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.

Excellent hotel with brilliant staff who were coping under difficult Covid conditions. The room was cleaned every day to a very high standard and was bright and spacious. Location is ideal for the beach and the marina. Walking back felt very safe. Would highly recommend

I recently visited this hotel for a week. Arrivals was very busy when I arrived and I had to wait until after 5pm for my room which was not great. If you are booking this hotel defiantly go for a room to the front overlooking the pool/beach. They are much nicer to the back rooms. My room was lovely and very clean. The cleaners were very good. I used the gym everyday and I cannot speak enough about how nice the gym receptionist Tania was. This is also where you changed your towels daily. Tania was great and so nice unlike the rest of the hotel staff, especially the pool staff who were really not nice. Breakfast was good and pools are great and very clean. Thought it was a bit odd that they did crisps and the bar inside and not outside.
Overall a good hotel and I have stayed in a few around the area, this probably the best. their staff let them down a bit to be honest.
