A nice hotel with extremly good location. I had a room with seaview and it was magical. A complete breakfast with everything a Scandinavian guy could want.
And the staff is super friendly and willing to help and serve.

Pros: Stayed here for 3 nights. Had requested a handicap accessible room, but they did not have one, so had to negotiate a slippery tub, which seems common in Portugal. The bath was good size though, and our room was quite comfortable and roomy. Had a couch, table and 2 armchairs. Great view of the ocean and lighthouse. Restaurant wasn't that great, but the "Pro" was that the salad bar was good. Bar area was nice, and the staff very friendly.
Cons: You have to pay rental on the safe which we have not experienced at a hotel before. Food in the restaurant was cold on the buffet at breakfast, and staff seemed "put out" when you complained. Dinner food was not memorable (half-board option). Soup was good enough, but used for 3 days in a row. Mains were overcooked, and not seasoned well.

Room tip: Room overlooking back of hotel on the water/pool side.

We spent a week in Vila Gale in Cascais in July 2016 and it was a wonderful experience.
The hotel is located across the street form the ocean, in the close vicinity of a a beautiful park, little far from center Cascais, but offering perfect accommodation. The rooms are very large and clean, breakfast great to my own personal taste, the garden surrounding the hotel very pleasant and well kept.
The town of Cascais and surroundings are magnificent.
I would surely return.

The hotel is in the coastal resort of Cascais, also known as being in the Portuguese Riviera. The hotel is exception and is one of 27 hotels owned in Brazil and Portugal by the same chain. Most are at least 4* and we were treated like royalty the entire time we stayed. Children are allowed in the bar, not the norm in Canada or the US. Besides the amenities of this hotel you are able to walk to the town centre. It's a very easy walk taking perhaps 10 - 15 min just strolling. Do watch out for runners and bicycles. They are everywhere. Despite the claims that Portugal is a very inexpensive country to visit, it turns out not to be true at all - unless - you are far away from any kind of tourist destination, of which Cascais of course is. So expect to pay NA prices at least. You should also know that even though you will be told Tips are frowned on - don't believe a word of it. Tips are actively encouraged and very few places will refuse or don't actually expect one. This should not stop you from going. Both the hotel and the city are well worth a visit - and the wine - OMG - It's is worth a visit. Oh yes the wine. You can get a really good bottle for about $10 and a typical one for $5 or $6. :-)

Room tip: Try to get a room facing the water - the Sunsets is spectacular in March.
