Very nice room clean and plentiful toiletries towel change every day view excelent breakfast was very good plenty off choice cooked breafast to continentail the only down side was the niose most days because some rooms where getting a facelift so you could hear drilling x but we where out most off the time x you could hear nightclub music a bit at night from the casino but it wasnt too bad x will return hopefully soon

As a group of 4 lads on an end-of-Summer golf-trip, the hotel was perfect for what we needed... Location was very central - close to the marina for coffee in the morning and near enough to restaurants and bars in the evening for a few brews after getting back from the course. We took a duplex apartment on one of the top floors with panoramic views along the coastline which worked out very well price-wise and was fine with 4 sharing... Food (breakfast only for us) was no great shakes but did the job and the service was always friendly and speedy.

We all enjoyed this holiday very much , and intend on going back again, the hotel had no faults, food was fine , lots of golfers, but all friendly and respectful. The hotel is literally on the beach , and the marina is a five minute stroll down the road, beautiful boats , restaurants, shops etc , all round five stars xx

Have been here for last six years and have to say it is hard to beat for the money.the staff are so friendly and helpful ,the breakfast is fantastic with so much choice and facilities are great.close to marina,casino,bars and shops with bus stop right out side.

Friendly & helpful staff. Fantastic food - wide choice breakfast with Prosecco. Handy for Maresia Beach Bar with delicious cocktails , on top of perfect weather . Next to . We will return one day !

I have stayed at this hotel previously and I experienced the usual high standard of service, cleanliness and very helpful staff. I was accompanied by new guests to the hotel on this visit and was pleased that they also really liked the hotel and plan to return based on my introduction. We used the food/drinks at the pool bar regularly this visit and was very pleased to find that the prices were very reasonable and food great. I booked transfers via the hotel team - Tee Times and the service was excellent, I appreciated their help as I have been badly let down before by Faro Airport Private Transfers. I regularly recommend this hotel and have had great feedback when they have stayed at Vila Gale Ampalius.

Stayed 4 nights. Room was large with a large balcony and great sea view. We had booked a superior twin with sea view. Our room was over on the left hand side of the hotel but still had a great view. If you had a room on the right hand side you would have had a sea view and a marina view. Bathroom was not updated but I think they have started to update some. It was clean and functional. Bed was king size and comfortable. Air con brilliant and fridge in a small area as you come into the room. Charge for the safe but wifi free. Lots of sunbeds and great wee pool bar. Didn't use the indoor pool as the weather was to good to stay ineide. Breakfast was great with a large variety and the coffee wasn't to bad. Lots of great restaurants close by and away from the marina. The marina was great to walk around have a meal or a drink and people watch. Hope to return. Also yellow fish a great transfer service. Very efficient. Thankyou vila gale ampalius for a great break in the October sun.

Woo factor when we arrived and the welcome was excellent. We paid extra for a sea view that was worth every penny. Everyday our room was cleaned, including balcony - clean towels etc daily. Great standards. The breakfast was always fresh and plentiful and the floor staff very attentive. Very clean hotel, very attentive staff, great standards in a perfect location. We will be back!

Vila Gale is situated near to the marina without being too close to noise. The staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly throughout our stay. All aspects of the hotel is spacious, meticulously clean and comfortable, including beds and bedroom. The outside pool, though a little cool is lovely as is the seating area surrounding it. The bar is large but slightly impersonal and more set up for larger groups/ family’s rather than a place for a quiet drink. Breakfast is included in your stay and is good with a large variety of foods to choose from, the dinning area however is a little tired but comfortable. The spa is well worth a visit as is the in door pool area. We were slightly disappointed to be charged €3 each for our water that was routinely left in the room each day. In all we had a very pleasant stay.

we stayed in the vila gale ampalius in late october 2017. we had a standard rooom which was grand for our requirements as we were out all day. the room was great if a little on the small side. clean with a shower over the bath that we are not big fans of. we much prefer a walk in shower for safety and comfort. the room was cleaned well every day. reception were friendy and the food at breakfast was varied and of good quality. the hotel is i a great location in the heart of villamoura. if you want to pay extra you can have a superior room with balcony. but as the hotel is on the sea front it was not necessary for us. the pool areas are very comfortable. we did not eat in the hotel in the evening so cannot comment there. but overall a really good central hotel in villa moura
