                          We absolutely loved our stay at Gala-gala! We stayed there for 5 nights with our 2 children. Its a lovely tranquil environment close enough to the town and beaches. The resort exceeded our expectations! Nicola was a great hostess and made sure we were comfortable at all times. She helped to arrange activities and gave us lots of ideas of what to do.

                          Excellent family stay. Host Bev was very helpful from breakfast to revealing the best places to visit around. Restaurant, Sapphire Sands made the best food. Will definitely return.
