    The food was very good, various types every day.

    I didn`t like the room, the bed wasn`t double there was twin beds in a superior double room. The seaview was not very clear we had a Mc.`s roof view instead of the ocean and during the night it was very noisy with the window closed. The drinks for the dinner were extra cost.

    We stayed in Hotel Gala for one week and Thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked the fact that you could to the pool at any time of the day and there was always a sunbed available. I liked the food we stayed half board and found there was plenty of selection for all the family. I liked that the children could use inflatables in the swimming pool. I liked that the bar man gave us ice any time at no charge. I would go back to Hotel GAla again.

    I didn't like the shower in our hotel room it barely had any power. | didn't like that every time you moved in the bed they made a lot of noise.

    Food was very nice, also swimming pool and facilities for children. Location was very good as it was close to the beach, bus, Siam Park and to the promenade beside the beach.

    Overall it was a good hotel. We were happy with most aspects of it.

    Sometimes they wouldn't take cash at the pool bar so you needed your door card but other times they would take the cash so it was inconvenient at times. Some staff were very friendly and helpful but some were not.

    We liked the location, close to the beach, to shops and to bars. We enjoyed the restaurant, the buffet was very varied and very good quality. People at the reception were very helpful. After the check out, we could let our luggages to a baggage room and go to the beach and take a shower which was very convenient. We also liked the program during the evening from 10pm to 11pm

    The waiting staff didn't speak English and except one female waiter which was very unfriendly, the rest was very nice and helpful.

    The Room and cleanliness.

    Lizards in the Balcony flowerbeds. and the food in buffet was nothing special. the staff looked eternally unhappy too. bad atmosphere. also they expect é17 for lunch when you can buy for a fraction of the price along the boulevard. Also no irons available.

  • 6.2

    The only thing that I felt you could do with is a ptinter attached to your computers at the internet site that you have. As most airlines now want the travelling public to pre print boarding cards it is a bit cumbersome to have to e,mail to have them printed

    The Hotel is very clean, there are always places at pool area. The beach is very close, just you have to across the road. Food was very good, everyday was different main course. Absolutely no issues.Rooms were always clean and tidy, there are double glasses and double doors! So you cannot here the noise outside.At common areas you can find wifi, which is works perfectly. There were lot of young couples and families, not just old tourists. The wellness is very good as well, there are sauna, steam, whirlpool, jacuzzi.Very relaxing after a sunny beach day. I recommend to take a car and discover the island!!! Don't sit in one place, this island has lot of beauties!

    Very few staff people can speak other languages than Spanish. Even they cannot speak English or German, but the main staff waitress and receptionist can.No big party places, just bars and all around the streets there are the young inviter, who they trying to push you into the bar. The jacuzzi was full with chlorine.

    Very good location, 5 minutes walk to the beach. The Veronica Strip and pubs full with British yobs are very close, so you have to close the windows for the evening if you want to get some sleep, unless you have a seaview room

    We got a room on the ground floor, no balcony at all, no view, it was pretty dark and annoying, when we woke up we couldn't determine whether it's morning or still evening. For the money we paid we expected at least a balcony with some view and we was not stick with seaview only. Anyway, when I asked for a room with balcony, the lady at reception was very unhelpful and dismissing. The next day we managed to get a new room with the help of another receptionists, so our holiday was 'saved'.

    Hotel staff were great, very clean throughout, entertainment team was very good although slightly later than advertised, great value for money. Lovely hotel, good food and warm welcome.

    Room was facing veronica's strip so was somewhat difficult to get to sleep before 1am. Payment card system used in hotel - rather than paying with cash you are asked to pay on your room key and pay at the reception later, this has its benefits ie not having to carry cash to the poolside etc but also drawbacks of lack of control over what your spending as you can quickly run up a large bill on the card. Also the hotel is geared towards Europeans, with high numbers of German, Spanish and Belgian/Dutch and a lack of British guests. Again this has its benefits and drawbacks. Benefits- no lads/louts running riot in the hotel/by the pool. Drawbacks- hard to communicate with other guests and establish friendships

    Buffet ok, good location, clean.

    Can be noisy if your room is close to the sea side.
