Hotel is clean on the whole and food is of moderate standard.The hotel feels understaffed and the service you recieve really shows this. Do not have a ground floor room as the hotel is so noisy on an evening and you can hear any movements from above. All in not a bad place and some small improvements in service could...

The outdoor pool area is done really nice. Grounds lovely as well. The time I was there, there were large tour groups staying in the hotel, felt like in a senior citizen home. Breakfast is served in a large and sterile feeling restaurant by mostly uninterested employees, also very loud when the tour groups arrives. Buffet wasn't replenished fast enough...

My first visit to Portugal, believe it or not, and we went with some friends to Lagos, staying at the Vila Gale for a week.

My husband and I are just back from a lovely relaxing week at the Vila Gale. This is a lovely relaxing hotel.

Having stayed a few years ago at the Gale in Estoril, I had some idea of what the standard would be. Perhaps the main feature of this Albufeira hotel is the quality of the staff.

Hotel looks nice from outside, but the dark corridor, the red color wall in room looks horrible. When you try to go into the room at night, you can see nothing. It took me few minutes to find the slot to put the key in, in order to get some light in the room, it's ridiculous dark in the corridor!...
