Went to this hotel for five nights really dreading it after reading reviews on trip advisor. Went with seven lads ranging from 20 -50+ . It isn't as bad as the reviews state, it's cheap it's cheerful and clean. I'd never go to this hotel with the wife and kids but I'd never go to benidorm with the wife and kids. Collapse

Having just returned from staying at Hotel Gala Placidia, I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Some of the reviews that I read before hand painted a bad scene, and I was a little apprehensive about staying there. Some of the reviews were right about the noise issues. And I have to say that is probably our biggest complaint. Don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to people going out and having fun but it is common courtesy when you return at 4-5am to keep the noise down. As for our room, it was pretty much standard size and the balcony was okay. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was adequate. The all inclusive food was lovely and there was a good variety for each meal It was definitely good value for money. The pool areas were clean and tidy with just enough sunbeds but definitely not enough umbrellas. The staff we encountered were helpful, lovely and were bilingual. As for the entertainment of an evening, it was pretty much standard but with so much to do in Benidorm this wasn't a problem. Our only other complaint was that the hotel does cater for Hen and Stag party groups and this put a downer on our holiday, with the idiotic behaviour of some of the blokes. As for the hotel being advertised as a "family hotel" I certainly wouldn't stay here with children. So overall, the hotel was nice, staff lovely and the food was quality. Collapse
Our holiday good and bad

Hello everyone so I'm writing again and today it's about the recent stay at the gala placidia hotel in Benidorm so I must say it wasn't all that bad and believe me I'm a tough critic when it comes to hotels so I'l say that it is very basic and you are pretty much fending for yourself as soon as you arrive. The location of this hotel is great it's down the road from the town and so it's near to shops restaurants and pubs/ bars I will say though when you get dropped off your transfer will not drop you outside the hotel it's actually up the hill so the corner your dropped make sure you look up the road as it's on your right at the top. Otherwise you will walk around a while if you don't ask someone. The reception staff I have to say we're kind and helpful in regards to the local area. Such as money exchange places and rates and restaurants. The room well as you've probably seen before you get whay you paid for yes its true the room is basic but it's good enough it's clean and air con worked fine so no problems there I will write the bad points at the end and the outcomes of this. The food and drinks the drinks were ok they had variety I mostly had Malibu and pineapple juice if was drinking alcohol if not theres a really nice drink it's like sprite called lima Limon. Food now the food was average there was good things and bad but I found it ok. The staff now there's we're nice and not so nice i found I will say that Danilo the man in the restaurant he was lovely and some of the bar staff were too. The entertainment now I have mixed views on this as they are lovely people but there's nothing to do in the afternoon you may see one of the team doing a game of pool or something that would be it and in the evening it was the same unless there was a performer coming it would be a quiz of some sort then karaoke now I was disappointed with this there was no children entertainment so I would suggest maybe going later in the year if you have kids as it's very poring otherwise me and my husband actually got up and done some dances for them and sung alot too just to build some atmosphere which it certainly did other holiday makers said we should of done it every night they enjoyed it which is nice for us to hear but In reality it shouldn't be us to do it. So onto the bad points I only have a couple and one major one. • all inclusive now my question is why is it taken away as soon as you check out fair enough the food but having to then pay for a water each time and then it's not a bottle but in a small plastic cup I think is barbaric . • the cups now they are plastic and small which would be fine but the rule of 2 drinks per person now thats just pointless by the time you got them and walk to where you are sitting you have drunk them and need to go get more. • the no fridge in the room now we found this hard as my husband is diabetic and needs to keep his medication cool when we asked reception they had no idea what we meant and when we saw the customer relations woman on our last day how convenient ... when my husband mentioned the no fridge she was very rude and her reply was well next time look elsewhere and for the room facilities to make sure there is a fridge ... um excuse me but HOW DARE YOU!!!! But regards to this I will be complaining about her to management and she was so unprofessional not even writing anything down or offering any helpful advice !!! She was lucky I was tired and didn't want to argue ! And last but not least • desserts there needs to be more of an option as they were the same daily so I was disappointed in that. • and of course more entertainment in the day a kids club and more adult games drinking ones. And evening entertainment too needs to be more thought of. Hotel owner me and my husband would happily be your entertainers :-) Anyway thank you for reading this and I hope you have a great stay here it would be a 4* if these things were sorted Thank you :-) Collapse
Girly week away

This hotel provided a great stay for a short break for friends the staff were lovely and very helpful....the food if all inclusive was beautiful and is probably one of the better menus I have experienced when eating all inclusive. The bar is opened throughout the day and entertainment is every night downstairs. Rooms are basic but are really clean and the bedding/room is cleaned daily which is lovely after a day of sun bathing. The staff really try to keep this hotel in good order and frequently gather feedback from customers....it can be rowdy with people enjoying themselves so if you are wanting a little piece and quiet I would request a room at the back of the hotel. Then again it is benidorm and people love to party there. We payed £140 for 4x nights all inclusive great value for money and the the food and drink could not be faulted. Collapse
