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... More

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... More

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.... More

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.
