I got back from this hotel on 15th August and must say I had a very pleasant stay with my 12 year old. It is a very quiet resort and very pretty town with lovely beaches you can get to via water taxi. I would say the hotel is a little tired in places and could do with a refurb...

The Vila Gale is centrally located in the coastal town of Tavira and within walking distance of the majority of local sights. We were able to park our rental car in their basement parking garage for a nominal fee which was excellent considering it...

Great hotel, atmosphere a bit similar to the town - classy, a bit retro, wide spaces - room as well as hallway and pool area, lovely decor - objects laying around, color schema ... really made the Tavira trip very pleasant.

Just back from ten days at this hotel. The rooms are clean, comfortable with good storage. View not good but not helped by location of the hotel so close to everything.
