We have just come back from a great relaxing fortnight in these villas, on arrival I went to the office to collect our key and book in and that was the last we had any contact with the office as everything was spot-on . We had booked a 2 bedroom apt. as our daughter was coming with us for the first week and that turned out to be a godsend due to the fact that all the 1 bedroom apts. are more or less basement like with no outlook whatsoever and not recommended, we had room no. 102 which was all on the level next to the pool. The pool area is the real hub of the place and there are ample beds for everyone, the pool is a good size and it has steps to walk in /out and the maximum depth is only 1.5 metres. There is the pool bar which is run by Isobel who works from 9 .00 until 9.00 at night and never stops she is brilliant and will make you anything you want and all at very reasonable prices.
In the apt. everything you need is there with an electric hob + oven and all you require in a kitchen, the living room area is basic and my only gripe is that the sofas are not at comfy and could do with an upgrade, the TV is a modern one and I had taken a hard-drive with films on to watch later at night and it had the USB connection required, the 2 bedrooms had all you need tons of wardrobe and drawers for everything to keep a woman happy. The beds are on the solid side but that's up to each persons opinion. each bedroom opened out to the veranda with beautiful views to the sea and ADP
We stayed here while passing through the area so we arrived late and left early. The hotel and pool seemed nice during our brief visit. Our room had a small balcony with table and chairs and a great view of the castle. The hairdryer in the room did not work well and there was no free wifi but otherwise the hotel was okay.

"Very pleasant friendly hosptiality in lovely setting"
We had a lovely stay in Sept 2011. Very friendly hospitality from host Oscar. Nothing was too much trouble. Great continental breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh warm bread. Quiet setting within walled premises - a nicely renovated former manor house, with additional modern rooms in separate purpose built buildings in the gardens. Lovely clean presentation, comfortable, balconies overlooking gardens, plenty of parking within the grounds and close to local amenities. Easy access from main road and only five minutes drive from main Algarve motorway which runs to Faro to the East & Atlantic Coast to the West, so easy to get to & from airport. Plenty of character. Very happy to recommend

This was the first holiday my partner and I went on together and found this hotel catered for all our needs. The staff were very friendly. The rooms were an ideal size for the two of us however we requested a double bed but got two twin beds placed together - although we did get a free upgrade and had a spare guest room, and a outdoor patio! - very nice! The pool area was really clean and pleasant. Their clientel is of an older age range, however this again is perfect for those that are looking for a nice quiet get away in which case was perfect for us. We had a bed and breakfast package and the breakfast was amazing. The quality of the food was really nice and catered every possible breakfast type you could ask for. The resort itself was rather quiet we found restaurants are a bit limited to what they offer however nonetheless still pleasing. We did say we would like to return here again but another relaxing holiday. So thumbs up to Villa Gale Nautico.
