Although the beach is 400yards from the hotel,I enjoyed the peace of this architecturally pleasing hotel.The staff are discreetly helpful,it is immaculately clean,and I enjoyed the pieces of art throughout. The decor is excellent. The food was delicious and prettily served.The only 'fault' was there was too much! I really enjoyed my stay.

We stayed at this hotel with Saga on an all inclusive basis. Spotlessly clean hotel and rooms, couldn't fault it. Staff attentive and very friendly. Food was good but basic, could have been a little more choice. I tend to agree with your other reviewers that the location is not good unless you like walking. It takes about fifteen minutes...

Very impressed with professionalism of everyone we met. Friendly reception, pleasant lobby. Good well furnished bedroom. Request for extra pillows promptly dealt with. Immaculately clean bath and bed rooms. Dinning room and food very good. Helpful and friendly waiters.

I've been in this hotel many years ago and that's why I wanted to come back. They still have the same good service. The breakfastis not the best thing of them. The restaurante à carte is expensive. The pool is small and you need to booked your time as soon as possible otherwise you run the risk of having no... More

We stayed in the Galatea for 4 days and everything was nice. Great hotel.The only thing it is somehow far from the city center but otherwise has all the amenities. The outdoor terrace with a drink relaxing pool is amazing. Spacious and clean. The Breakfast buffet is pretty good.

We spent a couple of weekends at this hotel which is not in Sanxenxo, as advertised but on the road between Portonovo and Sanxenxo and were very satisfied. Though it is not a luxury hotel, it provides enough comfort for a weekend stay by the beach. It is located opposite Paxariñas beach and has a small spa with jacuzzi and... More
