Stayed 10 days with a large party of golfers. Took a Junior Suite on the 3rd floor which was very comfortable with a good view over Lagos and the sea. Breakfast was good if not exceptional.

We were on the first floor over the bar but was not disturbed by any noise from the bar. Hotel staff were very friendly except those on reception. When we...

We have just returned from a week's stay at the Vila Gale, Lagos and we were very happy with the quality and standards in the hotel. We had upgraded to a sea view room and the view was stunning. Not to mention that area of the hotel was so peaceful. The bathrooms were a great size and spotlessly clean. The...

This is my second review of Vila Galé Lagos, the first having been published on Tripadvisor just a few weeks after the hotel opened to the public in April 2009. So, this is like a follow-up on the first review. I've been coming to this hotel once or twice every year since it opened. I've seen some good changes, others...

This hotel is a perfectly fine place to stay close to Lagos. We had no major problems but were let dissatisfied with almost every element. 1. The swimming pool area is very overcrowded (outside school holidays) and was very exposed to wind. 2. The breakfast area was again overcrowded and very noisy 3. Our rooms were directly above the kitchen...
