Hotel Vila Gale Praia details
“Proving that small is beautiful, this 40-room hotel goes all out to impress on the style front.”
With just 40 luxuriously furnished rooms, small is definitely beautiful at this hotel. It’s intimate, private and refined, with attentive staff providing a service that’s discreet and personal.
At its centre, a large swimming pool with a sun terrace and pool bar sits among attractive gardens. And just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel there’s a five kilometre stretch of unspoilt sandy beach. It’s hard to believe it’s only a few kilometres from Albufeira, because it feels more like a million.
The bedrooms, with their pale décor and dark wood furnishings, are elegant in an understated way. And they’ve all got modern facilities such as a large screen TV with DVD player.
Elsewhere, there’s a range of treatments and massages on offer at the hotel’s Satsanga spa, where you’ll find a Jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish bath and fitness room. And there are two tennis courts, with an instructor on hand should you wish.
Breakfasts are a lavish affair, and the hotel's own restaurant, 'Inevitável' is rightly popular. Down on the beach, there are more restaurants, serving local delicacies like sizzling sardines and frango – chicken – piri-piri. For a simpler snack, there's a bar next door and the local supermarket’s just five minutes away.
