    Fabulous

    The breakfast offering in particular was extremely good. The hotel location was also excellent as it was a pleasant walk from, but not in the absolute centre of village/town activities.

    We had booked and paid extra for a suite which it transpired had no balcony at all, whilst all the standard rooms appeared to have - beware of this. The beds were very hard/uncomfortable. The hotel internet had no print facility, which we would consider primative for a 4 star hotel.

    Superb

    The hotel exceeded our expectations. It was spotlessly clean and the staff were very considerate and attentive. Everything was run with 'quiet efficiency'. The room, breakfast and pool area were excellent. I am glad we paid for a sea view, I would not have liked one of the back rooms. Great location for getting to Lisbon for the day, the buses and trains were easy to use and frequent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would use the Vila Gale hotels again.

    Good

    Rooms are big and modern. Location excellent for access to Cascais and beaches. Lunch is reasonable at the hotel. Overall a great stay....

    Having to pay for the security box. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room. (for 4 start I see these as basics). Staff didnt not clean the rooms well each day. Made the bed and changed towels. Only half done. Scum left on bath every day and never cleaned even when I mentioned it. Beds are very very hard. Would not be the most comfortable if that is what you are looking for.

    Superb

    The ideal combination of price and quality, a good hotel in good location, fully corresponds to 4 *

    Near to this hotel is the restaurant, which is very loud music playing

    Quality of the hotel itself but especially its location - ideal for easy access to town, bus station and train station. It was also an ideal location for a wide variety of walks

    The level of internet access - the desktops did not have software which was important for my needs eg Adobe flash player. This meant I had to travel to town frequently

    The Bar, Breakfast & Pool staff had a good understanding of English language & were helpful & friendly.

    My key concern is that I booked a sea-view room & paid extra for the room. However the view I actually got from my balcony was of the roof of the hotel opposite & only could see the sea when I leaned out of the balcony & looked to my left. When I pointed my disappointment out to the front desk they showed little concern & said that no other rooms were available. My room number was 646 & should be classed as "partial sea-view"

    Superb

    The hotel was clean and staff friendly. We had booked two rooms and asked for closeness before arrival. When we arrived the rooms were next to each other and very large! Very good service I think!

    Facilities and room comfort - everything is like brand new. Swimming pool is pleasant - but if you wish a sun bed you have to be there before sun rises (everyone reserve with a towel...).Option to late check-out was nice. Paid a room and get a suite, what was nice because we'd 2 children.

    Summer Saturday nights you should consider an upgrade to sea view since in the back of the hotel you have BeerGarden bar with live music. On the check-out we asked to change the name in the invoice, one hour later they didn't do it and we have to leave without it...

    Helpfull Staff.Excellent room and sea views from large balcony.Good position, on edge of Caiscais. Easy walk into town and shops, backing on to a large Park and gardens. Very good choice at breakfast.

    Fabulous

    Good location within walking distance of town centre, restaurants & beaches. Friendly & welcoming. Reasonably quiet with comfortable rooms. Good value for money overall.

    Swimming pool very small & crowded. Not enough sunbeds or towels. Buffet breakfast average but always very hectic with lots of people pushing past. Design over substance in some instances e.g. few mirrors & inadequate shaving point. Also very dark interiors. Have to pay extra for room safe.

    Fabulous

    We stayed at Villa Gale for 7 nights, no problems with check in and our room was ready, nice Superior Suite, balcony on two sides, furniture could do with an upgrade and maybe think of replacing the bench like seats with free standing armchairs and a couch. Bedroom had a nice view we were on the 4th floor over the pool and out to the beautiful sea. Breakfast was very good, plenty of hot and cold food and you could eat inside or out. Had an issue with late night music, the bar music from the hotel which staff did not turn off and was not handled very well by late night reception staff. An apology would have been welcome but not forcoming.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Rooms were recently renovated, spacious and clean

    Breakfast could be improved; too little guests in a too small space, scrambled eggs were undercooked, coffee tasted like water, and sandwitches were very hard. Location is ok, but still a 15 minute walk to the center, which may become annoying after a couple of times up-and-down.

    Fabulous

    Good hotel well maintained with plenty of areas to relax in. Rooms are of an excellent size and the views over te sea from the upper floors are well worth any extra charges.

    Towels need to be replaced as they are all old and threadbare. The buffett dinner was ok, but often the food was only warm and limited in variety. So we ate out most nights as there is a good selection of restaurants within easy reach. Breakfast was fine with plenty of both hot and cold selections.
