Clean and tidy hotel with spacious rooms and a great view over the harbour from the large balconies. Comfortable beds, maid service every day, and a very good buffet breakfast make this hotel an excellent choice when staying in Vilamoura. We stayed late November 2016 and the hotel was nice and quiet (which we prefer).

Vila Gale group has a certain standard and the Marina lives up to it. All staff at reception are helpful and efficient. Special thanks to Nelia who gave great directions to Falesia beach which was stunning. Spacious rooms have balconies and great views and are cleaned everyday. A la carte in restaurant is delicious and service is a high standard.... More

Couple of good cafes and great pizza... More

Rooms were very spacious, bathroom very crampt. Room service didnt change the dirty glasses and re-arranged the sheet as opposed to changing. Hotel had good facilities.... More

Wonderful location and within a minutes walk of the Marina. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. I have to say we were disappointed with the behavior of some of the other guests. One large group of golfers unfortunately let themselves down with load shouting day and night and had a total lack of respect for other guests and... More
