Had a weeks stay at Galeon Playa basic 3star plus clean, friendly good place to stay. Would I return? Yes I would. Apartment did not have airconditioning which would have been nice. I believe you had to pay for a fan at reception, which we decided against. Hair dryers can be rented from reception too. Had wonderful 2 balconies one from bedroom and another from lounge. Balcony from bedroom housed the free clothes horse, and the lounge balcony had free plastic circular table and 4 chairs. There was a toaster, hob, kettle (took forever to boil which was amusing), microwave, fridge freezer (kitchenette). Great even though we were half board. Rectangular dining table with 4 wooden chairs. Kids had a L shaped sofa bed. adults twin bed which were firm. TV on unit but no remote as Euro20 deposit, not necessary as buttons down side and didn't watch any t.v. Wifi at reception Euro6.
Cleaners are stated to come 4 times a week.
Brilliant location as right on sea front, we had a sea view overlooking kids playground and pools. 4 pools, 1 salt water and heated and 1.75m deep, other pool circular heated 1.4m deep, other pools not heated very very cold were 1.4m deep, and other paddling pool 0.4m deep with 2 slides for little ones. Saw the pool cleaner most evenings. Where our apartment was situated got noisy if trying to sleep before 11pm. kids club ran in 2 sessions am and pm. There is also a baby galy(club) for up to 3yrs old.
The apartments so near to a choice of beaches. Jabillos to the right and rocky, further to right down very good path which is suitable for wheelchairs and bikes is Bastian playa, it has darker golden sands, worth the walk, 2 playgrounds on the way, but little shade at playgrounds. Cucharas to the left and golden sands, lots of sunbed and busier, seafront shops and bars, further round that beachcontinue to walk along seafront is, charcos beach, it is much quieter. Lots of windsurfers as good waves.
Opposite apartments is Hyperdino supermarket, handy to bring back heavy bottles of water, we bought two 5litres for our 1 week stay and refilled smaller plastic bottles for our beach trips. Down souvenier shops round to sharp right out of apartments there are 2 more playgrounds, so while one of you browse the other can look after children in playground.
Apartment reception can organise various day trips at reduced 5% off trips. Our trip to Teguise market for 3 adults (11 and over) and1 child cost Euro14. Choose a time from 08:25am, 09:30am, 10:30am for pick up by coach, pick up is from Grand Teguise hotel opposite and it drops you off at market and lets you have 3 hours there, and return back to Grand Teguise hotel opposite. Play ground in centre of Teguise market so take it in turns to keep little kids entertained. Public toilets towards steps not to far from playground.
Dinner is from 7pm, May i suggest earlier at 6:30pm for young families. Food at restaurant adequate for vegetarians, salad bar, diff sauces, 2 mains were vegetarian, such as rice and veg or pasta and veg. There is always fries/chips. cheese nuts and biscuits. Always a diff type of soup, sometimes is suitable for vegetarians. Separate kids food buffet, with sweeties, would recommend that veg/salad should be in kids buffet to encourage children to choose healthy options. Can only suggest sweets are only brought out by chef as a treat if kids have eaten their greens. Chef was around giving out lollipops as children left some days. Nice that the restaurant overlooks sea, large windows to watch waves. Door at restaurant opens directly out to seafront so can take a stroll after a meal which was lovely.
Entertainment is from 9pm, may i suggest 8pm for young families? Entertainment repetitive but kids loved it at Atlantic bar. Happy hour served 2 pints of Amstel for price of 1 which was Euro3. 3 Pool tables, 1 inside atlantic bar, 1 outside, 1 opposite reception. Euro1 per play.
