10/10 Exceptional

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.

A great stay
Lovely hotel, adults only. Great location for beach and beach bars. Parking a little difficult when it was busy. The reception staff were outstanding - could not have been more friendly or helpful. Our room had a huge, comfortable bed with a decent bathroom. We had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool. The pool was extremely clean and pleasant with plenty of loungers. The breakfast was OK, hot and cold buffet. All in all, a very enjoyable stay.

Our third year here and we couldn’t have been happier with our stay. The staff are extremely polite and helpful. We felt very safe while we stayed during Covid.

8/10 Very good

I was treated rudely and abruptly by one member of staff in the restaurant after I made a simple query about cutlery. He ignored me and was aloof with me that day and the following day. I bumped into the manager and I told him about it and then I found out that he no longer works at the hotel as appartently I was not the only one who found him to be rude. I have been to this hotel before so the lovely staff are Juao, Ricardo, Sara and Catarina. Relaxing tranquil hotel if you are after that type of a break.

Nice hotel, too many smokers
Really nice hotel close to the beach. Complex has excellent swimming pool area and the best rooms have views looking over this area. Unfortunately the hotel seems to have become a mecca for the smoking set as most of the guests were smokers. This made it rather difficult sitting out on our deck at night, as all our neighbours up, down and sideways were smoking on their decks. To be fair, there’s a lot of smokers in Spain & Portugal.
