4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2011

Friendly staff. Very quiet room, not the biggest one but clean and comfortable. The swimmingpool in the inner patio is like a small paradise and very relaxing.
The breakfast was excellent. Lot's of choice in everything.

No Wifi in the room, only at the lobby. They really should do something about it.
That's my only comment about Galleon

Room Tip: Rooms in main building have a nicer view outside

Just home from staying at the Galeon for 10 nights and there isnt really anything that you can fault. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. On checking in we were given a voucher for a free glass of cava at their sister hotel which was a great start to our holiday.

No need to take beach towels with you as the hotel supplies these and can be changed every day. You need to pay a deposit of 15 euros for each towel but you get this back at the end of your stay.

Breakfast is served between 8am and 12noon and there is no hurry to leave, plus the spread is fantastic. I have never seen so much choice for breakfast even in 5 star hotels.

We have stayed in Sitges many times and for value for money the Galeon takes a lot of beating. Will definately be back

Room Tip: Have heard the annex rooms have kettles

I enjoyed my stay - and overall the hotel was very good.

On arrival, I did experience a problem - I was allocated a single room when I'd booked a double/twin. I had to stay in the single room (which was tiny) for my first night. The next day, it was suggested to me that because I was a single occupant, my single room was as I'd booked online - and that there were no double rooms available unless I paid extra. However, when I pushed the issue, the receptionist contacted Travel Republic who (I guess) confirmed I should be in a double. A double room was then "found" and I moved into it. This room was excellent - large and spacious. It was located in the Pavilion part of the hotel (in a different building). I preferred this as it was much quieter than the main hotel.

The quality of the breakfast was excellent - the food and drink was replenished regularly and the range of items on offer was consistently good. Even the coffee (freshly ground) was great. It is a pity that the hotel doesn't offer a half-board option - especially if they could maintain this standard. However, there are a plethora of restaurants to choose from in Sitges.

Security was fine - the Pavilion doesn't have a receptionist but entry is via a buzzer.

I was pleasantly surprised by the pool area - which is a quiet haven. And half the pool area is shaded (which was useful during my stay as the temps. were very high). It is a pity there aren't more loungers (there is a mix of loungers and plastic chairs) - there is room for more, and very often guests would arrive at the pool and leave if all the loungers were taken.

Afternoon tea is provided and this is also a great way to break up the afternoon and meet other guests.

The staff were helpful at all times and polite and pleasant. Free wi-fi was also available in the reception areas of both buildings (but as I was on the ground floor I could access it in my room too!)

Overall: super hotel; recommended.

Just returned from a week's holiday in Sitges and I'm so impressed with all the changes at the Galeon. I last visited in 2007 and was happy to stay again (although beds weren't very comfy and breakfast finished too early at 10am). It's all change now and for the better, I was so impressed. Reception really friendly, afternoon tea at 4pm, rooms cleaned every day, breakfast open until midday, rooms all re-done, beds new and so comfy. I was most certainly be coming back to the Galeon, really impressed. (only downside was my room was by stairs so was woken up too early every morning by people talking)

We stayed at this hotel because we were unable to stay at the Platjador and we are so glad we did. The front desk staff were very courteous and helpful. The staff in the dining room the same. Our room was very cosy with an enormous 7ft bed and a balcony which was in the shade lovely. The bathroom left something ro be desired, the shower head swung around onto the shower curtain(shower curtain in 2011?) this caused flooding every time we used it. The breakfast was unbelievable starting with Cava(as much as you could drink and still walk) and an amazing selection of food constantly topped up, no sad cold eggs here. All served until 12.00 what a treat!. Afternoon tea in Spain? yes and very welcome it was served in a comfortable a/c room at three lovely.
Only one nitpick 3 euro per day charge for safe All round a very enjoyable stay and look forward to returning.

the breakfast is amazing and so much of it..although some dishes were strange and small cups / glasses of things ive never seen before and not brave enough to try..but im sure they were delicious..
the only small gripe..its about time for a make over of the 'pavillion' entry hallway..all the gloomy old fashioned albeit spanish old fashioned furniture and 'old masters' on walls a bit dated..
but bedroom very spacious and clean and fab shower..
will be back

We stayed for 3 nights, along with 2 other couples. We picked this Hotel for is value and location as we were in Sitges to attend a wedding. How glad we felt that we had not booked a seafront hotel at higher prices. This lovely hotel tucked away, but still very central for all needs was perfect. The room was nicely furnished , very clean and the shower was incredible. Ok so there wasnt really a view on the patio, but we hadnt booked the hotel for that resaon. The pool area was very tranquil and afternoon tea (complimentary) was a nice touch. The breakfast was outstanding with a huge amount of choice, with the added bonus of cava! Great that it is served until 12noon. The hotel staff were extremely helpful, ordering taxis and went out of their way to print off some boarding cards, including running to another hotel to obtain the copies when their own printer malfunctioned! Will we be back? Well if we are every in Sitges again yes.

Room Tip: Pavillion rooms appeared to be more recently updated.
