Property Description

Hotel da Galé** is a small beach hotel, located in Cerro da Piedade, at the town center a few minutes walk from the historical Moorish castle, and just 100m of the new Albufeira marina. Its prime location allows our clients to be about 50m from the main beach of Albufeira. (Peneco's Beach).
Its style is very light and maritime decoration, it has 60 double and triple rooms, with or without balcony, some have a beautiful sea view. This hotel has internet only on the social areas.
All rooms have their own private bathroom with bathtub, telephone, safety box and cable TV.
On the top floor we have the Navy Bar with its panoramic view, we can dare to say, the best sea view in the entire Algarve, with background music to relax after you come from the beach or before you go for dinner in town.
The breakfast room is also on the top floor where you can choose between having the breakfast indoors or at our marvelous terraces facing the sea and the Algarve coastline, looking at the sailing boats crossing the ocean.

Facilities: Our swimming pool is located on one of the terraces, alongside a natural solarium with sun lounges.

Peneco Beach is less than 150 metres away, and the hotel is just 100 metres from the new Albufeira Marina.

There are two tennis courts about 20 metres from the hotel, which we will be happy to book for you if you are interested in sports.

If you prefer golf, our receptionist can make bookings for you at one of the golf courses nearby.

Beach: There are 22 beaches in the council of Albufeira.

Check-In: From 14.00 to 20.00
Check- Out: From 08.00 to 11.00

It is required at the moment of check in a security deposit of 50-100€

Late check-in is possible only on written request.

Its south-facing coast is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, but is greatly influenced by the warm waters of the Mediterranean, making Albufeiras beaches one of the best in Europe.

Why not enjoy the water sports we have to offer: sailing, windsurfing, jet skis, or for those less radical a boat trip along the coast.

Please be aware we only accept cancellation by email or fax. View House Rules

    Room is basic but we had a nice balcony with sea views. Staff very friendly and helpful. We asked for a table for the balcony and extra pillows and they arrived quickly. Could have done with a few more hangers but we managed. Breakfast was good and it was lovely to eat it on the rooftop terrace with great views towards the beach. All in all excellent value for money.

    We arrived at the hotel and were showed our room. Everything was damp and musty. The closet smelled so bad it was clear there was mold in the walls. The bathroom was worse with visible mold in the Grout of the tiles I have an allergy to mold so we asked to check out immediately. Management was not helpful at all in is trying to recoup some of our 3 nights paid.
