I do not enjoy writing negative reviews (This is the first negative report I have ever written) but this place is so bad that I just have to warn others. The room was infested with insects, the food was luke warm and made us ill. The staff were extremely rude and not willing to help at all. Next to the hotel is a brothel with lots of unsavory characters and men dealing drugs. Do yourselves a favour and choose a different holiday resort, this really is a terrible choice for anyone looking for a nice holiday. The holiday and hotel from hell.

Stayed for 1 week half board - 8 year old in tow - excellent all round facilities, staff very pleasant and helpful, food varied - hot & cold selection, good - clean living quarters,
Beach to view and very large pool area. Price of clean pool towel & mattress acceptable as you pay more on the beach.
Would go again....

Room Tip: if your not satisfied with room - tell reception

Reviewed 12 February 2012

Just returned from a four night stay at the Gala. We are part of a large group and we have stayed at the hotel annually for the last ten years or more. The staff are welcoming and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are clean but basic. The only downside is that they were unable to lend us an iron on a Sunday as the laundry facilities are closed at the weekend. This was very inconvenient as we had a formal gala dinner that night and several people had evening shirts and dresses to press. Previous reviews mention the prostitution problem next door but we saw no evidence of this, although there were some girls accosting people down on the main road late at night.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are quieter but a bit of a walk from reception.
