Hotel Galaxia
Ranked #33 of 39 Hotels in Ca'n Picafort
Reviewed 26 April 2012

We had a room on the 5th Floor with a rear facing balcony which was nice and quiet and got the sun in the afternoon. The room was cleaned daily and bathroom small but functional, plenty of wardrobe space and was close to the lift. No television, iron or hair dryer though.

Hotel despite being only a single star was family run and the owners & staff were very pleasant at all times. The bar had a performer one of the evenings which drew in a crowd and drinks were very reasonable at 1.80 euroe for a large beer and 3 euros for a half litre of Sangria.The restaurant filled up very quickly at meal times but you could always eat in the bar area so this was not a problem. The food in the main was hot but not too much choice and sometimes it was difficult to see what it was befire you ate. Nevertheless, there was always pleanty of salad, cold meats and fresh fruit at all times. The older waiter was a star and tables cleared away quickly after you had finished a course.

Great location as only a short distance to the beach and bus stop a short walk away. We hired bikes and the trip to Alcudia is about 8 kilometers and took about an hour. The whole area is supported by many cycle ways is is flat going west of Can Picafort. Big nature reserve on the doorstep too.

All in all the hotel was a real bargain and is really friendly but don't expect the Ritz and you will not be disappointed. I would certainly recommend for a holiday on a budget as we intended from the outset.

Hotel Galaxia is fantastic, we were stay in spring 2011. Stuff was very nice and helpfull, breakfast and dinners was been absolutely amazing - both buffet style, very high standard of meal, much better than other restaurant (including expensive restaurant) in city. Room and bathroom is simply, but combortable for us and it was cleaning every day of our stay.
Excellent value...Definitively we came back to hotel Galaxia next time in majorca.

The first thing is that you should adapt your expectation to the value. We paid around 40 Euros per night the couple full board. The room is spacious and everything was cleaned perfectly everyday. The bathroom is quite small, but it works. The location is amazing, 50 m from the beach and the beach with water clear as glass. Moreover we had a room with a big balcony, which was very nice. The food was good, breakfast and dinner was a resonable variety and the staff working hard to make everyting available. Lunch is more simple as most guests have lunch outside. However the difference from half board to full board was like 2 euros per peron, so amazing value. Staff really nice and helpful. The bus to Palma takes 1 hour and half and in our last day it was nice to spend day in Palma. I would go back for sure.

We are just home after spending a week half board at the Galaxia and we are already planning to return next June for a longer stay. While the rooms are basic, we had plenty of room for 3 adults sharing and beds were very comfortable and bed linen spotless. Our bathroom was excellent and low bath was perfect for my 78 year old mother to step into the shower. We had a good sized balcony and although it didnt get the sun, it was lovely to sit there for some respite from the very hot sun, and also to people watch at your leisure.
Choice at breakfast was fantastic with cereal, lovely choice of hot freshly baked breads, croissants and cakes, cold meats, cheese, tomatoes, cucumber and eggs and as much juice and coffee as you could drink. Evening Meals were similar with lots of salad and a choice of meat or fish, veg and pasta or chips and again lots of freshly baked bread.
Pedro worked very hard ensuring there was plentiful supplies of food throughout serving times and always with a smile.
The staff were great, friendly and very helpful. Cleaners delivered freshly laundered towels (still warm) every morning. We were happy to keep our towels for more than a day but the cleaning staff insisted on giving us clean fresh towels frequently.
The hotel has tables outside where you can eat or have a coffee and people watch and the hotel is only a stones throw from a wonderful beach and promenade with a fantastic choice of bars, restaurants and entertainment.
We absolutely loved our time at the Hotel Galaxia and would definitely say this was one of the best holidays we have ever had. You dont need to stay in 5 star accommodation to get great service. We would highly recommend this hotel to everyone and we are looking forward to our return next June

we stayed at the Galaxia hotel for one week on full board.
food was plenty and Pedro is nice guy.
for the price we payee it was quite good
room was ok with a great balcony.
it takes 3 hours with the transfer bus to get there, you better off taking the taxi spend bit more but you get there in 1 hour.

Just had a 4 night stay with my wife,hotel is clean and in a great location for the resort but don't expect to get much sleep due to constant banging of doors by guests.The staff were friendly.If you're on a tight budget then it's ideal but I wouldn't want to stay a week or more here,4 nights was enough.Also we had no hot water for 3 days the problem was solved at 18:45 on the Saturday night and we were checking out Sunday morning.The en suite is a cupboard but useable(just)All in all ca'n picafort is a nice resort and I would go back there again but perhaps not to the galaxy.

We are having 10 days here all inclusive, this cost us including airport parking at Luton, flights and coach transfers to the hotel £500 each!! We are here until Friday the 15th and are loving it. It is exactly what it says on the tin, a typical Spanish one star hotel. The food is similar to what we have had in loads of similar Spanish hotels. Staff and owners are all very friendly and helpful, the food and drink service is available when advertised and the variety is acceptable. The hotel is on a busy street, if you like people watching it is ideal you can sit in the bar and watch the constant flow, if you are a light sleeper you might find the evening/night noise a little too much. You are 20 metres from the beach which is clean and sandy, the water is clear as glass. If you are into evening entertainment you can sit in the bar and enjoy the music from across the road most evenings there are at least two bars within 5mins that have tribute bands most evenings.

Room Tip: If you are a bit on the tubby side ask for a room with a larger en-suite the one we had was the smal...
