I've been staying at the Costa Galana many times.
Excellent.

Room Tip: the deluxe suites at the corners.

Además, un gimnasio con máquinas de última generación, como complemento al perfecto servicio en todo sentido. Camisas con planchado express al momento y todo en la habitación a la orden. La TV con la calidad de un cinco estrellas y equipo de sonido para darle música de CD's de preferencia personal. Desde allí salís a la izquierda al centro y a la derecha, a corta distancia de la zona del puerto con su comida marina fantástica. Recomendable ***** !!!!

This was a short trip for an adult with a child. The hotel is not even close to a 4 stars one for US standards. The one positive comment: the gentleman at the Spa was very diligent in taking my blood pressure when I asked the front desk for a place to do so, and did not accept a tip. He was beyond attentive. But for the hotel in general, quite a few negatives: The mattress in our room was extremely uncomfortable. I complained, they promised to change it but nothing was done during our stay. They did change our pillows when asked, though. We had room service for dinner each night. The food was plain ordinary and one night we even had a half bitten bread in our basket! We requested to be awaken the morning we had to fly back and they completely forgot, which made for a very rushed morning for us. In general, the rooms and the service were not up to a 5 stars hotel standards. Maybe in Mar de Plata, but not internationally, not even close!

I stayed here for four nights in early October 2011 which is near end of the winter in Argentina. The hotel is directly across from the Grand Playa which didn't afford much swimming this time of year. The room was nicely appointed and very comfortable. But, the windows leaked/rattled in the wind and the upholstery on chairs and curtains were worn which is a bit disappointing given the hotel rating. I really cannot complain about the place and it did seem to be one of the best places around.

Room Tip: The ocean side has a fantastic view but is noisy when the city youth turn the roads out front into a...

The Costa Galana is one of the three true 5 star options in town, and of the non-chain hotels is probably the best and most traditional. The hotel offers all the services required for a hotel of this class, and performs quite well in all fundamental aspects. The top floor rooms with Ocean views offer one of the best views of the city, and the location is very nice - far away from the Central Bristol Beaches that are to be avoided.

Location of this hotel is excellent and rooms are ok. But if you expect international five stars standard of hotels you will be disappointed. What really lets Costa Galan down is the service, or rather the lack thereof. The hotel is so well known and well regarded in Argentina that they will always be full anyway. If you are not Argentine and don't care about having stayed where Mirtha Legrand does her lunches in the summers, there just must be better options for less.
