A lovely hotel. The food was great, a really good selection at all meal times. We got upgraded from HB to all inclusive as our first night has to be spent in their sister hotel, an equally great hotel. General service, ie outside bar, restaurant plate clearing, poolside clearing was a little slow but only at at times but all staff were very polite and friendly and happy to assist. Paying for the sun lounger mattresses each day we felt was a bit of a rip off, but if you've stayed before you don't have to pay, we paid anyway, our first time here and as we felt we got our money's worth having been upgraded for free. The hotel itself was very clean, the localty excellent... right in the middle of the night life, but you can easily take it or leave it. The designer shops and more classy area for eating out was a pleasant 10 minute walk away (or 3-4 euros in a taxi) and very tidy, well kept and plenty to choose from. Our room was on the Linekers side of the hotel (not pool side which would have been great and a charge incurred, but we didn't stay in the room that much) and we didn't hear a thing with the door shut during the night. The hotel evening entertainment was pretty good for families and the older people but we stayed for the entertainment then popped across the road for a few drinks and a some lively music. We didn't use wifi but apparently you have to pay for it.... not sure if this is right for a 4* but I think most do charge anyway.... you can use internet cafe's dotted around which are really cheap. If you want proper top level 4* service I'd said go to the Iberostar Bouganville in Adeje (though addressed in Americas)you pay good prices for that but in my experience - top level ever! I was very happy with the Gala and would definitely go back. The beach was a 5 minute walk but we prefer the pool which had a raised terrace away from the pool which suited us as we wanted peace and quiet. The tv in the room had very limiting channels but who watches tv on holiday!!! We had our ipod with little speakers for the limited time we were in the room so tv wasn't essential. The glass panel bathroom door was a little odd but it was frosted at the right level, it wasn't like a normal shutting door so not sound proof but for my mate and myself this wasn't a problem but I could see why others might find it a little odd... Overall I would definitely recommend going there but noting the above comments.....
