My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at at Vila Gale Praia. The property, especially the pool, is beautiful. The location is outstanding - less than 1 block to the beach. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The breakfast buffet was excellent as well. I highly recommend.

All aspects are truly excellent - rooms, beds, cleanliness, food, staff, pool, quiet, proximity to beach etc. First of all, if you are looking for a really nice hotel to "crash out" in a quiet environment with very good food, staff who are very friendly...

“I had a small problem with my room. When I reported it, the hotel upgraded me to another room. The first room had been facing the back of the hotel but my upgrade faced the pool and garden. Whilst both were pleasant in their own way, I would certainly pay extra for the garden and pool view in future.”
