Just got back from a weeks stay at galeon playa. Fantastic location with a beach across the road or a choice of other beaches a very short walk away, was close to all restaurants and bars, our fav was mels jels who do the most fantastic ham toasties! Would def go back!! To us the heat pool didn't feel very warm, but overall fantastic stay and very clean.

Just got back from the Galeon Playa 18th oct for two weeks, accom is basic but clean and plenty of room the maids came in 4 days a week and did a great job. Great location the big beach is great for the waves we had an influx of jellyfish after a storm, so many restaurants most are good. Try the Vesubio pizzeria round the corner from neptunes bar great food, the fuel stop on the front is good also great with the kids.
The entertainment team consists of Tatiyana!! Who did the music and the minidisco which my daughter loved she gets all the kids involved. Erica behind the bar is a great double act with Tatiyana they make the night (Hey crazy!!) Beers average about 1 euro 50 you can get a beer for 1 euro! The pool is freezing we headed to the beach everyday, we didnt eat at the galeon playa but the pool bar is quite reasonable. Thanks to the Galeon Playa for making out holiday i can really recommend this place cheap clean great location and entertainment team.

Room Tip: 2nd or third floors i heard there were ants on the bottom floors

Just back from our first visit to the Canaries & Galeon Playa. We really enjoyed it here, it is in a really good location close to Punta Jablillo (great for snorkelling) and Las Cucharas (great for waves!) beaches, there is a good Hippodino supermarket right opposite reception and BBVA bank/ATM close by. You are also very near to the centre of Costa - so many nice bars and restaurants but our favourite was Slow Boat chinese buffet across the road - we loved it here, our son couldn't get enough of the place!!!!

I had contacted Galeon prior to arrival and requested a room with sea/pool view and high floor and got all 3 so we were happy. Arrival at reception was straightforward and courteous, we were allocated top floor room 316 in block 4 which overlooked the snack bar and large pool area. The apartment was clean and spacious with 2 sofa beds in the living area. Fridge was clean and ok. Balcony was nice size but a bit tired - needed repainting and plastic furniture needed replacing as quite worn. We could hear the pool/snack bar music right by us but personally we never found this intrusive as it was kept to a lowish volume and was turned off when the snack bar closed at 6/7pm. Bad points - bed linen all looked a bit tired, cooker needed replacing as one of the rings tripped the electric and looked a bit ropey, ripped shower curtain.

We went self catering so never used the main restaurant but pool snack bar was good and quite reasonable for drinks etc, nice staff. Neither did we make use of the entertainment provided as went out each night and did our own thing.

The large supposedly heated pool by us, we found pretty cold so only used it once, we preferred swimming in the sea as there are lots of fab beaches in Costa, however the pools were kept very clean as were the surrounding terraced areas and gardens etc.

There were 2 computers in the reception area which you could use - these are coin operated so not free wifi etc. Also luggage weighing machine, post office service and exchange.

I would recommend these apartments primarily for location, if you are expecting 5* then you will want to go elsewhere but they are clean, good value in my opinion and close to all Costa Teguise has to offer - we will return!!

Room Tip: apartments in blocks 4 and 5 get a good deal of sun throughout the day - ask for a high floor these...

We stayed at the Galeon Playa October 10th 2011 for a week. We found the accomadation very nice but basic. The appartment was clean and spacious, We were told that we would have a maid service 4 times in the week, this did not happen, she came in twice and only emptied our bin. She did not clean anything at all, we only had our towels changed once and our bed was only topped and tailed once. this was in our opinion not satisfactory as the weather was so very hot and sticky. The staff were courtious but did only speak to you if you spoke to them first. They did mop all the pool area every day ---- But there were no wet floor signs antwhere and the ground was very slippy.

There were a lot of good bars and restraunts with in walking distance and we were very close to the beach. Just out side the entrance there is a lovely place for breakfast called Mel Jels well worth a visit. very nice people too.

Room Tip: higher floors had better views and less noise, we encountered a lot of very noisy children, but we d...

Just back from a family holiday. We stayed at the G playa for a week. We found the apartment very clean and the staff were very friendly. It had a nice pool area, there was plenty of loungers so it was never an issue. we booked self catering due to the fact the food has been poor over our last few holidays. However we payed to get the half board after the second day, the food here was as good as going out to the restaurants. Anyone staying at this hotel should pay the little bit extra for half board, its worth it ! Another major positive about this hotel was the fact it catered brilliantly for my 5 year old daughter. They have a kids play from 11 -1 each day and mini discos at night with good entertainment. The only problem i had was the beds, they were a bit hard.

good points - central location, very clean, friendly staff, nice pool area, great for kids

bad points - beds were solid

Great location, two lovely little bays on your dorstep, spacious 2 roomed accomodation with two balconies well furnished for enjoying the wonderful weather. Close to local bus stop with cheap, easily to follow routes for all locations - FORGET organised tours you can do it yourself much cheaper using local buses and taxis. Plenty of bars and restaurants in close proximity and usual tacky tourists shops. Alcohol and Ciggies cheap from local shops but NOT when buying in cafes/bars/restaurants. BUT.........
Apartments in need of complete refurbishment. Instead of the sea view requested we got a view of Children's Play Area and Entertainment Bar - both noisy till after midnight. Bathroom stank of drains/sewage problem - reception said they would investigate but we never heard any more. Built-in microwave was defunct and a replacement was sat on a dining chair nowhere near a powerpoint. Kitchen area was overrun with Ants so we didn't ever eat in. Fridge was rusty and only worked on Max - icebox completely frosted up and smelly. Room service was hit and miss - clean towels when asked for were threadbare and smelly. I would never use this complex again unless it had been updated but such a shame as potentially it could be a winner. Resort was the best of all other major resorts we visited.

Room Tip: Steer away from E8,9,10 and 11. Very noisy at night.

arrived late evening on first look it looked good apartments were roomy and clean , next day we started to see loads of ants we reported it at reception and some one came out with ant spray to sort them out , next day however we still had ants and then we started to see cockroaches we killed a couple of small ones but later when my son and his girlfriend were in bed they started to see cockroaches coming out of a crack in the wall , reported it again and we asked to move rooms we were given keys to another room which was bigger but we couldnt open doors to the balconey wardrobe doors in bedroom hanging of we only got our towels changed once that week instead of 4 times and that was only because we went to reception to complain . if you want to sit by the pool you have to be out early to get sunbeds cos people get the beds leave towels on them and dissapear for hours on end , would not go there again .
