The Gala Hotel is just a two-minute stroll to a sandy beach, and five minutes’ walk from restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
The Gala Hotel is in a really central location, a stone’s throw from the beach and five minutes’ walk to the main nightlife strip.
When you’re staying put, there’s something for the whole family, from the toddler-friendly splash park to the relaxing spa.

Terrible Its a 3 star hotel
I was one week in gala hotel , its not 4 stars hotel , i had bad memorise from services in this hotel, i booked all inclusive but the reception said to me if you want to use refrigerator must to pay 25 euro, thats joke , i traveld a lot all around the word mallroca , ibiza ,las palmas ,salou . Barcellona just in spain , but i have never seen that the refrigarator be lock . If you want use it you must pay extra mony in allinclusive or BB service , wifi is not free , you can used just in spacial places . The restaurant was full of nois , you want to be relax and calm palce to eat and drink , the possetive point that beackfast , it was not perfect but not bad . The number of sttaf getting service in this hotel is less than you feel good , I m not so happy , hope that the boss of this hotel think about lots of problem to be geting better service who wants to enjoy tenerifa .

Nice enough hotel
Myself and my boyfriend enjoyed a stay here for 10 nights running from 30th June-10th July. We were checked in smoothly and given our room key as well as cards which you can use in exchange to rent a mattress and towels for by the pool at a cost of €1.90 per day (honestly would not bother as the beds are comfortable enough by throwing a beach towel over them). The lady on reception gave us a little information pack explaining all the floors and what's on them e.c.t. Pool, reception & restaurant. Also the fridge in your room is €5 but this is just a deposit and you get it back when checking out. Our room was 121 and faced the sister hotel Troya, the room was spacious and very clean but was not one of the modern rooms that had been renovated. The balcony was very large and even has a pull out wrack where you can leave your clothes out to dry which we thought was a nice touch. At first the air conditioning didn't seem powerful at all as our room felt stuffy however after a day of leaving it on the room became very cool. The food at the hotel I would say is one of the bad points, we stayed half board and the breakfast every morning was the same thing, the sausages are basically hotdogs however on some days were white and looked uncooked. We had our evening meal about 3 times in the hotel and decided to eat out the rest of the holiday because the food was just repetitive but you'll be fine if you like eating rice, fries and fish everyday. For a 4* hotel I was expecting more choice and a range of themed nights but there was no menu put up by the restaurant to show what they were serving. Another dim point is the prices of the drinks are ridiculous! All your drinks are charged to your room card and you can pay it off as you check out, although we did ours a few days before so you might be able to do it at any time. Being half board the only drinks included was those with breakfast, so when your around the pool in sunny weather your going to be drinking a lot. Well for a small bottle of water you will be charged €2.30 when the same bottle is in the shop opposite for €0.50! Coke again is around €2 and is served in those little plastic party cups, fair enough if you are all inclusive but when your paying for them it's not acceptable. I would advise you to stock up on drinks from the shop and save a hell of a lot of money! The nightly entertainment was something we didn't take part in as it was mainly for kids, we did look at the board each night to see what was on but I have to be honest it did favour Eastern European guests rather than the British, in fact the whole hotel seemed to and brits were a minority. The location of the hotel is the reason we booked Gala and we were not dissatisfied, we were close to the beach, shops, bars and restaurants. One thing I would say is you are at the beginning of the strip so some of the rooms can be noisy as they are right facing it and it's not ideal with children. It's around a 5min taxi or a 25/30min walk from the safari shopping centre and a taxi costs €5/6. You will be bombarded with promotion workers on the strip and the place is absolutely teeming with lucky, lucky men but they do leave you alone when you say no. The majority of the staff working at the hotel are very pleasant and kind, always greet you with hola especially the cleaners. Some of them can seem like they hate their jobs but mostly they are nice people. Probably the best points for us were the location and how clean the hotel was, even the very last detail of folding the toilet roll into a point is taken into consideration. We would come here again but we would definitely go self-catering next time as the food in the hotel was below average. All in all a nice enough hotel. More
Stayed I the gala hotel for 11days I jue 2017.Was not sure what too expect after reading the reviews,but on arrival was pleasantly surprised,the reception staff were very helpful and pleasant.On entering or room which was an Alexander room I was surprised it was nice and clean and airy .the Decor was contemporary and not to small.the view from the balcony was lovely and we had a sea view as stated.The plus for me was that u did not ave to get up a silly o clock to put ur towels down, you could go down for breakfast then get a choice of sunbeds even then only thing we did not like was paying for ur drink with ur room card and then settle ur bill at the end of ur holiday we would rather pay as u go.Overall I would rate the hotel to a high standard not hesitate to return and would recommend it to friends and family,More
Excellent stay at Hotel Gala
Just thought i owed it to the Hotel to leave a review thats actually genuine as booking this for me my partner and 2 boys age 6 and 2 i was abit sceptical about what it was going to be like after reading so many reviews. Firstly, we stayed in room number 24 the hotel is beautiful and clean, rooms are very spacious and big, cleaned everyday with fresh towels. The cleaners are lovely always say Hola and always did something cute with the boys goodnight teddys..... The rooms have fridges, kettle, hair dryer, tv and safe (safe and fridge you have to pay for at reception at the beginning of your stay, you get the deposit for the fridge back which is €5) The restaurant food was above average, it was always hot, somethong different everyday, there was always bacon, eggs, scrambled eggs and beans at breakfast time... toast, croissants, cereal.... DINNER- there was always pizza, rice and chips but along side that always a few different dishes to choose from which me and my family always found something to eat. EVENING MEAL - Never had a problem finding something to eat, they had different things on every night from chinese night to meatballs, joints of meat, pancakes with different fillings, curries.... we never went hungry, they do however cook a lot of fish but this didnt bother us as we are willing to try new things and it was all very nice!! Pool area was lovely, could always get sunbeds Howver i was up at like 8am everyday with my little boys.. Staff- Didnt find one to not be polite... They were always very helpful so cannot understand the reviews from some people about rudeness as this wasnt the case for us!! The hotel is in a fab location, near lots of bars and restaurants, and easy access to siam shopping center, costa adeja & los c. Even though the strip is right at the bottom of the street this did not bother us we just didnt go down there where it was too rowdy on a night, it wasnt hard to find other bars such as travellers rest, leonardos, yates... which cater for kids with bouncy castle and play area etc. We was always back at the hotel by 12am and the noise really wasnt an issue. I cant comment on the entertainment as we never stayed in for it but there was different shows on every night from parrot shows to dancers to magic shows with mini disco for kids at 8pm. Overall fab hotel and fab stay and we are looking to book again next year. More
