Had the privilege to spend an evening in the company of Bev and her Band of merry workers. A constant source of warmth and knowledge, no task or question was too much effort for her, her friendly staff and cozy quarters. Great food, great beer and a fantastic atmosphere. Thanks again Bev

We were a group of 9 family and friends combined on our second stay at the wonderful Gala Gala eco resort !! Bev & Mandy are exceptional hosts and go out of their way to accommodate you. We were taken in and out of ponta village at our own schedule. The food was absolutely amazing. Breakfasts and dinners equally divine I wouldn’t be able to even to choose which is the more important meal of the day. I’m especially thankful for their great efforts to accommodate our vegan and vegetarian friends and family. Beautiful rooms and lounging areas with the most amazing lush greenery all surrounding you. Never have I felt more at home and on a getaway simultaneously! Birds and monkeys singing in the daylight and frogs to sing you to sleep! Tropical paradise ! Thank you once again for a utterly magical stay ! Love you both xx

Lovely welcoming staff and great atmosphere- will come again! I highly recommend this lovely eco-lodge. Away from the noise but close enough to the beach and town. Thanks for a fun getaway weekend- cheers!

Me and my wife had an absolutely superb stay in Gala Gala resort. It's a beautiful place to stay, tucked away a little way out of town, with a very relaxed vibe.

Sandy and Bev took superb care of us; booking our activities and meals, arranging lifts in to town, and generally being amazing. They also took me find medical help when I hurt my leg on the beach...I can't thank them enough for that.

Would fully recommend for anyone visiting Ponta d'Ouro.

Barefoot luxury is what you will find at Gala Gala. A well equipped self catering resort, spotlessly clean, well organised and a pleasure to stay in. The rooms are serviced daily and the staff do the dishes too, what a pleasure! The lodge has a casual bohemian feel, and its ethos is peace and quiet, with no loud behaviour or music allowed. The staff and owners are friendly and obliging, going beyond expectation. A great place for a romantic couples holiday or a family adventure. We loved it and will definitely be back.
