3 out of 5, but if the weather had been good we would have been happy...

Visited March 14, with my son, having never been to Cascais before. I thought the hotel was closer to the train station but it is about 20mins walk. Fine if you do not have luggage but easier to take a taxi due to cobbled streets and slightly uphill walk. I really liked the location, lovely scenic walk into town. All...

We stayed here on a timeshare exchange and it was great. We had a lovely big room over looking the sea and pool. The room was nicely furnished and we had a small kitchen which was good.

We normally use Gale hotels in Portugal. But the Vila Gale in Cascais was very far from the quality I have come to expect from the group.

Firstly the staff are friendly :) the hotel itself is very dark, along with our suite. Windows were filthy however on complaining they did come and clean them. Beautiful view. Lovely pools. Ideal location close to small beach. Food reasonable. Not a lot else to say.

Great location, friendly staff, room perfect. We stayed for 3 nights. It's only 5-10 mins walk to the centre of things so location. Would be difficult to beat. Wasn't quite warm enough for the pool and it was quite quiet but found every staff member there happy and helpful. Would definitely recommend.
