          Excellent location. Close to the old town / new town and only about 800m from the sea. Very very clean hotel. Very helpful staff. Really nice pool area and always clean. Breakfast selection was very good. Paid for the pool vuew...and you also have a view of the sea as well....so don't pay extra for the sea view!!!!

          Not enough pool loungers for the size of the hotel. Needs to be more information in the reception about local activites / trips etc. The beds are extremely hard and not very comfortable The Air conditioning is not very good and very loud Lack of air conditioning in the lobby and breakfast room...very warm

          The rooms were simple, but clean and comfortable. The airconditioning was lovely, the pool area was kept clean. With the pool views you also got an ocean view, but you were on one of the lower floors so sometimes you got a bit of the noise from the pool and etnertainment. The breakfast buffet was good and we especially liked the champagne which was part of the drink selection in the morning.

          Room Was Comfortable.Air Conditioning worked well.Breakfast was very Good.Pity the Chef doesn't smile at the hot Buffet Buffet.

          Charging to use the Swimming Pool is a bit much Charging for room safe also adds extra hidden costs..Bar very Quiet at night time.

          The hotel staff were all very friendly. All our accomodation was in order when we arrived. The food was lovely and a good variety. We had breakfast every morning and a buffett dinner one evening which was very nice. Our room was cleaned every day and towels changed every day. everything was being kept very clean.

          Could they supply additional umberellas at poolside as there was not enough to facilitate each two sunbeds.

          I have used this hotel for the last ten years when visiting Albufeira for its central location and easy access to new and old town. Travelling with my family l have found the atmosphere quite pleasant and friendly. Service is always good.

          The hotel now charges for the use of their indoor pool which is ashame when they promote the pool in off season months. A change of towels especially when moving from the outdoor to indoor pools is an expected service but this was not allowed on my last trip.

          Friendly staff at reception, despite arriving early they had a room ready for us, small room, but nice with a pool & sea view, maids attended to room daily, good location, 5 - 10 minute stroll to the old town or you could take the little train which stops right outside the hotel, overall we had a very plesent stay at the Vila gale.

          The only thing we did not like about this hotel was the bar which was horrible, the bar staff were grumpy and unhelpful as well.

          Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Good Location, 5 min walk to Fishermans beach. Good pool, lovely bar, nice breakfast. No noise from other rooms. Nice games rooms. Clean. Overall lovely place to stay.

          The music entertainment in the bar was not great, would have been better if they just played CD's etc. Lot of one man bands that weren't too hot! But they did make good cocktails.

          Location and ease of access. Friendly staff. Close to facilities like restaurants. Centrally located for ease of sight seeing. 35 minutes from airport. Easy road access to other parts of the Algarve.

          Bar prices. I could buy a bottle of whisky for the price of one whisky and coke. Being charged €2.50 per day for a safe key. Surely customer security should come free of charge at a 4 star hotel.

          This is classed as a 4 star hotel but the breakfast room was very 1 star. It was too small for the number of guests, very noisy and dark. More use could be made of the adjoining restaurant to make breakfast a pleasant experience. Staff not particularly helpful and room not cleaned very well.
