Start the day with a hearty buffet breakfast by the pool. The ocean view room was comfortable with wonderful views. Excellent seaside facilities and options for active people. Stay with my young family for a week and we were sad when we had to leave. This Island is heaven in the Atlantic and this hotel is the perfect affordable base...

I had an amazing time at Galosol. The property is big with a lot of private spaces, direct access to the see from the private platform, a bar, a restaurant, a pizzeria, a lot of organized activities with the hotel directly (walking, jogging, yoga) or partners (scuba diving, snorkeling, island tours, hiking, a lot of sports). The hotel itself is...

Perfectly nice Hotel offering a good value late getaway alternative. Some parts of the Hotel and service were perhaps not up to a 4 star rating. The Hotel food in the restaurants and bars was generally disappointing, probably best described as 'beige' and we did not return to any of the onsite outlets. The whole Island is far less commercial...

The hotel was beautiful and the food was always fresh and delicious. The night before we left, a hotel staff member, Antonio Silva came to our room to bring us fresh fruit and breakfast for the following day. The hotel was aware that we were leaving in the morning before the breakfast buffet would open, so they went out of...

Stayed in Galosol for 3 nights as my best friend was getting married at the venue. There was a free breakfast included every morning, which ranged from a cooked breakfast to pastries and fruit with fruit juice, tea and coffee on offer - couldn't have been better.

Hotel Galosol is a very nice hotel with friendly staff. There's a lot to do in and around the hotel and the location is perfect. It's close to the highway so it's easy to go to the other parts of the island. The cleaning is excellent!
