Having been to Vila Galé LAGOS on a previous holiday I just had to visit its sister hotel Vila Galé PRAIA.
Forty minutes from Faro airport, the drive was quick and the views are unerringly lovely, a fact that was only enhanced by the friendly welcome we had on arrival.
I know it’s what you would expect me to say, but the hotel is gorgeous! Let me elaborate… it’s simple, modern, clean and very peaceful which made us relax instantly. The room was a great size, and we had a sea view which I highly recommend upgrading for! As an added bonus, the beach is just minutes from the hotel and there are a restaurants and a couple of really cute ice cream shops there as well! As we went just before peak season it meant there were very few people on the beach which was complete heaven!
As an ex-therapist this is by far my favorite part of any break. The spa is small and intimate, the perfect size. While facilities including a Jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish bath and gym.
If the spa wasn’t my favourite part of the experience then the food most certainly would be. Providing a great choice of fare and catering for every taste – now that’s the sign of good customer service!
Probably not the ideal destination for families, this is the perfect getaway for couples and girls getting away for a bit of quality time with friends. Given the location it is ideal mini-break fodder, particularly with the beach so close by!
– Visiting the beach is a must! It is a very special place with lovely options for eating and drinking just five minutes from the hotel.
– If you can, go in April; the weather is just right then and it is extremely peaceful as it’s not peak season.
– Upgrade to a room with a sea view, you might even be able to see the sunsets from your balcony!
