Nice Hotel near to Marina and Beach very nice stay

Posted 17-Jul-2015
Had our first visit to Portugal and was not disapointed it was really lovely there. Hotel was pleasing clean and comfortable a good base to most of the attractions. Food was good not lots of choice but what they put on was good and one thing I have to note was the plates. Hot hot hot plates never had them as warm in any other hotel that we have stayed in. That was a real bonus love warm plates to keep my food warm. Also they provided lovely glasses to drink the wine from of an evening which is also nice I love a nice glass makes the wine taste so much better. Very friendly staff at dinner of an evening really nicely dressed and very helpful indeed. We will certainly return to Portugal we are not golfers but seemed popular with the golfers. Our room was on floor 9 very quiet and a good sized room very clean. Yes good all round no complaints.

Brilliant for location but dated!

Posted 10-Jul-2015
The title sums it up really. Can't fault it for location to the Marina, which has a great supply of nice bars/restaurants. The decor is quite old and sun beds sink in when you sit on them but rooms are ok. Don't stay here if you want a gym. Awful! Just 3 very old bits of rubbish kit and no aircon. Breakfast is nice if you like fresh fruits and a full English.

Vila Gale Marina Hotel - Vilamoura

Posted 04-Jul-2015
Pros: The location is perfect, and all the staff are very nice and willing to help with anything you need.
Cons: The cleaning could be to a better standard.
Location: The location of the Hotel is just across the road from the Marina, and close to all the other amenaties.
We would recommend this hotel to anybody thinking of going to Vilamoura.

Great hotel in a great location

Posted 01-Jul-2015
Excellent facilities in this hotel. Ate on the square behind the marina. It's much more reasonable and beautiful food. Villamoura is a beautiful resort. This was our 3rd stay.

Good location; does what it says on the tin

Posted 29-Jun-2015
Pros: Proximity to the marina; clean and tidy; friendliness of staff.
Cons: The evening 'entertainment' looked quite cringeworthy - dodgy singers, naff karaoke, wine tasting etc. It was like a cruise ship in the mid eighties.
Location: Very good location; a 2 minute walk to the marina so couldn't be better. Plenty of restaurants to choose from.
A decent enough hotel in a really good location overlooking the marina; I would liken it to a 3/4 star in the UK as the offering is what you'd expect from a hotel that tries to appeal to all demographics of life. It works for golfers who are serious about having a base to use all the premier courses; it also works for older couples who just want a nice break and access to good restaurants on the marina. You wouldn't come here for a romantic break as the rooms are fairly basic, although clean and tidy with fresh towels every day. All rooms have a balcony; ours was on the 8th floor so great views across the marina and out to sea.

Great hotel, perfect location

Posted 27-Jun-2015
Stayed here for a short break in June. We were on the top floor and the views of the marina from the higher floors are stunning. The hotel is a short walk to the marina but is far enough away so that you don't hear noise from the bars in the evening. All the hotel staff were friendly and helpful and there was a good selection of food at the breakfast buffet. Tip: if you are wanting the cooked breakfast aim to go down when it gets busier (about 9am), any earlier and the food is luke warm. Was apprehensive about this trip as I had read many reviews about rowdy golfers in the hotel but we must have missed them as all the golfers were very well behaved! Overall this trip exceeded expectation and if I return to vilamoura in the future I would definitely book this hotel again.

excellent location, bedrooms lacking

Posted 25-Jun-2015
Pros: nice pool area and good breakfast
Cons: overhaul of the bedrooms and bathrooms
Location: fantastic location - less than a minute to get onto the marina
fantastic location and good facilities however the bedrooms are dated with woodchip on the walls and the bathrooms were small and disappointing
