Stayed here recently for 6 nights. It’s a massive hotel that sadly was quite empty but that did not stop us enjoying our time here. Most importantly this hotel is very very clean. Absolutely spotless, which of course made us feel safe during these times. The room is large and had great views. I did not like the kitchen area, it’s very strange, I thought it was a cupboard but it’s a small kitchenette but very dated and does not fit in with the rest of the room. Great shower and comfortable bed. No kettle but you can request one so no problems. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. The cafe is really handy and we also had takeaway pizza from the Italian restaurant which was very nice. Pool area is lovely although we didn’t get in as it was freezing! Got some laundry done and very reasonable and was hung up in our room within 48 hours. It would have been good to have received some information when we checked in or to have in the room, about what eating options there were, that you have to pay for the safe (didn’t know that), about the beach towels etc. But apart from that, we would stay at this hotel again and would recommend,

We live in the Algarve and have been staying overnight at hotels locally since Covid 19 instead of traveling further afield . We know Vilamoura well and have stayed at the lovely Gale Marina hotel before. We decided to stay at the Ampalius for one night and thought it was excellent. The room was spacious, quiet and spotless. All the staff were friendly and professional. The breakfast was very good . We will be returning to this hotel in the next few weeks for a repeat. Thank you to all staff who are working very hard at this difficult time.

We had a lovely stay in Vila Galé for 4 nights this October and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Vilamoura. Staff were very friendly and accommodating, and also kept the place very clean(regularly cleaning surfaces)which put us at ease during these times. Lovely sea views and a nice pool / pool bar. (Carlos at the pool was a gentlemen) Food was good with plenty of choice for breakfast and cooked fresh to order. Pool bar food and drinks were also quite good with nice wraps/sandwiches at reasonable prices.
