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.

Will look to return
This was our first winter holiday and ww were suprised how busy the resort was, also having left the UK at minus 3 the warm climate of 24/25 degrees was more than welcome.The first impression of the Hotel was how clean the reception was and the booking in procedure was so quick and easy.Our room was overlooking the garden which was luckily on the quiet side of the hotel, there was plenty of storage and the bathroom was spotless. After a quick shower we had a drink at the bar before dinner, on entering the restaurant you are given a glass of Prosecco bfore being shown to your table. All meals are Buffet and there was a selection to suit all tastes, and because the food isn't put out in massive dishes all the menu is regular replenished. I went to the pool most mornings at 9 - 9.30 and always found many free/empty sun beds for the whole week of our stay and because the majority of the guests were 50+ the pool scene was very relaxed and quiet. The evening entertainment was mainly from low key singers and apart from ABBA ANGELS who were outstanding. The Hotel is in a prime situation for the beach, the night clubs or just a quiet walk along the prom. cant wait till next year.More
Really Nice Hotel
Really Nice Hotel, spotlessly clean and well maintained. First impression on checking in was great. Snr Surin (?) on reception was really welcoming and friendly. Check in was quick and easy. Room accessed via an Atrium which was really nice too. Had a Club Alexandre room and this was really nice, modern and clean. Balcony overlooking pool area and with a view of the sea. Only downfall was the balcony did not get any sun, but at this time of the year the sun only goes round so far and not enough to reach this part of the hotel. Bathroom was really clean and spacious. Room had robes and slippers, safe (which had to be paid for),fridge (nothing in it), tea and coffee supplied but no kettle. The pillows were nice and soft but the beds were really hard. Overall rating for the room would be a 9. The pool area was fabulous. Plenty of sun beds and you can get hotel towels to use by the pool. Plenty of sunbeds around the pool. There was also a veranda area away from the pool with covered seating area, sunbeds and larger double sunbeds. Overall rating for the pool area would also be a 10. The pool bar area was also really nice, with plenty of seating. However, had a bit of a wait to be served, as only one member of staff, would presume in high season would be better staffed. The restaurant was a bit of a free for all. We had bed and breakfast and had expected, as has been the case in other hotels we have visited, that there would be a restaurant manager that would locate a table for you, but this is not the case, you had to walk around and find a seat yourself. Breakfast was OK selection of continental and "hot". But if you like to eat towards the end of the breakfast serving time less selection to choose from. There was evening entertainment which was OK. Range of entertainment but the compere only spoke in Spanish, German and Italian, so no idea really what was going on. Not tailored to British speaking guests. The hotel clientele seemed to be mostly German, Italian and French. we only met one other British couple. On speaking to a taxi driver, we were advised this is usual for this hotel to serve these nationalities. The Troya beach is literally 5 mins down the road, and is not golden sands, but a dark coloured sand, however, as we are not beach lovers, we did not use it. The hotel is opposite Linekers which is a famous nightclub, but we did not hear any noise. Not sure in main season how noisy the area would be. Veronicas is also at bottom of road, with an array of nightclubs and bars, again probably very noisy in high season. Good selection of bars and restaurants nearby for food and drinks. A visit to the safari centre is a must, it is full of shops, bars and fabulous restaurants. On review, we felt we should have possibly stayed nearer this area as it suited us better, given we are not beach lovers. The spa area at the hotel was amazing, has to be one of the best we have visited. Being in a Club Alexandre room this was free of charge. Usual price would be 15 euro per person per visit. However, review how much you would use it and if the increase in room charge to pay for Club Alexandre would be economic. Whilst the spa was fabulous, we only used it twice, and this would have cost us 60 euros, we paid more than that for the room upgrade. Wifi appears to be virtually non existent in this hotel. Everyone seemed to crowd into a games room to use wifi. I believe you can pay for wifi but not sure how much it was and to what extent it worked. Overall a very nice hotel, if you don't want to holiday with other british tourists. Not sure we would go back to this hotel, which is a shame because it really is a nice hotel. Location may not have been what we were looking for either, but having not been before, were not aware of this. For kids, there is a small play pool away from the main pool area and has a kids club.More
Excellent food and beautiful room
We arrived and our room was in a lovely location, 6th floor overlooking the ocean and the sun was on our balcony all day. We had half board and the food was excellent for both. We went early for dinner and missed the queue which build up from about 7.30. Breakfast was busy and the staff could not keep the tables cleared. We had to wait for a table at times, don't think there were enough staff in the restaurant for breakfast or dinner. Entertainment was good and a lot of effort for the children on holidays. The pool area was lovely but I don't think guests should have to pay Â£1.95 per day for towel/mattress, this is free in all other hotels we have stayed in Tenerife. The room was clean and maid came each day however toiletries were not replenished each day, we had to buy our own in the local supermarket. Staff at reception were abrupt at times, customer care training would help as first impressions is very important , understand they are busy but it is a tourist country and they should be trained to portray the image of the hotel. The ongoing refurbishment is not disruptive. Internet should be free for guests. I used the hairdresser and she was excellent at her job. Overall very comfortable hotel with excellent food, would recommend and hope to be back.More
Would definitely choose this hotel again.
Amazing view from the room. Great buffet breakfast. Lovely pool - but disappointed that the rule of "no sun recliner reservations" can't be enforced. Not sure how this can be done anywhere. One morning, around 8.20am - 9am, I counted people putting out thier towels on the sun loungers (44 to be exact), and then returning back to the hotel. I think people who do this are greedy. We got down to the pool at about 11am one day and all the sun recliners in the sun were taken, although only half had towels on them, with only 3 people in the swimming pool. Where were the rest of the Germans ? Sleeping it off in their bedrooms after the night before ? Okay, so on we press. The evening entertainment at 9.30pm was generally superb. The entrtainments team (Diana & co) were great, friendly and always willing to ensure that the guests were enjoying themselves. One downside - no free WIFI, only in the kids' games room. Most hotels these days factor it into the cost of the hotel rooms. Also, a major refurbishment programme was underway - always good to see investment in upgrades or renovations. Sadly, quite a few of the extras one would normally get as part of the package (free tea/coffee in the room) were not available and had to be separately paided for or added to the bill. I never make use of the mini-bar in the room as the prices (in my experience) are prohibitively expensive). Credit must be given to the housekeeping staff as they do a superb job, and are always friendly and polite - all of them. The rooms are always neat and tidy and clean when we return after a day out. This hotel is only about 500m from the beach, and also has a shortcut that comes out at the back of the McDonalds down by the beach. Good to use it as I hate going past the bars and restaurants with their touts trying to force you inside. This hotel is highly recommended and will be even better in the future.More
Nice room and spa but otherwise only average
We stayed in a Club Alexandra room which was pleasant enough and allows daily access to the spa. The Spa was pleasant but some areas did not work and it was crowded at times, making it less of the relaxing experience wanted. The hotel is in an area with a lot of nightlife and despite the soundproofing there was noise from nearby clubs until the early hours. The room was clean and comfortable with modern fittings. Some people might not like the glass door to the bathroom. There is a shower over the bath. There is no kettle but a nespresso machine. You get two pods on arrival and have to pay for any more. You also have to pay daily for pool towels, wifi and the room safe. There was a small fridge and you could pay (at exorbitant rates) for a mini bar. There is free wifi in the games room. The hotel main area was undergoing refurbishment while we were there. They kept the disruption to a minimum, but this ought to have been done at a quieter time. We had breakfast as part of the deal and it was not a great experience. You are not met at the door, but have to find your own table and we often could not find one so had to sit at one that had not been cleared and get one of the overworked people to clear it. The food in the buffet is ok and freshly cooked eggs are available. The coffee is horrid and you have to queue to get it. Overall this hotel has some good points, but I won't be backMore
