“Lovely clean and comfy apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

My Partner & I have just returned from 10 nights at The Galeon Playa. I was a little concerned before we went when I read the negative reviews this hotel had received in the past but I should not have worried. The apartment was spacious and spotlessly clean. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The pools and poolside looked lovely though we did not use them ourselves. This apartment complex is in an excellent location close to the beach and there are lots of bars and restaurants close by. I would definitely recommend you give this a go.

This hotel is in the great place of Costa Teguise, in the quiet part of center, nearby the see and quiet small sandy beach. The rooms are simple but clean and fully equipped. The walls are thin, you´ll hear every noise from neighboring or upper room. The staff is helpfull and nice. The pools are very cold, however one of them is "heated." What is really poor is the food - we had a half pension. The breakfast is every day the same, something like the english breakfast but prepared by very cheap and poor quality foodstuffs. The really shamy is the dinner where most of dishes are really inedible. Fortunately there are many good restaurants in the surroundings so we forgot our half-pension, mourned money for it and enjoy the dinner outside. In conclusion: Galeon Playa is the hotel with the good rate for good services, but forget the eating there.

Just returned last night after a lovely week. The Galeon is in a good location and the apartment was clean and had everything we needed. We had Room 151 in Block 8, this was on the ground floor and it was great to have our own terrace so we could have our sunbeds either on our own private section, or sit outside our little wall if it got too hot in our "garden", with the convenience of being able to nip in for a drink or bathroom. Weather was ok while we were there, a chilly wind but lots of sunshine, and our terrace was just out of the wind, which was great for the morning and early afternoon until the sun moved around and we were in the shade from about 3 o'clock.
No grumbles whatsoever with location; HiperDino supermarket right outside and a cheaper Spar just up the road. Lots of bars on the "strip" along the main road near the apartments and just 5 minutes walk to "the square". The bars closer to The Galeon were great for a nice afternoon drink in the sun, just out of the wind, people-watching, and watching the sun go down.
We had a car for a couple of days pre-booked before we arrived from Cabrera Medina who have an office just near The Galeon, but there are so many car hire places within a few minutes walk, we'd probably shop around a bit more next time.
The Galeon has wi-fi which you can pay for in your room but we just used it free in reception and in various bars around the area. We didn't pay for the TV remote because you can work the TV "manually" anyway, and the only British channels are Sky News, CNN, BBC World and Nickelodeon. There is a small lounge in reception which has magazines/books to swap if you get bored.
On the whole, we were very pleased with The Galeon and would definitely stay again BUT our big grumble was on our last day; we wanted to keep our room for an extra few hours and would have been happy to pay the 30euros for this but they insisted they had no rooms available, even though it seemed obvious to us they were not busy at all, the complex was most definitely NOT full! So, grudgingly, we decided to make the best of our last afternoon, go for a meal and drink, and then return for a quick shower in the changing rooms before our flight. The showers were FREEZING! Okay, so there are towels and toiletries there (which I assume people have left behind) but surely it wouldn't be too much to ask for a hot shower before you go home?!
I would have given this place 5 stars for everything but the disappointment of our last day shaved the "service" rating down to a 4, although this is no reflection on the staff themselves, everyone was friendly and helpful for the whole week.

We appreciatte a lot your great comments about our complex!

It is very rewarding to know that you enjoyed your holidays in our complex!!!

We regret that you couldn´t have a late check out the last day of your stay but we were full and it was impossible for us. Many customers tell that the complex doesn´t seem to be full but it is!

We spent one week in the Galeon Playa from the 9th-16th of February and we plan on doing the same again next February! We stayed as a family of 6, aged from 6-55, and not one of us had any complaints.
LOCATION-amazing location! Supermarket right across the road, cocktail bar right outside the hotel on the corner and a steak house across the road. As well as that it's a couple of minutes walk to the pubs and restaurants. There's a small beach across the road and the bigger beach five mins round the corner!
ROOMS-The rooms are basic! However, there's everything u need for self catering apartments and they are kept clean by the friendly maids. For the price we paid they were better than expected!
STAFF-staff were top class, can easily say they were the friendliest hotel staff I've met. Even the gardeners and cleaning staff were always polite and friendly! Reception staff were great, on our first night there was a mix up with the booking and they put 6 of us in a 2 bed apart which was big enough. The next day got us another 2 bed apart next door so we had 8 beds and 2 sofa beds for the six of us and also got free safe hire for "inconvenience" even though there was none caused.
Entertainment girl was great, brilliant with children and got audience to participate,very friendly girl and great at her job.
ERICA-Erica the bar maid is the life and soul of the Galeon! She ran the bar herself and the service was brilliant. She is hilarious and makes u want to go into the Atlantic Bar. My 6 year old daughter loved her and wants to go back just to see her. I don't think the place would be the same without her!
INSIDE HOTEL-There's wifi available or u can use the computers in the reception. There's 2 small children's pools and 2 bigger pools, one of which is heated, it was nice weather when we went and the heated pool was fine! Theres a children's play park and a pool side bar (which is very reasonably priced). There's also lots of daytime activities which the entertainment staff put on.

Will definitely be coming back again next year, if not sooner, my full family loved the place. My daughter doesn't normally like entertainment venues but used to count down the hours till it was time to go see crazy crazy (aka Erica!) Can't wait for our next visit!

The rooms are very basic and don't have an oven for self catering. The location is great and eating and drinking out in town centre is cheap and good. The pool is freezing. The staff are very helpful and pleasant. The bar in the hotel is very noisy and the barman will serve you if he has time! I would recommend this hotel for the price. It is ok for children but not for couples needing peace and quiet. The area where it is has everything for a great holiday and is relatively quiet. It is a short walk for the beach, shops and bars.

Room Tip: Some rooms have great views of the sea. Our room overlooked the corner where the bins are emptied 7...

Visited here for 3 weeks with friends and family. Location is excellent and all staff are friendly and helpful. This is budget accommodation so if you are looking for the Hilton you are in the wrong place, however this is reflected in the price. I felt very happy and relaxed here and enjoyed eating out and walking nearby. Thanks to the wonderful staff for a lovely holiday.

i have stayed at this hotel five times purley for the reason that it is just accross the road from the beach. The rooms are always spacious with a kitchen and balcony. Staff are always freindly and encouraging in activities and trips. Just behing the hotel is great resturants, bars and shops and is only 20 minuites away from the airport in a cab. Reccomended, and will be back this summer!!
