    I stayed there the last several years and the galeon is in a perfect location and very good value for money.

      stayed at the galeon playa several times and is in the perfect location for the shops and bars and over the road you have a stunning beach.

    When are you planning to go?

    I’ve looked on review websites for the ‘feel’ of a place. There is always someone with a horror story wherever you go. I’ve looked at places we’ve really enjoyed however some people say they would never go there again!

    We have stayed here at least 4 times – in 1 and 2 bed apartments and are going again in May.

    During the day we’ve sometimes stayed around the first pool (as you come through reception) but most times just wander to one of the many beaches, walk about, have lunch somewhere. Come back to shower and change and then go out again so can’t really comment on the entertainment, kids club or dining facilities.

    It isn’t five star. The rooms have always been clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, no problems getting a sun bed.

    The location is really good. Near taxis, buses, beaches, shops…. Look on Google Earth and you will see that just outside the front door of the GP, there are shops for your supplies. Also lots of places within walking distance will do a take-away service – pizza, Chinese etc if you would rather stay in.

    Self-catering every time for us. So many places to eat and lots of variety of cuisine.

    Well….we are going back.

    Hi Wendy,
    Thanks for taking the time to reply , we will be returning in June, we were in C.T. in March for two weeks, for our sins we have always gone A.I. But we have decided to try self catering as we find that we dine out most of the time. I agree with your obserbations about using review sites we have stayed at hotels we thought we lovely , but other people thought were terrible everyones expectations are different.

    Have to agree with most of the posted comments – basic aprtments but clean and fairy spacious with everything you need in a holiday apartment.

    Fantastic location – we have used then 5 times now and only once have we asked to be moved – there was a slight damp smell in our allocated room – moved with no questions asked

    I wouldnt hesitate to use them again and they are in our considerations for January 2014
