We had such a fantastic holiday and time in the Vila Gale hotel in Lagos. It is in a spectacular location overlooking the beautiful sandy beaches and Lagos Town. The hotel is the best I've ever stayed in. The staff are so friendly and courteous. We had breakfast in the dining hall every morning. The experience was amazing., what was laid on with regards to food and drink was varied and would cater for any taste. The quality of the breakfast was excellent, to date, I have not had a better breakfast anywhere. The foyer is majestic, the decor was something to behold, it had an art decor effect, it was plush and luxurious. The ambience of the whole place was warm and captivating. The hotel grounds, swimming pool, grass, shrubbery were immaculately kept, the employees are hard working and dedicated despite the hot weather conditions we experienced. The hotel room was marvellous, it was spotless, very spacious, the beds are so comfortable, and the bathroom facilities plush and modern. The chambermaids provided such a sterling service I tip my hat to them. I would highly recommend this hotel to all interested prospective visitors to Lagos in the Algarve, September is ideal as it's not too hot but sufficiently warm and sunny, so suits us perfectly. The location could not be better, the hotel is simply the best. Its a must. Well done Hotel Vila Lagos.

Shockingly rude and unhelpful staff throughout our visit. Hotel itself has terrific and modern facilities so such a shame that it is so badly managed.

Terrible Service

Pros: The grounds of the hotel are large and pretty, added bonus having tennis courts (although these are not well maintained). Extensive pool area.
Cons: Service standards definitely require improvement
Location: Across the road from Duna Beach (at back of hotel), Marina about 15 mins walk and then you can cross bridge into Lagos town.
Not a kind welcome when entering the hotel, not a smile, a please or a thank you from the reception staff or staff in dining room for breakfast, or the bar which opened at night (from 5pm only). 1 bar open (pool bar only) daytime to accommodate 257 rooms - we didn't use as queues too long, quicker to cross road to petrol station at back of hotel where we could get chilled drinks and takeaway snacks. The only person who was pleasant in this hotel was the maid who cleaned our room. Breakfast was awful so we didn't try dinner in restaurant in the evening.

Beautiful hotel

This hotel is well designed, we had a junior suite which had one double bed in one room and a sofa in a second room. We were given a room facing Lagos, rather than the pool but this worked out great as it's quieter. The breakfast here is excellent with a good selection of food. We ate at the restaurant one night and the main steak we had was not great, the free glass of sparkling wine was nice that came with it. The outdoor pool was amazing and the entertainment they provide everyday at the hotel was great. A perfect place to stay for a family or older people. The bar opens at 7pm but the staff there were terrible, expect to be waiting for drinks, it seems like some staff had no idea what was going on?? Or couldn't understand English. A bottle of wine at the bar is €9.50 but if you buy it at reception it's €3-4 and you can then ask for it to be opened at the bar. We were finally told this by an older member of bar staff on the last night. The indoor pool looked nice for kids, jacuzzi, steam room, I didn't use them as there seemed to be no keys on the provided lockers to leave your valuables?? I wasn't willing to leave a bag just anywhere. This hotel is a good 15 minute walk to the marina to restaurants and boats to the cliffs. A taxi can be between €5.50-€8, depending where you're going. I would stay here again, it was reasonably priced, had great entertainment and a beautiful pool. I just would like to see better staff who make an effort and who are experienced.

Lovely hotel. Great facilities. Excellent location

We just returned from a week at Vila Gale. The hotel has brilliant facilities and the staff are generally pleasant and helpful. The hotel is ideally located close to the beach, the Marina and the old Town. We had a fantastic time and will definitely return. Try to book a room with a sea view.
