We stayed at the Gale Nautico from the 29/07/14 and returned today. This may have been a five star review i had not been the ear infection that my son suffered that ruined the last three days of our stay. The rumour going around the resort was that maybe up to 10 to 15 children had suffered ear infections with the general consensus being that the indoor pool was to blame. When I spoke to reception seeking advice where to take my son for medical attention they even stated that this was happenig alot. We did speak with the Thomas Cook Rep who stated that he had spoken to the manager who did not seem interested and passed it off like a politician.
I do really belive they need to address the ear infection problem. On one day they closed the pool and I thought finally they are doing something and recognising the problem only to find that they had erected a scaffold in the pool to fix the celing that had fallen into it and then opened it soon after
As I said earlier this may have easily been a five star review. Generally the hotel was excellent. It was very clean (bordering on excessive) and the food was pretty good, everything you would have expected for all inclusive. During the day they offer snacks around the pool that everybody seemed delighted with such as burger and chips and baguettes.
Entertainment was pretty good on some nights ,especially the dancers!!. And the staff were excellent and very friendly
I hope they sort this problem out as this is a very good hotel with great staff who are very attentive.
