“needs updating and quick”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Just returned from the gallon playa. We booked full board but the evening meal was horrendous , the breakfast was ok but you got the same food every day. If you have to go to the gallon just stay self catering cos the resorts boast plenty of restaurants begging you to eat there. The apartments were in a bad state of repair my husbands mattress was that bad he had to sleep in the lounge on the sofa I put up with mine but my back was in pieces. The drain smell from the bathroom was a strong egg smell which was not good. These apartments have great staff receptionists are excellent but they need money spending on them asap. They are in such an amazing location we had sun on our balcony all day it's such a shame they have been neglected

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

Arrived back home on the 19th January after spending one week at the Galeon. Room was basic, but everything worked as expected. Stayed in block 4 on the second floor and the noise of glass bottles smashing in the recycling center across the road was quite irritating, but we could have moved to a different room if we'd wanted to, but the room was cleaned 3 times during the week (bed's were not changed once I might add). Plenty of restaurants and bars close by, very close to the beach. Overall I would stay here again!

Room Tip: Avoid block 4 unless you like the sound of smashing bottles!

We booked here last minute on the same day we were due to arrive, availability and price was excellent.
We got 2 cots no problem and was told we could ask at the restaurant for high chairs, but we didn't bother as the location is so good you can have all your main meals out at some lovely restaurants everyday. Room was basic, but clean with a separate bedroom and a living room with a small kitchen, 2 hobs, a microwave and a fridge.
The staff are friendly and helpful. We would recommend this place as there is lots to do on site and in the surrounding area.

just returned from a week staying here. Apartment was clean and comfortable.

We were selfcatering. Supermarkets close by selling plentiful supplies to cook breakfast. We ate out in the evenings.

WiFi was excellent at 15 Euro for the week.

Reception staff very helpful and organised hire of a wheelchair.

Very close to the seafront, less than 100 yards.

all in all we thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Lanzarote, I'm sure we will be back.

Arrived home 11th feb after 1 week. Weather was a bit chilly, but for February it was great and definatley got a bit of a tan. The apartment was clean and spacious. Managed to confirm with the hotel before hand to get a sea view! The view from our room 260 was magnificent, looking right across the harbour and beach. Locality to shops and beach was excellent. Literally 1 min away. Lots of good bars and restuarants. Will be back hopefully!

Room Tip: Room 260 has great sea and beach views

This was our 3rd visit to the Galeon, 6th visit to Lanzarote, 5th visit to Costa Teguise.
Booked averything via the web and used 'Lowcostholidays' as was best prices for the Galeon. It's well worth a search around to compare prices, including direct with the Galeon itself.
Its not luxury but it is certainly comfortable+. We stayed self catering as there are plentiful options to eat out morning, afternoon and evening. We did not use the room cooking facilities but they looked modern enough. The beds were fairly comfortable, although would prefer the option of a double. We didn't use any of the 3 pools or the hotel bar. Disappointing that they want 15 euro's (PER DEVICE) for Wi-Fi when it is freely available so widely and locally.
The Galeon is very close to the small Punta Jablillo beach which is a lovely little spot.
Galeon is in a great location with friendly and attentive staff...within easy reach of everything.
Room 301 is above the shops with a nice view....which is exactly what we asked for....these particular rooms are not serviced by a lift. Only a pain when arriving and leaving due to the luggage.
I find the airport expensive so would recommed buying your fragrance/cigarettes/etc in resort. I also take Sterling and exchange in resort as the rates are better than the UK.
Having written this I feel like going again already. In fact, I might just go and book it now!
