Wonderful hotel. Clean & tidy everywhere. Special mention goes to the waiting staff in the restaurant, especially Rui & Emilia for making our baby girl excited every morning. Can't wait to return to Vila Gale. Our only niggle was the evening buffet meal that is basically a free for all. Breakfast however is brilliant.

Between 6 to 13 September, I traveled to Lagos and I was staying in Hotel Vila Gale - a great hotel in terms of location (oceanfront 5 min from Meia Praia), layout and services with professional staff. The hotel offers the option of a great pool of generous dimensions. My trip was organised through a local tour-operator Domitur. Also very...

This is a great, very modern hotel. It has a large pool area with lots of sun beds - we never had trouble getting a lounger even in high season. The breakfast was excellent.

I stay at this Hotel in last June. It's a very nive Hotel, with a nice swiming pool. The rooms are according with the level we expect. It's very near to a nice beach and we can choose if we prefer the swiming pool or the beach.
