Fab stay, great location
Kathryn , Ireland
We had a fabulous time at the hotel, a bit of a slow start with check in but received a complimentary beverage as part of the apology. We couldn't believe the facilities and location of the hotel for the extremely competitive price we paid. The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel was in a great location for both the marina and the beach. Our room was fantastic, clean, comfortable and overlooked the beach. I would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to others.
The best thing about my stay was...The atmosphere.

Friendly, clean hotel in great location!

We booked the Vila Gale Ampalius due to its fantastic location at a very competitive price. Our double room was very clean, large with comfy bed, had a bathroom with bath and shower and a good sized balcony overlooking the beach. Everything you could wish for was served at breakfast, including a good prosecco! It only took five minutes to walk to the beautiful marina and the beach was literally on the doorstep! The pool area was very windy on all three occasions that we have stayed here but we would definitely stay at the hotel again.
The best thing about my stay was...The location to the marina was the best thing about this stay.

Location, location, location.
Vila Gale Ampalius is a super Hotel, facilities are very good and the Hotel is spotless. We have stayed here quiet a few times over the last 10 years and this year our Junior Suite was top class, much better than previous years. The decor had been upgraded and the suite has two king sized beds with very comfotable matresses. The furniture and TV were also new. The location is first class right next to the beach and the marina less then a 5 min walk. If I was to find a fault it would only be related to the quality of the Cofee in the restaurant in the morning, its terrible. It comes out of dispencing machines and its such a shame because the buffet breakfast is otherwise very good.
The best thing about my stay was...Location and cleaniness.

I have stayed here a few times and I am always impressed with the location, clean rooms and friendly staff. The breakfast buffet ticks the boxes however it can be a bit manic at times when busy. It maybe has to be spread out a bit better using more of the space available. Purabeach is next door and is loud so I hope this will not ruin guests enjoyment as the summer season begins.
The best thing about my stay was...The staff are a credit to the hotel

You can pre register before you arrive but Ireland is not one of their countries on the list of countries.I did complain that I was not from the UK, it took 600 years to get rid of them. Bedrooms are standard but the deminisions would not be large enough to qualify for a 4 star in Ireland. Breakfast , Cold Buffet, Fruit fantastic. The cooked rashers(bacon) sausages and mushrooms were of terrible quality and badly cooked .They need to replace all the cooked products from Ireland.
The best thing about my stay was...The Weather and the location of the hotel to the beach.

Vila Gale Ampalius hotel, superior sea view twin room, our room was a nice size, beds were comfortable, beautiful sea views. Very quiet. The bathroom was a little dated, however all was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of hot and cold food and drink. Staff in all areas were polite and approachable, nothing was to much trouble. The location was perfect, a stroll across the road to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the Marina where there is a fantastic choice of restaurants and bars. The pool area has well maintained mature gardens, plenty of sunbeds and a bar. We also enjoyed the spa. We would definitely recommend this hotel for a relaxing break, lovely views and beach.
The best thing about my stay was...Everything, couldn't fault our stay

This was our first time at the Vila gale amplius, check in was easy and straight forward with a friendly and warm welcome . The hotel is immaculate and standard excellent. We were bed and breakfast and the breakfast was amazing with so much to choose from . We had free wifi and the day we left we were not charged for leaving our luggage. The bar cocktails and entertainment were also nice .the pool area was lovely and well looked after, We will without any hesitation return to this hotel .
The best thing about my stay was...The whole experience
