Vila Gale Cerro Alagoa

Vila Gale Cerro Alagoa is in Albufeira, one of the most popular resorts in the Algarve region of southern Portugal, which is famous for its sandy beaches. The hotel was redecorated in 2018, and features a garden, sun terrace and both outdoor and heated indoor pools. There's a gym and a spa, and you can relax in the sauna or enjoy a massage or a beauty treatment. Alternatively, you might like to join in with aerobics or aqua aerobics, or play a game of table tennis, basketball or squash. The hotel provides entertainment every night, including live music, dancing, quizzes and bingo. The nearest beach is a short walk away. The resort of Albufeira has a modern marina where you can take boat trips out to explore the coastline and see marine wildlife such as dolphins in their natural environment. The old part of town has cobbled streets where you can browse for souvenirs and enjoy some authentic Portuguese food in local restaurants. Cataplana, a fish stew cooked in a clam-shaped pot, is a local speciality, along with desserts made with honey and figs. In the evening, you can enjoy some lively nightlife in the more modern part of town.

The hotel is 750m from the centre of Albufeira and 1.5km from the liveliest area of town, which has plenty of clubs and bars. The wide, sandy Praia do Inatel is 750m away, or you can carry on walking along to Praia dos Pescadores, which has fine sand and large rock formations. There's a lift that will take you up to the top of the cliff for views over the town and bay. If you'd prefer a quieter beach, you can head east out of town to Praia dos Olhos de ¡gua, which is famous for the drinkable fresh water springs that bubble out of rocks on the shore.

The buffet restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and offers local and international dishes including pizza and pasta, plus a kids' buffet. You can also dine in the a la carte restaurant. There's a British-themed pub serving hot and cold snacks, and you can get sandwiches and salads in the cafe bar.

Vila Gale Cerro Alagoa provides both children's entertainment and family-friendly activities. Kids can also have fun in their own outdoor and indoor pool.

Not what I expected

Jun 2022 | 108katiey

We had booked this holiday a few weeks in advance, after a lot of consideration we thought this hotel looked the best on offer. The positives: •The staff are very helpful and accommodating. •The rooms were cleaned spotless every day which was a bonus. •The pool was nice, plenty of beds available. •The location was pretty much ideal, walkable distance(appox 10 mins)to the old town and the beach and a 5 min taxi to the new town. The negatives: •The walls are paper thin, luckily for the first 5 nights we had quiet neighbours, however the last 2 nights unfortunately there was a baby crying constantly for the 2 days and you could hear eveything, we didn’t get much sleep. •You have to pay for the safe daily at an extra rate. •There is no iron in the room. •The breakfast wasn’t that appetising. •The rooms come with 2 single beds pushed together rather than a double bed which isn’t most comfortable. •The rooms were quite dated. We probably wouldn’t stay here again, it did the job but we decided not to spend much time here overall.

Lovely hotel in Albufeira

My wife and I are well into our first week here and are enjoying ourselves very much. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the food is very good. Today is my wife’s birthday and the staff must have picked this up from our passports. She was wished ‘Happy Birthday’ when we arrived for breakfast. And when we returned to our room later in the day there was a bottle of wine and some cake for both of us. Also hotel dressing gowns and slippers. A lovely touch which made our day. Well done to all involved

Robbed by staff at this hotel

Jun 2022 | darrendS9042VV

I sent this massage to the hotel Note: they used there card keys to enter the room the door was not damaged and it is someone that works for the hotel I stayed in your hotel Vila Gale Cerro Alagoa, Albufeira from the 9th of June till the 13th of June. I’ve stayed in the hotel before with no problem but this time my belongings were stolen from my room and the only person in the room at the time was a member of your staff, my personalised AirPods worth €279 and 50 euro cash, they were a gift and I just want a replacement, your diretor manager Tiago Pais was so rude to me and my husband, he would not take any responsibility, he was waving his hands at me been very load and intimidating and it is not something you should do to a guest that has just been robbed. Than he proceed to call the police knowing that nothing would be resolved by doing, so it was unprofessional to make a guests feel like they are doing wrong when we are the victims in this case. I feel like your staff made us feel like we done wrong by leaving my AirPods and €50 in the safety of my own room the feeling of someone robbing you and a member of your staff taking down to us was the most uncomfortable situation i have ever been in and I will never recommend anyone to stay in this hotel again and I would never stay here again for the way you manager spoke to us, you can go back on your cctv at the reception and check all. After this massage the AirPods we’re returned as we checked out of the hotel and on a flight home, they were left on my mother in laws bed as she was out having dinner with her daughter and her husband they were staying an extra night as there flight was leaving a day after ours, imagine the fright she got when she returned to find that the hotel staff that robbed our room had entered her room to return just the AirPods this is a frighting thing to happen and the hotel has nothing to say to us I will put screenshots of what we say to the hotel manager and the hotel response to us
