Apartamentos Galeon Playa
Ranked #13 of 38 Hotels in Costa Teguise

Reviewed August 14, 2013

We just arrived from a 14 day stay in Lanzarote. Family holiday with 2 kids (4+6). Galeon Playa is good value for money. Clean, very friendly staff and located in a great area of Cost Teguise.
We first got an apartment next to the swimming pool (block 7...noisy and dark), but were able to change for a great apartment (block 10 !!!) in a quiet location with view to the sea. Didn't stay much at the hotel during the day, but swimming pool area seems to be nice and clean. Similarly went only once to the buffet restaurant, since great bars and restaurant around Costa Teguise and the surrounding fishing villages (make sure you visit Arietta !). So not sure, why one needs these idiotic "All Inclusive Clubs" that really destroy the local business !
Costa Teguise is nice with great beaches, but would get boring after a few days, so we really recommend renting a car to drive around in Lanzarote.

Room Tip: We would avoid block 7, except you want to be close to the swimming pool ! Good rooms in block 10 (w...

Stayed here 5th-12th August 2013. Hotel staff all very friendly and approachable. Asked for some advice on trips as was on holiday with my 78yr old grandmother and 6year old son who has adhd, reception staff gave lots of good advice and recommendations.

Hotel facilities are good pool & area great, cleaned daily. As other posters have mentioned, sunbeds are a nightmare, some nights they are all locked up so its a scrum at 10am to get a spot and a couple beds! Pool bar food lovely, cheap and the lady really friendly, has free wifi too!

We were half board, breakfast had good selection although always a que for the toaster, sausages still pink in the middle and bacon sat in lots of grease. Dinner was a let down, we are not a fussy family but the food was not great! Some things not cooked properly, off combinations-turkey with a creamy mint sauce :/. Lovely salad choice though!

The rooms were big and very clean. Comfy beds, well equipped kitchen, big balcony. Overall the hotel was great, would return but on a self catering basis, there are plenty places for eating.

Area round about plenty choice of bars/restaurants. Chinese buffet good value and tasty(there are 3 we went to the middle one). The Bulldog bar/restaurant served a really good sunday roast for 7.50€. La Hacienda mexican was absolutely beautiful-by far our best meal, a little pricey but service/food/atmosphere brilliant. Couple supermarkets and the usual gifty/touristy shops.

My friend and I stayed here from 10th to 24th June and I liked these apartments so much I have booked to go back with my daughter and her family in October. They are not luxurious but have everything you will need for a good holiday. Staff were more than helpful and very pleasant and were happy to answer questions and give directions and advice if needed. We had a lovely room with a sea view (we paid extra for this) The cleaners were in almost every day so it was spotlessly clean. We never went to the bar as there are so many nice restaurants and bars close by, Davina Italia in the Square was my favourite, lovely food and wine. The weather was lovely, overcast in morning but sunny in afternoon. Very windy at times though, in saying that when it was really hot we were glad of the breeze. Great wee cocktail bar right outside the apartments called Bar Vali, amazing cocktails and nice snacks. We had a great Sunday lunch at La Vida, just across the way on main street, highly recommend this place, live music at night. The Galeon restaurant was really good too. The beaches were lovely, nice clear sea. I would say if your looking for nice apartments in a great location then you can't go wrong with the Galeon Playa. I can't wait to go back.

Stayed here for one week start of July with my three children 16, 12, 10. The hotel was lovely and clean and the reception staff spoke good English so communication was not a problem for me as I don't speak Spanish.

Stayed half board, buffet style help yourself.. Very large selection of breakfast, but the evening meal was a little to be desired. The mash was like water and some chicken was undercooked (chicken nuggett). Watch the evening meal because the staff swamp you to order a drink which is charged for. I found the whole experience like being watched by the staff all the way through. They didn't take their eyes off you, i suppose in case you were eating too much???

The tv in the room: 20 euros to hire a remote for the week, but is it worth it? The only English channel you get is Sky's CBS Drama, but if you like Waterloo Road, Knots Landing, Judge Judy, Matlock and Dallas, you'll be in heaven haha.

The cleaners do not like to change the bottom bed sheets, so strip them yourself and give them to them and they will have to change them!

Internet is ok 15 euros for wifi for a week, not bad considering my 16 year old didn't leave the room with his laptop for the entire week almost!

Evening bar was ok. Erica was friendly enough, but always served faces which were well known before anyone else! She also poured way too big a measures so just be happy, but careful!

Restaurants nearby good. Chinese buffet good value 4.50 euros adult 3.00 child, but drinks are quite dear.

Galeon restaurant OMG try the tomato soup its lush.

A couple of karaoke bars nearby ok, but a bit too full on.

Overall nice hotel, better for families with little children. Enjoy!

Room Tip: IF you ask for a sea view when you book, you will most probably get one.

Just arrived back from 2 weeks at them Galeon Playa. Overall fantastic stay. We had a beautiful ground floor apartment as requested, however wish we had booked a 2 bedroomed as the sofa bed was really uncomfortable.
The hotel was great, staff were brilliant especially Erica in the bar.
The only thing which we found annoying was there were signs everywhere round the pool saying that sunbeds couldn't be reserved and any towels found unattended would be removed. This never happened. As there were several large family groups staying many of the sunbeds had towels on from 9am but not actually used until 3pm when they all got out of bed or back from a trip. Think this is a really selfish thing to do and typically British!!!!
Our apartment was by the smaller pool which most of the time was empty due to it being very windy.
It seems the management are doing some works to the apartments -painting being one of them as we came back on two days to find scraped off paint all over our balcony which had blown over from where the maintenance staff were painting the walls.
Overall brilliant stay.
Stay away from the Dolphin bar near the beach. It may look good and has loads of TV's but the prices for food are ridiculous.7euros 50 for chicken nuggets and chips for our 10 year old as the owner said the kids meals were for 3 year olds!!!!!

The hotel is maybe a little old but it is clean and spacious. The staff are super friendly and pleasant at all times. The pool area is great for young children although I personally am not a fan of real glasses by a pool where there are young children. The kids club was enjoyed by our little ones aged 4 and 2 but was a little late in the evening ie not starting til 9.30pm so we ended up with over tired little ones. The food was consistently very good and overall we enjoyed our stay although we won't be returning but not because of the hotel we just didn't like Lanzarote.

Great hotel, staff lovely, very clean, buffet breakfast and evening meal choice of everything was very good food. Our first time in Lanzarote lovely breeze every day over cast in morning but by lunch sun was out. Would recommend the island and this hotel most rooms have sea views we did not ask for sea view but got a beautiful room and view.
