    Great place for a couple/family stay

    Everything was great, the staff was very friendly and polite, the food was great and the rooms really clean and comfortable. Our only 2 annoyances were: - the fact that double rooms were most sold with individual beds instead of a double bed (not sure if it was due to limited availability at the time of booking); - when we tried to use the indoor pool, they told us we had to book in advance and pay 4€ for a swim cap, for those reasons we chose the beach instead and we don't regret it, however, it would've been nice if we could go for a swim at the end of the day without having to plan it in advance On the last day, we had an invitation in our room for a free drink offered by the hotel managers at the bar in exchange for our feedback, but as we had a wedding on that same day, we couldn't be there, but we still appreciated the gesture.

    Week’s stay in Vila Gale Tavira

    Perfect hotel in central position in Tavira. Staff very helpful including telling us where to go for Covid return home tests! Room spotless each day poolside area also very clean. Breakfast bountiful and guests are politely asked to book a time slot so dining room is not too full. Only criticism is that the room is crying out for more drawers as we had to keep some clothes in our cases.

    Amazing setting, hotel and staff!

    My girlfriend and I spent one week at Albacora and had the most amazing time. It's situated in a most beautiful setting, with lovely views. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The restaurant is amazing - even in the current conditions with the covid outbreak, the staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone was safe and comfortable without losing any of the quality expected from a Vila Galé hotel. There is also a boat that takes the guests directly from the hotel to the Tavira island. This made our stay so much more enjoyable, not to have to use the car at all. All in all we had one of the most wonderful holidays ever!

    Misleading

    Arrived earlier than the 2pm check in and the lovely receptionist checked me in and said my room was ready which was a lovely surprise.... until I got to my allocated room which overlooked the road and filling station.... not the pool view as stated in the room description on Hotels.com. Went back to reception to explain the mix up and was informed I need to pay a supplement €42 for the pool view room! Not very happy as I had already booked and paid for this so be aware of hidden charges!! Rooms are adequate but very poor lighting and can hear everything from the rooms next door which isn’t very pleasant! Breakfast was good, plenty of choice but would’ve expected to have a choice of coffee. Staff in the restaurant seemed fed up and didn’t interact with guests. Spa was lovely, pool a good temperature and plenty of loungers and towels Location is great, easy and safe to walk everywhere. Wasn’t any entertainment during my stay not even music in the bar so be prepared to find your own.
