Also she made a breakfast basket since we had to take the early boat which leaves way before breakfast time, The... More

I couldn't fault El Galeon - it seemed to have everything necessary for the self-catering holiday maker. The reception desk and foyer immediately create a favourable impression. The spacious rooms are very well appointed with solid furniture, a well-equipped kitchen, more than adequate storage space and a balcony with space for at least two. The underground car park and free... More

Situated a short walk from the ferry port, this aparthotel at about 57€ per night was excellent. It was smart and very clean. The kitchen area was very good. Breakfast at 5€ pp was very good too. There is a sunroof if the weather is kind. The east gets less sun than the west.

We enjoyed our 6 night stay at this Aparthotel, on a bed a breakfast basis. The apartment was spotlessly clean, very spacious, and with a balcony.We felt that the value was good at 399 Euros for 6 nights .Free Wi-Fi, and free underground parking (you need a smallish car to get into the parking area!) was provided. As with everything,... More

We spent 6 nights at El Galeon on a recent walking holiday to La Palma and were very happy. It does mean climbing a hill as the hotel overlooks the port - but this is La Palma !!!. Location is great, just down the hill to the Central Bus station and the main shopping area. Apartment was very spacious with... More

We spent a night here as we had to catch an early ferry from Santa Cruz to Tenerife in the morning. The apartments are enormous and well equipped and had plenty of space for our family. The basement parking is very convenient in a town where parking is at a premium and you can get the lift straight from the... More

We asked for a sea view on our booking form, but were given an apartment at the back, facing the steep hill. I have the impression that (German) tour operators book the best rooms en masse. On the other hand, our spacious apartment had two large bedrooms although we only booked one - oh well. The apartments are well equipped:... More

We booked here for a 3 night stay for my husbands birthday. When we arrived, on a Sunday, the reception was closed with a telephone number for you to call, within 5 mins someone arrived to show us to our room.
