I stayed at the Gala Hotel from Jan. 8 – 15, 2017. The hotel is across the street from the Atlantic Ocean. I found the hotel clean, the rooms modern and comfortable with a coat of fresh paint. I was a single traveler from the USA, however this hotel accommodates people of all backgrounds: solo travelers, couples and families as...

This is our second visit to the Gala, and this time we opted for a Club Alexandre room. A lot better than the one we had last year. So many people on Tripadvisor have mentioned the staff rudeness. We have not experienced any of that. One problem could be in the restaurant which is completely understaffed and the poor people...

Stayed here for a week from January 8th. The hotel is not as bad as some people make out. Hotel is spotless, rooms large and spacious, maid service exceptional, plenty shower gels and shampoo left in bathroom not that we used them we brought our own as you do, restaurant staff didn't really talk probably because they were so busy,...

The Hotel was clean. Well appointed for things to go and look at and do . Evening entertainment was pretty good too. The meals were the only trouble we had. Everything, apart from an omelette or fried egg with tour breakfast, was either tepid or stone cold. Not one hot meal was HOT!!! We also had to pay for every...

Stayed for a week in December at the Hotel Gala with my daughter. We had a lovely modern and contemporary twin room on the top floor - which was quiet despite the central location and the hotel being busy. Our room was cleaned every day with no shortage of clean linen and towels. The hotel has a great pool area...

The hotel appearance and cleanliness are the only reason we have given 1 star. The reception staff on arrival chatted amongst themselves, rather than attending to us with a happy welcome, as you would expect from any hotel when checking in. The room was nice, very clean and as other reviews have mentioned, room service was daily. The food was...
