Reviewed July 30, 2013

We recently returned to The Galeon (Pavilion) and enjoyed our stay just as much as in previous visits. The hotel is so relaxed and friendly. The hotel now also offers an evening buffet menu which although we only tried once, was really good value. I would still recommend the Galeon to anyone visiting Sitges and hope to return again in a couple of years.

We stayed for 6 nights at the Hotel Galeon Our room was fairly small but very clean and the beds were comfortable.The air conditioning is a real bonus as the weather was very hot.Our room was at the front of the hotel which could be noisy.We loved the breakfast,which is served until 12 noon, giving us time for quick dip in the sea beforehand..The hotel gives out beach towels and parasols on payment of a refundable deposit.This is such a boon as it saves the extra weight of towels in your luggage.The welcome drink at the sister hotel in the terrace bar was a lovely touch.Also the afternoon tea and pastries.The pool and pool area are exceptionally clean and a lovely place to sit out.Lastly but not least, the staff are kind and charming.

Room Tip: It is nice to be above the hub of the shopping area but it can get a bit noisy so I would request a...

Third visit here (which says something!)
Consistent with most other reviewers, the excellent points of the hotel include the reception and housekeeping - in terms of customer service and general high standard both are superb.
On this occasion, I was located in a room in the Pavilion - I far prefer this area of the hotel as it tends to be quieter than the main hotel and the rooms slightly bigger. I'd always choose to stay here were the option available (it wasn't when booking through Travel Republic).
The beds are very comfortable and the tea-making facilities in my room were very welcome (they're not in all rooms).
Gripes include not having visibility of what type of room you're going to get until you open the door (small/medium/large bedroom; type of bathroom (bath/shower/both); balcony); and the quality of the (albeit optional) buffet dinner service was variable. There was a LOT of pork in gravy. Although having spoken to a few people that have holidayed in Spain this year - this seems strangely consistent with their experiences - including that of my parents in a 5* place!
Recommend visiting the Platjadour roof-top bar at some point during your stay (sister hotel) the views are great.
One final point - I really liked the coffee!
Definitely continue to recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back are quieter as are those in the Pavilion.

This really is more than a three star hotel. This is the third time I have stayed here and it gets better every time. The manager really cares about what you think about his hotel and the staff acts incredibly quickly if you want them to deal with anything. On a personal note, many thanks to the staff for organising the champagne and flowers for my partner's birthday. We also had an amazing room with the biggest bed I have ever seen.
Breakfasts, as always, are the best in Spain, there really is everything you could possibly want. My friends even commented that the peaches were the juiciest and most fresh they had ever tasted.
I would only ever stay at this hotel when I visit this part of the world.
If I had one small point it is really about the age old problem about people putting their towels on sun loungers so early in the morning and not returning for hours. It happens everywhere but the Galeon has such a small pool that clients should really be advised that they can't do this. Apart from that, many thanks, particularly to the manager for his friendly welcome and his assistance

I enjoyed a great three night stay at Hotel Galeon. We had made two separate bookings through a booking website in order to add an additional night to our stay, and on arrival this complication was easily dealt with by efficient and welcoming reception staff who allowed us to stay in the same room for all of the nights. We were also given vouchers for a free glass of Cava at their sister hotel which was a nice extra. Our room was in the annex, it was very comfortable, the bed was a great size and the shower was fantastic. We also loved the rooftop jacuzzi. The breakfast is amazing and served until 12, the range of food is unbelievable and the breakfast staff were very friendly. The housekeeping service is great, as one day we didn't leave our room until very close to the end of the cleaning shift but still returned to a lovely clean room which was greatly appreciated. The hotel is in a great location and is really good value for money, I would highly recommend Hotel Galeon and want to go back!

The Hotel Galeon is very well located in Sitges. Less than 5 minutes walk from the train station and airport bus and 10 minutes to the beach. While it's in the centre of the town, the street is quiet at night. The staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel, while not very modern, was always clean. The pool area was better than expected. The sun loungers were comfortable and the trees provided shade if necessary. The hair dryer in our room didn't work and was replaced the next day. The highlight was most definitely the breakfast and the afternoon tea was a nice touch. Well done!

My first visit here but with friends that have stayed before. It's in the heart of the town a short walk from the train station.The greeting was very welcoming, I was allocated a room in the annex which is in the next street at the back. Room was small but very quiet and cool. Had everything I needed as I wasn't planning to spend much time in there. All public areas are air conditioned (as well as the bedrooms) which was a blessing. The bar was soleless and its seating area faced onto a lower ground level so wasn't a nice place to sit. Breakfast was excellent and went on until midday which was great as it was difficult to get an early night due to great selection of late bars! Didn't get a chance to try evening meal but it sounded good value at €9.50. Pool was small but very relaxing and quite shadey if the heat of the beach is a bit too much. The terrace does fill up quite quickly as the numbers are limited to 20 people. Complimentary afternoon tea with some cakes was a nice touch. All in all an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: The back of the annex was very quiet considering town centre location.
