Vila Gale Lagos
Vila GalÈ Lagos is a short stroll from the sandy Meia Praia Beach, regarded as one of the finest beaches in Portugal's Algarve region. The hotel features a garden and sun terrace, as well as an outdoor pool, a kids' pool and a heated indoor pool. There's a spa, a sauna and a Turkish bath. You can also book a massage and a range of beauty and wellness treatments. If you're feeling energetic, you could join in with sports and activities ranging from aerobics and aqua aerobics to football, table tennis and beach volleyball. There's daily entertainment, including shows, music and DJs. The hotel has three restaurants and two bars. You can find plenty of places to eat and drink along the promenade close to the wide beach. Meia Praia is quietest at the eastern end, with more facilities at the western end, closer to Lagos marina. The sea is generally shallow and fairly calm, and you can still sometimes see local fishermen bringing in their catch. For a change of beach scenery, Praia da Dona Ana is just outside Lagos, and has dramatic cliffs and rock formations. It's a popular place for snorkelling as the water is usually clear.
Vila Gale Lagos is 200m from Meia Praia Beach and 2km from the centre of Lagos, which is a historic town surrounded by 16th century walls. There's a castle to explore, or you can wander around the narrow cobbled streets of the old town, stopping for a drink in a local cafe. You could also take a tour around the vineyards of Monte da Casteleja to see how the local wines are made. The dramatic rock formations and cliffs of Ponta da Piedade are 5km away, or you could take a day trip to Cape St Vincent, the most south-westerly point of Europe.
The buffet restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and offers international cuisine. The hotel has an international a la carte restaurant and a pizzeria. There are also two bars, including one by the pool.
The hotel offers a kids' club and disco, and there's a playroom and a playground. A multi-sports court offers plenty of options to get active.
Rooms at Vila Gale Lagos all have individually controlled air conditioning. There's Wi-Fi, as well as a flatscreen TV with satellite channels.

This is a very difficult review for me to write as I would love to be giving the hotel more stars, but to help others with choice I have to be honest.

Location and facilities are very good, but the walls are made of paper. You can hear EVERYTHING from the neighbours. And the noise of the cleaning ladies (vacuum cleaner, moving furniture) in the...
