Lovely hotel but avoid the food

Review by foodlover42solihull Birmingham, United Kingdom

I got home yesterday from the Hotel Vila Gale in Lagos. It is a really lovely hotel, situated about 20 to 25 mins walk from the centre of Lagos.

Positives: The hotel is modern, good facilities with gym, large outdoor pool, 2 bars and 3 restaurants. Checking was quick, the reception area is large, clean and staff are efficient...

I loved my room with a balcony and sea view. I asked for a kettle for my room and one was brought up with tea, coffee, milk etc and replenished if you ask for it. The grounds are really very nice and sprawl a long way. Location is very good for walking to Lagos, there is also a little hop on hop off train that comes every hour or so that takes you into Lagos for 3.5 euros, which is good. Get a timetable from reception. The selection of drinks in the bar is good, we were all inclusive. The beer was quite nice (Sagres) and good branded spirits eg Beefeater Gin, Jack Daniels Whiskey, Aperol, etc. Wines were also very good.

Negatives:

Mainly the food! Breakfast was 'OK', but gets busy. Fair amount of choice but things empty fast, eg orange juice, fried eggs, and aren't always replenished quickly. All of the food was consistently cold, unless just replenished. Bacon, sausages, mushrooms, eggs all stone cold. The staff do not bring coffee or tea to your table- you need to get it yourself, which I think is unusual for a 4 star. There was a decent choice of fruits, cold meats, pancakes etc, but not as good as many other hotels I've stayed at. Lunch, again 'ok', but was same selection of food every day, and always stone cold. There is a small pool bar outside which also serves food, which may be better but I didn't eat there. Evening meals were extremely poor. Same terrible, cold food each day, often the same as lunch selection. There is a life chef who manages to make any food rock hard and tasteless, consistently! If we hadn't laughed we would have cried. First night the live chef cooked choice of octopus tentacles, that were rock hard, cold rubber, or rock hard, cold chicken pieces. Next day was tiny pieces of salty cold seabass. I really wish we hadn't gone all inclusive, it was very expensive and not worth it. I complained, and the Assistsnt Manageress listened intently but insisted the good is how they eat it in Portugal. I explained we have been yo other parts of Portugal and the food was amazing, unlike this sorry plate of disappointment. By way of apology, she booked us into their new flagship Italian restaurant, which was also terrible. I had a lasagne, which was edible but didn't really contain any meat that I could see, no cheese or sauce. It was 2 pasta sheet layers with a fine mush between, also tiny portions. My mom had a bland risotto, which was OK, but very tiny. Starters were poor, and we left disappointed. My only other gripe, was the beach is quite a good walk away, through the grounds, over a train line then through a car park. The beach is very clean and very large. We didnt have great weather so didn't go in the sea ( it rained 2 days out of 4).

I left feeling the hotel itself was great and gas huge potential, if they can sort out the food. Maybe design a good menu and get a decent chef.

Relaxing stay

Staff were excellent very friendly and couldn't do enough to ensure you enjoy your stay. The property is close to the best beach and a short taxi ride to Lagos town centre. I would certainly recommend this hotel and their staff to anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday at a sensible price

Lovely Hotel Great location

Very good hotel for families or couples excellent location food & drinks all good we stayed in a family suite with sea views very nice room & clean .

Kids club was fantastic for our twin boys age 4 staff were excellent & also with them a great team .

The only negative for myself that there was nowhere to watch sport during the day as the main bar was closed i’m not open till 6 o’clock @ night don’t see why it could not be open during the day to have lunch a drink and cool off with a nice cold drink.

Would definitely return to the hotel in the future

Rather 3* than 4* , but not a staff problem

Review by svenoehl Munich, Germany

Below average 4 Star Hotel.

Gym - small and very very old machines, i have never seen something worse than this Gym

Breakfast - below average too for 4*

Rooms ok, but lights in bathrooms very bad

Cleaning personal 5* - very good

Pool area ok - Most sunbeds should be replaced !!!

Italian restaurant food very good - Poolbar food too

Room keys 1st 3 days did not work - seems difficult to make them work 😂🙈😂

All in all not much value in my opinion ( 150E a night )
