Location stunning, food poor
Clare Walton, County Durham, England
We had a lovely break here at the beginning of October. The staff and hotel were lovely. The big let down for me was the food. The selection was poor, and the quality was poor. I appreciate it was getting towards the end of the season but that's no excuse really. Having stayed in another hotel in the resort ( that pales in comparison on looks and location) I have got to say there food was far superior. It was not up to 4 star quality. And what little there was , was always tepid at best. We will certainly be visiting the resort again but unfortunately not this hotel.
The best thing about my stay was...The stunning location and views over the bay

It doesn't get better than this
"It doesn't get better than this". The words my husband said when we were seated eating breakfast in the terrace restaurant. We found the food good and the views fantastic. Hotel is sparkling clean and the maids are very friendly. In fact we found all staff very welcoming. Would we return? Most certainly.
The best thing about my stay was...Service, food and views

Wonderfull Holiday Again
Brian Jones, Spain
Been coming to this hotel for over 20 yrs. and as previously we had a really great time . The staff were superb especially the lady who cleaned our room every day. The food in the indoor restaurant was great with plenty of choice even for the most discerning of eaters. The reception staff were very welcoming and attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Really looking forward to our next visit.
The best thing about my stay was...All the staff and the choice of food.

Lovely relaxing week. Picture perfect.
Gill , Manchester
Lovely beach front location. Perfect sea view. Marvellous food, plenty of choice every night. Would be difficult not to find something for all tastes. Evening entertainment excellent. 5 minute walk into centre. A couple of minor points that would improve the stay. Free Wifi would be useful although there is a sports bar in the centre that supplies this. Free safe would also be beneficial and I think should be provided in the cost. If you like to get out and about then the bus routes are extremely limited so a car is useful. However, lovely sandy beach and plenty of sunbeds means there is no need to stray far.
The best thing about my stay was...Location on the beach.

High Standard Hotel, convenient for beach, good customer care
Mrs Anne Bothwick, Winchester
This is our third visit to the Hoel Sol Gavilanes. We like everything about the hotel. Our only criticism is that the entertainment is not great. the performers are all very good, but there is not proper music to accompany them and so it all feels slightly like karaoke. There is also no proper dance area and so if we wish to dance to live music, we have to walk over to the Audax Hotel which is a shame as we would prefer to patronise our own hotel for drinks etc.

Hotel clean and rooms were a good size. Quite a variety of foods in restaurant. Only thing that I didn't like was that water served at breakfast for tea was tepid and not boiling hot.
The best thing about my stay was...Hotel right opposite beach. Crystal clear sea and lovely sand & safe for swimming.

very relaxing - clean, comfortable hotel with great views
Neil S, Cheshire
Service was very efficient and the staff were always very helpful, albeit the restaurant staff can be slightly brusque at peak times. The family rooms (2 bedroom and 2 bathroom variant) were an excellent size and the amenities were comfortable. On the 7th floor it can be a bit noisy in the morning from about 6.30 as it is immediately below the restaurant floor. Fabulous location and overall really good value for money. The only real criticism would be that the pool area is too small for a hotel of this size and if your towel isn't down on one of the beds by 9 o'clock you've got no chance. It didn't bother us as we went to the beach but it could be an issue for people who prefer the pool.
The best thing about my stay was...the views from the room and restaurant bar area

We booked a short stay with son and daughter in law for three nights. The hotel is beautiful, the views stunning. The rooms aren't very big, as stated in some of the reviews, but who spends much time in there anyway? They are spotlessly clean, the whole hotel is. The staff are pleasant, not overly friendly like some hotels we have been, ready for laugh, but pleasant enough. Service at the bars is very slow, but then the whole way of life here is!! Beach is beautiful, not much for children just the sea and sand, but then that's all some little ones want. If you are looking for a nice quiet getaway....then this is the place. We will be back!!
The best thing about my stay was...The location of the hotel, right on the beach.

Disappointing to say the least
Ann Marie Murphy, Douglas
Having tried unsuccessfully for six years to book this hotel for our annual trip to Menorca which coincided with the dates we usually travel I booked a year in advance and was lucky enough to book a family room (my family - 2 Adults & 2 children (13 and 5). We arrived at the hotel mid afternoon, the sun was shining and Galdana looked amazing as always. We booked in with a very nice man who was very pleasant and helpful. We then went to our room. I don't think I could describe the disappointment but on a scale of 1 to 10 our disappointment level would definitely have been 9. The photos used in the holiday brochure and indeed on line were definitely taken with wide angle lens and made the room look so much bigger that it actually was. The door would only open half way as the children's beds were in what can only be described as a hallway. Certainly not a bedroom. The bathroom was also tiny. I went from being on top of the world at the beginning of our holiday to completely dumb-founded. I have never felt disappointment like it. Apart from all that the food was lovely and the staff were very friendly but this is not a hotel I would rush back to again. The location is of course superb and I think this is the reason people keep going back. The entertainment was also adequate.

Lovely place and great hotel
Angela Thallon, Southampton
This must be the perfect setting for any hotel with a view right onto the gorgeous bay. We took my Mum there as she had visited it 14 years in a row with my Dad and wanted to return there for the memories. The rooms were very comfortable with a great view over the sea - get a high floor so you can see through the trees though, but low enough so you aren't disturbed by the roof terrace restaurant/bar/entertainment - would recommend floor 5. Walls were a bit thin though so take earplugs for the neighbours. Air conditioning was fab tho and the least noisy I've ever known, also had a big ceiling fan over the bed. Housekeeping was excellent - every day with towel art animals left for us! We stayed half-board but if I was to go back it would be on a b& b basis. The evening food wasn't served in the way you would expect in a 4* hotel - more like school dinners and was repetitive apart from the specials. The staff were all great - especially to my Mum, who they all greeted like a long lost relative! - and it was a lovely hotel in all. Just wouldn't go for the evening meals given the choice. There was nightly entertainment in the roof terrace restaurant - some good, some terrible but that's what you get in the hotel circuit.
The best thing about my stay was...The view!

A Great time - No complaints
Richard Gardner, Wolverhampton
We stayed in this hotel in October 2011. We have stayed in the resort a few times in private Villas and wanted to try the hotel. Like with other Sol hotels everything is generally quite good. The rooms are clean if a little dated. The communal areas have been recently refurbished and are very nice. Food is well cooked and presented but can get repetetive over a week. Some staff, especially restaurant staff, can be a bit moody but I imagine I would be after a season of dealing with holiday makers. The resort is beautiful but quiet. Its great for couples and young families who want a quiet time. There are a few bars and restaurants but dont expect a wild night
The best thing about my stay was...Excellent beach

Rita Múrias, Lisbon, Portugal
The hotel is great, the view is fantastic! Frontal sea view is a good choice! The food is good, not perfect but very aceptable. The night shows are great, Mickael Jackson´s tribute, Dancing in the street, Elvis, Bossa Nova... I went in the first days of October and the weather was perfect! (i´m sorry for my english, i´m portuguese)
The best thing about my stay was...The hotel location
