Early spring break.

Our third trip to the hotel. Staff are most charming and helpful. Food was good and varied. We chose a la carte on two evenings instead of the buffet and the quality was excellent. Would definitely recommend the hotel for people who do not care for the busy nightlife of Albufeira and who want just peace and quiet. The bird reserve at Salgados is spectacular and worthy of many visits. Our only suggestion to the hotel would be to provide proper double beds with softer mattresses and install shower cubicles in lieu of bath tubs, but otherwise an excellent hotel and great value for money!

The best thing about my stay was...

Playing golf at the Armendoeira, visiting the bird reserve and walking along the magnificent beaches and boardwalks at Salgados.

vila gale atlantico

having just returned from a weeks holiday i feel i should let u know a little about this hotel, firstly it was are first b/b holiday we thought it would be nice to experience a few resturants but there werent any around. we actually spent nearly 20euro per night to get to central albufeira which we didnt expect to have to do, there is simply nothing to do outside the hotel, the hotel is clean but very tired looking, sunloungers and brollys need replacing not sure they will see the summer season out, beds very uncomfortable to. would not give this hotel a 4 star rating. very disapointed. noise was an issue as sounds were traveling through the floors therefore high floor levels are recommended 22 june 2008

Review of 'VILA GALE ATLANTICO'

A wonderful hotel in the quiet Gale area around 8-10km from central Albufeira. Close to beautiful beaches. Gale has everything you need for your holiday including places to eat, a laundromat and supermarket. The staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful. We booked 2 trips through the hotel and because our bus was leaving early, they opened the breakfast room at 6am to accommodate us. Breakfast is buffet style with a wide choice of fruit, cereals, yoghurts, drinks and hot foodstuffs eg bacon, sausages etc. Our room was spacious, ensuite and had a kitchenette with microwave, juicer cutlery etc. The room was clean and serviced daily (new towels and cleaning). There is no iron in the room and if items for ironing must be send to the laundry where a fee applies. The indoor pol and jacuzzi are free but use of the turkish barh and gym is €7.50 a day. Towels are provided for use at the poolside free of charge. The outdoor pool is clean with ample loungers available for this time of year. A snackbar is right beside the pool for snacks, icecream and drinks at a reasonable cost. There is nightly entertainment until 12 midnight in the inside bar. After 12 the hotel is very quiet. Internet access near reception area costs €1 per 10 mins. A taxi to albufeira costs €9-10, and a taxi from the airpot in Faro costs €38. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this hotel and I have no hesitation in recommending it to any traveller.

Review of 'VILA GALE ATLANTICO'

The Vile Gale Atlantico looks as if it was built in the late 1970's and is one of the older properties in this Group of Hotels. The facilities are good having an outside pool, a small gym, sauna and inside pool. However the latter is heavily chlorinated and the hotel insists that bathing caps are worn by all who use this pool.<br /><br />The rooms are quite spacious and were kept clean during our stay. We were self catering and although there was no microwave or oven there was a toaster, which we have found many similar facilities overlook, together with good electric hotplates and clean plates, pots and utensils.<br /><br />The beds were not very comfortable having no spring which was disappointing as the Hotel newsletter was ecstatic on how the beds at a sister hotel had been improved.<br /><br />Food for those who wished it e.g. Breakfast and Dinner was reasonably good value although not of an outstanding quality.<br /><br />The worst point about the Hotel was the lack of sound proofing in the rooms. The floors were of tile and thus every footstep in shoes and worse every moving of furniture in the room above sounded like the ceiling was coming down. We mentioned this to the Front Office Manager who told us that this could be alleviated by laying carpet but this was unhygenic. However, having spent many years living and travelling in the Middle and Far East where tiles are standard in both villas and hotels, some of the noise of moving furniture can be reduced or eliminated by placing felt on the bottom of chairs, tables and beds. We did suggest this but the smile we were greeted with seemed to be more to humour us than show any liklihood of this being carried out.<br /><br />In general, a good hotel with good facilities but try to get a top floor room to stop the noise of those in floors who may be above you. Believe me it is amazing how a child running backwards and forwards across your ceiling or someone taking off and dropping their shoes on the floor around midnight when you are trying to get to sleep can annoy you, let alone when they decide to move the furniture around!

Review of 'VILA GALE ATLANTICO'

for a short break it was good. the rooms were excellent, large and very clean - recommend balcony with sea views, well worth the little extra cost. restaurant had a very varied selection of hot and cold food. staff i think were a little on the cold side - not rude but not very friendly either. all in all a very peasent stay, would go again.

Review of 'VILA GALE ATLANTICO'

Upon arrival we were met by the very friendly hotel staff,taken to our very spacious and clean room over looking the sea.The pool area was very clean, very spaced out with comfortable sunbeds.The hotel restaurant exceeded all our expectations with its quality food and lay out, not to mention its staffing.We had a very short walk to the main beach which included water sports, excellent restaurants and beautiful sandy beaches.The Vila Gale Atlantico offered us everything that we were looking for in a quiet and relaxed family holiday with excellent food and very pleasant and clean surroundings.Thoroughly recommended.
