The preparation was great, great that you thought about which location was right for us, and arranged the treatments. In retrospect, we did not plan it 100% right, we would have liked to have another day where we could do a hike, and that was just not possible because of all those wonderful treatments ... The hotel looked ideed super new & clean. No surprise that there was German management behind it. The terraces with views are award-winning!
I would have liked it if they could have helped us more with sports activities. For this they referred us to the other hotels. To make the wellness even better, I would have liked a swimming facility where you don't have to get dressed first and have to walk a long way. And an option to eat something in your bathrobe. We did really miss those big healthy salads, the restaurant didn't have those either
Lying in the sun in January and then plunging into the sea by stairs, that alone was a reason for me to go to Galomar!

All very well. The first thing that caught my attention when I arrived at the Galomar hotel was my room with a sea view, since the building is built on a cliff. I really liked the promotion of sustainability and the involvement in protecting the environment, through the use of solar panels, bins with different compartments to recycle waste, healthy food...
They have an area with direct access to the sea (Lido Mar), which is impressive and if I have to mention something about it, I would say that sometimes it is full of families and at certain times it is quite crowded.
As for the moments that I will remember from this experience, I would highlight the contact with nature since the island offers lots of possibilities to enjoy a beautiful setting far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the colour of the sea and swimming between colourful fish and corals, the massages at the Akosha Spa and the kindness and professionalism of the girls who gave the massages, the impressive views from my room...
In short, it has been a vacation where there have been moments where I have managed to reconnect with myself, renewing energy to return strongly to the routine.

Exactly what I was looking for! Good quality spa treatments. Beautiful surroundings, almost everywhere in the hotel a very nice sea view. Wonderful sauna with sea view. The only regret was that there were little options for lactose-free/gluten-free products at breakfast and dinner. I enjoyed and have returned home again with new energy!

We are back home after a wonderful week in Madeira. The preparation was efficient and questions were answered immediately. Our first impression was that the hotel met our expectations, we are interior designers so we also selected on design. We were received very hospitably.
The Spa was beautiful! The Atlantis restaurant, what a cool place to sit..!
Furthermore, we had already read that the standard half board was disappointing so we were prepared for that. We had to go to another building / the former pizza restaurant for that. That in itself was not a problem, but the whole atmosphere did not match with what we found in Galomar. Also the food was catering food and not our thing. We ate at another restaurant nearby for 1 evening, but we continued to find Atlantis the most magical place and tastiest food. Ended up having a fantastic meal there for the rest of the evenings! What we didn't know and would have been really nice if we had known that beforehand: we received a 16 euro voucher per evening to eat at Atlantis instead of in the standard half board restaurant. We had to book that through the reception every evening for the next day and then it was arranged in the system ... REALLY GREAT! The hamman towels that we received, as a gift through you, was a really nice pleasant surprise. Thanks for this!
We really loved it and would love to come back.

Better than we thought. The hotel well located, nice rooms, great food and the classes had great instructors. Additionally the hotel is by the ocean and had a nice infrastructure as well.
The variety of workout activities combined with good food, massages in a great location, we liked the most. One point for improvement is that Galomar is part of a bigger resort and we had to figure out lots of things during the first day (booking and location of the classes, etc…). Maybe some instructions that could have been left at the room or at the reception could help to speed up the process. The view from the restaurants, pool and room are stunning!
Great experience and we highly recommend this option. Great cost benefit.

The Fitness program was perfect. At least 3 lessons were necessary to get effective results. The wishes were taken into account and before the first session we took measurements of the body. All these things made the program complete. Around the hotel you have beautiful views of the sea, so so relaxing and also the beautiful weather. What more could you wish for?
I really enjoyed it. It completely was what I was looking for. Quiet surroundings surrounded by the sea with beautiful boulevard. Sports facilities in combination with the 3 PT sessions.
I already look forward to my next holiday!

There can be no better way to kick back and relax than at Hotel Galomar. It has only recently undergone a major refurbishment, the results of which the management can rightly be very proud. The overall feel is one of cool, relaxed sophistication. Everything has been carefully thought through and with the sole purpose of making the guests feel totally relaxed. Our room was a lovely place to spend time. The beauty of the Galomar is the choice available to guests. If you are in the mood to be pampered, the Ashoka Spa provides any number of treatments that, coupled with the authentic detailing of the spa itself, will lead you to ultimate relaxation. If you are looking to be active, there is an endless choice of sports and activities. For me personally, one of the nicest things about our stay was just how friendly the staff were. The hotel is not just a nice environment for guests, but the staff appeared to genuinely enjoy working there too. Everyone was smiley, helpful and easy-going, adding that final layer of ‘X factor’ to the whole experience.
