Gala is a family-friendly hotel near Playa de las Americas, on the south west coast of Tenerife. It has two outdoor swimming pools, one of which is heated throughout the year. Children can play in the splash pool, which also has a water slide. It's a short stroll to the beach, where you can paddle in the shallow water or stretch out on the dark-coloured sand. You'll also be a short walk from the bars, nightclubs and restaurants of Playa de las Americas, along with its palm tree-lined waterfront. You can dine at the restaurant, which offers a buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you feel peckish between meals, you can also order snacks and drinks from the two bars. Set in gently sloping gardens, the building has a whitewashed exterior, with a sun terrace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. You'll find floor-to-ceiling windows in the lobby, alongside a bar, TV corner and Wi-Fi. Rooms have light coloured walls, wooden floors and matching furniture, plus patio doors leading onto a balcony or sun terrace. At Gala, you can spend time at the spa, which offers a selection of treatments, including wraps, peels and massages. If you prefer something more active, you'll find table tennis, darts and fitness classes onsite. The hotel is within walking distance of local attractions, including a water park, golf course and three shopping centres. You can take a day trip to visit more sandy beaches and rocky mountains, along with the seaside resort of Puerto de la Cruz, in the north of the island.

Gala is a short walk from the centre of Playa de las Americas, with its bright lights, nightclubs and bars. You can hunt for souvenirs in the local shops or sip a cocktail at a waterfront cafe. You'll be 1km from Siam Park, which has water slides, swimming pools and a lazy river, set amidst the palm trees. If you like walking, you can wander across the seafront to Los Cristianos, which is a short drive away. The former fishing village is home to two beaches and a boat-lined harbour. You can dine on freshly caught seafood at a waterside restaurant or order drinks at a rooftop bar. Further afield, you could take a day trip to the Teide National Park, with its active volcano and mountainous terrain. You can hike through the hillside trails or take a cable car to the summit. From here, you'll have views across Tenerife and neighbouring islands, including Gran Canaria, La Gomera and La Palma.

At Gala, you can dine alfresco or indoors at the buffet restaurant, which offers a selection of international cuisine at breakfast, lunch and dinner. You could also sit in the shade of the poolside bar, which serves internationally branded drinks and snacks from morning until late.

You can keep fit at the gym or join an aqua aerobics class in the pool. After sunset, you could watch the evening entertainment with a drink.

Two pool areas and a pool bar.

Sleep Quality



Bring a kettle

May 2022 | Shazzawil

Just checked out of this hotel and after reading some reviews as always, was a bit sceptical. The hotel itself is lovely and it’s cleaned all the time. Has a sea view. The rooms were were cleaned every day and if needed the towels were changed. Had to ask them on 2 occasions to leave more towels as they only left one new one between 2 of us!! Our room was lovely decorated in bright white and red. Bathroom was very clean and spacious. There is a coffee machine in the room but if you want normal coffee or tea then bring your own kettle. Dining area very clean. Meals were a bit repetitive and if you like fish you’d be ok as they seem to do a lot of fish dishes. Had the normal chips, chicken nuggets, pizza etc so always something to eat. Could do with somehow keeping it warmer better cos it was either almost cold (unless you was first in) or cold. Breakfasts were a disappointment as was the desserts. Pool area clean and plenty of beds only downside was as the pool is an open area if the breeze gets up it’s freezing when you come out of it. Staff in general very courteous and helpful. Shower room is available when you check out. Checkout is 12.00 and your room key is taken from you so you can’t get anymore drinks or have snacks or lunch after this time and if your all inclusive as I was it means you are losing a meal so you have to buy at the hotel or the shops across the road, or in fact at the airport. Would I stay again? Yes I would

we have just returned from Hotel Alexandre Gala hotel in Playa de Las Americas in Tenerife. Check in was prompt. Here are some pros and cons: Pros Hotel was lovely and clean. We had a standard room which was lovely and enough space for the two of us. Breakfast was always good with a wide selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurts cooked breakfast even porridge for us Scots!! Location was fab and the Gala was set well enough back from Veronica's so we heard no noise what so ever. Comfy beds. Juanna the chef did great omelettes at breakfast. I would come back again but only on a B&B basis. Cons Towels although fresh daily had a funny smell to them. Didn't like how you run up a bill if you buy drinks we were half board but only ate in the restaurant at night twice on our 7 day break as the food appeared to be getting worse by the night. Black paella never seen that before. Food was bland. As I'm vegetarian I found it hard to find something to eat most nights. There is only so much salad you can eat!! Sunbeds don't get hosed down at night so be prepared for some sticky ones and crumbs on them. Can't comment on entertainment as we never stayed in to watch the entertainment.

Wouldn't recommend. Bad rooms and accused of breaking TV.

Drilling in early hours of the morning, AC not working and accused of breaking TV that never worked and I reported to reception! Had a bad experience at this hotel firstly the AC and aircon never worked. Reported to reception they replaced TV however sound didn't work this time and AC worked for the night then stopped working again (and even when it worked it was more like a fan then an aircon) 3 days later our room keys stopped working. Went to reception to be told a manager wanted to speak to us,waited 10 minutes to be told we broke the TV in the room and wanted to charge us €230 when the TV was broke since arrival and we reported it to reception! This spoilt our holiday and we did ask to switch rooms however was told no. There was a lack of entertainment and things to do at the hotel no pool activities etc. Only night time entertainment which wasn't the best and wasn't on for long. Didn't get much sleep either with banging and drilling from early in the morning every morning apart from on the last day. We stayed in 454. Location is good though with a short walk to Los Cristianos and Costa Adeje
