We stayed here with our 10 year old son, the room was clean but basic. The maids came daily and we're very accomadating as we didn't get up that early, so they came later. The staff at the pool bar were great very chatty and enjoyed giving out freebies! The food was really good and not expensive, the pool was... More

If you are looking for luxury, bells and whistles of the big hotel chains (LCD TV, reception manned 24/7, airco everywhere) then Galeana Apartments is not for you. If you want to taste the Cretan hospitality, friendly personel and local food then it is OK. The apartments would need some renovation but given the Greek economy of last years I... More

If you are looking for a chilled out, relaxing break in a pretty village type setting on the beach then this is the very spot to be! The warm and friendly atmosphere hits you on arrival and never ceases. Stelios and Manos are a great team in the beach bar, ever attentive and good humoured, nothing was too much trouble;... More

We stayed there for 8 nights and absolutely loved it. The hotel is clean and beautifully decorated with lots of trees and flowers around. It's like a tiny little village with white houses and blue windows. Although the hotel is located in the centre of Platanias it is very quiet and you only need to walk about 100m to the... More

My wife and our little son stayed in total for four weeks and I joined for two weeks in August. This was already fourth time when we decided to choose the Galeana Beach, just because for the long stay, i.e. four weeks - the quality/price ratrion is just okay. Location is excellent, hundred meters straight to the beach without moving... More

Although we were not guests at this hotel, I felt compelled to post a very short review of our experience at the beach snack bar of the Galeana Beach Hotel. (not actually sure if this is in keeping with TA's guidelines, but hey ho) Tuesday of this week we decided to spend the day at the beach and after a... More

We found exactly what we expected... nice, confortable apartments by the sea. The rooms are rather basic and also old (some parts heavily need restoration...), but the whole setup resembles a small village, which is quite picturesque. The beach is OK, but sea is inaccessible on windy days, which is common for all beaches in northern Crete. The breakfast needs... More

There are many brilliant features of this hotel and a couple of gaps that rather let it down. Lets start with the positives: Great location, walk out of your room and step onto the sandy beach. Have a cocktail from the bar overlooking the beach and enjoy the views. The rooms are very comfortable, we had a family room which... More

We stayed as a couple in a standard studio with breakfast only. Rooms are basic, clean and spacious with a small kitchenette and enough cutlery. Thin uncomfy pillows in some rooms. We did not use AC (6 Euro per day). Breakfast is all the same, all the days: boiled eggs, youghurt, jam, tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese (so you can make yourself... More
