To start with, this is surely a nice hotel. Whether it is an excellent one depends very much on what you expect from a hotel. What I usually appreciate is a pragmatic attitude: Things should function and be uncomplicated. High-bandwidth wifi is a must. It is good if staff can speak English. In contrast, I could not care less whether... More

The facilities of the Costa Galana are excellent! However, more importantly, the staff are unique in their attention to detail and help. Everyone did everything they possibly could to make our stay a very memorable one indeed. I've no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone!

Spending the weekend in this hotel made me feel like a star from a Hollywood movie. I was very lucky so as to book a suite with a great view... Every night I could see the beach and sea from my bed... I love Mar del Plata, but staying in this hotel made me want to stay in. The spa... More

Costa Galana is an elegant Hotel with an exhilarating view of the Ocean. It is an elegant, warm place to stay. The rooms are perfectly kept. The breakfast was rich and various. The staff was discreet and effective. Everything was truly top level.

From the moment that I arrived at the Hotel Costa Galana in Mar del Plata, I felt like at home. From the doorman to the front desk, I received only smiles and the desire to help me. The room was very comfortable and clean, the view to the ocean was unbelievable. The variety of food at breakfast was incredible. Variety... More

This is my second time here, and it's always better than I expect. The spa is well equipped and kept, they have a great outdoor pool and the breakfast is awesome. The treatment you get is their best feature. I recommend it and will come back!

We stayed here with our family to celebrate the New Year. Staff was friendly and helpful. We used and enjoyed all the facilities, pool by the ocean, heated pool on the third floor, spa. The breakfast served ample amounts of food, but besides the fresh fruit, the quality of the breakfast was below par. For the price you're paying they... More

I stayed here with member of my family early January. The hotel has pro's and con's but my overall opinion is that it was an amazing place 15 years ago. The place looks a little dated and could do with bringing up to date. That said, the service was excellent and the food/drink was also. The only reason I am... More

The location was good and the view very nice, but the service is very average. The front desk attendant told us our room was not ready (@5pm), just a few more minutes and then he left and never returned! After we waited for another attendant, they never apologized for the delay. They also never explained anything about the hotel (breakfast,... More

We just spent the weekend in Mar del Plata and stayed at the Costa Galana. It was not what I had expected! Although it did have a great location and the bed was very comfortable, I had expected total impeccable, but found several things not to our liking. First, the shower had 1/2 a glass door and although the water... More
