8/10 Very Good

Pool is the highlight
Really great pool area which is the highlight of this hotel. Breakfast is ok, the fresh fruit selection is quite limited. Omelettes/pancakes on offer but couldn’t find the chef to make them. Would be nice if there was a clear eating area outside for breakfast. Room was clean and tidy, having to pay each day for new coffee pods really sets the wrong tone for a 4* hotel, quite odd and never experienced that before. Gym was small but had good basic equipment. Very close to the beach.

8/10 Very Good

Vila Gale is a small hotel in a nice location about a 3 min walk from a lovely beach. I liked that the hotel is not in a busy town but had a more relaxed vibe. Rooms were nice and there is a pillow menu but you need to ask. Breakfast had many options and everything was fresh. The pool area is beautiful and lunch by the pool was great. It is an easy drive or walk to several restaurants and not too far from Albuferia. I can definitely recommend this hotel.

We really enjoyed the fact that the hotel only has 42 rooms. Also, it is outside of the city but so close to the beach. The staff were all amazing and so helpful. Breakfast was included and it had a huge choice of options to choose from. Our favourite hotel during our Portugal trip.

A great place
We had a wonderful experience at Vila Gale Collection Praia. The hotel is perfectly located in a quiet area close to Gale beach. The room was very comfortable and perfectly clean. Breakfast had everything you might want. All of the staff was professional and very attentive in every aspect. We highly recommend the spa services offered. All in all an amazing stay. Thanks to Rita for her exceptional efforts.
