Stayed here on a self catering basis for 14 days from 3 November. Stayed in block 10 with swimming pool view. Apartment was spacious. 2 single beds pushed together, pillows were thin, but additional pillows in wardrobe if required. Bedclothes and towels were changed every other day. Big balcony facing the sun from early afternoon onwards. Overall clean and comfortable. As with all similar apartments main gripe is that you can hear almost everything which goes on in adjoining rooms, particularly early morning risers who move furniture on tiled floors. Two swimming pools, one of which is heated. The heated pool is obviously more popular, we chose to sunbathe by the other pool where there were never more than five couples sunbathing at a time, peaceful and quiet. Plenty of sunbeds available, however only 4 or 5 of them had adjustable head rests. Apartments are in a superb location close to the beaches, shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Did not eat at the hotel, so cannot comment on the Galeon Playa restaurant nor pool bar. However, we did use the Atlantic Bar at night if we returned early from a night out, good service there from the pleasant lady in charge.

Room Tip: Overall happy with Block 10, some rooms are located above shops and bars, we saw some people request...

Just got back from here and really enjoyed our stay. The complex is easily situated next to the beach and to other local amenities-bars, cafes, shops restaurants etc. The rooms were clean and well kept as were the gardens and swimming pool areas. All staff I met were very friendly and welcoming especially the restaurant staff who really were the nicest people you could hope to meet. The food was a little limited regarding range and variety but what was on offer was always fresh, well cooked and neatly presented.
Regarding the actual resort of Costa Teguise, the resort was a little too windy for me with a very stiff breeze coming across the sea every single day which whipped up the sand on the beach and made it quite unpleasant during sunbathing sessions. Also, there is not a lot to do in the evenings apart from mosey around the gift shops and drop into the odd bar with a vocalist on for the evening. This is really where the Galeon Playa could do with improving by getting on some decent entertainment for guests. Overall an enjoyable stay in a pleasant establishment!!

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view.

The hotel was been painted while we were there so is getting refreshed. Have stayed here twice in last 12mths and will prob return next year. Prefer to stay b&b as the breakfast is ideal for what we need and love to eat out on an evening. Because of its location you have the beach shops and loads of restaurants nearby. The hotel is dated which is why would class it as a budget hotel but the staff are great and cannot do enough for you and will rectify any concerns you have. If you want a clean bed and bathroom at a great price then this ticks the box for me.

What an amazing wander full time we had at the galeon playa arrived 1st November for some winter sun and was not disappointed 28-30c all week.
Airport
Took taxi to galeon cost €20 which I felt was very fair on arrival we was greeted at reception who had the room I'd requested block 4 room 320 all ready paid €30 for safe but get €20 back when you leave so I saved this for our taxi to airport.
Room
Top floor 2 flights of steps but did get used to that after a day or so, the room was spockless fridge cooker microwave everything u need really 2 sofas and as there was just the two of us we put one on the balcony leading from the living room and put table and 4 chairs on the balcony leading from the bedroom, both balconies looked over the pool and had sea view.the room was cleaned 4 times and fresh towels changed.
The whole complex was cleaned each morning inc pool it was above average to say the least.
Area
Central location great bars which serve breakfast from €2.50 cheap as chips to eat Erik's on the strip was our fav for breakfast we also did the Chinese buffets our option was the Asian restaurant €5 adults was far better than the others there are so many places to eat and so very cheap
Trips
We did the grand tour €45 each inc meal booked with the hut outside galeon was ripped of if you walk to the sea from last minute travel did the same trip €25 euros to late when u have booked ..... But what an amazing day so glad we did it you will not be disappointed but a word of warning opt out of the meal it was dreadful and there is plenty of food stops on the trip
All said and done the galeon is now our favourite place to stay we are a gay female couple aged 40 we really really enjoyed it and £204 each it was a real bargin already booked for two weeks next oct 14 and again cheap as chips £474 for the two of us for two weeks carnt wait

We have just returned from spending a week in Galeon Playa apartamentos. Our advice, take heed of all the negative comments! Despite the overall positive rating by apparently satisfied customers, we certainly have to agree with the more negative comments which we thought were being made by overly "fussy" tourists.
1.First impressions DO matter. A tired looking reception area does not bode well. 3 star accommodation it may be, but no star value for presentation.
2.Flakey paintwork and "tired" decor we could deal with, but more basic needs i.e. a fridge that works, and the opportunity to boil a kettle and make toast at the same time,(lack of sockets) are not being met. The bedroom, although certainly decent in size, could have benefitted from a decent set of pillows and sheets that you could not see daylight through! To top it all, we had the unwelcome visit from ants in our beds, albeit domestic staff were on hand to do what they could to resolve this issue.
3. All is not negative. During our holiday we enjoyed arranged trips, in particular visiting the beautiful island of La Graciosa. We must give 10/10 credit to the tour company and guides for the well arranged and informative tours. Lanzarote island did not let us down but I do not recommend that you stay at Galeon Playa
4. All things considered, this is a TIRED old holiday venue stuck in the 1970's. If you want (AND ARE PAYING FOR) a quality holiday in Lanzarote, give Galeon Playa a miss. You will only need to walk past the front door to see what I mean is true.

Room Tip: We likened our room (on floor E9) to "cell block H". No view, looking directly over child...
