Stayed here in mid June with my wife. A really nice hotel, friendly & efficient staff, good breakfast food and excellent facilities. The spa was as good as we've experienced. The location is ideal, 1.2km walk to the Strip and about an 800m walk to Old Town. The local hop on/off 'train' passes right by. Highly recommend.

We holidayed with two other families and had a brilliant time. The animation crew were brilliant, my 6 year old son had such a fantastic time he cried when we left and is desperate to go back! I would recommend this hotel to anyone of any age!

Stayed here for a week, 2nd-9th June. Lovely hotel, very clean with friendly, helpful staff. My partner fell ill on the Sunday and they called out the doctor for us (Dr Folmer of the Orange Medical Centre - a great doctor, very reassuring) which took away some of the worry. We opted for bed and breakfast, for which a great...

We stayed at the Vila Gale Cerro Alagoa in May 2015, arriving on 18th for a week. We had booked a junior suite as we had read that they have roof top terraces....this is not true, ours didn't - however, this did not detract from what was a fantastic week in the Algarve. The hotel was good quality and we...
