Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Great location 2 mins from Vilamoura beach. We had a street view room on a high floor and the view was amazing; to the right we could see the marina and to the left the beach and the sea. Be warned - we were charged 7.50€ for taking 2 very small bottles of water from the fridge in our room. The receptionist called it a ‘minibar’ but there were only 4 small bottles of water in it, no alcohol or snacks as usually found in an hotel minibar and no price list. We didn’t mind paying for what we had - but 7.50€???

The positives: The location was perfect. A couple of minutes walk to the marina where there are an abundance of lovely bars & restaurants. The beach was less than a minutes walk away. It was lovely and clean and the sunbeds on the beach where 18 euros for two until 2pm. There was a beach bar close by and a fancy beach club. The transfer from the airport to the hotel was very efficient. We used Sunline Transfers. The hotel restaurant was really lovely with a good choice for breakfast. We only had evening meal on the first night because there are so many amazing restaurants close by. I would recommend the Chinese Zu Yi, Rare steakhouse, Don Toro steakhouse and San Rafael (opposite the hotel). To be honest every place we ate at was really good. The negatives: The queues at passport control were very busy due to PCR results also being checked but it still seemed to take much longer than it really needed to. was shocked to find that we didn’t have a balcony in our room. I’ve never seen that abroad before. There were no instructions on how to use the jacuzzi or the water jets in the indoor pool area. The jacuzzi didn’t actually work despite the help of the member of staff. There was no signage to show you how to find the sauna and Turkish bath. We literally found them by chance looking around by the gym area. You need to have swim caps for the pool.

The staff at Vila Gale were incredible and my stay was very enjoyable. I booked a Junior Suite Ocean View, but upon arrival the room I was provided did not have a table / desk suitable as a work space. The staff and management found me another room immediately (which was in fact an upgrade). I will be back again next trip to the Algarve!

Excellent location, very close to the beach and to the marina and many restaurants. Large varanda. Comfortable bed. Nice 20 minute walk to Quarteira on the promenade. Because of the Covid pandemic, the use of masks is a must inside the hotel, taxis, shops and supermarkets. With all the changes, the breakfast was better than what we expected, giving the circumstances.

We have been staying at the Vila Gale for a week in September for many years. Despite covid we still had a fabulous time. The hotel has done all they can to battle through this time, masks worn everywhere when not eating & drinking. Room was spotless every day. Bit of queuing at breakfast but got better as the week progressed.
