“Simply fantastic!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2005

Dear friends,

I heve been at Gallia Palace hotel both in June and July 2005. I spent there some wonderful days in an atmosphere of 'good quality', peace and tranquillity.
The hotel, from which you have a fine view on the bay, has a very simple structure. It's a three floors buiding, a clear example of the architecture of the sixties with large halls, wide glass-doors and windows, elegant living-rooms.
The bed-rooms are furnished in a very good taste, are clean and confortable.
The staff (most of them are young) is very polite and professional, always ready to satisfy all your needs or necessities.
The restaurant is 'at the top': situated in a 'veranda' near the garden, you can eat each kind of Italian dishes prepared with the best Italian products such as olive-oil, and wines.
The hotel has a private beach: it's wide, with all comforts; you can practice all aquatic sport, including rowing-boats and sailing-boats.On the beach there is also a nice pagoda with a bar and a restaurant.
The hotel is plunged in the nature, surrounded by hills and fields of sunflowers where you can have pleasant walks, riding a mountain-bike or playing 'golf'; if you like, there is also a POLO field.
Gallia Palace Hotel has been for me also the starting-point to discover Tuscany: in fact, in the neighbourhood of Punta Ala you can visit medieval towns rich of monuments and art, archaeological sites, countries with cypresses, olive-trees and vines.
Few words for the prices of the hotel which I consider honest and completely in keeping with the services.
For what I described above, it was for me a real unforgetable holiday.

I stayed at the Gallia Palace for a weekend in September 2005. We had a wonderful time. Our room was very large, clean and full of light. It was very tidy and beautifully placed, with a wonderful view on the Gulf.
The food was simply great, the staff is very kind and helpful. The beauty center was amazing, I had a wonderful massage.

The hotel has access to a private beach a short walk. The beach is wonderful, with a beautiful wooden pagoda, where you can have BBQ or drinks on the seaside. You can also have a ride on a sailing boat.

Overall, it is one of the best places we have ever been. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing, and it's a great place to enjoy the beautiful things in life.
Definitely worth the price!
