What People Say About Galo Resort

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
