The hotel was good, very clean and comfortable.  Great views. Really enjoyed the yoga, lots of variety of instructors and styles. Good balance of spiritual and physical activity. Pools and sea access was also great. Breakfast was very good and there were plenty of options for food in the evening  As a solo traveller it was very safe with lots of options of things to do- I went for the dolphin and whale trip

I had a fantastic holiday at Galo resort! The hotel was so lovely. All the staff were amazing, super helpful and so friendly.  Everything was so well organised with my itinerary from the transfers, for Pilates and my treatments. The Spa was incredible and I throughly enjoyed the 3 treatments you organised for me. Pilates was great too. Everyday was different which kept it really fun! I am definitely going to rebook this holiday again with you for and will return to Galo. I didn’t want to come home! 

Thank you so much for all your help. It was exactly what I needed! 


 The resort was really lovely and it was nice to have the massages included. I would definitely choose this hotel again. The excursion company linked to the hotel were brilliant as well, I went on 2 outings with them and they were great.
