We have just returned from a 7 night stay at the Galetamar Hotel. On arrival we were met by a very nice night duty/receptionist who's English was very poor but he was very pleasant who offered us a late meal as we didn't arrive until 2am but we rejected the kind offer due to being too tired. The room (no. 117) was adequate with a great shower and very clean with nice clean bed lining and towels. The maid did an absolute stunning job! The balcony had no view just a view of a car park hence we never used it during our stay. The hotel itself once we were out of our room felt like we had walked into a hospital corriodor. Very tired looking and very dated with broken tiles and plaster coming off the wall around the door frames. The food was average but it wasn't hot enough. The water for tea & coffee was nowhere near hot enough either. As for the entertainment is was non-existent. The weekly entertainment board was completely blank. Only on the Saturday night did we get some entertainment but this was geared purely towards the Spanish guests. The pool area was OK but a lot of the sunbeds were uncomfortable and broken and the only view we had was of a crane. All in all we would not stay here again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone else either. This was not a 3 Star hotel... Collapse
Friendly staff, fantastic entertainment team

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Galetamar and are a family with two boys (8 and 4). My husband and I travelled extensively before having kids and have holidayed at least twice a year since having children. I would class this holiday as possibly the best family holiday I have ever had. I am basing this comment on the fact that the kids enjoyed it so much which is my main priority these days - if they are happy then so am I. The hotel and bungalows (where we stayed) are clean and do everything you need. The bungalows were very comfortable and I think the bedrooms and bathroom had been recently updated. A nice little kitchen (clean and again I think it is new) which does the job for making a bit of breakfast etc. A full sized fridge which is good for drinks etc. Although this hotel is to one end of Calpe there are some very good restaurants nearby. My husband actually preferred the location as the promenade in the centre could get quite crowded. We did not eat the evening meal in the hotel so I can't really comment on that. There is a nice little beach called La Calalga which is much less crowded than the main beach in Calpe and actually preferable for swimming. The pool in the hotel is clean and it is good to have the small children's pool. Generally Calpe has a good feel and people have good attitudes to visitors and tourists (in my view). The area is family friendly and feels safe - no rowdiness or bad behaviour. The main thing I would like to comment on is the amazingly friendly staff and particularly/mainly Luis who is the entertainment manager and really the key person who leads activities. I never actually write reviews on here but feel compelled to comment this time. The fun and friendly environment really set this holiday apart from others we have been on. We took part in Aquagym every day which was a brilliant and fun start to the morning - led by Luis who actually is a trained dancer and incredibly good fun. My husband even took part which I have never known before with this type of activity. He saw how fun it was and actually wanted to do it. Luis is an absolute star and the hotel are lucky to have him. During the day other activities (e.g. darts, scuba diving) were on offer as well as the great activities for children. In the evening the minidisco for children was fantastic and Luis leads some fantastic evenings which are perfect for the little ones. On a couple of nights a week there is a singer on after the minidisco. Basically every night there is something happening. My children absolutely did not want to leave and we have a case of "post-holiday blues" now we are home. My son told me tonight he wants to return and can it be for 3 weeks next time? AR Galetamar - you are really getting it right here. Luis is simply the best. Staff on reception were good and it is also very easy to get a taxi to the old town (which is recommended as it is lovely!). Taxis arrive within minutes. Bar staff are lovely too. Collapse
Too far from the main beach

Along with my elderly parents, my 2 year old son and my husband we stayed in a bungalow at the hotel. It was large enough and had everything that we needed in the kitchen, and when we requested something extra, the staff was kind enough to provide it. However, the location is very far from the beach (1 - 1.3 km ) and became a strain to walk the distance 4 times a day (in the mornings round trip, and then in the afternoon again). The view from the bungalow was to an abandoned construction site. During the 9 days of our stay, the housekeeping service came just once. The entry to the bungalow parking was very narrow, so larger cars had difficulty in entering. Collapse

I'll start my review by mentioning how excellent the staff were at the hotel, all had a smile on their faces and were great with our 2 yr old. We found the pool area great, nice and relaxing and the bar is well stocked. Our room was fine however there was a locked shutter denying access to the kitchen. We had a lovely large balcony and the hotel is in a nice location and the strip is within walking distance. I'll get to the not so great points from our point of view anyway (were a couple in our late 20s)... the hotel really would be more catered for the older holidaymaker, it's quite dated in places. There was nothing for our little one in the hotel apart from the kids pool. The entertainment consisted of bingo, boules, line dancing etc. When we just arrived we went to the pool area to have a drink and right beside us one of the English elderly residents was complaining about holiday makers and how she's not getting enough money letting out her apartment, not the best welcome when you've literally just arrived and sat down to start your holiday. We did find the majority of the residents to be lovely though. Overall we had a good holiday... Calpe is exceptionally beautiful, we'll certainly be back to Calpe. Collapse
