Reviewed 12 December 2016

We were here with a toddler and a baby, and we got to enjoy our stay, the hotel facilities and the surroundings. This says a lot about the staff affability and their family oriented vocation. Still, the hotel keeps a discreet sofistication and stress-free environment suitable for couples and small groups, too. I would say most guests were Italians and...

The Gallia Palace is the best (but pricey) Hotel in Punta Ala. Located in a green area with trees. The free shuttle transfer to the beach takes less than five minutes. The private beach area with bar, restaurant, changing cabins, showers, is the big plus of the Hotel. But be aware, there is a fee of 50 Euro per day...

Our fourth or fifth year here, not sure exactly, one loses track of time in Punta Ala. Many of the negative reviews mention issues which, while technically correct, are missing the point: are some of the hotel's features dated? Yes. Is it easy to get to? No. Is everything the latest and greatest? Certainly not... On the other hand, if...

Boring looking hotel with an antiquated interior design. Nothing special apart maybe from a nice looking pool. Breakfast was terrible. Over the top hysterical waiters who could not get an order right. Avoid hot beverages like tea because the water always arrives luke warm. Staff here have a very loud manner of greeting guests which sounded so fake and annoying....

It was our 5th time at this hotel, and as good as ever. Beautiful rooms, caring managment, nice breakfast (especially if Luca is performing and Tony is in charge). Beach lunch is very good. A lot of space on the beach.

About a 10 minute walk to the beach, the property was a bit disappointing for our expectations of a Relais Chateaux.
