Vila Gale Atlantico Hotel

At the Vila Gale Atlantico Hotel, the emphasis is on relaxation. The hotel combines a peaceful pool scene with great sea views and easy access to one of the best beaches in the Algarve.

Adults can sunbathe in the perfectly manicured gardens around the kidney-shaped pool or even book a pampering session in the hotel spa. There’s also plenty to keep little ones active and happy, including a kids’ pool with slides to whoosh down. There’s even an action-packed kids’ club.

The main restaurant’s the place to be for meals, but if you’re hungry in between, there’s a snack bar near the pool.
