Our 2nd stay at this delightful hotel.

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel and it was just as enjoyable as our 1st stay. There was some decorating being done whilst we were there but it did not interfere with guests. We requested a kettle in our room and it was duly delivered with 2 cups and a small selection of varieties of tea and a couple of coffee sachets and sugar. We had a mini bar which was perfect for keeping milk chilled. To have an early morning cup of tea was a good start to the day without having to wait for breakfast to start. The reception staff were most helpful, nothing was too much trouble. All in all a pleasant stay in a good hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

Breakfast buffet was good especially with someone preparing crepes, omelettes or fried eggs if you so wished .
1/10 Okay

filthy toilet and shower

On our chwck in we were given key cards for a 3rd floor room, four trips to reception later and after waiting twenty five minutes for a maintenance guy we still weren't in our room, 90 minutes after check in we got access to the room only to find the toilet bowl and shower walls filthy, and the towels were like cardboard. We were going to a new years eve function so we had no chance to relocate hotel. We have stayed many times at this hotel and we were very surprised to find it in such poor repair. Another hotel in tavira is currently being refurbished and we will use it in future.

The best thing about my stay was...

Bar restaurant was ok

Lovely town , shame about the hotel

This is NOT a four star hotel . It may be 3* based on the quality if the accommodation however the staff and service are most definately 2* . Reception staff are unfriendly and unhelpful . Bar/ restaurant staff seem to have no basic ' service ' vocabulary , I don't think I heard any of them speak except to say 'ok'. It was probably a vey nice hotel years ago bug it is tired , poorly maintained and the pool and pool area are dirty . The attempt to entertain children by having characters such as Elvis and Pochahontas wandering about the restaurant at breakfast , looking deeply embarrassed , was a clear indication that this hotel is trying to be something it is not . Would suggest travellers save their money and invest in a good 3* in Tavira rather than an under performing 4*.

The weather

Wonderful Tavira

We booked a double room bed and breakfast for 6 nights through alpha rooms. On arrival we were told that what we had booked and paid for was a twin room with two single beds. I showed the receptionist our booking paperwork which did indeed state a double room but she insisted that the tariff we had paid only entitled us to a double room and that if we wanted a double room we had to pay the hotel direct €196. We paid it and agreed to contact alpha rooms upon our return to the UK which we have done and will wait and see what the outcome is. We could have argued our case for longer but why ruin our holiday over it. The receptionist was very clearly not going to back down. Our double room was comfortable although somewhat basic. The bathroom was tired and the shower pretty poor. Housekeeping was great with towels and toiletries replenished as and when needed.

The best thing about my stay was...

The location was perfect.

Vale Gale Hotel, Tavira, Portugal, May 2014

The hotel is good quality, with friendly and efficient staff. May need some refurbishment but generally good. It was very much a hotel with multi-national guests (a plus in my view). The location is ideal to stroll into the town, or even down the road track to the coastal beach area. We would certainly consider staying here again.

The best thing about my stay was...

Location and general quality of hotel.
6/10 Good

11 October 2013

Stayed in this hotel many times over the years and we have been quite happy with it, location etc, but we feel it is very ready for referbishment, saying that we will still be going back soon.

Hard working staff. Room not cleaned until late afternoon on each day of our stay, we would have liked it to be done in the morning as we are out then. Room and bathroom in need of refurbishment.

The best thing about my stay was...

Good price and location to the town.
