GREAT HOTEL, GREAT LOCATION, GREAT HOLIDAY!

Posted 15-Aug-2017
Pros: Large rooms, friendly staff, all very clean
Cons: Heat the swimming pool a little please as it was very chilly
Location: The hotel is well located for an easy and pretty walk past the marina and citadel and in to town.
Our holiday in Cascais was perfect! The hotel staff were friendly and efficient and our room was spacious and very clean indeed. The cocktails made by the bar staff were delicious and added greatly to our pre-dinner relax each evening. We were given lots of advice about trips and getting out and about and the hotel staff organised a private mini bus for us to have a fantastic day trip to Sintra which was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Vila Gale and will certainly be back. Thank you to the whole team.

Good family hotel

Posted 19-Jul-2017
Nice hotel.very clean. Would have been better if there was a kettle and iron in the room. They provided an ironing service for a fee but we did not use this and went to a friend's hotel to use their iron instead. Breakfast was good. Pool was clean. People did try to reserve loungers even though this was prohibited. Also would have been nice to have been advised of the tourist tax on arrival rather than being hit with it when checking out

A super hotel in an excellent location

Posted 19-Jul-2017
Pros: We had a Junior suite which was a great size for a family of 4 and everyone slept well due to the black out blinds and overall quietness of the resort
Cons: During peak times the pool area would benefit from a few more sun loungers
Location: The hotel is close to the beach, a beautiful park, the historic quarter and only 10 minute walk to town centre with multitude of shops & restaurants.
We loved staying in the Vila Gale hotel in Cascais; the hotel is situated in the beautiful historic quarter of Cascais, and so, offers stunning sea views with picturesque beach and lighthouse. Excellent choice of breakfast (kids adored crepes & nutella!) and was nice to have option for freshly made eggs every money in addition to a multitude of buffet options. Pool area was very clean with beautiful gardens - our little one also enjoyed the play area and the resident family of peacocks! A great park right beside the hotel was great for exploring with the kids. Staff were very welcoming and accommodating; we had a minor issue on arrival and were delighted with the manner in which it was addressed by the Manager of the hotel. As a result of this we left feeling like a valued guest & hope to be back!

Great ocean view

Posted 25-Jun-2017
The ocean view and deck were fantastic. The breakfast buffet was amazing with lots of food choices. Good location overall. The only downsides were that the bed was quite hard and uncomfortable and some towels were dirty. Overall, a good hotel in a beautiful location.

Overall I was not unhappy with the place but the facilities were dated. Staff were friendly, breakfast buffet was good American food. View was stunning and the pool was very nice.
