Located in the heart of Vilamoura, a resort set on a built-up marina close to Albufeira. Vila Galé Amaplius is probably best left to those who prefer an urban resort atmosphere and brash restaurants and clubs. The hotel itself is one among hundreds of other hotels and bustling restaurants. If you are thinking of coming here, think again. Vilamoura is the place to come for partying throughout the night and if you are lucky, you might even catch the sight of a couple of major Portuguese football players. The advantage with holidaying in such a compact area is that there is no need for a car unless you want to explore the region, which we strongly recommend as it is beautiful. The resort itself has some great views over the marina, but it is in dire need of a complete refurbishment. The hotel is however well-placed for golf lovers as there are several golf courses nearby.
