stayed here 28th june for 1 week, lovely small hotel, food good allways found something to eat, but sometimes it was luke warm but there is a microwave to use, they even had a b.b.q pool party in the week. rooms cleaned every day but dont have more then 3 beds in there or you wont be able to move, staff freindley, weekends there was stag?hen partys in and could be loud but never seen any trouble from them, just having a good time, but you would think banging a screaming at 5am in morning was a bit much, but in the week it was quite, pool was small but it was a pool and was glad to get in it from the heat, i would go back here again, meet some lovely and freindley people here, the hotel is set back off the main bars and not to far to walk down the beach, we got dropped off on main road as its a one way street so had a little walk with the suitcases, all in all cheep clean fun filled holliday, its not a hotel realy for children

Room Tip: try get a pool side room

We came to Gala Placidia on 28th June for a week. We went as a group of 7 women for my aunties birthday. As soon as we got to the hotel we were told our room wouldnt be ready for an hour. As there were 7 of us we needed a room for 4 and a room for 3 people. When the rooms were eventually ready we were given two rooms for 3 people. We went back to complain to the manager who then brought us an old dirty camp bed to put into one of the rooms. After complaining for at least an hour he reluctantly gave us the disabled room which slept four people.

The food was ok but always cold. The dining staff were rude and not often friendly. The snacks were same every day, only burgers hotdogs and cheese toasties. The drinks were of poor quality and were very watered down, Even though we paid for all inclusive we were told wed have to pay for any branded drinks such as Smirnoff and Bacardi etc.

The rooms were clean but the Pool wasnt, there was drinks left by the side of the Pool all day. There were people drunk round the pool all day, shouting swearing arguing, there were girls taking their tops off and guys pulling their pants down, I understand that people like to have a laugh on holiday but some of the behaviour should not have been allowed due to young children being there. There was no chance of sleep on a night as people were shouting and banging on our doors, loud music playing at all hours of the night, Though i cannot blame them as the management did nothing to stop this even though we complained, But if you dared leave a towel on your sunbed then they suddenly appeared telling you to remove it. I dont think its acceptable to have young families and stag/hen parties in the same hotel.

The entertainment was poor and the guy who was supposed to be providing entertainment to the kids was more interested in entertaining the girls on their hen parties. If you are wanting a family holiday i strongly advise you not to go to this hotel, If you are going to party then this is the hotel for you.

This hotel is mostly large groups of stags and hens, one of which i was apart of for 3 nights from 28th June, the hotel itself is in a brilliant location 10 mins walk from the square! the hotel is a 3 star and you get what you pay for the rooms were tidy, just a little dated and the drinks were lovely. food selection wasn't that great and we ended up eating out most days but it was worth the money just for the all inclusive option for drinks. the pool area was also tidy and looked after. i wouldnt personally recommend the hotel for families as it is full of groups!

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the pool and not the street
