“NOT A THREE STAR”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Good clean hotel But very basic It is not a three star more like a two star very clean and staff are very good and helpful. Food good and hot But very little choice. we wanted to buy a camera there as you do not pay tax on anything. found a shop round the corner from the hotel if you go out of the hotel and turn right and then right again you will find one there it is called, V. Lucky Electronics. please please leave well alone Big con you can buy anything at half the price if you go left of the hotel a good walk away, But very well worth it in the end.if you want a good sea view and sun all day ask for block E1 room 205.

Room Tip: get room 205 block e1

Good facilities for the kids, nice kids club and entertainment during the day. The buffet breakfast was good (except for the usual spanish bacon), but the rest of the food was good. Would definately go again.

Just back from staying here for a week and must say have a very mixed review of the place
. Excellent location, 2 minutes from the beach and the promenade where you can access a number of excellent walks to take in the coast along with some old tracks and see the history of the resort.
Accommodation
In block E10 room 364
View of the smaller pool and kids play area - this was being re painted during our stay but no bother.
Apparently thus was one if the recently renovated rooms!!!! Paint chipped off walls,lights hanging off the walls and flashing. bed linen clean but very thin quality. New mattress? No idea and reception couldn't confirm this either- nit the most comfy but ok.
No dressing table or draws in the bedroom but large double mirrored wardrobe
Well equipped kitchen with microwave, toaster and kettle if you needed it.

Food- we booked half board, no need as fab restaurants within a few yards of the apartments and very cheap too.
Hmmmm well, staff in restaurant very friendly....one doubled as a maintenance guy/cleaner in the day time!
Breakfast- full English everyday the same and only ever fried eggs. Few cereals, fruit-usually tinned pineapple & pears often ran out and limited pots of yogurt.
Continental breakfast also available
Evening meal-avoid!!
Very limited choice, we got to 3rd night and walked out as choice was chips,plain pasta, 1 veg, 1 fish 1 meat dish- looked fried all the time. Salads only consisted of bowls of lettuce,tomato, cucumber... Very limited and very poor quality.
We had stayed in a number of 3 star hotels before, including The Grand Teguise next door and had fantastic food and choice so it's not just us being fussy the evening buffet was shocking at The Galeon.
Overall, great holiday, great location, cleanish budget accommodation, bad food(fab restaurants locally that are excellent value for money) and friendly staff.
Would we stay again? Probably not but you get what you pay for and thus was a cheap, quick get away for some winter sun.

Hello dear Clairabell71,

We appreciatte your comments concerning the apartment: it help us to improve the quality of our complex and the service to our guests.

Concerning the comments about the apartment , before our guests have the apartment on the arrival day the maintenance staff checks that everything work right. Anyway we told the head of the maintenance man about your comments and sent him to check this apartment carefully again.
Concerning the buffet we offer everyday a wide variety of food for breakfast and diner . We told the chef about your comments and he told us he will check carefully the offers mostly for diner .

Greetings from all our staff!!

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...
