A great place
We had a wonderful experience at Vila Gale Collection Praia. The hotel is perfectly located in a quiet area close to Gale beach. The room was very comfortable and perfectly clean. Breakfast had everything you might want. All of the staff was professional and very attentive in every aspect. We highly recommend the spa services offered. All in all an amazing stay. Thanks to Rita for her exceptional efforts.

A great hotel!
Great hotel, perfect location. A few minor grumbles only - the pool was not heated, gym could have been bigger - bit overall, great!

All the hotel staff were so friendly and very helpful, I can’t praise them enough. The little things (like offering to bring breakfast to my table) meant so much to me as mobility can be rubbish some days. We never felt that we had to go out and find things to do, just chilling by the pool or relaxing in the jacuzzi was just what we needed. Rooms were very spacious and very clean. Everyone had respect/consideration for each other which made the holiday even more enjoyable and relaxing. We enjoyed it that much that we have booked again for next year for an even longer stay. I really recommend this lovely hotel

For anyone wanting a relaxed and peaceful holiday - this hotel fits the bill. Situated a minute away from a fabulous beach, the hotel is spotless, the staff are amazing -professional and friendly. The food is delicious - breakfast provides everything you would want and the dinners are amazing - love the Sea Bass - compliments to the chef! There is a beautifully maintained pool area with sunlight all day. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and no question that we will go back again.

Perfect couples getaway
The staff did their best to make us feel at home, including changing out a mattress that was causing back problems. The breakfast and poolside staff were kind and usually attentive. We paid for an upgrade to the pool view and were rewarded with a view of the Atlantic Ocean as well.

A lovely hidden Gem.. highly recommended
My husband and I spent our first new year together at the Vale Praia Gale hotel. It’s a spa hotel set a few steps away from the Gale beach. The area is quiet and relaxing. Everything is at your doorstep, the beach, fantastic restaurants, Albufiera, the seven Valleys hike - whatever your heart desires. As for the hotel itself, well it’s just simply superb. The staff are welcoming, generous and very attentive. The room is super comfortable and spacious with views onto the pool and one can see the ocean from the top floor. The breakfast is fantastic and the dinner menu was also super delicious. There’s a gym and spa with a jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. One can also book a treatment. Tennis courts, a pool table and a garden/pool area. There’s a bar area separate to the dining area. We had a welcome gift waiting in the room as this is our delayed honeymoon (initial trip cancelled in august due to covid).. they even created space for us and included us in their fully booked New Year celebrations.. there’s a culture of leading from the top with the manager and assistant manager being super attentive and caring not just to guests but also to their staff.. the staff were all so amazing and made our special trip even more special. We would definitely come back.. thank you so much.. Obrigada ;-) xo

6/10 Good

This is our 4th year in a row at this hotel. What made us come back every year was mainly the great service we had received and the tranquility of the place. The staff working at the hotel were once again excellent and very friendly throughout. There were, however, some aspects that were somewhat disappointing. Our transfer from the airport, which was booked and confirmed twice through the hotel, did not show up meaning we had to get a local taxi from the airport which was considerably more expensive. For us, and what seemed most guests, the room keys only worked periodically — requiring multiple key changes (sometimes in one day). For a quality hotel, the service had certainly deteriorated from previous years. Orders were at times incorrect and often slow to deliver. Some staff appeared inexperienced. On balance, still a lovely place, great location and the staff are exceptionally friendly. The overall quality, however, was not as strong as previous years.
