My husband and I stayed at this hotel earlier this year on an all inclusive basis. The hotel is fab if you are a golfer, but not so good if you are not - as it gets taken over by them. The hotel is in a good location with the marina within walking distance and so is the beach. The...

Represents poor vfm in my opinion. Rooms were basic and in need of a facelift. Smooth, ceramic tiles in bathroom floor were plain dangerous. The safe box that's in the room was chargeable, most hotels don't charge nowadays. Breakfast was a joke as you had to queue for a solitary coffee (or hot water for tea) machine, which made it...

An excellent hotel, we stayed on a b&b basis and yes we were part of a golfing party. An excellent location to explore Vilamoura, near the bars and restaurants. I would definately stay here again. The food was good, rooms were very clean and well decorated.

This is the 3rd time I have stayed in the Vila Gale Marina and whilst we had a huge room and balcony I do feel the room and bathroom could do with a refurb. Breakfast was the usual good quality and hotel is spotlessly clean. There are a lot of golfers at this hotel and some are quite noisy especially...

“There is a small wall in the bedroom that prevents it being too light in the room if you put the bathroom light on at night. I turned out of the bathroom and walked into it banging my nose. Just be aware.”
