'nice holidays, nice place, nice staff. Good relation price-quality. Rooms are a little worn out, but enough for a comfortable stay. I recommend'

When we arrived, despite of our booking, they said us there was a problem and they didn't have a room for us, so that they proposed us to go to another hotel, having (even) less services. After my complains, they magically found a room for us in the hotel... voilà! My pillow was wasted, I had to change it. Breakfast is poor, but ok for a 2 stars hotel. Lots of stairs. No elecricity in room but a socket at the ceiling level (the one of the tv)! Pool nothing special.


Extremely old facilities, lack of conditioning causes true hell inside room during hot summer. We were cheated with sea view from our room, despite that we payed for it. View was straight into other hotel windows and wall. Breakfast includes trashy black water that they call cofee, milk inside cofee-machine was sour for 5 days. This hotel will be your personal hell after great beach and sun. Try to avoid that.

When we arrived we were told that although we had a confirmation email, a further email had been sent to say that we had not secured our room and that our deposit had been returned. I never received this email! Consequently, we were told that there were no rooms available and there was nothing they could do. We had to fly home 4 days early as there was nowhere that wasn't over £1000 a night available. I was devestated after having an amazing time in Lisbon and Porto. Don't stay here- terrible!!!


Nice hotel with a nice view and pool. Not a 5* more like a 2/3. Clean. Breakfast is ok.


Tivemos uma ótima estadia no Hotel da Galé. Ótima localização e alto custo/beneficio. RECOMENDO!


We have booked a three bedroom and got an two bed room with a mattress on the floor. In a first step all rooms where booked. After insisting and asking for a price discount a proper three bedroom was available... Bathroom facilities are worn out and old. The door did not always close. Breakfast was quite poor. Would not go there again.


The room 303 smells like moisture alot. Otherwise everything was ok.

Room 201 smells very bad, the property of the bathroom is very average use javel it is not so complicated. But your cleaning ladies are really nice and professional. View was good and for breakfast put some REAL orange juice not some medicine taste orange juice it makes so unprofessional the rest of the breakfast was good. Some nights we didn't sleep at all because of the noise it could be a good to promote respect and self control, we know some people were there to have fun but look after them


Great location, great place and friendly staff! You pay not so much and still get good service.


Nice hotel, as a cheap place to stay it was perfectly fine and we liked it. Not much atmosphere though, but without dorms and with such a big place, you can't really expect that. We would recommend it!


Beautiful view over the city and the sea. Our room had a cute balcony with the same view, just behind the swimming pool, which is very appreciable after going back from the beach :). Breakfast under the sunshades of the terrace is magic.


I am in love with Verónica, the receptionist! I will have to return in august! i really recommend this hotel for young trvallers, you will pay very little for fun and sunny days! I`ll be back for Verónica and also for the hotel!


Hotel Da Gale was excellent for the value for money. Pool is nice and clean. View is AMAZING cause its on a hill, so a bit of a walk up to the hotel from the beach but Old Town is the best place and its good to walk a bit on holiday anyways. Room was good and very secure & safe. Simple room and bathroom, hot water worked. They have a nice hotel dunno why its not very full. breakfast was v.average. There is a bar top floor but its not open at all which is a shame. Value for money!


we should stay in hostel Da Gale, but after their mistake, the offer us to stay in Apartmens Regina for the same money :) there was everythink clean, great swimming pool, breakfast included (bread, marmelade, butter, juice, coffee, orange), only a few metres from the sea and only one stree from the main shopping street. (the only minus was, that the reception was in April open only from 12 - 20:00 (but they waited for us till 21:30...) and the waitres by the breakfast doesnt speak english
