We stayed at the hotel for 7 days and our stay could not have been better. Check-in was smooth and quick. Staff spoke English very well and were extremely helpful
and knowledgeable at all times.
We had a room on the 5th floor and the hotel did well to cater for our needs as we had a toddler with us. Not sure if all the rooms have a small kitchenette, but our's did which was quite handy for boiling water and washing etc.
Little difficult to locate the hotel at night in the dark, if driving. There is plenty of parking on site, although on weekends you may struggle to find parking if the hotel has an event on or is fully booked.
Breakfast: a large variety offered, although its the same thing everyday therefore can get a bit boring towards the end of your stay
Hotel Restaurant: Ate here a couple of times. There isn't much food choice, and prices are on par to that outside of the hotel. In town centre (10 mins walk from the hotel) you have a lot of places to eat, although they are generally priced for tourists and try and pull you in. If your willing to walk a bit further you will find other places to eat for less price and taste much better. There is also a food court on the 3rd floor of the shopping centre which is good.
Marina - Literally 5 mins walk from the hotel
Cascais town - 10mins walk from the hotel
Nearest beach - 10mins walk from the hotel - outside town centre
Train station - 25mins walk from the hotel
Nearest Supermarket - 30mins walk from the hotel
Nearest Shopping Centre 30mins walk from the hotel
The only negative thing I have to say about the hotel is the playground which was cordoned off. The hotel said it will be open when I emailed them before my trip, but there was some landscaping work being done in their gardens. A bit annoying but there is a lovely park about 10 mins walk from the hotel for young children and toddlers which is more appealing.
Would definitely stay here again.

My friend and I have just returned from a weekend stay. The staff at the hotel were so friendly, helpful and courteous. The breakfast was excellent with a
vast choice of hot and cold buffet available. We had to leave early on our last day and they opened the dining room early so we didn't miss out on a lovely breakfast. We also tried the evening buffet which was good value.
I would definitely stay again.

Good location in Cascais,ask for a room with the view to the see.Large rooms,very clean,the stuff is friendly.Room service works very well,good breakfast.Yet is good to know that from CASCAIS railway station you can take the bus in order to reach the hotel,but it wil last 40 min.If you go by train from CASCAIS to LISBOA,they have a kind of tran like R.E.R. PARIS and untill you arrive in LISBOA it last about 25 mins.Make a resrvation for fado evening.

We stayed here on the recommendation of a local Portuguese friend
The Vila Gale offers excellent value for money. It's in a good location; rooms are clean, modern and large; breakfast was excellent; and car parking was free.
If you are looking for a luxury romantic break, then look elsewhere. If you want good value for money, then this is a great option

Nice hotel, but attention to detail not great. The remote control only worked if you shook it and TV reception not great. Shower head at something wrong and the water came out at all angles! Having said that the bed was very comfortable and the room was quietish. Unfortunately I was near the lift shaft so that became noisy early in the morning. Someone else had a room near the air conditioning unit, which was also very noisy. So choose your room carefully! Breakfast was average. There was a good selection but the quality was very average.
