Very friendly accommodation with many options to choose from, self-catering, camping sites, etc.
The common areas are spacious and very clean (kitchen, bathrooms, boma/braai, bar). Personnel and other guests are very kind, following the spirit and nature of this place.
We had a sleeper cabana, was nicely arranged, it does the job. The whole resort is very nice, surrounded by nature and properly isolated from noise. Perhaps the bed could have been a little bit softer.
The beach is just a few minutes walk away, also reachable by car. This is a very secluded and almost empty beach to enjoy!
Bear in mind this is a self-catering option, and it is exactly like that. Except for breakfast (if you ask for it), you are on your own. Staff is always keen to help in any case.

Such a wonderful week spent here. We opted for the deluxe chalets and they are worth the extra spend. Our little kids loved it and being off season, we got to experience the whole area easily. Clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation with a very special vibe to the resort. Will definitely be back

I attended an Animal Communication Workshop and Wild Dolphin Retreat that was being held at Gala-Gala and Bev and Mandy made us all feel at home from the minute we arrived to the last second before our departure.

The rooms are wonderfully simplistic and you can hear the ocean when lying in bed at night - what a better way to fall asleep?!

The food was absolutely delicious and nothing was too much trouble. There is also a fully equipped communal kitchen where you can prepare your own food if preferred or required.

We were well and truly spoilt and I cannot wait to go back to the tranquility and beauty of Gala-Gala.

This is truly my version of heaven on earth and it would not be complete without my new friends - Bev and Mandy and all their beautiful and friendly fur-babies.

Thank you guys for the best time ever!! See you soon :)

Lots of love,
Nelmie

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms to choose from - all are comfortable and provide the necessities required for a good night's rest

I have just returned from running a Wild Dolphin Retreat and Animal Communication experience which we hosted at Gala Gala. I cannot thank Bev and Mandy enough for an amazing time. The food was just delicious, the accommodation incredible and their hospitality was superb. They made my guests and participants feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. They really went above and beyond and by the time we left it was like leaving family. Thank you Bev and Mandy for an exceptional week. I would highly recommend Gala Gala to all, individual and groups wanting run retreats. It is amazing and work 6 never mind 5 stars. Love and blessings. Tammy

Bev and Mandy are fantastic hosts. Chalets are rustic but very comfortable and clean. Set in peaceful, tranquil surroundings. Within a longush walking distance from the beach and market. The best secret...the food is five star!
